I live to remember

My mind a thick fog, a thick fog so deep, 
it threatens to submerge my thoughts. 
I know not why, or how, or even who,
for the fog makes me it's puppet. 
It stutters and now I. 
It forgets and so...Read More

Premium Member He Expected the Worst in Everyone
He had a perpetual angry sneer
A lip that curled and an attitude that said
Back off

Expressed dissatisfaction with you 
before you reached his eye level
you could feel his disgust

He expected the worst in everyone
Substandard treatment, racism, sexism,
and all the other isms

He...Read More

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.

Row Houses
Newfoundlanders can row, you should see some of'em go,

But I don't like this mess, all this Race foolishness,
I'd never seen so much goings on.

You sit as always-earphones in and eyes glued to a screen,

Shadow Lights

Have you ever noticed? 
When you sit your hands upon the keys. 
If you close your eyes, 
just right...
not too tight, no peeking, but still
they move all on their own. 
They hear things we have yet to listen too....Read More

In her car, the woman in deeepest melancholy sat.
Rain falling, tears falling, splat!

She thought of those many days before.
With many a handsome suitor at her door.

She closed her eyes and she warmly remembered!
Teaching bubbling children in those autumn-hued Septembers.

Premium Member Something Borrowed
My grandmother often advised
"no need to borrow trouble."

My grandmother-in-law warned
"you don't need to look for trouble
because it will find you,"
which seems a better fit
with my own experience
with actively soliciting trouble,

Disempowering investments
purchased at lowest ego-cost
for discounted risky value,
or borrowed,

The 42 Inch Hallway

We’re stepping along the musty hallway now.
I am taking us on a fast-moving memory ride;
A mind-bending groovy slide to 1965,
When Dylan music was seeping loudly like a germ,
Down the green-carpeted hallway of my youth, from
Within the record-filled...Read More
