Premium Member The Snowy Albatross

Fishing one day in the southern ocean
The sun had risen and was shining bright
Overhead me I heard a commotion
A snowy albatross gliding in flight.

With a huge wing span he circled around
The haul on my deck had caught his keen eye

We had a special visitor.
Our world became suddenly brighter.
She was such a charmer!
Such a delighter! 

With her sparkly diamond slippers
and the way her whole being glows,
Keira’s a picturebook princess

 Salvation Was Prepaid
Written: by Miracle Man

Gods judgment requires,
that for misdeeds someone pay.
Salvation has been prepaid,
for those who seek it today.

When we accept this free gift,
we’re no longer convicted.
By shifting our guilt to Jesus,
we ceased being afflicted.

God accepted Jesus’ payment,

A rabbit’s foot, auspicious
an albatross for sailors
or China’s magic bamboo

Premium Member SHIP SHADOW

Within the shadow of a broken heart
Passages of the sorrowful tuned harp
Pacify the lonesome wretched struggle
Of the weary, drained despots who juggle.

The distant storm draws nigh, the albatross
Leads, lightning shines the wayward, their due course.
Avarice game of chance, search for...Read More

At any proffered instant, implies love.
Love stays consistent midst souls synergy.
Offerings concerning depth, flights a dove.
Heightens promptly per blazon glittery,
Albatross compensation inwardly.

Avarice charms enlighten, not consume,
Lure some timeless, tempestuous heirloom.
Wherein, the victor and victim cite one,
Abreast wants, vies will and...Read More

Premium Member Of Regret
Regret is the luxury 
Which we can ill afford
Of memory’s gilded albatross
Encrusted with jewels
Of sorrow and pain
Draped around our necks 
To mock our joys 
With guilt and shame.

Why must you always stay 
Tethered to me?
You keep creeping behind me
Continually tugging at my sleeve
When will you leave me be, at last?
I try to forget wrongs I never made right
I try to make peace 
With missed opportunities
Choices I wish...Read More

Homographs are delightful.
Spelled exactly alike 
But totally different meanings

Words like Boil

Blue – a feeling or a color?

A toothpaste? a hill or a rooster’s feathers?
Albatross – bird or burden?

You're The Eternal Ocean

Engagement with thwarted life in existential primal crisis
searches experiential solution in life’s nebulous narrative.
With purgation of edgy emotions and clasping catharsis
hears the whispers of the inner invite of the divine ecstasy.

Cohesive complex sense of self, the crafted chronicle
epitomizing the dubious...Read More

“It Is Finished”

Predestined to atone HE was given extreme unction,
And in the shadow of the cross HE was draped.
Jesus was a sacrifice, Virgin born, for this function,
HE became restitution for the sins we escaped.

Flight of the Albatross
Breaking  the surface with someone new

You’re happy.

To avert myself from pulling you back under
Selfishly to comfort my ego and what remains of a shell

A Dead Man's Boat
A dead man’s boat
rowed itself from isle to isle,
dragging its dead man in its wake,
partially submerged, their tether tenuous,
yet somehow never broken.

where the slaves had been freed
from the crack of their master’s whip,
and their master, with...Read More

A cruise sails into blueness of a vast bosom, open,

Premium Member Albatross- An effortless flight with barely a wing beat

An effortless flight with barely a wing beat,
following ships for hours to eat.
They love the windy swept sea,
diving deep with glee.
Stop spilled oil at sea!
I send the whole world a plea,
the fishing nets dragging, trap their feet.
