New Poems

The day my life commenced … wondrously great
Propels each endeavour as good success
Surely designed and authored by the Lord
Who grants grace, sufficiently abundant
Toward grand fulfillment, never worthless.

First among those days is my blissful birth
As parents’ love-fruit who bloomed in their...Read More

The Parking Problem

I swear, the way some people park,
it may as well be in the dark!

Two yellow stripes on either side
mark a space sufficiently wide.

And yet, as often as I’ve seen,
few drivers park exactly in between?

Is it a lack of visual acuity

Healing Win/Lose EgoNomial Intent

We belong together
Through all kinds of colonizing corporate weather,
We belong creolizing together.

So sings my mitochondrial DNA
when I listen deeply
to all prior matriarchal regenerations
speaking in still 
timeless win/win voices

Especially about polycultural outcome opportunities
and monocultural injustice 
incoming risks.

Coming Across a Snake

Conditioned by decades of life,
you’d think the flesh by now would have 
hardened sufficiently to bounce off 
any unexpected blow life is always 
throwing at us. Yet nothing gives 
the flesh a greater fright than when 
surprised by this slider!...Read More

Each Squawk Heard from a Hawk
Each Squawk Heard from a Hawk

Should sufficiently count each squawk,
That had been released by a big hawk;
Harder trying;
Feathers flying;
Changed mind and learned how to talk.

I heard today
a corporate goal
"To free the world of cancer."

What I heard, instead,
"To free the Earth of human toxic nature."

Often rooted
in feelings of not belonging,
not being good enough,
not even fitting in sufficiently,
too toxic,
too loudly aggressive 
and/or quietly sinister
to be known...Read More

Though possessed of a savour faire de luxe,

Only rarely am I known to succumb,
But since this matter is so serious,

In his essay "Let's Be Reasonable" 
Rev. Todd Eklof [The Gadfly Papers]
reduces reasonable to logical;

This is a common left-brain dominant error,
confusion between deductive premises
and coldly reductive conclusions
calculated assuming cause v effect linear formulas
more than feedback loops
of complex neurological relationships,
ecological analogical...Read More

"Tread softly because you tread on my dreams,"*:
It is an extremely famous quotation,
Of sufficiently proven duration,
Deservedly so, but to me it seems
To have become too commonplace,
Hackneyed beyond its intrinsic grace.
As a would-be poet who esteems
Most highly the work of Yeats,
Whose...Read More

A Rebel
Dress properly
Behave womanly
Walk nicely
Straight and not crooked
Eat wifely
But never too much
Thin ones are always preferred
Laugh courteously
Don't laugh out loud
How dare you speak so much
A slut or what?!
Speak politely if you have to
Else don't open that mouth of yours
But do smile...Read More

So blessed am I to possess heavenly hope*
	God’s enduring gift enveloping my salvation-scope
		Securely tied around His blessed eternal life’s rope…
			Never will I fear death and hell-blinding grope.

So privileged am I to enjoy heavenly hope midst hardship

Of all technological advances
That have occurred during recent decades,
The invention I think most enhances,
And is the pick of electronic aids,
Is that modest but marvellous device
That has starred in a most important role,
And is sufficiently cheap at the price:

There's something to be said
for doing the right thing,
even for the wrong reasons.

Reasons are about becoming, a work in progress,
as doing is about living, a lifetime process,
both fully where

and why
and what
and how we are
each day following disembodied wandering rights

It’s time to write of unnecessary things,

A Defiant Heretic

In darkest medieval times the penalty
for heresy was as close to Hell as any.
Either you adhered to church teaching
or it was death for not believing.
There was no place for criticizing
and certainly no compromising.
Church truths were absolute and eternal
as was the...Read More

I have noticed
all my daily educational journeys

Where do I come from?
And how do I feel today
about my journey so far from yesterday?
Our journey so far,
and yet not far enough?

I come from living waters
as profoundly liberating as the air

To walk on water was his conviction

Enjoyed the surf with great predilection

But the sea was too rough

And he called off the bluff

So The Lord delayed his wet addiction

When the ocean had sufficiently calmed

Jesus abandoned his hesitant qualm

But the sea intervened
