Late Spring Night, Utah Lake: Revolutionary Email Free Verse Poem

May 14, 2015

It is said there are
ten reasons
Walking barefoot can
Heal you
And connect you
With Earth Mother
And her vibe
And her nurturing
And her love,
So you can feel whole
And connected
And in tune again.
Footprints and piled clothes: Sandy Beach, Utah Lake, May 2015
I take off my shoes
And leave footprints
In the sand.
I walk out
To the lake water’s edge.
I feel
The universal harmonic
Putting me in sync.

The rest of my clothes
Follow and pile
On my shoes.
My glasses,
So no one can see me.

My toe marks
in the lake
Are quickly scoured
By wavelets
And my wake
As I walk
And walk
And walk
To where my knees
Stay damp.

In the half moonlight
I guess
I look like a white blob
As I lean back
between her cold breasts,
into her firm stomach
And let her
Wash over me
And around me
And through me,
And connect me
And harmonize me
And cleanse me.

I stand.
And the east wind
shrink me
So much into myself
That I feel me
In me
And know who I am
As part of her
And it
And all.

I Thought I Was Being Private: Revolutionary ImproVerse Haiku

It’s not ’til later,/
after you urinate by/
the lake, bug bites itch.

When you have to pee/
late by the lake, mosquito/
bites show much later.

Drowning In A Grocery Sack: Revolutionary ImproVerse Iambic Poem

March 11, 2015

The plastic grocery sack/
floating on Utah Lake/
became a death trap/

So why did we laugh?/
What a horrible way/
to die like that,/
in a grocery sack.

Driving my newly-washed car down a muddy Utah road to get to Sandy Beach, Utah LakeOn a cloudy Friday morning
I washed my car.
On a sunny Saturday afternoon
I drove down a muddy road
and went to the beach.

Was it worth it?

Oh yeah!
Most definitely!
