Star-Gazing
It is neat to gaze upon a star;
light shows the way -- God's route.
Adventuring near, adventuring far
affirming persons who doubt.

Light shows the way -- God's route.
My story is that light can infuse each rift
affirming persons who doubt,
forgetting malice which love...Read More

Somewhere 
or Maybe Far Away Further Still

Come home my friend, 
you have been gone too long. 
You went without me, 
adventuring places, 
I can not go. 

I need to be there. 
I need to make sure, 
things go well.

Childhood Memories!

Premium Member Listening to NonPrevention
For future reference,
it might be best
if I give up radio listening
when going out
to take a rest
from domestic
and national
and international climate mess.

Arrested gardening yesterday.
We need more mulch
fragrant as a hemlock forest retreat,
we are
and yet become
when in our wildly therapeutic
naturally domesticated
sit together

Premium Member Its Not Just A Pen
A pen is more than just a pen;
more than just a recording device.
When I pick up a pen 
I take a journey
to another realm
and to many realms,
I’ve been.

I have many pens,
I collect them;
pens for writing
pens for drawing
pens for hole punching

A Town He Once Called Home
Like a beacon on a hill
The white church steeple gleaming still
For all the many years gone past
It marks the path for home at last

Up and down each tree-lined street
Where childhood friends and neighbors meet
In history and memories rich
The blue jays...Read More

Only a Moment

The whole of a journey still to be traveled
is much like a novel begun
with threads of the story not yet unraveled
and windings of plot to be spun.
We’ve myriad paths to meander, assess.
The hours are long till midnight’s chime.
It seems like...Read More

Searching For The Smuggler's Cave
The cheap thrill
tobogganing down the slope
of the Aberfeldie Park hill
on a piece of cardboard
then adventuring to the smuggler's cave
near the Maribyrnong River
searching for buried treasure....Read More

Adventure In The Outdoors
Paddling, struggling, striving,
We're canoeing and living.
Camping, hiking, sleeping,
We'll be journeying and dreaming.
Eating, singing, lifting,
We are having an adventuring.
Paddling, leaving, packing,
We're going and floating.
Arriving, accomplishing, celebrating,
We'll be returning, our homecoming.
Remembering, wishing, thinking,
We will be having passing memories....Read More

Premium Member Advent Funeral with Birthday
The coincidence of Advent
and the HW Bush eulogies
reminded me of DJ Trump's challenge
to laugh about himself
at least as quickly and quietly as he laughs against others.

As compared to any recent US President,
he comes in dead last
for his appropriate humility,
willingness to...Read More

Premium Member Calling Out Dreams
I've often wondered if my non-verbal
cerebral palsied son
dreams in colors
and/or words
he can hear clearly
but cannot himself see or say,
at least not clearly articulated.

Yet any sounds and gentle touch
we appreciate perhaps too dearly
if that is possible with D,
my wounded son.

So, I...Read More

Premium Member Addiction to Prison
A culture steeped in retribution
becomes blind to freedom's contributions
accessed best through healing restorations,
trust,
virtual stuff
for democracies most resilient.

A society resisting love's innovative brilliance
comic and jazzy improvising resonance
healing ecosystemic egos dissonant
from aquatic wombs of patient advent,

Adventuring winter's iceflows of stark stuckness,
as impatient...Read More

Travelog
I adventure through jungles

And tropical lands, 

I travel deserts over vast area of nothing but sand, 

I sail the oceans on the jet stream

I work on trawlers fishing in the extreme, 

I hide from spies and enemies

I sit on mountain...Read More

   All winter long I have thought of spring,

Premium Member Halloween Fear
It was getting dark and tension is rising
pumpkins alight with eerie smiles gaping.
Flames of orange and red flickering dancing 
children ready to go trick or treating.

Shadows that take on new sinister meaning

Memories of Monkey Bridge

on summer days

with a huge white wicker basket.

Bigger And Better Things
6/24/17


Still adventuring
And endeavouring

Not always remembering
What the schools have been lecturing

Items needing sheltering
Or there will quickly be weathering



Many folks working hard at mentoring
And others just blethering


Unfettering
Then untethering

Onto bigger and better things
Don't for once, think it all won't ever sting
You'd be suprised...Read More

The Destruction of All Mirrors
The road less traveled is the road worth adventuring,
And a distance unseen is a distance worth measuring:
Such is the path taken by a soldier of great valor,
Once embattled by storms, once a face of sickly pallor,
Now is black with soot...Read More

My Soulmate Is A Pilgrim, Mercury in Retrograde
My soulmate is a pilgrim, 
He explores the zodiac’s constellations
Not always in our own Milky Way, he treks
His journeys enlighten mankind
Because he aims his bow hunting faith in Sagittarius
And swims with emotional artistry in Pisces
He judges mankind with Libran scales

Millennial Madmen
Millennial Madmen						

We are the crazy and we are mad,
Give me your broken and give me your sad.
The united flawed a beautiful mess,
The brilliantly odd an absolute guess.

Volcanic dark stars are boiling brews.

LIFE
Life...
On the wake of a new morning...
With countless hopes ascending...
And endless dreams ever knocking...
In excitement of a new beginning...
By persuasions smoothly rolling...
Sometimes with courage unrelenting...
Other times terrible and despairing...
Into desertions of lights dimming...
Yet in irresistable stages unfolding...
Each at a time...Read More
