UN learn!

Becoming aware of what,
These long white streaks
In the sky are?
Is like learning
To swim,
Or ride a bike?
Once your eyes
Are open!
You can’t 
See it,
Even if for that
You yearn!
Like swimming
And cycling,
Once you have 
Learned it,
You cannot
UN learn!

Premium Member The Warm and Caring Muse
is so amusing
as warm caring
entirely uncold nondespairing

Yet, curiosity
compels cooperative courage,
while competitions in courage
devour curiosity.

is curious communication
more right-brain prominent
than courageous left-brain dominant,

But, competitive solo performance
is not amusing,
not cooperative,
not a warm inviting environment
for knowing music's resonant lessons,
harmonic and dissonant experience,
atomic affluently...Read More

My little running buddy, my best furry friend 
You came into my life
As a white bundle of goofy bichon
Dressed up as a terrier.
You terrorized our Princess Xena,
And, as a crazy Hallowe’en pup,
Climbed up onto the table
To lick clean butter and...Read More

 He came home early

Who fell several times, over his own words

generation next
growing up
we now have
a son who is
compared to
a free range

he is muscular
cycling around
and karate but
he did go off the
grid and without

cooping up 
or telling what
was thought
to be our fence
he took German

attacked with

A mind decays
Hope is woefully unknown. 
Dreams that last while I’m awake. 
My mind unstable and unsure. 
If I could see inside your head,
What would I find?
Is everything like you say?
Will everything be okay?
They say ignorance is bliss,
But I say it’s a...Read More

Ah, for a King`s burden.

Happy For Once
Nothing like some of grandma's homemade pizza
With some cool slices of watermelon.
She doesn't know it, but I appreciate everything she is.

I arrived and knew I have come home again.

Nothing like relaxing, listening to...Read More

My Wonderful Youth
In yesterday of yore,  tangled in solicitous love
I was once a child.
Laughter and Joy
Fairy tales and toys.
I wondered why..the sun was yellow.
Books, papers, pens and crayons.
I wondered why....the sky was blue.
Pebbles, sticks, sand and clay.
I wondered why... clouds were...Read More

Summer is now over,  
We’ve had lots of fun
Swimming, jumping and cycling
Always on the run.

The other part feels sad.

A seaside town
Bright coloured chalets, (very dear !)
Stand close in military line,
Along the prom, beyond the pier
“NO CYCLING”, please, observe the sign.
The waves roll in with thunderous roar
To dash the pebbles on the shore.

Incongruous lighthouse in the town
Looks out above Edwardian tiles,
Across...Read More
