The Final Poem
I’ve dreamed of you so much,
I’ve walked so much, talked so much,
Loved your shadow so much,
That I have nothing left of you.
All I can do is be a shadow among the shadows,
To be one hundred times more shadow than a...Read More

Premium Member Being Aware of Impossible Things

(a prose-poem)

He was very young, he knew that he relied on others to think, 
live and survive, although survival was an unknown planet in an 
as yet, unread comic book.

He spent much of his time in that garden.
There were people...Read More

"In my battered whelms;
Those profiles which I never win;
My healing has just begun,

they begin...

The winter storms;
often remind me of my birth
my birth when I was born

in the cold months of January...

there was I buried out of my mother's womb;

Premium Member If You Don't Want Your Money
Very rarely will you ever see,
anyone who hates money more than yours truly.
"Well, If you don't want your money,"
they say to me constantly,
"you can always give it to me."
They don't even hear themselves sadly,
not realizing that money, are the chains...Read More

Just Passing Through
Bang! Bang! Bang!

Shattering windows and, smashing glasses 
Sending people pouring out in the street
Gun shots penetrating the clouds 
With a message that is very loud

People are running and screaming around

Today is a yellow day
everything is so blaze’
I’m sure to have my way
If I don’t have much to say.

We snip, we snarl then
it’s makeup time.
The next few moments 
are so sublime.

The trees fly by stately
in their own way.

Premium Member our dalliance has ended
i shall never be able to forget our affection

‘neath the autumn moon i still etch your silhouette

sincerity arrived and remorse soon followed,
for i needed compassion, someone...Read More

Change is hard for everyone,
But attitude helps you overcome 

The hesitation to try something new,
Because of a positive  “can do”

Erases the doubt,
And gives you clout

To accept a new challenge,
Perhaps learn a new talent

Or change with the times,
Leaving the past...Read More

Who the R evolution

As from the plaintiffs
their voices rise
come speak with us
come converse
with words of love

Here we raise no battle cry
no hymn or anthem
but with gentle heart
and loving mind
raise this protest

Too long we cling
with this skin of nostalgia
those so called better times
and in...Read More

Walking Through Life
So often we are just walking through the motions,
Like our daily grind without emotion

Or thought actually,
What a pity

You should start a day with good intent,
To be aware and cognizant 

Of the beauty of life, so be it a struggle,
To prove...Read More

Premium Member Free Verse On Love
You have loved me, always,
as you did throughout our spring-
so lush and green-
when nothing was too hard for us
to keep our love
alive and new.

All through the summer of our life,
as children blessed
our married years,
and tending to them became first-
you did...Read More

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.

speaks of blaming left-hemisphere dominant GodVoices:

but by...Read More

Premium Member Better not
Mirror mirror on the wall,
better never fall at all,
As long as you hang in there,
People will stop and stare,
To see their faces to hearts desire!
But if you break to many tiny sizes,
People will fear your prickly pieces,

A War of Words
a trijan refrain

Immortals fighting in a war
spar to find the liars.
Though it generates some rapport,
toleration backfires.
Immortals lose in false debate.
Speak up, strive to keep the facts straight,
       immortals, fight!

I’ve never felt this way before.
The joy comes from the depths of my soul.
I don’t know how to explain this feeling.
It’s a feeling that is beyond words of description.

It’s almost like I’ve...Read More

I grew up a child of the ’60’s

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

When emotional dams burst, magnetic fields flip
As convection cells drift...Read More

Abused and vaporized

The two village clocks
Point their hands at me
While I spiral down an empty well

Nauseous and waiting to burst 
I point my eyes upwards 
Into the blackness

Where is that candle 
That flashlight 
That hint of bright
Everyone talks about
