Within a Woodland

~~~~~ I fell into a dream within a woodlandunaware of who I was or where I lay.I didn’t know, was I awake or sleeping?I felt protected, like floating on a cloud.I gave myself to soft slumber’s keeping;my heart then slowed, my head bowed. I might learn, if I thought it mattered.Fairies, I espy, sipping with […]

Sing to Me

~~~~~ Will you transport me somewhere divine? A city somewhere faraway; not holy, sublime I know your fingers have learned every street. Broad boulevards, alleys, and narrow lanes. Show me wonders I would not find on my own. Unless I have a thousand years there all alone. Yet, if I’m alone and the city is […]

Note by Note

~~~~~ What dance is this, if I may ask?Is it too capricious to explain?Yet, danced once, it’s easy to learn.Knowing now, I hasten to proclaim.Dance me the stars, the bottom of the sea.Metaphor cannot contain what this means to me.Take my hand and I will guide you step-by step.Everywhen, we shall always have laughed and […]

Rolling the Die

On the Lookout ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ Round and round a die tumbled and spun. Might it bring disaster or merely bring fun? Chances are, it’ll change with every throw. It is only rolling the die that we will know. Now, die, of course, may connote a death. Really, what do you think we […]

Conspires in Darkness

Duplicity x Two in Green ~ Philip Brent Harris ~~~~~ How many scams can one man assay before he’s known to flimflam? How many folks will murder or die before they see through his sham?

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. […]
