~~A Unique Wedding Ring~~

BRIDES have wedding rings so lovely,
in all colors, some with precious stones,
But you may not have mine, it's too

BRIDES really are their husband's sunshine,
in dresses traditional or new.
But I was married wearing a raincoat,
Love makes the vows,...Read More

Grand old flag
Freedom and our Flag

For those who never knew freedom.

My heart cries out in vein.

The cries of a dying nation going in sane.   

Pitted against each other mud slings both ways.  

The Statue of Liberty crying  as...Read More

Premium Member Did you notice
On either side the boarded footpath lie
Still pools in swamp with sinister reflection
Dull images and scenes of life gone by 
Suggest to heart a darkness and dejection

Where sun now lights the pines in...Read More

Premium Member Treading Water
Treading hard in a sea of lies
With anchor feet and foggy eyes,
Can we yet float another day
With no ship to take us away?

When seas were calm, we saw the shore.
With swelling seas, we see no more
Midst waves of tergiversation
That inundate...Read More

Lower the flags to half mast,
America the Beautiful has been gutted,
Its word emptied of all meaning,
There is no jubilant throng singing,
“Glory, glory Hallelujah!”
Our nation’s heroes rise 
From their earthen graves enraged
And cry out to the heavens,
“Have our cruel deaths been...Read More

Premium Member THE FIRST OF FEBRUARY 2020
Out into the crisp February morn,
Sunshine finally frees nature
From the long oppressive grip
Of the icy, snowy, bitter cold of
Grey darkness that has enveloped
Both sky and human heart alike.
Nature briefly awakens, 
The small winter birds scatter
And chase about the sky and...Read More

Fancy Nancy drives me wild.
She is Speaker on the Hill.
Tore Trump's papers like a child.
That capped it off, I've had my fill.

But that's not how it started out
When Trump addressed the nation.
He came in with his speech...Read More

In Australia’s darkest hours,
an ever-growing pyre
breeds a conflagration nation.
desolation, ruination
ravaged seas of deforestation;
extinctions’ ignition
bleeds deadly

Were Mother Moon habitable,
 the Koalas might escape,
scamper, flee
finding solace within
her refulgent body,
borne upon angel wings.

The Impeachment
The founding fathers in their graves
Are surely not at rest
For what they had intended
Has been brutally repressed.

The country’s been divided
By a madman at the wheel
And all attempts at justice
Somehow crumble and congeal.

At least a call of witnesses
Would help, if just...Read More

Many businesses were unoperational

Imagine studying by firelight
Mastering lessons till late at night

No matter how cold, to school he’d go

To promoting equality, he stayed true

Defeating the incumbent on that date
