All the While

~~~~~ Love is not always what you might think. It comes and goes so easily, do not blink. It is here a moment, but you glance away. Might track you, a bounty hunter for pay. So, pay attention when love is in your life, if partner, girl- boyfriend, husband or wife. When your life is […]

As With Everything

~~~~~ At urgent care, again, but not for me. Got a pain in her right leg and knee. Xray was taken, so we will wait and see. As with everything, what will be, will be. ~~~~~ People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment  Unite […]

Here We Go

~~~~~ When the absurd makes sense and sense becomes absurd. Here we go. Here we go. Around the wheel again. We’ve been here before. Let’s continue to pretend a thing’s exactly what it is. While it is something else. Do you want water w/ fizz or a nasty beer gone flat? Do you have any […]

Comma Delimited

~~~~~ When I’ve said enough, I guess, I will have no need to wonder. I will have passed all the mess. I will exist, I hope, over yonder ~~~~~ People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment  Unite the World! ~~~~~ See more of my […]

Don’t You Know?

~~~~~ All our symbols of success and failure are much more than they might appear. Though they may not be what you think. Paper, metal bits, a conspirator’s wink. If you are rich, you believe I am wrong. All your wants, needs met, a happy song. If you are poor, you know that I’m right. […]

We Shall

~~~~~ In the deepest darkness where most folks don’t go, you will discover people not wearing any clothes. In the deepening darkness where most of us dwell, everyone’s willingly blind. No fire, yet still it is hell. Each lives with a view, whether it is day or night. Some fear the bright sun and others […]

Heard it Here First

~~~~~ The only thing I’ve written so far, I fear since the beginning of this nascent year is the date. It took four times to jot clear. I don’t want you to hear it other than here. ~~~~~ People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is […]

The Giftie Gie Us

~~~~~ How then cannot we see our own true selves? The poet’s answer realized in our social media, where we act half fools and do naught by halves. Constantly connected, on Twitter to Wikipedia. Do we ever look in this mirror that we created? Join we this grand communion, or voyeurs only. And judging others […]

Perhaps

Where the Waters Meat ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ Another year has come and gone and man, it mostly was a bummer. Hope the new year has peace and sun. Perhaps, we will know next summer. ~~~~~ People Over Politics, World Over Wealth! Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment  […]

Book Lice and Mice

Where Air Becomes Breath ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ Would I write something brilliant if I could write as well as I think? Would it register, matter to anyone or be hidden in the halls of history? Might an unknown future scholar discover how a cryptic poet sings? Show the words better soul’s food than […]
