Shades of Green

I long for shades of green The brown of summer has brought me down Only winter waters the grass. All other forms are artificial. The green of Ireland comes through wet rain upon rain. Where is the sun? Brown and sun Or green and rain Those are the choices. march comes in like a LION It roars with... Sign in to see full entry.

Speaking

I hear you speaking but I don't understand You say that you love me but leave me all alone. I hear you speaking but I don't understand You say that you need me but never call when you have a problem. I hear you speaking but I don't understand You say that I am special but spent all of your money on... Sign in to see full entry.

The Cool Winter Breeze

The cool winter breeze never gets so cold that plants wilt. It just disappoints my northern heart that wants warm tropical breezes and cloudless days. I long for the soft humid warm nights of the tropical ocean. But I am 200 miles north. This is Mazatlan not Puerto Vallarta. The grounds of my prison... Sign in to see full entry.

The turquoise sea the summer sun my tan skin naked on the ivory beach. The cold rain the grey sky the brown leaves squish under my green wellies. The orange sun the red clay my black skin covered with wet slip as i turn the potter wheel. Pink blossoms carpet the brick walk of the college campus a... Sign in to see full entry.

i am your biggest fan, among many fans. i watch your steps into recovery with joy and pride. For with your help i stay focused and with my help you stay clean.

These addicts

in recovery have hearts opened by brokeness and healing, self loathing and humility, pain and relief. i step into their circle, feeling only half a part my drug alcohol. But they see only another hurting human being. We are so afraid of the world and each other. Reality a painful shock and the... Sign in to see full entry.

Too wonderful

Your works are too wonderful for me. I see the stars in the vast sky, Too numerous to count. I look out on the ocean which goes out with a stripe of deep blue. I walk through the canopy of trees which cathedrals only imitate, and I wonder. What sort of God creates such things. Then my wife gives... Sign in to see full entry.

We sat on the front porch.

The breeze of a fan made it comfortable. On a quiet afternoon, only one or two people stopping by. The early birds have come and gone, buying up the bargains. I am tired, but sitting on the porch relaxes me. my only friend is busy speaking to he insuranc man. The rest ae companionable stranngers. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Green grass

is such a luxury in a drought. Hot sun and no rain make brown grass. Necessities are vegetable gardens. Tended with care. An eye open for mature vegetables. So much time is spent on cultivating grass. So little on grown vegetables. I feel bloated and empty at the same time. Look good on the outside... Sign in to see full entry.
