Sarabande for Missing Magic, Redux

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Missing magic, miracles all vanished, hidden from everyone. From vast spaces gone. Into unseen minuscule interstices, between atoms disappeared. Despite clues, maps and legends, whispered rumors, whereabouts remained unknown Some mounted quests. Heroes came forth. Solo adventurers, robber’s trusts, fellowships. All trekked far, endured miles uncounted. Summits scaled, […]

Love is All

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Ancient before time, impenetrable void waited. Crawled from its atomic shell; instantaneous illumination flared. Newborn this moment. A swirling figure moves, is every moment. Innocently wise, hopeful, in constant conflict. Cooperation in every interchange. Full of wonder, every and all stories. Worth living for, growing, expansive. Worth dying […]

I Hope

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Early AM writing once again, again. The words come when they choose. Though I make these marks on paper Regardless of whether I am inspired. Still, weather or a sound or the view May send phrases tumbling through. My head, till I hope I’m fast enough. I urge […]

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 […]

The Greatest Teachers

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Tears are my greatest teachers, especially those I never wept. Those I cried on the inside; they were hidden all but unknown. My pain lived there, and my shattered heart littered the floor. Not one ever noticed them, yet I walked on shards, feet sliced, my spirit shredded […]

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, […]

The Person Who You Knew

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Remember me, so I can know myself. Talk about me, so I’ll always remain. Tell me of the person who you knew. Both what you loved and what hated. In the best loves, storybook romances There are things which make us crazy. If they, we linger a long […]

The Living End

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Oh, to find my voice again though I never really lost it. In the grass, a wanton wind. A bridge; I never crossed it. Lost my vision in my mind though I could always see it. Certain that I’d gone blind. Had a dream, couldn’t be it. Ocean […]

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! ~~~~~ Death comes to us all.Death comes for us all.The first early or late orSomewhere in between.It seems to visit more asWe age into silver years. The latter always comesWhen and where it will.At times, our choosing.We are taught to fear itAs its after is unknown.This is true each […]

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 […]
