Looking Over

Looking over, I watch you intently, Scribbling away at your pad, Curiosity crowds my thoughts, As your lips purse, As you pursue your vision, Looking over, I see you, All of you, In all your creative thought, Pouring over pad with pen, Ink pouring from the soul, giving the world your all, Tucked away in…

Man in a Hat

Trapped, boost up that radio mix, Tap that hammer in time, Smith out that ryhme little rapper, Unfold that golden wrap, Pocket that ticket, Take flight to the school of fame, Famous Chocolatier, You stand a tier above the rest, Your fame as fabulous as your headdress, Top hat, skippen tips, For burstin out kitkats,…

Your Word Against You

Buried, lost behind a wall of dirt and slime, Encroached, on Gods own time, What, is where we are going, Why, is when we were, How, is just because, Devil, trapped on his own dime, Evidence, twisted words and blurred, Help, not on your word.

Life springs forth from bubbling brook, Leaping to life like words from a book, Leading us past fork after fork, Leaping like a fish after a baited hook.


I also see Superman flying with his cape flowing behind him. Or, a man swimming underwater. My girlfriend thinks its an adult party. What do you think, care to share in the comments?

The Hole I Chase

What am I doing with my time?  Am I being productive?  Have I achieved anything today?  Did I keep myself on task long enough to have checked off the box that is next to my task?  What measure do I use to ensure I am productive?  Is the measure a meter of productivity or a…

Starting Idea

Today she walked the ledge, egged on by her friends. Her eyes averted from the water beneath, the rumbling vibrations surging through her legs from the dam’s twin generators. At the moment of peace she extends her arms in the breeze, bracing herself against the cold steel, grasping it in her strong palms. The once…
