Rona and the Moonless Night

“Oh, no”, she cried from quickly waking, Feet were freezing, knees were shaking. Potty time was overtaking on this moonless night. But the room was dark and hard to see, The door, the floor, or anything. And soon she was imagining a multitude of frights. She thought she saw a horde of goblins lined ...

The Meaning of Life

We searched the sands of every beach, Of every coast and shore. We climbed the cliffs beyond our reach, And scanned the ocean floor. And all the sages lost and learned, With all the pages tossed and turned, In all their phases, frost to burn, Have had their guess to give. We heard the sermons priest...

Do You Have The Time?

Consider the clock As it ticks and it tocks, Casting the count that it keeps. It carries along, Like a stream that is strong, And it's calm as it constantly creeps. The hands will not hurry From fun or from fury, Though faster it feels that it flies. Nor will it wane, When awaiting the rain, In a dr...

Temptation of Christ

For forty days and forty nights, He fasted by religious rites; No nourishment sustaining him beneath the burning sun. And so it passed that he should meet, Amidst the desert's scorching heat, The mastermind of all deceit, the undeserving one. The devil, in his deft demeanor, Noticed that the Lord wa...

Contradicting Keats

When I have fears that I may fail to die, After all my mind has given to my pen, No worldly wonders left there to defy; No answers to the mysteries within. What worry it would be on how I fared, For truly it's lowly life to live, To think that this is all that chance had spared; To know that this is...

Paper Cell

"Give me more", my hunger rages, 8 Write the rhymes and rip the pages. 8 Leave the rhythm, change the rhyme, 7 But wait, a syl-label was lost. 8 I think the comma helped this time. 8 And hyphens are a petty cost. 8 Now change the rhythm, but keep with the rhyme. 10 The line was sped, so not much los...

God Switch

King upon a cross,
And forgotten gods displaced.
Former ways made false,
And new doctrines are embraced.
Or enforced by sword and mace.

Jesus was a Jew,
But his features were defaced.
Eyes were painted blue,
Olive skin had been replaced.
By the hue of my own race.

Ghost in the Graveyard

Behind the old church lies a garden of souls, Buried and rooted they rest in their holes. Most I had known from my earliest years, Others, so ancient, I shed no more tears. Some, so far fled that their headstones are worn, So weathered you can't read the dates they were born. Some are quite fresh, c...

Leaving Home

So many years have come and gone away, And now the time has come that I should leave; The sanctuary where I was to pray, The haven where my heart was free to grieve. I never had to front or fog the facts. It knew me as I knew myself to be, And as I wait to walk upon the tracks, I feel as though it's...

Monuments

While visiting the grave of a friend I lost to God, I found there one marked only by a tag. Set in the sand on a thin steel rod, With all the posture of a paper bag. I paused, but soon after, passed this pathetic sight, My thoughts on my own death to be, And hoped deep within, when I’d lose my light...
