Premium Member Finding Joy and Cheer
What brings me joy is getting together with friends,
oh, not in person, that's a no-no at this time but on line;
we dance Latin and I love to find their smiles shine,
love to organize my art, paints, pencils and pens.

This Too Shall Pass
By: Miracle Man

Life today has become all about adjusting,
It becomes easier when in God we’re trusting.
Our faith tells us God will see us through,
so we do each day, what life forces us to do.

Black like ink, slimy gooey terror 
Marking trails across the floor.
A dash across the concrete leaving panic in your wake.
My minds like putty, adjusting to your story youve all but written into reality. 
Pills slide down my throat
To force you...Read More

Black and white television set
First one in the neighborhood
Rabbit ears adjusting the reception
Rotated dial to change channels
Kiddie cartoons and Roy Rogers
Weekly ritual of Saturday mornings
Much talked about Sunday nights
Ed Sullivan his prestigious guests
Staying up past our bedtime
Honeymooners and I Love...Read More

Morning Perambulations of a Carp
At the rim of the reflecting pool
the water bristles with morning light.
Slowly it emerges from a depth

of primordial murky browns 
and greens, as though it and its watery
world had just been created. 

Its reddish-gold scales and ghostly 
tipped white tail...Read More

What? I'm not eating your roses.
I am adjusting my whiskers.
I don't care for salads anyway.
Just watching this pathetic
Excuse for a plant self-destruct.

Out of my mind, back in a few minutes
Adjusting my parameters, can't find 'em in a thicket
Happens now and then
Probably out feeding the hens
My name is Gertrude and my stockings are fishnet

I don't question
my presence in a Jacuzzi
with a girlfriend of a friend,
or why my ex-wife's sister
is now a soapy fingered hand-maiden.

All day I keep adjusting my mask
while secretly watching that hot tub dream 
as it plays-on
on the tip of every...Read More

Premium Member SNOW BLIND-
By the grave I saw blacken snow flakes
Lightning flashed as I witness
Drawn down from blacken purple skies
Burst of brilliants, winter blast snow blind
Upon a midnight electrics static,
you came gently clanging
Deep into that darkness changing, snow blind
To warn me about the...Read More

Precious Cargo
I felt nerves standing in my way, both nervous and excited at the same time 

I started opening my mouth confirming a permanent visitor our home would welcome 
A friend who would be carried as a precious cargo

My baby hen
I believe she knows
Her ginger embrace
Intentional words
She’s my saving grace

The way she lingers
Then ups her stride 
Adjusting her speed
To warm my side

Her language of love
It’s just what I crave
But how would she know
Things I never would say 

Still, it’s evident
She’s...Read More

All the karmic forces came in and, settled themselves down upon the fence
As the two parties arrived; with their arms full, of their grounds of defence

The learned judge cleaned his glasses and yawns; he’s seen...Read More

All my years I have been a sensitive soul,
But life throws curved balls- things take their toll,
However, if I’m handled with a touch of magic 
And kindness,
I look upon this approach as being priceless!

Looking Hinder
Written: by Miracle Man

 In nineteen sixty-eight,
I got an attitude adjusting.
Because at that time,
In God, I wasn’t trusting.

I traveled down roads,
clearly marked dead end.
With chug holes and speed bumps,
I seemed to always contend.

During these uncertain times,
when I wouldn’t...Read More

Our planks were creaking, I only heard the music
My body is a liquid
that keeps your glass half full

I'm merely there to fill the gap
between episodes of a screenplayed life

the need for symmetry
is overdrawing a story
were us could be presumptive

like you said
those expectations were my mirroring
so your repulsion stepped...Read More

Miles Away From Home

Here in my rented acre of Ohio;
I feel the generations,
the hungarians, the irish and germans,
the dutch, the blacks, the shawnee.
We are not a melting pot,
we are birds and critters brought here
by wild, wild winds. 
I am a grackle

Premium Member Whisper of Autumn
Burnt orange, mahogany and deep yellow
Merging with emerald greens of pine trees
Coloring the ridges, mountains so mellow
They whisper inspiration into the breeze

They’re called the blue ridge mountains
During autumn, they go through transformation
Changing from their typical colors astounding
Into a vivid array...Read More

If I weren't afraid I'd

Who was she?  They wondered

The see through baby dragon
Padded talons touching tepid earth
His blinking gaze
adjusting to the virgin haze
Through alabaster eyelids
the unseen sun
and whispered wind
touch newborn scale
Unfurled wings
seeking their first beat
Unsteady legs atop
timid feet
Horned tail sweeps
Grass and dust aside
The see through baby dragon
and the heart 
he could not...Read More

Second Chance
Angela stumbled 
into the darkened lecture hall 20 minutes late 
and slid into a seat in the back. 
Down below the professor was talking near a lighted screen. 
In the auditorium students were taking notes, emailing, or texting.

And when I turn behind
And when I turn behind
I am always down by what I find.
Some important papers of my father,
Which now he don't even remember,
Some photos preserved by my mother,
Losing the one makes her bother.
White pages that have turned yellow with time,
Mother adjusting...Read More
