Sevenling (The Nearness of Ewe)

The nearness of ewe makes me nervous,
and Bovine are fine in a pinch,
Horses can nag while nibbling their feed bag.

Animal magnetism is attractive,
releasing the raucous beast within.
I majored in animal husbandry,

until I got caught at it one day!

SEVENLING (Michel de Notre Dame)

Michel de Notre Dame presumed,
Edgar Cayce so did delve.
The Mayans calendar predicts: 12/21/2012.

Indian Medicine men concur,
with the Bible's Revelation,
of the timing of the end of days final conflagration.

I don't know about you guys, but Armageddon underground!

A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
but the glory of it’s in the riding.
And so to with life, it’s just like that horse,
a horse is a horse, of course. Of course,
it can throw you off with a mighty force
and to get right back on takes deciding,
a horse is a horse, of course, of course,
and the glory of life’s in the riding.


The clouds are thick and threatening,
the air is crisp and cool,
the rain has fallen three straight days,
the kids are back to school.
The nights are in the thirties,
the mornings full of fog,
I've had enough of Summer
this weather's for the dogs.


She's quite adept at texting,
she tweets and twitters well,
she's all of sweet sixteen years old
as far as I can tell.
She carries herself older,
she says just what she means,
cut out of her mother's mold,
a communication queen.
My youngest daughter, rife with chatter,
I'd take her phone, but it won't matter.

Bare your double edged wit
and brandish it like Excalibur.
Neither king, nor knave falls
when wielding that kind of hardware!

A poet. Lost in the myriad
of humanity a lone voice
seeking an echo, a pulse,
a sign of redemption,
not to mention
verification of the ability
to be heard above
the cacophony of the
surrounding seas
of muted muse.


Friends come and go,
return and re-leave,
but you have to believe,
they are always a
relief. If a friend
in need is a friend indeed,
then is a friend that's clever
a friend for a long time?
Never lose friends,
just misplace them; don't replace them.

Back to basics,
bare bones,
rituals, habits,
Back to the grind.
Out of my mind?
That's a given!
