Premium Member A Contagious Commentary Of Closure
It’s another day here 
Without much to cheer 
Are we negotiating with this invisible threat? 
Who got what it wanted to get 
If this is God’s will it’s pretty bold 
Challenging humanity wondering if it’s ready to fold
Watching the global...Read More

Premium Member Healing a Trumpian God
I remember several prayers
to invoke God's blessings on America
as a reminder of traditional political mindfulness?
Fundamental awareness of our economic investments
in win/win GoldenRule
positive social-psychological security.

No one "keeps"
or "makes"
this confederation of uniting states great,
unless we democratically cooperate with them
for mutually developing resonant...Read More

Premium Member Calling Children Mean Names
When little human babies are told at birth
How stupid, dumb and ignorant they are
Incalculable damage occurs even if done with mirth.
Feelings of worthlessness follows their star.

Damage like this is not easily undone.
Being called mean words is truly not fun.
It remains...Read More

His Last Birthday
Spring or autumn, leaves bloom or fall,
Everything seemed to offer me immense happiness 
As long as we stayed together.
Harshest of weather, extremes of cold
Still felt quite romantic
Because the warmth from him was better than that of a jacket.

Monsoons were our...Read More

Someone please show us the way.

That make many a man very proud
Making you feel and see your life as a failure
While you have never being a failure
Because you have never being an adventurer

Dwell On The Value of Milk
Having been brought up in the country
living close to a farm we got our milk

Remembering early days at primary school
there you got a carton of milk each day

Premium Member Neighbours
A resilient addict with corona

Believes he is immune as a stoner

Puts Mary Jane on the mask

And Jimmy Beam in his flask

Fortifies his deluded persona

Quite soon though his supply is depleted

In withdrawal he feels so mistreated

Smokes sanitizer

And fertilizer

Wrapped in loo roll...Read More

Caught in the middle with nowhere to go
Between two strong-willed women
Manipulators according to their wiles
Related to one by blood
The other by dint of wedlock
Which one has the greater pull
On the tide of his wracked emotions
The chosen controller of his home
Or...Read More

The Window
The Window

She sat outside.
In the distance, the sea.
Dusk, her favourite time.
Content at a day well spent.
The promise of more.
She worried, she always did
The petty and the grave
She worried.
Through the window, she saw
The light illuminate the love.
A girl hug her Father.

lion dreams of impossible dreams

An old lion
Roars in his sleep
Recalling an impossible dream

In his dream
He was a man
Who was chasing a dream 
Chasing an impossible dream

The man 
Was haunted 
By a dream girl

A girl who appeared

Mother Nature
Mother Nature
I gaze at the beauty of my surroundings
I am thankful and realize I'm truly blessed. 
I call on Mother Nature's Divine energy
And Breathe it in deeply, way down into my chest.

I feel her energy coursing through me

I beat my heart
The language of "being"
escapes language alienation
we don't say, "I beat my heart, - 
but, "My heart beats"
even as "I breathe"

Babies are born OUT of the world
Much as flowers flower
The Earth peoples
Said the Man
Yet we say, "I was born into the...Read More

Call of plea
The sun burning my skin, 
Not an inch of pain over the red.
My head keeps spinning 
yet pinned in a dead end. 

What I once saw as the future 
is now a cloud of dirt. 
One rain will be enough

The Devil Went Back To Heaven, Part IV
...This was the end of Rob’s fantastic tale,
we stood their blinking and scratching our heads,
then Rob leapt up with the vigor of youth,
when merely minutes ago he’d been dead!

"The Faces of Man"

The faces of Man
held in the hand 
of Mephistopheles 

blood sells white and red
pontificating with two fingers

consuming greed for

curves of their crooked bends

By Franklin Price

So you're tired of being quarantined
Are at home and off the street

Take out's all there is to eat

Could try to fix some for yourself
With the help of family
Who knows, it could be edible
