As the days drifting meant nothing to do

Being disappointed was usual as the sun became bright

O' the fallen snow;
Mixed within temperatures bow;
They themselves shall enter in;
Deep amidst there is winter grins;
And unless they agree to submit;
From water to land commit
Ravagers all from breast to breast;
Tease the animals and forest birds that make nest;
Keepers sort polar...Read More

Amidst the daily coup,

The UK seeks to leave the EU.
It's no longer enjoying the view

Love? One might consult a dictionary,
For a long, detailed recitation
Of words both fulsome and cautionary,
Words including "fondness" and "flirtation",
Through to ones like "passion" and "obsession",
With examples from the great romances,
Where mutual love is in possession,
And there are so many happy...Read More

"But, I don't think they have a prayer!"

Some cards were read without ado
The Psychic said, "All that...Read More

Are men meek :: French Canadian Sonnet

My friend opines, men are strong, but women
are much stronger enough to make them weak;
It's difficult to believe; Are men meek?
Hurting men's ego; how he has written.

Unfortunately, he is very right;
Study says, women's brains are hardwired to
focus more on emotional...Read More

Snotty haughty sea turtle.
Stuck up
Barely speaking to other sea creatures
Much ado about nothing

For decades
Now trying to pretend you are not haughty?

Waves surge amidst a zest for life inland,
It recedes, repeats, to refresh again,
I'm caught in what's known as a tidal pool,
For those trapped for their safety to be cool.

Draws on the young with minds to...Read More

Premium Member CRISP NOTES

Much ado here
With poise that skips
Our purpose here

Too much acid
Now fizzles buzz
Lost cause sinks

Why worry now?
Stay on the way
Of mindful hope

When joy goes
Sense empty shell
Frame hollow mood

Anxious no more
Sad afterglow
In times of loss

Sadness seeds stern
As concerns turn
To odd illusion
