Take a deep breath,
Then let it out.
Where does it go?
Do you know?
Does it die when you sigh?
Does it mingle with others?
those of your sisters and brothers?
Is it the very breathe of God,
That was given to man?
Is it still there since...Read More

Going, going, gone,
dissipated one by one.
As I watched, they drifted by,
On the breath of a sigh.
One by one,
High in the sky.
As they sailed t'ward
The hot rising sun,
One by one,
Going, going, gone.

Slightly above my consciousness
 I dream and tangent followed by unsure tease 
Cleft between the sadness
Parallel virtue subconsciousness 
They dreams Enchanted is mine
Beyond the purple vision

Subdued Passions 
Subjected relations
Likely below my suspicions
My reality uncertainty leading...Read More

Mother Earths Death Knell
Was it not God who created man and said go forth and multiply and now we
have over populated this beautiful mother earth, who cries in her distress as
to what God has done to her . . .

Premium Member OUR MADNESS
I shut my eyes and hope it goes away.
Our slippery slope of greed and neglect.
But to take action we always delay.

This climate warming has set in to stay.
The ice-sheet meltdown is just one effect.

Falling waterfalls

Boys in the Yard
See them bully boys in the schoolyard
playing penitentiary hard
Face-scraping the concrete ...
Neanderthal knuckle features marred

Look at the smart treehouse girls
(with Zoology swing low ease thus far)
put the dumb cave-butt chimps
behind the Donkey Kong monkey bars

In the sea he hides lots of his waste
and some he landfills with much haste.
Nature's sick of his trash;
she prepares her backlash.
With big trouble soon he'll be faced.

In the air he dumps see-o-two gas 
and now it is coming to...Read More

Oh I howl!
Longing to be free…
But I remain, landlocked to a people
Growling and hissing you must face your responsibilities!

Indebted to a society into which my debts never seem to end.

After a long day from work

Sit still; block out all the noise

        Discard your troublesome woes

Careless Thoughts

Honest whispers, 
from somewhere unseen. 
Things we should not, 
dwell upon. 
Life's mistakes, 
“Do Overs”.

Punished in this world, 
saved in the next. 
God the only path, 
worth taking. 
The rest, 
the left behind…

Measured short by their own rulers....Read More

Sunflower Song
When clouds above dance to our song,
when stars are birthed from arbors strong,
we wish the days were extra long;
we sing our song, we sing our song.

Oh mother moon, smile down on us,
we raise voice in respectful trust,
to celebrate the twilight...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?

There's been a holocaust on the earth
The other one, against the environment
They can't stop...Read More

Rebecca and Isaac had twins
As different as different could be

A hunter was Esau, a man of the field
A scholar was Jacob, a dweller in tents

The same mother, the same father
the same education, the same home
Yet one stayed put, while the...Read More

A Feast for Mosquitoes

Picking peas in the garden,
My bare forearms a feast for mosquitoes.
With a dozen bites or more,
I think Mother Nature wrote the book
On the Art of War.
Each individual bite
Has its own level of pain.
And each individual bite

Tide out ...

Swells break far and creep slow,
sweeping tender 'cross washboard flats
where they used to dance -
where they lauded the ebullience of life
in purpose ... and pairs.

Beach ballerinas, flaunting perfect line ...
toothpick legs busy as Baryshnikov 'midst the billows,
leopard mantle...Read More

Winter tends the garden
  with leaf piles and broken branch
  nets of security and cover
  refuge for all the woodland creatures
as they slip in and out the windy cold.
