Lumps & Bumps


There are wrinkles, lines,

Osteo- this, osteo- that,

And then the bumps –

Perplexing lumps

From nowhere,

Showing up and growing,

Coming, and not going.


You think cancer, other

Causes and annoyances:

Worry, costs and doctors.

Signs and trends!

Oh, brother,

Will they never end,

These changes downward foul and fetid,

Sour, dour, cowardly?

Unsightly forms

Informing us

Of beauty’s loss, songs unsung,

Boss death and wretched other wrongs?

      I hope it’s me your referring to and not someone else. Such flattery! Such confirmation! You’re always welcome to sum me up as you see fit. My poetry is vastly varied but I think that if you follow it you will find a red line going through – a one of consistency that may just help you in life. I would so dearly hope so – to say nothing about appreciating the art.
      Write again.

      Dear Tas Ransel, I’m so consumed with writing I haven’t looked at comments till this minute. Like you, I’ve found them by accident – well, almost. Finding yours ‘makes my day’ as they say. Well, if you give me a Follow, I’ll be as grateful as an I-don’t-know-what (whatever the superlative of grateful is). I’m on my 17th book, my last two having come out only recently: “Circling Round Everything” and Birth, Death & In Between II”. You’re welcome to email me anytime. Then I’ll be delighted to tell you more. And do, do find the time to read my stuff. Warmly, Arlene

    Superb blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same
    topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get
    feed-back from other knowledgeable individuals
    that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please
    let me know. Kudos!

      Dear Jestin,
      Firstly, let me give humble thanks for your use of the word ‘superb’. Now to you question, do I know of any discussion forums…, the answer is no. I consult myself, and am myself a discussion forum, getting my tips from self observation and observation all around me. A long time yogi, I teach one class a week encouraging my lovely women (for they are mostly women)to be as observant. That is the best school. I read a great deal, consult Google a great deal, get tips from everyone and everywhere – and write it all down as poetry, my 16th book coming soon. I’m on Facebook. Just Google my name, it’s bound to show up in a number of places. You’re always welcome to contact me, question me in any form you wish.
