Procrastinating, napping,
Full of fried fast foods
Forgetting what optimism feels like

Age has sneaked up and overtaken her

Not a grain of urgency did he have
My watch told me that we were late
Of all the days to pick time to waste.

Sonnet to a Bad Habit
On selfish whim I hold tight to your heart
and offer crumbs to stay your tender flirt.
In truth, I wish to consciously avert
an earnest practice of your lovers art.
For if a flash of sloth sent Cupid's dart,
the "L" word from my...Read More

Premium Member Creatures
Cats are selfish creatures
And as lazy as can be
You can usually find them
Asleep beneath a tree
They are so very lazy
It would be hard to meet
Any other animal
That could compete
A sloth is not so lazy
Just very slow
It will never hurry
And does...Read More

Premium Member Prayer to Wonder
To encounter you in Cleveland
as if an angel drew my steps
into the intricate re-enactment of
an  Amazonian forest
A glass tank with a caption that  reads,
"Long- necked South American Turtle"
After intense staring into irridescent shallows
your shape emerges as a...Read More

Shell of a Father
Why must you make her weep?
Why must you be a sloth?
Why must you be a disgrace?
Why must you be a poison?

You may have helped give life
But do you show real love?
Do you truly value family?
Or do you just put on...Read More

We love to make lists,
To describe, name, number.
How can it have value,
If not on my list.
As logger I stand
Before the green forest,
The numbered trees
Are ones to cut.
The forest cut down
Is only to me
Bigger box to live in,
A shiny new car,
The...Read More

Not turning from the indigent I see
Should I aver egregious a view

Yet if I choose travail  to consecrate

Premium Member My Sloth-like Attitude
I purposefully do nothing.
My house can wait.
Mess delights me.
I thrive on it.

I purposefully do not care.
Wandering aimlessly.
Taking nothing seriously.
Enjoying my slothfulness.

sun rays settle skies
prism shelters diversity -
kids breaking hard bricks

wind spreads gentle seeds
prayer evokes mute silence -
too many lost souls

rain drops whet dry soil
scope scoops whirlpools of dry tears -
god should know better

earth circles tailspins
faith plants pinpoints of respite -

Premium Member A Sloth on my Stay-Cation
I am on a little stay-cation.
No plans. None.
Melting into my chair, my eyes close.
This is a napping house.
We keep it dark for the TV advantage.
It is easy to not know if it is day or night with our black-out curtains.

An angel returned to heaven today
deployed to erase gluttonous hate
from envy's grasp love is pulled away

To bring order to disarray
supplying hope while replacing sloth 
An angel returned to heaven today

pride is now faced with a...Read More

The biggest animal species on earth was ever been,
the dinosaurs roamed proud the land of the Jurassic.
In fierce fights they were the ones to always win,
everything surrounding them seemed so very weak.

Safe and Sound
Worry not, for you are safe.
Stay in place and stuff your face.
There's only entrances, no exits in sight.
You paid your way here, so please be quiet and enjoy.
All is handed to you, so don't complain.
Just ask for more.

The helm of darkness

It was a long fretful watch
Stretching years of secrets divulged 
Ifs and whys splashed everywhere
As one whose yearning eyes awaits

The forms, they hearts hold dearest, when the day
Sinks into fathomless, blackness night
And all the heavens are invisible...Read More

Seven Verses of Sin

Seven rode over Conceited Bridge,
In search of the Vanity Fair.
One rider named Pride slipped and fell,
Perishing at the cross of despair.

Six rode over the Plains of Contempt,
In search of the lost and unsaved.

Premium Member Contrasting Feelings
He stood still against the rails
of an unfrequented country passage
overlooking a deep valley,
now engulfed in inky darkness.
It was his little world,
a world he did not relish,
a chaos he was trapped in.
The wind wailed though he heard it not
nor felt the...Read More
