To an Unsung Future

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Let me write your name upon the sky So that everyone may remember you. Let me write your name upon the salt So you may season all our daily fare. Fair winds blow, whisper your name Softly into the ears of infant children. Where animals meet in their […]

We Are Not Quick

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ When did I lose the songs of the mother earth? Or were they buried beneath noise long before? Before my birth, this birth, though perhaps There was a time when I and all could hear them. Maybe only one could not hear and determined that if he could […]

What We Think We Held

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ It took nearly as long for sunlight to reach your eye As it did for George Floyd to be murdered and die. Even these words you read are already in the past, although it may be, a mere nanosecond has passed. Still, a year ago or five minutes […]

Once Upon a Life

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Part One Once upon a single life nearly fifty years ago I sat upon a brick wall in Palo Alto feeling low. Without money a place to stay, listening to an unknown  rock band in Litton Plaza, I heard A dulcet voice  offering me hello. Who knew such […]

The Eternal Mystery of Phileas, the Lesser: I Must Admit

Stark, bare limbs filter the weakened Sunlight, all that my […]

More Not Than There

People Over Politics, Survival Over Surrender, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ I want to write, paint, design something profound. Still, I’d also like recognition even a little money. Although neither matters much in the cosmic view, Be neither forgotten nor remembered in nova blast. So how do I deal with life now, greeting mortality, Eventual ending […]

All Together

People Over Politics, Survival Over Surrender, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ I have shown you wonders beyond imagination, revealed to you the smallest parts of my being. I find you within me, yet; you do not understand languages too, of creation too gross and too subtle to speak to you. I will guide a minor poet’s […]

Hidden Not Gone

People Over Politics, Survival Over Surrender, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ May the New Year Bring us a Safer, Happier, Healthier, and Kinder World And Thank You for Bringing Me into Your Lives. ~~~~~ Could it be I finally understand, even with my limited perception, that I am but briefly in the band, no matter my […]

Time We Must Wait

People Over Politics, Survival Over Surrender, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Light all the candles. Speak the ritual words. From the past, from the future. Do they now have meaning? Did they ever? Do you believe they will be heard?  If they are heard, will it matter? Another ritual, lost. Come and gone, yet to be. […]

A ‘70s Lament and a Moral

~~~~~   Hearing the music of a long forgotten song, A classic, yet we don’t remember its name. It’s not always even what we would choose. Life is its own agenda, some win, some lose. Reminds us, can’t see what tomorrow brings. How any moment might be paupers or kings. What I would say, choose […]
