Jack watched from his position behind the car in the parking garage, The bald ganger had used the high pitched whistle to beckon the chattering monkey.

I was on my zero turn mower
out in the field mowing slower.
Was a clear day-no wind-still,
An Indian summer day- warm with a breath of chill.
I stopped my mower to stare.
The sky was a soft inviting blue,
cotton tuffs scattered in the view.
The Sun was gentle in the chill'
raising my senses to a thrill.
Then a puff of cotten set underneath the glow,
filtering the golden rays just so.
The scene became a pallet of mist,
a beautufull… Continue

Cold or warm it's the first impression,
a first encounter causes the expression.
You meet someone new,
the eyes are the first you view.
You do a quick scope.
from head to toe you grope.
From their mouth you analyze,
their words spoken you cannabalize.
In a flash you decide,
do I like this hide.
If your wise you wait and see,
does this person speak free?
You excange your chatter,
the usual… Continue

The wind blows yet you can't see,
you feel it's breath you know it's free.
The branches relent--even the grass,
swaying , rocking, in it's pass.
We each have a wind so real,
to react from to feel.
Life blows from many a direction,
we can't know we lack detection.
The wind of life has a unique sway,
to each it blows a different way.
To some it's hard and unforgiving,
others are caressed with gentle… Continue

The thing about prose is that it brings out the heart in a writer. The senses are brought to the surface. This will improve the writing of fiction. After writing many pieces of poetry on many subjects I find my fiction writing to be more sensitive to the characters in the novel. I realize I have a long road to travel in my writing. But all writing whatever the genre can assist and develope a writer. Any comments on this subject would be appreciated

We post and read each others writ
learning and marveling at the writers wit,
Many types of prose reach our heart
distilling our thoughts for a start,
Love, sadness, elation,surprise, and many more
fill our senses galore,
The poets aim is to feel - to share
a heartfelt prayer,
Theres no monetary guide
just a feeling from the deep inside,
Call it social or being friendly
but the poet isn't trendy,

I had a ornery spoiled quarter horse mare That I brought home to train. She was a nasty one. She tried to kick me and bite me because the previous owner spoiled her. She had no fear of humans and was dangerous! I set about to change that. I lounged her and watched her carefully. Working with her daily. I was putting her back into her paddock and I turned my back to shut the gate, She bit me on the back. Out of instinct and reaction I turned and readily roundhoused my fist connecting to her… Continue

How often do we use a beast
to feature our yeast,
The wolf is used many ways
to conjole or sway,
He often howls
sets his nose on a prowl,
Some men are called a wolf by action
they stalk women without losing traction,
Some are a wolf by nature
quiet---a loner---you notice their stature,
Others are incensed by the hunt
whether for greed, power-to be blunt,
What kind of wolf are you
do you howl… Continue

I must comment about the thrill of getting a book published. Even though the novel may fall flat on it's face like a new water skier who get's a facelift while trying to learn the ballance of water sports, None the less the accomplishment that you have written a tale will always be with you. Then if you are compelled to write you keep on going on because you love to write. if you enjoy the art of writing you try to learn and fine tune your craft. Whose to say if you're good or not! But our love… Continue

They stood there twisted in surreal engagement
each trying to catch victory in their enragement,
The crane a symbol of peace
was in turmoil to say the least.
Many died in this wastefull war
fighting and killing galore,
The twisting of the symbol of peace
was yet another war they do not ceace,
This memorial stands at KU
forty four lost in this mileau,
I can't even count the many lost
by men in their quest--- oh… Continue
