Poetry, poetry, and more poetry ...

Man ... I can't believe that I haven't been able to write for a week ... too damn much stuff taking up my time! Anyway ... got another one done yesterday (as usual) while daughter #1 was doing her Dojo class. Of course ... just in case you weren't paying attention ... the real big news is that my Big Poetry Site is up and running ... and I will be all sorts of mopey and whiney if folks don't go and take a look at it! Here's the link:


                    WHAT UNVEILS TODAY

                    long time coming
                    the archetype
                    of what this world
                    rejects, derides ...
                    an act of will
                    a massive task
                    that those outside
                    care nothing of

                    we press so hard
                    strive so mightily
                    to build a thing
                    new within the world
                    knowing that the mundane frame
                    sees nothing worthy
                    in the action
                    or the deed

                    the hours spent
                    must be hidden
                    lest the forces
                    of dull enforcement
                    erupt against such dreams
                    and in rage insist
                    how better used
                    would be this time

                    yet this may have
                    some gravity
                    which will warp the map
                    defining worlds
                    this may shape the way
                    all things occur
                    reordering systems
                    rearranging fate

                    and what just if
                    this realigns
                    our place
                    our purpose?
                    we have visions
                    of such days
                    dreams that maybe
                    we might attain
