It lands on tables and under your bed
It also clings to your computer screen
on clothes it goes
and of course
in your food
not in the mood
In the air, everywhere, I don’t care
You can have it mop, cloth, feather duster
I don’t want it
here or there
dust if you must
Scratch me a note of “clean me” on my shelf
If I dust today it will just come back

it seems as though I can't get any out.

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

See how they’ve grown
Into pretty pansies for my garden
How I love to see their smiling faces
In lovely shades
Especially on wet dreary dull days

as brushstrokes form
etches of life’s vignettes in washed-out tones,
Reflecting grim shadows doused by night’s ash
Where black white hints
Through paint of tears which words cannot portray.

fires glowed in
small frowzy shacks
that strange Georgia eve an angel was born.
The sky proclaimed that lives would re-arrange;
with Joy’s first cry,
spring magic -
arrived with Joy.
Her laughter was kindling for hearth and home.
No galas in her future ; she was poor.
Joy would flash
which Joy wore with glee, celebrating life.
As Papa played his guitar for them all,
Joy danced and twirled.
this sunny lass gladdened all of the town.
Humankind exists that we might have joy.
Those touched by that
her cheer to all.
Nevertheless, joy is often short-lived.
One strange spring day, a cold wind blew in. As
thunder quaked, warmth
waned, and Joy

weaving…bringing elements together
A patch of soil, a whisper in the wind
a blackened storm,
making room for it, and letting it grow
Through the years, this tree stood steadfast…solid
tall tree’s wish
soars, touches stars
that whisper to the Heavens, blow kisses
Leaves dance, flirt with breeze in constant motion
seasons fly on,
lives pass by,
tree soaks it in
never drowning, drinking in happiness
Its wood sails in the sea of memories,
waves then crash in
Tree’s ultimate sacrifice, exhausted
Glowing embers now remain, gives soft light
just the right heat,
He always said,
"You are elementary in my life."
It is only now that I understand…
I was his Earth.

lay forlorn, forgotten on battle field

To push love
At first though the love from you came later
I lost mine, rapt in imagination
So time forgot

A good man
Is now tainted
We judge by the shallow sketches painted;
In the crimson, pallid, and cobalt dream,
The devil scheme,
A mean plan.
God bless …
Man is a lie.
Behind closed doors great heroes often cry.

"I open the door and cross the threshold of imagination"
I can see
A place of true hope and of perfect peace
A wondrous world where love conquers the hate
Refuge is found
In still night's
Petitioned upon pillows
Confess sleep’s supplications

These great and powerful creatures will roam.
Step softly on the grass, no noise was heard.
