The Trios
Lofty crafts of sensational creations, 
Oily traits dripping affections
Vulnerable hearts somersaulting
Evisaging allusive hyperbole. 

Damped dance, complex steps
Elating destruction with a breath
Acreage littered with confetti of gloom
Tainted trails, dainty doom
Hood hoisted, deep-six in hell. 

Track embroidered with bramble brier 
Innuendos of...Read More

Premium Member Living with Carpenter Bees

They are dug in under the screen door
where my foot swings, where concrete crumbles.

Fat and fuzzy the bees scurry as heavy as baby mice.
They share an apartment with a chipmunk,
and a long amber centipede
that sometimes emerges
to ripple-wave at something only...Read More

Replete with Colonial Army spirits
Two hundred forty two
(12.1 score) years ago
countless stripling soldiers
strapping farming homeboys
healthy agrarian lads
raised among generations

in summer re:
offspring original settlers heirs
family acreage encompassed
wide uninterrupted forested swaths
across sprawling vistas
sparsely populated enclaves,

now heavily industrialized
lovely bones occupying
unmarked never known graves
buried amidst avast 
cleft rapacious...Read More

Wasted Energy

Darkness descends like a ribbon unfurling,
As astronauts in space orbit the earth churning;
And observe the lit orb that is the world below,
Liken to a planet on fire in sulfurous yellow.
Impressive, but a waste of energy,
To see photons flow at...Read More

Night, North Woods Deer Camp
Darkness seeps through stately pines,
outside this home-made, tar-paper shack.
It’s two AM, and I cannot sleep again,
so I gaze out into the black.
I feel a relaxing sense of peace,
and while it may be no normal thing,
I’ve always found the embrace of...Read More

A phenomena misinformed is a mispronunciation of a garbled gargled juice. Only released once. Not twice. Nor three times. In fact the catchment period for enticing a cake is relative only to atmospheric pressure conditions. Obviously whirling! Cantankerous hound on...Read More

Premium Member The Fairy Ring Part One
Once at dawn upon a wandered mind when day had dwelled within a dream,
I stood afore a forest's edge and gazed upon its refulgent grassy gleams. 

Home alone on a house's deck perched before the acreage of the backyard's lawn,

	A sunny fall day.  The landscape rises and falls in a cacophony of passing hills, trees, and road work.   Hanging in the air, the smell curls the nostrils to protect from the odor of skunk.

Premium Member Midsummer Night's Eve Stroll
An evening stroll, on Midsummer Night's Eve ,
under the silver light of the horizon moon.

Life that burst among a small acreage,
of old-growth forests, flourished.

A delightful flurry of fireflies, drifting,
twinkle among the foliage, an amazing sight.

Echoing sounds moan through bough
and leaves...Read More

When will the rain come 'Africa
Written by Mpho Leteng(Botswana), Donald Kuutsi(Zimbabwe) and Blessing Masora(Zimbabwe)

The white sees pour holy rites from the mountain bald,
Begging gods for release of the fall heavens enthralled,
But for the long we waited; nerves taut as the strings of a recurvebow!

Once upon a time II
-Once upon a time II-

In a separate realm
Where cloud rains
Where dreams 
Are dream
And due
To come true,
Where lives and lots
Are valued
Where chattels 
And acreage
Are own
Love, fuddle,
Pamper, behold
And hold.

The most 
Incredible deal
In this hectare
At this epoch
Is the way
Of their 
Ancestors are
Alive and...Read More

Coral and Lime Stones
Coral and lime stones
You can take the country out of me
However, not the trace of acid lime out of my blood
Growing up on the island has its advantages
Everybody was related to each other: and everyone knew 
each other real names.

the widow and the apple orchard
after enduring years of neglect
when she needed to know she was not alone &
abuse, when all she wanted was to be held with

though her friends had told her to leave him,
she stayed---
though her family had disowned her because of him,

Revived to pop out as an empty nester 
To accompany a newfangled life

I could afford to use the money
On both rainy days and sunny

I would buy a brand new car
Then donate mine to a crash stunt star

I'd rather buy my friends a new car
