the valley

from time to time
a valley intervenes
twixt the peaks
of life

you may feel low
but the water flows
through valleys
and puts the heights
into perspective

So hang in there
and take a draught
of water clear and pure
before you ascend once more

Life can be a pain
when aggressive and
unpleasant people
trample over your
that it's all your fault...

Poetry calms the anger
and restores
a tranquil

To read or write
hits the spot

Poem without a Name

not every poem
has a name
a moniker to call
it's own

some just
hang out here

but not for
that disdained
for poem is
what poem does

and rose is rose
whatever man may

so nameless poem
rock on
rock on
and comfort me.

post Sangria blues

what started as a great idea
some tapas, nachos

the cup was red
inviting cool
it slipped down
o so easily

overdo it
and pay the price
of your
all too
frail humanity

blear of eye
and ache of head
it's Thursday
and I've got them
post sangria blues
