Long arm gendarme
My mistake namaste
Backpack bivouac
Channeling Kerouac

Brilliant stars, silent nights
Fireflies, Northern Lights
Mountain streams, fresh air
Fall asleep anywhere

Small town, take a chance
Pig roast, barn dance
Allemande left!  Do-si-do!
Spontaneity here we go!

Premium Member INSIDE OUR QUIET WORLD



My parcel of quietude becomes yours
while we listen to the same monastic silence,
gazing at clouds alone and  together
until we rest lovingly inside our gentle, holy world.

Premium Member Valentines' Day At Millville Grade School
As the autumn of my life approaches, some memory fades,
But I still recall very special times from my primary grades.
We did things then, now considered politically incorrect,
Enjoying Valentine and Halloween parties - no one did object!

The Ascension of Me
I was so lonely and speechless, you see?
I couldn’t breathe, so please, oh please…
If only you were completely there for me…
It would put me at ease, so put me at ease

You weighed me down for so long
I just can’t make...Read More

Premium Member Time out of place
The lacquer, the tease, the crimp, of the hair
as we go out in style, mesh tops with flair
the motley choices of fashion pronounced
by the neon signs on our t-shirts no doubt.

Bobby socks and crop tops, spangled and bright,
all bangles and...Read More

Twin Pillars
Is there a balance
Between poetry and prose
Anymore than a balance
between these and those

Is there a balance
Between poetry and prose
Or maybe a marriage
Where ‘heaven only knows’

If there’s a balance
Between poetry and prose
Are there rules to be broken
Where anything goes

Or is the...Read More

Jesus Needs to Cleanse The Sin In Our Churches Today!

Many in church allow things in their life, that don’t belong!
This is why they’re weak,

So much filth from the world is what’s often enjoyed…

Premium Member Abandon
I wish to live with true abandon
experiencing things more at random
Just like the first man Adam
drinking clean water
living with nature in tandem

Garden freedom body exposed
Unconcerned with cars or clothes
Easy does it anything goes
Touch the sky
feel the sand between my toes

Premium Member If There Were Just More Porches
An old house with an old porch
Is a most miraculous thing.
Politics are settled, children admonished,
Babies shown off and growing up, 
Advice shared – we need more porches,
Fewer therapists, values taught, not anything goes. 
Where mothers wait for suppers to cook,
And...Read More

The beauty of the dream
Even fools are allowed in
Misinformed and crawling on narrow stony roads
Yet in this land anything goes
We all have the right to our opinions and views
Apparently even old fools
One day soon
Guns will be taken
So that freedoms truly...Read More
