Dear Fragile Communicators Categories: anger, community, emotions, health, integrity, leadership, relationship, Form: Political Verse
Is passion a warm feeling
or a cold asset?
A uniting vision
or a fragmented virtue?
Or is passion both
mutually held motions
and away from
contagious active hope
and incapacitating despair?
Is personal knowledge,
consilience of feeling
confluence of all sensory receptors?
none dissonantly denied,
when confirmed by even one significant

Many paid the ultimate price dying in a far off foreign land
Or were injured by enemy action often carrying the mental scars
The cost of being a...Read More

Thralldom etched in Homo sapiens (mine) DNA
Though your true blue stated civilian
never enlisted nor impressed,
nonetheless I own an opinion
originally embarked on poetic quest
to express purposelessness,
when soldiers rest
at peace i.e. eternally,
many attired courtesy
smart uniform strong with zest.
Psyche steeped, macerated, brewed

Congress Categories: america, howl, political, Form: Political Verse
I hear their almighty roar!
Lions pontificating on the Senate floor.
I see wolves prowling the House chamber;
Howling to create a national anger;
Media circus masters have them controlled,
In the big tent they’ve both extolled.
Matters not who is in the majority;
Expanding authority, always...Read More
Fake News Categories: america, conflict, corruption, hate, political, Form: Political Verse
Who are the people behind the glass?
Men and women talking smack;
Running down our way of life;

May supreme Force
How is whiteness
And how is maleness
like left-brain dominance?

Contracts are secular agreements
designed to improve mutual odds

Life Planning Love Categories: age, community, earth, health, home, integrity, visionary, Form: Political Verse
We were sitting in our 60+ sharing circle
on a rainy Tuesday afternoon,
grey and raw and dreary,
listlessly speaking of the need to downsize,
to transition to a more manageable
more audible habitat.
And wanting to hang onto our independent mobility,
our cars, in most...Read More

Peace Mediating Poetry Categories: community, conflict, health, integrity, poets, psychological, relationship, Form: Political Verse
Thanks so much for forwarding
these John Paul Lederach stories
of un-learning academic approaches
to peace mediation.
I wonder if you remembered
my ongoing certification process
for justice-restoring mediation
in complex multicultural conflicting histories;
which are typically antithetical to resilient peace
through ongoing safe and healthy relationships.
With this background,

Blind Love Categories: god, hate, health, integrity, love, peace, trust, Form: Political Verse
Would it matter to you
if I believe in God
or the sacred interdependence of Earth
or our ProGenitor

Far more than I could hate you
Point of Departure Categories: earth, environment, health, home, integrity, peace, prejudice, Form: Political Verse
My time of promise,
before mistrust of parents
settled into growing fear
and grief into angry disappointment
Began with a visit
from a GreatHorned Owl
dying on our barbed wire fence
Announcing she would go before
but return for my time
to follow heaven's departed promise.
But, my father responds,
Reversing Appointed Times Categories: age, creation, happiness, health, integrity, peace, time, Form: Political Verse
I go back,
reversing imaged time
to when I felt
and knew untrammeled internal space
responsive within external
eternally immortal times
of Earth's regenerative history.
less fortunate re-imagining,
I hear no such winning exterior ecopolitics
with winning internal empowerment
since emerging from EarthMother's
redundant DNA nurturing womb.

Hate-Love Relationship Categories: earth, grief, hate, health, loss, lost love, Form: Political Verse
Where we embrace love,
Grief is as strong as death;
Where we are afflicted with hate,
Gratitude is as strong as death;
loss wished for.
Grief rages against loss,
Yet gratitude lost
can become violently angered,
of present and future
as past's reincarnate vulnerable pain.

Spangled Star Banners Categories: health, identity, immigration, integrity, love hurts, patriotic, Form: Political Verse
Oh say, did you notice
a national predative anthem?
without reflection of starlight
sent or received,
From waving flags predicting weapons

of mutual defensive risks
against international cooperative opportunities
In smoke-filled dawns of manifest destiny
toward freedom for all

King Midas Trump Categories: america, gospel, health, humor, integrity, parody, peace, Form: Political Verse
I wonder how Donald Trump thought
about his King Midas political narrative
at the time of his electoral college victory.

how thrilled he was with well-marketed turnout
at his self-celebratory inauguration.
I wonder how these...Read More

Why does a powerful moment of passion,
often feel like need for immediate ego-expiration,
harvesting over-filled compassion?

a tool for relationship-building
through impassioned out-pathic communication?
Why does a moment of life lived...Read More
