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, […]

Wise words I uttered, at too high a cost, because, I cannot remember what I said. ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is […]

Onward to Begin

Onward to Begin ~~~~~   It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth. ~~~~~ Stop. Listen to the world in all its fecund profusion. Block out the noise, our daily whirl, which leads only to confusion. Stop, now. Put away our toys; they cannot, in most ways, begin […]
