Canvassing

Canvassing ~~~~~ Many think we come into the world tabula rasa. I believe slate is not blank, it is a white canvas. White looks quite stark, contains all the colors, Throughout life, we scrape off some, add others. Painted canvas, like puzzle pieces, fill in life’s tale; No matter where we start or end, it’s […]

Lies and Truth

Lies and Truth ~~~~~ What ways We wander, Wonder why, Search, seek Twisted trails, Tall tales, Following fools, Meaning morsels, Broken breadcrumbs, Mired meanders, Wide walkways, Paved pathways, Rural roads, Long lanes, Dusty drives, Graveled grades Sleek superhighways, Cacophonous cities, Electronic expressways, Digital dead-ends.

Sky rapidly filling with rain-pregnant clouds, Calls to mind a thousand things, old and new, Fantastic creatures to mountains and shrouds. When the clouds begin to darken till rain falls, Looks like pulling down a black, funereal veil. From inside me, the […]

Quarantine

Quarantine ~~~~~ As we sit a home and bide our sweet time, Hope we and ours come out the other side. Hording is no more safe than eating dimes; Won’t heal you nor slow pace of time, tide. By all means, I say, be careful as you can. Don’t stroll on busy roads, lick live […]
