I would love to climb Mt. Everest
Conquer storied seas.
Login never gives peace or rest.
Seems I am never me!
Who in the world do they see?
Login never set me free.
Where you are known
19 July 2021
Nothing hidden, secrets hanging clear,
A pool of aqua green waters.
The eagle circles a moonlight sky,
16 August 2021
I cannot be you.
If ever possible be,
I would not be me.
7 JUNE 2021
Unplugged and disconnected,
Estranged the viral way.
Time lost forever,
Unarmed by sadness,
Care by stranger names ,
Forgotten days of gladness,
Life is rearranged.
One day the doors will open.
Never be the same.
Age line steeply sloping,
Most not in the game.
Clock slowly tocking,
No one can it tame.
Some are still talking,
Don't know who to blame.
12 July 2021.
Betting long chances,
Risking the joy of each day.
Do you want to play?
(Would you like to stay?)
25 July 2021
Age, the weights of time waiting,
Heavier than air pressing reality to the gates,
Time brings the unnatural, disease of diseases.
When there are few easing of eases.
19 April 2021
To read, is not to learn.
To cry, is not to suffer.
To love, a fantasy.
To pray, is not ecstasy.
To search, is not to find.
To give, is not to be kind.
To take, not greed.
To do well, is not to win.
Who can speak the truth?
20 June 2021
Give me the simple life.
No more can I handle.
Complexity and strife.
That is your beauty,
18 December 2022
Not much point looking ahead.
Plans are the younger’s futures,
Comfort blanket for aging beds.
Reality abrupt ed.
I have no time for ‘wasting’ things.
The monitor rings,
Live in this moment.
I hear you have my plan.
I heard it’s concise.
28 September 2021
Feeling I've been late lately.
Changes happening too fast.
World not looking greatly.
Wonder if it will last.
14 September 2021
When things don't make any sense anymore,
Don't sweat the noise.
Not one is listening.
29 april 2021
Reflections on the sea of responsibility,
Realize the deficiencies of mood and logic.
Decisions selfish and unrewarding, impromptu,
Bring the prize of self defeat, pain and endless regret.
Burdens of debt in the baskets of life.
Unbalanced on the heads of the lost.
Struggling to find the way.
Conscience stirs then looks away, but all pay the price.
Lonely game hide and go seek in the stilled rising sunlight.
How to make call, “:You’re Out”?
5 January 2022
Tonight pull me while I'm burner-raw-torn.
Desiccate-night-thirst wake me. Tease.
Moon CFM drown me, break me.
Roaming-desert-music, seize me.
Tonight no hope, I need to sing.
Take the time
25 December 2022
Sitting, waiting, pondering in the airport.
Grand Prairie, cold, snowy, windy.
Separated from family, but feeling strong.
Singing my grateful love song.
This day taking my time cause “nothing wrong.”
Short nap on a leathered chair, my love is here.
Travelling together is our bond, our steer.
Only a few years have we met Destiny.
Was time to be as one, loving, healing, complete.
Taking the time.
Zen Of A Perfect Man
29 August 2021
The perfect man does nothing perfectly.
Easy Morning (Haiku)
4 July 2021
Day spent plan null focused.
Lay in bed with you.
(Heard the rooster. .doodle do)
29 March 2021
When does it stop being noise?
When love listens.
Is there ever going to be enough time
19 July 2022
Suddenly it’s over.
Sun is setting in the west.
The darkness creeps in.
So much today was noted done.
Yesterday was full and felt complete.
Tired and ready to sleep, I pull up the covers,
Put my head down in the pillow, and wish for pleasant dreams.
Waiting this morning, I am blessed with a new day.
When the tears of morning are done,
Excitement of new possibilities sustain me.
Each day is full of promise.
Will there ever be enough time?
25 November 2021
I have been here when I was young.
Dead bears, wolves howling, wooden stairs, wooden legs.
At my heels slavering death.
Gasping, failing breath.
Trembling, remembering their eyes.
Falling into the abyss.
This time will I awake?
12 September 2021
When you are a mountain, no hill to climb.
When you are a mountain, stars mill your time.
