Premium Member Too Many Suspects
Libby Lou was a professional intermeddler
She had her hands in all most all of the towns people’s pots
Adding carrots and potatoes to some, digging tomatoes out of others
Criticizing the amount of thyme and pepper, 
Constantly tasting, moving between their houses,...Read More

Orchestra of ocean crashes
Seagulls soar high
Faint sounds of passerbys 

All of that
Comes nothing 
Than her eyes 
Twinkling at his

Chatting away
In their own world
They have each other other
Side by side

Little tease
In comfortable warmth
Laughter in the air

Secretly knowing
Being more than friends

Every Night at 7
The city’s super quiet now
As life remains on hold,
A siren’s wail from time to time 
Erupting uncontrolled.

Until, each night at 7
When the clapping sounds begin,
Accompanied by cow bells,
Only adding to the din.

With whoops and shouts and singing,
Either live or Spotified,

Premium Member On Art As I See It
Blessed are those rulers that kindly share their greatness
Blessed are the rich that gladly share their wealth
Blessed are the truly wise that share their understandings.

Though in the real world, artists find, very rare.

Twice blessed are the rare places ruled
That provide...Read More

Premium Member PUT TO THE TEST

Planet earth has been put to the test,
Everyone we hope is doing their best,
Unavoidable to sometimes feel depressed,
No family member for tea or a friend or guest.

My hands I am sure have become bleached,
Police and army around,...Read More

(The politician Or The Snake)

I’ve heard it said lately and then repeated,
COVID-19 gave political snakes hope.
Of adding their wants to a list first tweeted,
whining as if hung with a new cotton rope.

With a gift for buying and selling and so

Whilst proud to call him, my friend and a mate
He looks like a traveler...Read More

Sixth Sense
You are far from perfect and I am sure you are aware of this
A subject you often neglect but a point you can’t miss
Your shortcomings are as clear to you as  to everyone around
But I only have one fear...Read More

Premium Member A Cynical View
A Cynical View
By Tom

 drapes the world like an evil mantle,
exposing the weakness of humanity.
Many view this as an opportunity to gouge others.
People horde things, depriving others access,-to make a buck.
When choice disappears, stores increase prices,
not because they need to,...Read More

A Piece of Pi
Have a piece of pie today – 
Try apple, plum or cherry
Or key lime, lemon, Boston cream
Or one I love – mixed berry.

The choices aren’t infinite
Like digits never ending
In Pi, which though explained to me
I’m just not comprehending.

It starts with...Read More

You Know Where

Well you’re rusty
From not moving
Your body getting hungry
fuel it up on a Sunday

You’re getting busy
Getting down to nothing
Did you miss me last night
Or more in the morning

I’m seizing up, yeah
From doing nothing 
Other than reefing on

She keeps me...Read More

Premium Member I Danced a New Truth
I twirled the blind side of my imagination
She landed in a bow but did not bow
visualizing my muse’s scoff 
but it never came

Adding metamorphic truths
to my delicate repertoire
my cosmic soul winked at me
causing thunderous applause 

misunderstanding I danced my new...Read More

Preface: There is entirely too much water being consumed.  People should be satisfied with thirst and being dry.  They should think about desert sand, romancing dunes and bleached bones in repose.

Leaving faucets on,...Read More

Losing Pace
The mirror’s the scariest place
For gazing at my aging face.
I realize that I’m
In the race against time
Fairly certain to lose in disgrace.

Clothes and make-up can help to erase
Certain wrinkles so I can embrace
How I look for a while
And by adding...Read More

Inside The Matters Of Its Namesake
It could never contain these things inside, 
they amass so high –mountains of them

Whispers from the many who have ventured in,
now silent echoes heard till its rhythm stops

Weakness pays a visit now and then to interrupt
the day to day pulse,...Read More

spring prances into sight with bird trill tune

"Dead Crush"

Oh uplift me woman
if we were to have a 
conversation would 
bees fly out of your mouth
or just mewling, simpering 
watered-down honey
not so pristine, just soft
and somewhat 
ingratiatingly tainted
you ply uplifting
romantic notions
like an air raid 
shelter bombing 
a numb...Read More

Premium Member The Day I Danced in Puerto Rico
Dancing in time, bringing in the heartfelt holiday 
Wafts of women in full traditional costume of Puerto Rico
Gyrating in the streets, teasing the crowd with their prowess
From old to young, they make their point in colorful garb.

Outdoor Wonders
Nature makes me blossom,
from the flower that blooms in my backyard,
to the tall trees that shimmer with green.

When I was five I remember exploring the outdoors, 
taking my red sketchbook everywhere.
Lines flying through the page,

a growling beast
she described her work as creating creatures
using her efforts to summon the greatest fear
of people
she wanted her audience to believe her
and she wrote with an effort to
envision the deepest and darkest
feeling of fear and loneliness

so that...Read More
