Premium Member Sounds of Devotion
Music soars in glow of Sunday air,
These days, never a rare affair;
For heaven's door is ever open-
For the sinners, always hopin'!

Softly goes the scented breeze,
That welcomes gradual honeybees;
In the warm stillness of the day,
Honeyed voices and organ convey!

Can you hear me -after Dayshaveronica
Mama says
I’m beautiful 
I’m smart
I’m loved
If this is true
Then why don’t you like me, mama?
How can you hurt me?
How can you face it with empty apologies?

Premium Member Another Year of Grace
With John Wayne snarling at me
from the television screen,
I quickly glance at my watch;
five minutes to the end 
of a year’s journey through
what the Psalmist would describe
 as the Valley of Death,
and what Dante would describe
as a descent through hell.

Premium Member A Poem For Christmas NIght
Greeted by the multi-lit display
draped over the hedges
and the railing of our front porch,
the brilliant lit Christmas tree
winks at us, welcoming us home
from the Christmas Eve Mass.

You settle comfortably in your chair
as I walk into the dining room.
Sitting down, I...Read More

On Pendulums And Rocking Horses History Is Made

Going nowhere closer to the sun or faster there 
When swinging pendulums from Democrat to Republican

Remains the same with nothing...Read More

My leftbrain deductive reason

since 2016 a patriarchal white privileged hierarchy

Where I am either egomaniacally at the self-righteous top

Longing for home
Must be the smell of dust
That triggers all this longing
Or is it the hollow musk
That left the heart with sting
Could be the busy streets
That makes me want to go
Onto the open fields
Anywhere near home
Must be the stares that kill
And drunken...Read More

O Stars
When I goggle at the screen
Of wild black yonder,
O Stars! I feel a blazing avidity 
In my vital limbs

Elan eyes of the angels,
Invested in with thousand finesses,
Show your cloudless sparkle to
the ignorant world

The magnetic star adjacent the Moon

When life happens
I would grab a pen and starts writing
In a piece of torn paper
Or the palm of my hand
I'd feel better then
Consoled and relieved and

But this time
I'd make a quick taharah
