This ailment
This ailment
It makes a unique statement
The love that it fosters is so much
I am brave and collected now
As ever I was happy to be myself
Disliked by many
Loved by all
Hoping to start the summer 
Like a wish that comes true
Thank you...Read More

Birthday Blues
I wish words have wings to fly,
and reach beyond the blue sky
just like the birds that sweetly sing,
my warm wishes will tributes bring.

I wish words have lips to kiss;
like butterflies find purest bliss
in the petals of the morning bloom,

A million movies in my teens
i have seen Jekyll and Hyde 
And the rusty nail in Joy Ride

An axe-wielding maniac, wild and mad

The world in its glory, glittering gold.
The future, present and past will unfold.
The greater good, lesser evil; look at all these wondrous people.
Freezing winters, raging storms; keys to paradise ever shown.
Bone to bone, war to war; humans are not ever...Read More

A world of sunshine

The story I told my son in bedtime 3 : Apple
There is an island having a lot of apples
A boy live there
Oneday, all of these apples lost
The boy is finding them
He looked around all over the island
He didn't see them
So,He went to the sea
And when he reached somewhere of the...Read More

Premium Member An Artists Journey And In The End
A lifetime of learning
Like un-Religion, practiced un-Art.

Focusing one eye out, one eye in

And marrying the two
Within disciplines learned… ‘Aha’ moments.

Nothing’s meet ‘Nothing’
Infinity’s meet ‘Infinity’.

All merged in ‘Beyond Understanding’.

Whose field long ago I laid down in
Waiting for Sun’s morning gifts.

Coming into...Read More

Certain processes
To cause collaberations

We wore our meri blouses
And on stilts built our houses…
We carried our bilums so beautiful
And custom dressings so very colourful.

We wore our island dresses
And displayed our art in richness…
We played our native string-band
And drew creative designs on sand.

We wore our...Read More

Blackberry bushes barricade the background
of your immature stature.
Braided chestnut hair rests gently 
on weakly shoulders
as your hazel eyes beam a child's rippling wonder.
Bee glazed berry juice permeates your smiling cheeks.
The taste streams alive as I gaze upon you
with your burgundy...Read More

Love and hate
The rain shatters when it hits the window seal
While you may be enjoying your favorite meal
But you know one day the rain will someday steal
And maybe one day peal
away the the bad feeling you may feel.

Shot a rebel through the heart.
Cancer kills but life is art.
You tried to put a stop to all that we are,
But we are too hot to handle; you can’t grab hold of a star.

Fire your guns; I’m invincible.

A complex God
A complex God

I can’t always be your salvation.
One day I will rip you apart.
I won’t always be a helping hand,
Because one day I will reach inside and tear out your heart.

Then...Read More

They first appear propped up
at the end of the bed naked as if 
they had just sprouted from my ankles.

Premium Member SHANTELLE

Made of stone, Shantelle - a tower.
Castille of knightly breeding, she
causes a coward to cower
or a headstone as one’s marquee.

Marble robes of nobility -
curves like pert Kanagawa wave.
Shantelle’s immortal legacy,
her character - Mount Fuji brave.

Jutting cliff of Collinsport, Maine -

The opposite of OY is YO,
Two words that most New Yorkers know
And people ‘cross the globe as well,
Though what they mean, not all can tell.

So I’ll explain: the term “Oy vey”
Expresses “Woe is me!” dismay
Or “Oh, my goodness!” or “Good...Read More

Opining On Sacraments Of Self-Ordained Loathsome Sacredotalists

When the rascal dons his garments of meerschaum shade
with loud mendacious voice he covers his mugwump cries
Waving a banner of loquacity, expostulations are made,
and he assumes a 'Forma Pauperis,' as greed's vault denies.
