“Your shadow

in the morning

striding behind you

Or your shadow

in the evening

rising to meet you;”


~ T S Eliot’s ‘Wasteland’


Elfje: (Cinquain)



traveling forward

going almost everywhere

stopped by my mind





winters short shadows

natures very own time clock

summers long shadows




looking for the bright side
wanting to share the love
having a kind friend as a guide
I think He is from above

the sheep follow the religion
the books they interpret for their cause
of love He needs just a smidgen
maybe there are just too many laws

always doing the next right thing
speaking from the heart not the brain
upon a star my hope does swing
no need to rely upon shadowy arcane

every thought is a  prayer
as long as you don’t ask for much
a secret oath the world should swear
hugs only with a very soft touch

opining for a trend worldwide
a good deed to be proud of
to rid the world of the acrimonious
to have all hearts and souls harmonious

share the love
be the love
follow your heart
always do your part


ME and the Boss











It has been

a long month

since the last poem

the creative juices

spent trying to

keep up with life.

As the clouds roll in,

the thunder is loud

but the lightening

is out of sight.

Time to write, whether I want to or not.

A little prayer, some quiet meditation,

and God will put the words into my head,

all I have to do is smell the roses.



Thunder and lightening

Summer rains nourish the land

God provides for man



now wireless
pictures now included
can’t talk, text it



Smoke signals, labrophone, tom tom, yodel
communications without going postal
a simpler time when there were few books
where talking was all that it took

The population grows, a curse
the world shrinks and slows
the tower of Babel in reverse
social media tells everyone what you know

media influences what you think
be first with the news even if you’re not right
advertisements that stink

sound bite,

urban blight,

fight or flight,

higher than a kite,

fewer calories in a lite,

no darkness only light,

what to watch tonight,

politically correct is trite,

which ego holds the might,

will man

ever get it quite right ? ? ?
