Fractured Days
Solitude is my only companion
My days are filled with quiet abandon
What fortune fell upon these days
To fracture in so many ways

Why is there a feeling of bereavement
What will it take to turn into appeasement?
Fair  or evil, it’s laid its...Read More

I hear those eyes
calling me 
quaking lips touch to kiss
trembling flesh is again refreshed

you kindle fire
arouse the pyre
abandon lines
two entwine

horizons crossed 
delivered relief emancipation 

my dear
the vista’s clear
two as twins entangle

but fruit rots
sweetness dies
falling from
fermenting vine

I Shall Not Judge
I shall not abandon you as your body dies
but pray instead for your tortured soul
God shall judge you before the end 
your conscience burdened with battle dead

as you travel alone by close of day

Slope innocent cheeks and naive exuberant faces

Round in circles and up and down goes the delight

Spinning laughter and giggling all through the night

Tinker bells chime on feathered dreams and foot hold

Coming together by staying away
Stops the transmission, holds infection at bay

Wash your hands often, that's where virus breeds

Premium Member Up The Wall
Consider the gecko splayed on the wall,
Leisurely ascending, taking its time,
A complacent lizard, sturdy but small,
Continuing slowly upwards to climb.
It is is uncertain if it has a goal,
Oblivious of its destination,
It maintains  a serene, debonair role,
Careless, it seems, of...Read More

I know of a land where truth once it did trod

A land where one often heard mention of God

Where the good was not twisted for one's gain

Where all of the words had meanings so plain

Where the rights of the many...Read More

mrs jenkins, dying of the corona virus leaves a letter for her baby caterina
My dear baby girl, asleep in your sacred keep,
Worry not, my little one,
Be at peace, my dearest, stay protected and sleep,
For my life, now, is undone.
I am dying, and there is nothing they can do.
Death is just outside my door,
But,...Read More

Premium Member The Veil Of Death

Buffed out with time's fine emery
Alzheimer's stole your memory.
And you sit in your chair and gaze
lost in a perpetual haze.

There is little left but a shell
you're not in pain, but don't look well.
And when I touch you, you pull back
as...Read More

Kansas winds
Wind spinners whirl like crazy
Chimes sing with wild abandon
Leaves whip into mini wind tunnels

Pick up the smaller animals
Toss them into the trees
Going for cars and trucks now

A semi lands with a crash on the freeway
Crushing people in...Read More

She rambles for the full forty-two minute phone call

They never cover their mouths.
They come in sneezing and hacking.
They are germ-mobiles, and I am stuck with them
They are walking disease-spreaders she hissed.
Not in a whisper, but more like a low voice the six-year-olds could hear.

I stare at her, wondering...Read More

"Do not go gentle into that goodnight,"*

He must, with every beat of...Read More

Clown at the Abyss
There’s nothing to lose now!
It’s all downhill from here!
No hope of salvation anymore;
nothing left to fear.
The worst has come, and still we’re here!

the future is never as cruel as one’s memory;
it is the memory that makes things...Read More

Melancholic Inception
Deliver me into my hell,
Load up the shotgun shells.

Save the words I will not hear,
I’ve decided to live in fear.

I’ll bury my pain in these scars,
As the PTSD sets off alarms.

If peace is money, I have no wealth
It’s hard to...Read More

A nudge

It’s a sanctuary I retreat to and hide...Read More

Premium Member Salvaging Remains Of Muse
“My muse died at 2 a.m.
she hadn't been well in weeks,
writing drab, soulless poetry
without alluring alliteration,
any references to the Greeks.

Too pooped to savor the flavors
of a good, old fashioned write,
she chose in her frustration,
to abandon her life station,
to just give...Read More
