DESIRES FOR CHRISTMAS
This Christmas and other holidays’ fame
May Christ be exalted with His great name.

Hoisted by faith midst supplication zest
I trust God, the Source of gifts, indeed best.

Blissful peace and good success for us all
Shout my heart’s desires* against doubts’ pit fall.

Love-propped,...Read More

Success
So, you might be thinking,
Was the weekend a success?
Our grandson staying over
In the city? Goodness, yes!

The bus, the train, the dinosaurs,
A tournament of chess,
A playground smack in Central Park
And who could ever guess...

A play date with a neighbor's kids
Without a...Read More

Premium Member PREDICTABLE
In confidence, at three-card Monte when I'd choose,
A complete mark, I found myself destined to lose.
Pulling rabbits out of hats I was just a twit;
As a rank amateur whose hand always got bit.

Many times, I stacked poker decks to force...Read More

My Blured Hope

My thump is anchor of my docking
My reason is the traffic light of red lights only
My patience is the hand break of a vehicle

Their ‘batakari’ has wings to fly over me
Their worm-length’s shape...Read More

To the Young Woman in the Green Dress
Butterfly, from the corner of my eye, you drew my gaze,
Wings cloaked in seafoam, hair ablaze with amber and flame,
I: transfixed by your figure as you danced into my personal space.

I apologize for staring at you for so long it...Read More

I Rise
Author Dana Redricks
December 2, 2019

I rise although I may fail
I learn from my mistakes
Some lessons are learned
quickly and others come
over a period of time
but rather I rise or fall
there's a lesson in all
occasions
Never be afraid of failure
because it is in...Read More

They judge my abilities by...Read More

A Last Chance at Romance

For Weatherby it was a final chance
for an evening of possible romance,
inasmuch as at his age a date
with a lady had come quite late.
At seventy-five, he still had pluck
and with persistence and a little luck
he’d woo her, a spritely sixty-nine,
and...Read More

Belief
Sometimes you will doubt
then, within those times, 
occurs unseen success, 
and with it you find belief.

Sometimes you will doubt,
all you will do is question,
with no success or encouragement, but that of the far past,
you must find the belief just the...Read More

Premium Member Expectation For 2020
As I was in church one Sunday morning,
This thought came to me.
What is your expectation for 2020?
I thought and thought; What is my expectation for 2020?
I believe it is a year of faith or doubt, trust or fear.
Do you believe...Read More

2009 Hyundai Sonata funereal lament
Unaffordable, yet valiant speeding, 
tailgating, and zooming Pep Boys, I cannot dodge. 

Yours truly grief stricken

Yes, young I pooped on my own treasures
Creating such barren beaches gray
Seeming so eternally short then
Unfolding now under revealing waves.

Change roaring in paid me no mind

Premium Member BECAUSE I LOVE YOU




I saw the bitter tears of unhappiness
Running down your agonizing face,
Ravaged with pain,

And I became a sponge of compassion
To absorb them.


I heard the howling 
Of your starving stomach,
Echoing throughout your rebellious drained veins,

And I became a sweet loaf of bread

Mami Owon
It is so true that good mothers are rare.
In the furious face of hunger,
And in the ferocious jaws of sickness
You have always been near.

Expressing my love for you,
Or to seek help from you,
But...Read More

Light
Light, elusive and omnipresent. 
Hidden behind life’s trivialities, 
Rearing shine through bouts of success. 
Like a dark cloud in a bright sky, 
We unwaveringly gaze at that whose sail has been set, 
And who’s distance separates the seas from the...Read More

Providence
For some, ignorance is their strength,
taken false providence to all its length.

Premium Member Fear of Success
Fear of personal
and disconnecting
ego-success
feels reasonable to me

Too much adulating feedback
from old friends vaguely envious
that I would place myself above 
and before them
sacrifices integrity
more resonant with us,
immersed in ecosystemic success,
embodied health,
resilient Earth-rooted wealth.

Children
especially straight white physically-privileged adolescents,
have grown self-empowerment rights
to autonomous...Read More
