is the beginning

of all knowledge.”

smile

pretty face

eyes that sparkle

a very happy heart

laugh

peace and happiness

joyful bliss

by doing God’s will

Poem:

.

a hot muggy summers night
air so thick it hazes the moonlight
crickets and frogs don’t seem to mind
what a wonderful world God has designed

man’s so vain he thinks he can affect the weather
it’s Mother Nature who puts things together
evolution caused by the Earth’s wobble
man is but one percent of the climate bobble

the earth’s crust is constantly shifting
the tectonic plates are always drifting
man’s existence is but a blip on the Earth’s timeline
for what little we know we can thank Einstein

who cares if New York City sinks under the sea
that Saint Andreas fault sets California free
is there an Orwellian world in our future
or will civilization flush itself down the sewer

will man’s ego still reign supreme
or will we wake up and learn that it was all a dream

A Web You Weave

.

‘A story is

like something you

wind out of yourself.

Like a spider,

it is a web you weave,

and you love your story

like a child.”

.

~  Katherine Anne Porter

expensive

well made

rarer than rare

people, places and things

dear

over the river
going to visit grandma
and through the forest

respect for family birthright
prideful genealogy
.

Poem:

.

no, no, your other left

.

let us all take a trip to fantasy land
a place where everything is a one night stand
a place where fact and fiction are intermingled
a place where everyone’s vision is wrinkled

we’ll call the place california*
a place filled with tropical fauna and flora
also a place filled with fruits and nuts
everyone taking selfies of their butts

a sanctuary for felons and illegals
and we are not talking about sick eagles
daily fantasies produced by tv and movies
you can’t, won’t, don’t die when shot by an uzi

the whole place is cracked by the San Andreas Fault
every other producer charged with sexual assault
the fifth largest economy in the world
a place where the Mexican flag is unfurled

their representatives are poster children for term limits
their southern border like a sieve inhibits
politically and on the map they are as far left as you can go
they believe the feds have no right to know

we pray that someday their sanity may return
the unity of the nation should be their major concern

* The name California originates from the Spanish conquistadors,
after Califia, a mythical island paradise described in Las Serges de Esplandian
by Garcia Ordonez de Montalvo ​  (a Spanish romance written about 1510).
It most likely came from the Arabic word khalifa which means steward or leader.
