Confessions of a Shadow
I am an earthly phenomenon
as common as light itself.
And whereas all other things
exist as sone kind of substance,
as a shadow, I am unique in that
I exist with none of my own;
rather I am dependent on two
essentials – light and the...Read More

How shall I begin,
we say we're not a couple,
but we had been living together 
since I don't know when.
Why I can tell you how the day will go 
by the way she breaks wind.
Now I'll say good morning,

Bad Speller

The question is compelling:
Does being a wiz at spelling
contribute to intelligence?
Truth is, there’s no evidence
it does, though pro and con
debates continue tirelessly on.
The result? Spelling ability
indicates only good memory.
And if yours has never been at
its peak, it’s not a sign...Read More

I Am But I
I am but I,
Not perfect,
Nor do I seek to be,
Those that once clouded my mind,
Gone.

Lessons learned,
Never to be repeated,
Often judged by the way I look, dress, walk, talk,
Belittled, embittered,
Lost

Feelings that once hurt,
Turned,
Now forgotten,
Time moves on, 
Panic, anxiety laden nightmares, fear...Read More

And I was looking for a way to defeat
Fort Sill’s Oklahoma heat.

On Kissing

I recently read a jaw-dropping article
on kissing in a scientific periodical.
Result? I don’t kiss anymore;

still alive, and prayers
have not lost their power,
