Apocalypse
Nothing shall save you from the flames. Sizzling, you’ll flee to and fro,
Remorseful of your former greed which bought you that rue and woe.
Your faiths and sciences, arts, or crafts shall not avail. You’ll excrete
All your past joys. Alas, too...Read More

don't fall in love
don't fall in love 

Loving him in a romantic way
From a one way street till endless highways 
Till he signaled no entry sign
I was a fool or maybe the luckiest of all
For some people,
That happens once in a lifetime
Or
For others,

A Sad Requiem On Old Age And An Unfulfilled Love

I have swam within idle rivers, slept by glassy lakes
repugnant morbid thoughts brought icy shivers, sin its due
rising to grab winter's hard frozen breath, gave all it takes

Today is a yellow day
everything is so blaze’
I’m sure to have my way
If I don’t have much to say.

We snip, we snarl then
it’s makeup time.
The next few moments 
are so sublime.

The trees fly by stately
in their own way.

Love Letter From The Soul LIX
Chapters,

Dogeared and tired 
put down for another day
another time when chapters spin
and life begins to unwind

what leads the pages to unfold
before these very eyes
where have they been before

the creases are my Braille
as I never fail to see
my way

In pieces
In pieces


The debris of my shattered soul,
Is all that remains of the old me I used to know.
I, the ghost, who haunts my life of cold,
Just sits here shivering…lost without a hope.


Broken by love a thousand times.
Crippled permanently by all...Read More

My internal experience of depression
today shames
external ecology of elation,
all I might know as warm extended family
of profoundly peaceful impressions
still bare surviving
at end of this slow-fading thread.

This morning

speaks of blaming left-hemisphere dominant GodVoices:

but by...Read More

Premium Member Happiness is like a golden shawl
The pebbled beach  on which we walked at dawn
The sun was dancing  singing  stone to stone
The sea was pale as silk and gently ran
The tide was coming in, the day began

Why is my memory so deficient here?

Whether the Good Lord or Charles Darwin gave Adam his fruit

Regardless of ideology versus faith rules our common pursuit


We need to accept that life is dangerous and fraught with peril

Don’t jump the gun before facing the reaper or his rifle...Read More

Premium Member WHERE HAVE ALL THE HIPPIES GONE
I grew up a child of the ’60’s
together my life and the hippie movement dawned…
now when I look back at that time I wonder…where have all the hippies gone?

Those long haired tie-dyed idealists who walked around with our feet bare

You will only end up in a bust 
You see you proclaimed yourself as a King 
In a place where they did not want to hear such a thing 
Defending from armies they did have

Laughter
Does a bad day at work or school make you stressed?
Does watching the news make you feel depressed?
Just like you, the answer is, "Yes":
Here's a solution when you're in distress.
I recommend laughter--it's totally free:
You'll get it from jokes or watching...Read More

Was This The Plan
I looked out my window today
And I stared into the sky
I said God what happened
Mankind has gone crazy, why

Our own Government fails us
They can't get past their greed
They let our homeless live on streets
As they debate legalizing weed

I know I...Read More

GOING AFTER GOLD

A hundred years ago or so, the story has been told,
A fever swept across the land of going after gold.
It seemed each person caught the urge, and they just could not rest,
The cry came through the camps and...Read More

A chance of a lifetime
Today I hoped to achieve something great,
Something many would consider a heroic trait,
Giving plasma to those in need,
With the hope that the doctor's treatments would succeed.

Taking me back after a two hour wait,
I realized there were some things which they...Read More

The Tree That Kept Me Alive

See it standing there thinking about me all night
It is shooting up in the air with no limit to bear
It’s standing tall and strong with something for everyone.

Today I was walking barefooted, 
After a heavy thunderstorm had passed thru,
I was wearing a beautiful white cotton dress. 

I suddenly stumbled upon a puddle,
A beautiful muddy puddle, I was instantly
drawn to its diameter and mysterious depths.

Take a look inside my little friend,
I hope you find what you seek.

I peek into the sunshine
Hold onto warmth

Move forward to find

A comforting touch
Happiness with a light heart

Once Upon a Time

“Once upon a time”

Used to start our stories?

So dirty, so vile 
He’s managed to steal from us all

The Old Woman
There stood a poor old woman
At his door 
With a bowl in hand, 
She begged for food.
He gave her rice
And some lintels to eat,
She will not go hungry today,
He thought.

What about the morrows next,
If she had nothing to eat
She would...Read More

Missing Group
Being pulled from all sides in different directions,
with force so strong that can move a mountain.
These are ropes made of ego,masked with righteousness,
scented with entitlement and pride.
confused,worried,a little lamb,running and searching for haven.
Saw all the beautiful and colourful things,and ran...Read More
