Premium Member The Hourglass Wears Wings
In shadow 'neath the shining of a soul 
a heart trembles
for her lost 
control.
Hope

in Him
who forgives
trespass and sin
as flight with Mercy’s angel does...

Dust
Dust

everywhere
It lands on tables and under your bed
It also clings to your computer screen
on clothes it goes
and of course
up your
nose

Blue 
vision
Dipping toes
feel the softness
The warm breeze of the summer joys tempts me
Crystallized sand like feathers on the toes
Gold in my eyes
Breathe taking
and pure
bliss

Flair

of ink

spilling sweet

cloudbursts of thought

flare billows of young imagination -

daydreamers ride the mind of story-time

using wands of

enchantment

penning 

worlds

Premium Member The Field At Sunset
Here is a flowered field laid before me.
So vast and green,
it shimmers
like the
sea.
This
sea of
pretty green
swims in my eyes.
I’m drowning in sunset’s last yellow rays.

Sept. 28,...

Premium Member Spill your Ink
Spill
your ink
on blank page.
Express your rage.
Suppression only leads to mental pain.
Without catharsis, art is trapped in cage.
Trauma will stain,
as you age.
Gain your
stage.
Sage
soul smiles.
It's worthwhile
to tame...

As beneath the salty cold brine of tears
silence floats, whilst I’m coloring kohl rain

Premium Member Agates
My
poet’s 
life (not known
then as such) flowed
along life’s swift course
rippling with glee and roaming youth’s chasms.

It then streamed relentlessly to the Now.
I polish agates

Seeds
Planted
Then nurtured
See how they’ve grown
Into pretty pansies for my garden

How I love to see their smiling faces
In lovely shades
Of purple

My borders
Bringing colour

Hands
mixing
neutral shades
as brushstrokes form
etches of life’s vignettes in washed-out tones,
Reflecting grim  shadows doused by night’s  ash
Where black  white hints
Trail along
Fingers
Stained.
Grief
In oil
Expressing

Into art,
Casting myself,
I am focused with no destination.

Premium Member The Black Tear Version Two
Mascara black tear fell as she looked on
the silent man
stretched lifeless
in a 
cask
full
suit he
loved for years.
Pale lips smiling.
She will never feel those soft lips again.

Mrs. Hill, who had chastised the children
For laughing so
Rowdily

They were
Kind children
Who gave from their
Hearts, these brilliant wishes for happiness

Swinging Stars
What
is the
neon mauve
moon without trails
of twinkling twilight stars that swing in skies?
Perhaps, memories are just fluorescent
leaves that sing in
lifeline-ink
of the
past,
stained
with pearl-
pastels of
present seconds, 
pulsating heartbeats...

You
mirror

mocking the sorrow I sing in silence

of piercing walls
