Jaspers are a gifted lot; 
they mimic many things.  
From poppies to a leopard’s spots, 
their pictures really sing.  

It weighs much less than many stones; 
in it you’ll see colored fissures, 
holding abstract stories, all homegrown;
such lovely...Read More

About Marbles Are Many Theories
About Marbles Are Many Theories

About marbles there are many theories,
So we then decided to develop a series,
Name of mess,
A wild guess;
Called them agates, steelies and clearies.

I Don't Always Understand
6/26/17

Skies with an occasional rainbow
While organisms and plants across the terrain grow
Just trying to take care of business and lay low
Whichever way I go
This is real life not no game show
Nobody is perfect and has a halo

Better late than never

     His jaw tightened in an eerie grin,

Addendum

The prerequisites have been established.
The requirements have been met.
The struggles have been suppressed.
The strife is the burden that coexists.
Now when it is time to make a transition,
We must not ignore that
The United States Constitution is in need of political activism...Read More

HEALING STONES
The healing stones rest.
Fondled and smoothed by
Fingers as gently as Hail Mary beads,
Of those seeking grace- Questing new life,
Stilled by hands uncertain of
Direction or destiny, begging to rise
Like the Phoenix from fiery ashes.

The colors of agates, crystals,
And rose quartz, erased...Read More

Eternal granite, crystalline scree, agates, boulders, rise
to hills, towering tors,* mutinous mountains, endlessly growing
rising, lifted,  then toppled by the fiery rebirth of draconic lava**

Like the cracked shell of an avian egg***/ **** both molten yolk
and watery albumen mark the...Read More

My life, like everybody else’s, is a treasure trove
with a mine from which one’s treasures are derived.
The familial bonds we form are platinum; our friendships gold.
These are precious ores that most souls are born to find with ease.

My
poet’s 
life (not known
then as such) flowed
along life’s swift course
rippling with glee and roaming youth’s chasms.

It then streamed relentlessly to the Now.
I polish agates
left in its wake
so I can
display
them.

Eggs and Agates
Sometimes, when I gaze at thee
I am confused by what I see
Some kind of dichotomy

Eggs and agates

Protective shell
Fragile
Easily broken
Fluid thoughts and emotions within
Needing warmth and nurture
To spark the life contained
To grow
To fly

Eggs and agates

Hard
Roughened by life and time and experience
Tough
Dulled...Read More
