The old woman walked the empty streets past houses painted white,
She heard the sounds of youthful laughter through open windows.
The wind blew autumn leaves around her tired feet- her coat held no warmth,
She feels the aches within her weathered body...Read More
More Christmas Thoughts
appreciation, christmas, emotions, love,
Christmas is the vital principle of giving,
And without thinking of receiving;
It is happiness because we see positive stimulus in people.
It is forgetting all the troubles and hoping for goodwill;
It is neglecting the meaningless and the worrying,
While with the true...Read More
The Kissing Bug
emotions, feelings, kiss,
What is about lips and like to kiss,
For it makes a romance hit or miss.
What is about lips in having osculation,
Making the lips shudder with expectation?
What is about lips in a peck,
Which gives a bite on the neck?
What is...Read More
He Is My Man - KH
He's only a man
I am a patient woman;
With no more emotional pain
If I want your heart to gain;

And leave you without sorrow;
I give you only love and bliss
I also seduce you with a French kiss.
She will...Read More

conflict, courage, dedication, fate, imagery, mirror,
A broken people hearts and souls and a land ravaged and destroyed,
Look closely at how the earthenware pot was smashed- small repairs.
A broken list of lives, remembered once now forgotten- remember!
Like a mirror that has cracked fallen from its rusted...Read More
THE LONELIEST TIME OF THE YEAR
couplet, family, holiday,
the air is pregnant
with aromatic spices –
to gather round matriarch –
the neighbours gossip
about their own grandchildren—
gaily wrapped presents
her children are all
employed in overseas jobs –
her hearth is empty
she sweeps already clean street
in front of...Read More
imagery, mirror, remember,
Outside my closed window pass the young men, black hair and bronzed bodies,
Once I held such a man close to me-felt his strength and saw his beauty.
Inside my old mirror the one we gazed into to admire our reflections once,
The Would Be Poet
humorous, inspirational, meaningful, satire,
THE WOULD BE POET
I have; committed some crimes in my life
But none worse than one gives me strife
As to have the gall to call oneself, a poet
With every line wrote, you clearly know it
But: it is my sin and total...Read More

I behold and tied my mind.
I AM YOU ARE OUR AMOUR
husband, life, love, wife,
I AM, YOU ARE: AND OUR AMOUR
I am with you, with me you are
That’s our divine bond of amour.
You are clear, transparent, distinct
Fight for Freedom-eleftheria
endurance, fear, freedom, political, prayer,
We stood on a snowy mountain and together we feared fear,
all our bravado now just words- but we cannot steal them back.
Our whitewashed homes sit empty and idle awaiting our return,
yet, we know many of us will not and they...Read More
Great Wall of China and then some
allusion, analogy, appreciation, corruption, freedom, judgement,
Block by block it starts to rise, Great Wall of China begins,
A barrier to stem the hordes, marauding Mongolians,
Must be bigger and better, than ever attempted before,
Also should be breathtaking, far into the clouds will soar.
Where the hell do...Read More
IN GOD'S HANDS
god, life, men,
To think that our life is into our hands is but an illusion
For it is our Lord who guides all of us to take each decision!

Pure laughter can serve as protective hedge
when life seeks to push one over the edge.

Constantly, I strive to please the Lord by faith, led by the...Read More
The Lost Fisher Boy Christmas Story
Playing at night on rocky ground, he sprained his foot.
He hobbled onwards careful where his foot he put.
The lonely shepherds had long returned to their sheep,
But he wanted to see before he went to sleep.
Shepherds said that angels sent them...Read More
betrayal, break up, dark, first love, grief,
True loves kiss
Is one that you cannot miss
What no one tells any though, is it’s just a lie
And will always end with one saying bye
Then comes the pain
That will only bring the rain
Suicide is not an option
But it does...Read More
Food Never Tasted So Good
appreciation, food, senses,
Food Never Tasted So Good
Pepper seeds jumping and, popping; within my hot cast iron bowl
Aromatic: their provocation eagerly waiting to season a good soul
Indiana Shaw . . . ; )
Musical mantra’s swirling around my head, body and soul
Gently releasing tensions as allowing me to reach my goal
Reaching higher levels of subconscious, is communication
Where: there are no chains, constraints or wilful dictation
One does not walk here, but: fly’s like...Read More
courage, forgiveness, growth, pain, perspective, relationship, sorrow,
The past uncut ties,
A dimly lighted candle in a distorted guise,
Confessions we try to melt inside lies,
Burn the brightest in our eyes.
The grave we carry around bearing its name,
Is written all over us just the same,
The things we let go...Read More
