mornings are cooler
tomatoes still producing
the circumference shrinks down
but the taste holds fast and sweet
there is truth in the weather
she never lies, she bares herself
each morning, we feel her chill
time is her paramour , her seasoning
sprinkled over the plants in the garden
they know all to well their fate
the withering that comes with september
and october's yellowing, the orange of pumpkin
I don't remember any more who I was
a new man full of medicinal concoctions
parades around the house pretending to be me
he's slower and more awkward , he bumps
into the doorway, his perceptions are off
but he tries nonetheless, he smiles nonetheless
he is a man for all seasons despite his alterations
muscle memory and routines fake their way thru the day
nothing to complain about, just noticing the changes
I am merely a scribe with fingers that still type
the odd thoughts that embed themselves in this head
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

caught
held with appreciation
tossed back
I
am merely a scribe with fingers that still type
the odd thoughts that embed themselves in this head
medicinal me I swallow 20 pills and capsules a day
14 in the morning if I keep on doing it the doctor say if I keep balling the jack I might live another day
can't complain when everything's ok

at our finger tips.....perpetually
"GO!"...the power to "JAM"....
any time of day or night, when
the feeling hits ya just right
all ya gotta do is click it on &
hopefully someone's gonna
join on in and the word will be
long gone, riding the cyber waves
creating a lil bit of that old purple
haze, right now that 2-way radio's
ringing in my ears, but if any of ya
wanna jam?.....just let meknow when,
I'll be right back here..................wired

We continue
Kiss upon her cheek
As in our minds, she is here
Her words sing loud and clear
We may not know where now
Yet I hear her as ever before
There is no empty space

Feeling the universe calling
But unable to facilitate
I’m wired but the signal is wavering
Where to begin?
The message didn’t say
There is no empty space

many poets have gone away
to that place where oxygen isn't necessary
but there is one that didnt simply go to sleep in her own bed
she came face to face with the oldest evil known to man
hatred
hatred born in ignorance and simplistic nonsense
her mindfulness wasn't enough
her peaceful demeanor was ignored
by barbarians
men and women without souls and eyes
without sense for the sentient
so smug and self-righteous
so eager to stop the hearts of innocent strangers
anxious to play deadly games not on a video screen this time
but for real, with the same killing mindset
and total disregard for trying to understand
that many on the other side of the fence only want peace
oblivious that some have transcended their childish simplicity
monsters with thoughtless notions and devotion
to following orders
zombies
zombies
mindless hateful zombies
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

the perpetual jam must go on like the wire-man
must go on about the stars and the orbs beyond
so I add to his legacy and type what comes to mind
because to me it s not so much the words as the effort
there is something special about the continuation
words strung out become the connection between
life as we know it and life that we can only imagine
I share myself with you and you do the same when you can
It is a story you see, the lore of poets, the jones of creation
this you see is more than a jam, it's a marmalade
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

winter
short days, long nights
cold and wet
gloom and desperation
the arctic wind
claws at the cabin
finding its way in
through the cracks -
so throw another log on the fire
another loaf on the table
refill your goblets
and hoist them in remembrance
of those who once sat at our table
now their chairs are empty
silent
so we jam in their stead
sharing words
memories
essence
reliving warmer times
trusting that they shall return
in due course
.
"Falsehood flies, the Truth comes limping after it." - Jonathan Swift, ca. 1710

wired haiku
a combo....
dino writing in lower case
sans punctuation.....
lightning rod blowing
his magic flute
all on a celestial stage
the continuation
of tangible bones
going to dust. renewal
the spirit is electric
it touches our memories
with fingers of pure energy
fingers of love and respect
a tap on the shoulder
a twirl around the room
they inspire me to keep at it
because that's we do
that's what they did
creation, determination
inspiration
this is our home
just as real as the one where
I sleep
our home away from home
some poet once said
or I guess it was a poet
or someone unsatisfied
with the confines
of wood and brick
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading
