Love is All

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ……… Love is All ~~ Ancient before time, impenetrable void waited. Crawled from its atomic shell; instantaneous illumination flared. Newborn this moment. A swirling figure moves, is every moment. Innocently wise, hopeful, in constant conflict.

Dark as Distance

  ~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ……… Dark as Distance So softly now, we whisper Walk along a clifftop path Sun or stars, day or night We chat, calm, confident In the touch, the strength Of holding another’s hand We discover an open gate Stairs, we slowly […]

Nor Does It

A Question

What stories we tell ourselves to create our trues Dreams that we’re superheroes or mighty kings Big shots we see in movies, on TV, in the news Trying to reach that high, despite what it brings History says that most such are unkind people Who’ll lie, cheat, steal, even kill to reach goals Must decide […]

All Our Tracks

Trumpery is Reality Our people must be one. Chaos must be won. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Let there be no dancing tomorrow No music and no joy Let love slide down the sewer drain With hatred its envoy Speak no truth, seek no understanding Huddle outside in fear Seek the wild and lonely places Whether far or near […]
