Thank you, my gracious friends! It's very soggy here...

tonnage

All that you can't leave behind
you have to trail behind you
be careful then, and understand
the past can serve to bind you
yes put your love in what you must
so lesser things can turn to dust
your weight should never make you tarry
be light with what you choose to carry

looks like we both have the same Christmas wish Joro...with so many yearning for the same thing, why are we so far away from our wish for brotherhood? *sigh*

The Slaughter of Reason

All of the birds have gone south but one.
The slaughter of reason has begun.

No one wants the dinner to end
but everyone wants dessert.

You just never know what kind of things other people are stressing about....

This evening's conversation...

Bella: Tomorrow it's going to be a New Year.

Grandma: Yeah, it is....so what do you think of that?

Bella: Not so good.

Grandma: Why? It's a New Year! Isn't that a good thing?

Bella: Because then I'll have to go into third grade, and it will be hard.

Grandma: You're in second grade? I thought you were in first (mutters sheepishly)

Bella: No, I'm in second.

Grandma: (when I could quit laughing) Bella, it's a New Year, not a new school year...you'll still be in second grade. You have to go through the summer yet before third.

Bella: Good, so all I have to learn is cursive writing?

wow, party in my thread! Happy new years all! I had to work today but I volunteered for it.

Didn't want to work the 4th of July or Memorial or Labor day when I might want to camp or something...

heart of darkness

in the moonlight
countless deeds committed
abetted by the light
omitted
false face shown
unto the sun
forgetful of
the crimes they've done

I think you were always a somewhat spare writer but I get the feeling that you've really mastered the art of the understated but incisive poem.

Jer, I treasure your opinion. Since I know your favorite poems are the spare ones, I'm especially honored. Thank you!

here's another spare....nyuk-nyuk
(I'm so punny...)

siberia

lost without words
a lonely place to be
exiled from your heart
the cold wind blows
from the ice in your eyes
as the stranger leases space

magic

what i probably deserve
is living yet another round
living without nerve
has left my ego chained and bound

I want to cast off fear
but life has made me look around
Oh, failure does come dear
even if courage can be found

so life will force a change
and choices to be made surround
will I dissolve my chains
before my life becomes hidebound?

I can't remain the same -
this limbo will run me aground
my spirit will be lamed
vitality and hope will drown

and so I send a plea
to universe wise and profound
my hearts desire to me
the ripples of my wish resound

it was 16.5 here this mornin, darlin..
totally whacked my poinsetta
I worship El Nino and not global warming
Mother Nature just casually being unboring

The Epiphany Celebration was today.
Tarpon Springs right off the bay..
the greek orthodox bishop tosses a cross in the pond
and the teen boy whom dives down and retrieves it is the blessed one
for a whole year
it's really a big thing down here
but, I figure they're all decendents of sponge divers
all will have future spots on their livers

they have a huge party after the blessing
ain't ouzo what the greeks call their homeade?
something like that anyway..
hey, it ain't illinois and it ain't the seventies

I think the ages of these penguin inspired swimmers is 15 to 18.
(no pun on sis m.. he'll get it)
...and we all know what that means
they were all feelin' mighty godly after their cold dip
the holy ghost passed right through 'em
and then it became a social experience
it was all about hair and tits
at least that's the way I picture it way back when
El Nino was even god back then

eat more pork.. it's the other white meat..

If you want a piece of me don't do it on some girl's thread.
I'm gonna mess with you for about a nanosecond.
this ain't the soccer mom's club

the fog comes
on cat feet
it sits looking
over the harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on

Juju, here's hoping he's The One...

Brawn, I saw a bumper sticker once that said, Eat More Cat, The Other White Meat...I had to laugh, because sometimes I wonder whether I already am...

Trulio, I wish I could see Peru for myself...

Joro, thanks for leaving me something from Carl Sandberg...

Jer, where is your poem located? I'd like to take a look...

oh yeah, one last thing about cats...I read this and thought, why am I not surprised? Anyone who's had to clean a litterbox with their eyes watering will nod in recognition...

"And cat poo can be even more toxic than doggy doo -- owners who flush their litter down the toilet ultimately infect sea otters and other animals with toxoplasma gondii, which causes a killer brain disease."

flanders

poppies so red my heart forgot
their meaning
blood red
the field of sacrifice
young men
thrown up against the gleaning
of hatred,
and social separation
the better in their wickedness
the lesser
in their degradation
so hinge the sorrow
of a generation

Wasn't my poem, Brizo, but


The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

I was laughing with you just to be clear..
my lines might suck but at least I don't.. borrow without permission
the last thing I'd ever be accused of is plagerism
I don't even know how to copy and paste nothin'
I'm as sub-intelligent as my keyboard implies
but, I don't have to know much if I tell no lies

That's why I don't write too much about Moby D1ck
why embelish on being anything more than pencil thick?
of course, sans spellcheck
but, what does anyone really expect?

moo?
