where creative minds can interact
While I have this sad country twang mood going on I might as well throw this out there.
'Holdin' Grandma's Hand'
There are certain things you wait for patiently
and certain others for which
is all that will do
I mean, you know how much you like your coffee?
in the morning evening even afternoon
and when you're out it's over!
the whole world is going to hell in a bucket
and you are most assuredly
NOT enjoying the ride
There are certain things you don't mind needing
and certain of…Continue

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words…

Why can't Google Maps
Find what I am looking for?
Where are Peace and Quiet?
I'm outside, alone
Looking at the stars
Talking to them as if they were long lost friends
Knowing they won't tell a soul
Laying on the ground
Making snow angels
Like I'm five years old again
No one can bring me down tonight
It's just me, the stars, and my dreams
The rest of the world has disappeared
Though my nose is cold
And my feet are numb
Since I came into your library on a brief break from my hectic coaching schedule, I have thought of you when my mind had the chance to finally rest, which isn't often. I don't really remember your name, but your smile that reaches your eyes did make an impact on me. I appreciated the time you took to help me find books from the list I've been keeping, which is a lot more immense than I would like. I can't seem to stop myself from wanting to know more, even…Continue
I've only seen you once here, asking about books, intensely discussing the reasons you love historical fiction and nonfiction. I was impressed immediately by how much you seemed to love reading and enjoy finding out more about history--I think I'd fallen prey to the stereotype of non-reading, blockhead former jocks who wouldn't go near a book unless it was entitled "Sports Illustrated Best Bathing Suit Covers." Please forgive my prejudice! Admittedly, I do also…Continue
How will it turn out?
I don't like uncertainty.
Tell me the ending.
Look in the mirror
And smile at what you see there:
Your beautiful self.
What is black and white
And is very, very old?
The hell if I know.
Seated upon the too firm sofa, are two thinkers,; both residing in one body:
" Say, did you not promise to quit your deadly habit?"
" This is true. Although, I did not say "when" , if you correctly recall.
"I want you alive to someday see your grandchild " "So set a date today"
"I cannot say when. I NEED these wonderfully relaxing cigarettes. With every random act throughout my day, they punctuate . Besides, many people,including my dad, smoked all their…Continue
With every thing that is going on in the news these days.... the WikiLeaks stories, the tax bill, two wars and so on, it is telling that one of the dominant scoops in the American media is a video clip of Miley Cyrus smoking a bong at her eighteenth birthday party.
Oh. My. God. Say it ain't so!
Why in the world this is supposed to be such shocking and distressing news, I have no idea. And yet we have her father, Billy Ray Cyrus (the only guy who ever actually…Continue
Isn't it a little much
when the little child says what
you should know
Isn't it just a wee small bit
when so soon her face has lost her
Everything that brings us
and all those bits that
set us off apart
forevers trapped in trusted
Oh, sometimes I could fall
away down under
at others I would rise
We walk in the forest,
Seth & I,
& it's the time of year
when everything's brown:
the bark of the ponderosas,
the carpet of needle & cone,
the dead grass,
certain boulders, the earth itself;
even our dog is brown
& if she didn't move about
she couldn't be distinguished
from her surroundings.
