New Poems

Looking at your life, with the feeling of excitement and being overwhelmed.
You’re reminding yourself that you’re as tough as an elm.
Your stomach is growing and your feet are swollen.
It’s as if you’re not sure about this and feel your life...Read More

Additions and retention,
Achievements and parties,
Blessed and cherished,
Benevolence and empathy,
Chortles and roars,
Diligence and success,
Family and friends,
Fortune and endeavour,
Hale and hearty,
Magnificence and power,
Memories and rerun.

Hey all! Have another year, 
Ecstatic and savoured!

Premium Member Just Last Year
Last year, I was putting up new curtains
Adding new rugs to my trailer
Taking chances on bright and bold colors
All the glories of new beginnings

Last year, I was adding to my Tupperware
New bowls, happy and vivid
To keep all the good feasts...Read More

Premium Member A Thousand Words Later

A thousand words later,
we were still talking.

I know I’m being reflexive,
this humor is a transparent way 
to paint clowns on speech bubbles.
Ripostes that ricochet
off any real wit. 

"I must be going."

One thousand and forty.

Later ---

witty repartee are invented,

shattered legions on the beach of my heart

Your memories bring tears,
Your memories start to slowly disappear,
You have so many new family additions,
Its hard to keep up with your tradition,
The nicknames you would give,
Stick with us as long as we live,
I only feel numb,

The Artist's City
…of streets walked on still,
taken in by looks and glances that create
more than a memory - but a 
gallery revered for years to come.

Of the skyline rising and falling like a
heart monitor, painted passionately red and
tinted orange from crushed autumn...Read More

Premium Member Ineffable
Incredibly mouth watering and beyond the mind’s procession
Neither time nor logic stands in the way as opposition

The Formula
The world rotates and life moves forward,
I see a straight path but im spinning!
The confusion between me and them:
How we separated- the split and turns 
The additions and multiplications;
Divisions equal to unknown formulas,
Those numbers ranging 
from millions to trillions;
Zeros so...Read More

The New Seven Deadly Sins
I think it's time to do an update
Of The Seven Deadly Sins
Most people do not know them all
Sit down and let's begin
I'm not really religious
But, I think they're a bit stale
So, I think I'll spruce them up a bit

Premium Member Confluent Co-OperaTions
I grow increasingly challenged
to discern where my innocent thoughts
hopes and fears
challenges and victories begin
where others more wisely end.

I feel wrong to publish thoughts
under just my name
built on shoulders,
plodding feet,
sleight of hands
and great transitional feats
reminding me through Others.

Yet to credit Them

The Queen of Inertia
I’m the Queen of Inertia
So please kiss my ring,
Although it’s not technically
Royal-type bling.

Or else you might curtsey
To show me respect
For no one’s surpassed me,
The last time I checked.

The art on my walls hasn’t
Changed now for years;
The furniture’s old,
Which is how...Read More

Hawkings Paradox
“Another game?”
“Yes, I think so but let’s change
the rules. What if we create some
holes in the game, three or four
perhaps with parallel endings?”
“Yes, I think that would be fun.”

What if you step over a crack in...Read More

Best Friends
Life is so hard
Dark and complex
Days run together
Onto the next

And be with my friend
Through thick and through thin

The love I hold for her
Grows every single...Read More

The Adventures of Enea, Part 5 of 13
Enea Gets the Red Hat

Finally, he's getting somewhere. 
Fifty years of age and almost crippled, 
prematurely aged, but at last, 
sweet recognition rains down 
on the poet. Kneeling before Calixtus, 
he accepts the Cardinal's hat. 
Fancy that. 

With every triumph,...Read More

No one's Perfect
No one’s perfect
No one’s is angelic
Beautiful in body
but filthy in heart

Fluent in speech yet,
stammerer in action
Metallic in body but
a desert in morals

Shining star in sport
yet a tail in reason
Close to Almighty
but afar from man

Life’s like a computer game
Full of additions...Read More