When you are a river, water clear falls.
When you are a child, you hear my call.
8 June 2021
When our love is over,
And only worked for me.
My judge murmers dear,
I am not “Guilt free”.
Am I worth the price,
You pay to be with me?
The beauty you carry,
The smile when you greet me,
The day that we married,
So precious they true be.
You are that gentle women,
That always sets me free.
Those times we are together,
When flesh has ruled my day,
Tell me true.
Am I worth the price you pay,
When I am into you?
10 June 2021
Sing my lullabies at dawn with the sparrows.
Flirting, chirping awaiting listeners to my song.
Perhaps one will respond.
Words don’t matter.
Only Ares arrow.
10 February 2021
Weights of the world shouldered some days,
Pain, sorrow, unkindness, full play.
Friends far away caught in a crowd,
Voices lost to others too loud.
Needing that gentle hand and touch,
Sharing the struggle that became too much.
Age and time take huge toll,
Heavy on even an angel’s soul.
Finding the strength to carry on,
Looking for light, tomorrow’s dawn,
You are the strength that I need,
That last found gentle sweet seed.
Valentine’s day, love's in your deeds.
The beautiful path of life.
26 June 2021
I walk on the edge of your beauty,
Morning sun that kisses the blue of the sky.
Sounds of the beach, rustling the leaves.
The sea of you gently caressing the rock that I am.
Awaiting the joy of your storm stirring me.
Living on the edge of you.
The beauty filled path of my life.
2 July 2038
Tattered Checker change-purse,
Dented tin-full toolbox,
Sat with Clipper horn.
Sweaty first dinner jacket,
Dusty rust-skin tack.
Stain-fold loving letters,
Hand scribed fuzzy matter,
Words he couldn’t spell,
Fear of burning hell.
Loved his owned reality,
Lived her life true well.
24 August 2021
Waiting is the hardest,
Where do I wait startled?
Can we know what could be won or lost?
Can we know what will be the cost?
I long waited for you.
Now you, my life is at risk, you are my life.
Flowers or music hardly tell the tale.
You are my freedom from pains of life.
You are that awesome gift fate has tossed.
Waiting is precious time we have lost.
Yes, we have to take the cost.
Waiting is hard.
Yes we have to take the cost.
Waiting is the hardest.
By I am as you were
13 January 2023
Shaken by the possibility you would,
I will be,
To foreclose you.
I am not yet.
To become, you come, expecting my birth.
I cannot be born. I would be as you are.
Do not mourn the pain you will not bear.
We were never.,
21 July 2022
Aging, the inverse relationship
Between capability and need.
A = N / C
23 June 2021
Somedays I fill with wishes,
Winning lottery, youth and yacht.
When I put dishes in to dry,
I ought no lie,
To be more grateful.
For what I got,
Before I die.
So much dangled on display,
That will never come my way.
Grateful that I'm still free,
Don't need those things controlling me.
Life amazing every day,
Think I like it just this way.
Family, friends, smiling faces,
Everywhere in my favorite places.
Still once in an ever while,
I'd like to try that lovely style.
Wishes keep me in the aisle.
4 March 2022
Yesterday, I stepped, fell into yours.
Some chapters were inspiring possibilities, health, happiness, no pain.
But it seems you haven’t realized any of them!
I didn’t stay long.. Too many other better offers.
Rather you, like me, had abandoned your ideal.
Misled by the thought of a tangible reality?
Overwhelmed by the book of others?
Acting on the fear of demons?
Welcome to mine!
23 July 2021
Submerged every moment,
Heaven wish eternal.
Sovereign love we all share,
Golden life maternal.
Generations joy dare,
No beginning end lent.
Love intense in times spent.
8 April 2021
Music my one, your touch on my skin.
Heaven so close, far from love’s sins.
Songs of your heart singing our rune.
Crossed as your cello, strings finely tuned.
There on beaches, moon kiss each dune ,
We danced, filling heart’s room.
Bright as stars burning the dark,
Keeping together when some forced apart.
In fading light of the day,
Your touch forever, our music plays.
10 August 2022
Your fingers run down my soul,
Kissing the sun.
