Premium Member HOW COME I WONDER

The sun awakes each early morn
Bright sky glows its colors adorn
Nothing but jeans tattered and torn
Miracle of life a child born
	How come I wonder

Fly in formation at high noon
Birds band together sing a tune
Scent of lilac come early June
Summer breezes...Read More

last goodbye

We sit silently in the crematorium

You are in a box, a large spray of white lilies placed on top

I hold my breath for to say goodbye is too much

How will I cope with such a loss?

Premium Member BREATHLESS - - - once again
tryptophan fills my veins,
lost in lingering lullabies-

i sort out what used to be mine
he was enchanting with evocative eyes,
feverish in tantalizing touches;
a fraction of forgiveness without
atonement made me weak-
and i am left


i am placid and quiescent,
frenzied and unrestrained-

Singing birds emerging.
Pretty flowers are blooming.
Rabbits are hopping.
In spring things start living.
Nests of eggs are cracking.
Gardens are now growing.

Premium Member If There Was No Poetry
No more poetry,
say it's not so.
How do I live not writing any more, 
no more words and stories to express.
No more rhymes,
to pass my time.
How about acrostic,
running down the side.
Free verse loved by all,
it is now all gone.

Premium Member I Marched On
Crushed by WII
Brutal arms of Japan
Father in prison
Brother in heaven
But I marched on

Crushed by Korean War
Brutal arms of North
Goodbye, Father
See you in heaven
But I marched on

Crushed by hunger
Refugee in an island
Fish swam all around
No net to catch 
But I marched...Read More

The rising spirit
First steps on crisp new snow,
Flakes dancing with sparkle and glow,
Vibrations rising from the toes,
Through the body to the soul.
Snow clad trees, strength they lend,
To the weight as they bend,
Creating tunnels, spectacular view,
Over untreaded paths, guiding you.
To the perfect place,in...Read More

You,my dad, and me
You, my Dad, And Me**

A cute little girl, who still loves the colour pink.

Swings and roundabouts, running from one to the other,
Cheeks all a flush
Holding on tight, the hands of...Read More

From a Trailer Park in Keokuk
she came from the town of keokuk
  for what she did, she charged a buck 
    or sometimes two;
everyone said she was an evil gal,
but she changed my luck,
  that evil gal from keokuk!

Closing doors
In denial is a serious sickness
Watching every move I make
Simply because a word has been uttered to me
A minute time passed
With the hope that nothing has changed
How delusional of me
To have believed in an unknown situation
To have been sacred
Simply because...Read More

I'm a Sky Blue Without You
Some say I'm a daydreamer
Someday, I will get better; whatever weather...
Someday, I will be...with you forever
Some say never, but never say never

I've been drifting like a feather in the sky these days
I've been wandering in many ways…
I sway today, today

Stay firm in the Promise

Let not the church, nor the people, 
Let not the songs, nor the steeple. 
Cause my firm faith or love to flee, 
For my spirit remains in thee.

Or listen to the birds...Read More

Gretel and Hansel were given

Since they did not lie

Premium Member no, i just couldn't - - - say goodbye
aimlessly afloat on maple leaves
caught in the sky, 
the abstract fear of heights began
telling time a lie-
the grains of sand caught in glass
began to melt,
my right hand fought hard to grasp
what your heart felt

The country, people, and the village,
All equal, as if, for the first time, 
All of that gave a fresher image,
Nay, 'tis but a relative vantage.
Save fresh road, to its left bears a sign.
