My dear friend, 
The book came today. 
Well, actually the magazine. 
It is the one you gave me
for the holidays…
(soft crying)

That seems ages ago now. 
Yet today, the front cover…
was all about the upcoming days, 
to spend with loved...Read More

Premium Member Why Did She Die --- If Only I Knew
I stood tall in front of the head stone.
A bunch of cheap flowers in my hands
Were given to me by my uncle.
I felt all the discomfort of the world.
What was I doing there, staring at a tomb?
I was told my...Read More

Glaciers moved with determined strength 
in their destinies, pushing and upheaving
boulders large beyond belief
and whatever else stood in their paths
while coursing over and through the earth's crust
scraping into creation a landscape
of mountains, cliffs, valleys, moraines,
dumlins, eskers and notches,
kettle lakes, cirques...Read More

In my hometown driving around, a surreal haze descends
Almost a year away and I can barely find me
Treasures kept are hard to find and fit

Foundations of yesterday are broken branches strewn
Everything seems to have disappeared from here
I changed my life...Read More

Pondering Of A Puddle

Ponded and becalmed after the downpour, lying in shining stillness, I reflect my earthly existence; above me newly leafed limbs, and beyond, the beauty of motley skies in the afternoon’s brightening quietude. On the side of a country backroad, I...Read More

Stream of the Soul
I sit down in the cold stream.
My troubles have taken their toll, and as spring makes its appearance, I look upon my other self.

My old self I lost
Ages ago it seems

This calming stream. Relaxing, this stream

Sitting here, this chilly stream
Seems...Read More

A gentle curve of the lips
Eyes so soft they put you to sleep
A faint crimson across his cheek
You see all that was
All that will ever be
I feel the breeze beneath my wings
As an icicle forms beneath my feet
What was love,...Read More

A is for Apple
Took knowledge in a logical way
Took out books starting with "A"
After a few months and a week
Wasn't even close to the "B's"
But I could tell you anything you wanted to know about aardvarks and artichokes

But I kept at it figurin...Read More

Romantic Promise
I am here to stay
Until my bones decay
Where else would I go
If I loved you since ages ago
Here I build a strong-solid nest
Where our love resides for best
If then this is deep from heart
None of us would ever depart
But in...Read More

Premium Member Maybe It Was Eleanor
Ever wonder where big ideas come from?

Memories of FDR
from newsreel clips -
a lion-headed striking man
with rakish grin,
jaw jutting proudly, 
signature cigarette holder
clenched in his teeth
tilted ever upward...
soaring to the heavens
as he cruises by
waving to admirers
in his convertible coupe.

Short List FDR...Read More

I was just on the brink of giving up on love,
I was about to jump into a fog of loneliness.

But you came and rescued me from despair,
you were my very own superman.

You brought me back from darkness,

I am almost happy
(for my grandson)

I am almost happy
Writing this letter to you
Even though
I am yet to see you
You are hardly a month old
I am told
I won't interfere with your growth now
Hopefully we'll talk about everything
When you are old enough
To understand

Hold your dreams, bind them with rainbow beams
tumble sweetly and let heart's passion arise
sow the seeds that love gives passion's great might
that Life and Love both gift oft in joyful surprise.

Premium Member A Moon's Madness

You lay among the sheets,
as still as death itself,
tho' your bosom rises-and-falls with gentle breaths.
What do you dream, my darling?

Oh surely, of fancies that shame this trembling night.
Moonlight through louvers paints you -
slices your form into porcelain shards of luster...Read More

Yeah ...

They hijacked my mind,
Hard-wired my neural synapses,
Said I'd be famous ...
(Wealthy, certainly).

And with MY financial issues, what choice?
Family no longer cares ...
They gave up on me ages ago,
(Who can blame?).

They wanted to see what I'd see -
Feel what...Read More

In My Mind Forever

Looking at the perennially full river,
Its water not stopping to flow ever
I remembered the age-old saying,
A truth, the true friends are forever.

On the river front, the sun was sinking...Read More

Alaska, The Last Frontier

Alaska; the wilderness state, the last frontier:
Where majestic mountains, 
Deliver streams into flowing rivers: 
Down slopes covered in forests 
Of Sitka Spruce and Western Hemlock
That dominates the landscape.
The name Alaska originates 
From the Aleut word 'Aleyska,'
Meaning the...Read More

Not all hunters can use it with bravery-

Conflict between Ages
conflict broke out ages ago
between the young and old
The young complained
“Your bones are very strong
ours just fragile and weak”
“Fine”,  old men said in unison
“Let’s wait fifty years to come.
When you reach our ages
then a good balanced fight
we shall have...Read More

A Witch's lullaby
when the sun sets down,
at far end of the town;
when night creeps in,
sky full of silver spin;
when mortals are drunk in spirits,
voyaged to the slumberland;
i walk down the bridge,
to fulfil my grudge.
stealthily waddle to avoid all sight,
thick mist shields me...Read More
