Well, if you went to my haiku blog you can tell I haven't posted for a whil

I can't believe I did that! Oh well, here is a poem I recently wrote and it is actually in my poetry blog! FALLEN HEROES Everyone was sleeping as the smoke curled through the air. No one watched the flame flicker below the smoke wisps there. Yet stirred there, one lone soul, whose watch he was... Sign in to see full entry.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Mom and Dad I’m here to say I wish you Happy New Years Day! I won’t make a promise now Then later have to break my vow! I’ll just thank you for last year, For the smiles and for the tears That are just part of growing up; More smiles than tears with any luck! Growing more each... Sign in to see full entry.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! SHORT AND SWEET! I really do not have much time To pen even these few short lines. The gates have burst, the flood pours out. Deluge of work I speak about. The drought, I'm glad, to see it go. How long this lasts, nobody knows. But 'til the tide recedes a bit, For writing rhyme,... Sign in to see full entry.

My son is home from Iraq three days and his dog dies.

Figure that one out. I kept that dog from running away for a year. Took care of it and his other one, plus the one he got for me for fathers day. He comes home, plays with her, loves her and she him, and she goes out and hangs herself by accident on the fence and he has to find her that way. Knowing... Sign in to see full entry.

On the subject of Friendship!

FRIENDSHIPS I read my book, it’s chapter last, and put it then away; Intending to retrieve it soon and read again some day. But life is complicated, and days and weeks fly past. Of all the things I find to do, to read my book was last. Now my days are settled. I’ve done the things I must. I grasp... Sign in to see full entry.

TO MOM in case you missed it at Ypunday's corner!

TO MOM I know I’m an investment of time and love and tears, You’ve done your best to raise me And protect me all these years. The words of wisdom offered were not always well received, But you are the foundation Of all that I believe. When fever was the battle or bullies were about, You were my...

IT'S A LITTLE MORBID BUT IT'S WHAT WAS IN THERE! MY FUNERAL Yesterday I was witness to a most macabre event. I recall a long wood box and Stayed to see where this went. The room was full of people. There was not one dry eye. Not one to dawdle mentally I presumed someone had died. I looked to see... Sign in to see full entry.

ARBORETUM EMPERORS - An expansion on a thought!

At Ypunday's haiku blog, I started my entry with a poetic phrase, more for fun than anything. Upon read and re-read, I felt perhaps I had done those words a grave injustice in bantering them so lightly. So with further reflection and humbleness of heart, I did pen the following for your persual:... Sign in to see full entry.

THE CHALLENGE I am beset with hardships That would fell a weaker man. Possessing knowledge of my Source of strength, I lack understanding of my knowledge. Mine eye gifted, on chance occasion, With glimpses of that ray of light That so rarely pierces The dark abyss of mine sorrows, Yet with such... Sign in to see full entry.

FALLING LEAF MOON Crystalline kaleidoscopes Embrace the pumpkin vine As Jack Frost paints his pictures Across the leaves sublime. The wheat is gathered in And the corn has filled the crib. The harvest now is over Just as winter makes her bid. All the grapes have rendered Up the sweetest autumn wine.... Sign in to see full entry.
