Hello There



Aloha Poets,
Inquisitive flowers inspire today's poem. Enjoy!

That Distant Glow

Slow going reins in along rugged terrain
Suggests itself as the answer to the coming rain
Halting and hesitant towering crags jut
Ragged hoping for any new good news afoot

To be denied a blanket in these extremes
Floats you more or less agog in loggers' dreams
To get down from here after watching courage plummet
Will take self-belief extracted from the summit

Is getting to the bottom of this really getting me home?
Meantime happily asking and out of proportion full blown
Blacked out and blanked by a blanket of snow
Fuels the pith of the myth of that distant glow

Skill sets exploited can be fun to watch
Chat up a fat cat to meet your match
Throw in your hat across a line on quicksand
Settle down to see no one holding your hand

Now crossing over to borderline out of control
Edging ever so close to the edgy and bold
Hands draw for the demand of spirit and soul
All for your destination's heart of the goal

Poetic Beauty


Aloha Poets,
Poetic beauty inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Style Dot Com

Media savant in the telling
Operative word with no spelling
Spark a myth with all the senses
Fragile underpinnings develop consensus

Exotic possibilities bobble along
Pop culture forever sings her swan song
Kinship spreads timely spinnakers
Sails at will past kindly wine makers

Circulation of myth festoons in the cold
Calculation of mist soon to be bold
Revisionist account shutters at zero
Positions alignment of zodiac hero

Poignantly galling sails the wind
Denizens fashion a duplicity grin
Once upon a time were real conversations
Style dot com's new authorization


Stripped of the myth by de facto coup
Englishmen's enlightenment dishes the soup
Appreciate the offer as it breaks a certain way
Style dot com have your say

Light-headed Headlights



Aloha Poets,
Dear-in-the-headlights flower inspires today's poetry. Enjoy!


Discombobulate Your Tale

A little backwater idea swims to the mainstream
Stroking to stoke people to get its wild scream
Story runs smooth on winter's water at every turn
As little campfires hope to make those prairie fires burn

Burgled but not robbed aerodynamically sound
Gurgled and bobbled floats sparingly abound
Demolition engineers heroically feign
Latter of ideas fish the public domain

A final splash of the discarded and the cursed
Astrology's alchemy of crop circles reimbursed
Falsely flagged to dry land's wet disposal list
In among the hardwoods pining for a twist

Passing the opinion of authoritative source
Viewpoint's pristine stays the course
Self-styled swimmer off the beaten path
Shape a modern history scent the wider swath

New art form dictates what might emerge
New cross citations adorn letter with words
Establish new anomaly what once was officially
Deemed by critics scoffed only as a splashy fish story

Christmas Lily



Aloha Poets,
Christmas lily inspires today. Enjoy!

Backwater Boomtown

A nice little bow serves the fiction
Outside its western town jurisdiction
Nobody stays mad at this young nomad
Or launched a rescue for the life he had

Still he wanders and wonders just loud
Amidst a bulldozer's backhoe dust cloud
Once long ago they sent in more troops
Civic dark holes with no obvious loops

Townspeople knew him long ago as Townsend
Displaced by a sheriff and something called Godsend
Switched remains a vivacious culture
Echoing beliefs of a migrating vulture

Dug up on grounds of human duplicity
In hopes to sprout forward a future city
Still status remains for lone falcon hunter
A young nomad's distant mist plains thunder

Expecting to start a world right there
Still they came and were named pioneer
Just a temporary fire or a permanent flare
Backwater boomtown with no county fair

With the feel of a nation's eyes within
Townsend's arrow bows defend
Echoes on behalf of faded missing
Tainted myopia townspeople kissing

Sheriff of samurai sacred ink
Talk surrounds as inner circles link
Prairie statue where towns people meet
Townsend motivates above history's feet

Where tangled threads awoke and jousted
Did outbound life have to be ousted?
Seldom does truth have a preamble
Backwater boomtown's where nations gamble

Cool Dude



Aloha Poets,
Cool dude inspires today's poem. Enjoy!


