I Almost
I almost went to Florida
To visit with my aunt
Until the virus landed
And my plans it did supplant.

I almost got a chance to see
A Sarasota treat.
The Ringling exhibition
Would have made the trip complete.

I almost got to quilting class
To start on something...Read More

Premium Member We Began Somewhere
We all began somewhere
not our own
and not on our own.

All life began somewhere
within Earth's regenerative systems
not our own,
as did Earth
Her EcoSelf.

No one is autonomously entitled
to sustained ego-awareness,
much less self-promoting narcissism.

Earth began someplace
beyond His/Her own north v south,
west revolving east

Courtesy climate change

I would never wish to exchange
unseasonable temperature
way out of range
far to balmy, undoubtedly

Once thermometer readings rise

Earth way out of balance,

At times feeling as a eunuch who was unable to change anything,
In zenith of toxicity as miasma on a cold misty morning.

Ever Wonder
Does your mind ever
branch out onto imagination 
Or are you anchored
to someone else's
Can you describe
being alive
without using 
Life shouldn't
be allowed to dismantle
our dreams so easily
We should be able to
close our eyes
and birth trees
where skies hold our roots
and heaven gleans...Read More

Incredible Scribbles From An Indelible Pen
Assailed and held prisoner in my bedroom, I fret
Wondering why mad blood seized my head
Inserting an undue threat
Concealed in the seal of the thread

Running through a bevy of thoughts
Silly at best, folly at worst
Waltzing in my bliss boats in tail...Read More

The Shape of Clouds
I’m sitting here, a place that
could be anywhere, and
moments linger, then slip by,
since time requires a past
to form the gift of now.

The future’s a reforming realm
towards which our nows must
daily race, for the sum of 
moments must not supplant our
destinies,...Read More

Mixed Culture Stream
The impetuosity of inanities
Life spills, deals and fills
In tones and zones of vanities
Raised to a crescendo on hills and bills

On the beleaguered bottom
Society sinks into new perspectives
Derived from the atom
Devoid of subjective directives

Issued at the behest of power corridors
In lumps...Read More

Grace Shuffle Haunted

Premium Member Something Real
You run a gauntlet of phoney feelings
fleeing callous and shallow relations.
And yet you’re willing to suffer heartaches
for love offers unrivaled temptations.

Your anguish hasn’t disillusioned you
for though it’s devastating it won't stay.
And time ultimately will change your mood
soliciting smiles as tears...Read More

Premium Member Set Things Right
Betrayal devastates your heart
although he swears he's not at fault.
And when the truth refutes his lies
your future plans grind to a halt.

Anger and sorrow supplant love
cutting the bonds trust created.
And replaced with indifference
 hope dies as you get frustrated.

Dolce Far Niente
The thing I must do’s just the thing I can’t.
It’s my artistic nature, I suppose.
Impatient, volatile and – heaven knows –
disposed to overthrow, subvert, supplant,
less drawn to things that are than those that aren’t.
A deft, exquisite ode trumps plodding prose;

The Fifth Season
Can memory destroy vision,
  if the tables turn

Can time surpass insight,
  as its distance churns

Can faith supplant reason,
  from its place on high

Can love be the fifth season,
—and our final goodbye

Creeping, crawling the time is calling,
night has come and the dark is falling.
Slinking, slithering the twilight moves,
as the squirming creatures hit their grooves.
Beneath the leaves the beetles advance,
while the worms break free to join the dance.
Their bodies swaying to and...Read More
