Cat Independence
Cats are amazing critters!
Of course, all cat lovers
are well aware of this;
so, it is not to you
whom I speak. But to
those less furry among-st
us—to those less inclined
to seek a warm lap and
shamelessly purr to the
heat and is to

Two Kings
Two Kings

I love to write about my King,
His name is dear to me.
He cleansed me of my many sins,
And set my spirit free.

I used to serve another king,
Of dark and fearful mien,
But since I met the King of Kings,
I'll not...Read More

Fortune Cast
Writing my own ticket…
a coupon from the past

The numbers all decoded,
my gate approaching fast

Walking down the gangway,
my seat by fortune cast

The pilot sitting next to me
—the flight plan mine at last

It blows across the land, whistling along thy stand.
The wind travels across every mend, seeking out every bend.
It has a mind of its own, thus is where this is shown.

Stepping Stones

Invest one’s words whilst
Disengaging spent brain mode;
Discover Haiku. 

Walk midst new flora,
Engaging sensory brain;
Discover freedom.

Test out thoughts anew,
Embracing strange views unleashed;
Discover mercy.

Follow trekking stones,
Entranced with fierce, sleeping giants;
Discover courage.

Look askance at
Passing points of brutal pain;
Discover heartbeats.

Feel pure cashmere shawl

I Am That I Am…Without End…

Listen, my heart is a soul drum
Beating the spiritual rhythms 
Of the sojourning struggle of life—
Pumping pulsating blood inking
The notes of our story—flowing 
From the past to the present—banked
In the here and now—waiting to cascade

Your freedom of choice, to rejoice.
Come here, my dear, and have no fear.
You got in gear, with no veneer, 
I'm drawn to your magnetic voice.
It's clear, you're music in my ear.

My best intentions are noble,
inclined t'wards the climate I find.

Pardon mine allegiance to infidelity
Unfaithful marital transgressions
self admitted indictment,
crime and punishment,

entailing no mister re: demeanors,

no unwanted child left behind),
nonetheless one unforgettable
indelible, execrable, and abominable
professedly owned his
civil warring battle of life

transgressions undeservedly heaped

I Hate Lying
I Hate Lying

I hate lying;
it’s a weakness.
It shows a truth;
that others rule me.

If I have to lie;
it’s to avoid pain,
discomfort, and shame.
To make you feel good.

Slaves lie to the boss;
to save their lifeline.
But, to hell with him,
and his profit.

Cognizant of humanity’s befallen verdict
Deliberately transgressing sovereign laws
Affirming carnal nature flaws…
Yet You, God Almighty, quickened my soul along divine edict.

Midst condemnation terrifying my heart
Frightened to face death’s agonizing seizure
With horrifying sting of grave-pressure… 
Still, You offered me redemption-grace, never will...Read More

free at last
time weightless
a dream come true
miles from the city
its drama left behind
precious vacation now unfolding
crisp spry air
of cottage country
a secluded bubble
in communion with nature
feels surreal
such existential bliss
pure proximity to the divine

Our inhabited space bound by bars we drink in.

win/lose capitalism invites a collective action vacuum
and abhors restrictions on money-accumulating freedom,

But Earth,
a healthy global climate,
healthy ecosystems

of cooperatively nurturing health systems
and abhor inhumane definitions of "wealth"
as privately-held and autonomously sequestered currency
