When children and adults were not at war
There once was a point in time and space,
When children and adults were not at war,
When children were free to explore,
When adults were far enough away to ignore,
But close enough to adore.

I was a child in that time and in...Read More

Plot of Garden
I spy the plot of dirt,
And contemplate its worth 

Covered with brambles and weeds,
Or planted with foods that I need

Will my work to prepare the soil,
Be rewarding enough for my toil

I decide the therapy of a garden,
Beats the devil’s bargain...Read More

“Nobody likes a clown at midnight.”       Stephen King


Darkroom abscessed 
with neon blush and black-blood —
sunken eyes look surprised
to find oneself in a dank dungeon.
Fecal stench, not humorous,
screams on each bold painted-on...Read More

Twinkle, twinkle, Little Star
Who can tell what pronoun you are

Oh so far away in space
No one even knows your race

A paragon of effervescence            
Do you have a sexual preference?

Premium Member The time particle
He floated tonight and saw it for sure, 
Magic filled up the whole sky,
He saw beautiful particles wherever he looked, 
He saw time just slowly float by,

And the further he looked the slower they got, 
He saw in a galaxy...Read More

Peace of Mind
Where do you find, 
Peace of mind

Is it a physical place you go,
Hidden from everyone you know

Or a place you visit in your head,
Maybe a quiet space instead

To collect your thoughts,
Or strategize the battles to be fought 

Is it to...Read More

Premium Member Defining Friendship - Expanded
Does it mean we are friends if I mirror your thoughts,
That we like the same jokes or our politics sing
A conventional melody?

Does the ground shake (we stand on) when boundaries slip,
When emotional dams burst, magnetic fields flip
As convection cells drift...Read More

Premium Member Beware Boo Radley
Whatever you do, keep out of that place,
That old house with troubles beset,
Boo Radley never shows his face,
But he hasn't been carried out yet.

I remember - how could I forget?
When that family was in disgrace,
Boo's probably in a bit of...Read More

I’ve had brighter days
That held me somewhat closer,
That began a bit softer,
And had calmed my anxious way.

I’ve seen stronger moments,
That had sort of helped me to see things clearly,
Where there was space for everyone,
And it was easier to believe.

I’ve walked...Read More

Here we are again
With me with my small voice 
smaller still than it was before
Reaching deep into the darkness to find you 
to give you my hand and tell you that you are not alone
Here we are again

I surrender
I surrender,
I have fought the good fight,
I have outlasted most,
In the fight that is seemingly lost.

I will leave the battlefield.
To spend more time with my grandson.
So one day in the future he might be the one,
To stop the slide into...Read More

True terror taps
on my bedroom window.
I know that I have
no choice
but for a while I
under the covers,
the air becoming
more and more stale
as my breathes become
deeper. And quicker.
The tapping is music and
rhythmic and present and
all in time with the frantic
beating of...Read More

Last Episode of Pure Fantasy.

Fireball always seems to take center stage,
Except in the last episode it was with absolute rage,
Echoman has secretly loved this ravishing beauty
Lost her to a human whilst she was on duty!

Premium Member Out To Pasture
Retirement from community development,
facilitating cooperative economic justice
in this post-millennial time of climate crisis,
feels like being put out to pasture
with the rest of us toothless and feckless horses

Stalking senior centers
and gated communities
to weather the fade-out storm
of physical
and mental,
and spiritual encroaching unease
and...Read More

I used to cry at the littlest of things;
Upon rethinking this what does it really bring;
Mystic Misty rather cloudy rays;
My tears flow down my face;
Like a raging storm amidst the suns glaze;
Down flows on  downflo unto my intimate space;

Premium Member No Fear of Snakes
I step gingerly into my yard
Avoiding the leaf piles 
For that is where the snakes hide

The ground is frozen solid.
But they are down there.
In their hidey-hole, waiting.

I have a regular garter snake; I fancy she is a she.
She sits at...Read More

Premium Member I Failed I Fear
It is all my fault, for I am in command,
We sped into space with aspirations grand.

As we neared lightspeed, we saw pulsars,
And twinkling stars, deep space memoirs.

The cosmic sights were dazzlingly unreal-
Red giants and colorful nebulae surreal!

Stars as blue as...Read More

In the intimate interlace of chance and fate, in the ultimate interplay of time and place, and with the consummate checkmate of my human dignity, all that is -- is over, in the stormy, swarming space of mere moments.

Spare a thought
Middle of the road,
or somewhere in between,
Over and beyond,
is where I should’ve been,
Living in the undergrowth 
Staying more or less unseen 
Now a piece of roadkill,  
belly up hasbeen. 
As you drive on by,
Spare a thought for me.

Shadow Of The Night.
The warm embers still glow brightly
After the blissful fire
My mind is in outer space
I gently stroke her sift tresses
And her beautiful precious face
As she nuzzles her head upon my chest
Her arms wrapped around me
Makes me feel like...Read More

If you square two and take away from eight,
In the month of April that is my birth date!
Write month-date as lucky angels dictate, 
like a pair of akimbo dancers on ice skates!

Year Twenty Twenty-Four, they will choose one
within a special group- right now, just twelve;
another five in training, wrapped this year,
will graduate as women astronauts.

These novel astronauts are moonwalkers-
twelve of full thirty-eight are brave women.
Whoever thought, way back in 'sixty-nine,
