Cain's Son
A.W. Nutter

Trespassing through my domain
Your excursion has become a habit
Sampling your fruit I must abstain
My lustful cravings I try to inhibit

Gliding across the forest floor

Premium Member UNNOTICED

(Dedication: For Dr Ram Mehta.)

Morning light
Spreads divine psalm --
Touch of zest

By this stone bench
Sleeping cat purrs --
Feline dreamscapes

That old man sits alone
Strange neighbour --
Thoughtful wanderings

out of 
warm sleep with
hints of apricot, 
amber blush, a toying amour
an intense inquisitiveness to embrace the world.
To fondle the ocean's surface, etch lavender fields,...

all in a day
Ceaseless demands
each one a folly
To which I respond
 my answers jolly
Lesson time
Minds are weary
Endless chopping
Meals so  healthy
Shopping ordered
Food a plenty
Excursion time
To burn the energy

Message in a Bottle - Here - John
Our excursion brushed past bashing tides.
An uncharted desert shelter
is where the vessel resides.
Stripped of rhyme and reason;
I behold demons
strumming spiked lyres
yielding me

Words fail
Meaning blurry;
Nothing rhymes


Upstairs apartment
Renovation works;
Pneumatic floor blast


Idle talk punctuates
Not much meaning;
Bizarre thoughts


Sonic headache
Disturbing pounding;
Head time-bomb ticking


Constipated movie
Suspicious assumptions;
Character flaws


Dragonfly pond
Lotus flowers bloom;
Mud bed ascend
