HARDER
It's hard to stop,
Knowing that you are wrong,
Knowing the mistakes you've done,
Knowing you're an endless series of bad.

It's hard to keep,
What you never got to hold,
What was long lost and gone,
And never made you feel any good.

It's hard to stay...Read More

THE OLDER VIEW FROM HERE
gentle wind comforting me
total vibe filled with glee
the scent of Christmas in the air
imagining a space with you standing there
inspiration growing in remembrance of you 
the effervescence of your iridescence shines through and through
i can still smell the spicy scent...Read More

I need to know that my life matters.
That I am someone,though I stand alone.
My heart may be in tatters,
But it is the only one that I own.

Feeling at times, less than zero.
Knowing that it was the intent.
I had hoped there...Read More

Sentinel's Watch
He wouldn’t give me the time of day
if his watch was on fire –
the one I’d started running for.

I’d go seriatim on the trail
while speculating about
traversing more
uneven terrain still
just to catch a glimpse of him.

Anyway…

Once I settled
into a pace he...Read More

Circle Of Life
Life's a journey with lots of twists and turn,
leading the way through hitches,
making my soul burn,
Strong men show no fear nor pain,
while traveling the path so narrow,
But their truth is hidden beneath the smile,
That covers the feelings of sorrow,
Though you...Read More

In the absence of complication,
intricacies of wayward living,
matters emphatically mitigated,
compelling conclusions, well-received,
extenuating circumstance accomplishes,
impressive consequences, be enduring,
proffers a conciliatory concession, 
for toward said conclusion, we pray that all our
trials and tribulations become distant memories.

Mami Owon
It is so true that good mothers are rare.
In the furious face of hunger,
And in the ferocious jaws of sickness
You have always been near.

Mami Owon,
This verse could have been a salutation,
Expressing my love for you,
Or to seek help from you,
But...Read More

Judging Others…
whimsical law?

It is a kangaroo court, 
and the clowns have just arrived. 
Dressed in suits and ties, 
eating pies.

They think they know best, 
they have been put to the test. 
Liars on fire…
every “one”.

Taking care of a tiger,

Winding
To dare to cross a cross
  Moving on along a brothers way
Bypass all signs from gravity
  A winding path defies, all looking for it

Haptic visions here to stay
  Phantom waxing fast decipher
More permanent each passing day

What is expected
from perfection?
Do your best,
and none can find fault. 
The level of your challenge, 
needs to be higher,
than your attainable goal. 

Help others rise with you, 
and the water boils hot. 
The steam brings newness…
washed clean, 
what was once

Stalled Beginning…Beautiful Ending

                I
Like a stalled car
with engine running,

I sat there waiting
to go somewhere.

A tingling bumped
my consciousness;
I became aware
my blank foot-brake
was resting
on my mind’s pad.

Premium Member Sapphire skies in sanguine eyes
In the absence of complication,
Trials and tribulations become distant memories.
Above sapphire skies delight sanguine eyes -
Inspiring forthcoming musings of the mind.

Hope of a brand-new day conquers
Disillusionments of the past
Hosting exuberance on resplendent arc,

Condemning the nights of angst
In triumphant adjudication

Environmentally, the world
is fast approaching crisis point:
global warming has meant major
alterations at the Poles,
where the icecaps are melting fast.
In hot regions, such as my own,
there are places crippled by drought.
Australia's fire season
began early this year,
so that many houses are lost,

Somewhere Between
To see me is to look
through storm clouds
To view what I have hidden
in the depths of my gaze.

To hear me is to listen
only to the half breaths
And recognize the difference
between solace and anxiety.

To judge me is to walk
barefoot along broken...Read More

Your Son Will Be Your Downfall
I respected the man that you once were. 
Professional and kind.

With your business driven mind.

And for a time, things went well.
But the day you forced him into...Read More

Now, you’re too far gone.
It’s no use pretending what you’ve done.
I too now, am too far gone.

It is such a long way down, far for all to fall.

Moving on
She told me she still loves me 
I can't say the same
I wanted to 
But didn't
Pride is to blame
Love can be tricky
Hard to forget
Just like  betrayal
Hurt
Or regret
My mind it still wonders
About things that could have been
Now it's at peace...Read More
