Taking Flight

Taking Flight ~~~~~ It’s so late at night, it has become very early morning Yet, here I lie, brain roiled in riot, with unclean hands. Creating, too long awake, intent; I should be snoring. Time it is, passing; I seized uncharted, unnamed lands. Until a nascent answer lives, I shall not cringe nor beg. Review, […]

Once Known

Once Known ~~~~~ Where do we find what we need? The basics, not only food, clothing, shelter, but also music, art, performance and poetry. Also the grandeur of nature, wherever and however it appears to us. Beyond the ultimate basics, keeping our bodies alive and replicating our species, we require the awe of creation which […]

Whether we are single or joined, guardians of children or only ourselves and each other, we all travel together. Our ship will not sail, […]

Contagion

Contagion ~~~~~ Waiting to get my flu shot, sitting in a crowded room, from babies to old geezers, hoping I’ll get called soon. I hope it does its job, if not sickness may for me loom and, I’ll be an old sneezer, daily, from noon to noon. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity […]
