A Poem For My Ministry Site Visitors 

A Small Oblation

I do not minister for money,
But somehow it seems kind of funny,
That those who let me build this site,
Somehow feel that it's alright,

For me to pay a monthly fee,
To offer all...Read More

Premium Member The Green Valley Wood Incident

I'd been working overtime one hot august night
And finished about nine thirty; the sky was still bright
Took a short cut through woods at the edge of town
Was looking forward to a hot shower and a lie down.

I passed the empty...Read More

Premium Member Oliver, a Boy
When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist 

Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light
But...Read More

What it Did
Four o’clock sure comes quickly
The early bird gets the worm
Meetings at 6:30
I’ve worked so hard for all I’ve earned
I was focused on the future
Trying to build my legacy
Rising to the top
I lost all sight of you and me

Pardon mine allegiance to infidelity
Unfaithful marital transgressions
self admitted indictment,
crime and punishment,
no longer think high lee
entailing no mister re: demeanors,
I searingly weathered

(George by bushed, albeit thankfully,
no unwanted child left behind),
nonetheless one unforgettable
indelible, execrable, and abominable
professedly owned his
civil warring battle of life

transgressions undeservedly heaped

Premium Member The Former Ghost

In the kitchen she sits on a three-legged stool.
She died in the living room,
her heart burst, and out flew
all the skills of her hands.
Now she cooks the twilight between the days,
the dried fruits of yester-years.

I watch her thoughts take shape,
how...Read More

Premium Member Motherhood and Employee Britches
Like a parvenu with new found riches,
I had to adjust to the new thrust of
wearing both motherhood and work britches.
But unlike riches with pleasure twitches,
my changes gained me pressure stiches!
I became a day and night thriving,
gotta getter-doner energizer
conquering to-do lists...Read More

"S is for Silence"

Once Love lived in a heart

Becuase her husband was drunk

Ode to a toilet on a mountaintop
I climbed a mountain in a land of sun
Of epic landscape and of sweet cuisine
But scarecely had my lone ascent begun
Than woke a silent urge for a latrine

Too long must I have lingered at the wide
And bounteous smorgasbord in the...Read More
