Ashes to ashes, dust to dust…
How many times have we heard this?
on TV, in a play, in a movie… 
Have you ever read it in the bible? 
The very book of life!
He that made all things,

Deplorable. 
That is what I am. 
That is okay with me. 
I work hard, 
Have a family. 
I support my wife, 
and my own kids. 
I even adopted a couple…

I am made to pay.

The hospital is a cold and sterile place. 
It is not meant to be…
warm or nice. 
It is meant to be a building…
set aside; 
to let life win and death, 
have no chance at all.

Today is the first day, 
The rest will all just follow, 
and sometimes get in the way. 
There will be good times, 
bad times, 
out of work, 
of out of money, 
and even dreadful mistakes. 
The kind, 
that can...Read More

Halfway to heaven, 
so thrilled to be saved.
My life, 
changed forever.
Filled with your spirit,
wrestles to serve. 

On fire…
in the night,
running through the streets, 
until I fall… before You.

Dancing for My Lord, 
To a music that has always been,...Read More

Ever wondered how it happens?
How the last person stays, 
How they make sure, everyone else gets out?

Ever wonder why?
Is that important? 
As long as we are safe, 
does it really matter who sacrificed;
or more specifically or…
even more importantly what...Read More

A mark on the door…

It is so quiet here, 
I believe that I can hear a snake, 
meandering across the dirt road, 
along the backside of the west fence. 
Usually he takes his time, 
but tonight,

My voice is quiet. 
I have little to say. 
I am listening instead…

I can hear birds. 
Not a couple, but many.
They are all around. 
They are happy.
They are busy.

The wind…
rustling through, the trees.
I can feel, 
the heartbeat…
of my home....Read More

Hand of God
Just like Isaiah was sent forth,
So too Did Sylvia Browne, Up North;
Sent to Preach to both gentiles and jews alike
And in “End Of Days” she wrote her spike.

Gloated over and called , Mad,
Mocked and jeered by many a lad,
And just...Read More

Locked In

The walls all around, 
are not what is doing me under. 
It is not the lack of air, 
food or needed sustenance…
It is not the distance, 
between the front gate…
and the back. 
It is not the water, 
which tastes...Read More

I am not afraid.
The list is very long, 
of positives and good things. 
There is no reason to fear.
That is the number one reason, 
not too. 
It is a waste of time,

that would bring us...Read More

Every day is, the same...
and not. 
I long to go to work. 
I have lost my mind?
What a crazy statement.

I am sitting...
waiting and thinking. 
Really going crazy, 
slowly insane. 
I am at home, 
trapped. (by discretion)

My guy is in the building.

This is a time to look out,

First to see around all the edges, 
and then back into the mirror. 
 
Time also has windows.

It is a very small demon. 
It is a tiny monster,

anything it can get. 

It is the one that hides, 
and comes home with you. 
It hops on while you are;
at the market, the post...Read More

The daughter 
is not 
The mother 

Sylvia’s bees were
left milk, bread and butter

Plath by name
but not 
the daughter’s path

in evolving nature
not the mother
nor the father

Love for art’s sake
Art not for Love’s sake

Oh uplift me woman
if we were to have a 
conversation would 
bees fly out of your mouth
or just mewling, simpering 
watered-down honey
not so pristine, just soft
and somewhat 
ingratiatingly tainted
you ply uplifting
romantic notions
like an air raid

Chocolate cake,

The camels are swimming, 
and who knew...
they knew how?
What a surprise...
to all that stood by, 
watching them cross the desert, 
like ducks on a pond. 

Careful and fearful,

What is that noise?
I have heard it before?
In the ramblings...

but dead still. 
I rush.

We are not all equal. 
Some can dance on a wire...
above the crowd, 
Some can swim...
all the way to China. 
While others,
make food that feeds...
many every day, 
or take the hearts...
from some, 
to place in others.

Did you see?
Did you look?
What do think?
They are so…   …   ?

Words heard directly, 
indirectly or by accident, 
but never by intent. 
Not things you would say…
to anyone’s face,
especially theirs.
No! 
 
Not things you would sing.

I can not think straight. 
I have been blindsided by a moving truck,
