Temple of Love

As love grows from a foundation
Of beauty,  my gaze is in contrition
For those who live devoid of love.
Leave, like, live, lively, longing to love …

As each child, man, and woman need a hive
To promote, programing all with reverence.
A need to bathe in the certitude of being
Cocooned and cherished for just existing.

With each caress, word, gaze, request,
You’re inundated with warmth that’s best
Given in daily doses, so as not to fall
Into depression that’ll turn you into a ball.

Ode to Indigenous Women

Who are our greatest victims?

Our native women’s rapes?

Over half a century ago,

Their children were of age to

Be abused and killed

Then buried and abandoned.

Abandoned but not forgetting

As parents went unknowing 

Of their fates and kept hoping …

Their faith in governments

That oppressed them and forsakes

Their loved one’s destinies

That are only excavated on pleas …

And demands for knowledge 

Of their kismet to be able to judge,

Whether to move on, or …

Stay in Limbo’s nescience for 

Their needs are trivialized,

While others’ are optimized…

What’s needed to achieve equality

In attaining justice for all humanity

And not only a minority?

In honor of international women’s day against violence. This is only a part of all the violence that occurs against women in the world. Here’s to hoping for an elimination of such practices.

Longing

Soft lips murmur mostly
Love words that revel in a list
Of muffled sounds that greatly
Impact your softened heart.

Let the soft caresses linger
On the shell of your ear, jaw, cheek,
Chin, and plant a loving kiss per
Lip laying homage and creating a spark.

The electricity or chemistry starts
The love that deepens with decades passing
While building on the flashes
That began the journey to loving.

Depression.

Everlasting.

War

The people.

The economy
Fluctuates

Fragile Power

The flower’s fragile fragrance

Flits in the air with great flair.

Our brittle boastful beauty

Dies an easy death as its flaky.

Our self-esteem and worth

Are no better in a quick death.

Our faith is crushable in

Its flimsy strength that’s not portable.

Our relationships are just as tender

If not cared and sacrificed for.

It’s the easiest thing in life to let go,

And not struggle to overcome the foe.

Halloween Haiku


Scary homes with skeletons
Swinging from trees
Waving scarily in the breeze.

Fall colors

Fall Sunset

The flaming sun burnishes the sky

With reds and oranges

Spilling over tree tops

Like a flame of life; Let go and Fly!

Appreciation certificate from United Poets @Heart

For my Fibonacci poem, Lone

Lone

One
lonely
Boy, shy
Tries making
A friend flying
Into the unknown,
Lonely. One. Loneliest
Number ever. It tests hardest
When you’re surrounded by familys’
Best, whose envy alienates you farthest.

Standing alone with a whirring world
That’s confusing, struggling blind,
Into unknowns that surround,
Bind your moves. Loud
Is the thunder around
That drowns bad
Decisions
Needing
Greater
Care.

Sundance

The sun and moon have an understanding


Neither takes over the other by encroaching


On their exact time. Play their lullaby while boasing.

Award of participation in UPAH Facebook poetry club challenge

I’ve been posting my writing there as part of an international group of poets are given a prompt they need to follow. I was one of those honored with this plaque.

It’s very interesting to be a part of such groups as you grow from the variety of perspectives alone.

Thank you
