LIARS DEN

A whirlwind of lies This divisive cocktail of hatred Truth is no longer an option   Protection of power; priority Predator hierarchy; mandatory Do whatever it takes to keep control   Burn it all down this liar’s den Burn it all down and start again   All the lessons from history You choose to ignore...

Bail Out

You bail out the rich And hang the poor I don’t know what to think anymore    Billionaire corporate hospitals Sending workers to the street As fat cats in their office take a money bath   Meanwhile the janitor cleans covid  Hoping not to breathe disease  Through her mask made from a t shirt

Color Blindness

Color blindness is a part of the problem Trying to say we’ve moved past it Denies your history It denies the issue   Good intentions won’t change the world Ignoring reality does not provide equality What is written on paper doesn’t always manifest in practice Yes color blindness is part of the problem   The...

Jumble

How are you supposed to compose this jumble of thoughts into a cohesive expression? How am I supposed to compose myself long enough to process? Lord help me I need to understand. How can we ever change if we are so unwilling to change? What the heck is this new editor? I guess it’s been... Continue Reading →

How can it be this way?

I am angry, so very angry I am scared and confused My heart breaks as my mind rages How can it be this way?  We are all equal That’s what they say It is what I believe Yet it is clearly not what they mean   When rights are abused Protected on paper  Yet ignored... Continue Reading →

Separation From the Dream

It is a difficult grief to explain To have dreamed a dream So real and so true Only to be separated from it By failure Disappointing, unexplainable failure The heart aches The soul is heavy To dream and fail comes with a cost Yet so does not dreaming at all Is life without beauty and...

Disinterest

The morning mists swirl A foggy cloud Obscures the objective of the day That is, assuming there is one Maybe it is just sleep Roll over and surrender to the disinterest Yet, there is fight There is always fight The fight remains stronger than the mists So forward I march

Limit the Limitless 

So often we seek to limit the limitless  Contain it in rules, in words, in a book We assigned a gender to the divine  God the father, God the man  God the person?  God the human … hmmm   But is that what God really is?    Eternal, infinite God The holy, the divine We... Continue Reading →

Insignificant

The Universe, so infinitely vast With seemingly limitless possibilities Encapsulated by the impossibility Of really understanding it at all   Particles, atoms, molecules Matter, it all matters The tiniest of details matters Cosmic energy maintaining the great dance of existence   And we, the humans, on our little planet, our corner of it all A...

The Light is a Window

Through the darkness A light invades Uncomfortable, unwelcome   A shining light Interrupting Our comfortable slumber   The light it appears Is a window Small & difficult to see through   Yet, even from a distance You can see something different Something beautiful through the window   The closer you get, the More you can...

Lessons

There are some things that only experience can teach us Lessons only time can offer   However the challenge, when taking advise from someone more experienced   Is trying to discern if they have learned the things they were being taught Or if they simply allowed the lessons to pass them by

Finding Time

As time goes on The older I get It is not finding time To be creative That is the issue It is finding time When I am not exhausted That is the constant challenge     I have so many half begun thoughts for season 2, yet so many unfinished pieces haha. It will all... Continue Reading →

Toe Waterfall

So there you are Thinking, worried About the "why" Maybe even the "how"   And here I am With the “is”, only the "is" It “is” raining “Why” does not concern me   I hold my foot past the porch A liquid crystal lands on my toe A solitary universe of hydrogen and oxygen It... Continue Reading →

The Age of Bones

There are times that I feel old Tired, stiff, ready to stop Though I’m not quite as old  As my bones would have you believe   Sure I could be carbon dated An accurate figure assigned As my joints complain Creaking and cracking   My playful, mischievous mind Tells you a better truth Regardless of...

Domain Change

While I was snoozing

My dot com I was losing 

I suppose that’s OK 

You see at the time I didn’t think I had anything left to say 

After the Long Dark Night

After the long dark night The sun beings to rise Freshly illuminated with morning light Truth revealed as darkness dies   Ominous shapes that lurked in the dark Releveled to be trees, new and alive Fresh growth sprouting from winter bark Hope springs as life continues to thrive   Sometimes we must hibernate To build...

Life is like a river

Life is like a river The current always flows The further down stream you get The faster it seems to flow Yet at times On a gentle bend It appears to slow Almost stand still Then when you look back The past seems so distant Children grow, too quickly Bodies age & get creaky Life...

Is the music dead?

Is the music dead or simply quiet? Has inspiration left or is it just still?   Internal conflict Or lack of interest? Undigested pain Or focus lost?   The creative soul Enters dryness But not darkness A new frontier     The wasteland wanderer Lost in the empty Is seeking a jungle of inspiration  ...

Cologne and Cigarettes

Cologne and cigarettes Each one hiding the other A masquerade of internal struggle Conflict of the soul The creative quandary   The philosopher poses life's questions The expressions of doubt and hopelessness That spark songs The faithful lover, hopes and Writes of a future unknown   Singers of songs Writer of poems Giver of hope...

What If?

What if, we the people decided to be the change? What if, we the people declared we would be the hope? What if, we the people decided that we are better together, regardless of race, nationality, ancestral origin, political, philosophical and theological differences? What if, we the people decided respect and cooperation were better than... Continue Reading →

The Joys Of Aging 

Ligaments stretchAs joints ache  Strange cracking noises  Are greeted with groans Random roaming pains Everything requires more effort  More care You must warm up to get out of bed it seems  It's strange, as life gets a little easier  It becomes more difficult in new ways Ahh the joys of aging
