Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Price And Pride Of Status Earned


i have been watching people,
the way so many hurt others,
in a need to be special,
important, to have status,

happiness appreciation;
regardless of the cost
regardless of the pain
regardless of suffering

inflicted on others
in a demented race
to rise above agony
altar inscribed to humanity

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
