Poet Profound

The cascading stream leaping in swirling ebullience
Through dancing shadows of swaying trees entranced
The spectral dew drops draping the glinting grass tips
Weave lattice of splendor on the meadow bejeweled
The drizzling dust on moonbeam in blue satin night
Adorns the pearl laced waves...Read More

I stand there, poised, a statue,
holding my paintbrush to my temple;
waiting for the lightbulb of sentiment to wash over me.

Then, like a distant star shooting across the cosmos,
or an injection of adrenaline into an arrhythmic heart;
my thoughts become as clear...Read More

After His agony, the tomb closed
Sealed, guarded by the best
Despite their efforts, He arose.

to lose a muse is none but sorrow,
no fuse can chase away the fear-
words shall appear and be near tomorrow

my inspiration is my revelation,
creativity with epiphanies of light-
found insight in a flight of meditation

divinity in security and laughter in purity,

Premium Member ''Where Art Thou, Muse''
Where art thou, Muse? I seek inspiration!
I have endured your absence for too long:
restore to me the gift of creation
once more, that I may sing a new, gay song.
When you return I'll feel great elation,
for as my muse you can...Read More

Dear Writer
Dear Writer, 

You edify


Oozing grace

Dripping brawn

Strength of a tiger

Frailty of a kittie

All in your works 

Thoroughly revealed

Heart is a rarer gem 

Fecund is your art 

Bibliophile's heister

Mind of magic freed 

Minds of readers held

When into the waiting

Vault of the universe

Moves amongst the throng with confidence,
   with a buoyant outlook

Poetry is a challenging art;
it requires skill and meter
and a poet that’s awful smart,
or he will tire and teeter.

Poetry requires wit and heart;
one must be a practiced poet
who writes with grace and art
to forge beauty and not blow it.

“That’s what I love about baseball –
it doesn’t mean anything.” – Woody Allen

Spring is here once more:
fresh-mown grass, and onions frying –
and so you know the score.

No criticizing, analyzing –

Elbowmarks On My Window Sill
I sit and reminisce about the "good ol' days"
The prelapsarian time before it all went sideways

The details of life were all that I saw
There was no rich, no poor, no petit bourgeois 

As an unbeknownst member of the proletariat

Divine Afflatus

Premium Member Sonnet to Calliope, Chief of the Nine Muses
My muse sighs and leaves me unwell
and cuckolds me like faithless love
as if she's ne'er my god or belle,
afflatus or creative breath	 
who came from the summits above
to save me from poetic death!

Piano Chords
Preposterous melody won't exist,
Inside a piano without the chord's beat
Aubade is formed when dolefulness emits
Nails the body to where she always sits;
Ordering her fingers to start a writ.

Corners her world with piano as a friend
Heaves fro the melancholia life has...Read More

Cavemen thought only of self preservation and sex.
In someway evolution was faltered.

You cannot hold an inch, or a mile,
you cannot see a pound, or a ton.
They are but measurements.
They do not exist but in our understanding
