Not by Choice

Not by Choice ~~~~~ O, how strange, the quiet world around, Folks wearing masks as if going to a ball. A boring ball, same masks what’s found; Your date may leave in the evening’s pall. The gathering of the magpies and ravens Tweet testily over who controls the purse. I root for any giving small […]

Sorrow and Mirth

Sorrow and Mirth ~~~~~ Watching the gray, the white, a patch of blue. Sky rapidly filling with rain-pregnant clouds, Calls to mind a thousand things, old and new, Fantastic creatures to mountains and shrouds. When the clouds begin to darken till rain falls, Looks like pulling down a black, funereal veil. From inside me, the […]

Begin

Begin ~~~~~ Whether we dream to sail the seas of Earth or space, We till the earth of soil, The soil of flesh. We are, forever, Planting Seeds At home or in distant lands. Sunlight and water, Love and nurture All we need To again Begin The race. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, […]

Star Stuff

Star Stuff ~~~~~ Just when I think I might comprehend it at all, The bright sunlight dazzles my eyes, The moon’s glow befuddles my brain, Reminds me I’m but a stellar child, oh so small ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment ~~~~~ Please, leave a comment and let […]

The Rotting Detritus of Our Daily Lives

The Rotting Detritus of Our Daily Lives ~~~~~ Everything exists And is available, But we are taught Blindness and negation. Children know wonder, The mad may see it, But we will never know. We silence them, treat them As annoyance, a disease, A condition, forced to learn To act our definition of normal. We regiment […]

Dream Strange Dreams

Dream Strange Dreams ~~~~~ Patterns upon patterns upon patterns, All our world is full of shapes and lines. Some appear solid, but science says no. Some are shadows and reflections of us, Our world patterns cast upon everything. How to know, what is real, what is not? Is it a question, or is the question, […]

A glowing orb reflects itself in opposition.

Yin Balances Yang

Yin Balances Yang ~~~~~ Whatever wisdom I have acquired, After learning how little we know, Comes down to simple things. Balance always finds its measure. The life of time encompasses all, While we inhabit our ignorance. Know to always find hate and love, Naturally, mysteriously as dark to light. Over time all things will wear […]

Children All

Children All ~~~~~ All poems are poems for children, Whatever we think they’re about. Children all are born to be poets, Dream alive a mother’s heartbeat. Until they’re lost to ones, naughts. Percussive, staccato rhythms that Write verse about shoulds, oughts, Starve us with the feckless bounty, Our personal flickering blue idols. We, who write, […]

Any Story

Any Story ~~~~~ Winding down the lane or Winding up the stair. Am I alone in this pursuit for? Is there someone there? Can I see them beside me? Do I believe them far away? Is it faith, a new way to see, Or what all the asses bray? Maybe these two are the same. […]

No Reason

No Reason ~~~~~ When I see my father’s forehead, Observing a reflection of my face, I know that one day I will be dead And that time has slowed my pace. As I could not walk while a baby, I know that time may come again. And the how or why this may be, not […]