Juggle

I used to think gray matter mattered
Until that flange of connection spattered
Mostly touted to shake the smart
It's the white matter that has my heart

This delicious duo left and right
In a dance of closeness both take flight
Cerebrums are where many carry on
For me myelin sheath sings its song

The arrival of September and a rainy day
Offers its own kind of pathway
When all the leaves are falling down
Peripheral vision grasps the ground

Regular attendance is a good start
Where every song enters the heart
The tattered and warm may trudge in
Still white matter tracts within

Learning to adapt can cause a scream
While denser gray matter adds its steam
White matter however draws me in
To reverse a cascade juggle pin

Hope organizes to right the better
Leaving what's left to write a letter
While dark matter is space's way
It's my white matter that makes my day

Whistler Flower



Aloha Poets,
Whistler flower inspires today's poem Enjoy!

Fathom That Blues

Got the local media to grant my request
To put on the scramble paint at my behest
Mainstream standards come at my heals
Adding teeth to the story makes their own deals

Took a fling at filing with nine days to spare
Those beams from the podium shakes off the care
A few rolls of the tongue and candidacy takes flight
Try to fathom that with all your might

Fathom that another book in the dust
Fathom that this little boom or bust
Names get forgotten as history gets fat
On a thin edge of survival fathom that

Homeland of fathers system of cool
Decry the facade of what once was school
Flickering images so goes aggregation
As alligators allocate a little more allegation

Fathom that another pledge to dalliance
Fathom that a another edge of allegiance
Brilliance of this dance nobody gets fat
Hedging on survival everybody fathom that

Sailing Canoe



Aloha Poets,
Sailing canoe inspires today. Enjoy!

Rice Wine

Sniff taste appraise your heart away
Rising bubbles infused with nuanced array
Milky white hue of Korean jolly
Raises a glass in bells of holly

For Japan sake and wines of France
Rice wine now joins the dance
Makeolli nouveau carbonated fruity
Sake beer crosses no footprints snooty

National palate continental divide
Grain ingredient lactic acid inside
Sip of nostalgia for the bespectacled few
Makgeolli nouveau rice wine for you

Star Gazer



Aloha Poets,
Star gazer inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Tingle Through

Set about with your cautionary tale
Of low probability and high impact jail
Out on the loose with no impending cure
You frame your instincts around nothing sure

As solar scopes see from afar
Great titles voice from uttering star
Observe and documents all things new
All the while you just tingle through

Power of potential lord of the sand
Coffee sipping season at hand
Hope first rises then dogs around
As winners whine great ones go down

Your numbers improve and attention grows
Only hype's distraction potentially knows
Reaching for something substantial and true
All the while you just tingle through

Sand Man



Aloha Poets,
Sand man inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

High Ho the Hero

A real pleased feel of the prudent
As robots build a better student
The news arrived just yesterday
Robot hot spots are here to stay

Take a night off from the jumpiness
Sole carrier of the lumpiness
Mount a challenge make them pay
As High Ho the Hero swaggers away

This route about touts the way
In roundabout bouts of nay
Yes he will or no they say
Hi Ho the Hero arrives today

Dream season gleans in its prime
Perennial favorite cursory rhyme
As a league of its own seeks its line
High Ho the Hero arrives in time?

