Flight Delays
Nothing's ever certain 
When relying on a flight.
You may confront delays for which
You're powerless to fight.

A little snow or fog or else
Mechanical concerns
Might get you where you're going late -
Departures or returns.

It's futile making solid plans -
They're bound to disappoint...Read More

Love can heal the wounds of a sharp knife
We embrace the silence ,welcome peace

I love to see a child’s faith and hear him as he prays;
It’s such a blessing to be still and hear all that he says.

With sadness and utter despair,
You really don’t want to be near them
For they make you miserable there.
They think there is no other person
As burdened so heavy as they,
And so when you see they are...Read More

Premium Member pain's crucifixion
and when ease of mind comes
without resurrection from the
soul's crucifixion of pain's
onward torment,
i seek only solitude for 
solitude itself...

desolation and isolation
have become my greatest
they reach heights for 
each other and in moments
of blazing obscurity, 
i rise like a phoenix

I Know Some Of Life's Sorrows, Fate Decrees Everlasting

I saw seven dying newborn white horses
I stumbled upon seventeen darken courses
I ran through twenty-seven ancient burnt temples
I found love may be hard, even when life is simple.

Premium Member The Dark
Beyond the distant saddened sight,
inside this lonely broken place,
I see the light that slowly fades,
the flame that burns like love's gaze
into this empty soundless space,
the void of mind and thought and name,
where all has gone and naught remains
as time dreams...Read More

Scents of Christmas

To smell the smell of pine 
Artificial, though it may be,
When all year long it is missed
Except in shaving crème.

When Daddy scraped some limbs
Fallen in a Christmas tree yard,
Enticing, inviting, how we want the scents
In the house on...Read More

Fight for Freedom-eleftheria

The Art of the Fugue

The art of what? Never heard one?
You will soon if you read on.
A fugue is a musical form,
in times past quite the norm,
more so in the time of Bach
who raised it to a mighty art.

To Would-be Public Speakers

For expert execution,
take lessons in elocution.
For better word resource,
consult Roget’s thesaurus.
To keep the audience from 
yawning or boredom,
an off-color joke may be best
to revive their waning interest.
Just be sure to be discreet,
or expect a speedy retreat.

Premium Member POWERFUL MAN

A man
may become powerful enough to
dominate other men
even become the master of his nation
and possibly
of many other nations
if he fails 
the master of himself to be
a miserable weak man, forever
would he remain!
