A hug in the wind--- nothing is absurd

I can't sleep at night
In my arms you're being held tight
And it is ever so, ever so right

Oh, thinking about you girl
Be there in my world
I can't open my eyes 
Showing you there after two tears left cry

And girl old...Read More

The lost gentleman
The gentleman strode confidently along the strand 
‘his silver topped cane was gripped tightly in hand 

‘the storm which had raged with that purple strange light ‘had pushed him forward in -time to this very night.

Premium Member Another Day Without You
Another day without you.
Another day to be alive.
Within sorrow's empty heart.
How do I survive.

Loneliness surrounds me.
My other half is gone.
Half of this whole is missing.
from this souls loving song.

No notes I sing this morning.
To greet this new day.
No smiles I...Read More

Premium Member Weeks in the House Have Changed Me
That evil thing has changed my soul,
I close myself in the house alone.
No longer do I talk – not even on the phone.
I am fed my head turned away.

Groceries are shoved through a tiny space,
Missing many I’ve learned to make...Read More

The 815 AM Fast
The people crowded on the platform
Standing in wait for the 8.15 A.M. Fast
Are not the anxious one, bored they maybe.
Till two decades ago
I was a part of that crowd for many years,
The train never failed us.
I have come to recollect...Read More

The Poems I Wish to Write About You
These thoughts in my heart are plenty
unlike those words that run on empty-
the poems I could only wish to scribble
that often merge into a puzzle,
stashed among unread books for days,
lackluster hours they solely embrace

A sprig of chrysanthemums seeking attention
from my...Read More

Premium Member A Light at the End of the Tunnel
"What a fine day for a picnic," my friends all said,
In the dog days of summer, with the hot sun overhead.

And would return refreshed and happier, we had...Read More

It stood in the village showing power

Everything has a soul
Maybe the wind blows to search for lost clouds
Maybe the stars shine to hunt for the sun
Maybe we laugh to gasp in some air
To let our soul dance blissful and bare

Maybe the waves come looking for lost fish
Maybe smoke rises...Read More

Mad Mad World
Missing the days
When I was the craziest person I knew 
This mad world 
Has incredibly gotten madder
Radios TVs blaring panic
Humanity gobbling it up like candy
Social distancing 
Because society hadn't already 
Become distant enough 
Do you know your neighbor's name

She is alone
Hoping to be loved
By a man

The one who loves her
For all she is
Good, bad and ugly

Wounded in battle scars 
Across her fragile heart
Her mind traumatized 

Builds her highest defense
With hidden traps
Not get into her again

Prosecuting trespassers 
With sharp...Read More

A save place from the sun’s harsh rays,
A hide-out for the monsters we...Read More

This Fragile Life - Tribute to Bob
Fragile Life

Tonight I learned,
quite by accident
that my dear friend
lays dying of the virus.

I called him this weekend,
in all this craziness
to check on it a gut hunch
his phone just went to message.

He gasped his greeting,
what would take normally a minute...Read More

The House Our Fathers Built, The Woman and Her Almost Husband
The heirloom, Neo-classical, Palladian, almost as old as light, was mine from conception, so, when the latchkeys were placed over Simian crease, 
I put my ears to the hardwood floor, listening for the cacophony of feet. 
Sometimes when God's voice...Read More

the scent of wood and dust in the air
cobwebs in corners and crooks
sun flooding in through windows
his scarred and scored wooden work table

Missing Pair
Been one 
For a long time
Never have one

Grown up
Secretly needs one
Not just having it
Opportunity to cherish it
Something special

Despite ignoring it
Bury it deep inside my chest
It gets louder and louder

Every lovebirds come by
I can only dream
Smiling to myself
Imagining that for me
