Bus traveling down the road. Filled are the seats with a varied load. Moving home at the evening rush hour. Faces relaxed, happy, or dour. Two women talked of the day. Lost in the words that each would say. Behind them a rider known by one in the past, Parted by space and times growing […]
As I walk by the aisle of death and look at the body parts that are left Chopped, put up for sale. I see the local favorites: cows, chickens, and pigs. I wonder if they cried at their time of death.
From within a glow, Only we two know. The depth of warmth, Which held hands show. Dancing through life with me, My “Belle of the Ball”, And there to catch me, When, at times, I fall. My everything, So simple, some would say. Truth is truth, Night gives to day. She chose me, And lucky […]
A rainy day will beat a sunny day any day. I’ll tell the sun to go away. Splashing in a puddle, kids play! I like walking in the rain it’s entertaining. Forget the sunshine, I hold an umbrella and enjoy the rain show. The day is mine. Tomorrow, who knows?

As the sun rose over the hills, I saw you standing there. A glow came from within you, A warmth shone in your hair. I had wondered if you cared, Wondered if you knew. Wondered if you felt, What I felt for you. The trip was long, The wait longer still. The ache of loneliness, […]
Ten decades to live, laugh, and play. Your ten decades they waste if you stay a slave! Sheep being herded on a farm. The sheep herder milks them hard! Takes their wool, too! Sheep—another name for fools. Four decades in, my eyes open after questioning and reading. Reading is fundamental It’ll set you free.
Would you comfort someone who is sad and blue? Someone who needs love, just like you? Would you stand for hours in the driving rain, Waiting for your love to arrive on the train? Would you walk with joy, bright in your heart, While Cupid readies still another dart? Would you give love, and gain […]
