Happy Earth Day

This is the time to meditate 
  to excavate and educate our mind
to rejuvenate our planet 

Let nature reverberate within us
  While we appreciate her tessellate 
 let's celebrate her every gift
in all her seasons

Overrate, Spring 
 underrate, Winter 
 Yet each a necessitate 
  in the process of Mother Earth

 So this Earth Day 
let's become a replica
of her restorative nature
by demonstrating
with support
 for her protection

Whiff of Memory

that flow in 
  Black Orchid steams

mimics the 
 pulse to my heart 
the heat of our passion

blankets me
in a sarcastic 
whiff of memory

John B.Shaposka

He wandered around aimlessly
 in the blank spaces
and empty rooms
 in my mind.

The Tormentor of my days
the Incubus of my nights.

 Until he finally walked into
a room he couldn't escape.

There he faded away to nothing...
