December, left on the wall
Thoughts of leaving
The cold outside

Say what you say when it rains
Either way, we should leave them on the floor
The little notes we pass through our eyes

Yeah, I liked that line, too, though I have this haunting feeling I might of subconsciously picked that line up from some place. I'm always afraid of that.

The Name Of a Poem


Sometimes they stand in front of a fountain
hunched over
with their hands out
and say to tourists

‘Si si porco miserabile’

Hands, so full of day.

I should put down my head,
go carve a name in a tree?

That is how it is at fifty one,
the beginning of a slow march.

I should remember to bring a book.
One with poems
and holes
where I can drop my eyes

‘You don’t have to work hard
or suffer to be in paradise’

They were good soldiers.

Do not order them, that is my occupation.
Do not ask of their condition.
Leave them, in the middle of their own march
with their own knife.
It is not a knife of hatred.

Two Cruises Up Shelter Valley Road


It happened that
Each ride took me past
the graveyard
where my father was
smiling

In fact,
all along the hillsides
of Shelter Valley Road,
families of trees were
yellow and gold.

what a lovely image there om.

as for being vague, one of the joys of writing is that it is subject to the interpretation of the audience. i always love to hear it when someone gets a meaning from my words that i didn't anticipate. just revel in the fact that you stir things in your readers.

Two Stone Wheels



You were always estrange
like the distance between us

I could only believe that
it was suppose to mean something

So I didn’t stop
to stand over you
like a mourning son

In fact,
when I drove by
I imagined you
standing there
grinning
like you knew
how motionless
and joyful
a distance can be
riding a stone up
Shelter Valley road

Hi folks

Just a quick howdy, and thanks to, TNT, Tree-cat, and AF. Good to see you all.

It's a great road to bike up, AF! The Fall colours made it even more enjoyable.

Seems like, "reaching out", is always a good 101 lesson for us. Thanks for leaving your hat, there, cat..;) Sounds like you had a nice resolve.

ok, finally a whole week off. Yes!
Let's see if I have a wee ku before I split this city, again.

when you are

oh, let's call that an iconku

A Critiquing Poem

'Saved by a Poem:
The Transformative
Power of Words
an evening of poetry, music and
inspiration with Kim Rosen'

I was in the nose-bleed section of the living room.
The dining chair was uncomfortable!
I left after the first half

Meditation music, and poetry ?

Nah,
last night a DJ saved my life

There’s a sandy beach
Where you brought your kids.
The waves
That once rushed to your feet.

A Hand-Mirror (by Walt Whitman)


HOLD it up sternly! See this it sends back! (Who is it? Is it you?)
Outside fair costume--within ashes and filth,
No more a flashing eye--no more a sonorous voice or springy step;
Now some slave's eye, voice, hands, step,
A drunkard's breath, unwholesome eater's face, venerealee's flesh,
Lungs rotting away piecemeal, stomach sour and cankerous,
Joints rheumatic, bowels clogged with abomination,
Blood circulating dark and poisonous streams,
Words babble, hearing and touch callous,
No brain, no heart left--no magnetism of sex; 10
Such, from one look in this looking-glass ere you go hence,
Such a result so soon--and from such a beginning!

Walt Whitman

Lesya Ukrainka (Laryssa Kossatch) (1871 – 1913)

Contra spem spero

Thoughts, away, you heavy clouds of autumn !
For now springtime comes, agleam with gold !
Shall thus in grief and wailing for ill fortune
All the tale of my young years be told ?

No, I want to smile through tears and weeping,
Sing my songs where evil holds its sway,
Hopeless, a steadfast hope forever keeping,
I want to live ! You, thoughts of grief, away !

On poor, sad, fallow land, unused to tilling,
I'll sow blossoms, brilliant in hue,
sow blossoms where the frost lies, chilling,
*I'll pour bitter tears on them as dew.

And those burning tears shall melt, dissolving
All that mighty crust of ice away,
Maybe blossoms will come up, unfolding
Singing springtime for me, too, some day.

Up the flinty, steep and craggy mountain
A weighty ponderous boulder I shall raise,
And bearing this dread burden, a resounding
Song I'll sing, a song of joyous praise.

In the long dark ever-viewless night time
Not one instant shall I close my eyes,
I'll seek ever for the star to guide me,
She that reigns bright mistress of dark skies.

Yes, I'll smile, indeed, through tears and weeping,
Sing my songs where evil holds its sway,
Hopeless, a steadfast hope forever keeping,
I shall live !
You thoughts of grief-away !

The Burn of Dyslexia


When it comes,
it comes in like a burning iceberg
carried on a wave
up through the body
into your furnace face.

'Here, read this to everyone'

That's when you're 'outed'!
And that's the moment when you know
someone will get hip-cocked and say,
'you soft'

Mondays, they are like wet city streets.
Not like ocean sand.
I need my steel toes on, Mondays.
