Sing to Me Sweetly

~~~~~ Sing to me sweetly. I would know your song. Let it infuse my marrow, join my half heart. I shall be carried on the lift and lilt of music, until I realize I’ve known your tune all along. More, that you have known my tune as well, words conveying wonders I hope all witness. […]

If They Can

~~~~~ The children flit from shadow to shadow. Hidden then exposed then hidden again. What’s the danger? It is no longer a game. Explosion heard nearby, as our seas rise. Weapons drumming staccato, as air burns Earth is barren. Nothing will grow hence. Grenades and mortar rounds launch even in a late, glorious smog enhanced […]

At Last

~~~~~ There is infinite time in space. There is infinite space in time. Whatever you think you feel, may not, in any way, be real. What does it matter if nothing has sense, if this is pretense? Change the present, not past. Can we begin change at last? ~~~~~ People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! […]

I Sit by the Side of the Trail

~~~~~ Fighting for breath but out in nature. Dardanelles trail, which locals will know. Walking here. Sometimes trees, sometimes no. I watch grasses wave in the wind. Seeds and pods still clinging. Trees sway more gently, Ones I see. Other walkers come up the trail. I wonder will they say hi to me? One said […]

To Fight as Friends and Lovers

~~~~~ To Fight as Friends and Lovers Will life give us laughter or tears Like some presents, where we smile weakly, all the while thinking WTF. Do we choose what we receive or whatever paths we decide to take? Despite the straightness, strangeness of the road we travel  now, we’ll Walk every other path, reap […]

Thoughts About Winning

~~~~~ Everyone I know likes to win, games, contests, lotteries or almost anything. Winning makes us believe the universe or the (G)god or gods we believe in have noticed us. More, not only have they noticed us, they approve. I’ve never quite grasped the concept that some supreme being, responsible for the entire universe, spared […]

Once More, With Feeling

~~~~~ What do we anticipate tomorrow holds? If filled with hope or harsh trepidation, it will not be tomorrow when it comes. What we thought, or not, infinite variations. ~~~~~ People Over Politics, World Over Wealth!

Never About

~~~~~ It was never about what I lost nor about what I might gain. It was my life’s foolish cost. All the wishes wished in vain. ~~~~~ People Over Politics, World Over Wealth!
