Premium Member A Bird In The Hand
Stood upon a shore of sand,
sparrow held within two hands.
If this tiny life should be,
no one knows but God and me.

Walked a lonely street at night,
underneath a lamp of light.
Wandered far away from home,
where the painted ladies roam.

Beheld an Angel...Read More

I was so warm in your embrace , side
By side not a care in the world just you 
And me, king size bed, guy and girl

But when I awoke your side of the bed

One cool spring morning my husband opened the front door,
And he saw a little bird shivering on the porch floor.
The poor thing was just a tiny little bird.
When he saw it, his compassion was stirred.

He scooped the young bird into...Read More

Having Fun With Idioms
I want to tell some
things that will
Describe sayings
with fun and thrill
Here's the ones I
can remember
Stuck inside my mind
forever

The early bird gets
the worm
A breakfast food
that likes to squirm

A bird in the hand
is worth two in the
bush
Hold it gently or it
will squoosh

Lunch with a friend


On the topic of dating and settling he said,
ninety percent right - is good you know...
Oh really, and then I wondered,
why is it he's still alone?

Then I got to thinking a lot
how it is that a man really thinks...

Metaphor Remix
A language with so many sides
makes it hard to decide
which words I should use.
I get so confused!

Don’t throw out the baby with spilled milk?
Turn a sow’s ear into a purse of silk?
That bridge has sailed or burned, I’m told,
It seems...Read More

A Bird in the Hand
Adam and Eve had fell out with God,
By scrumping from his tree.
He’d chased them out in punishment,
So now they both were free.

They said farewell to all their friends,
They waved the snake goodbye.
Then newly clothed they wandered off,
A different life to...Read More

To 'ride on somebody's coat tails'
Is the most dangerous thing you can do
'Keep a stiff upper lip' is another cliché
Mine's not stiff, how about you?

'One good turn deserves another'
Turns my stomach if you must ask
'There's no fool like an old...Read More

A Bird In The Hand
A Bird in the hand

From my childhood
 Sweet memories
I remember holding the sparrow so tight
It heart just beats so hard and so fast
 I became more curious. As I look into
His small beady eyes;

I smile, he chirp and whines, begging...Read More

and your grip was as firm as resolve,
but she promised you things that a good woman brings
so you grasped the illusion of love.

Somebody told me that cliches are dead

Can I say "to know me is to love me"

Jealousy, greed, or something in between.

Just Because
Such a surprise, a dozen red roses,
what did I do? What did I say?
Is it my birthday?

For no reason at all, 
he gave them to me,
eyes full of tears, I could not see.

I ask him why,
what did he do?
He said,...Read More

Adages
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
But man is slaved to fate,
No fun or spontaneity
Unless you speculate

You can’t keep a good man down
The candle’s sturdy wick,
Yet alcohol and ageing
Seems to do the trick.
