DICHOTOMY PROJECT

~~~~~ Found Verbiage Free Verse Exploring what haiku, poems and stories can be garnered from the headlines, sub-heads and captions (the bold-faced type) in my local daily newspaper, I began to wonder what this says about our existence at this moment in time. Like snapshots, capturing images, emotions, our greater story expressed in our headlines. […]

Whorled Enough and Time

~~~~~ How many names will not be remembered? What numberless stories will never get told? Life on the Earth, with no guaranteed word; No one may remember, when you grow old. Is this any way important, when we’re loved? Mothers, fathers, family and friends abound. To chosen families, we are fitted and gloved. With a […]

The Inside More

~~~~~ I had a thought yesterday And it really made me think, When people stop and pray For a better life, a new sink, Are words they think, say An attempt to hoodwink Themselves? You, say hey, That sound like double-think. What you want, at heart, may Not match the words you think, When you […]

If love as contagious as violence, would we stand carriers at a wall, to then shout, Ready, Aim, Fire? Does violence burn love to ash? Some say that love conquers all, […]

Reason to Ask

Reason to Ask ~~~~~ Let us sit down quietly, gathered all together. Let us speak what’s vital, wind and weather. Listen, the trees that shade us, are our home. Bless beings we eat, wear, the grass and loam. Sit peacefully, talking rarely, in gentle voices, opening our true being to embrace all choices. Acknowledge our […]

Choose

Choose ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ We are but tiny thinking specks, on a tiny living speck, merely insignificant bits of matter. We can choose to be specks living in harmony or war forever, never quit. Choose, the former or latter. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence […]

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. Eliot for his original brilliance. War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength; Trumpery is Reality ~~~~~ Let us slow then, you and I. When vile emissions […]
