Canvassing

Canvassing ~~~~~ Many think we come into the world tabula rasa. I believe slate is not blank, it is a white canvas. White looks quite stark, contains all the colors, Throughout life, we scrape off some, add others. Painted canvas, like puzzle pieces, fill in life’s tale; No matter where we start or end, it’s […]

Lies and Truth

Lies and Truth ~~~~~ What ways We wander, Wonder why, Search, seek Twisted trails, Tall tales, Following fools, Meaning morsels, Broken breadcrumbs, Mired meanders, Wide walkways, Paved pathways, Rural roads, Long lanes, Dusty drives, Graveled grades Sleek superhighways, Cacophonous cities, Electronic expressways, Digital dead-ends. Exploring escape Though terrified, Buffaloed by Trying times, Failing physiques, Alliterative […]

Would one remain, tell our wasted chance here, […]

Star Stuff

Star Stuff ~~~~~ Just when I think I might comprehend it at all, The bright sunlight dazzles my eyes, The moon’s glow befuddles my brain, Reminds me I’m but a stellar child, oh so small ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment and let […]

The River Flows

The River Flows ~~~~~ Watching the river flow, Standing on the bridge In the shank of night. A half-forgotten moon Casting the only light. Yet, as the moon merges With distant mountains, The stars above blaze, Full of moments, stories. Not only our myths, Legends we would guard, But myths and legends Of distant civilizations. […]
