My dear Siblings,

I voted for Hillary. 
I would have preferred Bernie, 
but she agreed to much of his platform-especially universal health care and education and seemed to be cognizant of environmental/climate change issues and bonus--she's...

During our time spent in old Blue
There was a pond up the road
That we liked to go to
Didn’t matter if it was hot or froze
When we were bored
Off to the pond we’d go
There were many...

Last Night with Gucci
Dark serene
Alone and together
My world in chaos
Vocational anxiety
Financial sobriety
Yet all matters not
As I look to my right
Gaze at my Gucci
Amazed by her will
Her zest for life
Amidst physical turmoil
A ruthless journey
Made tolerable and enjoyable
By quintessential Alpha...

I peer back thro' the mists of time and view a country lane,
That meanders thro' the woods and across the Hoosier plain.
I see a country lad in overalls and floppy hat of straw,
Ambling along barefoot,...

Do you hear the devil's laughter?
low within the marsh waters
rustling high the tree tops
Answer not with prayer
but within a smirk of doubt
Don't tilt the boat least you fall in
and a fat gator eats you alive...

My Own Private Canterbury
When we retired we were so inspired:
To live free and rest from our labors.
This mobile home park has lived up to the mark,
But oh, goodness gracious, the neighbors.

Premium Member I Wade Into The Prairie
I wade into my creek...
I wade into the Prairie
Crayfish scuttle about my feet
I can feel its slippery algaed rocks
slide perilously under my feet.

The sun is high
90 degrees, even in shade
in this stiffling July heat
Not a...

Premium Member A Summers' Day in Florida
The lake shimmers in the early breeze 
Dancing rivulets of light kissed by the rising sun,
Reflecting passing clouds hopscotching with such ease
It heralds a new day just now begun.

Observing its environs with majestic grace

The old pond
An old pond full of plops 
with jumping fish and Bobber drops
From my pole, As I cast a line
I sit to watch the clouds blow by
A snapping turtle rises up
His leathery head, like a log

White pebble
midnight pond
society ripples
from coo to caw
tsunami coming from the blaze
batons -n- blood
plastic shields
window shatter
church aflame
bricks and stones

as well as names..
God cursed
the shame of it all
riot horse clickity clackity
peace shackled
mankind sputters
in the middle...

Who could prepare for madness
As i embrace the moment it's like magic
Hocus-pocus the devil wants to snag me
In the traps he sets for the chosen imagine
An athlete in hell cant you see the flash man

Snapper Soup
Turtle soup to some is a sumptuous, sweet stew
Full of flavor, a favorite of families, not a few

Formed from the flesh of fresh turtle, so tasty
Hot… in high demand, a delightful delicacy

Made up of the...
