When Evening Meets the Daylight – A Haiku
When evening meets Earth’s
Daylight, Peace is the horizon,
Fear takes flight…We sigh.
The May Pole – School Celebration
The May Pole, a celebration of Spring,
Of things to come, of things to bring
And respite in the glare of the Sun.
To decorate the schoolyard with fun,
Dagwood and Blondie – A Diamante
Dagwood was funny and hyper-active,
Sunning, cunning, and protecting his backyard turf.
Blondie was always hiding, resting and waiting to eat.

A Tribute To “Butch”, Vernon Elborne Wade, III
A brother to some, a father to many,
Butch never thought his call was too small or uncanny.
With him, you never were alone,
the comfort he would […]
The Grace To Blossom
He gave me another chance,
by grace, to blossom;
to breathe again.
knowing I would fall,
he held the seeds of my new birth,
and set them in a dry place.

There is a pervasive presence of fascism in your poem – an awakening in which we all must trust in and not ignore the signs. Thank you for sharing. The visions of women many times capture the hues and auras sometimes hidden from the third eye of men.
After much contemplation, I have chosen:
I Talk To Trees

Very few acknowledge or even discern the completeness of our initial innocence and the beginning of corruption when we are eventually introduced to “Candy (rots your teeth!) World.” You say it with eyes wide open, too late for Adam and Eve, who did walk around all nebulous and naked. Instantly, they saw their ugly and tried to hide…[Read more]
Wow! This is the knee deep broken down to the most intricate detail of anguish not addressed or valued. This poem is a love song that you have written with honor deserved but still not served. I thank you, for the beauty of each line and verse is “poetic justice!”
Your poem is a personal journey, and coming from a large family of nine children, two parents and two grandparents, we lined up regularly not knowing the charge – accomplishes in an unknown crime. Most of the time my oldest brother took the case for us. He too found his sanctuary in music. I t must have been guilt from his “Big…[Read more]
You left out humanism – euphemism! There is no way we can keep our ducks all in a row; there are precepts, laws, systems, doctrines, unpleasant stances and immutable truths that drive the lives we live. Stripped from our skin and the breath we breathe – the spirit remains: We are one.
