What Lies Between Us
Daybreak arose when night had passed
Lush meadows mantled with drops of dew
Craving, I eagerly broke the morning fast
and eagerly reached my arms out for you

Our hunger sated, but we lingered abed
Once again, we were starving to death
What lies between us...Read More

Premium Member Do Not Disturb This Slumber
My sleep is dream-filled now --
imagined scenes, practiced dialogues,
never-voiced retorts --
fervid comments, loving words.
I resist awaking, lie in bed
clinging to a dream world --
and to that mind-constructed me within it --
to that better, truer self, 
that ached-for rosy apparition.

Night Shoes
Night shoes wait ‘til we’re abed
and tiptoe ‘round the room.
Slipping through the shadows,
and sliding through the gloom.
They wait where it is darkest,
where we can’t see at all,
they jump out into our path…
to make us trip and fall.

Highland Manor Coveted Hideaway
Temporary salient sunny solitary sight
does dole divine delight,
asper this dada to imbibe
delicious draught when uptight
fraught, viz sunkist radiant photons

packets of energy with
life giving hefty might
to warm formerly frost bitten cockles,
which secluded niche bracketed by slight
recess, where perpendicular brick walls

converge, forming...Read More

Destiny Wed
In the Song Of The Muses,
  the Prince heard his Queen

Now locked in a convent,
  her beauty unseen

The tower lay distant,
  its ramparts on guard

Just one point of entry
  a hero’s reward

The mist in the valley

1952
A train whistle riles up the dozing , dogs
They bray like coon hounds then shiver back to sleep
A honeysuckle screen quivers and dreams
The boys and the dogs are off to round up sheep

Smokey silence hisses with gas lamplight
Pipes on porches...Read More

You Foolishly Once Thought You Had It Bad: A Collaboration
When tons of doom filled nights fall on your head,
hot embers glow and fires burn unabated,
you recall her last breath and wish you were dead.
In a poem's sad lines you've been castrated.
From the heavens a voice thunders dire threats
about losses...Read More

CHRISTMAS EVE

He lay abed
That most tranquil of nights
Aghast at moon and stars
Dad had painted for his delight

In one charmed corner
A spider was swinging
From his thready design
Outside   strolling carolers singing

Then he rubbed his eyes
In wonder and awe
Blinked the pair...Read More

I love you he said as he lay supine abed.
Through veiled tears masked by a smile,
she glowed comely, masking fear and dread,
kissing weathered cheeks, gently,
her wares availed
and duly spread.
A gift of love to offer only one.

All pangs of fear now...Read More

Nature's Best


Nature’s Best

A coolness of the breeze whispers
Among the trees in a frolic lisper
As the squirrels chatter away
and a dog chases a boy in play.
The rose opens for all to see
God’s image of art so carefree.

Clouds cover and put sun abed

In a Castle on a Hill

My heart beats faster,
