Nancy
When I was eight years old, Nancy a stringy-haired blond, chose me to be her playmate.  She idolized horses and always played "horsey" with me.  Since I didn't know a horse from a dog in those days, the...Read More

Premium Member Gypsy Winds
Gypsy winds, wind their way
across deserts and plains;
whip the tumbleweeds and 
sands into a frenzy.

Nomad scorpions roam dunes alone,
burrowing deep, to escape 
a tempestuous sirocco.

In lonely places cacti sentinels 
stand vigilant day and night; 
the magic within them, untapped by...Read More

Water lily ballet
Fish swim closer,
To the lily girl,
Who dances on her flower,
They watch her twirl,
She touches the water,
With her toes,
Where the ripples go,
Nobody knows,
Music in air,
She fights off the fog,
That begs her to sit,
Like a bump on a log,
It slows her small...Read More

Premium Member Before Computers
Do you remember before computers
We actually spoke with each other
We cared whenever our kids got sick
And knew the address of our mother

Today we sit at our laptops all day
Surrounded by dirty old dishes
Wearing clothes from a two weeks ago
Smelling like...Read More

Premium Member Who Loves Life
Those who love life, put up your hands
Now let me see, hey you in the back
Don't just sit there like a bump on a log
You're either with us or against us, mac!

You gotta grab life by the proverbial horns
And wrestle...Read More

Premium Member A Million Thanks
I was searching my mind for a theme to choose
for my very first poem of the year
turns out it was an easy choice
to thank some friends who I hold so dear.

I've never met any one of these folks

Oh Happy Day
Oh Happy Day, when you were born.
For many years, my heart did mourn.
Childless I lived amid the throng.
Watching mothers rush children along.
Alone in a restaurant, twirling the ice –
Little girls with bows looking so nice
Brothers and sisters laughing out loud
While...Read More

I’m somebody!  Who are you?
Are you somebody too?
Then there’s a pair of us – do tell!

More worthless than a frog
Who without a name - croaks all day

The Fish and the Frog
"You're frightfully fat," said the fish to the frog,
"and yet you just sit there, a bump on a log."

Frog opened one eye, looked back at the fish,
"In stillness I'm granted my ultimate wish.
If I sit very still," he said with...Read More

My God Will Provide
I want to go to college.
I want to go this fall.
I want to have the knowledge
to not go with my back up against the wall.

I need to find more money.
I need to get a second job. 
I could stay here...Read More

Be Yourself
I am not a wealthy person –
I am not a beauty queen.
I don’t have eternal youth
and my overall purpose is yet to be seen.

I am not an accomplished athlete 
or a famous star.
I tend to be quite ordinary
and I certainly...Read More
