Premium Member FIRST LOVE an analysis
Dreams,desires,bitter so sweet
An adolescent trail trodden,
Engulfed by moods,melancholy and sudden;
Aches from a first love leaving,
Painful yet poignant;
Novel experience sadden,then abates
Then will gladden
As mellowed..anticipation awaits....Read More

Premium Member Love, known and unknown
As the trees' shiver with delight
at the fresh autumn breeze,
The cycle of life has met 
his match with her.

Her cloak now adorned with all
the fallen acorns,
while gently the sun abates
for less to see.

Its sensual warmth no longer felt
by lovers in...Read More

Premium Member Love's finest backdrop
Shimmering stars through barren trees –
I see far as the eye can see!
For clouds are in and snuggled tight,
reveling in this midnight sky.

Others join, as one by one,
each darkened house awaits the sun;
they slumber as the night doth play
and prosper...Read More

The splayed light of an obliging red sunset
lays upon the darkening meadow
of windswept grass

Slow-moving fingers in a visible dance
wrap in quiet space
when moonlight, silhouettes our hands
as they bond

A falling star etches the night sky
burning its canvas like a struck match

that remains in the filigreed dish that was your life,

a heart of crystalline rays

AFTER FALL
With the eye popped he seemed ugly
Mimicking the stinking diabolical
Image of the unimaginable hungry
Whose head the slug left unstable

The slug left the shell with mucus
To end into the seas of darkness
Where he swam the wagging focus
Whose empty shell spent relentless

Aloof Waft Ting Thru Spiritus Mundi
While rummaging, mining,
and distilling me gray matter,
stoking mentality activates
oft time surprising me,
where unexpected novel

cognizance never abates,
I experienced becoming
linkedin with cosmic fates,
sans collective unconscious
soul of the universe,
and chanced to espy,

(albeit only a trimmed speck),
the spirit of William Butler Yeats
considered one of...Read More

Premium Member The Dawning Sun
When spring is like the dawning sun
through frosted panes anticipate
the morning after winter's done.

In vernal womb where life's begun
the anxious babes of summer wait
when spring is like the dawning sun.

Another lace of frost is spun,
the doily art, so brief, abates

The Devil is in the Details
The Devil’s watch has started and the time is consummate
A strange and tranquil calmness mocks our terrifying wait
There, just beyond our window moves like fearsome reprobates
A pair of tortuous demons meant all Hell to perpetrate
We will not yield in panic!...Read More

Snow Boots
When streets are all covered with snow 
There's one thing I surely do know.
In order to stomp
On the snow hills and romp 
You need snow boots wherever you go.

Your toes will stay cozy and dry 
Even if more flakes fall...Read More
