Most of my work is positive and uplifting, but there are times when the sadness seeps through and here, I write whatever emotion is begging to come out. Hello Poetry is my solace and the many beautiful souls here are a most welcome retreat from a sometimes very hectic and everyday life. Thank you to each of you for being here, for sharing, for connecting.
Life is Indeed a blessing!

Not only am I drowning
but so many are going down
along with me--
our hopes, our dreams, our ideals
are being swept out to sea
the man who claims victory
is more than just a man
he embodies evil and greed
like no other in this land--
he cares nothing for AMERICA
unless it brings profit his way
and he will stop at nothing
to rule forever and a day...

So don't bother to save me
as I am falling beneath the sea,
I cannot tread water
for he is determined to drown me
and so many others
who only want what's best
for our beloved U.S.A.
and oh my god
this test
is far too much
and I kneel down and pray
and ask the gods above
to watch over the entire globe
for beware, I see it coming
this man in charge
has not much of a frontal lobe
and we are doomed
not just as a united country
but as a human kind
for we've elected an official
who has literally lost his mind...

I feel such despair and fear. I hope I am wrong. :(   :(   :(

There's no walls
that can save me
tomorrow there will be
more rain, let it come
drop by drop
until the entire ocean
falls on me
a mesmerizing force
of nature, born to stir
like a hurricane
you moved through me
like the songbird's songs
love the sky
in the early hours
of fullness and freedom
waxy blossoms
in the thick of it
tapping my shoulders
capturing the essence
tangled sweet and wet
a blushing spring breeze
tousled in my hair
your fingers run over
caressing my cheek
burns to the core
the beautiful things that
take you higher and higher
swallowing the air
in the orchard
where you breathe
a sea of trees
threaded with fire
tossing its aspiring flames
climbs the briny swells until
distinct from my own
I sunk into the ocean's will.

Peering into the depths
of your smile
is a soul searing, life changing
and most momentous privilege
that will live on in my heart
for all the rest of my days.
You see--
your smile has lifted this foggy veil
that has left me feeling
so immeasurably dazed--
The immense pleasure
of seeing your gracious
and endearing smile
that exudes from
the deepest regions
of your heart and soul
send shivers of delight
through me
and makes me know
that no matter what happens
throughout my day--
your smile will help
to guide my heart
all along the way.
And if only, only
somehow I knew
that you could feel
this immensely huge gratitude
I hold for you!

You just never know when a smile can change the outlook for someone. I was having such a tough and sad day, yet this lovely soul
stopped me in my tracks with a genuinely beautiful and heartfelt smile.
Suddenly my day felt lighter and free and happy again!
I am so incredibly blessed to have folks who care!
The Smile I received?

In the impending days ahead
I hope to face them with awe
and not with dread.
Not a moment goes by
that I am unaware
of tears so many cry
and my heart breaks in two
as I realize with huge regret
that there is nothing
absolutely nothing
that we can do...
However this one thought is true:

I wish the best to happen,
I
really do...

all this mindless commotion

when all Desire requires a beautiful calm

on an endless ocean


the soft candles are luminous

as the ambient sounds stream through this blue room


heart flickers and flutters like the faery's dance with the white moon

one last round before it becomes too much emotion to hold


have yourself a toast to change whenever life is strange and wild

like now.


Sovereign and free-bodied

this sweet fire is slowly being hushed out

these dreams only complicate the feelings to deny

what is left for remorse


the angels are whispering on silver clouds

the night is dying for the day to begin

it's time for reinvention of the old soul

This is my final literary contribution. I was hoping a certain someone would be able to collaborate with me. Alas, she declined. I decided to create a new poem. I think it is one of those transcendent writings. it's true without being artificial. it's sweet without the aftertaste. Anyhow, Thanks. My journey will leave this community but one day this virtual pilgrim will return. You might not recognise me or identify with this new status. Take care now.

C is for Creation.

If I lose myself tonight,
Don't come looking for me,
I promise I'll be alright,
I need some space to be free.

Don't use a compass,
Don't use a map,
Just wait at home on the front porch,
When I'm ready I'll come right back.

Don't ring the police,
Or search all day,
Just let me travel and go far away.

If I lose myself tonight,
Don't be alarmed,
I'm finally escaping to a quiter place,
Where I wll remain unharmed.

unbearable awareness
sometimes threatens to invade
to wrap its proverbial fingers
around my neck
and squeeze
until my heart explodes
within my chest--
but then
suddenly
and inexplicably
you arrive on the scene
and loosen
the grip
of fear, angst and regret--
you caress
my innermost
intimate parts
with your eyes,
your hands,
your beautifully
spoken words
and remind me
that you,
(yes, you)
are who
rescued me
from the depths
(so long ago)
of my dark despair--
so when it happens
again--
when I become
so unbearably aware
that life and love and sorrow
are all intermingled
into one and the same--
I will know then
to simply
raise my voice
with true determination
and call out
unto the universe
your name...
