Premium Member Words Between

You will say something mundane
then a sudden potency
will scratch my skin.

I mention an ordinary thing
and you show me where 
my words
are fine silk or a brief abrasion.

An invisible tissue
connects a common language
into questing passions.

I imagine the tympanic bones
of our ears...Read More

Setting Sun Skims the Ocean
Setting sun skims the ocean,
providing an orange motion,
a blaze shimmering sky
with angel clouds floating by.

Fiery reflection a few feet from shore,
a dramatic image adds to the nautical lore
of sunset upstaging daylight's role,
overcoming it with its dusky sole.

Nearby a mighty rock...Read More

Good Grief
By: Miracle Man

Many have uttered these words on some occasion,
“Good Grief," cant that person do anything right?

"The Hummingbird Cake"

The day started bright -

Bright Eggshell Blue
and ended in percussion
dark and cloudy stormed in
thunder pummelled drums
against a backdrop of 
bruised eggshell dijon yellow
sweating heavy sage green
spitting spoilt the swollen pride of purple,
a wet abrasion against 
Electric Blue

Man is identified by behavior.
I say man and she demands an
Accounting.  The definitive correlative
Can not be spoken.  The constant common

All caveats else no communion, no love.

Strolling along the sandy beach
The tide is far and away
I cannot glance into the sky, so blue and bright that day

Lit upon the grainy sands
Sucking from below
Quenching the tiniest of thirsts, just along the row

My sandals left behind
For a lovely...Read More

What is "love"? Consider ...

    Each biting lash of the ragged-toothed scourge,
 Skin, muscle and sinews flayed and discarded to dirt,
Each hematoma raised and bone broken,
 The shame of being stripped, spit upon, beaten, and cursed,

To disappear with the painful breath of time

Smiling like a toothless baby. 
Spreading happiness in hearts.
Touch her hand as she agreed. 
And talk imaginary memory.
Blushing like a female cat outcrop.

Smile glowing like a bulb in darkness. 
What a beautiful women.
