Premium Member The Real Truth About Love
Not all, but most forms of love do more damage than good. The one universal proof is that countless people improperly raise children. Look where those poorly raised children go to, essentially everywhere. Being misguided and not being able to...Read More

What to do do about those under the table
What to do about those under the table?
When those paying them are unable,
And have gone back to their scrabble.

Should we be worried they might become unstable,
When a constable is to us unreachable.

If an amnesty was the solution most suitable,
Would they...Read More

Quiet Soul
Quiet Soul

Her skin is that of alabaster. Wide circles of red rouge pronounced her thin lips and each cheek.
She is soulfully unique.
Her hair of dried stalk was approving to her eyes of vacuous emeralds.
She traveled the two blocks from her...Read More

A Brief History of Angels
In the history of medieval religious art
angels are assigned an important part.
Yet you’ll never see one depicted fat,
overweight or obese or anything like that
because they don’t eat three meals a day
like humans do, therefore slim and trim stay.
And why they...Read More

But You Are .... (1 Peter 2: 9-12)
In  Christ you have been changed
made alive unto Him a holy son

Premium Member The Virus Is Us
A fiesty Zen priest recently told me,
"Earth's most toxic virus is humanity".
Riding on this muddy blue ball so lush
could we only be a bit of carbon slush?
A tiny blink, a galactic tale untold
while on a grand scale not really that...Read More

Quarantine for contest
Yesterday we complained over, familiar routine
We longed for a break from the American dream
But things have, since, changed
The world rearranged 
Now complaining to walls, about life, quarantined

In these difficult times, many things go through my mind
Many people I left behind, a family estranged
I still worry about them, even with all that was wrong
I still care about many, who's connections I once had

Premium Member Rara Avis

Like all things related to screwballs
and misfits
I was born looking for a word
inside a clock.

Back then, time ticked loudly,
clocks ran faster than chipmunks. 
Young bones were fueled by green grenades
plucked from low-hanging life-lines.

I needed words to save the world,
I needed...Read More

Hey PoetrySoup Folks-
I picked "cinqku" because I don't know 
what form that is, and I'm too lazy to
look it up; but if you've ever read any

want to lead anyone down a particular
path, but just that...Read More

Back in our day
With this virus locking us all in
Kids all at home making a din.
Like headless chickens in a stew,
No one knows just what to do.

The old ones should take care,they say,
They can't look after themselves.
Back in the day we did alright,

From My Cabin
From my cabin in Willow, Alaska,
Sleeping Lady greets me each day,
she is the princess 'Susitna' who is asleep,
her story is woven with several myths,
Grandma told me a native legend of old,
about a young woman who waited in vain
for her warrior...Read More

Our meeting
And my greeting
It’s nice to see you
It was overdue,
I see you every day
You never came my way,
Once I’ve got the spirit
Yet I’ve got nothing illicit.

I know what you mean
I also was keen;
I hoped you asked me out
For about you...Read More
