Change is the constant
The only thing that remains the same
Its fine to be the voice of warning
while writing verse that's worthy of the name
Don't apologize at all for things you're writing
So write your heart and never feel ashamed

^^love that line!
'cut the shakles, use your wings'


strong wings we carry
when needed to fly and see
the whole world from a
higher reality and
let our visions run free


oh my...tanka of the brain :) ..didn't realize 'till the end what i was doing...will i ever again be free to write poetry and not be counting??!! (giggle)

I still feel your heart sometimes
Though gone you've been for years
My memories are softened
Time long since dried my tears
Though life has moved you far from me
My heart still feels you here

tears are my blessing
my treasure
they lead me to my heart
to why i cry so
they always bring me
great joy eventually

stepping down my driveway barefoot
the man camped at my gate is awake
two hummingbirds dancing in the air
outlined in the light of the rising sun
spinning airy circles of fairy gold
charming my heart, uplifting my soul

morning Jax, everyone else good morning to you too. My muse is amusing me this morning

climbing on the monkeybars of misery , the only way is down
its not enough to stop
shifting to a better place requires energy made locally (.."this is an exercise")
pills that thrill won't do
you can generate the solution or swallow another problem
there's a choice that takes choice away ...oops

there are always choices to make
some do not believe this
and feel everything's fate
and some believe we do both
that each choice we make
actually fulfills our destiny

Sometimes life is all we’ve got.
Sometimes it’s too much.
Sometimes we want a little bit less, the better to savour it:

a knuckle of love to gnaw on,
or the heel of a freshly baked
pumpernickel bread...

stale bread...dirty water
hunger...thirst
at least there is bread and water
heat the bread...it will refresh
let the water be and slowly it will clear
warmth and patience is sometimes all one needs

when we touch what are we feeling , can this moment stop itself and know
the energy of excitement gathers strength without stealing
from the wish to share what inspiration grows
self has to disappear, in the process of communion
no thought has found a way to take control, outside of time we make our way,
dancing to desire .....music of the mind ..soul to soul

woke in the wee hours of the morning
and checked in to see what was happening
here where we gather and share
and it seemed as if by magic
where it had felt tragic
peace was shining through once again

sometimes it gets confusing
when one is observing
others hear it as criticizing
for sometimes we all
carry sensitivity
to the extreme

once upon a time rather than reading
and writing poetry lines in the night
I'd have a different kind
of nocturnal delight
sharing the fun with a special someone
did I hear you mention page 69?

labelling sometimes
can be careless and unwise
perhaps another disguise
and drugs one might have taken or take
a junkie does not necessarily make
maybe experiencing life is fate (or fake:)

behind every junkie is a trail of bewilderment
a family that cares or used to or never did
depends on who you ask and how much the junkie
thinks his story is worth ..to anyone willing to pay
ive seen the light go on and off , just one more time, cried over and over
as selfishness consumes itself , leaving bones and tears behind

what's your junk?
everyone's got their own monkey
and their own level of addiction
they crave, they fix
they sometimes try to kick
and often only end up back where they began

everyone has the things they love
for some it's what they can never get enough of
like drugs or food or sex or drink, or even what they think....
really anything can be out of balance and become an obsession....
eventually some might see these things do not make them happy....
maybe what does is a healthy addiction to life and love through action and compassion

fate hits as darts do
life races, we try to grasp
the essence with all understanding that we have.
my label, your label
gets stuck like, new written post-it notes
on the foreheads of those who do not fit.
my yellow tag reads, confused.


Why would you speak so modestly of something like this, as you did to me recently? It's strong, lucid and economical!

here there is so much beauty
my heart and soul can feel
secondary is the opportunity
to find a loving mate....the real deal
miraculously found deep within you and me
like sacred ground....feels so surreal

The sunrise brings with it promise
The hope of a better day
Happiness and great good cheer
Will be my winning way
Let smiles be our umbrellas
That's what wet people say:)

the sky is grey
raindrops still play
as they fall off the leaves
of the freshly watered trees
the grass stands tall as if hearing the call
offering soft landing should my tears begin to fall

In a singular state
It's funny how different the world is
when you shift from us, back to you and I
Sometimes in the numbness of the moment
You don't even stop and ask of yourself, why

why in reading here
the last page or so
can feel the tears
rising in my eyes
baring hearts and souls
so bold and so loving

So bold and so loving
Like some really oversexed pirate
Who listened to a lot of sting
That paints an image in my mind
I'm going to drink now
To rid myself of this image

6 Lines or less......boy, am I glad I left that shit behind
Me too
It feels good to relax, and, just unwind
Now if I could just get that image of a pirate
Singing fields of gold out of my mind
