Premium Member The Lorax Sequel
I took the only seed of hope
for any future healthy Truffula Trees,
but reminded my clinically depressed acquaintance
we are all born co-redeemers,
not addictively incubating extractors.

Ours is not to commodify 
what we did not recreate
for its sufficient...

Premium Member One More Rosey Trip
I'm off on the beaten path
with Little Rosey in my grasp

There's palm fronds like a giant clock,
twenty hands instead of two
And there's the honeysuckle bush
that suddenly broke through
the gap in my neighbor's greenhouse

"Bonnie!" she insists
"Bonnie...

HERE ONCE STOOD OUR HOME
HERE. ONCE STOOD OUR HOME

I can't forget in a hurry,
Here once stood our ancestral home,
As was told my great- great- great- grand father
Who told my great-great-grand father,
Who told my great grand father and who

I Guess So
When we were young,
I held my long tongue
Foolishly sheepish 
Life is a sea full of fish

Good times spent with you mindlessly 
Boy, I don't feel guilty for being your minion of troublesome crime...spent so playfully...

Premium Member Survival Junkie
I guess you can say that I'm a wilderness survivor junkie,
which is surprising for many because surviving isn't easy.
Anyone who tells you that wilderness surviving is fun
isn't truly surviving. They are just simply camping,
but venturing...

Premium Member Recalled to LIFE
His heart ached as he looked at her
Her eyes had no sparkle
She walked ignorant of the fact
That her footsteps rocked his world
That she exuded sexuality
She walked unaware of the magnetism
Of her form
The sheer beauty of...

Unity of the people
Human beings we are
Each searching for are own happiness 
Fearing the possibility of living a life of misery
We are not born with hate, only the will to survive
Only the unloved hate
In this world we try...

The Mallards of Bedford Springs
The late night storm rushed into the valley,
Pouring down, 
Creating the sleepy ambiance only a mountains lull can provide.  
The crisp damp air crackles to life at lights first caste over the mountain,

Distress
I may not be
The highest mountain
The deepest ocean
The most desired emotion
Or the youthful fountain
But I expected more than this decree

I see you walk off from me
Ignore me completely
As soon as you no longer need me
As...

A workmate friend of my sister; Donella was her name,

She screamed  frantically, “My boy is in there!
Somebody, please!  Help Him!”  But nobody cared.

on her brother’s face the firelight gleamed.

Have You Met Your End
I'm scared...
I'm not prepared...
to meet my end...

With a face so warped, twisted and tangled.
A shock to the world of normality,
Infecting this land of endless humanity.

Premium Member Reforming Democratic Faith
Seems like advocates for cooperatively-invested dialogue
are concerned about indoor classroom experiences
that feel a lot more like debate
or merely academic,
detached,
cold analysis of win/lose evolutionary history,
in which might proves rightwing kleptocratic victories
while lefter democratic peace voices
fade into...

Twenty-Six
Twenty-six came fast... Possibilities
close in by the hundreds, as if they were marching
to the sound of a choke-hold.
Pressure's a good thing
when it has us make something
beautiful, or something hot.

invention, love, whatever...

9/11 Wasn't Heaven. Take it from one who was there.
Corpses, body parts, impaled bodies were most of what  I saw there.
