A plea of the unborn child to its mother.

I'll see you with my eager eyes,
Your soothing voice I'll...Read More

Running, jumping, and playing.

Yelling Loudly down the streets,
Not ready for school to start....Read More

Confessions of a crazy mixed-up elderly he-goat
What becomes of crazy mixed up kids fifty years on?
They become crazy mixed up elderly he-goats.
I am in part a Protestant,
In part I am a Jew,
But then I am a Catholic,
on off-days an atheist, too.
I’m something of a socialist
and pay...Read More

She survived the attack 
Of the turpentine man
When she was just a kid
He had her pinned 
To the ground
She ends up in shock
But it was a hoax
From a young adult
Trying to stop
After school fights
As a teen
She met and danced
With the...Read More

The man in my heart
I always wanted to fall in love, 
To make my heart suddenly beat faster, 
To connect the colors of life, 
With the melody of love sounding. 

He must be tall and patient, 
And with jokes quite on you, 
He is...Read More

About love
Misty distances beckon me again. 
They show me patterns of love, 
But my eyes don't hold anything, 
My thoughts are not in the clouds. 

I don't remember warm hands at all, 
That once warmed my shoulders. 
Sing cold, Blizzard, you're...Read More

Premium Member A Western Trail
He was eastern born in a small town.
And loved being out in the wild.
He fished, hunted, could track a deer down.
At the end of a good hunt, he just smiled.

But there was something not quite right.
A place inside he couldn't...Read More

Men bleed a river before they cry
A knife stab on a man
Hurts as much on a kid

He has to remain mum
A brave face to cede

A woman on his side, on the other a son
Two souls to shield, emotions never freed

He has strength to lift a tonne
And...Read More

The Rules 

They are changing, 
before our eyes. 
Well, not really for all. 
For some, they are brand new. 
For others, they are historic. 
Just the same,

is in "Plain Sight". 

You see her everywhere.

A child stood whimsically staring beyond my stately fence of
neighborly convictions, I stoically beckon my approval of his

I proffered a parents nightmare of wrapped gooey sweetness

Untroubled within a Bubble
Circular little eyelet, the end of a plastic stick,
Soapy membrane stretched across, not very thick,
Softly I blow, gradually inflating under pressure,
Out pops a universe, an instant piece of treasure.

One after the other, they levitate up and down,
Wind swirls slightly, like...Read More

Damn proud of myself, the kids' puzzle I bought once
