Keys in many colors

Keys in many colorsimag1767_1_1_11

They all are special,
they all have on in
common.

They all serve a purpose.
They all open doorways;
to the unknown,
to the familiar,
to the places of happiness.
to places we threat.

You can’t tell
what door they open
just by looking
at the ring.

All are the same
and ask of us
to discover their
meaning.

So, if you see
a keyring with
many colors,
see the potential
it might hold.

The places it might
take you too.
The adventures
hidden behind.

A love affair

Seeing her,
leaning at the wall,
eager to please.

My desire;
feeling her
between my thighs

Straight lines,
curvy at the right
places.

You would call her
slick and powerful.

My heart starts throbbing
seeing her waiting
for me.

Thinking about her
all day.
Hiding pictures
on my computer.
Sneaking a peek
when nobody watches.

She is mine now,
Ready and eager.
Mounting her,
feeling leather
on my crotch.

Here we go,
up the hill,
my Bianchi,
an Italian beauty
of carbon.

Eagerly taking me
on my evening ride.
Leaving the day
behind.

Feeling wind
and freedom.
May the sunset
lullaby us into
an evening
of rest.

The Getty at Christmas time

At the Gettyimag17511

Riding the tram
up to the peak,
visiting The Getty.

Sun setting,
turning structures
purplish blue.

In the valley
the 405 winds through
Cahuenga Pass.

Lights lined up
in red and white,
10 lanes of traffic
creating liquid
Christmas lights.

Large snowflakes
projected onto walls
and marble floor
setting the mood for
Christmas at The Getty.

Children chasing
animated lights.
Trees wearing
festive glows.
People lining up
the coffee cart,
hot beverages for
a cool night.

Nightfall and
The Getty shines,
buildings in white elegance.

People moving
in and out of galleries,
silenced by ancient art
and modern architecture.

The Getty by night,
at Christmas time,
drawing people in.

One Nation

Election hangover,
grieving sorrow.

Elated success,
beating the odds.

Division through
the core.

One Nation?

Nothing in common.

Painted into corners,
worldviews collide.

Where to go?

Egos larger than life.

Speaking hatred.
Hearts filled with fear.

Change, for the sake of it.
Protecting the status quo.

Transitions into unknown.
People fill the streets,
demonstrating to defend.

Where to go?

One Nation,
trusting middle ground.

Words, are past now,
actions count.

Symbiosis!

One Nation!

Where to go?

Hope,
hope the goodness
in people wins.

Stronger together
makes America great again.
