There came an old man Who sat down by me. He had a white cane But still he could see The world and all in it Much clearer than me. I could hear the man’s voice, Though he didn’t talk. Just a tilt of the head And a way in his walk. The […]
I’m missing each day Looking over my shoulder. Missing in every way Tired and much older. Not so amused. Dazed and confused. Why am I looking? Looking way out ahead. There’s nothing out there. It’s here in my head. I am not amused. Just dazed and confused. If my mind isn’t here Am I not […]
When we were young and life was fun, We didn’t care, we had no clue. What was there for us to learn, In those days before we knew? Soon we were warned about Big G. Of mortal sin we lived in fear. JC would save us from our woes. The Holy Ghost may not appear. […]
I weaved on gently through Phangna. Its forests lush, its air cool steel. When soon it seemed and not so far, How small did I then surely feel; As overpowered by limestone cliffs, The sky was filled with monoliths.

I followed my head and not my heart And feared what never happened, then The good that was, I surely missed And never knew the joy that lay, Within my sacred space.
High city walls are all about me. Yet no walls can I see. Storm clouds hang above my head But no rain falls on me Bright sun lights the horizon A thousand miles away. Fields of corn wave in the breeze. Flowers bloom every day. The walls they now close in As storm clouds start […]
You played on the edge Lived life on the brink Then one day too far You fell in the drink. An angel alone In a lost paradise, You made your own ‘gainst all good advice. You chose your way As all of us must. Hear others speak. In ourselves we should trust. Nobody knows who […]
