To Finish Her Song Categories: recount, flower, song, Form: Rhyme
her flower returns
New stirrings to write
new melody to learn
its present announced
Freeing your psyche,
love pledged again
Petals now varied,
spread from within
Bouquet filled enigma,
here until gone
Leaving always one seedling
—to finish her song
(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2017)
Another Season Categories: recount, 11th grade, for him, growing up, journey, Form: Lyric
These long days of summer
seemed longer than most,
and I recount the changes
as the season draws closed.
You turned a year older
and learned how to drive.
You tried some new things;
God knows how you survived.
You learned about friendship
and boundaries were drawn.
You learned...Read More
Inferno Categories: recount, irony, literature, philosophy, satire, society, truth, voyage, Form: Free verse
The taste of bile treads my thoughts,
Unwillingly my feet must now follow,
Source of inspiration guide,
Restore the signal fires now long lost,
Set beyond the temporal,
A path impassable by mortals,
The stairs of separation,
I must recount lest others falter,
Every sin a means,...Read More
What if Trump loses in 2020 Categories: recount, political, Form: Light Verse
President Trump's eyes glow magnanimous
when pardoning criminals for high crimes

An American Sonnet of Change, of Hope Categories: recount, change, Form: Sonnet
Two thirty a.m. and a start burnt out.
Heads bow’d; disbelief echoed silently,
drowned by men: white, old, laughing heartily.

a democracy once tall now stood stout.
Country of immigrants shook violently
against those who would alter policy...Read More
Ice Sleep Quickly Categories: recount, body, confidence, deep, endurance, heaven, meaningful, night, Form: Elegy
Ice Sleep Quickly...
Slowly counting backwards from one hundred
if restless, yet most every night/early morning,
when tiredness defeats ability to remain alert
though rarely these days no difficulty to dream
way before mentally mouthing the number zero,
a segue way into unconscious state disengages
awareness, nor...Read More
Outback Souls Categories: recount, eulogy, Form: Quatrain
Close 'round the crackling fire we three,
with sweet acacia in the air -
tell stories of Gallipoli
and digger's bond of friendship there.
We laughed and shared like family
with roof and walls of stars our home -
tracker Wiley, Henry and me
An Orphan's Silence Categories: recount, fear, writing, Form: Rhyme
I hide in the shadow
of another’s fear
so the voice may go away
And then left
inside an orphan’s silence
to recount every wordless day
To walk a path

under a dark...Read More

As I...Read More
Tides Categories: recount, allusion, Form: Prose Poetry
Your door will stay open for me
As always to let me in
To savour the repast
That awaits me on your dining table
Laid out for me;
Hungry I am.
At the table, I will surely recount
The jollity of our younger days,
Protected and cajoled...Read More

I trust the Word of God, my redemption-record
Reminding me of my ransom from sin-penalty’s cord
Reassuring me salvation so secured from eternal hell’s discord
Refreshing my heart by the Saviour’s love that granted me everlasting life’s accord!
I seek the Word of God...Read More

ANYONE WHO HAD A HEART Categories: recount, love, Form: Quatern
And anyone who had a heart
could see the blue in cloudless eyes,
though a storm trespass and tears leak
dreadfully down my caring cheeks.

and anyone who had a heart
can see his tenderness awaits
if...I can just...hold onto...Read More

A Plethora of Myopia and Hysteria Categories: recount, poems, Form: Free verse
The truth like stark reality remains immutable
Despite attempts to promote sophisms
Dressed up as verity and verisimilitude at a high table
Where misguided minds dabble at euphenisms and cynicisms
To disembowel and undermine global discourse
Indulging in fallacies
To subvert its course and purpose
Concealed in...Read More
The Fourth Dimension Categories: recount, age, allegory, internet, life, society, technology, Form: Rhyme
Seeking sight of another’s like for what thine own eyes like,
Perchance a Starbuck drink ye’ drunk, or a sun dunked up a hike.
For whom the post has pretended to be presented,
I surely no longer know,
Perhaps for a spirit we’ve seem...Read More

Have you ever heard
The pathetic rhythm of defeat?
have you yet drummed to the beat of losing feeling to the brain when logic is snatched away
By reckless hands of someone you cannot name?
Have you tried harder things than the rocks...Read More

It was the only fine day during a week
near Ullapool; a chance to launch for a sail.

Then half a mile to the north a...Read More
Life's Lullaby Categories: recount, poems, , Lullaby, Form: Terza Rima
Life’s lullaby at times of tensions tends to evaporate
As on Earth morbid mumblings multiply
To flicker our faith and to dribble us desperate

Although amen answers...Read More

Friend Zone Categories: recount, 12th grade, humor, relationship, sports, Form: Free verse
On a game field of the greenest grass
We’d touch, I’d run, and you’d pass.
I’d gain ground and you’d intercept.
Every game, we leapt and swept
Into the end zone to a climatic end;
Nothing left to defend or offend,
Too many touchdowns to surmount,
To Tell a Love Categories: recount, love, Form: Verse
To Tell A Love
How to tell a new love of another?
In voice quicker and drier than the wind,
pretending the cup shared with the former
quenched no thirst from its imperfect blend?
How does one recount to one's current love
the loving once so...Read More
