two abreast
a wall of flesh
i left my coat

from my mind
a looping

on my finger

from a played
plucked string

that made

Whatever Weekend

Being humble common pathways ere,
I ought traveled nearby that lea,
Past the margin of my home there,
Where the daffodils fickle sprightly,

As I shared the natural trail lead,
General impressions befall o'er sunlit,
E'er lighthearted to the bird's melodies,
I travailed the character of...Read More

Abreast in tank top

Seeds deflower battle myths

Red lace lingerie

Under shadow of turret

Flowing combat above doubt

Garland of poppies

Sword unsheathed for wild conquest

Guns orange roses

Heavy metal for comfort

White flag intimate cover

Make love and not war

Coronet for a bouquet

Tiara of peace

Sweet surrender in...Read More

Man of ages

The girls crowded the pavement, three abreast
all tapping at their phones, going to class,
one saw me, pushed her friend across the chest,
'get out the way, and let the old man past'.
Old man? I looked around, did they mean me?
Is that...Read More

gravity craves in the sky

weightless surrender -

comet reaches rock bottom

tides foam a lullaby

crested lengths wave -

ripples focus underneath

horizon lingers abreast

pain drenched capture -

currents expose lost hope

a life buoy tied to an anchor

flare soaked in life’s blood -

cess pool seizes cessation

Love Letter From The Soul XLVIII

Veiled in the mysteries of light
black cutting off the white
unmasked in the cotillion 

of life

no debutanted call
you said left, I was right
patience holding close
an eerie songless night

but the melody played for hours
in the breeze, the gentle tease
and the tide
washing upon...Read More

Premium Member The Calloway Mama
The Calloway’s mama was not unlike an octopus 
With tentacles in the PTA, the church, the A.A., 
She was involved in every aspect of whatever.
Her friends kept her abreast of what her six children were about.
When they were young, she...Read More

She was his pillion on the bicycle
The trees were bare and calm 
Fallen leaves carpeted beaten path
Her golden locks dangled in breeze.

He handed her a fresh crimson flower 
Fragrant long stemmed single Rose
She held it abreast , a balancing act
She...Read More

When days become shorter 
and the evenings longer 
by the bow of Christmas time 

No greater joy then reliving 
the celebrations of yonder 
through eyes of hope 

When tinsels dance abreast 
a plump old Christmas tree
the heart in waiting 

rejoices...Read More

A Day in The Life Of Shirlene
Written: by Tom Wright
January 2015

Stroking her hair was the morning sun,
Early rising, just to grub her chickens;
Time is scant for getting all things done,
So, throughout the day her step quickens.

It's do the laundry, then...Read More

In the pocket of chest

too many men
don't look a

make her her

Dreams Follow Me

My dreams follow me everywhere
And, around each nook and corner
My pains stand abreast mocking me,
Laughing loudly at my frailty and spine.

That crisscross the park where my memories
Arrogantly stand guard; they had forever
Brutally suppressed...Read More

At any proffered instant, implies love.
Love stays consistent midst souls synergy.
Offerings concerning depth, flights a dove.
Heightens promptly per blazon glittery,
Albatross compensation inwardly.

Avarice charms enlighten, not consume,
Lure some timeless, tempestuous heirloom.
Wherein, the victor and victim cite one,

Dreams Part 2
A fairytale, commercial.
Raining onto minds window sill
An unfathomable deep.
Abominable monster on Life's seven seas.

 Dreams, the valuable current sea.
A two edged sword for those sailing on the razors edge.
Balancing on it's journey.

They can bring us under the spell

Love me, love me not. Doves flew; kneeled. 
Breaths of flaunting daisies yield.

Bed of grassy emerald field; 
Bequeath, abreast

Beneath daunting, darken gray of heaven.

The Fall
August carries with it every time 
It comes again—like a familiar rhyme—
The sweet and tender sense of bygone days
Like this; a promise kept that all will be
All right for friends and family, and me.

Proceeding it each year, September’s kiss:
