Christmas Eve


Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.



Jo Ann


From 2000


I Am One


I am one

But not so little

That none can see

My delicate face.


Tears define me

As days slip by

In slow secession

With no apology.


I am one

A teddy bear

With deep hazel eyes

That drivel cold.


My being is huge

Hungry with grand illumination

Walking in buried shadow

Becoming what I will.


I am one

A goddess living

In LOVE with life

And a man of substance.

New Poem


You Always Need Poetry


You ask how solitary experience thrills

Patriots who value good tradition.


Think about love between diverse neighbors;

They think liberty is free.


Imagine speech from a thousand books

Can shine through the night like a full moon.


Language must protect and defend

The foundation of our independence,


And bless each peaceful dream

With happiness, opportunity, and immense hope.


Remember God gives us help with life;

Opinion must matter more than our majesty.


Every human family that shall manage to feel love

Shall come together in cozy community.

Mere Words




In between the words

We say one unto another

Lie syllables and silence

Which speak boldly out

Thoughts and feelings

We dare not yet give voice.


Our soft and soothing tones

Caress each other gently

The dance stepping ever

Subtly closer to the point

Where I might whisper

I love you and you respond in kind.

A Thought




I never could teach my heart

to sizzle over meager taste

of opinions with no foundation

in thought and experience.

Another Magnetic Poem


A Magnetic Refrigerator Poem


I drive fast…

Burn hot beneath my dress

Ache from disuse

Produce delicate love

Gorgeous life, enormous dream.

All luscious woman

The whisper of delicious

Essential language

Always pleases me.

Magnetic Poem


Honor America


Celebrate freedom beautiful angel

Soothe and bless us with your voice

Defend the bountiful equal opportunity

Of independence, hope, and true peace

Urge us to live in happiness together;

Bring paradise to us in a sweet dream.
