AND SO IT BEGINS

And so it begins
The game of life
The dominos of love
Falling where they may
The timer activated
Fresh out of a box
Learning the rules 
As we go along
No plan or ruse
No rhyme or reason
Just out for some fun
Moving game pieces
Taking turns
At winning and losing
Rising and falling
In endless succession
An ebb and flow of emotions
The tears the laughter
Riding a roller coaster
Of highs and lows
A detonated cosmic launch
Mingling interstellar orbs
Crisscrossing arcs of destiny
In a waltz of muses
Or divine intervention

ADULT LULLABY



In my arms you can forget your troubles
Close your eyes and leave them all behind
I’ll sway you tenderly to loving rhythms
I’ll comfort you to sweet musical perfumes
And protect you with all the serenity
Of a thousand starry midnights
Under feathery wispy lakeshore willows
That waver in cool late summer breezes
Close your eyes and leave all worries behind

All I Need Is You

Had a little too much to think
And no time to stop and drink
About troubles and toils
And unreachable spoils
And everything I ever wanted
But could never quite gain

So I should find something to hold
Before my hands get sold
Along with my dreams and intentions
And my honorable mentions
And all my stupid little rules
Against ever loving again

But if my hands can find nothing
 Will you be that something?
I’ll break my nature and rules
And turn these hands into tools
To build us everything we’d ever want
Though if I just had you I’d still be content

Amazing Grace

The soul whom the Son sets free
is free indeed,
Unlocking the rusting shackles
of oppression,
Allowing life’s amazing grace
to shine with His embrace,
Transformation of soul’s darkness
to light’s brightness,
The uplifting revelation of God’s
truth of freedom,
His extraordinary and infinite power
shining love every hour,
Preservation and hope for life
His love abound, no strife
How sweet the sound—
Wrapped in His embrace
Singing Amazing Grace!

WINTER WIDOW WORDPLAY



whimsical windswept whiteness 
wedding weekend wanderlust
willowy wonderland waltz
wrongfully weathered woe
wintry wishful whispers
wrestling woodland wintertide

welcome waxen wallflower
weeping wheezy widow
whimpering wholeheartedly
wrangling worthless worries
wanton wretched wrongdoing
wedged within wickedness

Gut Punch

Bearing the brunt of betrayal, 
his long-time lady lover leaves him 
for another flame. Surprisingly saying 
"I'm so sorry, Sam, we should start
seeing other people"

Broken by a brutal blindside 
out of nowhere. He couldn't comprehend 
the reason; the shock shook him 
like a loud trembling thunder
shakes someone out in the rain

Suddenly lovelorn, 
he's left wondering why. 
"What did I do to deserve this?"
To add insult to injury, he learns
she left him for his best friend, Bruce.

CRUMPLED THOUGHTS

 

so many lines i’ve written
in the middle of the night
only to toss them
inadequate

simply not measuring up
to the depths of my feelings
their dull reflections lost
in the yearning of my love for you

seeking those perfect words 
worthy of wings taking flight
to find their way across the sky
where you now sleep

THE ROAD TO MY FATHER'S HOUSE



The road to my father’s house
Is paved with hills and valleys
Outstretched horizons
And sunfilled crystal skies
How he loved the land
Each slope each field
With a consuming veneration
Fueled with layers of history
And virtuous sweat of ancestors
There’s a serenity within me
Sublime that swells as I get closer
Except my eyes aim higher now
Slightly above the horizon
Somewhere behind the clouds
Above the hills and valleys

COSMIC WONDER



when I look up at the milky way
and the nebulousness beyond
my heart skips a beat in awe
i see the miracle of life
the timelessness of splendor
i see a grandiose enigma
the vastness of eternity
and mystery of infinity
i see the magic of creation
recognizing the authorship
of an omnipotent mastermind
in the most cosmic way
providential ubiquitous
i feel the mystique of his love

MARIA



It broke her heart
when Franco died
he’d been her soul mate
wed over fifty years
he’d been her life

