Time Alone

  ~~~~~ Are we contemplating our days of future past? Do we think anyone will remember us at last? Study us, analyze where, when, why we ended, discover how we died, greatness we pretended. Will they applaud us as the sun, moon and stars. view us like the finest horses, fastest race cars? Discard us […]

None May Know

~~~~~ Imagine, how do we tell our own love story? Do we believe love exists in a state of grace? Fear it will be a stroll along life’s razor edge, A plunge into the deep, head first, eyes closed? Do we make our dive unsure if we can swim? Will love’s buoyancy help float us […]

Listening to What?

~~~~~ Can we find our way to the winding path, Which leads through the woods’ darkness? Hold hands, be brave, support each other; Frightening it may be, but nothing’s forever. This keeps my hope alive; it must change. Lemmings weak models for how we march, Lockstep, dead eyes forward, seeing no other. Doctrine, prejudice drummed […]

As I Fall Behind

~~~~~ In the light of the sunset,I saw the eyes of truth.Though they showed the debtI accrued in youth. They left me smiling, just the same.

Answer to an Unasked Question

  ~~~~~ Answer to an Unasked Question Passionate Pacific, my daily inspiration: sunlight, sand and surf..Murmured messages wash on shore, chased by crashing wavesWarm strand, moonlit, twinkling on the swells, reflecting earth.Wind, water, weather form transient art, nothing the sea saves. Humbled, vastness of ocean, rolling horizon beyond our views. This and more as well […]

Revolving Rhythms

  ~~~~~ By Phileas the Lesser  Hiding horns, unseen unicorns silently slumber using understory. Conifers cloak,  cover, camouflage creatures casually capable. Filigreed fountains,  rambling rills, misty mountains, water walls. Mythic mounts living languidly, lingering longingly. Lovely life. Colossal cities calcify creation, kill knowingly. Repeated reservations. Murmuring madmen mutter menacingly, molding mechanical men. Righteous robots rigidly […]

Three Letter Folk

~~~~~ We have absolutely no idea how our world will change Despite those who have wild hairs of how to rearrange. Someone may push a button, start the last of our wars. Perhaps, we finally see the dream of having flying cars. What of the three-letter agencies hidden in plain sight, Who tell us they […]
