Premium Member A Ghostly Tear


O’ crooked branch and magpie’s claw,
yon rusted chains a’ sway this night
Clutch tight a sign “The Seagull's Squall”
of splintered wood and storm clouds fight
Old tavern lone this craggy shore
where angered waves accost the sand
and drenching rains from heavens pour,
whilst thunder...Read More

Premium Member A Blemished Sky

splotchy clouds

squeeze billions of


from a blemished

sky bruised with purplish

charcoal grey


as lightning


and thunder

accost the

the face of heaven

summoning the mournful

of weeping angels

The Theme Of Love

A species creature flew downward
a half a million years ago
to find its nest and feed its young
to trudge on and repeat the day

their sounds emitted and were cast
into the air to echo far
into the dieties of sound
worshipped...Read More

There is a man with the courage to live
with no legs or arms; he can't even crawl.
He begs for coins, most aren't willing to give,
plopped in the street, like a broken doll. 

Hardened hearts walk by with barely a glance,
or...Read More

crisp white uniform
like pure white ocean foam
his eyes navy blue
for he winked at the sea
his shoes polished squid-ink black
with superior shine
his medals proudly gleam
the Captain grins, wants to salute him
eagerly waits his turn
his fellow seaman — some like him
others hold...Read More

Premium Member 7 Winter Haiku

climactic climax
satiation’s fulfillment
lost in oceanic drift

the wind cannot rest
a vagabond wanderer
for it is the wind

angered screaming winds
accost the comfortable
a paradise lost

headless sparrows hide
dreams beneath feathers of hope
wind screams at the trees

December downpour
rain skates across frozen ground
wet reindeer shiver

children cling to...Read More

Without a Warning
Without a warning, you can find
Your life completely changed
And all your daily habits
More than likely rearranged.

An unexpected illness,
Loss of job, divorce or stroke
May surprise and then accost you
While your plans go up in smoke.

Though we know that nothing’s certain,
Still, what...Read More

Premium Member PARADISE
The shrouds of clouds slim whim accost the sun —
The phat and fat, ruddy red and horizon muddy one.

Underscore of wavy grass, a sea of bees, life’s core.
A hiss of bliss, a slap, a tap of tippy-toe on crazy shore.

Those who tell us to be NICE
they shout their PC gospel
in your face
while admonishing you for
your rebuttal
They accost each other
like third graders
left alone in the
school yard
when cornered
by a simple inquiry
point wildly
“He/She started it”
they cannot abide
the sound
of one hand clapping
insist on...Read More

Unlimited Access To Success For All
God on my side
Guides my path and controls ripples
That endeavor to sneak astride
Initiatives I take in triples

To galvanize and utilize my talents
To the fullest in concordance with the Creator’s specifications and intentions

On one cloudy fall day.

On one cloudy fall day, a breath was taken when you past by me.

On one cloudy fall day, the gates to my heart were opened when you glimpse at me.

The elegy in a Man's throat
Where take I this little fortune
Upon the measures of my obligations
To fight my self problematic battle
and cater for and feed my little nation
Though the sun wakes to find me alive
but only to add more to my daily cries
Silently do I...Read More

Unleash your reign to only I, truth be wary of accost,

Gentle godhood now to falter, weep not for me, but...Read More

In God Alone, I Trust -Psalm 56
Crying out for God's merciful grace
to overcome the attackers of mine
all of the day my enemies trample me
in the pride, they accost me like wine

In my fearful thoughts so plentiful
I turn to God alone with all my trust
He whom I...Read More

On a dive to wreck of good ship "Soul"
I noticed a door locked tight.
Over I swam to peer inside a keyhole
Expecting it be blocked up tight.

In shock I pulled eye back in awe.
For I saw an eye in hole

Born of frustration
This manifestation of colour that springs from a genome , eternal, nourished, weathered and fashioned by a dyadic fornication cradled in time. 
A pigment of hues in an utterance of undertoned, ubiquitous discourses, leaves an impression of stereotype and a...Read More

In low tones we chatted
On the steps to her porch,
We talked of the decades
Since I’d carried her torch—

Of love we knew nothing
During young naïve years
Of kissing and fondling
‘Til I left her in tears,

For the navy enticed
With ships and adventure:

Teeth of Doom
Crashing, roaring breakers
accost a rocky shore,
rising jaws of granite, 
recalling myths of yore.	

Raging winds shouting out
their dares to one and all,
do torment the sailors,
like evil Satan's call.

A mighty fist of water
reaches for inbound ship.
Struggling in the breakers,
it must escape the...Read More

I was a runner
fleeing from homespun horrors that
wrapped around my delicacy like a tourniquet

Only a child attempting to bestir
the warrior dormant within;
having no idea the enthrallment 
she reveled in,
I learned to accost my demons

Nigh, even at the wide-eyed age of...Read More

A Fugitive
A Fugitive
Bus Stop Overland Park, Kansas   7:35 PM

A furrowed brow and furtive eyes
that refuse to engage another,
striding quickly through the crowd
and putting people between him
and the police car.
He is hardly the drifter or the hobo.
His walk remains crisp,...Read More

Darkness -- Lost or Found
Have I been lost, or am I found?
I search for footing on this new ground
Ghostly shadows do accost, 
Have I been found, or am I lost?

These ghostly shadows haunt the night,
I pray to keep them in my sight,
For if I...Read More

The Last Strains Of The Decrescendo

Dancing at the masque party time flew leisurely on downy feathers
The night was still youthful, the breath enjoying every fragrant inhale
The last strains of the decrescendo were still in my ears
