October: I'm eighteen, shortcutting home
through an autumn-burnished churchyard -
copper-lustred leaves, moss-skinned stone -
a jaunty swing of skater skirt and arm,
college folder square-sturdy in my hand.
In Another Time
the waning moonlight thinly enveloped
the dusky canvas obscurely sprawling
across the way from the window I looked,
I knew a park was there with slides and...
The Fiddler's Cat
An ebon sky, darkness to light
Diamond stars, mosaic night
Bright lunar sphere of brilliant white
Floodlights a scene of will and might.
The Fiddler’s Cat, sips warm Bordeaux

The wonderful poems will make you smile
Easy is it to fall for all

A Hundred Springs
Some days I feel so damned old
Like my zest is starting to mold
Seems my feet are always cold
My golden years ran out of gold

Last January, winter lost it's chill
By May the summer sun had turned me brown
I watch the leaves late August, change at will
Time's speeding up or...

Heaven Sent - Tim Smith and Seren
Written by Tim Smith and Seren Roberts
Across the room I slowly walk
Hips swaying, smile in place
Sensually I use my body to talk
I heard I might find a poet here Part 3
swing, beauty, poetry,
"May I?" she asked motioning to my dog-eared notepad as a child might
asking for a cookie expecting to be told it would spoil her dinner
House On Memory Lane
swing, memory, sad,
Feeling nostalgic, I went back home
To a house on Memory Lane
A sentimental trip, through the years that have flown
To a three bedroom, small white, wood...
swing, inspirational, introspection, peace, sympathy,
Opened like a morning leaf
exposed beneath the moon,
Resting in the tentacles
of a clouded ink coccoon.
Wringing hands now rest at peace-
the solitude of night,
a lantern in...

Colors turning a kaleidoscopic deep and warm
A state of mind, that makes reality feel alive

So long did it take before you were to come into my life

Nobody observes her leaving her room
wearing just her nightdress and red felt carpet slippers
Shuffling silently she slips out of the front door onto the street
Of All I've Lost
Of all the things that I have lost
Perhaps what hurts the most
Is that I can no longer go
to where I once called home...
I cannot roam...
A Beautiful Day
swing, child, daughter, growing up,
it's a beautiful day!
"Let's go, Mama!" her cheer,
down the tall slide, no fear.
Twisting, bumping, "this is fun"
one more bend then it's done.
Queen of dance

From far they come and watch,
to see if they're her match.
How they wish for a chance,
to sway the queen of dance.
In awe they watch her...
swing, happiness, inspirational love, love,
Sometimes life brings us showers,
But showers bring us flowers
And flowers bring me joy.
Singing and dancing in the rain bring me joy.
But you bring me...
swing, beautiful, child, summer,
A ballerina butterfly, she’s gliding
sweetly through the meadow’s grass still fresh with dew.
She sees a stream, kicks off her shoes, and sliding
down from a rock,...
swing, imagery, nature,
Stormy winds swing canopies of trees
Swaying dark shadows upon my reverie
Glimmering through forest-green leaves
Sunlight filtered by cumulous clouds
As raindrops pitter-patter on sidewalk
