Not Original


Seldom is an idea original.
Google shows us that
plagiarism or messages
bear repeating
until we final learn.

A room is completely dark
yet there is a light bulb
waiting to be lit
to banish the darkness
making the way clear
for he who’s willing
to throw the switch.

The End


Period, the end, finished.
I’m always disappointed
when I finish a good book
for I want more
hours gobbling up
a page-turner story
people-a never ending
source of fiction.

Dog Love

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

People loving their dog
instead of other people
makes sense to me
for our dogs aredo
non-judgmental
loving
happy when we come home
doesn’t mind when we snore
loves us just as we are
always forgives

I want to learn
to how to love
as well as my dog

Blame

It’s not my fault
doesn’t matter
the deed is done
finger-pointing
instead of fixing
is pointless

Listen


Our ears are listening
but our mind misrepresents
more self-deception

Modern Plague

Water, air, sunshine
polluted, spoiled, ruined
what once was pure and free
now squandered
by greed and indifference

Too many people
gobbling up resources
unsustainable living
modern plague
to depopulate the earth.

Could there be
a better way?

Searching

S earching
E verywhere
E veryone
K eeps forgetting

Don’t look for love outside
it is a mighty magnet inside
true love begins within
attracting like energy
fulfilling God’s promise
of love everlasting
which comes from the Lord
flows through us
like a light through a lantern
out into this world of darkness
bringing illumination to all
who are willing receive.
