Premium Member Be Kind to Others
Hillel the Sage was destitute
Although his mind was sharp, astute
Chopped wood to earn his daily bread
Then studied 'til he went to bed
The Golden Rule Hillel devised
Be kind to others; That is wise...
Treat everyone exactly as

In a small town twenty minutes North of where you live
an alien looks in a mirror and studies your face.
You don’t know it, but he has taken over the life
that you no longer use.
While you were sleeping
your life leaked back...Read More

I observe her from across the room, and I ask myself, is she real. Her long raven black hair falls softly across her shoulders. A gorgeous smile that brightens the entire room, is exquisitely accented only by her soft brown...Read More

Premium Member I Can Feel My Bliss
White lightning flashes through my heart’s bliss
Tumultuous light rose sky holds her own
Pink heart shaped aura shows the truth of the night
Sky clouded by purple blood clotting thunder clouds

White lightning flashes through my heart’s bliss
Reflecting on the waters of my...Read More

Premium Member CATWALK OF LIFE

Two-hundred dollar hairdo
Cascading off her shoulders
Dressed in a little black dress
And Louboutin stilettos
Leaving behind a trailing cloud
Of extravagant luxurious perfume
Flaunting the tiera of a princess
Strutting down the catwalk of life
Walking five inches off the ground
This svelt slanky body devoid of...Read More

I Past Paws

My tuxedo charm…
Echoes of purrs and meows linger in my lamenting longing heart.
Floating my fingers upon her feather fur…I now trace her feline grace in my mournful melancholy mind.
Her jade eyes, so jubilant and jovial, now aglow in...Read More

Monet's Impression, Sunrise

First impressions leave memories,
That can linger for a very long time;
And give a sense of peace and understanding,
That rewards the solitude of the mind
With satisfaction, in contemplative reflection.
This may be deceiving; as to lead one to believe
That which...Read More

Today I’d like to talk to you about how meter plays a part in
how we write a poem and sometimes in how we speak

The above lines, which are not at all poetic, are written in a specific 
rhythm, or meter....Read More

An albino girl in the neighboring camping lot
Loading my car
trying to hide my covert examination
Fine features accented by heavy white brows and lashes 
Colorless, shining hair 
Such a strange and elegant beauty
What is it like to be so different
Yet so lovely?...Read More

Last Ash
And like incense our scent takes to the air.
Ascending before we fall.
Her and I.
We burst into fire.
Our eyes a gaseous mixture. 
Ignited by the touch of skin.
Kindling the many thoughts we keep of each other.
A crackle blown out.
Accented in desire,
Our yearning...Read More

Of Hellos
We stood in the dark
Not a word spoke between us two.
We hardly knew each other yet,
We saw each other whole hearted.
The stars began to light up.
The moon above our heads.
Our eyes half full.
A civilization coming to life in the blink...Read More

Who We Are
Seductive tones filter the slumbered night
swashes of seda fill up an accented view
swirls of honeysuckle flicker in the breeze
and again the beauty of you is inhaled

Strip down low to the bare essentials
drench your soul in the waters of me
embrace fully...Read More

Other Side of the Sun
I've cried the tears ...
I've suffered the years ...
I've tasted the fears ...
Of a spaceman hurtling through the void
Loneliness grows daily on the inside,
as I continue this autopilot ride
to the other side of the sun
This tritainium space ship moves swiftly
towards...Read More

Spaghetti Grandma
Spaghetti Grandma

She scratches her pulpy ruby nose,
Heaves, and leans her heavy bosom
On the pitchfork, dangerously bending
The prongs over the swollen tomatoes.

Trying not to stare at the weary body
Enlarged like a blimp, obediently,
The child’s eyes avert the navy blue smock
Resting on...Read More

Revised Song
Shes the song thats constantly written
then revised in my head.
Only then is she able to come alive and be herself.
Accented in beautiful curve.
Revised in the moments shared in thought.
The slightest touch ; her voice truly heard.
Perfectly arranged in broken prose...Read More

Hey Otto
This is a true account
of a day in the life of me 

Woke up today
not feeling quite like myself
Went to see what the mirror had to say ...
I didn't appear to be
looking like somebody else
Gave myself the usual wake up:

Winter morning light filters through lace curtains,
Reaches down, spills onto the corner kitchen sink,
Through east and south facing windows.
The glass jar, the scrub brush and pad in plastic butter dish,
A down-turned, empty yogurt container,
The pink plastic rinse pan
Keep company around...Read More

The Laughing Lady Frights
I hadn’t noticed before now
that her smile was painted on
accented with deep crimson lipstick
her eyes too seemed to gaily laugh
outlined in black to pop out from
her pale languid hanging flesh

a perfect piñata ready to be smashed
what goodies lie within her...Read More

Pause for a moment for soft
breathed hopes,an interlude 
of words in embryo,a covering
now revealed ,an insight into
the rhythm of life.
This insight ,this impression echos 
of imagination,perhaps a literary
in verse,sounds with silences
voiced aloud.I leave now in your ear.

My Love Is Real
A pre-lit Christmas tree sparkles the entrance 

Monet, Van Gough, and Wassily Kandinsky prints 

adorn the walls of her sitting room

a dozen painted roses sit in a faux crystal vase

and the smell of apple pie lingers in the air
