Mad is in the Air ~ So Vote!

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment Over coffee with a friend during the primaries, we discussed tRump. We disagreed about the tRump phenomenon. While I feel the rhetoric of hate, bigotry, misogyny he spews sets a dangerous tone, incites conflict and reduces the presidency and government to the level […]

So I Dream

~~~~~ Politicians rarely do what is needful, only expedient. They are all so greedful, with more than can be spent. See them stand there sincerely, butter wouldn’t melt. Hearts frozen, all ice and stone so nothing’s ever felt. Any cause moves them if it will win them an election, Convince you they’re there to help, […]

Prufrock’s Lament

With the current news in the world, both economic and political, the aggression, bigotry, misogyny and xenophobia, it seemed time to revisit Prufrock, with thanks to T.S.

Sarabande for Missing Magic

~~~~~ Missing magic, miracles, All vanished, Nowhere to be found. From vast spaces, Gone. Into unseen Miniscule interstices Between atoms, Disappeared. Despite clues, Maps and legends, Whispered rumors; Whereabouts remained Unknown. Quests were mounted. Heroes came forth. Solo adventurers, Fellowships, too, Robber’s trusts; All trekked far, Endured miles Uncounted. Mighty mountains Scaled, Storm-wracked seas Sailed, […]
