Fool's gold, like gold teeth
Better get plastic fillings.
Or aluminum.

The rivers that fall:
We call them waterfalls here
Or steps of wetness

There was a time when...
There was no time! Then came we
Humans. Hectic stress.

Messing things up much.
Our days more slow. Remorseful.
Fast and furious.

Live by the second
Helping. Help! The world. Our world.
Against it. Friendlies.

Fire. What goal do
We have? By Neptune's beard, we all
Fall. There was a time...

I'm getting published.
To ensure it won't be read,
I posted it here.

Taking that first step
Out of your front door today
Starts your adventure.

If you are lucky,
What you do along the way
Will fulfill your soul.

But before you go,
Remember to pack a lunch
And your trusty long-sword.

Ward off evil spirits come
To claim my lost soul

The life that is known
Is much more valuable
Than the one unknown.

There are unknowns and...
There are Unown's! There's a catch!
Rarest of the rare.

The unknown may be
frightening, but adventure
calls those who dare dream.

The sun comes in like
A thieving thief! In the night,
And steals my darkness

In the beginning
There was nothing but darkness.
I was good with that.

But some deity
then proclaimed "Let there be Light",
and messed it all up.

Now that I can see
The truth of all around me,
I hide in shadows.

Safely in darkness,
Where most mortals fear to tread,
I prepare for war.

It wasn't my choice;
I was here first, and as such,
I will be here last.

It's a waiting game;
All light, no matter how bright,
one day fades away.

First of all, I must
compliment you on how well
crafted your work is.

The origin of
mankind is in darkness - the
womb, the night, the cold.

But light is as the
future: a chance to advance
ideas, tales, truth.

That I choose to live
in Maine means more than that I'm
from Massachusetts.

I still like my job,
Though now have daily headaches,
One of the draw backs.

Very nice indeed!
That is why we fight our greed
To make life so free

To make poetry
Lines sometimes enlighten me
Keep my mind off sleep

Summer days, rainy
Grays, wondering why I breathe
See the light in each

And every strange place
Flee dreams and delve right into
'Nother bright haiku

Women's marches. The
world has a joint cause. It is
not The States' cause.

Yes! True bliss exists!
It drifts through thick mists rich in,
Uplifting things. Zing.

Perpetual bliss
Is a faithless dream obtained
By true ignorance.

The hollow tirade
Spoken by our new leader
Fans the flames of bliss.

Pretty words deluge
The ears of the blind faithful,
hearing what they want.

Rhetoric replaces
The need for facts and substance;
Makes them all feel good.

Anger without cause,
Ignorance now flourishes
In half of our land.

They all will follow
The hollow man's vacant words
Blindly and faithfully.

If we're not careful,
History is repeated-
1933

My apologies;
It was not my intention
To hijack this forum.

I just tend to write
about what I feel deep inside;
It is cathartic.

Lately I'm gloomy,
With all that swirls around me;
Winter chills my heart.

I know there's goodness
Out in the world, in the light -
Just can't see it yet.

But I will say this:
I know that in this forum
I am among friends.

And that is enough
To keep me going each day;
For that, I thank you.

I have history
On repeat. It was better.
Then, I think. Sometimes.

Then I realize
I remember only the
Goods. So maybe not.

Up early today
So early the morning sun
Hasn't yet happened

The world is a haze
Gray and full of doubt, surreal
And morning beauty

Frost like new snowfall
Birds stir, words stir, first light creeps
Think I'll fall asleep

The sun glares at me,
A bright, cheerful happy face.
Time to go to bed.
