New Poems

On the canvas of my life the surface 
Started out blank the moment 
I was born and came into existence
Just as everyone does then, overtime
As I went through different experiences
The acrylic and watercolors of emotions
Thoughts and beliefs began to slowly

The ‘classics’ section is not small.
Ranks of tightly printed editions
squeeze a concertina of time.
The glossy acrylic smell of new books
is cordite to my nose,
I dodge a graphic array of explosive masterpieces.

Movies have usurped many of these books

Quotidian Fever
I dream of magic lines but they  elude me.
Well, sometimes.
Chapbook on acrylic tube  palette, janus-faced cave in at the crack of dawn,
crescent moonlight awnings turn to  circus of the  soul, 
images that colour dullard pages ...Read More

Weaving Native Life
Trees' jagged branches
catch the sun sinking a moist
hummus color spread

and coating the edges.
Pointed, thrust into seeping
ink of violet cotton,

is the mountain, chalk
colored. It is a beautiful ogre,
deceptively majestic.

It eyes a village
weaving native life.
Spines of which are wild

burnt-colored trees, 
the bones...Read More

Premium Member Stuck In A Christmas Snow Globe
The lines of the glass blur,
the scenery blends 
except for that
semi-translucent  curvature.
What lay between me
and my living room,
clear yet an acrylic
boundary to freedom;
as I survey
my post nap situation,
with mortal eyes
I realize...
I’m stuck in a snow globe.
My snow globe,
with the...Read More

Over the ocean in a far away land,
My lover sits with a steady hand.
Splashing lashings of acrylic paint;
Upon a surface with no restraint.
He smudges, swirls and smears it in,
Traditional art with a brand new spin.
To share his culture to the...Read More

Share my life,
Take me for what I am,

All my colours for you.

Of course there's a few shades of black and purple, but all of them complement...Read More

I have this pebble in my hand
I always loved those stone
and wish I'd collect millions of them
Keep them in my house
and bring them to life with beauty, acrylic and pattern

The only pain was to complain.

Just as long as my love was there.

The nightingale was singing to the moonlight. 
The moonlight was showing off all of its bright.
He was singing as though he knows the right path,
Showing everybody how to do it right.
Suddenly, heard a sound like his, but so sad.
So much...Read More

Twice the night had fallen upon a sleepless slumber,
Yet again awoken by winter when the third was three in number.

Conniving with that which shadows show to those whose senses...Read More

Premium Member Painter Me
Green on my fingers, 
pink and purple too.
Acrylic paint lingers,
Ah! There is red and blue.

When I paint I’m such a mess,
Ruin my clothes every time.
Outer beauty must confess.
Truly hidden under grime.

Magical canvas,
Interrupts in ups and downs.
Makes me so happy,
In yellows,...Read More

None of them comes along with any warning.
To go right or to go left which one is right?
Living in darkness or hoping to see light.

Few I made that...Read More

I will always be a gypsy- woman filled with curiosity
Running wild beneath a moonglow grasping fireflies;
Then to quickly scribble impressions on  leaves,  my poetry:
How zest ignites visual arts — charcoal, acrylic, oil—streaks upon
Drawing boards until night’s rhythm forgets...Read More

I have garden loving hands.
Painters hands.
A poet's hands.
Ink-stained, acrylic paint splotches,
dirt under my broken and split 

Here I sit, observing today's
experiences on my hands.
They tell the story as well
as anything else could.
I have smudges of ink,
and the entire side next

Splashed In Infatuation
She covered me in paint.
Filling me with her outlook.
Standing there drenched we both laughed.
Her hands covered in acrylic.
She fed me apple sauce browns and pepperoni reds.
Banana cream tans as well as blueberry blues.
Her thoughts covered me in taste.
Hands warm to...Read More

Outside the Lines

A wince doth lurk wearing which wicked gaze,
Of conniving cast shadows ‘tween my windowpanes.

Gazing through the window’s diaphanous gelid glass, 
I see a flushing fluorescent misty haze of frothy brass.

It floats aloft the frost of the frigid Winter floor, 
Stirring...Read More
