Heaven Will Glow
Oh how my spirit is groaning
And the tension round about me is mounting
It is the feelings that you get when you
Passion is running high and 
you want to leap and touch the sky
I want to reach out and touch someone

it seemed like
two tight busted
bloused women
we're going to have

a round about but
a meaningful in
cluded very stout 
woman broke it up

no one wants to watch
this she shouted as the
ratings plummeted about
but as soon as she left set

all that made

Echoes Of God
I sometimes find myself listening for God's footsteps
as He treads softly,oh, ever so softly round about me....

I sometimes find myself wanting to shake God's hand,
gently, lest my own hand is crushed by His might....

I sometimes find myself wanting to give...Read More

"Midnight to 3.33, Morning Kills"

He said, 
“Go to where the poets go
Love rolls wet and sways
Intensity wraps itself inside out
and somersaults its legs backward
to open a way
It’s kind of burning hot 
like Summer burns 
bare feet on 
powdered shells
there it...Read More

Marinated Rabbit Stew
I went fishing with my brother Ron, and a bloke named Tommy Grace.
We had camped along the Tarago where we could fish on Harvey's place.
Ron brought along his rabbit traps; he don't like fishing much you see,
and kept 'yapping' all...Read More

Five Senryus One Poem
When the day is done
The Suns work is o’er and
 Light glides down the wall

In shadow deep lie
Souls asleep..adrift at peace
Dark enshrouds us all

The Earth in somber
Majesty spins round about…
Light slides up the wall

Refreshed by sleep
Wake most of us…most...Read More

Premium Member Shades of Grey
Abundant shades of grey
Along my way into the city
On full display hypocrisy
The gravity of modern living

One million heated caves
The lighting dots the landscape
Absolved from ancient cares
Within the lairs retired from frenzied motion

Inwardly indifference soothes our minds
All entrained by light and...Read More

Just To Say a Word
It's been here all of my life
my tongue has fought this
to get words formed so to speak
what if I could speak without a miss

Now nearly three score years and ten
at times one feels forward so slight
reminisce of that school first...Read More

Let God Be God
A Rare and Fine Actor
can also be a very
common, self-serving

Sort of like,
all poets are writers
but all writers
are not necessarily
poets—nor even

I guess, what I’m saying
in the Round-about is,
Let God be God
while knowing that
men will always be
men when it comes
to sex and...Read More

A Shadorma

My soul has
earth roots tunneling
down into
earth’s belly,
swirling, curling round about,
among creatures there.

My heart rides
their elevator
going down;
deep into
mother’s sheltering, calm womb
and drinks eagerly.

I have swum
womb waters fathoms
deep and dark;
dank caverns
where most humans never go;
embrace her heartbeat.

Oh Gaia,
sacred Mother Earth,
nourish me
until...Read More

going round about 
town seems to have 
found they're none 
to be found

so none 
would be hurt
but it's still 
worth to pray
for god's sake 

and dismay
to banish 
what never was
yet now

The Unwanted:
They Cry For Life

and wrapped him in black plastic,
and threw him into a refuse container;
because there was no room for him in her life.

Christmas Without Laurie
My God!  I won’t see you lie down beside me,
Won’t see you wake, turn, watch the Christmas tree,

Nor hear your breath, as you sleep next to me.

The Old Dog
At a point where the old road meets the hill
and runs down the other side
There's an old tin shed that's standing, still
and a grave where the old dog died

He surely had seen better days
when our paths chanced to cross
As I...Read More
