Farewell and hail

The one resolution i swore to keep was the 2012 WordPress 365 blog challenge – 366 as it was leap year – and with this post I’ve accomplished it.

— the finish line reached
resolution accomplished
penned one post a day

I pull once again an old poem from my archives which speaks to me now, as it did when I wrote it so many years ago.

Old Year, New Year.

Old and gray – tired and worn
many died – more were born
much was said – so little done
with the rising and setting of each sun.

Farewell to thee with tears we say
and greet the new with laughter gay

So much could, should, would have done
but alas, I’d just begun and the year was gone.

And so, today I make firm resolution
to do much more by new year’s conclusion.

Happy New Year Y’all.


New paths beckon

walkabout beckons
restlessness strains at the bit
to take unknown paths


New car named Wolf

wolf sleek and silver
runs rides rules the very wind
he is my new broom


Filling the white space

white space taunts my pen
my épée etching each word
slowly on the page

words marching cadence
along pale blue journal lines
and then there was light



dogma once believed
shed along childhood’s roadside
solitary hence


Laughter burns calories

laughter speeds the heartP1000488

deepens the breath releases

endorphins burns fat

get a daily dose

so read funny watch funny

damn it all just laugh

Path to dream

my hand hold the stone
I chant the invocations
my transport to dreams


The mall

from the very air
seductive scents surround me
sights and sounds assault

mothers scold children’s
high pitched squeals excited for
christmas coming



frontiers disappear
we’re slowly killing nature
one tree at a time


Flying with eagles

flew with the eagles
high above earth’s azure skies
my mighty wings pushed

on unseen currents
soar unfettered and free too
soon return to me
