Birth To Infinity
Germ of essence. 
Human blob. 
Shattered eggshell to the chicklet hatched.
Interlocking  family of a  kingdom.
Beget or begone? Antigone! 
Pouch bearing mammal  with no issue for her milk a plenty.
Enlightened species on
a zodiac sign.
Propagating genus wild and free...Read More

The Pin Oak
(We’ve grown old together)
Written: by Miracle Man

Softly caressed, are outstretched arms,
in sunlight bathed, a huge Oak tree.
Proudly standing, displaying charms,
for fifty years this tree and me.

Proudly planted when both were sprouts,
and through the years I've shared its shade.

An Open Window
Smell the sweet aroma of roses,
red in colour bright and gay.
Looking out to the far side,
the young children play.

The tall oak tree leaves flutter,
underneath acorn fallen.
Brown nuggets with silly hats,
quickly pick them up before they are stolen.

Hear the birds talk...Read More

Acorn Pixie was well hidden at first
But then she jumped when something burst.
She shrieked a bit and jumped once too.
Something pixies never ought to do.

Hey! Was that a faerie? A fairy hunter did ask.
He was formidable, with a gun, holding...Read More

Who is knocking on my empty stump
on this cold and dreary night?
I glanced at my friend, but she was snoring away, 
her usual evening sight.

I went to the door with my loaded acorn, 
ready to shoot me some bear.
But believe...Read More

?As if a child should understand an  adult’s muddle,
putrid oil slick puddle,
the dreadful pain we foist on wide-eyed offspring.
Robotic elders crush with rigid slabs of Portland censure whatever spark remains in t iny rosebud coloured cheeks before their prime.

Premium Member ACORN IN THE SNOW
I saw it as I walked one day…an acorn in the snow
and I stopped for a moment to wonder…what makes this acorn grow?

What makes this little tiny seed…barely bigger than a pea…
what makes this little acorn transform into a tree?

Certainly...Read More

Oak woman and oak man stood together through crisis day by day.
For years they admired each other in a natural, normal way.

She admired his strong thick branches, and his...Read More

Named Majesty of the Woods; etiquette requires in my presence one must bow

Wheels of life dangle from delicate branches

Sway in the wind and embrace in quiet caress

	I used to be an acorn

		Now I am a tree

Seasons coloured in outside their softened contours 

Green yellow orange and red waiting for indigo crowns

	Roots' undergrowth...Read More

Before the ending, there is this other self -
it is a little ahead of me.
He does not look back,
only I look back, imagine a path
all the way to the middle 
of a spiral foretelling.
I imagine I am still a seed,

Someone help me please, 
I feel so lost,
The snow is deep, 
The streets are dark,
Unfriendly people 
Come at a cost,
I left my red scarf 
As a mark,
It’s gone,
But so sleepy, thought,
I’d have a nap,
Last I remember,
Is my yawn!

Another yellow leaf came 
spinning down
Shaken, detached and 
Wind blown
To lie by other leaves
And acorns
During the season of fall!

The Oak stood bare
Bereft of all leaves
No shame, no care
Just branches and crease.
40 seasons it has seen
New leaves and acorn
Where old ones...Read More

In the absence of complication,
trials and tribulations become distant memories.
Above sapphire skies delight sanguine eyes -
inspiring forthcoming musings of the mind.

among tulips and chinaberry,
creating comfort along a beckoning horizon
as footsteps are soft and freedom a...Read More

Streetlights flicker in daybreaks doubt.
Grayish clouds mope lazily.
Sunrise smirks at the early risers.
Dewdrops dangle on yellowed leaves.
A cat shakes his wet paws.
Robins wrangle chilled worms.
A squirrel maps his acorn field.
Frail winds stifle the hawk’s wings.
Late bloomers shiver in the sun’s...Read More

Foliage on the trees
Red fire adorn the leaves

Squirrel and chipmunk stuff their cheeks

A toasty, sweet and spicy fume
Warm aroma fill the room
