Premium Member Goodby, My Best Friend
It was during the Korean War
Mother came and said
Avoiding my gaze
We don’t have enough rice left
Even for people

Even for people?
Meaning?
Not for my best friend?

That night I couldn’t sleep
With all kinds of thought
Knowing what Mother meant

Next day, old man came
With wrinkles...Read More

My Sleeping Garden

Winter is saying its last goodby to my lonely garden
as nature turns the page to another chapter as
it has done though-out the ages. 

The earth now free from the grip of Old Man Winter,
I welcome the songs of arriving birds....Read More

I love taking photographs of flowers,
on a summer day with long hot hours;
now, that sweet, sweet heat is fading away,
and the days are full of falling showers.

Like flowers-   to summer I am clinging,
and on long walks a picnic...Read More

Premium Member Waves
I drift off in memory
To Carmel-by-the-Sea
We drove up to Monterey
Where you gave your heart to me

Then walked out into the ocean
Caught up in the salty breeze
As we loved each other
I felt the waves wash over me

Every reason I should stay
But...Read More

10:43:26 AM 
And ten weeks later 
You'd be gone
But your socks 
Are still here
You looked so bad when you left
Barefoot without a care,

The blanket you wore 
You had sworn you'd tear
Before you'd leave again
All tattered and alone
Without a thought for...Read More

I would buy back; the freedom, Identity, cultures, artifacts, and land of my people!

Summer
Such summer days as these are merry bright,
and altogether they portend good times.
Sol shortens nights, again extends the light,
the time is right for jesters bold and mimes.
Relax and take your ease at distant stays,
enjoy pursuits that make for sweet release.

Premium Member goodby Betty,don't remember me
My hands spade the shovel - spay the rooted grave.
Earth is impassive.  Why won’t life relent?
The silver blades south for the black plastic bag
swallowed by west winds, wrapped in a blanket
that is olive green.  Under the sun’s harrowing...Read More

Premium Member The Last Ride
Our horses are running, to save our lives.
Distance traveled to far to decribe.
Our horses quick hooves trample the grass.
We can not slow, horses hearts must surpass.
Faster we go with our eyes firmly fixed.
Changing terrain, fences made from sticks.

Brothers in arms,...Read More

Goodby Dear Friend
Today I lost a friend of mine.
Her life was long and sweet.

She never said that she was sick ;

she'd be so very doggone mad,

she'd never speak to...Read More
