Sonnet 31 'How High the Bar That Makes a Poet Real'

How high the bar that makes a poet Real!
(He walks in mists, and shadows of himself)
To be a poet, is to burn with steel
Set short time in the forge, the lesser self!
He brands his heart with fiery words, set down
And burns his mind with thinking, ‘til it glows,
He hopes, of sonnets, his will be the Crown,
And hopes that all the brilliance of light, shows!
But, oftener, he writes a humble piece,
A few words cramped into a simple form,
But somehow, in his feelings, a release!
Yes, humble-bumble often is the norm.
And that high bar, he reaches seldom, and
Leaves barefoot footprints in the fruity sand.

The Wisdom of Wine and Gin

My hair has receded and my belly grown fat
There’s hair growing in my ears and I don’t like that
My joints ache all the day and I have troubles with peeing
I’m tired all the time and have glasses for seeing
Gravity has taken over putting life in a downward spin
No wonder I enjoy drinking a little wine and gin

Space Cadet

You'll find it is a good idea,
now and then,
to look at the bigger picture:
see with a broader view
the workings of your fellow men.
A word of advice, if I may,
please, don't stay too long,
be sure to always come back soon!
One learns next to nothing
about mankind
by looking at the earth
while standing on the moon.

NOTE: Another oldie.

The Legs Are Last To Go

Aunt Ruthie used to sing and dance
a jolly way to find romance
she said one thing that you should know

“The legs are last to go”
                         “The legs are last to go”

She’d sing her praises right out loud
and wear her stockings high and proud
she still had much that she could show

                           The legs are last to go

The years roll by and beauty fades
and yet her gams, she still parades
she’s 83 and don’t cha know
her legs were last to go

                         Her legs were last to go

A Headlight On My Deer

There is no right way...
there are only wrong
ways – there is no 
Luke-warm love, for
love is not a portion
nor temperature...not
a two-step – but a toward
You Step. And we know love
when we see it...let it 
happen~yes, free it!

Too often we flee it;
failures leave a lasting
mark – making us Leary
of future spark – once a 
flame ignited, and then
smothered out, can leave
a nasty ash; better to make
the dash~yes, run. Before
the heart is barbecued~ 

But no one has ever won
if not a wager on the board
of life – just ask my very
wise wife – who made a purse
out of a sow's ear...her headlight
on my deer.

Forever a Fool

This is too hard

I don’t want to do it

There is simply no way

For me to get through it

Though, often, we confuse

What is hard with what stimulates

We don’t lack the ability

Rather the time that it takes

If we do not practice

Reform what is tough

Then nothing we do

Will prepare us enough

So don’t do what is hard

Do not follow this rule

Never stimulate and prepare

Remain, forever, a fool.

The Windmills of Babel

Build them wider, taller
let us reach for the sky

when we run out of bird's 
we'll clip angels on the fly

90,000 lb. sperm whale
wandering, searching for 
his misplaced tail...

but elite global outlets will 
never fail....only us commoners
stuck in the dark, our vehicles
needing, only one gear~ Park!

His Own Writer

Don't corner the writer – put
him in a cage and poke; you
like Shakespeare...then read
Shakespeare! And let the writer
be his own rhyming or ill rhymed-bloke. 
To me, mistakes, imperfections – 
spontaneous glitches, as I prefer to
call them – send me into joyful stitches; 
a fresh exhibition of relatable nature – 
the transformation of perfection into 
Human Interest.  So, let the writer
be his or her own protagonist, or Free-willed
blessed Nemesis. Write and read whatever
tickles you pickles you...and let Mike be Mike, 
and Jane
be a literal-pain 
to her personable like.

Intelligent Life

Before leaving earth
we should seek to find 
intelligent life…if

we are to identify it elsewhere;

for the universe is
an obvious abundance

while man has yet
to expose his own….

The Patience of a Frog

Across the pond float lily pads
Upon one sat a frog,
He looked rather startled
His eyes were wide agog.

Had he seen a stalking heron,
Was he scared to move, thought I
Then to my surprise, his tongue shot out
And caught a passing fly.

That wise old frog had patience
It comes to those who wait,
For that fly, it came to him
And that wise old frog, he ate.

Some Thoughts

God believes in term limits – 
no surprise, Congress does not;

The soul responds immediately
to truth – while policy requires
endless debating...

