And here's the photo: a willow that does not cry
a pond in which poverty is looking at herself like a man
hair like thatch on this tawny-colored head
and a grasshopper that does not jump anymore

Let’s face life together and do it in style
Waltzing through richness of work in the fields
And test our values, to see what we yield.

Premium Member Heartbreak Hill

Moments pass away as distant church bells dirge;
their widow’s woe in windy waver trembles my tears.

Up the westward hill smoldering neath sunset’s pyre, I carry
the remains of our song in the broken beats of my being, yearning
to yield to burning...Read More

"In These Days, We Prayed"



On this journey, we call life,
We are all survivers.
Striving daily, 
Hoping for another life. 

But time, 
And the time cometh for us also to die.
When you pass away
What will you be remembered for?

The Foe

There is a foe that stalks among
The old, the middle aged, the young
Without respect for time and place,
Undaunted by one’s creed or race.
It has so many ways to catch
Its unsuspecting prey and snatch
It from its dreams or hopes or...Read More

How many tears
One day will come
 When I pass away
When I go home
 To face Him
He waits with love
 Arms open wide
I know I cannot
 Look Him in the eye
How many times
 Did I fail Him
How many times
 Did I knowingly sin

Bid adieu
Do I now bid adieu
 To each of you
  Who now may pass away
To different place
  And different time
    Different name known

Time together
 Now may end
  Paths may here part

No more shall we

Her hair,gray and gnarly, wow!
It scared some folks, she really did 
look like a bat from hell.

Moonbat had no kids, but a PC she did.
So she...Read More

Ask any of the strangers in the dark
Lonesome highways to ride in the rain
Some joy, some pain all just riders born
Passengers of the storms
Just killers in the mode

A tsunami rising plague ~ hard slaps upon your face

At best a few regrets ~

Nothing good happens to me ~ so throw the Sun into the sea

Beacon that we are under twinkles,
And as I do get older skin wrinkles;
Die each day;
Pass away;
Now on my grave water sprinkles.

It doesn't matter how fine your house.
Or what kind of trips you took.

The Bank records in your books.

How famous you are will soon pass away;
And you will be yesterday's news.

If we knew today was our last day…

He worked a lifetime on an ageless thing,
An ideal, lofty and high.

Premium Member Goodbye
Is there any word
that conjures up
more heartaches than goodbye?

Friendships end
and lovers part
we often don't know why

Some pass away
and such a loss
can cause my soul to groan

While others simply
venture off
to distant parts unknown

When circumstances
force upon us
separate paths to travel