20 February 2021
Foul wind here too long.
No place for you to belong.
Sing your song elsewhere.
Squirrel and the Rabbit
10 August 2021
Met out in my garden,
Middle of the day.
Squirrel and rabbit,
Seemed to know the way.
Quietly pursuing, appetites in need.
None disturbed the other.
No sign of reckless greed.
Wonders seem to wander,
Past my place and stay.
Humans seem to squander,
Every chance for play.
Why not come today?
18 June 2021.
It takes the emptiness of another to raise that aspiration for yourself.
20 June 2022
20 June 2022
They call early,
Get up, each new day,
Good morning friends,
You never end.
Each bend in the road,
Strange friends these aches.
My day awaits.
I am awake.
18 August 2021
Lighting strikes tear your world,
Pieces shatter, abyss hurled.
Gut your clothes, naked on edge.
Careless God back into eternity, darkness.
“Push” chant shoulder phantoms.
Yet you smile. No one you grant,
19 September 2021
Trees are turning to red, orange, yellow, light green,
A rainbow of colors celebrating the full lives of time.
A bluebird stilling, edges along the cedar of the deck,
While a V of geese break through the sounds of morning.
Cooler weather now starts the day with the taste of dew,
Dripping on the edges of hedges and slimming leaves.
I hear your quiet voice humming a reminder of our celebrations.
Our love coming tomorrow, the sweetest time of morning.
20 April 2021
More to poetry,
Than the words spoken,
30 June 2022
Shortcomings in cement,
Anger, pain, really meant,
Open window truth was bent,
Love no longer pays the rent.
Weight of steel bar sent,
Imprisoned acidic scents,
20 November 2021
Free of pain.
How do you know you exist?
Arthritic old sits daily twisted,
Grey eyes struggle, tears misted.
Lost a friend or mother?
Money, job, sister, brother?
Respect, youth, your truth?
The great questions of life and death,
Answered in last quivered breath.
Each day I awake for the sun.
Listen, last song she sung.
Wonder stars filling night sky.
Where will I go when I die?
Cry as wars fill the earth,
Heroes finding their worth.
Feeling that child in my arms.
Loving you, kissing you warm.
Pain lies hidden each day,
Holding the answer at bay.
How long can I stay,
Dec 23 2022
One cel in a movie.
One letter in a word, on a page, in a book.
Bad is Bad. (Haiku)
28 September 2021.
Bad is Bad.
Wasting too much talk.
Bad is bad.
17 March 2021
You are the warm blanket, peace as I rest.
The strength of Olympic pillars in my dreams.
The power of love with which I fly.
On the feathered mattress of temporary,
You give me eternity, strength, courage that survives.
Grateful, I rest.
20 August 2021
We crossed paths on that dating site.
Lunch on the road set the GPS.
You were just right, no less.
All dots on the map matched.
Our love story hatched.
Travel passed all the tests.
You know the rest.
Haven’t had any since!
09 September 2021
This morning trees speak of fall coming.
Leaves are changing in the sun and tilt south.
A grey squirrel sitting saucily on the highest twig,
Looks for more tasty nuggets, some already amouth.
Cooler winds now ripple my still fresh blossoms,
Pink in basket, soon to be stirred with frost.
A noisy flock of geese overhead heading like flotsam,
Calling unsettled direction, all loudly following the lost.
Many will return in the spring to continue their lives.
Buds will break through into early rising light of new days.
So many will be reborn, and thrive.
My fall is coming. I feel the flame. I am ablaze.
19 July 2021
Maturity, nostrils of sweated horse,
Cloistered tight grain silo.
Owlets from oaken corse,
Wandering, none ready to **.
13 September 2021
Tiw’s day solo anon
The time seconds to dawn.
Heart thirsts love song.
Quietly stir the bed of stars.
Skies open on many wars.
Child broken by youth,
Little soothes me.
Calm is sparse, unreachable.
Harsh too feasible.
Time to reach the well,
Cast coin for voten’s spell.
19 September 2022
Bring me wine.
Bring me time.
Bring me love.
Bring me youth.
Fill me before I journey to stars.
Empty me as I die.
