Premium Member Oliver, a Boy
When I was young my mother's hand
Led me through a joyful land
Where neither war nor hate exist
Nor something more I must resist 

Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or greater light

Ladies and gents, girls and guys,
This poem is a clever disguise.

Premium Member Father thinks he knows best
Too quiet, my son
  I worry about you
Thou contemplate overmuch
  Get out there and do

Too noisy, my daughter
  Unbecoming of you
You're a young lady already
  Not a foul-mouthed shrew

Too passive, my wife
  For this century

I will miss you,
If you ever go away.
Whenever you say adieu,
I will want you to stay.

If you ever go away,
It is then that I will weep.
I will want you to stay.
Because my love is deep

It is then that I will...Read More

When God created teachers,
He gave us special friends.

You aren’t our mother,
But your support has been just as strong.

When we came to you with silly notes,
You cuddled and praised, even upon awful tommyrot.

When we were into some problem and failed to...Read More

Reflections on a Wall

From the valley floor
A stone arises,
Straight walls of polished blackness,
In between rolling, grassy knolls
Hidden in their cleft –
Arms open wide,
Welcoming pilgrims
Who in pilgrimage approach
It’s darkened face, 
Burdened by their tears
Written on a page, 
Wounded hearts, reopened,
In time...Read More

Finding Someone Who Cares
As the days go by the emptiness inside grows
fighting invisible demons back into the shadows
I scream for help, shedding tears of sorrow 
hoping I might overcome my burdens tomorrow
fearing as if nobody else really does care
all that's left to do...Read More

Soul O’ my lady blue;
I such in love wit you;
May I be your only bleu?
As the winter blows it brews;
As the sparrow flies, it flew;
Amidst the daily coup,
It coos…
I’m so in love wit you;
That I don’t know just what to...Read More

Me my true love did decry

She on whom I did rely

Now I see her walk on by

A bitter adieu—
Bid her adieu

Another day of mystery
Has now come to its end
How will we field the loss
Of our hero and our friend

Life is very fragile
It comes with its ups and downs
Enjoy each moment you are given
Even when it makes you frown

Yesterday I Dreamed Of You
My love, yesterday morn I awoke,       
To whispers lingering that you spoke,
In a relaxed and happy dream,
Your soft voice and eyes agleam.

At a party therein we’d met by chance,
Once joined, neither spared another a...Read More

At night our souls are free to roam
Rendezvous sans inhibition
Without confines fly miles from home
On divine clandestine mission

Do whatever souls delight in
Dance under galactic starlight
Serenaded by angel kin
Adieu we’ll meet again tonight

Blinding dazed commuters heading west
Their cars in single file attempt to scatter

While towers scraping as high as they can reach
Just crave to punch their...Read More

When effulgent sun scattered  his splendors in the firmament
And charming flowers shed their pure sweet bewitching fragrance
Then I whispered an adoring adieu to my loneliness
And cherished the blossoming muses of soup in ecstasy.

Sparkling Light
N-ew dawn has broken, 
A-fter the dusk says adieu; 
N-ight shadows disappear, 
C-old chill departs from

V-iew of Monday morning

E-vade my acrostic wish.

And leaves me frail alone and blue 
In my ear echoes sound of drums

In stormy skies where no birds flew

My Morning Rant
By Miracle Man

Seems weekly I awake to a new paradigm,
we’re legalizing “weed” so it’s no longer a crime.
Radical change came so quickly, I’m left agast,
and morality, it seems, is lost somewhere in the past.
But its a gateway drug...Read More

Downsize to widen your view,
but keep your barbeque.
For everything say "thank you."

Never again, will you pull a wool...
over my eyes. I'm nobody's fool.

Never again, will you string me along.
I refuse to dance to the tune of your song.

Never again, will I believe your lies.
I see them clearly written in your eyes.

The UK seeks to leave the EU.
It's no longer enjoying the view
of its friends 'cross the water
'cause it thinks it's much hotter
