Where to go
To the north
Without knowing
Where to go
In the wind
Without knowing
Where to go
In a green leaf
Without knowing
Where to go
An ant
Without knowing
Where my hole
Like an ant
Probing and wandering
Without knowing
Where is GOD

The Shepherd's Hour

The moon is red on misty horizon
Within a dancing fog, and the plains
In vapor dozing, the frog complains
Among the reeds, where chill has arisen

Water flowers have closed their petals
In distance far, poplars show profile

Abounding with delightful childhood* experiences, awesome
Blessed am I by the Lord --- Source of goodness-bliss
Cheered along care-cuddles, more than candies

Enclosed with encompassing parents’ love everyday
Freed was I against insecurity’s forces within family joy’s fortress

The Night The Stars Fell From Heaven
at last something broke you
and that something, it was you
you were closing your eyes

the world outside and within
and i fell on your black day
you showed me how to live

Premium Member A leisurely walk
Awakening my zeal, smiles hazy morning
Taking leisurely walk in nature's daydream
Advancing slowly into dense fog's retreat
As sun's orange glow on the horizon rises.

Shining  dew refracts  in golden sunrise
Attracting rose blooms to admiring eyes
As buoyancy roams on butterfly wings

I Remember That We Rowed, You Were Afraid
I remember that we rowed.
You were afraid.
And so, I gave the oars to you,
I thought, you see – control
Would help you feel
It was your boat that moved
Beneath your unsure feet.
And then, I saw your leg, and I liked you!
You laughed,...Read More

A Water Scene
High mountains reaching upward
Trying to touch the fluffy clouds
Evergreen trees below these mountains
On the other side the same view
The lake is very calm and clear
Boaters rowing enjoying the view

An island is spotted-it is long
With evergreen trees growing
The ground is flat...Read More

Titillating Twenties
Flirting flappers
Whipper snappers

Big restrictions

Legs are showing
pearls are Swirling

Charleston’s harking
Lovers sparking

Dancing Lindy
With Miss Mindy

Afterwards hugging

Raccoon coats
Rowing boats

Bathtub gin
Fun never ends.

Don't know if any man,
flawed and sorry as we can only be.
Can meet the expectations of a woman,
who can truly see.
That word love,
the ultimate mystery,
must be the salvation and the key.
If both hearts aren't receptive,
and healed from transgressions of the...Read More

Bird shat on my car
Spent afternoon at car wash
Bird followed me home

Playing poker now
Everyone reading my face
My wager; all in

Having a small pair
Pushing in an all in bet
River hit; awesome

Scoring my dog food
My spot playing hide and seek
Enjoying my nod

With God We Are Rowing
With God We Are Rowing

When with God we are always rowing,
Faith in Him is growing and growing;
Much kelp;
Need help;
Maintain course when wind is blowing.

Jim Horn

Kelp slows down and re-directs boat.
Nice knowing that we have God's help.

Tiptoeing Through Moonlight
We tiptoed on the path covered with moonlight 
The canoe awaited for our swift quiet arrival there
Hanging fragrantly in the moist thick hot night air
The aromas of Night Blooming Jasmine lingered
No persons found within our sight of envisions

The Old Salt and the Sea

For the sun and waves look different
And sometimes they appear heaven sent

Sucking back his pipe in the usual way
We were sailing...Read More

Refusing to fight the major war,

The hour is late, 
And it's clear that my date

So I accept my fate

That its beauty will forego
The river within my eyes it's rowing

While On Boat Rowing
While On Boat Rowing

While being on boat, we were rowing;
Wherever we went had been knowing,
Shore is near,
And did appear;
Right beside us are sure God is going.
