Premium Member Family Thanks 1958
The feet of twenty cousins were trampling and pounding the floor
As my Aunt Pearl's house trembled and suddenly became smaller.

that such 24/7 round the clock whether coverage

 Changing Time a Funny Thing
By Franklin Price

Changing time a funny thing
A lot to think about

Before it’s too late

Distant bells clatter on cloud fed weathered skies where
darkness creeps past low light vestibules, faded beams flicker 
Short skirts wave in a winter wind, breezy attributes
revealing fishnet thighs calling to the next hidden passenger,
batting lashes and blowing...Read More

Walk your line
Walk your Line 

A word to the blind:
From the day your first mount and ride
Till the moment you die
Walk your line
Walk proud and high
Through each and every wreck your stride unwinds
Walk your whole heart
spine upright
till it breaks if you like

Hamilton, the Play
All the buzz is justified;
If I’d said different, I’d’a lied.

Of music, all in hip-hop time
With such creative, perfect rhyme.

Bloody Knuckles
Bloody knuckles
Are all that remain
Of what I use to be.
Torn skin,
Scars and scabs,
Memories and
Reminders.

Of a time when I was young
And without ambition
Or caution.
Running through green forests
With friends chasing behind.
A root,
I trip,
And my fingers collide with the dirt.
The soil stings my

Some Bragging Rights
 compound word verse 
Any youngster can make us smile
‘specially when it's our grandchild
they're awesome.

A  new grandson brings on more fun
blond-haired, blue-eyed, the smallest one
cuddlesome.

A twelve-year girl full of joy
an eight-year old busy boy
now threesome.

Time
The clock ticks
When will the world fix
Everyday concerns
As in, equality for all
And an educational system
Where all learn?

No more Ivy League colleges
For bragging rights
All knowledge is to enhance
Ones insight

For employment
No more unbalanced scales
For opportunity
All shall be able to hear
The bell

Beyond the Shadow of my Heart
Beyond the shadow of my heart
Drumbeat continues without pause
Giving my world sense of peace
World engraved with floral design
Of beauty visible in the dark
Leaving me stuck with compassion
With sparks of mystical powers
That ends the dryness in me
To flourish like the rain-
