Boxes of Books
In the basement storage space
Where tenants get to stow
Those items they’ve collected,
Lots of things now have to go.

They’re cleaning up, so it was time
To sort through what we’d kept,
Deciding what to ditch or save
(Or what I could accept).

Show him who you are
You can't justify people's actions,
When they were intended to hurt,
It might make you at peace,
But you'll get treated like dirt,

You can't let the devil in,
If he'll give you a prize after,
It just isn't worth the pain,
It will end in disaster,

We...Read More

A smile needs no words
	It is sweeter than any compliment

A smile needs no sound
	It is louder than any extolment

A smile is irresistible
	It evokes curiousness

A smile in infectious
	It induces smiles on long faces

A smile can hide something
	It blossoms over what aches...Read More

How shall I begin,
we say we're not a couple,
but we had been living together 
since I don't know when.
Why I can tell you how the day will go 
by the way she breaks wind.
Now I'll say good morning, 
no matter...Read More

So many seek you by the light of the dawn only to lose you through the haze of dusk
You are mysterious at times a silent secret  in the navel of mans thoughts, a deviance

O beings of flesh and blood
O' beings of flesh and blood, 
Behold thy breaths! 
For I am sent to put an end
To your infinite cruelties and untamed lusts! 

What have you done to Earth! 
What have you done to hearts! 
You ruined the buds
You murdered...Read More

Premium Member -afflatus-
to lose a muse is none but sorrow,
no fuse can chase away the fear-
words shall appear and be near tomorrow

my inspiration is my revelation,
creativity with epiphanies of light-
found insight in a flight of meditation

divinity in security and laughter in purity,

Premium Member Sacred Discernment
Perhaps a way to turn
from failed
and often violent
retributive justice
to grab healthy hold
of restorative justice

Would ask,
What is this deep difference
between discerning judgment
and moralistic judgment?

To discern,
and not to condemn,
is mutually empowering
and not autonomously powering over another,
against all Others potentially suspicious,
falling short of...Read More

My Friend, A Father
Some people think
   and then they say,
I understand
   you feel this way.

When actually
   they have no clue,
What on earth
   life's like as you.

   the words, they bite,

I've just counted up to ten

The coffee in my cup is bitter, 
like the bad taste in my mouth. 
I have been up too long, 
to take back the night,
as the morning has come, 
and it is bright, 
beyond my dreams. 

I have searched...Read More

They called him 'Silent Cal'
  He didn't say very much at all
President about 100 years ago
  Seems like longer than that now, though

Premium Member Democracy On Fire
In "On Fire"
Naomi Klein reminds us
win/lose capitalism invites a collective action vacuum
and abhors restrictions on money-accumulating freedom,

But Earth,
a healthy global climate,
healthy ecosystems
invite regenerative win/win climax
of cooperatively nurturing health systems
and abhor inhumane definitions of "wealth"
as privately-held and autonomously sequestered currency
natural resources

Your Love's A Killer
Oh, child of mine where did you go
You seem so dark and cold
And I am still here all alone
No first born left to hold

The one that lifts you high
But killed your laughter stone cold...Read More

With any storm comes carnage, darkness and despair
Some of its imagined, but the rest of it’s right there.
As the fury ran its course, I’ve clung to what I know
It’s in these tests and trials where true colors often show

Once upon a time in Erin land,

I've never seen a Bumblebee 
Lose a fight with a Snapdragon

The mighty Bumblebee 
Opens wide the dragon's mighty jaws
And deftly crawls inside
To steal the coveted prize
And defeat the mighty dragon
(Of which there can be many!)
