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

Going After Gold

A hundred years ago or so, the story has been told,
A fever swept across the land of going after gold.
It seemed each person caught the urge, and they just could not rest,
The cry came through the camps and...Read More

God Can Use Me

The fact that God could use a worthless soul like me
I’ll never understand, nor will I fully see.
For I know my life well, my failures, faults, and sins,
And yet He wants to help me a new life...Read More

God's Love Story

God reached down one day
To all us sinners who had strayed so far away;
He sent His Son, the price of sin for us to pay;
He gave His blood as there in agony He lay--
He loved us so.
We deserved...Read More

True terror taps
on my bedroom window.
I know that I have
no choice
but for a while I
under the covers,
the air becoming
more and more stale
as my breathes become
deeper. And quicker.
The tapping is music and
rhythmic and present and
all in time with the frantic
beating of...Read More

State of perception placates
sun or moon
incubi or mindful art
dreamlike lays or lucidity

a place of rest where we are restless
turning in and tuning out
body's give but souls still shout
exuberantly in the echo chamber of the heart

arrows bent and often missed
butterflies all...Read More

Hubs favorite thing
When my head becomes tired
My favorite place to rest
My head upon the soft curves
That make up your beautiful breast

Whether they are old or new
Whether they are big or small
Yours are my favorite pair
But I really like to like  them...Read More

A piece of plastic around world
Gathered in one place by wind and flow 
Called ocean

And it takes 20 to 30years to be recycled into dust 
The place called ground if it gets full

The Souk And The Crook

On thursdays, the market place is full
Hustle and bustles' ripe time to rule
A helter skelter trade at rush hour
A busy hive raging with actions' power

From every spot, rise screams and yell
Rise auctions echoes about...Read More

Missing Group
Being pulled from all sides in different directions,
with force so strong that can move a mountain.
These are ropes made of ego,masked with righteousness,
scented with entitlement and pride.
confused,worried,a little lamb,running and searching for haven.
Saw all the beautiful and colourful things,and ran...Read More

The world of astrology is in lament,
And on deep mourning is intent,
For the sad loss of Robert Zoller,

It is always a blow when such people are lost,

Fellow medieval devotees
May include nominees

Kansas is the home of the tornado and the deer
I did not fully appreciate this until I moved here
I see them in my yard bashing my bird feeders round
When they break, the deer lick the feed off the ground.

The squirrel collects,
to keep his winter safe.
The oak tree buds,
not a branch left out of place.

The grass will grow,
another spring comes forth.
The flowers will bloom,
the ducks and geese fly north.

The birds will sing,
as if hatched from a master plan.
The bunnies...Read More

Dashing through newborn dewdrops
Creating playful shadows

In the month of April that is my birth date!

Weathered cracks in the stone
The seasons how they forge you so,
A barren place, yet still a home
For in your midst a flower grows.

When round about the soil is sweet,
Yet there you cling, fearing no fall
