“Look,
There’s a spider.
A good year for spiders
Or so and so seems,
Incessantly weaving
Such gossamer schemes.”

but the energy of forgiveness,
which reveals itself through love,
will transform your life in a positive way.”

Windmill B&W blog-“Old Watering Hole” — Black & White Image by kenne

OTHERSIDE OF NOWHERE

Still dusty and dry
the old place ain’t
what it used to be.

In the desert it’s hot
Thirsty for summer rains —
Yesterday was windy.

Vultures circle above
I turn away only to look back
Disappearing into clear air.

The mountains sweep up
As if floating a gray color
Over the old corral.

Soft breeze at mid-day
Vanes slowly turning
The noisy water pump.

A shadow network
Of the sunshine moves
Across dry sandy ground.

I cut down an agave stalk
To become my walking stick —
An old phase made real.

High on the ridge-side
I follow my own trail
To the otherside of nowhere.

Watching The Parade Go By   Leave a comment

St. Pat's Day Parade DSC_1484 blogWatching The Parade Go By (Tucson St. Patrick Day)– Image by kenne

Standing or sitting
the parade goes by.
Children screaming
their laughter rings.

One time she did the same
now an emptiness from
which joy comes producing
flashbacks in her mine.

If she wrote poems, they
would reach helplessly
towards forever-lost pasts
only to glimpse the future.

Curse of getting old — 
Need suspenders for your pants 
Need help with your dick.

To avoid the curse
Stay active, healthy, off drugs,
Monitor her moods.

The Passage Of Time   6 comments

All time is created equal,
but we don’t use it equally.
Some are livin’ on Tulsa time,
while others in a New York minute.

My time is your time,
but it is not mine to give.
You can’t give away
something that isn’t yours.

…unless you share the moment.

“some moments are nice,
some are 
nicer,
some are even worth

writing about.”
