Monet had his garden to paint,
Water lilies and a bridge so quaint

So many times he swiped his brush,
To capture the flowers and mistle thrush

Soothing pastels and budded greens,
So content, each day for him seemed

 Never tiring of his view,

Amidst reality’s kaleidoscopic might
My vision needs faith light
For color virtues-right
Admitting blurry sight…
To enjoy special child’s delight
Soaring with him in blissfulness-height.

I just want to be 
Involved in something romantically
With someone who wants to be
In this together with me
Oh I 
Want to be with a guy 
Who understands why 
Why he chose 
To be with me whoa

in whimsy
perfumes dance
calling out
for spring

uplifted souls
join forces
to wake nature
up to its feet

stars do align
the sun the wind
their might
spin this earth
till warm and
full of life

bells ring
it’s time 
for spring
to detonate
to sing 
put on its
annual parade

Premium Member Weathered Cracks

Weathered cracks in the stone
The seasons how they forge you so,
A barren place, yet still a home
For in your midst a flower grows.

What succuor dwells upon this wall
When round about the soil is sweet,
Yet there you cling, fearing no fall

Fractured bones of the clenched fist
A clenched fist rose in the air filled with chants and gun smoke
All across Africa we marched and our spirits never broke
The power of fingers clenched in a fist cracked walls of discrimination
Then oil unclenched the fingers and we started...Read More

Premium Member Fun Days With Dick and Jane
With a resourceful and older brother,
My early childhood was so much fun,
Such as being drawn in his red wagon,
And sledding in the late winter sun!

When I was just learning how to read,
I had to choose the only book I could,
And...Read More

Death knocks
 I’m stuck in the bog land of poetry
 Trying to make a small manuscript of thirty pages.
 I have reached 29 pages, but all seems so futile
Words I have written before keep cropping up
I can’t endlessly repeat myself.

Pickling with delight 
purge fruits of no blight
plus condiments right 
pepper, garlic white
pleasing appetite…

Pickled  relish
powerful dish
prods diet wish
propels weight-swish…

Pickles’ glow

Mine fervent aspiring political activism...

Gunning gusto, (while rosy axles grind)
for Bernie Sanders dagnabbit
nipped in figurative bud triggered zilch

late blooming spore port as 
schlocky, reedy, quirky, political neophyte,
whose aura, charisma, dogma

Country Church Nestled in the Wilderness

A country church nestled in a peaceful valley,
Against a glorious backdrop of tall mountains,
That were fashioned before Eden’s retched  malady,
That beset the human soul and rich surroundings.

Beautiful dog-wood trees with blossoms snowy white,
Bounded by rocks as old as the...Read More

I listen closely
for that little voice
the one inside my head
the one that’s sweet
that’s fun
and frivolous
there’s a little girl
dancing in my head
she’s fickle o so mischievous
she’s whimsical
and full of energy
always ready
and most willing
to come out
and play
each and every day

free at last
time weightless
a dream come true
miles from the city
its drama left behind
precious vacation now unfolding
crisp spry air
of cottage country
a secluded bubble
in communion with nature
feels surreal
such existential bliss
pure proximity to the divine

I've never seen a Bumblebee 
Lose a fight with a Snapdragon

Opens wide the dragon's mighty jaws
And deftly crawls inside
To steal the coveted prize
And defeat the mighty dragon

Now Think This: A Journey of Faith, Hope and Trust
As we walk the down
The path of life
We find some areas aren't
As well lit as others.
And it's within these sections
That our hope seems to fade
As we go through them.
Fears begin to surface
When we can't see
What's in front of us,
