Sadly, we still suffer,
from the slings of other's arrows.
So many lost souls,
with minds that continue to narrow.

With just a whisper,
they will always hear your sound.
Hence they come running,
by leaps and bounds.

Sometimes the grass looks greener,
within a stone's throw.
Far sadder is...Read More

I swore I would never live in a small town.
I wanted noise, people and the 
roar of the crowd.
Crowded restaurants, highways,
Exhaust fumes galore.
Sounds of police cars all over
town.
Lounges, theaters and 24 hour
anything!
Those bright lights, you know?
And twenty-four action, no...Read More

My gardens have grown by leaps and bounds thanks to incredible amounts of
rain in the past two days; every piece of vegetation seems taller, and healthier.

Yepper, once body functions cease
asper this ole codger,
mere seconds after expiration,
sans existential lease
immortality avails rubbery piece

In The Rug Gad Throes Of Anticipatory Anxiety
Frenzied anguish precipitated Matt chew

Chaos in Laos
Looked up and down, right and left
Wondering why life suffers a theft
Subtracted beauty from my chin cleft
 
If I deserved and preserved the best
My love could lavish to attest
Why my love passed a preset test
 
Under dodgy durations of circumstances

From generation to generation
Times have changed so much
By leaps and bounds
Back when technology did not exist
I grew up in a family of 13 kids
Survival was the game of life
Working hard day and night
Trying to make a better life
Nothing was easy

With hot crispy French fries, by leaps and bounds?

Family Ties
What is the meaning of 'family ties'
Is the meaning lost in lies

We strive to hold it all together
Although we're not birds of a feather

With different lives and much to do
we need our families, me and you

We laughed and cried, had...Read More

In These Last Days
In these last days
Knowledge grows by leaps and bounds; 
Science and technology are amazing, 
The invention of robots and gadgets abounds.

In these last days
Man is occupied by earthly endeavors; 
The world's end will come like a thief, 
Signs say judgment...Read More

LITTLE BOBBY
Little kids have a natural curiosity
that can catch us off guard too often.
Like little Bobby, who went into the kitchen and said,
"Mom, can I ask you a question"?"

"Okay", says she, "I've time for a few".
"I just wanted to know...how old...Read More

We met, in yesterdays, we long held dear
Once found our hearts leaped;
Great times, golden moments so clear,
sweet harvests were reaped.

Walking we, sang in tune;
Our love became deep and so proud,

Bad News Travels Fast
Bad news likes to travel fast,
Much quicker than the good
And you can’t stop it even if
You pause to knock on wood.

It’s like a snowball, growing as
It barrels down a hill,
Unstoppable and uncontrolled
As oil from a spill.

Growing Up

Growing a little more every day
the clothes worn in summer
not fitting today

Growing each day by leaps and bounds
independent at play
new discoveries found

Growing and changing, days going by
baby curls are long gone
and your distinct infant cry

AC in Arizona
Lord only knows how the settlers survived
When in Arizona's desert they arrived

I visited there in late November
And the piercing heat I still remember

Brought to this state renewed attention

Many homes were built...Read More

Never Stop Dreaming
Treasures lost, treasures find
So many treasures deep within the mind

So much that once was lost

Surpassing all your wildest dreams
By leaps and bounds
So many journeys have been taken
Behind these sleepy eyes
Soaring with glorious wings
Into the starlit skies

ANGELS ALL AROUND
Spiraling down the steps of life

With its orange hue
