The Glow
My heart is bleeding but no blood is dripping
My spirit is crying but no tears are flowing
The trees are moving but the wind is not blowing
A low feeling came over today that led my spirit astray
It rocked my emotion and...Read More

		Summer Place

A song crept into my soul today riding on the summer wind
Then peeked into my summer place closed for many seasons -
Windows shuttered standing on a grassy knoll
Whitewashed in the morning melody at the waters edge -
Waiting - held...Read More

To feel freedom
Easy now, so easy as if no strength was ever needed
As much a part of fluid movement as opening eyes I see with.

Easy, as if no long hours, days, nights, months no years
Easy, as if, no sweat, no exhausted lungs,...Read More

Eyes, in such a way, that some strange virture, some everlasting release
Was imparted to he. A strange bargain indeed; to resist the gods and to please
Satan in his rebellioin from all that was natural, yet also noxious
After a tie; for,...Read More

If there were no poetry...there would be people we would not know 
People like William Shakespeare and Edger Allen Poe 

If there were no poetry...What would Emily Dickinson be 
Would she live in isolation or live a bit more free...Read More

Time to get breakfast to start this
With a piña colada shake and I am 
off~riding on my Poetry Highway.

Ah! Add fresh California orange
slices to this delight.
That citrus scent keeps my pen 
moving, both day and night.

I have already commented, my...Read More

Beyond Today
You’ll never get to paradise,
by riding on a mule

You’ll never lose the Jester,
by acting like a fool

You’ll never shed the darkness,
by hiding from the light

You’ll never see beyond today
—entrapped in mirrored sight

Funom Makama Riding on a Llama
Remember Funom Makama,
Who went riding on a llama,
And viewed,
Family feud;
Fell off then had a trauma.

Here alone I slip through clouds

Bull-Bison Rodeo, Part II
...I must’ve passed out not long after that,
in the hospital people did say
that bison and bull went for ten minutes,
before the tired, and both slunk away.

The people called it the best rodeo
that any of them had ever seen,
some hippies protested,...Read More

The Race

Click-ity clack, 
the wagon tools along, 
the road;
as fast as it can go. 
The wheel(s) barely…
hanging on. 

That is how we run through life, 
riding on three of four, 
or maybe half footed, 
left footed, 
or even…
three toed. 

Slow...Read More

The gypsy who loved
Like riding on waves wavering
not sure where it takes me
searching for a log just to hold on, 
but helpless, and alone in an abyss.

Slumber, how I wish a day's sleep
to keep everything aside, and rest,
in my beloved’s lap, that warm...Read More

And there are thoughts of pretty scenes, nativity and wreathes we know,

Falling Leaves Specific to the Elm 

Long before Fall, Elm trees thin their leaves,
And Elm trees are the ones we have plenty of.
Tiny little ovals turn tan and gold and green and drifting,
Riding on hair and clothes to fall off...Read More

Premium Member Do You Have A Itch, Glitch Or Twitch

Last night, riding across a full moon I saw a witch,

that funny move she made was a twitch.

Maybe her move was just really an itch,

the wooden broom she was riding on looked like a switch.

Could what I was seeing be...Read More

Premium Member GETTING OLD

how suddenly the good times
come to a screeching halt
in our youth we were wild
nothing stopping us
crossing boundaries
pushing limits
climbed the summit
we were crazy just insane
how we thought fun times
would last forever
never did we think
we would get old
riding on magic carpets
laughed in...Read More

seasonal transitions
Proud daffodils have bowed their weary heads
And roses shed their petals one by one,
Green leaves transform to gold and fiery reds
The gilded reign of autumn has begun.

Farewell to fragrant bluebell woods of spring
And summer’s lush and verdant meadow grass,
In vain,...Read More

Search for Source While On Course

While we had been riding on a horse,
Searched countryside for each source,
We would need;
God did feed;
And He helped us to stay on course.

Ripples follow
 as wind walks along the waters,
it sings, a somber hum
 riding on the waves
eager to touch the crest
 calling out in whispered rhythms
that endless dance along the earth

They’re cute, little opossums; riding on Mama’s back; 
her tail rail, secures precious brood.  
They’ll grow to be lethal rats; 
they’ll try to eat your dog or cat and they will probably win their battle, as they have, giant...Read More

The miles passed 
As the stress fell away
With every passing tree,
Moving grass and open sky
Riding on the road to be released
From daily burdens for a while
Calmness ensued, things left behind
Except what I need for now
There's a time and place for...Read More

A melody
 unlike any other message we bring
played on the depths of inner heartstrings
 riding on the bow of a soulful violin;
notes beating along tight drum skins
 rumbling in the trees upon the winds,
