Hurt Bag

Filed under: Day Gun — Tags: , — Ralph E. Cook @ 3:21 pm

Stuffed in the hurt bag

Been here 4 weeks

Trip on my lip

What do I seek?

Waiting around for healing to take

Dark feelings found while thinking mistake

Hope took a walk lost in the woods

My Love for You strong

stand tall and do good

Pluto 7th House

Filed under: Day Gun — Tags: , — Ralph E. Cook @ 6:00 pm

Walking 4 answers

Talking through trauma

Riding the seas of patience and drama

Fleas on Pluto’s back

Vaccine slap boom

A chance at at True Love

worthy of wounds

Heart Fire, Soul Fire returned

Thank You this life

I strive 2 learn

Skaug Farm

I was raised on the Skaug farm two miles west of Rothsay Minnesota. The Skaug family is a mystery to me, even though I feel intimately connected to them. My grandfather Garnett Johnson share cropped the Skaug farm and was willed the property following Inga Nettie Skaug’s passing. Netti passed while talking over the phone with my grandmother Lovey (Laverne).

Nettie, Ida, two youths unkown, Pauli and unkown Nettie, Pauli, Ida, unknown

Around the age of three or four, I remember visiting Nettie with my grandmother.  I was not allowed to enter the house and had to sit and wait on a chair in the entry. Nettie might have worried that I would break something valuable, or maybe there was fear I would freak out from her taxidermy animals? It’s hard to say for sure.

Four of the five Skaug children died on the farm where I was raised and after Nettie’s passing, the Wilken County Historical Society acquired most of the family’s possessions. A few boxes of photographs and records have been passed on to me and I might write a book someday titled; “Skaug Farm” chronicling my research into Hilmer, Pauli, Ida, Inga Nettie and the pipe wrench inventor Johan Skaug and their parents Peter & Olava (Skagness).  IMG_1091Johan Skaug

There are some who considered the Skaugs’ house to be haunted and my mother and I did experience a few extraordinary happenings during our time there.  I hope to someday share what I discover about this talented family and in the process reconnect with my childhood self who will forever cherish his time at the Skaug Farm.

We like you best nice and sleepy
Count the sheep and don’t be weepy. 
Pay no mind all is fine
Let us pour you more red wine.
You say it hurts when awake?  
For heavens sake, take this and this to find escape. 
Do monsters hide under the bed?  
We demons lie behind the curtain sleepy head.

Pull My Finger

Filed under: Day Gun — Tags: , — Ralph E. Cook @ 2:37 pm


Shadows surface killer whale
Shark fin lockless monster tale.  
Hold the reigns this woolly mammoth
Pull my finger trickster hand fist.
Let me kiss you here goodnight
Sweet dreams fight lucid fright.
Talking back to the mirror
You could use a trim hear hear.
What you will until fulfilled
Nothing’s free there is a bill.

Wanna fight? I bite.

Filed under: Day Gun — Tags: , — Ralph E. Cook @ 8:38 am


Heard your heart beating. 
            A tap on the window…let me in…let me in
                                                                                                              bad directions brought you
You want my body to burn?  Burn it
You want bones to break?  Break them
Take   it   all   out on me. 
Then be free. 
For awhile 
Until another triggers your belief.
                                                                            Summon the witch mob if you like, but remember I bite.

Winter Me

Filed under: Day Gun — Tags: , — Ralph E. Cook @ 4:29 am


Wait.   Wait.   Rest.
Winter me. 
Everything in
the Great Hollow Tree. 
A warm whisper tongue
sings it true.
Some days I get it wrong,
someday flowers bloom. 
Some days I fled to run
from falling night. 
Quiet heals,
reflection brings sight.
The time is ripe,
ripe for you.
To say I Love,
I Love You True.

Trophy Hunt

Filed under: Day Gun — Tags: , — Ralph E. Cook @ 3:33 am


Dear ones beware,
there are trophy hunters out there
who long to skin bare
your conquered carcass without care.
Never real or sincere,
your love a meal for their lair.
For until you prepare
to shield yourself for spiritual warfare,
the wild horse of your heart
may be mounted like a trophy hunt.
