Rise!

Rise!

From the darkness
From the woods
From obscurity
From under hood
The Sureshot Rises

His bow in hand
His arrows fly
Striking true
His enemies die
The Sureshot Rises

Cloak conceals his form
Mysterious and dark
A woodsman comes to us
With a hunter’s heart
The Sureshot Rises

Rise and stand above
Rise and loose your arrow
Rise and win our hearts
Rise and best your foes
Rise, Sureshot, Rise

New Year

Leave a comment

I raise a glass and toast
To an end and a new beginning
The closing of a chapter lost
A new page though I’m turning

For whether the last was good
Or whether it was unpleasant
It always understood
That life is in the present

Leave behind extra burdens
It’s better to travel light
While nothing is ever certain
One can always enjoy tonight

TBT: Senator

Appropriate for today’s political climate. Apparently I didn’t like them even as a teen

A child so beautiful and young,
Her life long journey had just begun.
A man with debts he cannot pay,
No longer can he keep the jealous rage at bay.
The lamb, sacrificed at his bloody hands.
Monster.
Knocked down over and over by the world,
Brain fried like eggs and blood curdled.
Strolled into a low cost burger grill,
As if he did it every day, no hesitation to kill.
Laying down people like a stack of split logs.
Demon.
A failed marriage and a terrible father,
Spending money, like a horse eating fodder.
Caught in a sticky web of deceit and lies,
He turns to the influential help of his ties.
Your only lying to your pathetic self.
Senator.

Goodbye July

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

July was a great month for me as a writer. I finished the final draft of The Sureshot and managed to blog at least twice a week, every week, for the entire month on each of my three blogs. Both were goals and I am proud to announce that I accomplished them. I racked up some impressive “stats” for me at least and so I’m celebrating and thanking everyone who read my posts, my poems, my work and even more so those of you who “liked” or commented along the way. I’m looking forward to more months of writing and blogging and one day doing this full time. Cheers!

If you liked one of them, you may like others I post.

Birthday Poem: My Fire

Leave a comment

While words may not be enough
To describe how much love
I have for you my lovely wife
There’s one word that just might
Fire

Your spirit burns so bright
For people lost you are a light
Those shivering cold, you’re warmth
A warming glowing red hearth
A Fire

When I met you I saw it too
Made me want to get to know you
That warm smile and beautiful face
Drawn to you, into your embrace
Your Fire

My love for you exploded in joy
I knew I wanted every day to enjoy
Your love, your company, your heart
I never want to be a part
from, your Fire

Happy Birthday my love

Burn Bright always

To Be a Child In Summer

Leave a comment

Summer sun so hot and burning
Doesn’t slow the children yearning
To play and laugh and swim all day
Until their heads they slowly lay
Down to rest and dream all night
In morning swim again they might
So careless, free and joyful they are
While adults toil to pay the house and car
Oh to be a child innocent and free
Even for one more summer’s eve
Of hotdogs, watermelon and swimming
Adulthood is nice but childhood is living

Summer in Fresno Limerick

Leave a comment

Everyone loves the summer
No other season is funner
But here in Fresno
Where it’s an inferno
We sizzle like bacon as we suffer