Good needs no rehearsing – 
unlike evil, always heavily
scripted and eternally

God's Blessing and Calamity

I comb my hair
to fit my head~now more
a chore of strands; walk
with my feet at different
angles, they seeming to like
it that way, making amusing
duck-tracks in the snow, steps
for the fox to sniff and blow, 
and a place where the bear can
snort and go – I cannot write
like Shakespeare...but I doubt
that he could write like me –
each of us having a personal
voice, God's blessing and
and calamity....

My Wife

I would take cute
over profound, any-day;
good feeling-full over
meaningful – God over
science, and my wife
when it comes to dinner;

I will take thick over thinner,
when it comes to gravy and
mashed potatoes; God over
politics, when it comes to
getting wife's
opinion when it comes to
right and wrong;

Beauty wins hands-down,
when it comes to images
and lyrical-sounds; God
on all my paths and grounds
as opposed to stone saints
and preaching clowns – my
wife's love, over a world of
wealth; without love, nothing
of true value, nor health –

When It Comes To the Travails

when it comes to the travails
of the human heart
logic is a poor study
as Diogenes' wisdom gathers a lantern
searching in vain
there is a deeper reasoning
among the bats gathered in the belfry
ratiocination resting on a slippery slope
grasping at a coherent balance
amidst a pyroclastic flow
and although it makes little sense
it never really had to
the sensory faculty never met
with any goal other than
leap before the bottom falls out
and why Vulcans put forth their take
live long and prosper
it keeps the children coming
as well as the undying poetry written
in song as DJs are given to say
this tune is dedicated to
the one that got away

The Little Ghost

There once was a sad little Ghost, 
teased for his fright-less boo -- 
unable to scare anyone, in fact,
attracting many a bull 
(sounded like an amorous moo) 

Oh, that poor little ghost! -- his white sheet always blue; 
Maytag man suggested bleach: agitated back and forth~ 
Screech! Screech! Screech!…

(The saga of the Sad Little Ghost. Add to the saga in your comment: for example, the boo to the owl sounded like he showed up with his Plagiarism lawyer~ etc.... The Witch heard the call as brew, or stew, so she got off her broom to prepare more gloom....)

Fake Words

Fake Words – Zamreen Zarook

God have given us mouth,
Not to speak to north and south,
Tongue is given under an oath,
So it’s our duty to protect them both.

Girls chat fake with boys,
Having a notion that the boys are toys,
They often make varied noise,
Thinking to keep a trap on handsome guys.

Boys are also human being,
So it’s not possible being clean,
Things varies in the way they are seen,
So positive thinking will make you keen.

Boys’ minds are pure,
As it is pure bio,
So don’t try to pour vino,
Which will take decades to get cure.

- Seven Years and Big Brother -

I am 7 years old and have already learned a lot
as ...
"God's wife is called Godmother
  She is the mother of all her grandchildren:
  Noah, Jesus and Santa Claus "

This is my second year at school
"All children start with clean hands"

(laughter ......... :)

By the way
  ... do you know?
"Grandmothers have very big bra
They are so big that
I get the whole butt and two knees into one bowl
... the second my brother can use a cradle "

From the child's mouth :)

A Bug In a Bath


I'm what you call a bug
When humans see me they go UHG

Humans don't care about my needs
Or my sometimes good deeds

But such bothersome things
Roll right off my wings

When I can dip my feet
Blistered from the heat 

In the bird bath for which I'm looking
When on a hot day I'm cooking

But the frog over there
Is beginning to stare

I'm sure he sees me as a meal that's free

So I'll jump quick in this pool
And swim fast like a fool 


A nice cooling splash
And this bug revives fast

Teenage Years

In a long ago day no term such as teenager 
was inferred
Upon reaching pubescence adulthood was 
No separate entity were teenage years 
thought to be
Anymore than 20 or 30 even 93
The business of giving separate age a place 
on life's map
Has turned out to be nothing but a load 
of crap
"I'm a teenager" they will wail and whine
Implying "your life is less valuable than 
"I'm your replacement" is what they're 
trying to say
But they should at their feet what's crawling 
on the floor  
Their own replacements will be ready a couple
years or more

Two Grey Hairs of Wisdom

I have just two grey hairs in my mustache
That keep growing back,under my nose
Why there's just two
I haven't a clue
Soon to be joined by many more,I suppose

They say grey hair grows with wisdom
But with just two hairs under my nose?
No matter what I do
They keep growing through
The beginning of wisdom for me,I suppose

Two grey hairs I've plucked and cut
From my mustache under my nose
For now there's just two
Soon to be joined by quite a few
A lesson learned in wisdom for me,I suppose
