Moonstruck BC
The light of the moon is the comfort of the night,
and the flight of dreams sees by its golden glow.
The stars that surround its corona are as jewels,
that lay upon the moons' black velvet shoulders.
The mountain wolves call to announce...Read More

Premium Member Flirting with a Butterfly
Her face assumed a distant air,
     A strong veil of old sadness.
She was relatively still young.
     A butterfly in her prime of life.

Yet she felt heaviness of heart

The Summer of 2019
I know that one day I won’t feel this way
I know that this summer will be a blur
When someone mentions the summer of 2019 I will smile absentmindedly and whisper that was a good summer
But I won’t remember your faces

The Wayside
Over the years
some were carefully carried
tied up in tiny bundles
held tight against the heart

While the other
more awkward ones
were pulled behind in a cart
like so many precious parcels
taken along for the ride

But a few fell
and rolled astray
off by the wayside
along the...Read More

Nan
Sewing machine, long idle, gathered dust
Absentmindedly, Jackie wrote her name
thereupon, watching as dust motes floated
upwards, caught in sunset's evening rays
Brushing away a tear, she turned around
surveying, Nan's neglected room
provoked, a vague feeling of emptiness
Psychically, Jackie, quite distinctly heard

Saudade
Saudade, assiduously dumping buckets of gelid-infused water overtop my vehemently flickering flame.

Arrogantly reigning my banished feelings of joie de vi-vre.

Undermining my drumming heart, snapping both ligneous sticks into splinters.

Duping our garish star, precipitating a myriad of inexorably raucous winters.

The secret lives of chimney pots VI
Strategically placed when raised 
Upwards
By your masterful and well 
Practiced hand.
To mingle with ever changing 
Skylines 
That frown down with arrogant 
Scowls
Upon the indigenous populous of 
This just and tolerant island.
To study and pontificate upon 
Predictable behaviour, 
When so lamentably...Read More

Mermaids
Mermaids

I have seen them in
the gray, untimely dusks,
gleefully playing with lost ships
among coral rock,
golden hair tossing about
like mad witches,
as they flit in and out of
barnacled portholes.

They ride on autumn tides
near sun bleached inlets
sailing with north winds,
humming absentmindedly like
star fairies,
flinging sea...Read More

Premium Member Lost

The evening air is warm; the sky 
ablaze, splashed in hues of scarlet red.
Lost in reverie, she sits on the porch, 
on her favourite woven wicker chair.
Absentmindedly, she twirls her finger 
round a strand of silver-white long hair, 
reminiscing, eyes...Read More

The Last Request
The knob turned
And opened the door
The door of the apartment
On the first floor
And the sudden gasp
Of air that the fireplace exhaled 
Knocked an ember 
To the floor
An ember that had been glowing
In the hearth
The room, a peaceful space
Warm but gloomy
As...Read More

Men
We're grouped together ready to party 
just standing around waiting for the coach.
Not a stag do exactly, just us men.
Before you ask, it wasn't fancy dress.
A football Friday night out for a drink,
one or two, possibly looking for sex.

Absentmindedly, I placed
the slice of orange
in my mouth.

As my teeth penetrated
the thin outer skin
the flavor burst on my senses 
like fourth of July sparklers.
          
I closed my eyes 
to savor the...Read More

Part 1: Confusion of the muse
The large, bright Winter moon shone it's heavenly light over and out amongst the snow-covered city. The city was large, the city was noisy. It was midnight and the bustling still urged on. People ached for a screaming, gangs clutched...Read More

Spaghetti
A click, click 

and the burner lights

tonight

I am not going anywhere 

but the end of the hall where

the broken fluorescent light

can help me cook and write


A red frothy sauce bursts, hot steam

rising up, mist over

a scratched tin pot

a dirty burner...Read More

Pride of a Woman
I was walking 
absentmindedly on 
the street
When I saw a sight 
luvly to behold.
This sight fit to take 
a man off his seat
Cos it's one that is 
but for the bold!

I have been 
oblivious of its 
presence

Remembering Your Lost Love Again

He Should Not See Death
old enoch goggleyed and goatbearded
strolling with a jealous god
under a silksilver sun
beneath a stonewashed cotton sky
stopped
sighed
tugged at his rusty sackcloth toga
trailed a barebrown
caloused big toe through
the ochre coloured sand
stung a split nail on a surprised scorpion tail
and solemnly suggested

Absentmindedly
Again looking through judgment 
Before broken conclusions could be drawn
Subjected to day drifts of a pawn
Eternal distractions of ailment 
Never solid in your establishment 
Total consciousness is gone
Minimal dreams at dawn
Internal daze while fluid is absent
Neglected recognized logic within
Down the...Read More

Praying in her back room
Her eyes focused on her Father

Never giving up
On her family, 
Making it her mission to 
Embrace love and the ability to 
Nestle their desires

Love and trust is all...Read More

and she sees the blue of the summer sky

Jimmy’s Genetics 

I used to see them almost every day
Same bus stop
To go our separate ways
Ginger freckled haired boy
And his Mother

Little Jimmy was a curious kid
Always questions
Why Mum why Mum why Mum why
Always made me smile

The Taste Catching Hold (part 1)
Here it is,
    the taste lingers
pulling at my core,
gnawing 
       at that spot behind my ear.
“How will I act?”
rampages through my mind
    splintering everything
in its path.
