What is the best time to die? 
A beautiful summer’s day 
or in the winter when it rains.
There is an untimely satisfaction 
that mourners - if there is any-
will be wet and die of the flu.
Sitting in the antechamber

He Dreams
He dreams of the carousel at the park
Excitement stirs, as only friend, First Bloom
Released like he, gambols on the boardwalk
Arabian, garden wild, hooves steel dark

Marvelous pals sport at sea and embark 
Surmount rings of parents, music, and reins
Unlimited awe in...Read More

The story of love

for a wife, he loved despite having many spouses.
A beautiful palace admired for its architecture

The Best Funeral Ever
We came clad in white suits, 
With crocodile skin made boots 
Alongside a funky dressed lady each, 
For bravery during the time of speech. 
To make us happy couples of four. 
They weren't our wives, wives what for?

Premium Member Poetry Saved My Soul
Poetry saved my soul
It was accidentally on purpose
I fell into it, and stayed seated

The teacher highly discouraged me
It was a graduate level course
He assured me I would flunk
And I did.

I loved it though
This course was the only course
I had taken...Read More

No more lost hats
It is all in the past now,
But there was a time,
When no hat in its right mind would want to be the one,
To sit upon my head,
As the chance of a place for life,
Not likely on this head, 
Because ...Read More

i didn't want to close your eyes
My beautiful furry friend,
I didn't want to close your eyes,
I held you tightly,
as the moment arrived.
Fighting back my tears,
I tried to stay calm,
kept telling you I loved you,
so not to cause you alarm.

I called you Holly,
you were so sweet,

Loud voices
Rowdy minds
I get so afraid when I see them fight
Will I exercise?
Tomorrow,I will open a bag of rice
And call some wise men to show me the Eastern star
Which will lead us to afar
That's how must punish these boys.

Still communicating

In the moments to come

Going deep in our souls

in all this craziness
to check on it a gut hunch
his phone just went to message.

He gasped his greeting,
