New Poems

The person that I've grown to be
Has rhythm in her soul.
Music shaped my life, you see
It played a central role.

The sixties made us “Twist and shout”
The Beatles held our hand.
I liked the things they sang about
They're still my favorite band.

What Are They Teaching Kids With This
Protesting protest
that’s what this be
Look and take notice
at the stupidity 

On a Record breaking day
Seeing fossil fuels fade away
as reusable power the majority
we see a drop in generated bad air in society
Active steps successfully reducing pollution 
Yet schools are teaching...Read More

Who's sung "I'm in the Mood for Love?"
   Then again -- Who hasn't?

Who's announced, "I'm in the mood for pizza!"
   Perhaps, rather -- Who hasn't?

Who's proclaimed, "I'm in the mood for a drink or two!"

What the Butler Heard
Extract from a memoir

Lord Illustrious Penge of Lampwicker Hall,
Welcomed local Toffs, to his Name-Dropper ball.
Noses upturned with a touch of conceit,
Hob-Knobbing with gentry and gentleman elite.
Colonel recalled, his luncheon with Churchill,
Discussing backbenchers and a new Commons bill.

Tribute to Earthworm Dave
For the past half billion years
They crawled the earth both soil and sphere
Million trillion unknown souls
To eat and breed their only goal
Homme or femme hermaphrodite
In pairs romance 'neath damp moonlight

Throughout the year they dig and toil
By the billions aerate soil

It's been a bad day
What, no my mistake
not today
I'm just getting it out of my system
before the 14th of February rolls around 
It's a record breaking bad day for me
All the 18 years I've been breathing 
my luck falls awful

Such was time, a record-breaking passage
When you were forever, my endless mate,
A sleeping rose wrestling against ill fate
Touching a hag’s needle in an era of rage.

Yet I sought you, enmeshed in feisty strains
Bound helpless by a a mad witch of...Read More

The long wait is almost over
Later it’s Christmas
Are we all prepared?
Wait until midnight 

The sweet smell of salad
As luscious as happiness
We’ll make another remembrance
This much awaited Christmas

Cracking up fireworks
Smiling when the nightfall comes
As everyone will start grinning
New memories are about...Read More

Premium Member Hey, Lord

Hey, Lord...
It's been another day—
Another day of little nothings.
No brilliant fireworks!
No record-breaking events!
No fantasy dreams come true!
Just another day.

I breathed, I ate,
Kept warm, dry, and safe;
I worked, played, and slept.
I saw and heard.
Tasted, smelled, and felt.
I loved and shared—
Was loved...Read More

Never heard this expression, 'polar vortex' before this year

Wish it had never entered my vocabulary

Bone chilling, beyond human endurance

Not civilized, whether you were born in the north or...Read More

Pause a while
Dear friend, let us pause a while and live

That the competition can be foregone
And yet, another fills the gap

And the heart leap

You, your friends and family so many voices
had to wait, anticipate the budget and the worth
of words said out loud to ride rapid electric lines.
Still sentiments of love freely fly on telepathic planes
