Chess Game

We are all God's creatures.
We are all God’s creatures.

A chess board for playing out the game of power over

Stomping across this Earth with no true respect

Honor is forgotten in the obscuring shadow of this malady

Is the dirt of this disease so deep that it cannot be seen?


The answer truly lies in humility and heartfelt honesty

Like a gardener rooting out the dead and useless weeds

Painful process. War to be waged on the unnecessary growth

The tender keeper of the land must clear it’s inner landscape


So that love can be humbly planted.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
