Online Dating Blues



So here is introduction

like writing these poems

moonlit nights on lone beaches

all of life’s struggles


Years built around family

sturdy foundation yet cracked

this opening has small space

for another life


Really one must live on faith

in random daily hello

maybe this will be the one

once I wash off bleach


Beaten by Mango till sour

unable to make contact

only those with power lust

only a short time


These are the faces outside

they blur as day progresses

lonely chores are completed

into the nighttime


Pray my daily prayer

Lord help me to reach farther

then this neighborhood of old

to try life again



Accept God’s gift of the present

instead of filling empty

vessels with tepid water

without sound reason


These are all of love’s battles

combined with metaphoric

an illusion created



Nearby are potted flower

here patch work Azalea

loneliness disguised as Rose

a potter at wheel


Dream of the joy of a team

a partner in this life dance

cannot read motivation

simple working man


A need to find the inside

desire intimacy

try to find you through the ruins

become everything


A man at the door knocking

stands knowing there is someone

at peek hole considering

whether to answer



Will provide companionship

while struggling to stand-up

everyday against the wind

here is attention


Seconds after arrival

children’s energy explodes

matter begins out of place

feet already hurt


Meet someone as tired as me

between cleaning for hot tea

splits oneself among children

a torn loaf of bread


For you my hands are outstretched

heart open and releases

held only for a second

released into sky


A man stands under porch shade

once an inquisitive boy

now a tired laborer

waiting for water


Mature landscaping

shades these older neighborhoods

from the heat of Midday sun

Where once a clearing
