No one can know of tomorrow
An ill wind may blow as they say
Stand back and give me the morning
For the whole world is mine today

Satan’s Voice
By: Tom Wright

That reminding voice that whispers in my ear,
Rouses thoughts that long have slumbered.
But forgiveness has erased all guilt and fear,
Now by erstwhile deeds I’m not encumbered.

Sooner or later an ill wind blows for each of us,
We err...Read More

Premium Member The White Roses Died With You
We planted roses in the spring
when love was floating in the air.
A diamond glittered on your ring
reflected in your hazel eyes
the rainbow hues of paradise.
We had so much to give and share.

The months went by, the roses bloomed,
but when one...Read More

Sewing machine, long idle, gathered dust
In a hollow on the council tip, where
Motionless it stands, in time rigid; still.
Fashions in one’s mind, grandma’s legacy
Of skill, stitched in a place named ‘Tunic Mill’
A long row of stone wall terrace houses,
Families of...Read More

Run Your Race
Run your race at a sedate pace
With steps primed to succeed
Regardless of faces of stress
Blown your way by an ill-wind. 

Run your race with all the vigour
Bottled up deep within your soul
Saturated to perfection with the rigour
To surge forth as...Read More

An ill wind blew December in

Allowing pause for meditation

And memories of less torrid times

In sweeter and much warmer climes

Than our more recent past had known 

But which I had been shown 

when once upon a time I’d loved you.

He has talent first seen as delinquency
That has given him fame, perhaps infamy
When he’s mad or chagrined
He’s inclined to break wind 
With a sound like a Beethoven symphony

An ill wind blows
Straight across the land:
You can feel it now.

It’s a desert gale
That dessicates compassion;
A sandstorm
Scouring empathy from the heart.

It’s a parching blast,
A dry sirocco
That burns away kindness.

A wind that turns landscapes
Into arid civic ruin.

Waiting For The Man, 9 11

I was sicker than sick, and waiting for the man
Bodies fell on bodies, stone fell on stone
‘Welcome to the Orange answer phone’

I was rushing to the toilet...Read More

An ill wind blows this hurricane Sandy ashore,
Making everyone wonder just what is in store.
The full moon will amplify the already large waves,
And Mother Nature in her glory will misbehave.

In a mega storm people will come together,
Knowing God is in...Read More

I couldn’t fall asleep
So I put on my hat and coat 
And took a walk
Down the old mountain trail
That led from my home
Down into the center of town
And each time a gust of wind
Pushed over my left shoulder
I stopped to...Read More

Alas, as hunters treed their prey
envisioning the feast
gravied meal at end of day
sopped up in breaded yeast.

An ill wind blew
and no one knew
from where it emanated

As sugar in the innards boils
and then - a little toot uncoils

An eccentric drama queen or two,
Oh yes indeed, I’ve known a few.
Ex-daughter-in-law comes to mind
The sweetest girl you’d ever find,
But should an ill wind chance to blow
She changed to someone you don’t know.
She threw a fork across the table,

Average high school
A mediocre 
Imposing square box
Towering over small frame homes
Where Mothers wait behind closed doors
And Fathers return at dusk
Newspapers tucked under
In different signs and languages 
Sport side up
In blue collar tradition.
French teacher listens
Eyes shifting from side to side

It comes replete with verve and belief

Full blown in its gusto and rote of surety 

Yet its goal is to confound and mislead

And bury all the true faces of love

The Facets of Love

And touches souls

It is a deep bond and all forgiving

Heralded by the sounds of guns
They came like an ill-wind
Sweeping towards our choices
we fled and upon return
Blood, blood every where was seen

The gun of thunder boomed 
Onthe trunk of the toads
We were the toads 
Whose choices sunk under-feet

Ghost Town Trains
By a rotted down shack 
Near an old railroad track,
The trains rattled past and sometimes came back;
There’s a thin plume of smoke
From the old chimney stack,
An underfed scar on a night painted black.

Hangs a dead end sign
On the long disused...Read More
