I love writing poetry and exploring the depths of my emotions and their meaning. For instance, I used to think that a person is a solo object floating in the midst of abstract indefiniteness yet has a mysterious link to all other things. Is that even possible, to be an individual and still be part […]

Nearing the end of a long threescore and ten, With all its chances, changes, losses, sorrows, and dangers, My parents’ deaths and brother too, the nonconformity of my life through, The many tearing passions of my mind, the war of ’68 and ‘9, As some old spent warrior, down a long, hot, lonely corridor, Reckoned […]

Old Plastic FlowersWe get so enmeshed in appearances that practically everything is true.Yet, out of custom or habit, even simple gifts excite great expectation of lasting long and eternal good. The longed-for completeness that only deep dreams foretell exit in heaps of discarded facts, like old plastic flowers. Whereunto must a man attend to find […]

The Truth of the Flower Is science the truth of the flower? No, the truth of the flower is the image in the brain of the image-maker. Science? It is only a thing of ways and means–pixels on a sensor–binary code in a computer–in relation to the art in the heart of the creator. Mere […]

The Spirit of God stands at His post watching over the souls of men to guide, chastise, and instruct. Unbeknownst to the blind are all the seemingly insignificant happenings that cross our path every hour and every day. The alert person recognizes that all our days are numbered and steps accounted for, nothing falls to […]
