Premium Member Ghost in Halloween
A ghost accosted his counterpart
“Let’s have a talk heart to heart”
It was that dark night of Halloween
People dressed as ghosts and goblin!

“They mock ghosts all over this town”
“Dressed as skeletons in black gown”
“Painted faces with blood and tooth”
“Nothing at all...Read More

last call for lonely hearts
Luscious 22, draped his lustrous golden curls on the counter vinyl,
astride the bar stool to my left, pouting thru the drunken miasma 
saturating the Torch Club, now eerily muffled as band instruments
tucked themselves, back into cushioned coffins. Immediately right,
casually reclining,...Read More

Premium Member The woman in the mirror
I look into a mirror most days
And wonder who she could be?
That strange gray haired lady
Looking back at me with glasses
On her eyes and wrinkles on
Her face. 

She’s a total stranger to me
I remember the sparkle of eyes
The clear, smooth...Read More

Premium Member HOME ALONE AT NIGHT
I'm soaking in a nice hot bath,
Ridding myself of the day's aftermath.
Then it begins, a dripping noise,
This house can play tricks like bad little boys.

It seems to be coming from inside the wall,
But it's been checked before and there's no...Read More

Suicide of Jeffrey Epstein equals Pyrrhic victory
Rigor mortis cold comfort
defendant need not appear in court
diminishes attendant prosecutorial effort
habeas corpus made superfluous
courtesy just dessert morte
but deadman outflanked plaintiffs sport.

Nonetheless millionaire financier and
accused sex trafficker
found dead by suicide
on Saturday August 10th, 2019
doth not absolve his guilt

Premium Member The UnAltared CoPassion Call
Our UU ecofeminist minister
was verbally accosted one Sunday morning
after celebrating multicultural peace
and respect 
and integrity
sufficient to restore private ego- and public eco-justice.

This was far too much to take in,
to peacefully and holistically rake in,
for a visiting,
perhaps stalking, 
apartheid anti-socialist

Whose most...Read More

Premium Member Do I Walk or I Walk Me

Suddenly I stopped
inspired by a questioning thought;
am I walking or I’m walking me?
Am I a becoming or a being?
The whole system called I or he or she
is a cosmic reality
yet a thirst aided by insight
welled up from inside;
can this really...Read More

Premium Member Try Not To Look
A backwards glance. Subtle? Absolutely not, but
paranoia has been steadily rising. The footsteps are
Running behind me now, closer and closer.  Loud, in a ferocious
Way.  Am I going to get knocked down? Kicked? Accosted?
I jump off the sidewalk, turn...Read More

Premium Member The Ghost Of Edgar Allan Poe
Accosted many years ago
By the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe
I'm now obliged to come forthright
About that dark eye-opening night.

It's only fair to let you know
I've held a torch for Mr. Poe
It's all because of the ink of his pen
That my...Read More

Solitary Wanderer

I'm a solitary wanderer
Guided by the winds and the sol rays 
I roam through lonely valleys
Sipping from streams to streams 
Riding on cascade , up and down 
Sleeping under stars and silver moons 
Night’s canopy as tent
Wandering in the verdant...Read More

Best Ever Fisherman

While as a carouso I was singing,
Sound in fish  had been bringing;
Natural talent,
And so reliant;
Best ever fisherman I am being.

Laurah Maybelle Rickborn

1907-1935

Life was such a excruciating bother.
I’m happy the long drama is finished now.
My childhood consisted mostly of chores and lessons,
While my teenage years were devoted to daydreams,
Dancing, and the work I did ceaselessly,
On my parents’ modest farm on...Read More

As I was walking in the snow 
I was accosted by a crow
It did not like my face
I ran and it gave chase
Amused onlookers watched the show.

THE STALKER

Winter World

Frosted pines accosted 
Crystal flakes 
Roaming in the gloaming

Melancholy valley 
White and wan
Pathos rules the sick snows

Dull unpredictable 
Winter breeze
Whistles through the thistles

Valiant hills and pliant  
Willows dance
Spilling sadness chilling 

Jack Frost spews cold attack
Life asleep 
Hoar is forevermore

Do you mind
Do you mind
If I share a dialogue?
My chalice of truth and reality
Is far too full to contain the depths of my soul
A chalice of roads trod, rivers crossed, and mountains climbed
Bearing a brew too overpowering and juxtaposed
To consume in solitude

A Call Not Taken
The ringing of phone awakes,
Out of slumber and causes shakes.
To the hand that finds it in dark,
And the ear where it finds it’s mark.

Eerie silence from other end,
And then at once it all begins…
Terror screams across the line
From victim of...Read More

Yet at this very moment the cathedral was crumbling
down upon the cries of foresaken refugees, 
the monastery's walls wobbling from war's wreckage, 
and as the black bursts billowed into sun drenched brutality
with the bodies of abandoned country folk
crushed in the...Read More
