Such A Plain and Simple Shack

In my long life,  any love did lack;
Knew I would have to return back;
Am trying  to find,
What I left behind;
Was such a plain and simple shack.

village in the mist
Driving up the highway
When I saw it in the mist
Like a pure and tender virgin
Still waiting to be kissed
A village all forgotten

You could see it from the highway
slightly hazy in the mist

Had time forgotten this poor place

We'd laid old George to rest the week before,
at ninety-one he now rejoined his wife,
no heirs to his estate, so one thing more
to do, and that's clear where he'd spent his life.
Downstairs had been quite easy, George was neat,
his things...Read More

Worst Poem Ever

This is the worst poem, I’ve ever written,
A right stinker that’s for sure.

I will discard this one to the waste,
Where all the rubbish belongs.
This verse doesn’t even...Read More

This Poet
I once knew this poet
Whose world was filled with rhyme
Said he couldn't help it

That he'd whirl his words around it
And a poem would come...Read More

How can I keep from staring
They say it’s rude to stare 
But staring is caring 
So forgive me if I’m staring

I’m looking at people 
Those people
With the backpacks on their backs
I'm talking about all of us

The very softest forms 
Of martial arts
