4 Poems for my Bestiary collection

Poems for my Bestiary

...

bird in the sky

me on the ground

and so much space

in between

...

toy dog

in the arms of a browser

looking at the

stacks of books

"What's the difference

between one and another?"

...

the architect Ant

young and unexperienced,

looks into air,

shakes his head,

"A mounds been done!

...

This King loved to fish

but he had a fear of getting wet



So his… Continue

Poems with Spirit

The original building
had a tower
to catch the wind

but now it's gone
it kept geting clogged
with low flying clouds!

...

one bell
in the tower
was deaf

...

this sacred air
keeps escaping
out of the church

...

and on
and on
and so forth
and so on

...

Zen text?
Blank book?
I get them both
mixed up!

Someone Did an article on Most Overlooked Book - my response

Someone did an article on the best overlooked books of the year. Here is my response: Most overlooked? Compare with an entire golden age of literature overlooked by everyone! Zines, or the desktop explosion from late 80′s for a decade or so, produced not only great writing, but great book making and illustration tied in with that writing. It was the first literature that included bookmaking as part of the achievement. It was the best writing of the 90′s and I bet you don’t even know about the… Continue

This week's quizzical quiz question

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

If I just said, "It's got a good beat and you can dance to it," What did I most likely just finish doing? Clue 35-98!

IS,

You just finished the "Rate-a-Record" segment of American Bandstand ( rate how you like it from 35-98). The TV show would play 2 new releases and two people from the audience would rate the record. Seems that over time the good ratings always had the same reasons, "It's got a good beat and… Continue

I danced into the light

I danced back

Jazz changed America, but rock and roll changed the world!



Most customer and worker complaints seem to be with corporations and governments with a lot of bureaucracy.



Poverty grinds



Part of the problem with the media’s news stories is that they stress conflict over cooperation, and problems over solutions.



Even the most peaceful, kill billions of bacteria



Strong contrasting colors suggests a painter… Continue

Net Access - a right or a product

Dear Musea Readers,



Big set back for net neutrality today. That's not good news. Here's my take on it.

I think internet access should be free to all as a right, not a corporate product to buy.

See my blog post at

This is a Maybe Story (sci-fi poem)

THIS IS A MAYBE STORY

[Poem from Writings in Science anthology]



This is a maybe story

of 'what if' and 'could be'



We voyage out

through inky space

and land on a gray

cratered stone world

with sand, boot high



While exploring this realm

we find locked in place

a technological marvel

an eye pieced telescope



Where does it point?

Why only there?

Why can't it swivel?

Is it a clue?

What do we… Continue
