This pointy dental fricative
Has mainly been indicative
Of sharp botanical
Rebarbative spikes that
No one wants to encounter. YIKES!

Huzzah! and
Rooted, those enthusiastic cranks
Of yore, for

Perceptions and perspectives to
Attune with
Those of the universe, I
Hear, see, smell, touch, and taste
Your world.

Hush! Be quiet! You’re way too shrill!

One perspective

Exquisitely we float in a
Quality of
Unconditional observation,
Nothing, one
In which we
Make space
Interacting with all of
The loving
You–, I–, and we–niverse.

Daring to
Eject men
From a window, they
Elected to begin a
Era of
Thirty years of
Religious war
Accounted for great loss of life.
The structure of power
In Europe was totally rearranged; the Peace
Of Westphalia laid the foundation for
New sovereign nation-states.

For EMA and JRA. Thanks!

Human infrastructure

Unobtrusive is the
Notion that a
Deep-rooted foundation of
Emotional intelligence – empathy,
Resilience, love, and
Patience –
Imparts to
Neighbors an
Infinite greeting; good-
Natured people, good society
Grows from
Solid ideas that everyone knows.

Thank you, Stacie A. for this word.

Tuning in to the positive

Perhaps when hurdles
Rise up
On our path, we could
Blink, then
Look again, seeing the
Elegance of
Uninvited snag our
Initiation into
The wide,
Yonder world of possibility.

Thank you JRA for coining this word!

How is it that in these
United States
Not every soul
Enough to eat

Please excuse me

Extricating ourselves from
Situations requires tactful
Conversation and a harmless
Attitude that some
People’s company we might want to

Bent on yum!

Bready rings, toasted
And schmeared with cream cheese
Every reason to cheer. And oh, if
Lox arrive on the scene with red onion –
Such is the flavor of dreams!

Oh what a brief, but laden word from
Yiddish throughout the world is heard.

Homing in
On the truth is
Not always
Easy; it
Sometimes makes the
Teller queasy.
