My Little Bride
Forever I had groomed her for this day,
I felt as thought my heart would burst with pride,
Her dad stood there to give our girl away,
As all admired the beauty of the bride.

I allowed for just a moment to think back,

Premium Member Ode to Lu Loo- don't go
Do not leave the park yet,
Whatever the compulsion,
Many friends owe a debt,
To your poetic excellence!

battles have never been won
by leaving the battle field,
But enemy has been undone
When the hurt do not yield!

So carry the pen as a gun,
To maim those...Read More

THE LADY DOWN THE LANE
You were a sweet old lady
Whom I admired greatly
You always kept a smile
On your face and
A kind word to say
You always could tell
When someone had a problem
You said, that it was written
All over their faces
Your advice was always spot on
You...Read More

Intuition
Listening sounds hearing
seemingly knowing the difference
whispering the voices of righteousness
time lapsing in discernment
the will to live on
a survival mode is present
lessons learned abroad
gasping on the path
trees blowing and you're knowing
taken over by surprises
lasting life of intuitions
power to strive everlastings
hidden sounds...Read More

Premium Member Nature Inspired
The dawn earliest spring's 
bouquet of colour brings.

A white butterfly peers 
at yellow angel's tears; 
flutters and flies away. 
A blue bugle at bay, 
rains nature has inspired
summons scents so admired.

droplets
Raindrops fall in the lake a ring of embraces
Soft and shy as a maiden’s kiss,
Welcome back my lovelies you have been away too long.
On big leaved plants on the lake’s banks, pearls
Large and small glitter in the evening light for...Read More

MERLIN THE MAGICIAN
For years I’ve admired
Merlin the magician
He was the most
Powerful wizard of 
All times
He could shape shift
To look like anybody
Or anything and
His powers were unlimited
But I really loved him
For teaching Arthur
How to be a king
He also stood beside him
When his back...Read More

The actor

Tom Chance was an outstanding actor and friend
I saw him play a professor dying of cancer
The death scene was especially moving.

I admired how he was able to separate
The role...Read More

Cat Independence
Cats are amazing critters!
Of course, all cat lovers
are well aware of this;
so, it is not to you
whom I speak. But to
those less furry among-st
us—to those less inclined
to seek a warm lap and
shamelessly purr to the
heat and comfort...it is to
you whom...Read More

Premium Member THE PICNIC COURTSHIP OF THE QUEEN AND PRINCE O'GRADY-
See the squealing of the gentleman,
I think he's angry at the baker man.
He finds it hard to see the passionflowers,
Overshadowed by the fair devours,

Who is that hiding near the queen?
I think she'd like to reread the magazine.
She is but a...Read More

Premium Member Once Upon a Time
Once upon a time I stepped into a forest
And lost myself
For days
Wandered around trying to smell mushrooms
But they had no smell
And their taste was not okay

Once upon a time I flew like the birds
In spirit form
For two or three lifetimes
Refusing...Read More

Lift Every Voice
Lift ev'ry voice and cry
While all our children die
Raise up the deaf'ning sigh of misery
Let all the people hear
With ever-sharpened ear
How we have lost our dignity and pride
Long ago, we had community others desired
Long ago, we had prosperity to be...Read More

In her coloured summer dress
A real lady of the sky and land
Her husband was a happy man
He admired his magnificent wife
Then Alderan exploded...

Admired in fear we seek to tame
Our mutual assured destruction
Better not to roil the mane
Flying breath defies direction

He sought to run away
Snared again in torrid protest
Feigned obey your silly play
Shadows of his former tempest

They bleat and beat their chests
Corralled today...Read More

24 seconds of silence for (Kobe Bryant)

Twenty four seconds of silence,
seems like forever, 
and yet seems so short.  

Just like Kobe's journey in life,
so much accomplished and yet,
cut off in death tragically.

Kobe was known for his aggressive
competitive spirit, the...Read More

MUSIC MAKES GREAT TIMES GREAT
AND MAKES BAD TIMES MISERABLE
IT CREATES CONVERSATIONS
AND CAUSES PEOPLE TO DIVIDE
IT MEANS DIFFERENT THINGS TO PEOPLE

TO THE MOMENT WHICH SOMETHING HAPPENED.
