Shut off that radio,

The stale re-packaged crap

violates my ears!

My brain slows to a crawl

I’m getting dumber.

Like an airborne virus

like a plague,

it kills……,


Where are the

writers, composers


I don’t want short shorts

and men

with make-up, made.

I don’t need


who only sing, to get paid.

I want depth behind

the words.

Where are the bards,

the merry minstrels

singing of deeds that matter?

Sing to me

of relevant emotion.

Do not tell me of

your night in the club.

no one cares bub!

Be an inspiration!

These words are a gift.

Use them responsibly!

This was inspired, when I was stuck in the car with only the radio. Wouldn’t you know it but there was nothing on but pop-rock crap.

In that instance silence was golden and I thanked the higher powers for my off button. Enjoy.


We Stood

We  stood,

In that place.

The mountain, in the distance-

Lapping the shore.

The mountain bent down

To see us!

The lake showed to it, his face,

And in that place,

Of green and reflective blue,

We watched the becoming of


To one.

Our Holiday

Today we celebrate the birth of this nation. This great nation, full of kind and generous people, people who forgive and try for the most part in their soul to understand their fellow-man. This is what we really celebrate today. Not a flag, not a bunch of pyrotechnics exploding in a darkened sky, we celebrate us. We are at our core a good people. Yes we are opinionated and a little over privileged  at times, but when push comes to shove we do the right thing! So today be proud of that and remember that all year long, and if we all do that, maybe those disassociated old men and women in Washington will do the same.

I have not forgotten that I said I would publish a poem inspired from the wedding I attended in Vermont. I hope to have that posted today as well. Until then enjoy your day, and Happy 4th of July!
