Premium Member FINDING PEACE
When our world seems so chaotic…filled with man’s inhumanity to man
We search for peace and happiness…anywhere we can

On my walk this morning as I was wondering what fortunes today would bring
somewhere in the darkness a bird began to sing

I wasn’t...Read More

A Whimsical Trope 

Life is a circus
Of acrobats and clowns
Everywhere a scammer
Ready to take advantage.

Humpty Dumpty was clumsy
Rather dull and not very bright
Who never knew right-side up
Or downside wrong 
And so became a criminal.

Bring the cannon
And bring the handcuffs
Today we...Read More

Cat Independence
Cats are amazing critters!
Of course, all cat lovers
are well aware of this;
so, it is not to you
whom I speak. But to
those less furry among-st
us—to those less inclined
to seek a warm lap and
shamelessly purr to the
heat and is to

I See God
I see the colors of God
in the blue of sky, in
the glorious sunsets--
His passion on brilliant
display—I see His gold
in the swaying wheat
and in the blossoming 
glens, ripe with wings and
musical droning...

I see His constantly
changing shapes, my eyes a
pallet and canvas...Read More

Premium Member Circus
The circus is coming to town,
There are posters everywhere,
Showing acrobats and a clown,
Who is tall, with bright yellow hair.

The people have had to prepare,
The circus is coming to town,
Excitement is felt in the air,
The children cannot settle down.

With new energy...Read More

Spider-ific sandwiches whizzing through Halloween eve
Gathered by the most talented Magiks

It's hard to concentrate
when your thoughts 
are flipping like acrobats,
all taunting of the past
but some are worried of the future,
and then it all falls far away.

Now I got new problems now
worrying about suicide,
and how I was traumatized.

Stand still, eventide ...
I am a capricious cad, among wraiths,
Waltzing with a mop in a Marrakesh courtyard -
Catching stars as they drip with waxy and wild wonder,

Into the braids of my maudlin noose, tightening.
Jangling, dangling ... rose gold anklets shimmer...Read More

Come kids one and all,
The show will begin,
Watch the many clowns
Acrobats sky high
Cowboys and horses,

Flying daggers,
Lions, tigers,

Spinning dishes,

Dancing dogs,
Twirling bears,

Premium Member Fluffy Tailed Acrobats
Fluffy tailed performers
Chitter chatter among themselves
No one listening, everyone slathering
Juicy gossip 

Taking daring fifteen foot leaps and dives
From magnificent heights, barely landing on
Tiny branches.

Flinging themselves with wild abandon
And oodles of faith into the air, flipping and
Swirling. Contortionists.

Sliding up trunks the...Read More

We were born to offer
each other our own plates 
of suffering wounds.
No poultice will do.

Crying is out. Marriage also out-
each with our own insecurities and stubbornness -
two mules going down the same narrow path.

Money weighs heavily like bricks

A Day at the Circus
Elephants and lions,
Even seals have all been banned,
Though dogs and horses focused on
Their trainer’s crisp command.

Clowns, now lacking make-up,
Kept the audience amused
And jumpers on the trampoline
Were crazily enthused.

Trapeze artists soared above
And acrobats displayed
Such strength and balance it appeared
Of other stuff...Read More

Premium Member Squirrels, Three

Playing on the forest floor
I saw squirrels, three.
They scampered amongst the fallen leaves,
Then scurried up a tree.

I watched them in their antics
As they leapt from bough to bough,
Like acrobats on the high trapeze
Performing for a crowd.

Their joie de vivre apparent

She grasped the dinosaur thoughts,
holding on like a junkyard dog, 
til the light came, 
in a pre dawn dream,
through an archangel,
who walked up the rigorous and sparsely landscaped path
at a crossroads,
where the churning and ancient mental acrobats could not climb,

The Circus Has Left Town
What struck you first 
was the smell of caged animals
rank with boredom and rage.

Lions with matted fur pacing restlessly
dreaming of antelopes on the hot savanna plain

Elephants ponderously swinging their trunks, 
snuffling up stray peanuts thrown
by bored, sticky children.

The teams of acrobats in the...Read More