For her Franco
she had a ritual
lit a candle every night
so he would know
how much she missed him

Today would be a special day
she felt it when she closed her eyes
wouldn’t be lighting any candle
she took her one last breath
set down the path to join her Franco

BEAUTIFUL TO ME



you are beautiful
when love flows from your heart
and kindness seeps from your lips

you are beautiful
when you reach inside
to find the best that you can be

you are beautiful
when you connect with the world
around you and bring a sense of awe

you are beautiful
when you are genuine
and with integrity share your soul

yes ~ to me you'll always be beautiful in every way

POETRY OF YOUR WORDS



sometimes
it’s the perfection
of your expression
that touches me
in the depths
of my heart

sometimes
it’s the melody
of your words
that reaches
the inner ear
of my soul

sometimes
it’s the silences
of what is not said
that delivers
its charm to the roots
of my being

Life Not A Contest

Your contest I don't want to be in my friend
You want our lives to be a forever contest
Your best friend you always say that I am
Do you always need to be one up on me

I get something new and tomorrow you have it too
I get an illness and you have it or had it only worse
I say I love something and you always loved it first
I want to be me and you be you, as life isn't a contest 
to me.

A Tribute to Andrea Dietrich

she’s a faithful friend
a mentor, a confidant
a trusted teacher
of poetry forms
loyal, loving me for me
with no conditions...

on one occasion
she set aside precious time
to study ALL of my work
yes, from first to last
offering kind opinions
on what she thought were my best...

she loathes the lazy
practice of copy/pasting
bland, boring comments
or: ‘Nice work! Love it! Congrats!’
(short but not so very sweet)
enough already!

she’s funny and fun
honorable and honest
sometimes brutally...
(she knows I need it)
confidence sans cockiness
now THAT’S a lady...

The Sun Shines On The Righteous



     The morality of justice 
     is the light of righteousness.
     Its virtue rises not 
     from concern or faith alone
     but is driven by the needs 
     and love for others
     and to act with compelling deeds.
     It is a God given attribute.  
     To do right is to be righteous.
     On that imperative,
     the sun will always rise 
     on that which is honorable
     to the heart of God.
     The righteous are bathed 
     in the brightness of its dawn
     and reside in the sanctity
     of that divine peace...

THE TALE OF PRINCE AARON



Once upon a time a long long time ago
Prince Aaron was riding his unicorn
When he met his precious princess
In the enchanted forests of the Ottawa Valley
And saved her from flying fiery dragons
He was so strong valiant and brave
Thus started a romance that would last a lifetime 
One day they would throw the wedding of the century
But for now the prince needed to go to sleep
And give in to the dream land of elves and faeries
As mommy continued to read his bedtime story

TIME OF OUR LIFE



Autumn rainstorm
The sound of freedom
The taste of youth
Skipping classes
Naughty and misbehaving
To tunes on the radio
Safe in our own world
Thought we had it all
We had each other
And our dreams
Time stood still

GAMBLING ON LOVE



Young couples every day
Falling in love
Casting the die
Hoping for the best
Vying for true love
Trusting their hunch
In the love lottery
Crossing their fingers
Hanging a rabbit foot
Throw it all on a gamble
Never crossing their mind
To have the conversation
And ask what’s meaningful
What’s important to you?
What do you believe in?
What do you want from life?

GIVE ME FIVE CENTS WORTH



one two three
my all time favorite
fancy and bright
pretty to look at

delish on my tongue
sprinklings of sugar
squishy between my teeth
yummy on my lips

spearmint delights
refreshing jujubes
perfect molded leaves
three two one

Sailing for Love

My love can part the oceans, But it hasn’t reached your shores… Sailing in the breeze with emotions, As my heart rudders and explores. Within the mist of heartaches, The thunder passes through… Shattering sorrows of earthquakes, Exposing the love I have for you. The deep sea swallows my soul, I’m drowning in ambient aquatic… Resurfacing amidst the Devil's Hole, A delusional drift by evil’s erotic. Sails are down the anchor thrown, A lighthouse dims of love unknown.
