Tanka T008

When I was a kid –
I was such a big dreamer –
But then I grew up –
Got practical and became –
More of a dream fulfiller

Tanka T006

I’m living my life –
Like an illustration drawn
From the outside in –
Where all things will end up at
One common vanishing point

Skating Poem S035

One day soon – I might
Be making drawings instead
Of writing poems –
On ferry rides for a Big
Lift Ferry art collection

A star in a part
Of the universe
That is hard to see from Earth

I hate dreams in which
Everybody dies –
One by one, except for me

On top of Mauna Kea –
Looking down at clouds –
Where my dreams still are

One Stanza Poem O136

The world
Is your oyster –
So be its pearl –
Rather than
Just another
Grain of sand

I’ve Always Got Something to Say [version 1.0]

Ask me about the weather,
Ask me how I do feng shui,
Ask me if I would wear leather,
Or to whom I pray?
Ask me any question, any  day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me what I think of friendship,
Ask me how I feel about love,
Ask me my views on money,
Or on happiness?
Ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me about blogging, clear cut logging,
Autobahns and black swans,
Michael Jordan, Bob Dylan,
Islam, Viet Nam, H-bombs and my Mom,
Yeah, ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me where I stand on abortion,
Ask me if I’d help someone die,
Ask me my beliefs in cloning,
Or in alien life.
Ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me how I’d solve global warming,
Ask me how I’d get world peace,
Ask me how I’d end world hunger,
Or inequality?
Ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

One Stanza Poem O134

Hope in depression –
Is like a star in space –
A beacon of light –
Burning bright –
In a vast –
Cold and empty dark place

One Stanza Poem O132

I dream of you when I’m asleep –
I dream of you when I’m awake –
In the former, a lovely couple we make –
In the latter, hope is all I keep

Who would look to the Sun,
