MY SPACE
Surrounding me with endless love
Beauteous buds ! Roses are red
A remarkable aura - brilliant
The inner self - me - radiant
Self love, self respect, self pride
And my self esteem - well bred
I also quote - "How do I love thee?

My Future Fate
I keep on observing couples pass me by oh so merrily,
Getting me all perked up, but at the same time, a bit of jealousy
I am deserving of no one and I know you'd disagree
Getting me slightly upset because I can't...Read More

Before The Silence
Terminal poetry…
death by the word

Selling a heartbeat
for every breath

Giving up life
for each new phrase

Buried
—inside what’s heard

Are Poets Truly Born To Be Cannon Fodder

Heart struck, blood-let by black arrows thus shot
within soul- can not poetry reward,
those that ink giving freely all they got
playing face up, each and every card?

Does this darkened...Read More

Solar Eclipse 2003

Two elderly ladies anxiously looked up at the night sky, 
their faces lit by the excitement of an eclipse. 

Half the moon was about to be eaten by darkness. 
The first cold night gave substance to our breaths.

Why were their...Read More

A Poem For My Ministry Site Visitors 

A Small Oblation

I do not minister for money,
But somehow it seems kind of funny,
That those who let me build this site,
Somehow feel that it's alright,

For me to pay a monthly fee,
To offer all...Read More

Premium Member Good Bad Special

A hungry beggar
or low bootlegger
a good soul senses their pain
gladly giving change
thanks and coins exchange
strangers never meet again.

Homeless foul the street
someone ought to tweet
bad souls see lazy losers 
sidewalk filthy freaks
without baths for weeks
street drunks and drug abusers.

So much damage...Read More

Premium Member Quiet Charity
What good charities lie in men unsung
Who fortune smiled on loud and long?


Quiet do some share their wealth ‘til done
To help the poorest of us get along.


Wish I as they were, as they humbly are
Quiet charity lessons unselfish given.


As kindness...Read More

I love to keep a low profile
And avoid the limelight
Flamboyance is not my style
I’m fiercely loyal, fair and giving
Looking for ways to please loved ones
By subtle random acts of kindness

I wish I could grace the whole world
With joyful melodious entertainment

Racoons, Racoons, bouncing everywhere!
Ceiling to floor and door to door.
Down the rain pipe, then back up.
Scuttering around seeking food
	and a comfortable place to sleep.

When night creeps up my sliding door
with lights out for the night,
I can trust in their pitter-pat
