Cherry Blossoms
Pink and white, floating in the Son’s light
The breeze makes them whisper to my delight
A carnival of blooms to announce spring’s might
In renewing all things; Nature’s way of life

My internal experience of depression
today shames
external ecology of elation,
all I might know as warm extended family
of profoundly peaceful impressions
still bare surviving
at end of this slow-fading thread.

Whether the Good Lord or Charles Darwin gave Adam his fruit

Regardless of ideology versus faith rules our common pursuit

We need to accept that life is dangerous and fraught with peril

Don’t jump the gun before facing the reaper or his rifle...Read More

I grew up a child of the ’60’s
together my life and the hippie movement dawned…
now when I look back at that time I wonder…where have all the hippies gone?

Those long haired tie-dyed idealists who walked around with our feet bare

Amidst reality’s kaleidoscopic might
My vision needs faith light
For color virtues-right
Admitting blurry sight…
To enjoy special child’s delight
Soaring with him in blissfulness-height.

Does it mean we are friends if I mirror your thoughts,
That we like the same jokes or our politics sing
A conventional melody?

Does the ground shake (we stand on) when boundaries slip,
When emotional dams burst, magnetic fields flip
As convection cells drift...Read More

Things You hear In The Night
Run friends as fast as you can
From this dreadful land
Be wary of a terrible sight
Of things that go "Blasty Blang Beedle Bum  Bang" in the night!

Nery a more terrible sound
That can be heard for miles around
A sound that doesn't...Read More

I Loved You

I surrender
I surrender,
I have fought the good fight,
I have outlasted most,
In the fight that is seemingly lost.

I will leave the battlefield.
To spend more time with my grandson.
So one day in the future he might be the one,
To stop the slide into...Read More

Dreamer weaves 
her golden words
like breath brought
her into a new world
each chord held 
she remembers holding 
the constellation
Virgo in her arms 
in time small windows
open midnight blue
glistening jade
they reign over her
a Lion whispering 
the oddest nursery rhymes, 
lullabies she's remembering

My soul is embraced

My soul in the darkness it did abide,
The essence of my life slipping between this life and the next.

On the fringe of suicide and contemplating death.

I see a small light in the darkest time.
I reached out for help and my...Read More

Opining On Sacraments Of Self-Ordained Loathsome Sacredotalists

When the rascal dons his garments of meerschaum shade
with loud mendacious voice he covers his mugwump cries
Waving a banner of loquacity, expostulations are made,
and he assumes a 'Forma Pauperis,' as greed's vault denies.

Lone Bird
A bird soared
In the blue sky
and flapping gently his wings
flew away farther and farther
at last not seen.

Such a sight long not seen
as environment deteriorated .

Where he  flew !

He might had flown
over the mountain
valley and rivers
I had not visited.

Noob goes for a walk in a straight line
The distance from point A to B is easy
But going only half way as required 
Going half the distance all the time
Is not so simple as Noob might think

Another day dies as I sit in a fallow field and watch 
my dream sprouting among the wild  green weeds.
The  silence  of the valley is soon broken as evening
approaches and  birds  take their last flight.

The stag was astounded by fox’s nerve.
Not realizing this was no ordinary fox.
You are going to the city? Why? Stag asked.
To peer in and peer out, to unify my flocks.

This is when Stag realized why fox was called Cosmos.

Fully unexseptional loving the wrong people
Her preparations to be his

each morning started from

she commanded his attention
and demanded his loyality
while she sought favor from

Saving her need for others
While she gathered gossip

Etymologists hate poetry -
I have that on the best authority -
Of course the bloody rhyme's not perfect!

Were not supporters of our noble art,
They had us beaten from the...Read More
