Fear and the Wolf

What stranger can fathom beyond a spirit conforming to be brave where another man runs for shelter to a safe space inside himself?

No soul weeps for the man who conceals a hidden heart.
No man sees beyond passage of another man’s truth.
No...

Brevity of Life

How age and retrospect shorten
the life of living moments
to look back
as years stretch out behind us
reeling in every tomorrow
as thankfulness upon each new awakening

A once young soul stood perched
seeking to find himself
amid chaos of...

Child to Man

As river greets rain
there is but flow
uniting virtue to verse
and breath to brevity
as every hand raised against me
and spoil of memory
drawn to fend or uphold me
as a single need
from manifest to manhood

The seed I carry
lay...

Remembering Simple Pleasures

cool breeze on a hot day
a baby laughing
fresh cut grass
a lover’s touch
lyrics that changed your life
the friend who’s always been there for you
a smile
“hello"
people who let you cut in line at the grocery store
music that made your...

Dark Corner Monster Dragons

I’ve sensed each creaking corner as a specter scurrying to encourage human nature.

You, in the darkness, linger like an abstract prodding open wounds; You, the impulse, seek to conceal what is shadowed which blackens the dark.

I seek to...

That is precisely my mission. Thanks for recognizing it, Rob.

Therein lay the ultimate pursuit - wisdom. I flow in and out of it clouded and jaded by emotion and perception all too often. This is human fallibility, I reckon.

I am more of a philosophical writer than an imagery-style writer. It's just how my mind works. As for rhyming poetry - I have many on file, but have moved away to more of a free-verse style. Humbly, rhyming poetry comes very easy to me having been a lover of music since I was a child. I played drums for about 20 years and know the lyrics to so many songs I couldn't begin to count. That is where I get my rhyming ability. I have numerous song lyrics written on file as well. Thank you for being so kind.

I hope this isn't off-putting, but this brought tears to me eyes. I once very much loved a woman named Anna who passed away in 2004. It also made me reflect on my brother who lost a 6-month old son many years ago. The pain is always there as a reminder of how we loved little Cammie. You are an amazing writer, Robin.

Agreed. In this day and age when nefarious forces seem to be seeking to influence our youth we must be more vigilant than ever. I fear what lay down the pike for our youth and our/my nation of America, I truly do.

Thank you very much. As stated in the description, it's not anything earth-shattering, but just some of the things that have made me happy in my life, as well as other things I don't necessarily believe in or practice, but that others might. You are very kind. As a fellow empath that makes me smile. :-)

Utterly poignant poem. Sadly, it is we who must be the hero. We must save ourselves.

As a former drummer of 20 years I can definitely relate from a musical standpoint. Love both Elton and Air Supply along with a million others.

I really like the concept here. I especially like "With love as the wind we can sail around the world" This should be a song.

This is brilliant. Politics is a touchy subject. All I will say about the current party occupying the Blight House is as Anthony Frank stated. Anthony exposed KGB and CIA in government in 1984. He states: "I know firsthand Joe Biden is a CIA asset." End political discussion. LoL

Thank you, Sir. Just something I threw together for myself as a recollective of things that brought a smile to my own mug. Thanks for taking the time.
