Campus Life, 1971-72

Today’s prompt: campus, pipe, haze

Probably don’t need to note this, but back in college I was far too “straight”—the 70’s word for “not into partying, drugs/sex/rock ‘n roll”—to be involved in what my poem describes 🙂

Lost youth’s surreal dream

College world, life-time ago

Seventy-one, -two

Campus, mixed haze of unrest

Drowsy nirvana pipe smoke

Kitchen Drama (Ryan & Rita)

Today’s prompt: sauce, diamond, lynx

Stirring pasta sauce

Loose diamond ring drops in pot…

Oblivious spouse

Reports lynx skulking through yard…

Wife snaps: “Why don’t you join him!”

Waiting World

The world waits, breath held

Notes Resurrection Sunday

Hope’s burning candle

Hearts of various creed, faith

Pray for global miracles

True Blue Glorious



True blue glorious

Endless as Heaven’s threshold

Most welcome azure

Pours ceaseless blessings in hand

Cools summer, winter heart warmed

Palm Sunday

Palm leaves, praise, paved path

His soul-wracked journey chosen

Sacrifice He’d be

Followers dreamed regal King

Heard not He was their Savior

They took palm branches and went out to meet Him, shouting: “Hosanna!” “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Blessed is the King of Israel!” John 12:13, Berean Study Bible
