Do You Surmise?

Do You Surmise? ~~~~~ I get so very few likes or comments. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I know I will sound weak if I lament; Not for satire, opinion, short or long. I realize all of my verses are not gems. I am sure that some stink up the joint, Still, I […]


~~~~~ I’d happily spend all of my days as nights, If I could only live all of my nights as days. What’s the problem someone random says? They are but labels; call them what you like. Trees, I believe, may well be dogs or birds. While dogs are railroads and birds flowers. Seconds could last […]

I Would Choose

Shall we now, forever, no longer pretend That we have done anything less than sinned? Whether stumbling through our ignorance, From our hubris or through fate or history. If saints all, we would still plead unaware Of acting less than noble, acting like we care. Not everyone in every time, beginning until now But so […]

What is There to Lose?

~~~~~ Soldier straight, Their brother stands, Their sister stands. While they reach out Their untouched hands. We step beneath Their outstretched arms, Unable to imagine all Myriad and costly harms. Cost of life, of hope, in pain Dwarfing any envisioned gain Humankind is anything but kind. We need but look to find Animal, vegetable and […]

Will Always Be

~~~~ Does your life feel like a Mobius strip, An infinitely endless high wire? Never getting anywhere, still you trip. Or like a spiral, going lower, climbing higher? Perhaps, the spiral of a hypnotist’s disc? Do you fall off one watching the other? Lost in tawdry mystery, unwilling to risk Diving into the deep end, […]

If Never I Would Leave You

This should be sung to the tune of If Ever I Would Leave You, from Camelot. Should be featured in the new musical, Scamelot. If ever I got impeached, It would crash the market. Really crash the market, As only I know. My hair streaked with sunlight, While flips said my name, My face full […]

Can I?

When I was young, I was wise; It’s all leaked out of my head. School poked the hole, I surmise. Can I put it back in, ere I’m dead? ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ See more of my creative offerings and opinions Brent Harris Fine Art […]

Give it a Go

Starting late and you’ll be late. Starting on time, no guarantee. You have chosen to participate; Relax. It will be what it will be. ~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ See more of my creative offerings and opinions at: Philip Brent Digital Art  Philip Brent Digital Art and […]

I Wonder?

What would I do with me, without you? Do any of us know what would be true? More than I was, less than I have been, A piece of me missing, no nib in my pen. Scratching at life but leaving no mark, Like rubbing two sticks, without spark. Words are too weak, should I […]

Be a Child

Oh, to be a child again, Not knowing very much. Using magic, no word or pen; Most adults can no longer touch Poets, dreamers, no citation, The mad and sacred artists know; Close their eyes and touch creation. Childlike, they are able to alter the flow.
