“The only thing

that can save the world

is the reclaiming of the

awareness of the world.

That’s what poetry does.”


~ Allen Ginsberg






warm feeling

clouds gently billow

plants nod in agreement



Haiku:  (traditional 5-7-5 )


wind gently whispers

nature calls for attention

all senses aroused


Haiku: (modern 6-5-6)


wobbly earth fluctuates

species come and go

global warming happens



does the world need to be saved

my mortality really doesn’t care

legacies belong to the depraved


my garden feeds the birds and the bees

does nature notice that I am aware

will all be erased by another disease


can my poem be the lighthouse

will artificial intelligence become god

do universities create the theories to espouse

few are the souls who salvation is craved

is there anything that is not flawed

does the world need to be saved.



ME and the Boss
