Premium Member They Blamed it on Her
The bowl of fruit left on the table
to wither and rot by those unable.
Those whose minds are shattered by death,
whose minds are weakened and bereft.
There cliché exhibit they concede,
tells of their leal for their dead lief.

When Uranus in the natal chart
Conjuncts the Ascendant,
The personality will be
Extremely independent.

Then imagine Uranus opposite the Moon,
Sure sign of separation -
Won't be the domestic type,
If that's the indication!...Read More

Forever Embrace Love
Grumbling constantly to others;
Mumbling about various articles.
Fumbling in a dark labyrinth—
Stumbling over the obstacles.

Whether Life throws us a curveball,
Together we will forge ahead. 
Never dwell on our differences—
Forever embrace love instead.

Rapidez
Rapidez

Sempre,
na vida ou nos negócios
vá rápido o suficiente para chegar lá, 
mas lento o suficiente para ver o caminho.

O sucesso
não é sobre chegar rápido
é sobre conhecer o caminho
e nunca deixar ninguém para traz....Read More

Missouri
The fleeting dawn has translucent crystal light
that shimmers and wrinkles my furrowed slack skin. 
Then a temperate touch, my terrors ignite
as beneath my waves, dark currents surge within;
since time began, I have carried human kind;
but still I yearn to swallow...Read More

With pegs and pins in a bucket that’s full, 
She hangs her music to dry,
Where it hums a tune majestically soft, 
And it hums it up to the sky,

And the Lento and Largo sways in the breeze, 
The Staccato hangs...Read More

Guerreiros Poderosos
Guerreiros Poderosos

Os dois guerreiros mais poderosos são:
a paciência e o tempo.

O guerreiro Paciência é ativo
nunca passivo.
paciência é o guerreiro que espera
e continua a fazer sempre mais
quando tudo pode ser difícil e lento.

O Tempo é o guerreiro
que espera
o instante
eterno
na eternidade que
existe.

Depression
Depression is my only song

Nonaggression where it may belong
Suppression of feelings of self worth

Days I have spent locked in my mind
Ways to escape these feelings I do not crave
Praise my ways to have my shadows defined
Raise me...Read More

Her dress as white as snow

Tomorrow never came
Tomorrow we agreed—at our special place
Where we always had—our special dates.
The blooming park with spring in swing
Bring out the larks—making them sing.

On a wrought iron bench—waiting,
Fumbling a box that held a bond.
How to ask—will you respond?
I kept calm waiting by...Read More

Lord, when I worry about the bills,

Angry eyes
Unclosed eyes spew anger stern
Unstoked smokeless fire of the wild
Unclasped lost togetherness burns
Uncleaned ashes cover soiled mind.

Fiery disdain the bloody eyes spray
Scary voice threatens harsh to hurt
Flowery attachments wilt in disarray
Wary heart sinks and splits apart.

When your heart breaks
Your heart when it breaks
Yonder clouds enter the eyes
Under test the trust wrecks
Flower called love soon dies.

Near melts in distant crowd
Answer your question seeks
Unclear mind dons a shroud.

Your heart when it breaks
Rear time decays in wasteland

THE ROSE
The tiny fresh bud in my garden,
Slowly bloomed into a bright rose,
Spreading exquisite fragrance all around,
That’s what it decided and chose.

Innocence lies in the way it smiles,

Requerimiento
(The Spanish conquerors of the
Americas read out their legal
document, the "Requerimiento",
to the Indians.  Failure to comply
meant the Spanish were free to
do what they wanted.)

found themselves a radical ruse.

The Binding
Abraham wrapped his robe about him,
Laced his sandals upon his feet,
Took his staff in his hand,
And started off down the path
To the place of which God had told him.

A young man rises early one cool morning
Washes himself and says the...Read More
