Caution to the wind, opens doors, unseen by careful eyes.  The greatest minds achieve by leaps of faith; 
knowing progress hides in the unseen void.

Doing the black-hole dive can save a stagnating 
marble in space; on the other side...Read More

Pick them at random, the best way to start.
The very old or very young are the easiest to part,
With the info you need to get the ball rolling.
You scare them at first and then start cajoling.

Say it twice if that is what you don’t want

Between Alpha and Omega
Written By:  D. Collins 4/7/2018

There are but two questions to answer, my friend.
Is the ball rolling?  And, was it worth it in the end?
Anything other than that is strictly called chatter.
The beginning and the end are the only...Read More

A blind date
sprung on two unwary victims.
He turned up early in suit and tie
obviously uncomfortable with
a situation beyond his comfort zone.

She showed up on time
dressed in an elegant clean cut dress
wearing high heels and
a subtle touch of perfume,
oozing confidence, yet
carrying...Read More

The Three Islands Sleep
The Three Islands Sleep!

Sleep, sleep, the islands asleep!
Sleep while the winds blow on her face,
On her trees, and on her mountains and hills,
Sleep when the thieves dressed in suit come in,
Like the befuddled man sleeps in his own vomit,
Or like...Read More

At any rate contest

Take control of what you have, make no sacrifices

Twiddle My Thumbs and Tap My Toes
Attention's gone
Doesn't seem like there's anything going on.

Sitting around
Trying to find something to fill this time I've found.

Frustrations show
I could've been more productive today, I know.

But instead
I think I'll spend the rest of the day in bed.

Who needs motivation when...Read More

Lazing around just will not pay

Why no poems
He asks me often
Why I did not write poems
When I fell in love with him

Dazed under your spell
I sure lost my footing like
A ball rolling down a slope

Words abandoned me
A thick cloud covered my brain
You think insane folks can write?...Read More

Love is Blind
Her heart swells with ecstacy
When he plays basketball in scorching heat
Dodges the ball here and there
With a sly smile dwelling everywhere

Before scoring the goal, he lifts his head
Throws a glance where she with everyone, treads
Drunk, deep blue but cosmic cross...Read More

A pleasant evening
Romantic streets in Paris
Killed, done in cold blood

Picture as warzone
Music stops and ball rolling
A nightmares in live

The death in Paris
Fire with assault rifle
France close its borders

One Day
As past still haunted me for the pain felt
It was about time for tranquility
Possibly adding a notch in my belt
An escape from vulnerability.
In paradise, I was on a mission
To gather thoughts and fill the vacancy
Luck from cosmic force set my...Read More

Footprints in Carbon

The village was nestled on the coast by itself, as if God had put it there all alone, on a shelf.

The residents were isolated just like the town, and universally uninformed from the top on down.

It was no longer a...Read More

How does a man meet a gorgeous woman
So it doesn't seem he's out on the make

Everyone knows, it shows
Not trying to hurt the readers
Or become a poetic verbal ling beater
I’ll fade out of the last
These ends creep quietly past
It starts in fear
I’ll give it 
Another year
Then gather all that was said
And put regret back 
Into my head
Sorting what...Read More

a single “truth” would

Hello there, beautiful woman behind the piano.
