Premium Member Heartbeat Of A Star
Oh, living, breathing star
     how beautiful you are.
You pulsate from afar- 
     our cosmic avatar.

Life beats inside your heart
     that rends dust-rays apart
so elements- impart

Confessions of a Shadow
I am an earthly phenomenon
as common as light itself.
And whereas all other things
exist as sone kind of substance,
as a shadow, I am unique in that
I exist with none of my own;
rather I am dependent on two
essentials – light and the...Read More

Premium Member Shadows
Written: by Tom Wright

Ghosts of previous years defy escape,
Emotionally swaddled in a bullet proof vest
I sit in the corner of my mind as if abducted.

In this abbreviated state I wander twixt reality, 
And dreams of my subconscious; 

While roaming through...Read More

Premium Member Dunes Correctional Facility

There is a ghost of sadness in this place

Premium Member Poor Man Beggar Man
She tinkers change someone left on the table
waiting for brunch at the Bluebonnet Bistro,
a hole in the wall with thick on the windows.

Lost deep to thought, this rock ‘n roll liberal
in her mid-twenties and sage satin stole,
pockets a penny that...Read More

Abbreviated Seconds
One Sunday afternoon last summer with the weather being great,
we decided we should carry on one normal summer trait,
and put on a ‘barby’ for the neighbours, so we can socialise,
while we have a drink of bundy and tell a heap...Read More

Tombstone Tales
Through graveyard
meandering, just
me and Dad
stories sad
abbreviated down to
mostly names and dates

So we tell
their stories by turns
like poor Duane
died at age thirty-three of
bee sting allergy

So tragic
how she caught a chill
age nineteen
who died before her wedding
day, her groom grieves still

Or the war
heroes,...Read More

Prevarication Invites Animadversion Plus Aggravation
After beguiling charisma,
damnable excoriations fixedly,
gamely, horribly, insult jesting,
kibitzing, loosely mindless nattering,

outlandish pablum, quintessentially
representing senseless trumpeting,
unswervingly vapid wordy
yawping zest.

If ye did not already guess from thee 
above blimey claptrap, Das English flap
doodle glib human incorporates jokingly,
kookily, laughably mashedup nonsensical, 

oddly, peculiarly,...Read More

Premium Member Crawling Toward My Grave
I'm barely crawling toward my grave
And lucky to have come this far! 
A life lived mostly not a knave, 
Or specimen in someone's jar.

It's not so easy to stay clear
Of folks who'd label us at times, 
A president so cavalier

Abbreviated by an early autumn night
the summer, once tormented by a torrid sun,
relented to September, as if dying might

Check out Darwin Barney's abbreviated slide and crawl into third

Cold, abbreviated February,
host to nobel, famous politicians.
Day commemorating dignitary,
valentines addressed on loving missions;
Cupid's bow delivers executions.
Leap year makes your stay a little longer,
winter's freeze and ice a wee bit stronger.

For thousands of years, ice giants were sleeping.
But now, these dense “blue ice” glaciers are weeping.
Warnings that in many ways bear repeating.
Global climate change speeds glaciers’ retreating.

In Alaska and Glacier National Park,
The melting of ancient glacial ice is stark.

Tainted beyond belief
Complacent, well being, in a covnant devil attitude.
