Premium Member It's A Dog's Life

A dog's life is eat, sleep, poop and pee
At times they go for a walk, run wild in the field
We couldn't do without them
Bringing warmth and sunshine
Greeting us at the door after venturing afield

Picture several feet of snow, Pa!
Don’t be clumsy with your packing, Sir!
Of fluffy white fields, you’ll be in awe.
Afield Southern climate, you’ll feel the brr.

Pack your woolen coat and boots, Dad!
Don’t forget warm socks, silk underwear, Pop!

half seen in the shadows
a film of images
monlit velvet. blue deep
a pale stone in the dark

hers to my love forever weds
singing songs that passions entreat
to invite joy to lover's bed
tho' Fate oft dances as it cheats.

The Forest And The Trees
Quantum Superposition,
  forever preying on our minds

Refusing to admit what consciousness knows,
  its theory never finds

The more complex the argument,
  the further afield it falls

Roaming and scattered amidst the trees,
  blind to the forests call

Oddly unsettling,
how The UnHolonic Spirit compels conservative,
defensive feelings
of autonomous ego-righteousness
when we see our physically healthy robust selves
elitely privileged,
maybe even aristocratically WinLose kleptocratic
as short-term necessary
for ego's Business As Usual convenience.

Creator of WinLose GetReal natural systems,

A flight of fancy,
though real as the night,
flight into midnight,
perhaps somewhere beyond.
Unseen but clearly heard
imposingly far above, sound,
jet scream and beyond ,
perhaps beyond the night.
Briefly suspended
in unfamiliar home,
unsure in a foreign home,
the dream is of comfort
more foreign.
Flight beyond fancy
of strangers

Behind A Frowning Providence -Isaiah 45: 14-25
Walking in this dark world of woe
it seems that even as God's chosen child
our God seems so often to be so distant
leaving His own alone among what's wild

But in reality, God is always there
looking and watching over His dear one

Kavanaugh grew up in a cave
Never learned how a judge should behave
This caveman likes beer
And ladies must fear 
Becoming this drunkard’s sex slave

Despite his bad manners revealed
Kavanaugh might not be repealed
He’s t-rump’s first choice
To kill Roe v Wade’s voice
And take...Read More

The Dream Wanders Far Afield
The dream wanders far afield,
in search of a kindred tribe
that to cynics does not yield,
by princely sums not bribed. 

Far and wide, it sees many a face
that it can scarce recognize,
specimens of a hybrid race
born of wanton compromise. 

Oh where...Read More

Distance And Separation
There is an emptiness
  between Hemingway’s words

A hollow sound
  that slides off the page

The space creates distance
  as the Old Man wanted

From the reader
  and voyeurs of pain

“Distance between himself and the day

My Jouncing Gait During Boyhood
(an All Poetry feat to walk in 
the poetic feet of Robert Frost)

Early twentieth century New England
awash with dynamic harmonic leisureliness,

Divided Circle
When the robin builds it's nest
to herald in the bloom
Thawed trails to open up
a mountain's coveted woods

And afield the animals stir
as a fragrance of nuts, berries
and honey lingers there

Amidst the growing greens
and unchanged evergreen
that time did mark a difference on

The Castle In The Gloom
On Devon’s moors I found myself
walking to clear my head,
to shake off loss for just a bit,
and see a color other than red,
feel something other than dead.
A fog surrounded me that day,
but something stood within the gray.

It rose up high...Read More

The Nudge
Desolation smoothed at the calming of the swell,
begrudgingly accepted solitude, vacationed in Hell,
nails are sore and broken from the scratching of the well,
strengths gained through weakness?  Only time can tell.

Sorcerer's Doom
Deep inside where shadows lounge
True love was lost no magic found

Our Litter, Our World

Of many a surround, complexities be found
Containers lying moist, a decision or a choice
Yet further on afield, a glance at orange peel

Rustling wind o’ waste, left in sudden haste
