Time Is The Mistress

Time is the Mistress

we all bed,

In exchange for Faith,

Love & Hope

And Fear she will teach

us to shed,

If her lethargy

we can cope.

Tanked Tanka

nature nurtures love

man manipulates all hope

seeking his true faith

kismet is the kiss of life

and life is the kiss if death


Forty-five revolutions
Around the sun.
I have lived and I have loved
And I’ve lost some.

Forty-five revocations
Of my credence
In love unconditional
And it’s dispense.

Forty-five reservations
Of my self worth,
Quickly yield to erasure
In life’s grand mirth.

Forty-five revelations
Of faith and hope,
I have embraced one each year
To help me cope.

Forty-five resolutions
On my birthday
To quit greeting the morning
As a doomsday.

Sapient Mistress

In the Garden of Knowledge

Lives a sapient mistress;

Though she is blind to the world

She’ll stop to hear you confess.

And impart her sage advice,

But on a limited scope.

For her great expertise lies

In that of Faith, Love, and Hope.

Employ Hope

In our search for Love

We default to employ Hope

And hence neglect Faith

New Year Tanka

Ring in the New Year
with hopes of prosperity
and wipe the slate clean.
Remember: Love begets Love
and nothing’s stronger than Faith.

Blind Faith

It is sheer blind faith,

To Love’s possibilities

A heart surrenders.
