We've experienced pandemics before
but the COVID-19 virus is new.
This coronavirus we can't ignore
so self-quarantine, we're told we need to,
it’s not safe to socialize anymore.

The whole world abruptly ground to a halt
as airlines and cruise ships swiftly shut down.
And although China...Read More

I'm old fashioned
I'm an old fashioned fellow
In a newfangled world,
A square peg in a very round hole.
Gone's the world I grew up in,
This one's in a tailspin
And spiraling out of control.
Sometimes it's hard to keep up
As the world rushes by,
And technology isn't...Read More

Opposing forces center on the beam
Of its own tailspin flowing
As gravity prevails

As the rose's petals fall loosely down
Playing with the wind's coat tails

Only eyes that see its sway
Gains the truth of...Read More

A crusty goblin cracked a crevassed grin
While chasing odd witches in a tailspin

Whereupon her broom she sat
To kill all the rats in his crusty den...Read More

A Scatterbrain's Guide To The Five Stages of Grief
There are five stages of grief my Shrink told me.
I did them out of order, thanks to my chronic ADD.

Moving My Heart Forward
I've always been stuck in reverse
Good could not outweigh the worse
Each step ahead turned into
A day filled with more than two
Backwards steps I couldn't win 
I was in a tailspin
The despair I felt just grew
Till the day my heart met...Read More

When the up-tempo “Beer Barrel Polka” began
I grabbed sweet John’s arm, curtsied to my man

The Polish side of my family hit the floor
While my new groom wished he could slip out the back door

There was only one dance I’d...Read More

Tomorrow never came
Tomorrow we agreed—at our special place
Where we always had—our special dates.
The blooming park with spring in swing
Bring out the larks—making them sing.

On a wrought iron bench—waiting,
Fumbling a box that held a bond.
How to ask—will you respond?
I kept calm waiting by...Read More

Nothing For The Pain

Your words hurt like the kiss of a bee sting,
covering my face with a blanket of tears
Said I wasn’t man enough to be your king,

The Apparition at Shaggala
A tweet in time prompted nine
And looking up, I spotted you
Essence of elegance
Glamorously gorgeous, and being inspired
I sat down to write
Watched as streaks of mental energy 
Turned to strokes on the canvas in my head
I see the world in pictures...Read More

A categorization is neither a cat clapping nor a centimeter of cubic cakes
A slipper stained in a knot is appearing to emulate a wanton soup. Wanton soup is grinning a beaming smile. Whirling around. Nine noodles nimbly nick niceties. And the prawn dance begins as they fling themselves out of the rice...Read More

My faith
As the planet spins, my journey begins
Filled with chagrin, I struggle not to sin 
My thick skin, is trapping my soul within
This internal tailspin, wearing me thin
But I will lift my chin, and hold a grin
If God I trust in,...Read More

Acrostic on Sanmati My Jewel
So precious, so dear, so exquisite grin
All of us could have is Sanmati jinn.
Notable for her academic success in 
Many spheres of schooling life she win
Almighty’s blessings – parents too – akin.
Talking debauched of her is for me like sin.

Communication Is The Key
Travelling down a lonely road 
With no one to confide in, 
Turned their backs on one another 
Their relationship thrown into a tailspin.

They used to share their feelings, 
But now that dusty road is...Read More

	 many things,
Never being fulfilled with
 what life brings.
