Premium Member Cycles of life
Times such as these test body soul and mind
So should our thoughts be pain and dark confined
Or loosed to concentrate on brighter things
Like furry puppies, flowers and girls on swings

In this bright morning sun as I roved out
Past village houses...Read More

Being Grandpa
Being a Grandpa,
  It amazes me a little bit how common being a grandparent is and how easy it is to become one.  You have children, they have children and there you are a shiny new grandparent. ...Read More

Premium Member Vintage Pornography

Women dipped in inks.
Images from a cogged box.

A camera reveals
hips and ankles, ribbons
decorously draped
over a contrived modesty.

An artist has added a color tint,
their cheeks are rosy,
their lips red,
a patchwork of painted glow.

Pauses in an upper room.
A warm lamp licks,

feathers and...Read More

At the reception when asked why 
they never had children the couple explained:
We were both so shy and private – still are –
we feared that any advancement on either 
of our part would be interpreted by 
the other as out...Read More

Tripped Up

Things take us from what is important, easily. 
Distractions of life, responsibilities we deem high on the list. 
Missed promises, forgotten details, getting older now. 
Things have less importance, and time has new meaning. 

Say hello to those that...Read More

He adjusted the angle arched forth in awe and anticipated attunement 

Ached with attrition and attributed an array afore attaching amends

Premium Member Lost September

I left the cabin on October 1
on legs of rubber. Squinting at the sun	
until my eyes adjusted, then I saw 
sunflower blooms and squirrels playing chase.
Songbirds regaled me as I walked the path
behind the cabin, my September home.

While resting on...Read More

The Ride
“If you look left you will see everything you have done.”
Good and bad all displayed into one.
Recollecting your memories because you have the time in the world.
“Now if you look right you will see what you could have become.”
Wondering why...Read More

Premium Member Hard Rows Well Hoed

It was a Wednesday;
a day woven 
into prison blankets and dish towels.
A day to assess hours unnoticed.
A time of trivial hungers.

The hard heft of earlier times: -
not fitting into anything,
teenage fluff and huff. Heartbreak,
rearing and loss. The fallow traipse of...Read More

Restore Life 2
Species did die ere man,
In the round of selection,
So many and so long.
What difference now
Should they go?

In trackless time
Lent to adaptation,
A peice succeeds
To its proper slot,
Only displacing
By adjusted gene.
Extinction wrought by man
Plays at no game,
But sweeps all the peices
To the...Read More

Warm thee heart

The beginning of the end is...Read More

True Value
You'll always want 
What you don't got
Most the things you get
Aint as important
As you thought
Once you get them
Is when they start
Losing value
Got you on the hunt
For something brand new
& it doesnt stop
You could have a fortune
And still be miserable
It's impossible...Read More

He could not scratch his head
He wore a colourful headdress
Starched stiff
He adjusted it

The itch persisted 
He could not remove his turban

The desert sand was unbearably hot
There was no shade for relief 
He had...Read More

To escort into heaven another godly man.

To welcome yet another to this bright golden shore.

The bespectacled old man
Adjusted his spectacles and his hearing aids,
Positioned his walking stick
Inched forward as the caravan stuttered
Birthed at Aqua Caliente Station

Unable to make out
The train number and destination,
He turned to me
And asked in a quavering voice:

LOCATION: Mazamaza, Lagos, Nigeria:
My neighbor kofi, 
The computer scientist
At 34,
He crisscrossed, jetcrosed, redcrossed,
And hobnobbed around the globe:
Kathmandu, Acapulco and the Galapagos 

He dined and wined
Like there was no tomorrow 
He dined and wined 
With Kings and queens;
Cuban cigars,...Read More
