Just a grainy photo
in a missing persons file
A blurry time worn image
of a fading face and smile

Forgotten people through the cracks
have slipped and gone away
By whose hand to God knows where
there is no clue to say

They wandered off the beaten...Read More

Copy Me
When I count up to three
Stand up straight and copy me
Clap your hands
Now touch your toes
Wiggle your bum
Then hold your nose
Place your hands on your hips
Blink your eyes and lick your lips
Shape your mouth into a grin
Shout hurrah and rub...Read More

Intimation of beyond
Intimation of beyond

The attraction of the twilight firmament in a hazy stream,
invited me to ponder on the meadows of this timeless esteem.
Where this rotating light is a constant reflection by global sight,
apparel of celestial confinement in each moment of light.

Awesome, I like this, Good job, 
So strong, Solid grasp of shape,
Are some of the phrases people leave, 
When my art helps them to escape,

From the humdrum of life on repeat, 
Escape the predictable drive,
When my art allows minds to...Read More

She Loved Horses

An awe of cavernous heartbeats
turned her features equine.

Listening to wind-hollowed chests,
she heard the shape of her life,
the blowing of tubular organs
elongating her face,
into sculptured snorts.

I liked her snagged toothiness. 
the linkage of her broad scapulars,
deeply tooled and studded,
a back ready...Read More

A shape less piece of drift wood
Floating on a calm lake
A lonely shoot of a lotus
Staring solemnly at the sky

A single muddied pebble
Lying still on the shore
A broken strand of spider silk
Hanging motionless on a branch

A world of perfect stillness
Hoping...Read More

by phase of time the idea grows up

Premium Member Peace Mediating Poetry
Thanks so much for forwarding
these John Paul Lederach stories
of un-learning academic approaches
to peace mediation.

I wonder if you remembered
my ongoing certification process
for justice-restoring mediation
in complex multicultural conflicting histories;
which are typically antithetical to resilient peace
through ongoing safe and healthy relationships.

With this background,

Why do some poets write so good?
I, for one, only wish I could. 
You know - be all clever and stuff,
My words? Well, they’re not clever enough.

I read their poems, shaking my head,
It’s time I did something else instead.

My grandmother’s sewing machine,

it wasn’t the measured meanness 
nor the pig blood
nor the rampage of Carrie’s revenge
but the quiet walk
to the graveyard
depositing flowers
remembering the saint...forgetting the maelstrom
as the grub-filled hand erupts through the soil
to impale one more victim.
the grave has no conscience.

A vixen lies down to pant at midday,
the grass takes her shape,
bends for hours to the heat of her body.
Water, trees, forestations of fungi
amid a deeply impression’d earth ---- Frogs
glimmer on clammy pads,
as a loose congress of small mirrors.

In a crisp surge
Watch tale emerge
In strokes that urge

Poise in clear choice
Fling succinct voice
To forfeit noise

Words shift and shape
To dive and drape
The final cape

Works of pure grace
Now fits the face
Where time holds place
