Good Morning Today

Wake up feeling fresh
Have a shower, dry my flesh 
 Out my window bran new day
I love my morning Saturday 

Playful day lots of fun
Underneath summer sun
Plenty daydreams walking dog
Some come true, some get lost

Hole in my shoe

I have a hole in my shoe
I don’t know what to do
I could buy bran new
I could try some glue

Maybe a plaster or two
Silly me there for fingers and knee
I got to think hard 
Maybe some leather and tar

Mastic works...Read More

Premium Member Izabranica, my favorite word
My pools of words are not limited to English.
I was a missionary in France and Belgium, so learned French.
I studied Spanish in college for several years afterwards.

Then cross-trained me into...Read More

Premium Member The Land of Old Man
Welcome to where I stand or sit
Mostly the latter to be real
In my twilight, or golden years
Where the land of old man's the deal

My retirement is impending 
But in the land of old man you'll see
The "Golden" years of retirement
Aren't...Read More

Premium Member HABITS

We wake up in the morning,
Our memory, collecting storing,
The same data over, and over again,	
It becomes entrenched – a habit is due,
What triggers habits, just a simple cue!
We pass a highway that we know well
And put our car into cruise...Read More

Raven Legends
A Shadorma

Oh spectre
of the blackest ink,
satin shroud
ignorance begets terror
though you are a bird.

Poe’s penning
only adds darkness
to legends
greatest plight;
feared by those who believe myth,
unfounded tall tales.

Cailleach did
feast on men’s bodies
in disguise,
a raven,
her dark disguise projecting
into human eyes.

Totem for
the great Bran; guarded

American Man

Just an SUV driving, habitually late American man
High on coffee, low on energy and full of raisin bran
Lured by the social network swept into the dustpan
Looking for lost memories, old friends and a new plan
Never conceding, never really believing in...Read More

My Grains, Deconstructed
This time around, I will not scatter these grains
to land where the weeds might choke them.
This time around, I will collect these kernels
and take them to the gristmill in my head
to crack under all that weight and break free…

Dinas Bran

tell your tales 
share them with me
I have travelled far to listen

your walls remaining 
huddle forward like greyed old men
around a warming fire

let me sit quiet as the night
in your moon shaped shadow 
and dream as you do

Ice cream and water
Why, even bother
Cinnamon peanut, butter
Fresh churn collards
what is the purpose of man
Cooking in saucepans
On the stoves and. . .
candy under the iron
flavored running water, (nobody's trying)
who'd taught us?
taught us
Spring not a well
Floured fishes
Like golden fishes

Enhanced by the lines, of life’s rat race!
A thing of beauty with a story untold,

Is an unconscious mind, full...Read More
