Hailstone Crowns
“Fire” alarm sirens
are going off [the audible radar]
stealth silently
Those living deaf 
can’t receive
the incoming Death warning

Sky chariots on the roil warpath
are thunderclap rolling
Propaganda leaflet droppings
did foreshadow 
their cursed dire coming

Ordnance jewels are falling
from hailstone crowns — 
“All hail the GOAT...Read More

Deep connections 
Wanting it in
Wanting more of more 
Wishing no end
Loving this entanglement 
This digestion 
This happening 
All of it in permanence

Dark ecstasies 
Soft manacles
The gentle noose
The confines shared
Rules of engagement 
Fire in the hole 
The deafening 
The rush crossing...Read More

Just one more click of the calendar
And.... nothing changed. 
Numerology danced its neat little dance
Utterly ignored by the universe.
At midnight, as the new year dawned,
Rest assured, the rules of engagement remained:
You, against the world.

Premium Member Until the fight is done
My confusion comes from too much doing. During the news
eating cheese and crackers, drinking wine, thinking the world
needs me.

Or the falling leaves, the days shorter but so much brighter.
How the cloud cover of the canopy has lifted to reveal
maybe God.

Working in The Hospice
To Work In A Hospice Just Be There and Care.

Bring yourself, It's all that you have and it's real,
Everyone needs to be understood and to feel.

Treat others in the way you want to be,
Hear what's unspoken, listen for the key.

The Skin Game
When the passing touch of a life long  friend
Becomes the caress of a new lover
The rules of engagement are rearranged
Who do you talk to about each other. 

When problems arise and they surely will
And you are sleeping with your...Read More

Morning Fog On The Water
The rules of engagement are 
etched out in time
The fog's holding sway as  the 
sun tries to shine
Through a blanketing smokey 
enveloping shroud
Outmanuevering all access to 
sunshine and clouds

The swells on the water in 
cadence appear
In accordance with luna and...Read More

Walking in the Wind
I was walking in the wind looking to the sky,
Seeing all that’s before me and wondering why?
How did I get here and make it this far?
Maybe I slipped in when I found the door agar.

So many things around me go...Read More

Friendship floats freely like waterfalls,
Falling down from on high. They spray
Welcoming mist, we breathe into our lungs.
Friends are like tides rolling in, receding again.
Letting us breathe a peaceful solitude, if that is
Our mood and stories are shared without
Judgement, ridicule or...Read More

Premium Member In These Days
In these days when times are tough
And billionaires can’t get enough
Our enemies are overjoyed
Our CEO’s should be unemployed.

They have sacrificed the country for their greed
They’ve left integrity on the ground to bleed
A lifestyle of royalty, unmitigated gall
Then ask for the...Read More
