There came a day when the
War was over and done,
But it never became clear
Who had actually won...

Nirvana Instant

Now and then
Arrives a
Moment when
The static stops
And all is Zen...

Like A Cloud

The problem, left alone,
Dissipated away to
A place unknown,
And I am left relieved,
Peacefully prone...

All About The Bottom Line

It is a desiccated dinosaur, lying, looming
Hugely, in the concrete suburban sprawl,
Weeds now growing in the cracks of the
Parking lot around the shopping mall,
Bankrupt and abandoned, sad proof of
Change, and how hard things can fall...


Spring break, and the mall is overrun
With children being escorted and chased
By parents, who are not having fun...

Can't Be Helped

The wrong person, or event,
At an undesirable time, will,
Cause an immediate change
Called "buzz-kill"...

In The Greenhouse

Hard science, and smart engineers,
Joined to create the rubber room
We've played in, all these years...


Temporarily disconnected,
iPhone useless pocket weight,
Her angst is greater than expected,
Each passing moment off-the-grid
Leaves her lonelier, dejected...

According To The Map

Life's road is not always straight,
It tends to be twisted and curved,
And what will happen, will happen,
Whether it is random, or deserved...

Japanese Baseball Tournament

Young men marching onto
The field to play a game,
Are not armed with bayonets,
But the formation is the same...

Sermon Dreaming

I remember sitting on Sunday
Being subjected to a boring
Speech, and there was no way
To escape except to get lost
In games my mind could play

Murphy's Law

Things which happen, may
Destroy the best laid plan,
Simply because they can...

Warning System

Somehow they know, the
Things which live at night,
When to call it quits before
The dangerous morning light...

High School Daze

Hooked on getting high
Lost in a video game
As the hours go by
Can't get off of the
Couch, don't even try...

Dealing With It

Living with uncertainty
We do the best we can
Snake-charming fate
And sticking to a plan
Which might mitigate
But can not prevent
What will be sent...

Bare Trees

Winter's last cold blast,
Unblossomed pinks
Hide, until it's  passed...


Words collected to decorate
Describe an impression
Which feelings elevate
Into what must be written

Lives Of The Rich & Famous

Lonely ones
Worship, pursue
Talk to the faces
On T.V.

The Unseen

High altitude snow flakes float
Down and don't make a sound,
Heavenly white, they melt away
Before reaching the ground,
Never seen, they are not missed,
Did they even exist...

Early March

The equinox, still a few
Weeks away, and winter
Has yet to bid adieu
Cold and lurking about
Not quite gone and
I am left in doubt
But all this the plants know
And they push up
Green and start to grow
