Balancing Act

~~~~~ Where is the light we keep in the window That guides each of us all the way home? What time we ponder wait and wonder; Will our answers ever remain unknown? How can the illness and greed of the few Control the course all our lives will take? With the time now to think […]

Even When We Don’t

~~~~~ As always, in the middle of the night, Some things will be wrong, some right. It’s not even always what you choose. Life has its own agenda, win or lose. No one knows what tomorrow brings, Our next now, may be paupers, kings. Still, we must always live in this now. Do it, even […]

Dive Into the Sky

~~~~~ Do you buy self-help books by ones, twos Or do you buy them by the bloody dozens? Stop halfway through, dejected, confused, Yet sing their praises, to friends or cousins. Do you read the advice, but don’t follow it And then you wonder why it doesn’t work? You sought tools to scramble from your […]

Whorled Enough and Time

~~~~~ How many names will not be remembered? What numberless stories will never get told? Life on the Earth, with no guaranteed word; No one may remember, when you grow old. Is this any way important, when we’re loved? Mothers, fathers, family and friends abound. To chosen families, we are fitted and gloved. With a […]


~~~~~ Death frightens us Because we’re told It should frighten us, Because we do not Know what is next. Yet, that is the same Description we have Of our life and living. We will never, ever Know what is next. VOTE, November 3, 2020! ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy […]

What’s the Sequestion?

~~~~~ Why do we do the things we do, Pushing on through our pain? Why do we do it, when we know One option is to not walk again? I don’t think my pain leads to that; Yet, past fields, up hills we climbed. Still, I didn’t fall on my face, splat, A small grace, […]

Soon Remember

~~~~~ Soon, we will return home, again, With nothing but time to spend. We dream of places to roam, then Watch the tube, read a book, pretend. Though how we’ve lived until now, Makes us feel guilty for shirking. Want to produce; we don’t know how. Remember, what we did wasn’t working VOTE, November 3, […]

Be Prepared

~~~~~ Prepare to hide your children. We are being invaded. Can far behind? How can we be invaded? The troops belong to us. Have you started to worry? When will the teargas And the flashbangs change Into nerve gas and grenades Prepare to shelter your elders If they have not fallen To a virus […]

Answer to an Unasked Question

~~~~~ Passionate Pacific my daily inspiration, sunlight, sand and surf. Murmured messages wash on shore, chased by crashing waves. Warm strand, moonlit, twinkling on the swells, reflecting earth, Wind, water, weather form transient art, the sea gives and takes. Humbled by such vastness of ocean, rolling beyond the horizon, This and more besides to stir […]

No Guarantee

~~~~~ Blow it up or blow it down, No point us hanging around. We start again as a beginner If we lived as saint or sinner. Still and all, it’s been before; Not by us, so now our chore. Some craven but some brave, Dumb, brazen sum’s a grave. What it is, not bad nor […]
