Did you see?
Did you look?
What do think?
They are so…   …   ?

Words heard directly, 
indirectly or by accident, 
but never by intent. 
Not things you would say…
to anyone’s face,
especially theirs.
No! 
 
Not things you would sing.

My Favored 

My heart beats faster when you are near. 
I can not think straight. 
I have been blindsided by a moving truck, 
that has no tangible substance. 

Your beauty is breathless, 
as that is the feeling I have...

The Curse of Conquerors Past, Part III
...Not many people could unite such a force,
it was Williamson who was the lynch-pin,
if he could be killed they all would splinter,
amongst the horde civil wars would begin.

This, it appeared, was the best option left,
even if it meant many more...Read More

The Fact(s)

It started with a poem. 
Penned in by mistake. 
Then it ended up in a letter, 
that later turned into an email. 
That was forwarded, 
not once but a thousand, 
and then ten million times. 

Then someone was asked,...Read More

(This poem deals with the Corona Virus. 
It is very intense.)

My kid's school called.  
The college. 
They said that there had been...
a national concern; regarding the Sun.

That was not it.

In the cold space,
between the ceiling and the rafters, 
angels drift like butterflies, 
ever answering the calls, 
of both hope and sorrow! 

A mother's song, 
a father's whisper. 
A loved one lost, and one born.
Close to heaven and ever nearer...Read More

Another Day

Dreaming about tomorrow, 
it is all that I have.
It makes me happy. 
When there is no other way. 

I wish that you could come today. 
I wish that you could stay. 

We could play and run and laugh.

My coffee is hot,

The screen, 
the window out and into the world...
awaits my thoughts and dreams,

Small green weeds, 
with little seed pots, 
that stick to your socks. 

They travel with you, 
to the next place, 
that God wants them to go. 
Not all things are useful,

I...

(long passionate, embracing sound, 
not of voice, but only closely related,

I have been blind with age.

Premium Member And When They Die
Apparently this style of verse, relying on alphabetical order, has a

Biblical background to its popularity, hardly surprising,

Considering the vast number of people who remain

Devoted to the ancient and improbable concept of

Everlasting life, promised by an all-powerful

Father, known by the conveniently...Read More

A Wooden Riddle

I walk through walls, 
but I'm not dead. 
(as they are unfinished) 
I try to keep the plans, 
locked in my head. 
From the morning I wake up, 
until the time I hit the bed.

Your bright light...
is beyond beautiful. 
As You are King. 
That means everything, 
that it can and more. 
Beyond my reckoning. 

I long to dance,

in your court, 
in heaven;
or do as you say... abide.

The storms will hit soon. 
The cellar is full.

Toilet paper with teddy bears!
Bought by rich women with other wares.
Sold initially at world's fairs.
Amid joyous laughter in the airs.
Some people looked with ridiculous stares.
Such nonsense found at world's fairs!
Soon they will be coloring apples and pears

As I set here quiet,

Skippy shadows,

Once We Were Friends
I am not mad,

I am not sad.

I do not care,

You're choice was there.

My boyfriend cheated,

It was you that I needed.

You cried you're problems instead,

When all I needed was a leveled head.

Pushed me aside,

And those feelings I just let ride..
