Silent Screams after Abu Sheriff
These words are ghostly voices 
Heard from the ruined of hunted houses 
Unheard by those innocent ears,
tormented by accomplices who sit in fear 

These words are writers’ thoughts 
Fertilized when their ink meet their papers
Bringing forth testimonies of those unheard...Read More

Premium Member One Hump Or Two
I thought I knew about camels
But then found out, that's not the case
I thought they had a hump or two
And that they might spit in your face!

They will only spit when threatened
So don't be acting all crazy
What actually threatens them...Read More

I found my heart and spirit grieving deeply today
That evil would take your blossoming beauty away
Your selfless hearts and genuine love was seen daily
While your compassion in many lives was needed to stay

The real love in your hearts was always...Read More

Come my love past the beauty of the hill
Ablaze with ginger sunset and fall fire
On a fast downhill wagon hayride thrill
In festive saffron and amber attire
Celebrating with tambourine and lyre

I'm A Psycho

Premium Member Oh, Sir
Oh! Sir!

Great teachers changed the world for me,
I sometimes dreamed of teaching too!
"Yet, 'gift' to teach!" stays blasphemy
While 'taught' to teach still make kids blue!
The Peace Corps pushed some faults aside,
Grace opened doors to serve with pride,
New languages, to serve...Read More

Absence is Presence
If the cock
lived on a steep hilltop
away from immediate vicinity
we'd tell tales of it on moonlit nights
we'd call its comb a crown
an insignia of its superiority.
At dawn we'd savour its "heavenly" crows
with relish.
When the hunters brave the slope
and capture it,

Here But There
“Where do you come from?” is a query, that most of us have heard
And the answers that are given range from honest to absurd
“My mother” might be appropriate , if a jerk you want to be
But past contrite; the question,...Read More

Inviting hills
O to tune in to good times of childhood—
To re-live gone-by years, not just to brood,
To lighten dust-laden baggage’s dead tare,
To unburden mind of deadwood afloat, 
To fast-forward to dusky days of old, 
To turn over life’s leaf now withered...Read More

Arrested for thoughts
Of carnal delights
Tortured in the heat of a desert night
Poisoned, a corpse of poetic disdain
They do not care for the verses I write

Demons walking on holy water
I turned that water to blood red wine
They drowned
Drinking it in, I...Read More

Space Queen

Zekarian space queen
Ruler of the sacred realm, 
where resides the seven suns
that encircles the vast
Irthendai nebula islands
She, of regal royalty,
holds the scepter of cosmic fire
The energy of a thousand volcano clouds
crackles at the raising of her fearsome rod:
A theta wave...Read More

A Bed-time Whispering With My Wife
A Whispering With My Wife

My heart swells with joy.
To shops, to old house , to sheep in the meadow;
Holding his hand , on shoulders , or following him like shepherd behind lamb.

Mt Rushmore

What proud Americans see,

Graven image glory ...
Mount Rushmore
Four faces carved into 
a mountainside
South Dakota idols looks like 
the one in southern Sudan

circa 1200 B.C.
Four Pharaoh figures
standing tall 100 feet
Graven images carved into
a mountainside
To bear witness

Unlike most
I have been over there
Where life is nothing
Mummy and daddy blown in the air

Where little ones starve
Where big ones kill

Of tyrants bombs

We traveled,

Left abroad, as all things that pass. 
We were the only thing that furnished the space around us. 

Without a single word. 
We partook in sights that denounced us as things. 
We soared as...Read More

The Poets Duel

I consider myself the poet
Of historic love affairs
Not the Romeo and Juliette’s we all know
The ones mirrored in lesser history of lore
Like Heloise and Abelard
I was the king of this poetic style

Then came along the competition
He thought somehow...Read More
