New Poems

Guess now I told someone
How dare you.
I was six.
Not even close to being seven.
I wasn’t prepared for anything that you put me through.
I’m not even upset about it anymore,
Just surprised. 
Let me remind you,
I was six.
I can barely breathe thinking about it.
It’s as if...Read More

Could have uncoiled slowly,
The viper with the horned head,
Rudely venomous,
Hiding between mossed boulders
Lining the sunlit riverbank,
Then could be seen its marks,
Its subtle designs and caution,
Thought the nibbling mouse,
Taken by surprise,
About to die.

A Birthday in Place
Believe it or not, my birthday’s been great
Though not one I would have predicted,
Assuming that I would be down in the dumps
For being so virus-restricted.

My pre-sunrise walk was delightful because
The rain I’d expected held off
And no one I passed on...Read More

The Slide
The slide was slow.
He had quickly climbed
To the top
To survey his conquests.
His slide was genuine, though
Not without care and thrills,
And he was not surprised,
He did not win his world.
Like most dreams
His too collapsed;
He swore not to aim high

Release the shelter of bare feet,
     rhinestones on big toes sparkle.

Anticipating the rebirth of nature 
onto the fields I walked the other day
hoping to marvel the outburst of beauty.  

On my way, 
unexpectedly, Spring I met herself just passing by
very surprised I was indeed

Good Yankee Advice for Spring
Don’t be fooled by purple crocuses
or bright yellow daffodils – it’s an illusion.
They’ll be under a crust of snow by morning,
and the shovels you put away last month 
will have to be brought out and used again.

Spring is a magician...Read More

Premium Member Same Cloudy Reason
There once was a white cloud
That lived in the sky
Every 10 years it passed
Just blew in, and flew by.

Never dropped any rain
Never talked much less sighed
The craziest thing I saw… 
All I could say was my, my.

we are no more than a nasty virus to her.
She has sent us many warnings over the years
which mainly fell on deaf ears due to human greed

The response has been in our...Read More

Healing in Jesus Christ Our Lord
I once was a woman, who bled for twelve years.
Doctors tried to cure me, but left me in tears.
Unclean and forsaken, in bitter sorrow.
Wondering if I’d ever see my next morrow.

I heard of a Man of miraculous power.
Surely, He can...Read More

I twirled the blind side of my imagination
She landed in a bow but did not bow

causing thunderous applause

March came in like a lion
And never let up, not really

Fake promise during campaign..

While corruption is serve as their menu..
