Nexus

how many souls lay blinded by that creed

stuck on a rock that's lost in the vastness

fatherless child of mother randomness

the underlying view that fosters greed

satisfied by the laws of mechanics

kindergarten of logic and reason

unfit for the tests of intuition

barred from the master class in holistics

unprepared to see past material

as if fearing fatal delirium

through knowledge of concerns spiritual

yet truth is no stranger to…

Conveyed by Rhymes

i can recall the day when the world fell

and i could only watch in disbelief

as people blamed each other for their grief

before hiding back each inside their shell

from there we edged ever closer to hell

dying nature, fires, foul climes above

divided souls all longing for some love

while minds dreaded for them would toll the bell

and now a plague warns us with its dark chimes

to see we're tied, us threads of the same rope

against which…

Somewhere Ahead

as i sit on the floor and bow my head

i wonder why my path has led me here

for which purpose must i be rid of fear

that lies in store for me somewhere ahead

no way could i the turns have all foreseen

nor prayed for all of life's given blessings

for the angels would not reveal their wings

until after the time they could be seen

is it a door i hear, a voice, a pace

or only an echo, a whim, a wraith

a breeze, a thought, a threat without a…

Ascent

now that the truth is out

and edges the windup

say did you really doubt

of where you would end up

just right there where you are

all alone in the night

feeling more fraud than star

and really not that bright

not completely grownup

more bewildered than fine

but still the wait is up

time to come forth and shine

seems you blew your thirties

in healing from your teens

in bending to worries

and in blaming your…

Starscaping

was it not all written

in the divine memoirs

on the nightly heaven

as a pattern of stars

that the worst could happen

at the perfect hour

to rescue the fallen

from haughtiness dour

so that they could in turn

save from the bonfire

their fellow men who burn

in confusion dire

was it not all written

well ahead of the time

in words aptly chosen

metered and set to rhyme

that there's no simple way

to…

Feeding the Birds

1 box of gelatin mix, we use unflavored.

10 cups bird seed, we use Pennington birders blend. You prepare the gelatin as directed on the box (the one I get calls for 1 cup cold water and 1 cup hot water). Then mix in your bird seed. We usually do 1/2 of it at a time, so half the gelatin and 1/2 the…

VI. The Last Best Hope For Planet Earth.

"The new international view of life which places humanity before all nations has produced a greater level of cooperation among many nations. The Earth has the potential to become a global community; this does not require that nations disappear, but on the contrary, submerged groups of people will continue to emerge as new countries. But Earth is too small and too populated to continue in any wasteful competition; cooperation at global and regional levels is already necessary in many…

UNFORGOTTEN

Have you ever experienced the felling that when apart from a loved one..you felt in your heart they were with you as if they really were there.

here's a Robert W Service poem about that.

Unforgotten

I know a garden where the lilies gleam,

And one who lingers in the sunshine there;

She is than white-stoled lily far more fair,

And oh, her eyes are heaven-lit with dream!

I know a garret, cold and dark and drear,

And one who toils and toils with…

Dreams

Dreams:

Nite now and the dreams come slowly surely,

it's a time when I can go back and change things

from the way they were, to the way I want them to be

like when Susan stayed around and Frisko was ours..we danced then..and her cancer never came.

Times when Jimmy and I never went on that last patrol

and both of us came home.

Times when Home was a friendly place and my step father

didn't laugh when I

asked with tears in my eyes…

Qalupalik

Inuit legend gives us the tale of Qalupalik who is described as half human, half sea creature. Like other mermaids, she lives in the Arctic seas and is always searching for disobedient children who roam too close to the shoreline.

They describe her as having long wild hair, green skin, and fingernails so long they almost look like claws. She wears a garment called an amautik which is worn by Inuit women to hold their babies on their backs, sort of like a back pack. That’s how she…

El Monte 1967

I probably will never see El Monte on a

Sunday

or El Segundo washed by winter rain.

I never knew these towns existed-if they do,

outside of the obituary page that states

how many boys came home today in boxes

made of steel.

I'm well aware that some have died

from Chicago too

but it's the El Nowhere towns

I think about this morning

and the young men the whole town knew.

Today some children running down the hill

were…
