Premium Member A Cornucopia of Colour
Intricate patterns, exotic flowers
  curl into royal insignias
    cultured eyes can devour
A cornucopia of colours  

Like a peacock's feathers on display
  expanding and contracting
    those myriad Eyes ~
Visual accordions at play

Memories at the Rivers Edge
The Saint John River rolls along 
Under skies of baby blue, 
Touching lives of country folk 
Just the way it used to do 
Before the war to better times, 
When steamboats churned and church bells chimed. 

The Continental whistle blew...Read More

Don't Bother Me
Don't bother me with conformity
don't bother me today-
with things I should (or shouldn't) do
or what I shouldn't say!

Don't bother me with conformity
my house is not “obscene”...
Orange, purple, and lavender
look lovely with lime green!

Don't bother me with conformity
I'm much too happy,...Read More

Saturday Farmers' Market
Saturday Farmers’ Market 

Here’s how it goes at our Farmers’ Market:
shoppers all ages, clothing, and races,
parents push bundled babies in strollers, 
children dash eagerly through the crowd. 
Others meander to and fro, seeking 
new food and old faces they know....Read More

Didn't Always Come Out Victorious

Whether or not I've been awarded several laureates
I'll tell you what the entire story is
Even though it wasn't all that glorious
And I didn't always come out victorious
It somehow became notorious
Even though at times I really didn't care for more of...Read More

Some People

some people beg in the corners of the streets –
cover themselves in rags of ex-clothes thickened by the streets’ slime
dig in trash for spoiled foods and dirty empty bottles
huddle above the sewage covers in the cold nights
and I...Read More

Premium Member The Pub II
Inside pub steins stout magic spoke
‘neath genie wisps of bangle smoke
Brown cone cigars, deep chubby pipes
Aromatic spills to breach the night.
Music calls to muted songs 
Rough knuckles echo Bodhrán drums.
Flute, melodeon, bouzouki*, mandolin
Penny whistles, uilleann pipes, one feisty violin.
Pied piper...Read More

Wander in my poem,
As if on the beaches of Copacabana.
Lay down on every one of its words,
as if on the warm, hazelnut sand.
Let the sun color your skin
and rest upon your back.
Forget who you are,
as I have been trying to...Read More

The Gypsy Dance Of Life

Last night I watched in silence
At the end of the road in forest deep
I hid amongst the trees watching in awe
As gypsies dance while others sleep
Under the violet hue of evening sky
Haloed by evening's golden moon
I watched gypsies dance...Read More

A faint footstep left behind since my birth
And a thousand years later, I found so clear
A burning vision from the flames of wailing hearts
A drum-beat, a bull-horn sound, a clap
A music of realities dorn, this hour...

... somewhere this day...
I live...Read More

Christmas Tidings Fill the Air
Christmas tidings boldly blare
Limp hands raise; taut lips flare
Minstrels and accordions pair
Rite, decorum forthrightly pare
Songs, instruments roundly declare
Strum the harp 'till spindly strings wear
Clang the cymbals revelry to share
Ring the bells no mirth we'll spare
Sing the melody a heartier fare
Loud...Read More

Cesoir, Avec Toi
Carols sang 
by accordions and violas
glaze tete-a-tetes 
with saccharine vim.
The winsome diction 
in the oui’s and moi’s
makes local tongues 
more suave to hear.

Above, the stars 
waltz with charm-
luring hearts 
to sigh in awe;
from croissant, the moon, 
assume a sphere
while fireworks...Read More
