TRAFFIC


Twelve lanes of

traffic at night

Some lights red

Some lights white.

CLOVER CLEAVING


Mowers do

the clover cleave

and shred the

little violet leaves.

CONCH GIFT


The sea sends

watery fans

to the shore

with gifts, here

an empty conch,

there a piece of

driftwood ribboned

with green seaweed.

 

Listening to the conch

we can here the omkar

of the sea giftgiver.

FROZEN FEELINGS


Frozen feelings melt

and flow into pens,

recrystallizing as words.

NOT COWARDS


Soldiers have been shot

by firing squads for

'cowardice'.  Some of

these men were pacifists.

Others criticized unwise

attack plans. Still others

opposed suicidal strategies

designed only to further

an officer's career at the

cost of the lives of his men.

FALLLING BOMB


A falling bomb

is crystallized hatred

dropping on all.

 

Drones are robots.

We delegate even

our killing.

AROUND HIS HOVEL


He decided not

to shovel

around his hovel

but to wait

for the sun's

more powerful

snow removers.

DOG HEARTS


Most dogs like most parents

love unconditionally....

As parents accept totally

the child Godsent... so

dogs love completely...

not caring about the

finances, external beauty,

intelligence, cleanliness

etc of their human companions.

ICE V ICE


Ice cannot

fight ice.

But sun

on warm days

defeats ice

in a trice.

Hate can't

erase hate

but love

creates

love from hate

HOW CONGRESSMAN BOEHNER KEEPS HIS SEAT


How Congressman John Boehner And Other

Ohio Republicans Keep Their Seats.

 

These are the same Ohio Republican

worshippers of

Gerry Mander who stole the presidential

election from the Democrats in 2004.

 

Footnote:

Charles W Freeman: The wars of the US

have not cauterized problems but

metastasized them.

 

Boehner has been widely criticized for inviting Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before Congress without clearing this with the White House.

SIDE EFFECTS


Crew hired to chainsaw a row

of six 45 foot high pine trees.

Baby robins fall onto the asphalt.

An empty nest rolls down the driveway

LIGHT UNDERSTANDS DARKNESS


Into the night

comes the Light.

Light understands darkness.

Darkness does not understand light.

Great lovers reach out to those

who love less

not requiring return love.

 

*

Footnote:

John 1: 5   And the light shineth in darkness and the

darkness comprehended it not.

GRIEFSTRICKEN


She was an atheist. After

her beloved husband died

she began drinking heavily

.... her grief multiplied by

the thought that he no longer

existed at all.  God show

her that he still IS, that he

will love her forever, and that

he is happy.
