Love in the Time of Covid
Although other news Covid’s somehow upstaged,
My friend called to tell me her son got engaged.
It felt like a beacon of light in a storm
For news that is good is no longer the norm.

The newly betrothed also let their friends know

Premium Member She Reflected Beauty
She was so amazingly girly
She epitomized happy and squirrel-y.
A nerdy bird from New York adopted her
Seeing her as king, gentle, refined and pure

She reflected the beauty of outside
She warranted help from those inside
The nerdy bird said I have seen enough

on a gentleman’s humble farm
six hungry mouths to feed
an ambitious garden
behind the chicken coop
each hen adopted by the kids
given funny names
inside a big tall fence some bunnies
all given bunny names
around the dining table 
one big happy family

Premium Member The Healer
Chiron was the son of Philyra and Titan,
He was created half-human,
While his back-half was equine,
Best-loved of the centaurian line,
Abandoned by his mother in all haste,
His form regarded by her with distaste,
But although his future had seemed dim,
The god Apollo adopted...Read More

Singing the Black Cat Blues
People stop and stare
when I pass them on the street,
some believe it is bad luck
as our paths cross each other
others turn away and do not bother.

Singing the black cat blues.

Superstition follows we wherever I go,
like a black cloud ready to...Read More

Pardon mine allegiance to infidelity
Unfaithful marital transgressions
self admitted indictment,
crime and punishment,
no longer think high lee
entailing no mister re: demeanors,
I searingly weathered

(George by bushed, albeit thankfully,
no unwanted child left behind),
nonetheless one unforgettable
indelible, execrable, and abominable
professedly owned his
civil warring battle of life

transgressions undeservedly heaped

Yet another dragon, we had to get
And he just had to have a pet.
For whatever reason, he chose a frog;
So we took him to a bog.

He cared for that frog, 
as if it were A beloved dog.

Father's Birthday
Today is our father's birthday,
Hip hip hooray, what a beautiful day.

Mother would have a birthday cake and candles,
Thoughtful presents from father's relatives.

I like to send father a handsome tie each year,
And maybe a shirt to go with his suit.

Premium Member Dormant Desert Dunes
Such is love like dormant desert dunes amidst their  decubitus decline,

Bewitching  barmecidal brides beckon my last drops of desire…

Overwhelming  obelus and ototoxic behavior in loves' great divide,

For the howling desert winds evaporate my love through eviternity…

Business :: Petrarchan Sonnet

How coolly expressed inability
to continue our business relation;
simple reason to avoid frustration
at latter day feeling futility;
Now you're questioning my ability
to stay as your partner; accusation

Forcing to doubt your credibility.

But, still you're dealing in a selfish...Read More

It had been a hellish week.

On Monday
my lonely and tired AfricanAmerican husband
told me, as gently as possible,
that what I had hoped was a temporary separation
is to be extended into perpetuity.

This separation had been scheduled to terminate
when my Fetal Alcohol daughter...Read More

Our Tree

The green tree in the box, 
kept in the attic,

Not because it is dead,

but a project
to be assembled. 
Much like our life, 
from the beginning of I do, 
lovingly placed together,

You consume the whole of me constantly,
Fair drafts ensure flight of our loyal tryst,
Though all known plans bear out uncertainty,
Our center grants said goals to be unmissed.

A misty vineyard drips of subtle dew,
And swells our noble chalice soberly,
Till such, we...Read More
