Tactical decree sends minds deeper
Into the darkness
Of fear and not knowing;
Lacking light, they
Assume supremacy,
Turning white,
Doomed to blindness.

Craziness runs all
Amidst an insidious, well-
Oiled agenda: distraction

We stand

Encourages us to
Stand firm against what our
Instincts as criminal confirms: their
Self-absorbed, sinister, ruinous plans
To make this country once again grand.

The Year of the Cock

Chaos follows in his wake; he’s
Out strutting his bill in the air.
Clever are those who will outfox him.
Know this: they’re everywhere.

What's at stake

When bordering on
Aggression this way, his
Lies will
Likely make us all pay.

Thursday, January 26, 2017


Tangling his agenda
With non-facts
And tripe, he
Deception on this
Land’s Stars and Stripes.
Enough with his foolish, unfounded gripes!

Coughing and/
Or blowing a nose all day
Leaves one’s head in

Gunk, slime, sludge – or by any
Other name – still
Oozes thickly, slickly whence it came.

Another randomly suggested word. Thanks, G.

Welcome to the Stellar 60s!

Clapping our
Hands with
Energy, we
Extend congratulations; we
Raise a glass to her
Sixty years. Dear friend, our salutations!

Happy Birthday, Shelly S.

Voices continue

One day gone and
Ninety-nine to go,
We’ll keep
Answering their reversals with a
Resounding NO!,
Determined NOT to lay low.

Sisters march

We shall
Overcome, united in this
March, the powers
Engendering fear and hate, and
Negating our integral part.

The bird entrails speak unfavorably

Unfortunately this
Newly elected head is not
Accepting what’s being said by
Untold numbers, even among the
GOP – he is that
Unfit for the presidency. His high
Regard for lies
And distraction generates chaos,
To his great satisfaction.
It is his goal to undo all
Of the good for which this
Nation, indivisible, has stood.

Rounded outlook

Alas, if
We pay
Everyone and everything, we will
Not so readily
Singleness of purpose.

Can such
A group of men
Be truly
In touch with their
Nation’s health,
Especially considering
Their personal wealth?

Way above the boiling point

Gushing high and hot from the
Earth, Old Faithful in
Yellowstone has quite a girth.
Strokkur in Iceland now
Erupts frequently;
Recently unblocked it
Spurts magnificently.

An early 20th century earthquake had blocked Strokkur’s conduit. In the 1960’s this blockage was cleared. Strokkur now erupts regularly.

Every citizen must
Question WHY in these
United States many
Are still persecuted;
Lies only perpetuate
Indignity, fear, and hate.
The truth is,
You and I together must decide our country’s fate.

When we don’t see the whole picture, we cannot possibly understand what is really going on. We’re focused on our own reality. We’re directed by what we have learned, without questioning it. We trust others’ views; we trust them to make decisions for us. If we want to consider ourselves just and honorable people, we must question.

Artful play or playful art?

Palette covered with
An array of hues
Is playing with paintbrush, and the best of
News is that
They’re getting along with the artist’s muse.

Thank you, Eric Anderson!

Or oxymoron?

Puzzling over the antonymous
Aspects of campaign
A punctual
Doctor told a colleague
Of the

The point is...

Printed lines can be
Erased, but this was
Not always so; it was actually a paintbrush
Centuries ago. Back then, the ‘little tail,’
I read, referred not to graphite or to
Lead, but rather to something all men know.

Inner struggle

Pretending to
Render happy
Our lives, we
Strive, but then are
Perplexed when
Even the best things
Reduce us to tears.

Yes, we can!

All these eight years, this
Renowned leader, this
Emotionally, socially intelligent president
Was authentically here for
Let us honor his

THANK YOU, President Obama!

Nuts, for example, over
Electronics and diodes, he
Rambled on
Down alternating one-way roads.

Everybody’s want,
A daily aspiration for a
Life in response
To good decisions and

In good taste

Referring to an
Eclectic mix of flavors
Left behind, this condiment
Is a complement, as a
Hiccup or belch will remind.

Saturday, January 7, 2017


Sublime flavor
Attracts the favor of
Various foodie types;
Or maybe it is just a case of a
Rise in media hype?

Thorny issues

Covered with
A spiny hide, these
Courageous plants
Take the desert
In stride.

Trekking through the
Rugged woods,
A hiker dragged her
Imagination and only once completely
Lost track of her location.

Originally meant 'away'

Ancient cold

Nose to the rising sun,
One then looks left and
Right there on
The hoary
Horizon the very air is cleft.

"...one with the Force..."

Resisting inaction, some
Of the Rebels
Go to Scarif,
United in hope, to undermine the
Empire’s Death Star.

Couldn’t resist playing with this word today after seeing the movie.

Happy New

Yay for new pages of
Ever-changing days,
A chance for greater
Rationality to play.

And entertain rationality we must. As of January 28th, this will be the Year of the Cock. Too ironic!
