Re: Wall.

Well, since I live on the border (in which happens to be consistently one of the "safest" cities per capita in the nation) and every day I can see our sister city Juarez from my perch on our deck, I guess I might be entitled to speak to this issue (besides having nothing else to do at the moment tha...

Re: THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT

That article pretty much says it all Mark. "Of all the mammals on Earth, 96% are livestock and humans, only 4% are wild mammals..." Like any mutation (which we are), we are changing our environment to suit us but stupidly, we are hastening our own demise.

THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT

The LONG view is what Stephen Hawking's brilliant mind took in account and many of his warnings/predictions about the future should certainly be considered by any thinking being. We are now in the age of Anthropocene (human accelerated caused environmental change) and our and all other species exist...

SooZen SeZ: Personal Notes For An Impersonal World On ART

March 12th, 2018, 06:14 am Being an artist is just the determination you are making things. ... Art is the ability to see inside of a thing. ... An object is only as beautiful as you think it is. ... Art is a nest, protection from outside forces. ... Collecting what is Art preserves our History and...

FORGET ME KNOT

FORGET ME KNOT I worry sometimes that you'll forget me a postscript in this play we call life "she was here...now she's not. O well" As I sit on the deck watching birds a hawk suddenly swoops down and a Inca dove flies straight into window right next to me, breaking it's neck she was here...now she'...

Re: High Desert Haiku

he laughs
politics on the tube
I shudder

the chill
seeps through my socks
hello down there!

dawn
the bare branches
caress the sky

one eyed finch
a pirate comes to the feeder
aye eye capt'n!

my old neighbor lights
cedar logs in his fireplace
he lives for today...

Re: One of my road conversations with Ned

You guys playing games again? Take out the trash instead... Hah! "Clarity, not always as easy as it seems..." is pretty clear and simple but easy? Who wants easy? Writing, as you all know, takes a lot of work, i.e. editing, clarifying (yep), and looking at it (what you write) from above...in other w...

Re: One of my road conversations with Ned

Frankly Mnaz...I'm confused (part of my natural state of mind, I grant you) but I don't know which character is talking by reading this. I was okay until after the "I can't find a place to live, I say" and then I wondered...who is saying what? and then I thought..."It'sa POEM SooZ!" so perhaps I sho...

TO BE OR NOT TO BE, THAT IS THE QUESTION

This poem was a stream of consciousness that erupted after sleeping and dreaming of the images that flashed before my eyes from every news outlet. Shakespeare was prescient me thinks and human history and our tendency towards violence never seems to resolve. Not that there isn't hope, I never stop ...

Re: “IT AIN’T OVER ’TIL IT’S OVER”

Thanks Arcadia and Sasha for your sentiments and replies! My other dog is a "Medical Alert" service dog who is very sensitive to my health issues (or anyone else in the family). He never steps on me, leans on me, jumps on the bed... but is very acutely aware of how I am feeling (my blood sugar, if I...

“IT AIN’T OVER ’TIL IT’S OVER”

“IT AIN’T OVER ’TIL IT’S OVER” (Yogi Berra) Journal Post, 6-20-17, [I don’t know where to start…(at the beginning Soo!)] It was a lovely weekend in Ruidoso spent with our friends. I had driven up earlier to be with the women as most of the men had to work. Cecil planned on hitching a ride with one o...
