The Cynic on Prayer and Longevity

The cause of all longevity insists
my atheist gerontologist
is the science we now call Genetics, 
with its amazing double helix
and which is transmitted by sex
which grateful humans prefer next
to any other pleasurable method
and to which they are indebted.
The evidence therefore is...Read More

Ode To Survival

As I sit here in this still cemetery facing nomadic west,
Under these ancient oaks with deep green leaves descending,
I see the ghostly dead before me rising up as star zephyrs,
The men and women that once spoke a multitude...Read More

From Wisdom Born, Decades Fighting Fate's Cursed Hand

In youth, a young lad roars for much needed applause
in old age, wisely remains silent with just cause,
seeing the end near, some shed bitterest of tears
thinking such splashing supplications, angels hear;
whereas this old,...Read More

Premium Member A Mary Grotto

She slips quietly into the semi-circle of the grotto,
reverently lights a votive candle.
A pretty girl, her form drags my eyes
away from the plaster virgin
into a carnal daydream.

She does the whole Catholic thing,
and every ritual gesture seems natural.
Rosary beads guide her...Read More

Would you forgive all despair 
Of darkness of your inner soul
And give me a piece of sky, 
To help me see through your lens?
Would you be one moment 
Of peaceful tranquility of the blue sky?
Where white clouds are embracing 
And...Read More

Praises are for my God, my Protector  and Provider
Saviour, Sanctifier, Sustainer by His grace-satisfaction
Ascertainer along truth's approval
Lover with His compassionate leadership
Mover of my faith maneuvered through His miracles.

Powerfully, the Lord propels my service-propped prayer
Settling surely redemption of my soul

Global Warming and Eskimos

With greenhouse gases heating the planet
and threatening to drown all life on it,
desperate eskimos are siezed with fear,
opting for expedients like scuba gear, 
water wings or any other kind of thing
that will keep them afloat without sinking;
but failing these, supplications...Read More

Strength in the Lord* of prayer-fellowship
Makes our supplications reach His throne as we seek Him in our worship
Let’s wait for His answers for our requests midst our stewardship 
As we praise and thank Him for His leadership in our partnership.

Prophet of my aspiration, prophet of my palette, blue,
Saw you in groups of traveling birds, flying all through.
Distant spots on a canvas of far-reaching clouds.

Premium Member John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Today, would never be elected!
He'd be run out of rooms.
How dare he ask us:
"Ask not what your country can 
do for you, ask what you can
do for your country."

I remember being so moved by
that statement.
But our country has taken a new

Hearken oh mother of light

Our flesh is from your soil, your sons

The Devil is in the Details
The Devil’s watch has started and the time is consummate
A strange and tranquil calmness mocks our terrifying wait
There, just beyond our window moves like fearsome reprobates
A pair of tortuous demons meant all Hell to perpetrate
We will not yield in panic!...Read More

“I love you from the bottom of my heart.”
Such you asserted in your notes with Cupid’s arrow...
…But now that you’ve known my heavenly priorities;
Would you still love me, ready for a fresh spiritual relationship?

“I love you with my brain’s hypothalamus.”
Prudently,...Read More

Pledge Drive
I'm ready for some music;
The radio's all set,
But begging me for money
Is all that I can get.

The pleading is relentless,
Yet does beseeching serve?
For constant supplications
Really get on my last nerve.

To turn off their entreaties,
Subtle as a striking sledge,
I simply switch...Read More

A Respectable Tree
The tree of my ritual was old and tall,
though not a true giant;
the next one may be, but needn't.
It possessed consequence in its bough
and the places around it,
which may have been occupied
for one of any number of reasons.
It was a...Read More

Yield not, but know
Ash - grey chemised
she shifts her shape
as silver flakes float coat
stripped naked places, 
sheath curves and angled spaces
Angry glitter tingle stings
thick earth skin with prickly flames
and rumble rise regurgitates
shimmy - shake shudders
in magma's deep thrombosis.

Her feather boa plume
tightens hot cloud...Read More

Echo of the ringing bells
Flying across the valley
Through the forest canopy
And rush in the misty sky 
To kiss the blue mountain range 
Entreaty move towards from the sanctum
Follow the twisting sound of bells 
And conceal the  
murmuring wishes of...Read More

Careful what you pray for
I reread the scriptures
Raised my hands to the same sky 
My body trembles once again 
Of fear that perhaps my supplications would go unheeded  
My eyes flood over with tears of remorse 
Of how I had knelt here before...Read More

Slave Quarters and Plastic Dollars

He, who would in utmost haste
Avail himself to a sumptuous fill
Of savory victuals of every taste
At your expense and to his thrill

And would in his claim, be a brother
But, at your fortune’s slightest downturn
Shared memories, erase without bother;

Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 33 -part 2-
The Prince grinned at my revelation,
He let go of my hands turning to the walls of the well
He heaved in a deep breath and laughed, 
Turning again to me,
With incredulous chuckles
“Ah, yes your God has played with the virgin before!
