    How exquisitely beautiful is the autumn treeIn

    it's dying..Like a love that seems to endYet, perhaps only fading into dormancy.Just as that tree shall burst forth into lifeon some warm spring day.Perhaps that love also never quite dies,But is lying in quietude, stillness..Waiting to be reignited in some brilliant ray of...

    Lost and found

    I came out of the milk-house wearing a old coat with strips of bright red material pinned (with big, yellow ducky diaper pins) to the hand-me-down, mismatched buttoned coat.  The red is to protect me from deer hunters should I get out near the big woods...

    For anybody who even cares: a status update on

    my fiction writing project ---------------------- Last night I did pretty well. I get ideas for this project in snippets - usually at inconvenient times, like in the shower or driving to work. So as soon as I can while it's fresh in my mind, I scribble it down on a piece of...

    Melancholy A cold wet window On a cold wet

    Miserére Nos Dominus

    The weary sun this day does not rise  as the earth is rent in twain by a booming blare spawned from a sickly horn. Ragged hands wrapped in beads of Rosary scrape their way up the fleshy earth.   A man near the opened earth, of no religion does he ascribe who days ago did laugh...

    His eyes see right through me,

    into the deepest part of me. I can't tell if he likes what he sees or if I should be ashamed of myself. Why do I have to hide? Why must I have to lie...to everyone. I'll spare a hundred hearts to break mine a hundred times.

    I've been writing ever

    since I was a boy. Only recently (2013) have I published anything for the general public. My series is called 'Detective Kids'. It originally came to me back in 2000 and I have been building on it ever since. It is both in paperback and ebook.

    Infinite possibilities only meet

    when minds can think infinitely. But I don't need your mind to be infinite, it can be simple in form of expression but complex in feeling. Complex in what you feel and simple in your touch. Simple enough to let the complexities surge through my skin when we touch. How can...

    Hell can be found in a strange place,

    somewhere before a peak and an end that never comes. And down the road where the flowers smell like sweet stout on the streetcurb a madman warns the world; some things are too frail to break, some things are too light to carry.

    I have an idea for a fiction project.

    With a beginning, middle, and end. Usually it's missing a timeline, but not this one. . Now if I can keep my adult-onset ADD in check...and summon up the self-discipline to actually *work on it* and *finish* it....this could be cool!

    I was a dreamer in a past life,

    I was a killer in another. I was a psychopathic madman, And an angry tyrant mother. I am a prisoner of time, I am a mass of contradictions. I am the writer of lies, And deceptive truthful fictions.

    It's been quite a long time

    Coming To Terms With A Facet Of Human Nature.

    for answer's I guess everything happens for reasons. Do you wish you could start over? To bad you get only one chance. Like a rocket ready to explode this is a unlit fuse with a string so long. Clinging on to hope we'll where's the hope? I guess we can't all get what we want.

    Cobalt blue stained eyelids wrinkle,
