Premium Member 7 More Wonders of this World
Imagine life without touch, O we would miss so much.
Visualize no taste, so many joys we'd waste.
Without the ability to see, how sad would this be.
These are some amazing gifts, bestowed on you and me.

I'm forever grateful, for the endowment...Read More

Indulgence
Chocolate, 
it's been a rocky road
deliciously swirled 
in mouth
a delectable treat
quickly melting within the heat 

a bite teased, aimed to please
more than sex appealed
WHIPPED creamed 
caramel covered 

BANANAS

shimmering glass beads
spooned and licked clean
in the moonlight
a midnight dance
cumulating into the kitchen

REMINISCING ON A CHILDHOOD

I have never once considered myself, unlucky, in anyway
I’m still very grateful for what I have had back in the day

My baby is shy
It pains me to know that my baby is shy
Afraid to speak up, she lets her tears dry
I’ve been that little girl, mild and meek
Offended, abused, but dare not speak

I grew up ashamed, to be anything less
Or anything more than...Read More

Premium Member Democracy On Fire
In "On Fire"
Naomi Klein reminds us
win/lose capitalism invites a collective action vacuum
and abhors restrictions on money-accumulating freedom,

But Earth,
a healthy global climate,
healthy ecosystems
invite regenerative win/win climax
of cooperatively nurturing health systems
and abhor inhumane definitions of "wealth"
as privately-held and autonomously sequestered currency
energy
natural resources

A moment in the life of a volunteer firefighter
As I am sitting quietly, with my family
Watching TV and enjoying the night 
Then comes the tones from my radio
Signaling something is not all right

Not knowing what the call may bring
My heart rate begins to rise
It could be a house...Read More

Filled Up to the Core
I feel empty inside
Don't know exactly why
I just want to hide
Somehow close my eyes and die

Somehow let go and die
I wonder to myself, why?
I feel like a worthless fly
I just feel the need to cry

Sweet, yet bitter and harsh as...Read More

Among persons known within mine barbed ken
Analogous to black box
holding untold secrets,
I share the following self
introspection with ye,
which purported hidden truths
might set me free,
albeit laborious effort

to loose constituent amalgamated
compound elements unmined
tantamount to agony
riddling psyche effort to extract
thorny matters incumbent upon me
versus tapping Androcles and the lion

The Boat Rocks
Nothing more defended
than the status quo

To protect and covet,
never let go

Attacked by outsiders,
heels to dig in

Rocking the boat

Premium Member Across The Sky
I was walking barefoot along the beach.
It was a sundrenched beautiful day.
A Seagull overhead, almost within reach.
Then it quickly turned and flew away.

A gust of wind caught my spirit and let it fly.
It began to soar upon gossamer wings.
It felt...Read More

Reflections
When I saw you today, I sensed your deep despair.
You’ve existed so long, in a world without care.
Your hair was a mess, your clothing all torn.
you frantically hid, when the light upon you shone.
You ran from me, fought with me...Read More

The Sock
Just for fun...

The Sock


Is there anything lonelier than discarded clothing?
A sign of disappointment, of rejection, of loathing
Threadbare and stained, no fight left within
Wondering what events caused this great sin
Did you wear out your welcome, what did you do?
Was it a...Read More

Hawaii, Where The Meek Is Obsolete


When within a unicameral state,
Where there is no reasonable debate,
Whether you vote all yea,
Whether you vote all nay,
Why ask if a communist-styled dictate?

"Conversations with a Daughter: Creeps"



Time creeps
my beautiful, clever, daughter 

Weirdos are us

they keep you on 
the outer edge

In the quiet calm of night

A Warrior's Fight
It's been said that
God gives his hardest battles
To his strongest soldiers.
Those who endure
The seemingly impossible
And unimaginable
Continue to faithfully fight
To the bitter end.
A warrior's valor tested
Time and time again
Ends in the same result.
Like an eternal flame
The fighter within them remains

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,
Questions of...Read More

There Is Freedom Within And Freedom Without
Though you may be poor,
There is no freedom without cash,
Worked hard for the dollar,
Until I hit the floor,
The poor has gift of time.
The rich in cash has no woe of money,
where there is no lack.
Not where the green dog can...Read More

Sustaining your wellbeing
Is the happiness within you
Silence, say no more

To be smooth sailing

Do not expect the audiences
To understand who you are
To be yourself is...Read More

I am poetically pickled pink; my muse is finally full of ink,
Thanks to Nina I’m back in sync, within a quick blinkity blink…

A pickledly positive plus, satisfying my dormant distant discuss…
