Spanning the spectrum
from Pollyanna to pessimism
within a given day:
so it's dawn with Pangloss
and dusk with Schopenhauer

Never dismiss the thoughts of the elderly
For their words and wisdom you can trust
Because even a mop that is never used
Will still continue to collect dust

I felt like a clay pot
once from the earth
Born with spirit, soul cropped
The owners; my guardians, held me
They allowed me to be used
for my true purposes,
not as a pot but a holder of life;
Later, others wanted me to be a pot for use
To look and act like other pots
Or my uniqueness challenged their sameness
So I became like them, soul lost....

They made templates to shape and slay
Me can't fit, cause I am not clay
Snags and troubles to fit in their world just to-
Eulogize by them, along the scars on our hands
The hardest part is to accept ourself as who I am
Watching others controlling nd seizing our lands.

Had a bad day
Unpaid bills on the desk
Kids demanding designer clothes
Toothaches without dental insurance
Partners who don’t want sex today,
Or most days, for that matter
Because they’re thinking
About the bills, the kids, the secret pregnancy
Taking out their frustration on who is closest
Rising heating bills during a February snap
Internet companies that overcharge
Because you d...

Skin could be freed

Bald is the new death

Awake at dawn, with almond eyes,
The queen is seated on her throne;
Confronted, under leaden skies
With prospects of a life alone.
The taste of young and tender shoots
Was too soon soured by the storm,
And crushed by soles of marching boots
Which flaunt their predatory form.
In some far field his buried feet,
Anonymous, lie, like the rest.

Last signs of life:
Silence filled up the whole room and the only sound I could hear was her last breath.
No one spoke a word, we were silent and we just stared at each other.
After every second passed, I felt more attracted to her,
it wasn’t love, it was something stronger than love.
I fell in love with her not because of the soft personality
not because of her prec...

It’s the last day of Winter
Feels a lot like mid Spring
Crocus and daffodils in bloom
Snowdrops are fading
Warm sun on my face
Shines bright in a cloudless blue sky
We made it though Winter
Another season passed by
Out in the garden
Sights and sounds of Spring fill the air
We celebrate with a cup of tea
And a chocolate eclair

My daughter was looking through a catalogue and saw an expensive coat,
On the page she wantingly did gloat.
"I must have that,I just love the fur."
So I cut it out and gave it to her.

Last day of February, it feels like Spring.
Flowers are in bloom, morning birds sing.
The baby blue sky is totally cloud free.
And beautiful Stanley Park is inviting me.
An invite I gladly accept, how could I not?
On my doorstop, this lovely park I've got.
The gentlest of breezes kiss my cheek.
The trees look healthy not so winter weak.
So off I go, leaving my winter coat behind.

To be held in suspension by nought
To stare blankly as the eyes freeze
Not to see what is in one's vision

Refusing to be arranged in order
To ponder without comment or resolution

She's too good to be real

I believe in heaven because of her
She's Every cliché wrapped up in one
Perfection is jealous her
She makes my heart go boom pop by noon
She's an independent woman she didn't need no man
She's calling me baby and I'm in love with it
Perfection is jealous her

You leave me lost for words even when my thoughts aren’t pacing.
I just want you to call me mi amor, grab me, then have my heart racing.
Though often I wonder, is it unrequited love that I am chasing?
But I would risk it all for you — even spend an eternity waiting.

The blue sky kissed the evening sunset
As I saw you by the window seat.

My heart nearly skipped a beat.

There are memories that I cherished.
How sweet we were looking, laughing like idiots

We met again when the snowflakes were falling.

“I want to get a vasectomy”, the words came out bluntly.
I was frozen, speechless, and shocked by this confession, so abruptly.
We’d been fighting on and off for months over small things here and there.
Your gambling and anger, my jealously and despair.
We were strong for a while. It was love that much is true.
But I was aware it was crumbling. I could feel it inside you.

Full of incoherent dreams

Born of poverty, to a working class that knew no favours, forged in the fire of our troubled teens,
We wanted to taste life in all of its variety of flavours, and we had the will, if not the means,
Set on such a wild path before we’d ever even met, rough under foot with the promise of these things,
Paupers in terms of material riches, and yet, you and I brother were destined to be, “kings,”
