As a result Eve had lost the Rose, petals fallin' to the ground

Looking For Treasure
Looking For Treasure
By R.e. Taylor

I want to go out
Spend the day treasure hunting
No, I don’t need no map
Don’t need no “X” marks the spot
I will find it all on my own
I want to search the backstreets
The alleyways where no one...Read More

I was one of ten most wanted women

lovely Line is a lady who
lingers in deep thought-
her style shines with wit;
a simile or two with a touch of personification in

Premium Member An infinite finale in gray


Clouded skies somberly cascade
upon motionless vistas,
floating unrehearsed melancholy hues
where muted feelings roam
on an autumn morning echoing
a weary winter dream

I sit beneath a weeping willow’s
unhurried leaves fluttering
like silent wind chimes,
quietly pacing unheard melodies,
as dandelions seek the sun now
merely an absent reflection...Read More

if our story ends
as all stories must
i’d want to
each chapter
as i sift through
the pages of
memories past

see fate's
written word
scribe how
we first met
sunnier times
treasured within
hear in my head
out from pages
come to life
the echoes
of laughter

in hindsight
certain chapters
rested against
their bent corners
not time yet
for dreams

An old black and white movie

Well, it all started when
Jim Beam bet Jack Daniels
that Captain Morgan

and get himself
some Wild Turkey.
Old Fashioned, like Old Granddad,

But mostly in the form of a woman named Wild Irish...Read More

We once had a miniature poodle
Quincy Adams his registered name
We were quite proud of our small pet
As part of the family he became

While walking Quincy one spring day
We met a man who worked with us
Obviously taken with Quincy
He couldn't raise...Read More

McCarthy's Saloon
This is the place the ’punchers come
when it is time to drink their pay,
ride in from the hilly rangelands
to forget cattle for a day.

beef and spuds for this roving horde,
her husband Mick will greet them...Read More

I knew this day was special

And saw the pastel ribbons

A gift was out there waiting

Just waiting to be opened

Sun is held hostage by a blanket of clouds,
reflecting an agitated addict's ashtray.
Birds depart from soaked naked branches,
as eyes seek refuge from the ugliness of change.

I peer beneath this umbrage pitched upon the ground
anticipating a palette of summer to simper...Read More

i remember you;
giddy little child
with the mona-lisa smile
and sun-burnt hair
as it brushed against
your ivory skin
you were so innocent then

i never saw the sadness
that lingered in your eyes
the depths of green
seemed to pull others in
that hypnotizing glare
hid your pain well
