Premium Member 6 FEET AWAY
One thing this pandemic has been doing from the very start
is forcing us to look at life a little differently…as we stand 6 feet apart.

It’s allowing us to reevaluate as we adjust our day to day…
It’s reminding us what’s important…as...Read More

Premium Member Just a Little Cynical
Cyclical and cynical
 history I find is critical
 and is often on rewind biblical
 in both the past and present times elliptical.

Prayer Changes Things
Written: by Miracle Man

Have we exited a life that may have no return
and whatever follows we must learn to adjust?
We smell the smoke, beholding the bridges that burn,
and in our government continually trust.

People try convincing us they’ve the...Read More

Flackmoth on Heaven

Flackmoth once heard a preacher say
heaven is like no earthly way:
no sex, no drunks, no extortioners,
no thieves, no gluttons, no adulterers!

He contemplates with grave despair
and wonders if anyone’s up there?
With so radical a change a must,
does any mortal there adjust?

Premium Member The Invisible Violin

If we are to discover what is out there
we must board the Holy Ghost,
cleave the winds of time
into gods and tridents,
count the star clusters within us.

Under seeking skulls: those white domes,
antique tripods brace themselves,
their quaint brass fittings
helping us to adjust

Babies crying
Someone's calling
People dying
Someone's calling
Humanities denying
Someone's calling
Site of breath
Has left the chest
Spirit and soul has moved on
Vertical arise
Soars through the sky
In a twinkling of an eye
Someone ears itching
Someone's calling
Someone conscious is twitching
Sin Laden the man so bewitching
So appalling

To return to where it started

Premium Member Free Verse On Love
You have loved me, always,
as you did throughout our spring-
so lush and green-
when nothing was too hard for us
to keep our love
alive and new.

All through the summer of our life,
as children blessed
our married years,
and tending to them became first-
you did...Read More

Knock knock knock
Knock, knock, knock!
A lover at the door
The other adjust his clothes
The handle turns their hearts

An eye on the peephole
The handle breaks apart

A lover in a gaol

Premium Member Or Would We

Oh, Lord, I think we need a magic knob
that's somewhere on one arm discreetly placed.
When activated, it would sofly throb,
alerting us to nearby pain it traced.
At this time, we'd adjust our hidden disc,
permitting us to live another’s woe
with comprehension flowing,...Read More

Been knocked down
But never put out.
Been lied to, cursed at
Even talked about.
Had a few pick-me-ups and
A couple of dust-me-offs
Serpents trying to slime me
With materialistic pay offs.
Obstacles laid in my paths
Like bear traps in the woods,
By foes and those
Who only wished...Read More

Melody of the heart
With your inspirational presence into
My life
My heart will forever be greatful 
You quench every moments of regret
With your motivations
Filled with lovely ingredients
You are my queen 
Whose throne lies in my heart
Your beauty lay on a bed above perfection 
Gold hearted...Read More

Premium Member How Harmful Can She Be
They get out of cars and adjust their clothes.
Some wearing a yard or two of makeup.
Others in pajamas or jogging suits.
It is Saturday morning
The mall has just opened.
I sit in the parking lot watching.
Knowing what danger they would be in
If...Read More

Dwelling in darkness
I've known all my life,
I learned to survive
amid all of the strife.
Alone, I arrived in the air I would breathe.
Alone, I would choose in the web I would weave.

Drifting along the American stream
blessed to be born with the...Read More

To a Son
I think my job is really done,
and yet, what was the sense
in raising you, my bearded son?
So that you beat it hence?

The anguish, pain and rocky nights!
And now — a vacant nest?
I close the door, switch off the lights
and think:...Read More

What if
What if we stood in between 
The real world and heavenly dreams
Where we control nearly everything
A reality well worth conjuring

We remained young and safe
Living in love with the life we made
With none of the...Read More

Waiting for the Holy Spirit
Waiting for the Holy Spirit 

As we stand amongst the pews 

Waiting for the basket to go ‘round 

Hearing the hymns from the choir 

Smelling the incense that burns so sweetly 

His Holy Spirit is coming.

How can you tell my age
In my mind’s eye: 
I still hang up 
the rotary phone,
as I hear conversations
on the party line. 
My hands flip albums
on the turntable;
and adjust the TV
antennae. My hair
flies in the wind,
as I ride in the back
of a pick-up truck,
on an...Read More

Who's saving Who
I squeezed and held her very tight.
To try and stop her trembling fright.
I massaged her as it seemed to help.
And in return, she didn't yelp.

We gave her treatment for the fleas.
And a distemper shot with ease.
She seemed to truly trust...Read More
