Space me
A peace of mind 
Walking by myself at a decent time 
No one to check on me 
At least I’m fine
Lower my standards 
A million zillion reasons to
Believe in me 
As I’m reaching you
Every evening new experiences 
This crib I...Read More

Life is a balance of holding on and letting go
Where we weighed both quality of joy and sorrow
We live, we love, we cry, we understand
Sometimes too, we ask dumbfound.
Life is a gift, that is given
Uncomparable to other essential things
The mystery...Read More

"Good morning. Jesus Loves You," I say
To passers by, with my calm shalom
I feel good, they feel good. But ought we?
Since Columbus sailed the Ocean blue ...
There's been a holocaust on the earth
The other one, against the environment
They can't stop...Read More

Sun in September
A breeze in the air.
A day without a care.
The sun shining bright, at night it's still light.

A walk in the park.
Children playing.
Crisp blue sky, green green grass.

Holding your lovers hand.
Birds singing from up above.
The sun in September.

Didn't you not go to me?

How did I seethe, because an elongation of an entanglement is the alter-alto as the Omega cake..?

So swimmingly,
I'm finishing the date,

I'm even allowed to procreate,

say that today as we all wander in the phase,
the glistening...Read More

Children are playing and running along your path
And as time goes by, they grew into adult
Memories they left in...Read More

Void spaces
Since the first bomb blast in my town,
I began talking to winds in strange languages.
Since bayonets had been replaced by rapist-soldiers,
I started building tin-nests on tall branches.
Since bullets became drunk with madness of
Trigger happy men in uniform, I have exiled
My...Read More

Premium Member Rehashing History: Christopher Columbus, a man with a plan
Columbus was not the slightest bit offended
At King Ferdinand's dismissive sound
When he declared the world was round,
His was not a plan that very many comprehended.
Though the queen, Isabella,
Thought Chris a fine fella,
Her spouse wanted nor hair nor hide of it.

Earth Marble
The earth is beautiful at the end of the Milkyway;
The blue-green marble in space some would say.

A planet like no other known;
Full of a variety of life grown.

The earth has over 114 elements that formed its circular mound;
Simple and complex...Read More

I love AFRICANAMERICAN Christian Culture: Forgiving slaveholders and Tyrants
Some serious religious sophomores claim Christ ('Witness' Bluff)
Almost like Columbus: to hit the Other, take their STUFF

Nothing Doing here; I am a Minister of Jesus' Gospel
For the same Reason they fled HERE to Native Indian lands

Catholics to Lord Baltimore's Maryland,...Read More

Two Cigarettes And A Beer
Two cigarettes and a beer, dear
That's how long I'll be here
If you never show
Then I'm gonna go
After two cigarettes and a beer.

You know I'm not big on forgivin’
And not much for talkin’ things through
But if you’ll swing on by
I'll give...Read More

Old English Lawns
unseen hands watered and caressed
emerald tinted aquamarine green
O the most beautiful natural lanscape
Not even lawn furniture, or modern waterhose
O the gratitude for this interruption of civilzation
How you overcame drought, all weather extremes
showing neither bruises, nor memories of hurts

Six o`clock 
In the morning
Is the best time
To get up when it is summer
Stay on the terrace
Inhale the air
Before it gets hot
Make a coffee
Just being alive
Elderliness is to be grateful
For little things

Whimsical Ziggy Starman Space Odyssey
Your whimsical 
Words and whiles and ways

On the dark side of the moon
Only the true believers 
Are destined to see
