Taller Scholar in a Parlor
Taller Scholar in a Parlor

Could always tell that he was a taller,
Student who had  become a scholar;
Did appall;
Know it all;
Presidential debate  will be in parlor.

Mission Control, this is Flight Z924693744, do you read?
We're having some technical trouble. How should we proceed?

We have spotted a planet, that appears to be suitable to abort;
But, to return to earth, we will need an alternate transport.

We ran the streets
not as thugs but as children
not old enough to be out there

He was taller than I,

He had boots which made me...Read More

Premium Member REMEMBERING THE BABIES
Remember when our children and grandchildren were babies?
How we were immediately taken with their charms?
How we could not wait to pick them up and hold them in our arms?

To them we must have looked like giants…

The one i loved
Sometimes I contemplate the possibility of my life changing forever.
Waking up one day to find I am a few pounds lighter, a few inches taller.

The Silent Pitch and Sportsmanship
It is not a conversation you overhear,
Like the questions rolling underfoot,
"Who goes there?".
You can see the grass has told
How tall to grow
To the chicory, dandelions and clover.
At the edge of the pitch
Where competition is stiff,
They grow bigger, taller and bolder;
Yet...Read More

FORTRESS
She was a fortress
Rock solid, determined
To stand strong 
Against any attack
But she turned the music up
While her king was in his counting house
It was far too loud
She danced on her walls
Flaunted herself, taunted
Received attention, even unwanted
Aware and unaware of her...Read More

Sins of a Father

While younger we were running, to what we did not know.
Quick to love, fast at play, a canvas white as snow.
But as we grew in knowledge and taller by the day

Where everything goes is beyond comprehension ;

The paths are infinite ,  but choices are not

Fresh Memory Again
Thinking of dew in the mornings
Something cool with the rising African sun
In the shaded places by cliff overhangs and taller trees
The blades of grass, so many leaves, are bathing
And swimming with joy ...
And the sun comes with towels, as it...Read More

The Orchard Of Opportunity.

Strolling through the orchard of opportunity
Making choices as they come along
Trying to pick the best healthy fruit
But many a time I get it wrong
Picking the rotten ones riddled with maggots
Another blow to heart and mind

Our family visited but they’re gone now…the house is empty

Friends in the distance, 
we laugh from afar. 
You are on the other side,

heart telling tales
that get a dog's tail

that grew up or were forced 
to grow up on the shady side of
town not meaning out of the sun

What is expected
from perfection?
Do your best,
and none can find fault. 
The level of your challenge, 
needs to be higher,
than your attainable goal. 

Help others rise with you, 
and the water boils hot. 
The steam brings newness…
washed clean, 
what was once

How I Looked on You

I could even claim- a necessity
But you gave me away at such low cost 
And now I am sitting here in designer lip gloss

These pumped, red heels won’t make me taller
On the contrary, I am becoming...Read More

Of heaven on the water I wish to sing, it is a funny thing. 
A small boat and sail, the size of a tiny whale.

She is very slender and her eyes are brown.
Her hair is lovely, long and dark.
Sometimes she wears colors in her hair or paints her nails.