Come hither all in sole caravan
Weather the storm best you can
Whether you're warm is never the plan
High Ho the Hero be the man

Tropical Alien



Aloha Poets,
Tropical alien inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Radio Silent

Icky allegations absorbed by sages
Lovely hours turn their pages
Minds wander to little chases
The puppeteer of your embraces

Alluring stretches of beach's ocean
Skirmishes with a sporting notion
Smooth the way for starlit languish
In odd little half-chalked language

Returning to a chilled out status
After girding for a girl's hiatus
At odds over that little blunder
Tiger ready to show the thunder

Spirits move in timing ways
Yearning for the simpler days
Golf once relaxed now set the force
Radio silent stay the course

Autumn Owl



Aloha Poets,
Autumn owl inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Horse Prowess

Names in the dust bear no resemblance
As story goes according to remembrance
I saw a dream evaporate
Then rode the wind past Newton's gate

Off across the grassland miles
On a horse alone where illusion smiles
Quite memorable will be the later years
As garnered enthusiasm fakes its fears

Personality takes the helm these moments
Mysterious stories in fountain foments
Ask blue shock never to wait
Then prowess your horse with a natural gait

Water Flower



Aloha Poets,
Water flower inspires today. Enjoy!

Wonder Hinterland

Moonlight heaven show the way
Dreams destination desire
Break your silence down by the bay
As hearts warm by the fire

Hope for the best where sidelines stare
A journey to wrap your mind around
Disappoint worst case where devils may care
And foreign entanglements abound

Nearby strongholds may resonate slavery
With liberty's statue shrapnel embedded
Fear no wrong commemorate bravery
Utter freedom hinterland headed

Sleepy Eyes



Aloha Poets,
This sleepy tropical beauty inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Chess Player

To find and chill with cool white horses
The story goes lining up forces
With light touch of tale as wonders kiss him
Royal flushes a miss from the system

Elevated silence the stance of the call
That will be that for once and for all
Mastery of the shadowy loves at first
Connective story then friendships burst

Lightly tread to dark places of yearning
Where classical reaction is already burning
Revealing insights outside the door
On a snowy eve of nevermore

Book the series then vie to move
Game night comes on a twilight groove
As vendettas ride through hunky dory
Chess player now tell your story

Gold Cloud



Aloha Poets,
Gold cloud inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Native Home

Duck decoy sending out rumbles
Star item underreported mumbles
Bring an Indian fighter in from the cold
Spending rubles bought and sold

Sooted serial where caves dwell
Looted burial wayfarer from hell
Hunter of fortune looking for gold
Finds sparkly blue watery hold

Past paths in search of truth
Lauhala basket burial booth
Antiquities museum ingenuous strains
Iwi Kupuna indigenous remains

Repatriation glee ancestral joy
Skullduggery hulls ancient ploy
Ceremonial wary historic stains
Rebury the truth where native remains

Pollination



Aloha Poets,
Bee on a flower inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Exact Your Toll

Escort Neanderthals back to the cave
Stormy runs only for the brave
Separate outcry signature tout
Whiz a chore bust it out

Fuel a firestorm teach an inkblot
Widen a scandal hit your beach spot
Fixtures of fashion be what you're not
Godzilla of snack now serve it hot

Watch your back stomach a concern
Reeling moviegoer with something to learn
Nutty for coconut then a little heartburn
Exact your toll some day you'll learn

Night at Bay

Nothing holds the night at bay
Like the feeling of your soft sway
Hearts will have their permanent say
Around the hour of night each day

The beauty of it all is beyond blue
As revels reveal the rebel in you
Lonely like home holds no stead
Only night at bay ahead

The tears of song may pass you by
Where fears belong and tracks may lie
Sometime sunshine brings more than day
When your sweet arms hold the night at bay

Going Green



Aloha Poets,
Two buddies inspire today's poem. Enjoy!

Giant Gyre

A little part of them lives in you
Freedom found by a select few
Image harvest fast tasty health
Giant gyre collected wealth

Simply amazing that wall came down
Old crowning glory now on the ground
Diversification of creativity
Finds western liberal democracy

Tyrants of paint, brush your ware
With crack shrunk works of poetic flair
Creative tyrant stay the course
Giant gyre go ride that horse

Aloha Writers,
Flower appearing to look back inspires today's poetry. Enjoy!

