Premium Member It's Limerick Time
The clown in him thought, 'It's Limerick Time!'
Couldn't come up with a single darn line --
   Poor guy racked his brain

Good Yankee Advice for Spring
Don’t be fooled by purple crocuses
or bright yellow daffodils – it’s an illusion.
They’ll be under a crust of snow by morning,
and the shovels you put away last month 
will have to be brought out and used again.

Spring is a magician...Read More

Dark Obsession

Invading thoughts it feeds away
Has to have its fill each day
No diversion intervention
Just one focus one intention
Fevered thinking crazed and blurred

Much Like My Love: This Poem Has No Name

Dirty Finger Nails
They're good for little else you know
And look like dirty paws
For use in scratching backs and such
And washing dirty draws
Whilst painted up to look so cool
And matching up with clothes
They wonder everywhere we go
And root inside our nose
I always watch...Read More

Godly Counsel
Written: by Miracle Man

I never seek the counsel of an unbeliever,
for this sort of advice could become my undoing.

- How did I do?

- Well...

The instruments were all on song
And did everything they should.
The key you found was off the scale
And the conductor was very good.


The whole thing didn't start too well
And then it stopped too soon.
There were parts...Read More

Slope innocent cheeks and naive exuberant faces

Round in circles and up and down goes the delight

Spinning laughter and giggling all through the night

Tinker bells chime on feathered dreams and foot hold
