In Passing Moments
A bit of metal and stone, 
lent form and substance by
an exploding sun. 
So long ago and far away,  it was
no larger than an apple seed. 

Eight billion years it wandered
and finally came to rest within
a comet, slowly orbiting...Read More

Premium Member Father of a nation
He is called the Father of a nation
Back in the country, where I was born.
He was a tremendous leader and orator
And one fine morning 
He was lying in the pool of blood
In his own house, gunned down.
I saw the...Read More

shattered legions on the beach of my heart

From my prison cell
Seated in a cell of this prison world
I watched the night sky
Through a window,
A tiny one
Sealed tight by metal bars
Seeming to tell me
That mightier they surely are
Mightier than me
Mightier than everything else!

The night sky is where freedom lies
The night sky...Read More

Premium Member Talk of the Town
Luther Vandross recorded a song
that says something like
"We had the best love around...
We were the talk of the town."

I can't think of the last time
a greatly famous and resilient love affair
was the talk of even TinselTown;
and certainly not New York,...

Juxtaposition III
Juxtaposition III

Her beauty is like the dawn of the day, 
Gentle and mild, pricking the strings of hay, 
In such melody that outweighs the hearts, 
Bewitching all mouths to move in her art. 
Even the sun grudge thy lofty beauty,...Read More

He had an urge to kill,
an evil need nurtured
by violent movies, video games
and predecessors in the evening news.

His desire gained power
with meditation and mental rehearsals.
He couldn't remember which day
he concluded he was defective,

But he knew the destination
of the dark path...Read More

Radiant crystalline
a lighter body 
you romanced the 
divine in my mind

Diamond snakeskin

rant impromptu
right from the start
you told me you
weren't going

to be but not

going to be
gone all

long now i

The clock ticks down the passing day
Tedious seconds count down my existence
Time for my pills ~ Time to call the nurse

Premium Member Things that Bug Me
Out of control children, out of patience parents,
People who feel entitled to not work, 
Bullying behaviors, racism, and ageism

Misogynist dictators, fervent followers who do not know why they follow,
People who are not held accountable for their bad manners,
Cigarette smoke in...Read More

Premium Member Grown Up Babies Playing Video Games
So used to action
Everything fast paced
Instant gratification
Worlds away from reality

First job, too boring
Find out they have to take orders? 
No way!

Lots of cleaning. What is the point? 
Annoyed at the slow pace, the tedious repetitiveness.
Become irritated, quit. 
Thinking someone else...Read More

Mesmerized by the sound

Wild goose chase
Pursuit for elusive prey
teases yours truly
into treacherous catacombs
dangerous mentally
challenging pitfalls,

sets small hairs of back
on camp creeks edge
of night, where dark shadows
evoke outer limits
of twilight zone

prompting me constantly questioning
purposefulness, qua hair raising pursuit
embarking these modern roman times
all for naught,
nonetheless I chide...Read More
