Memory’s Harvest #haiku

At the beginning of September I came back to my birthplace. Nothing of my mother remained. The grass in front of mother’s room had withered in the frost. Everything had changed.

Your Poem on the Wind #poetry #loss #photography

As You Walked Out The Door #Holidays #children #poem

My eyes glinted the stars caught it the misty tear “goodbye” I tried so hard to hide * The first time you waved that winning smile followed my heart couldn’t believe I’d get used to watching you leave * your deep voice fills the rooms in memory’s spaces and I fight back dreams to shrink […]

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
