Broken Possibilities

It's simply the not knowing,
That causes so much pain.
The questions left unanswered,
The riddles of the game.
I'd rather hear the word good-bye,
Then I can stop resisting.
For when the answer is unclear
I wonder what I'm missing.
End it now, stau...

Nightmare

Meaningless moon-dipped dreams
in chaotic surroundings.
Childhood rituals of chastity and love
wrapped in a butterfly kiss.
Silky lavender wildflowers watch
with leafless skeleton trees
as ghosts of drifting clouds
are crossing the countryside ton...

Love Surprise

Spring is in the air, life begins anew.
If life has one beginning, I began with you.
Like a barren desert, I existed without life.
I searched the world for love, finding only strife.
You waited while I wandered , a smile upon your face.
As if you ...

Go West, Young Man (or north, or east, or south)

I've a story for you
I swear that it's true
It's about the queer folk
in the town where I grew
There's old Willie McFee
Who one day swallowed a bee
He screamed and he yelled
and ran into a tree
Sweet Sally Anne Blye
One day swatted a fly
Then she ...

I Hope It Storms When I Die

Some people really hate rainstorms
 I think they're not right in the head
I always laugh at those sillies
Who run to hide under their bed

Windy Days

Windy days are best of all
 They help to cool the heat
They stir the leaves upon the ground
Make them dance to a happy beat

Fairy Advice

If fairies flit around your ear
And whisper words, then disappear
Can you say you truly hear
I simply do not know

Their words are soft and oh so sweet
Like candy for your ears; a treat
I hear they make your life complete
With advice as they go

At the End of the Day

Butterflies sing lovely songs not heard by human ears
And bumblebees are in a rush they don't have time for tears
Down by the brook the meadowlark strikes up a happy tune
The sun is low and ere too long will make way for the moon

A WInter Romance

A little girl stands on a snowy hill'
and watches clouds rool by
She sees a bunny, a frog and a bird
For imagination has captured her eye

I Saw A Soldier Just Today

I saw a soldier just today
Though he wasn't standing tall
He was resting in a fancy box
For this soldier gave his all

Other soldiers bore him home
To his final resting place
They proudly marched side by side
Though they'd never seen his face

Finding Happiness

The trick to finding happiness
Was never taught in school
It's easy to find happiness
If you know the simple rule

A Roaming Gnome

A gnome went for a walk one day
Along the garden path
He saw another standing guard
Next to the new birdbath

Being a sweet and friendly sort
He stopped to pass the time
The other said no single word
Are there such as gnomish mimes?

Old Habits

While I kept her at a distance
It was easy to forget
Just how much she means to me
And how much I regret
Five long years have rolled away
On my solitary path
Now she's come back into my life
My heart has done the math
Love's embers are still glowi...

The Results of True Love

Three little fairy girls
Cute as can be
The triplets Fitzpower
Joy and laughter times three

With the scent of wildflowers
Infused in their hair
And a love of the earth
For things growing they care

I Remembered

I lay alone in my bed last night
Alone with my thoughts of you
I remembered brushing your warm brown hair
And your twinkling eyes of blue

A Spivey Night Before Christmas (WARNING Long and a bit Raunchy)

T'was the night before Christmas
out at Spivey's deer camp
We was sittin' round the campfire
a'belchin up spam

We was oilin' our rifles,
and sharpenin' our knives
We was laughin' and drinkin',
no kids and no wives

A New Fairy Tale Begins

Way back in the shade of a spreading oak tree
In a wood where the vines are quite dense
Stands a cute little cottage with thatch on the roof
blue walls and a white picket fence

Laughter's Still the Best Medicine

Crystal eyes, ruby lips
And hair of sunshine gold
Muscles bulging head to toe
That's perfect, so I'm told

Shoulders wide, six-foot tall
Big feet? That's a plus
The world's seeking perfection
That leaves the rest of us

Lion Hunting

Where have you gone, little lion of mine?
You once filled the house with your roar.
Where is that terror that hunted the hall,
And waited in ambush behind the hall door?
I watched you for hours, little lion of mine.
As you crept through the leaves...
