CRIMSON DEW
Were they mad crazed drunk or on drugs
As they desecrated a place most holy Ooh
Were they conceited or just plain diabolic
As they committed an abominable act Ooh

The Holy of Holies why they did not respect
Were it that a Holy one...Read More

The crimson sun goes down the cold horizon slowly
Through the drizzle of the ebon night twilight glows
The shining stars spout one by one in the milky way
Cosmic dance of constellation begins in the sky silky.

Premium Member Precious Autumn Leaves

When with closed eyes in Autumn's eves of gold-
I drift to thinking all about that Fall-
where our young daughter moved in Florida
to find a job she loved and could uphold.

We live up North where seasons are fourfold;
come Autumn- Summer's green...Read More

Premium Member In Autumn's Eves of Gold

*When with closed eyes, in autumn’s eves of gold,
I lie back on soft grass and feel the sky's
remaining warmth that emanates from sun,
I think of all the beauty to unfold.

I open up my eyes. The sun has rolled

Down the street as I was drifting with the city's human tide
It occurred that perhaps a million were in this streaming flow
And I..I knew not one and cared not that I was here alone
For there were things to do and...Read More

A hellish path to the grave
The candle light never stopped burning for aeons ago,
A hushed rustle of applause testified to a widespread approbation,
That was on the day he was certificated in the University,
Indeed, he was a bookish arbiter of conduct; a balanced moral fibre.

Behind the cold bars
Poverty stricken,
Defrauding them was unintentional,
But the magistrate's judgement and sentence was constitutional.
We have been on the street,
Hustling, surviving but making money remains strict.

In prison,
the Black Maria opened and the warder uncuffed him like a preath,
There he could feel the icy...Read More

HOW TO BECOME FIREFLIES
How To Become Fireflies






For a man to live 

He must first be born.

For a man to be called

He must first speak in tongues.


For a man to believe 

He must first see not hear.

Premium Member Betrayal
Betrayal cuts like a knife
Spears the heart, bleeding with pain
Causing life to spin in strife
Betrayal cuts like a knife
Places a double edged memory in life
Anger is fueled, as tears rain
Betrayal cuts like a knife
Spears the heart, bleeding in pain

Late in the day or afternoon
From windows in our living room
We watch deer begin to gather
Leaping over fences in fields
Searching eagerly for their meals
To our front porch they meander
Mothers protective of their fawn
Will hide them in brush all day long

Lost in a Melancholy
I remember when I met you...
I was just a scared kid who knew
Life was thirsty for all my tears.
You told me it would be okay,
I believed, but to my dismay,
You were wrong...it was what I feared.
Your optimism did nothing...
Except make...Read More

Sweet angel orchids, tender pearls of white,
glistening in the misty morning dew.
Perfumed with scents that bring senses delight.

Inspiration for a poet to write,

When held, ivory petals feel so...Read More

Premium Member The Conundrum of Early Roses: Saraband Sonnet
Outside new rose buds contemplate
the future, should we bloom or no,
and tempt our own vermillion fate?

We are not winter's afterglow,
they muse, but amulets of grace,
consider buildings stacked in place
without decorum or brio!

Which is the greater of the two
in March--intentions must...Read More

True Loves Maze
the softness of her osculating,
doth set my mind ablaze!
my blood doth boil, percolating.

my thoughts, do me amaze!
nigh on a half of a century,
perambulated, true loves maze!

finding niches, O yes, aplenty!
culdesacs, joy, momentarily bliss!
her eyes begged, but patiently.

The Peace We Should Have Had
Moral decay comes from man's godlessness
Like tendrils slowly choking a country.
Man's pride and arrogance, his ruthlessness
All bring about the chains of anarchy.

A blinded people turns away from God
And what is right and wrong they fail to see,
They don't know He's...Read More

I was asleep
And in my dreams were visions
Visions of beauty grandeur

Such wonders
A delight beautiful as prisms and lights and they were. . .

They were wonderful to behold
My God I sure enjoyed
