Flowers in the Sand
Time’s like water – it runs through your hands 
Before you know it, you’re an old man
Don’t be one to question how you lived out life’s demands
While missing the flowers in the sand

Tell her that you love her
Don’t let another...Read More

Cardboard mattress
I bet your beds comfy,
I imagine it smells of flowers and vanilla,
Or just the smell of clean,
And you have pillows,
Big soft voluptuous pillows,
And sheets,
Clean sheets.
I could sleep forever in a bed like that,
Literally forever,
And I bet you don’t even think...Read More

I Never Really Knew My Dad
I Never Really Knew My Dad (A Memorial Day Tribute) 

I never really knew my dad
As well as I wish I might;
He was a sailor in World War II
In the great Pacific fight.  

He survived the war but died...Read More

In the West, each day in magical!
Why that is, is skyrocket-phenomenal!
Smiles are plentiful here,all year round,
You can discover them, all over town.
The weather varies all over the state.
So grateful to be here, 'tis my poetic fate.

Dig this baby
You think I look pretty good
But you don’t know me at all
It would appear that I have it together
But dig this baby I’m not done yet

Who would have thought
That I would be here now
I can’t explain it at all

The Eightieth Trimester, Part I
Huxley was in his nineteenth year,
a freshman at a fancy school,
the kind with excesses of ivy,
who claimed they accepted no fools.

The academics were no task,
he’d always excelled with his mind,
but finding like souls to fit in with
was giving him a...Read More

Be here now
Watch soul endow

Don't ask why
Embrace each sigh

See joy spawn
A lovely dawn

Feel deep proof
Come to know truth

Each a drop
As ocean pops

Love sets free
Prize what you see

In due time
Old jukebox chimes

Wet rain hurls
Dry leaves uncurl

Wit works well
Jazz fashions tell

I am a pause.
A pause from reality.
a pause from obligations and duty.
I am an undefined moment of time,
a sceond, an hour a year or even
an eternity.
My name goes beyond definition as I 
have many names and take many forms..

I am...Read More

Dance In The Mist

A dance in the mist
You'll surely be missed
Like blessed nostalgia
It worms into your heart
Like retroactive reactions
Of everything you failed to do
In the moment so blind
Gaining sight ten years later
Both a gift and a curse
And it hurts so bad your chest...Read More

A simple vow:
To be here now

A plain good cheer
To be now here

A way of grace
To live this space

A clear calm pace
To meet each face

A touch of feel
To truth that heals

To dance and feel

A humble fest

To be Here Now?

Be present then
Right Here not when

No future spawns

rolling dice
Days of endless struggle
More hopeful pills today
Trying to appear 'normal'
In some sort of way.

It seems that the struggle
Is always here with me
And I wouldn't be here now
If guilt would leave me be

I know there's been many
Who've had it worse than...Read More

Opt plain vow:
Be here now

Grace moves joy:
Play and ploy

Love lives best:
Soul’s sure quest

Words craft health:
Touch owns wealth

In calm peace:
Forge deep ease

Just be you:
That will do

Live code right:
Love and light

Come what may:
Walk your way

Wise words live:
Learn to give

Wealth you share:

Love as a Fairy-tale
If love was meant to be a fairy-tale
Should I ever want it to fail
I would wake everyday as it was spring
And there would be flowers and bells to ring

It would mean I would sleep through at night
When there would be...Read More

If I am to write a poem on love,
then I straight away think of you.
Older and wiser, offering unconditional
open hearted, opened armed embrace.

A love that knows what it is like
to be born into a war zone.
A love to step in...Read More

Premium Member HAIKU PASSAGE 2


Touch describes
Beyond good sense;
Sure feelings speak


Be here now:
Mindfulness greets 
Haiku in-transit


To go somewhere
Be now here;
Or nowhere near!


Be as no-thing
Be mindful --
All is empty

sandy walk
The sandy walk  
On the long and wide beach, 
I can, at a distance, see an elephant, an unusual sight 
on this Nordic Shore; 
but as I get nearer it retracts, and become sea mist
Overhead sea-gull resent me being...Read More

Premium Member SEEING

Be here now
Let sight wow

Sense soul see
What can be

Look more deep
Wake from sleep

Rise and shine
Be not blind

See truth plain
Watch again

Loss speaks well
You can tell

Words are masks
Glitch breaks fast

Know odd blame
Just the same

In due time
Breaks switch rhymes

Sad but true
It's just you

Still voice says:
Be here now.
Still poise plays:
Why and how.

Feel grand joy
Dance with cheer;
Move fine ploy
That lives here.

Watch and see
How love feels;
Know and be
Soul that heals.

Dare bold steps
Faith and hope;
Live mind map
Bear love's scope.

Day by day
Live clear zest;
Play by play
