Mandolyn ...


cry me a creek, not a river


unless you can sail a boat
down a ripple
that is made for a crippled wind
spin my wit
on the dance floor, trance floor
keep the door open-

away from the sand
in the glass- it keeps dripping

the faster it moves
the more i intrude
on how much time death
plans on taking-

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
