 I saw no way- The heavens were stitched
I felt the columns close
The earth reversed her hemispheres
I touched the Universe

My life spirals ever downward...
The grave taunts me with its laugh.
Death's bony fingers are affixed my throat
As the jester of my unmerited epitaph.

My angst at...

As we worship, bring the silence
in gracious peace ring down the day.
Stay the light that's stained with violence,
deliver calm, pass ill storms away.

Standing all alone in the woods;
eyes shut, I feel the lilting light.
Sun dodges needles through the crown,
beams land on my skin softly so.
Brisk breezes quicken...

Winter Cat - Summer Cat
She curled her tail around her toes,
Covering whiskers, chin and nose.
An ear twitch here, another there;
She claimed as hers the easy chair.

Tormentor of both mole...

It must have felt like love at first,
The clinging of the ivy vines,
Until his rich red heart had burst.

Oh ...

Spring-tide ...
Always things that juxtapose,
Life never flows as smoothly as a gentle rill 'round a stone.
Brief notes of harmony, torn asunder by a cacophony...

He assembled in darkness the corroded horn
by familiarity and sense of touch.
Then cast as thunder into the empty night
long tones void of musical melody.
Sustained tones,...

Premium Member Child Footles

Sleepy,
Weepy,

Sweetie,
Cutie,

Babe drools.
It crawls,

On floor,
On four.

Burbles,
Gabbles,

Wets bed,
Cute bud!

Guileless,
Artless,

Chuckles, 
Giggles,

Grows up. 
Sits up.

Child walks.
Child runs.

Climbs up.
Falls down.

Naughty,
Haughty,

Spoiled brat!
Moppet!

Mom’s joy!
Dad’s toy!

God’s gift
World’s light!

Waltzing ‘mongst the redwoods she now meanders
Shyly smiling, candid in guileless virtue
Feeling carefree, gleeful, of threats unwary...
Progress encroaches.
