.nothing found this time. by Sonja Benskin Mesher

they may not like a controversal opinion, so cross it out in black.

i think that red may hit the mark better if there was a facility we

we used to amuse, may be delight, then it was censored. banned


to the bin.


quiet now, you will not hear any controversy, you may only read it



cancelled my apprenticeship

straws by Sonja Benskin Mesher

bible quotes.

the moving finger wrote,
needles in  camels eyes and something.

then there is that straw, and sod’s law,
which is something else entirely, like

money for old rope, which could tether
sad creature.

humped, and lumpy kneed moves on,

in other places,
they broke  things,
and were  put assunder.

imagining vases, that could be stuck,
we wandered wearily, until
the birds stopped singing.

yes, even in mexico.


#google by Sonja Benskin Mesher

it is a simple thing.


we hope for independence, privacy.


so we google, ask advice and listen.


take our time, let the thought wander,

heal ourselves.



we can even mend the  typewriter,

gifted by a friend, now there is a lovely



soap cleans the ink away;  wind will

blow the water, dry the chimney,

clear the floors.


we have kept the old ribbon,

in a box.

.random. by Sonja Benskin Mesher

mostly think so these days, even when worked out as planned.

have been wondering what is the point, like is there a point?

or is it all pins and needles. over lunch, we discussed.

i chose the duck wraps, minding my pronunciation. she pointed
out that the point may be, that there is none, therefore
being one.

I am going back to montgomery to buy a measuring

. now it is my turn . by Sonja Benskin Mesher

so i thought, yet time indicates habits,
caring for others even the inanimate.

worrying over squirrel that stole
the chicken grain, grave danger
of losing life.

yes, it is my turn now, and this
includes all of lifes little
and difficult spellings.

typing comes hard when the cat
paws the bed, and thinks it her time too.

so it is, we must all have a turn, and refer
to the thesaurus regularly.

then we will learn another word
for it.
