Quoted in The Grove
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.
~John Lennon

Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you or makes you happy.
~Robert Tew

The hardest thing in life is to know which bridge to cross and which to burn.
~David Russell

Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.
~John W Gardner

Morning Meet

Tiny wings flutter
soft winds brush my cheek
twinkling sounds ring
from the twittering beak

Brave little mister
dew drops on demand
ruby throat flashes
as he nears my hand

Fingertip offered
a half moon of sweet
golden sunbeams bright
morning meet complete

Prewritten:  coffee, vacant

~BarTalk:  Dual Doggerels Dueling

Pilfer Age

A storied Store famed in history
Now vacant of values no inventory
Emptied shelves shorn of everything loose
Fully attributed to internal abuse
Partners in crime don’t find it strange
Their Clerk on duty pockets the change
Forgot the coffee stored in the pantry
Caffeinated juice as weaponry
Opened eyes light up at the mention
A new selection and a coming election


Lethargy and Larceny

A poisoned drop
A cup of tea
Caused the cougher
To spray an employee
Infected auditors
Made old Univac antsy
Refused the extortionist’s
Blackmailing offer
The virus failed
Robbing their coffers
Their graves go empty
So it’s easy to see
Patience a virtue
Against thievery


5-7-5 x 3

news more grim each day
vacant stare of exhaustion
mainlining coffee
school starts house vacant
priorities shift today
coffee with my soaps
short stop for coffee
reread letter from true love
signed: No Vacancy
