A dad
He cooks
He cleans
He buttons up his daughter's coat
He is one in a million
He shows his children
The right way of life
A dad is your mentor
He is your first love...Read More

Premium Member Celebration of Wind and Fire
Celebration of Wind and Fire 

Celebrate the unseen face of God’s eternal Spirit
 Embracing all before creating light;
Action word of the eternal dance
 Hovering over the chaotic genesis of creation;
Leading exiles out of exile through empty seas with fiery pillars

Me Myself and I
My self-awareness is clear.
Blunt. 
It's ugly and painful. To call it enlightening, is putting it lightly.
Honestly though, it's relieving, intriguing, and totally necessary. 
Character building, and damn near life-saving.
They say "seeing is believing"... But what about these feelings? 
The temporary,...Read More

A Selfless Love - A Tribute To My Dad
I was not ready to lose you.
But you were taken from me, anyway.

Suddenly.

On a sunny day that started so normally.
Without any sign of the emotional pain to come.

Abruptly.

Life’s like that, I guess.
It shouldn’t be that way.  It just is.

Unfair.

His favorite protégée
Mentors her day by day
You are his curious delight 
You're always affable
And so unflappable
Yes you're his favorite acolyte

Though your aura's sacred chic
Radiating cool mystique
Your life story does bespeak
Constant fight

His patronage for your art
Remains for you're his dear heart

Your waves have entered the shore
Lapping upon this sand
Smoothing our foot prints away
None shall see this walk we have taken

Disappearing from sight our old walk of life
Our shells buried deep, 
Wrapped together in seaweed 
huddled together not wanting to go

In my mother's shoes
As a baby I once played in my mother shoes
I walked in them with my little feet like a skier

I would trip in them and get a bruise
To nurse me, she was always near

Divine frenzy
Those who have the muse of madness in the soul,
passing through the doors of intuition very artful.
Where music and poetry play the touches of mad,
from the genius and sacrificing melancholy of insanity of load.
In the state of divine possession, the...Read More

They came toward me as a snotty group of two

My innards out of my chest before I arrived

But did not hear
Because their straight-lined angry mouths
