~~~~~ Here they come, dancing down the lane. Joyful laughter ringing out loudly, until Mrs. Croft erupts from her door to glare. Those beady eyes silenced many before.

~~~~~ Counting time like the beating of my heart. I hear it pulsing within my ear each night, Head upon my pillow, other quiet times. What are my worries in the grand scheme, Space and creation? A tiny mouse squeaks Into god’s ear, infinitesimally tiny. Beggars Our imagination, comprehension. Oh, well. What else are we […]

~~~~~ Not all, but many gray heads Marvel at youth’s energy and Innocence, worn by cynicism. Now, the sun shines on youth, This moment of first flowering.

Disparity twixt drinking and drunk. Not distance twixt sinking and sunk When I look at the world,  I wonder. Hate […]

~~~~~ A work in progress by Philias the Lesser How lush the valley grows in Spring With green refulgent at every hand. Where flowers bloom and fruit ripens, While the bees and birds commune. The farms stand empty and forlorn. All the men and women walk the lane. They look both hungry and insane. What […]

~~~~~ Into my life rain will fall. Will I see it gray or beautiful? Might it mirror my feelings, Whether of despair or of hope? Rain will beat its own rhythms, With no thought for how I feel. If I learn its song, will it change? Will it only be my change, I see? Never […]

~~~~~ Are there meadows in Mongolia? Are there fields in far-off space? Do beings there look like we do? Are they an unrecognizable race? Will we manage to communicate? Will we see smiles truly universal? Can we believe we are still on top, Or learn each life but a rehearsal?. ~~~~~ People Over Politics, World […]