Let's Play Halfsies

Let's all storm the beach anew
Light a screen distant friends on cue
Early jolts excite the crews
Fancy teams too loaded to lose

Find a way to make a mark
Cavernous basement space so dark
Savor the salty language flair
With magic topics in the air

Come knocking at our door
Before we at yours do the chore
Let's play halfies amidst life's fizzes
To warm the after glows of cold business

Fence Bouquet



Aloha Writers,
Soft pattern of nature contrasts hard pattern of metal and cement. Enjoy!

Hawaii Photo Poetry

Lulls and Runs

Fantasy reasons but their yours
War horses have their own cures
Dry and gripping wild and wet
Is yesterday down on paper yet?

Contingents continue to choke the gun
All the while something's dripping on the sun
Breathe in the view and momentum of fate
Grown more skeptical as of late

Language with its native patterns
Search the skies for other Saturns
Rhythm melody intensity play
Tune in the chatter of the Milky Way

Standing far back from the starting line
Plato's piano plays so fine
Stubborn ambition flaunts duality
In lulls and runs of reality

Cool Mountain



Aloha Poets,
Panoramic Hawaii mountain inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

The Potting Soil

Final burst hushes the bush
Worrisome undercurrent daily rush
Grow so much in such little time
The potting soil the nursery rhyme

Large melee a life of remembrances
Rocky boat of life's little dances
Sold on a promise smitten by a voice
Offer a window of one more choice

Sky high sense of possibility
The genial prose of sensibility
Vast array of dancing Iowans
Owes IOU's to tribes of Kiowans

Across the plains on a quest of gold
Plain spoken now where the trains roll
Familiar plateau with its legions of loyal
Once were America once potting soil

Sunny Flower



Aloha,
Flower Hibiscus inspires today's poem. Enjoy!


Smokey Silk


A worrisome first incendiary call
Eccentric of recent descent makes the fall
Fall forward fashions fault system
Cluster trigger then she kissed him

First in the latest of critical stress
Ready to rock with a tiny force stress
Research of debate ongoing
Be a smirk as of late going boing boing

It lines up for them on a slugfest
Distance diminishes the hugfest
Reflection of love for your islands
Enchanted ocean disguises the lands

Cautionary tale and laws of physics
Drunken fairy bound to kiss it
Laws don't hold the Kakamazoo Kid
Overlook smokey silk homestead

Aloha Writers,
Wild wispy horse inspres today's poetry. Enjoy!

Argentina Tango

Upbeat at the outset offensive offer
Chances to go downhill up the coffer
hard-draw flap photo real
Aesthetic calculation declines the deal

Incline to disclose inspired recipe
Big epic fairy tale go see

Ouster success independent tech
Advances its pace away from the wreck
Emblematic blemish gird for a snag
Storied icon bring a brown bag

Mountain pristine eye the ball
Drive the foothills break the wall
Spotlight your game eat your mango
Ride a horse Argentina tango

Arrowhead Road

Aloha,
Here is an exerpt from my novel, Arrowhead Road. Enjoy!


Her mind was calm but she knew what was coming. She dragged the match across flint and lit a rolled cigarette.
She was thin and pretty and had wanted to be a horse woman. She and Custer's daughter had been friends until the Indian Wars started on the prairies up north. There were too many soldiers up there and now all these newspaper writers. Still she wanted to be a horse woman and she couldn't be one living in this dirty camp.

Arrowhead Road

Today's exerpt from my novel, Arrowhead Road Enjoy!

Her face showed nothing; the only sign of life was a certain flicker of an eyelash burning inside her heart.
She and her boss are in a state of hate in which no one has endured.
Inside the office at night is a microcosm where names fill file cabinets, where, window blinds seep with neon, where young girls sit at desks, girls who have seen the endless expanse of farmland, who have given away their childhood and now, thinking adult thoughts, can never go home. Their loneliness on their father's farm has gotten them this far. They are young and beautiful. They are willing to work in the dim light of obscurity, hoping.

