Be Not Afraid Our Time Will Come

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ I witness many dead and dying trees with neither leaf nor bud in late May. What will happen when they finally fall as part of nature’s endless circle of life? Who will their carcasses feed, who ours? Yet, be not afraid our time will come. It’s the way […]

Simply Walk Away

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ I wonder how we’re always so damn busy Now when we no longer work every day. Calls without ending, with doctors, friends and, most of all, telemarketers and scams. No warranties to extend now, in the future. We are current with all of our bills as well. The […]

Isn’t That Odd

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ How then may I write? How can I stop, here for this time, now and none other? To sharpen my razor on a broken strop, all deep enough in drek we’ll smother. People who lead lie, serve their agenda, believe in their scriptures, not their god. No choice, […]

The Greatest Teachers

Though some would say this of multiple kinds. Yet art, its movements appear in response To world events, are often ahead of the curve. […]

Who I am Today?

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ I don’t know what I’ll write. And I don’t know who I’ll be. Will it be right for a bee? Words and sounds so heavy And so playful, depending… Words can play and words can dance. They plan. They sing and argue. At times, they wound. At times, […]

If You Please

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Open the passenger door, put away your keys. Get in and realize inside’s kitchen-oven warm. You can roll down the windows, if you please. Think it won’t be long enough to buy the farm. As you wait for the driver, sweat drips down. You feel you are melting […]
