"Time is the thief you cannot banish."
death, people, perspective, sad,
Over two-hundred thousand Covid-19 victims now;
easy to forget these are people, not "numbers of deaths," they are...

god, perspective, truth,
In the midst of a stormy ocean, God is the anchor,
rescuing one whenever submerged in a bottomless abyss.

beauty, change, seasons,
Hot summer picnics, swimming in the lake, diving into fun
Cool autumn days bring a colorful rain of leaves falling to see
earth, environment, nature, poems,
stones voice, echoes in the distance, a baritone frequency.
they tell of earth’s past, the origin of animals and dawn of man.
an edge-of-seat tale the opposite of what humans tell, stones cannot lie.
Harmony resonates...fulfills an abandoned chamber,
albeit, interims vigilantly monitored...by one's self,
seconds fleet onward...persuading one's lips to rise gladly.
Gleeful eyes revisit....a hosts of crossing memories,
each and all contain a measure...throbbing gently a ballad plays,

The cumbersome acting student told a gargantuan lie
Showing many of us cast member he was simply not the guy
Can you envision the rage and discontent? Are you willing to try?

Monsters of the Sea
A contracted seafarer...concerning no servile rank,
kept e'er involved watch...away from menial daily tasks top deck,
while steadfast wary of...the diligent taskmaster's whip.
A dawn swift gust...brushes the ship from a rocky pillar,

Chimed Upper Room
Chimed new day shines...eagerly corrects an upper room looks,
An attic improving rapidly...promotes roams of diligence,
Lacks found bordered leathered album...trapped topped a cornered desk.
Cutting edge mounts an Everest...Grand Canyon grooves a pass,

WOLVES ON THE RANCH
Sheep are shorn
not because it’s Spring wool has grown too long
Shivering as Winter’s blades dig in
furthering suff’ring’s wrong
The shepherd unsheathes his sword,
“vengeance is mine,” the Lord’s song
New day with green-yellow possibilities
rousing the trees.
camouflaging my nose, mouth and cheeks
but at least my eyes see.
I long to imbibe on the woodsy scent —
lids closed and mask free.
MORE BREAD AND BUTTER PLEASE
More bread and butter please —
man has needs that can be satisfied.
As he rumbles down the aisles,
he handles his affairs with pride.
Shopping’s his specialty —
A sizzling offering to his bride
