Virtual jobs, virtual schools.

Spring's dabbled hues tender hearts a growthful bounty, 
Love sprung amidst the fluttering of its emerald leaves,
High upon mounds beneath an affectionate bluish peak,
Cascading conduit spews of embracing inclined surrender,

Accumulating Anger: My Love Was Serpentine
My love was serpentine to the touch
I can't quite explain it...the love of mine
Had gone away from my sight and such

I keep tripping over hurdles
Barriers forged between our hearts
Walls of a garrisoned fortress

but I long for the...Read More

Premium Member Dance of December
December came dancing along
Implying clouds to play their pouring songs
Drenching land with affectionate warmth
Wrapping mountains in snowy calms
Enhancing bubbly streams with drizzly charms
Ornamenting rocks with elegant white tops
Draping valleys with delicate frills of fog
Soaking parched roads with indulgent mop

Tattooed Man with the Blue Guitar

Gaunt, lanky, dreamlike with an eerie stride, 
he could pass for a living Giacometti sculpture.
A shiny blue guitar hangs over a shoulder,

his sleeveless arms a-swirl with paisley-like tattoos, 
an orangatang reddish beard smothering his face, 
his hair pulled back into...Read More

Premium Member Night Time Brings


Night time brings a silence,
a loneliness that drags hours
through the mind's corridors

Winding past words shared
during the day, earlier promises,
affectionate offerings found my eyes,
longing for merely a touch from
far away wishes, rubbing brass lamps,
picking four leaf clovers...

I was asked, " Is...Read More

Beneath a dark
and sinister 
sky where 
hide behind 
pumpkin patch wishes
and ghostly 

Ghouls and goblins

final October eve
seeking candy
and other 
sugary goodies,
lest a trick 
be played
amidst giggles
and grins

As I watch from 
eerie front porch 
draped in

Day By Day
Waning love is a cold diamond thing
The hurt pressure 
from the thought of losing you
is such a hard burden
Squeezing the hope out of me

Heavy-hearted acceptance ain’t easy,
especially when the weeping pang of separation 
comes prematurely rushing through

Day by day,

Every Sunday morning,
	Sunlight softens her corners
Awakening colors of purple and blue
	Red, gold and amber shine through
Glass stained by the artist’s creative brush

Her doors are sturdy and accepting
	As a mother’s loving gaze
Welcoming her children back home
	After they’ve gone away
Somewhere beyond her...Read More