Lamplight Music

Arrowhead Road

Aloha, Here is the latest from my novel, Arrowhead Road. Enjoy!

The fear is always there, pulsing, and her times of relaxation, whether short or long, always seem temporary.
At times, the phobia only takes her to a darker place, for a few hours or days, then nothing. Sometimes it visits her at night and she herself rises to meet it.

Tropical Beauty



Aloha Poets,
Color inspires today's writing. Enloy!


Walk Out There

Close-eyed fury shadowy trail
Desolate nature please don't fail
Be portrayed in a serious way
Say the right things to me today

Organise a retrospective beauty
From the inside of freedom's duty
Chafe under the dutiful constraint
Walk out there and just paint

Invisibility in art's underworld
Fiercely guard all manner of word
Display your art in all possible manor
Walk out there and show your clamor

Flower Whale



Aloha Poets,
Flower whale inspires today's poem. Enjoy!


Putter Around

Hectic strikes with to-do lists
People of places bring their bliss
Battles fought so wars are won
Amidst the still of the setting sun

Hold yourself find your still
Sanity thunder strikes at will
Satisfy those armies of crucial need
Those certifiable needs to bleed

Daybreak calls with no bell to ring
Outside there is a world shining
Wake up calls before the fray
Putter around the world at bay

Busy bodies useless task
See the sunrise be the last
Be nice to yourself be the one to care
Oasis of calm putter yourself there

Inspirational Cat



Aloha Poets,
Rozzy's sleepy photo inspires today's poem. Enjoy!


Degree of Possibility


Lax discipline with complacency
Backs all findings of discrepancy
Overshouting in a market of charms
Reposes together in comfort's arms

Keep me engaged as a monitor
As flight sagas leave the shore
Failures to stay in constant contact
Scrambles a jet gets me back

Automate management with systems
Decimate my whiskers of cat wisdom
Radio in a terse loud response
To my fleeting brush with romance

Too sophisticated and reliable to overshoot
Love means business with a puss and a boot
Going down now without a fight
Degree of possibility take your flight

Strike a Chill

Brutal imagination find your fate
Express yourself with words of weight
Portraits emerge at your own will
Images wait to strike their chill

Unpleasant sticklers pile it on
For rules of logic and beyond
Crawl out the bunker once and for all
Sending the thrill of standing tall

Pound in the facts with no stammer
Keep them in place use your sledge hammer
Infamous slur image your task
Strike a chill then never ask

Tropic Cool Paradox



Aloha Poets,
Cool ocean and palms inspire today's poem. Enjoy!

Stress Paradox

System booster anti-carcinogen
Stress paradox get up again
Enhance the angst don't mess up this chance
To couple my trouble to your little dance

Food safety and shelter's a known community
Where stress dresses up in its immunity
She fights disease by simple meditation
Or taking a cruise Mediterranian

Predator unease feign no relief
All is needed is a little good grief
As alleviation beckons with its little plea
We sail into the storm to find a rough sea

Stress paradox sharpen my knife
Help me hunt and call it a life
Procrastination axe go groove your deep rut
Stress paradox be my shelter hut

Arrowhead Road

Latest exerpt from my novel, Arrowhead Road. Enjoy!

No magic words can bring back my youth, but memory can. You see, time is of the essence, and so is precious life.
Mother was the workhorse of the family. Her childhood during the Great Depression was her saddle. These words describing her life are too important to wait any longer.
She was born Patricia Jean Kerr, 150 years after the birth of America and 100 years after the death of Thomas Jefferson. She is famous to only one person, me.
My thinking has always been influenced by writers, hers by bread lines and soup cups. They say in America a woman can be cast in any role, and yet she herself is driven by her own cast of memories.
Some say the Great Depression started in 1920 with the outlaw of drinking alcohol in America and ended in 1941 with the bombing of Pearl Harbor. She says it started December 22, 1926, the day she was born.
