Premium Member Gospel ReWrites
I think, and sometimes fear,
we have two ways, maybe more,
to read the four holy gospels,
and any sacred scripture,
and any regeneration/degeneration story
of creative tension,
win/win sweet spot future aspirations
midst win/lose historic raw spots
of past experience.

We can read Earth's inspired articulations

Premium Member THE OLD TYPEWRITER
The other night at the bookstore in a young family strolled
and it didn’t take but a minute for them to make me feel old.

We have an antique typewriter in the store…

The son of the Rain
He is the son of the rain, 
the heavy rain-storm and the thunder.
The son of the three suns and the three sparks
which form, when they clashed together.
the six points of the enigmatic star.
He was the book and he who wrote...Read More

Mortimer Adler
Like emperor Constantine
You were a convert 
to Catholicism on the deathbed.
Fascinated by Thomas Acquinas

and your other heroes:
Etienne Gilson, Jacqes Maritain,
Martin D’Arcy.
You considered yourself a pagan

and wrote a book,
“How to Think About God”,
as a guide for others.
You demonstrate God as the...Read More

Chapters of Life
"Our lives are like a book,
Chapters document the trips we took

In each phase of our lives,
Pen to paper does not lie

Some chapters are light and gay,
Others are tough as we made our way

Others we don’t want to read again,
A few...Read More

The Book of Ages

Has page's
Torn and stolen from it

Reality is dawning 

They are lost forever
More precious than Treasure
Beyond measure

Left only to speculate 
They could have possesed the meaning of life
They could of brought us closer to God

Real debates hard to find
There is no trace of them on face book,
No matter how hard you look,
It is no better,
To go on Twitter,
And you would not want to be talked in,
To having a debate on LinkedIn.

Just for show,

Hold Me in the Light
Hold me in the light,
Right where you are.

That leads to your throne.

So I may live forever.

Dark times, be gone
DARK TIMES BE GONE!

Trying harder getting harder
The Sun rises again, nothing better
Many books are being read
The writers have all rightly said.

Day after day, strength dwindle
Hope cries out, who will rekindle?
Antagonists waiting for your fall
And you'll be done when they call

No answer came, just an utter silence…
In the dark, wanted to feel the warmth of thy closeness
Felt a cold body, lying in a deep sleep, unconsciousness.

“Automatic”




Push me back into
a body of work

Taken three by ten plus two


I visit her to hearken you
Love never left the leaves of
a book written for three


I love green more than blue
I was taken three by ten plus two

What,s Your Story
"We all have a story to tell,
Some we know too well

Mostly for the pain we remember,
And the battles where we were worthy contenders 

Curious though where they reside,
Locked away deep inside

Our own little chapter book,
Few are invited in to look

In The Space Between Words

That book, now lying on the table,
Borrowed from the library,
It is dog-eared and stained,
The print bold and legible,
The space between the lines discernable, 
Has its intents open and bare.
I must read 
The unpronounceable words it contains
That pick on the weaknesses...Read More

Premium Member What happens to the unborn
Where go the unborn?
no breathe shall draw in this world
no rocking or lullabies
no breast shall comfort
no earthly mother to hold
reborn miraculously

From pages the book
divine narratives bestowed
transformed to cherub angels
deliver blessings
illuminate consciousness
creative inspiration

"Scorpion"




Lack of water leads to lack of life
exposed beneath the Sun like blood
from the tip of a Scorpion’s tail

Corporal attitudes aligned in spaces
battle demented servitude in spotlights
stroking the sights of a symbolic death

Only One
Can you experience a lifetime,
inside of a minute

Can you say with one word,
what used to take a book

Can you thank those you love,
with just one smile

Can you see the truth in everything
—with only one look

Dinner Demands
Soon we're having guests for dinner,
Some old friends from out of town,
So you three must mind your manners,
Just as you've been shown.
Jane, as the eldest, your example
Should set the standard:
Remember, you assume the mantle
Of the courtesy demanded.
Now Stella, you are...Read More

Paradiso
As we search the river’s source,
It jumps the banks of our twisted past,
Set sail for the uncharted,
The pale flickering of the pole star,
The ever present circle,
Surrounding, unfolding, revealing,
Where mere words find their ending,
My being extols with creation,
As the unseen manifests,

Premium Member Dementia the last visit
Blank pages in a book 
yet thumbed and coffee stained.
Stared at in bemusement
long lost fairy tales.
No beginning, No end 
the story stays untold.
To turn the page is pointless
as the next page is just the same.
Oh how you loved the author
