Premium Member Appalachian Dawn

I have a passion to hold a lamp aloft,
to capture one acre of starshine
before the sun writes a new dawn.

Rusting Chevys bloom in the half-light.
Nightjars depart on shadow wings.
Shimmering’s walk toward my window
on silver slippers.

A native mildness calls me out

Premium Member Somewhere

Somewhere in these busy woods
a woodpecker tattoos bark,
I heard its pecking
as I drifted into this glade
here in the middle of somewhere.

Somewhere songbirds and squirrels
hustle like hoodlums on their arboreal streets,
but here silence is a rope-less tent
pitched under a million feet...Read More

What is a square, a shape, container quadraphonics, a traditional rollerskate

Premium Member The Starlings Descend

They flow out of a pocket of sky,
a door in the air no one saw
until dark wings shower
over our heads.

Their plumage has a metallic sheen,
as if they were made in parts,
in some elvish workshop, their wings
hammered on last.
Wings that talk...Read More

Premium Member I Don't Miss London

I don’t miss the city,
the metropolis I once knew was built
on the edge of a never-never land.

I miss just this: a green half-acre, 
a cultivated fenced enclosure 
with a round bandstand; a Victorian structure
surrounded by a bed of carnations –...Read More

Transmogrification into hideous golem like beast...

Payment For Shade
Autumn 2019
By: Miracle Man

My payment for the shade,
during deep summer’s swelter.
Is that when Autumn comes,
leaves fall helter-skelter.

Autumn always brings with it,
A few unwanted chores.
Leaf eradication becomes,
my temporary job outdoors.

Our two acre yard is a hodgepodge, 
 of crepe...Read More

All my years I have been a sensitive soul,
But life throws curved balls- things take their toll,
However, if I’m handled with a touch of magic 
And kindness,
I look upon this approach as being priceless!

Three-Fifth Soul
It’s a terrible thing to be treated
as less than human ... all should abhor
Considered only as beast of burden — 
that’s the lying end of it, nothing more

Iron yoke was our neck collar,
leash was a throat chain
Valued sixty cents on...Read More

Premium Member These All Were You
I had many words,
hadn't need ink
though I wrote into inside paper

without body
some peacock feathers
greeted me
to some night west stars,
a star eyed me

on a planet
I panted thousands acre trees
there birds built their nests
I was loving all birds crossing seven seas

I was...Read More

Here in my rented acre of Ohio;
I feel the generations,
the hungarians, the irish and germans,
the dutch, the blacks, the shawnee.
We are not a melting pot,
we are birds and critters brought here
by wild, wild winds. 
I am a grackle

Creation Begun and Beyond
God created, out of emptiness, the firmaments and the earth,
Matter strewn into cosmic void; galaxies of glorious yield, 
Heaven’s Architect and Builder; Designer with purpose and worth,
By master plan hurled the world; site His love to be revealed.

Premium Member As We Know It

An ornamental doe and fawn,
suddenly move. Tails wave, noses nuzzle –
I have mistaken an actuality,
and now am thrown out of my skin.
I’m a millipede of fractal awareness.
I sniff the body-odor of the planet
take inward, then sift out
Australia and Africa.
I pause...Read More

The Sun had risen to greet the day

Where below the warmth it brought to bare

Bison Hunt, Part I

obliviously preoccupied

Altzhiemers: Thief of Light

My good old friend is a prisoner
tortured by his own sharpest tool
The shadows of Altzhiemers
Throwing a cloak of darkness
Over his bright green eyes
Eyes that I regularly looked to
For wisdom and sage advice
Forty-five years of our adventures
And brotherhood...Read More

The Shape-Shifting Cowboy, Part I
Jenna lived in rural Wyoming lands,
where grass rolled over small ridges and buttes,
a small town way out in the cow country,
where the ranchers still throw lassos in loops.

She was driving out to see her boyfriend,
who owned a ten thousand-acre large...Read More

Something's coming, you can smell it in the city air,
a trace of salt-sting, wave-licked
from where Neptune's head breaks above the
waves through slopes, foothills, mountains of white
water, swirling braids of kelp, as green Sea horses stamp
the laughing waves. Then calm.
Ocean, kissed...Read More
