Katherine - KH
Katherine said, but her actions betrayed…
Was beauty the means of her wedded dismay?
Or was plainness her reason to be mistress?
Women! Rise beyond what's always been professed!

Premium Member Unwise Men - KH
Men
may choose
partners
for their looks,
as "trophy wives";
few would choose "plain Janes" to marry:
ironically, this may turn out their loss,
for, as our Miss Hepburn says, "Plain women know more about men than beautiful ones do."

Before The Gates Of Alahsar - Version - 2 - 17
Out of the golden gates,
there rode mounted knights of the king's guard,
To the left flank and the right flank they formed ranks,
the infantry as the centre,
The infantry still forming, shining no more were they,
midnight sun was being cloaked by darkness,

Premium Member Two women, two friends
So much respect
So much, so clear to see.
A surprise that made a day perfect
A surprise that was a joy to see.

An embrace. 
Two friends in time did meet.
Years fly by. 
Lives play out their games on different 
fields

In the cold, rain and heat, among the bustle, there she would be
Women would come and women would go, but there she just prayed
A daily continuous flow, as on this woman's...Read More

Blood Clot and Boycott

Rather than crossing lines and boycott,
We did have a drink  called blood clot,
And then hardened;
From jail pardoned;
After we would finish it, hit the spot.

EarthMother's unwilling Emissary
asked each faith community
and patriotic party
what they thought and felt
about God's preferential option for the poor,
despised,
criminal,
homeless,
wounded and powerless women and children,
physical disabilities,
sick,
terrified,
rabid with anger and fear,
enslaved,
addicted,
insane.

Premium Member Are these my Best Words
I look at my words.
Are you the best?
Not yet.
But soon.
They begin square dancing in my brain.
Twirling and laughing.
Their skirts flaring out.
Grabbed up by their partners.
Swung in the air.
I see panties and I laugh.
Reminds me of simpler times
When old women danced...Read More

What must I do
For the last time they all wanted to meet
him to share their thoughts, feelings; he heard them
patiently and bid good-bye to each.
Asked them to leave, as he desired to stay lone;
They left except two associates with tears for their beloved.

Men and Women: Getting to know each other KH
Different we are
Blondes are mistaken

Some men like bimbos
Women are feisty
Men also like feisty
Women with spunk
But in the end
Men and women like

Dog vs man.

You after work.
A dog is always waiting for you
At the door.
A dog is always waiting to give you a kiss.

Purple Heart
Purple Heart

It's what freedom cost,
Yet another family's lost.

Traces of a long forgotten war,
Willing participants to their own accord.

A coffin's flag to a son who gave his life,
So unafraid to die for the right.

Unspoken words echoes in silent action,
A sympathy for...Read More

He Is My Man - KH
He's only a man
I am a patient woman;
With no more emotional pain
If I want your heart to gain;
I love you for tomorrow
And leave you without sorrow;
I give you only love and bliss
I also seduce you with a French kiss.

We watch as the men wreck the planet.
Why can't we just tell them to can it?
Earth would be so cool

Shine on most brilliantly my bold, brave lass
Whine no more over misgiving's past
White robe awaits after crucible's blast.

A pro-life poem
Not all women all victims of assault.
Some couples have moment of weakness, and are at fault.
Abortion is something worse than cruel.
To God all life, is a precious jewel.
No doubt, nor exception, all life beings at the moment of conception.
