The Contradiction


“Free verse

is like

free love;

it is a


in terms.”


― G.K. Chesterton






always said

nothing is free

the piper is paid





awaiting the rain

dry brown grasses catching fire

hurricane season


Poem:     “Delightfully”


nature and the weather

two safe topics to discuss

you may tickle me with a feather

as  friends, let us always stay together


walk with me in my garden

let’s close the gate on the worlds problems

let’s allow our minds to soar like the martin

every faux pas let us agree to pardon


the clouds are gathering, we need the rain

hope I’m not wrong just like the weatherman

to bad we do not live on the plains of Spain

call in the cavalry, come on John Wayne


praying for the veggie plants to produce a cornucopia

getting out the paint to color the thumb green

pleasant and wonderful dreams of my own utopia

awakening,  not wanting to find dysfunction and dystopia


walk with me in my garden silently

let us listen to the sounds of Mother Nature

observing the complexities of Her wonderful society

placed in our memories under the experience ” delightfully”
