Edge To Extinction
When gallons of water fall from the faucet,
my mother reminds me to turn off the faucet when not in use.

But as I count the last few drops falling down towards the drain,
I think about the animal that ate endangered,
and getting...Read More

Outdoor Wonders
Nature makes me blossom,
from the flower that blooms in my backyard,
to the tall trees that shimmer with green.

When I was five I remember exploring the outdoors, 
taking my red sketchbook everywhere.
Lines flying through the page,
as I try to resemble the...Read More

Farewell Fifth Grade
We leave the fifth grade reunion, go to another school
to a place that's much calmer

No more tag or hide and seek or 
gathering in a circle to play Duck Duck Goose.

No more random stories,
from rolling the story cubes.

No more hanging...Read More

The first time of prayer
The time to realize that life is patience
Prayer makes life beautiful and Divine
As I finish my prayer,I think about rhymes
A plate of delights makes me mine
The house is a mess
The clocks chime
I remember lost times

I ponder about the life of a tree as I sit across from it 
watching ripples disturb its mirrored image
that lays gentle on the surface of a pond

The Harbour
regret holds me hostage and the ‘almost’ captivates me. 
i lose myself in a world of ‘what if’ 
and drown myself in a harbour of sadness; 
the only happiness i know is when my stomach is empty; the only pride...Read More

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

Plantae I

As I remain in my earthly womb, respite,
Unflowered cribbed in my ultimate bed,
Whilst transpiring bared to individual elements retorts,
Oft includes distinguishable rain, midst their convictions,
Expounding relished energies of nourishing necessities,
Ex parte, neath I sprout, unnoticeably,
Embedding my toes, feverishly spreading,...Read More

To Thine Own Self Be True
From down the rows and across the aisle
I look at you, you look at me
Not sought out yet not in denial
It’s there but should not be

An aubade to a...Read More

A blushing sunset calls my name
in harmonies of fond farewell
Where wishes on a pastel flame
compose the dreams I now foretell
For here among the colored skies
when whispers flit upon the wind
I gaze amidst my wandered sighs

Frustrated by my
Inability to cope

Free Verse on Love

I want you in my life;
more than anyone else.

I want to hold you;
till Earth fades away.

I want your kiss;
till we can’t breathe.

I want you;
while we live.

Just you;
till death.

The opposite of OY is YO,
Two words that most New Yorkers know
And people ‘cross the globe as well,
Though what they mean, not all can tell.

So I’ll explain: the term “Oy vey”
Expresses “Woe is me!” dismay
Or “Oh, my goodness!” or “Good...Read More

The Butterfly
Butterfly, Butterfly, Oh! so fair
On gossamer wings you flit on the air
Soaring serenely high up above

You started to weep
And the tears that you shed
Flowed down your...Read More

A hundred years ago or so, the story has been told,
A fever swept across the land of going after gold.

The cry came through the camps and...Read More
