Premium Member The Yellows are Winning
the yellows are winning
dandelions and daffodils leading the way
sun shines her yellow on the earth
spring prances into sight with bird trill tune

the yellows are lively 
adding happiness to the season
as we plant yellow marigolds 
surrounded by tiny butterflies showing their...Read More

Premium Member He was a Gnarly Snarly Tree Root
He was a snarly, gnarly, encumbered tree root.
Diving into the earth in the most twisted, gnarly way.
His attitude was gnarly too, and he was thickening.
Why me? He demanded. What did I ever do?
There was only silence until a curious worm...Read More

Stalk the earth
Ordinarily extraordinary 
You will smell it, taste it
If you come close 
Desire and madness
Poignant, potent

People like us
Cannot be constrained
By the cages of this world
Rules and restrictions 
Do not apply
We are restless, strong
Spirits of the wild
Pacing, hunting

Premium Member ASH WEDNESDAY
Black, gritty, sooty signs
Painted on the foreheads
Of humanity parading about.
My thumb would be black
For several days following
The signing of so many foreheads,
The dark soot engrained
Within my right thumb print.

Ash Wednesday is a magnet
That draws people, compels people
into the dark oak...Read More

Carried away, on a breeze meant for summer
gathering sights left alone for a while
Spreading my wings up above where shes resting
wandering free in my own empty style

Singing along with a meadowlark choir
landing a branch that is lonely of leaves
Drifting along...Read More

Premium Member Survival

Most of us on earth 
Engage each day
To just survive
For one more day..
Fear and desire dictate
A form of bondage
For most..who must
By wit and courage
Play roles which give
Credence to a reality
Of many things..while
Ignoring each her own 
Veiled Reality..
A heavy price by

Plot of Garden
I spy the plot of dirt,
And contemplate its worth 

Covered with brambles and weeds,
Or planted with foods that I need

Will my work to prepare the soil,
Be rewarding enough for my toil

I decide the therapy of a garden,
Beats the devil’s bargain...Read More

Premium Member the time trick
Take a train across the country
To savor the landscape of waste
Green valleys and mountaintops
Sinking in airy blankets of the clouds
And snake-like rivers lazy winding 
Through the surface of terrains
Providing earthly blood-water
Through the veins of canyons 
To the abundance of life...Read More

Premium Member Better Health Crisis Planning
How much simpler
and yet vastly more complex,
diversely resonant,
past decisions to hire the credentialed professional elite
also choices not to hire a charismatic

And how much more resilient
urgently cooperative
corporate win/win covenant repercussions might have been
if we stopped compartmentalizing,
and started intersectionalizing,
co-arising and co-gravitating
Win/Win assertiveness...Read More

The Earth is quiet.. the Earth is still.
Only I exist in this very moment..
In all my complexity and freewill.

Uniquely created  like DNA.

WARNING: Saguaro

I wandered e'er so stiffly, speaking to loneliness,
Got dead to desire at the start, deaf to silence,
This remained an arduous journey of despair,
Beneath a broad unforgiving expensive sky,
Destitute, I went hither, on equal ground,
Dreamt damp beds per sensitive trudge,

when you look at me
you can see straight through

even if i drop everything

an observing ghost

Pastel clouds drifting across the painted heavens,
On a tranquil journey that never slows,

Floating radiantly against astronomy's lightly glows,
Will we ever know?

Golden orbs of life, just watch...Read More

To warn everyone
About the future of earth

For thousands of years

Causing the sea levels to rise

Glacial ice melts drip by drip
warmed by the silicon chip.
And as waters worldwide rise
floods will come as no surprise.

Tinder forests are burning
conservation needs learning.
For those uprooted by drought
will find there is no way out.

Mega storms will terrorize

When Yin was growing down
and into belonging
still in EarthMother's warm wet womb,
she followed her interdependent 0-wheels
of enscripted color and sound octaves,

Appreciation for multicultural sensory integrity,
primal relationships of sight and scale
felt polyphonic longing and/or belonging,
meta-physical creolization,

Nothing shall save you from the flames. Sizzling, you’ll flee to and fro,

All your past joys. Alas, too...Read More
