happy hunting grounds upheaval

perhaps collective aboriginal ghosts return
to haunt cruel innocent heir/heiresses

Premium Member Wake Up With The Chickens

Why do older folks wake up with the chickens
Our brain says “get the hell up, this is not fiction!”
Why is this so
Late for a show?
Even heard it affects older age kittens

When I look through
My telescope I can see
The burning sun
As it lets out
Radioactive rays
That spreads throughout
The universe
Affecting our planet
It also sends out negative rays
That interferes with people
And the environment
It affects the weather
Sea levels and crops
Causing the unthinkable
To the atmosphere
And human...Read More

Premium Member The Flamingos Flamencoed
Written by Gail DeBole
January 20, 2020

A flock of Flamingos so pink
Had feathers that made people blink.
They group-danced with heads high
In a Flamenco style.
Ate shrimp, algae, and water to drink.

Author's Note: The type of food affects the color of the feathers.

If I was God

they create plans

Dyslexia affects me very severely,
but only when I sleep, when I dream only.
While in a dream state if I'm presented something to read,
like a newspaper, book or magazine,
none of the printed words make total sense to me,
they are all mixed...Read More

After a lifelong happy and productive duration

Premium Member While riding a paisley tiger

I collected the kinetic swirls
of differing shades
in the dizzying reflections
of how you made me feel

Whirling affects
blurred in calliope sonnets
and brass ring reachings
while riding a paisley tiger

My pockets filled
with these mesmerizing emotions
sculpted of Ferris Wheel desires
and carousel dreams of you

Until suddenly...Read More

There are many things in this world

The Greatest Failure
Perhaps the greatest failure of all time
occurred in the last 100 years,
with no fanfare or remorse
and little discussion in high places.

The possibility for the human race
to raise itself with better health
and longer life has been squandered,
by destructive behavior and ignorance.

Death ...
