The small church sanctuary was empty. 
Well, not really, that is never exactly true. 
There are always angels, 
playing in the rafters, 
tiptoeing across the piano keys, 
or chasing each other, 
back and forth among the flowers.

Sometimes they go...Read More

A Glass of Wine

In a box, 
a cake is hidden. 
I opened it slowly, 
and looked inside. 
All I found…
was a bag, 
and dust. 

Add this, mix that, 
be hopeful and hurry. 
The mistake, 
was in the flurry. 

Whipped topping,

When the wind blows, 
down from the great north, 
it brings a mighty frost. 
Do not be afraid. 
Just because something, 
makes you tremble, 
does not give it the right…
to win. 

Stand tall, all who guard the...Read More

Things have not gone, 
the way that you believe they should. 
I have not said a thing. 
Things are not what they need to be,

I will stand beside you forever.

The Winter Hours

Cold is not my friend. 
It loves me, 
but it is not…
a mutual affair. 
Slowly, artfully, cruelly, 
my joints begin to freeze up. 
They ache in the morning. 
They are soar in the afternoon. 
They are painful later...Read More

Melted snow forms a swamp in the yard
Pours down the sidewalks, into the street gutters
Children in slick yellow rain coats are jumping in puddles
Delighted that they can play outside again

We are two weeks past the ides of March.
Hopeful gardeners are...Read More

Not made of candy, but real wood. 
It belonged to my father’s father,

No, they were all good man. 
all equally healthy and mostly happy.

Far above skies,
Destined never to plummet,
Leaving earth's ties,
You've reached your summit.

As surely as I see you there,
You kept alive the flame;
Now in its sudden glare-
The whole world knows your name.

Sitting happy and proud,
In your beautiful clothes,
You wave to the crowd;

You can still see where the rain had fall
The stain must have been there for many years
And every time it reappears 
Sending chills into my ears
It embraces an interesting story

Premium Member A Christmas Pageant Past
It wasn't a memory as such but a story, 
Recounted time and again by parents loving and proud.
Young men are too occupied chasing visions and fleeing demons 
To remember.
Middle age concerns lean towards practicality, keeping or escaping it.
If there was...Read More

Another Christmas Day will soon be here again,
It used to be my favorite time of year.
Now it's not as much fun 
Celebrating for one,
When the one I'd like to share it with's not here.

At the store, 
there was a sea of people. 
Not one or two or a thousand, 
drops from heaven, 
that never stopped
On a parched land
of holiday cheer.

Christmas lists,

Softly my love, 
I watch every flake,
come slowly from no where, 
outside my vision, 
beyond the window boundaries,
magical…even whimsical…
the white soft “above”,

soon a giant blanket of pure…beauty.

Dear Santa,

How you doing,
hope this message finds you well
I know it’s almost Christmas
and you’re busier than hell

Except for just a couple things
and maybe something twice

She’s taken to folding paper 
As a hobby 
It’s what makes her happy now ,  I think (?)

Spends hours 
Making sheet after sheet
Into this ‘n’ that 
Different shapes 
Things that sometimes move
Things that prove
