We Hugged

We hugged – that’s all
In our pajamas sometime around 3 or 4 am
We hugged – that’s all
The warm body pressed the seconds into hours
Then back to sleep again
It was a deep, strong
Commitment by two loving people
One of them was me
We hugged – that’s all

 Memorabilia for Mars

With patience nourish yourself and help replenish the earth
And when you grow old, infirm and crooked
Remember, you have done your part
Seeded and harvested
No tree can ask for more as it sheds its leaves

There will be a day –
When the earth crumbles
And all humanity scrambles away
on huge spaceships with all goods, inventions
Memorabilia for Mars

Momentary - you are temporary
And as you daily rise
You will fall

But never your spirit determine
You have been chosen in this time,
this place to participate in the greatest theater of life
Go - play your part
And when your time comes
Your spirit will mesh with mine for eternity

 Ever Yearning

Rules are to be broken

Laws disobeyed

Total freedom

Rejection of all but the self

On a high pedestal

Anarchy supplanted by dictatorial
Magical oratory bedazzles
Drowned out by horrific percussion

All so futile.

Deadly, bloody

Each has followers

Spurn the rational

The compromise, the balance

Stirred by body chemicals

Like rubber bands

Stretch from one extreme to another

Unseen turmoil

Deadly storm on the horizon

Nature omnipotent

Kneel, bow down, and prostrate yourself

We are but grains of sand

Washed, tossed, sunburned

All so transitory

Some live more than once

Our shadow blinks and disappears

Into ashes from the mold of birth

Ever yearning

An Eventful Day

The morning wakes
Somewhat warm incoherent
Open summer day
My choice for this Saturday
An open world
Arms held out from horizon to horizon

Almost like Moses holding the tablets
Of the Ten Commandments
With ample choice to fill
The precious hours
All mine to choose

So positive and hopeful the spirit of the moment
Open door and window begging
Dreams to fruition and reality
All I can do is try, to meet my challenge

An air of quiet peace
Like water poured to fill a cup
So too new thought collate
So many choices
So many possibilities

It's going to be an eventful day
Struck off my life's calendar
For who knows how many we have left ahead of us!

We take off one shoe at a time

One sock at a time




No zest

We slew a dragon today

Had our share of loves and dislikes

Survived confrontation

And for this, we buried the hatchet

Turned over the garden

Schemed against society

It was a full ride

And when I turn

The lights out

I will meet you in my dream world
