I was born there 
in a naive village
now this is my city
I walk on the city path

now I walk by the royal path
like the mouth of hungry child

suddenly there piece of onion

I want to write about Christmas cookies, 
Angels that hang on the tree, 
and look at me…
then smile.

I want to write about Mistletoe, 
and first kisses,
red cheeks,
red noses, 
and roses. 

I want to share the feeling that I...Read More

Rebecca

Daughter of The King. 
Your namesake blessed a nation, 
be proud. 
You began life, 
ahead of most. 
Already you were glorified, 
held high by your parents. 

Don’t let any take you down, 
as they are all less than you.

An open heart, 
an open hand, 
a way to say, 
He is in command. 

Placing others above yourself, 
ever trying to reach, 
a point that you may know
His will. 

Kneeling, bowing, 
trying to follow,

Evil Woman

You are part of me, 
I wish that were not true. 
Even now, 
I long to be lost. 
I have heard today
again, 
yet one more, 
reason to believe, 
your level of hate, 
had no end.

Dark is the Art

Lies. 
Evil made up, 
hiding in plain site…

Judgments made, 
of others, 
that can not see, 
the color
of their own robes. 

It is easy. 
No glasses, 
No special view, 
or mirror effect…

Lies.

Our Tree

The green tree in the box, 
kept in the attic, 
is in pieces. 
Not because it is dead, 
or firewood, 
but a project
to be assembled. 
Much like our life, 
from the beginning of I do, 
lovingly placed together,

Your Words

He…, 
put me on the ground. 
He yelled.
He screamed. 
Sometimes…
he was obscene. 

I walked on. 
I wanted to live, 
the perfect life. 
The picket fence, 
and no strife. 

Two kids, a yard, a house. 
A mouse in the kitchen,...Read More

Letters unsent, 
to people…
that wish they had received them. 
Maybe not write away, 
or all at once, 
but eventually. 

Harsh words spoken, 
throughout the year, 
people with a past…
they can not leave. 
Maybe something;
they are dragging behind.

Do not waste more time!

It is fire and spit,
thin water and urine. 
All lies from city folk. 
The swamp smells, 
it is dying. 
No new water, 
just the old cesspool inlets, 
all the outlets, blocked. 

Cockroaches running,

Washing Instructions

Put the clothes in the washer. 
not quickly, but slowly. 
There was a day, 
this would all be done, 
by hand. 

Four or five large things, 
Maybe some socks, 
a few, 
overload, 
and the cost will be high.

A little more money,

exactly what they needed. 

For less, I could choose,

Straps, and wire, 
cutting ropes…
that make you bleed. 
Not that anyone can see, 
but they are there. 

We all have them. 
Some are worse then others. 
Some have lives,
that never…
feel peace.
The word safe, 
never spoken. 
Unknown.

Happy is a great way to be. 
Being saved is so true. 
It lifts the heart, 
and makes one want to sing, 
and makes others think
you are crazy.

Click-ity clack,

I have one, 
or at least sort of. 
I have one,

growing up. 
Divided families do that, 
they get confused,

Traditions are hard to hold,

You have brightened my life.

The small church sanctuary was empty. 
Well, not really, that is never exactly true. 
There are always angels, 
playing in the rafters, 
tiptoeing across the piano keys, 
or chasing each other, 
back and forth among the flowers.

In a box, 
a cake is hidden. 
I opened it slowly, 
and looked inside. 
All I found…
was a bag, 
and dust. 

Add this, mix that,

The mistake, 
was in the flurry.
