Admit That Trump Is Unfit
Admit That Trump Is Unfit

Are things about Trump we must admit,
Which is brain and body are both unfit;

Big belly sticks out when he does sit.

A broken people hearts and souls and a land ravaged and destroyed,
Look closely at how the earthenware pot was smashed- small repairs.

A broken list of lives, remembered once now forgotten- remember!
Like a mirror that has cracked fallen from its rusted...Read More

Shall I
Outside my closed window pass the young men, black hair and bronzed bodies,
Once I held such a man close to me-felt his strength and saw his beauty.

Inside my old mirror the one we gazed into to admire our reflections once,
Now...Read More

My mom loved to mix her imagination with reality
which meant her stories had a few twists 
I called her world Dreamality…making her a dreamalist.

I remember one night when I was young 
We were sitting outside…just her…and me
“Close your eyes.” She...Read More

My Old Mate
I would like to get it straight in my head
As he died in my arms I said
Old mates who knew each other well
Were riding around a bend to hell

A bright sunny day in December
And a nightmare I would always remember

As I think of the gift giving, the parties, the celebrations, I remember that not all lives are the same. For many this is a month of sorrow, for others a month of loneliness. Who decides that it...Read More

Premium Member Reckless
We had fun when we were young,
When seemed life had just begun.
We danced nights at the beach,
So filled with dreams to reach!

Reckless once, against the wind,
Hair untamed, wild, unpinned;
We were rebels.  We were free,
We weren't stuffy bourgeoisie!

Took a ride...Read More

An unfortunate day

Papa, you must come home early today, 
said the little girl, while the mother smiled.
Yes, my dear, we will go together in the evening, 
answered the father and
kissed her forehead and left for the day.
Weeklong imaginations, desire for a new...Read More

The Perfect Day

I believe I lived the perfect day, the ideal greatest day,
A day awash in a sunlit brilliance unseen since the first blink of Eden,
A day as buoyant as time standing resolutely still in the cool zephyrs-
A rarified floating...Read More

Some memories from childhood
are hard to forget.
I now remember one
without regret.

Our house never knew a lock.
No need for anyone to ever knock.
How strange then to find
no entry at the front....but never mind.

Around the back I dashed.
The scullery door for sure...Read More

Aliens on Earth

And so the darkest age had fallen
they knew not the friendly from the enemy
but each and everyone one of them
had become the foe

In dim lit rooms they tally their coin of economy
and gave complaint to the price of life
kevlar wrapped...Read More

Happiness contained through all our laughter
Remembering those who can't be with us now
It can be stressful those who left us suddenly 
Sharing memories of their time be memorable

I remember how I loved babysitting our grandchildren 
how neatly they fit into my arms.
I remember being impressed with their intelligence and captivated by their charms.

How they would spend the night with us…how we’d make sure that they were fed

I still remember that little girl
who didn’t like sharing her toys,
but swirled in the hurricane
and snatched away her joys.

I still remember that little girl,
singing blissfully all day long;
but rapped in the hurricane
and she forgot her happy song.

I still remember that...Read More

by Michael R. Burch

I caress them—trapped in brittle cellophane—
and I see how young they were, and how unwise;
and I remember their first flight—an old prop plane,
their blissful arc through alien blue skies ...

And I touch them here through leaves which—tattered,...Read More

I pray that we...
won't splinter in two!
We are fond, lifelong friends,
snugly tethered together;
our bright smiles beaming tête-à-tête
Oh, may we never say goodbye, so...
my heart sings whenever Dad comes to mind!

Monarch butterfly
When I look at a butterfly
I see reincarnation
Unfolding in front of my eyes
Of one being passing 
Through four stages
So extremely different
So uniquely wholesome
In one passionate attempt
To reach perfection
Of lightness of being
Starting at the edge of 
Milkweed leaf as a little...Read More

In this bedroom I type out
“Amazon” where are the socks,
And then, and then, a press,
And “chocolate” and a dog leash,
And oh, yes, the simple things 
To remember,

Here on this day of rain,
Emails of pain, will they make the grade,
So many...Read More

She questions her life..
She questions her mortality..
She questions her immortality..

Curiously seeking for answers ..
Of the unknown..

Who am I..
Why do we rise and fall..
Why is there pain..
Why is there suffering..

Imbalances exist in a perfectly balanced world..
Earth is beautifully balanced..
As she spins...Read More

It had been a hellish week.

On Monday
my lonely and tired AfricanAmerican husband
told me, as gently as possible,
that what I had hoped was a temporary separation
is to be extended into perpetuity.

This separation had been scheduled to terminate
when my Fetal Alcohol daughter...Read More
