Communication is so easy

Facebook, Twitter, text, phone

a million ways to message instantly:

No excuses for

your silence.



(I could also have entitled this, “Call Your Mother!”)  😉


poem- out in the rain September 15, 2014


I have patience to tolerate

your negative energy.

I can listen to your whining


without comment.

I can ignore your

ignorance, and gently

try to inform you.

But right now,

my world is a storm

of negativity, raining from

despots, thieves, and liars

who have too much power over my life.

I am holding up a very small umbrella

to hold off the stress.

If you blow that negative air at me,

you will turn my umbrella inside out

and so you’ll excuse me

if I leave you

standing in the rain

by yourself.

You’ve been waiting,



but now

it’s time to act.

Stop planning,



and do.

Face the task.

Make it happen.

Decide as you go along.

It’s time,
