Premium Member squeezing blackbirds
blackbirds have gathered in your eyes
feeding on shadows of canyons in time
growing plump on imperfection-self doubt 
you must fight-hard and long with great resolve
because they're persistent as they are loud.

squeeze until your palms fill

A Chilly Rainy Afternoon

In the chill of the afternoon
the light rain steadily fell—
soaking the rich green field

Just as the rain tapered off 
to a slight mist, a flock of blackbirds
swooped down, ambushing
thirsty unaware frolicking worms

With the lapse of time, the...Read More

Premium Member I can see a blur
All I can see is a blur
As the visitor of grief returns
Tears fall on lined pages
As a pen tries to find words
I need you to come back
But, that won’t happen
I sit in a chair, shocked
But, feel like I am wandering

The face of Nature
Your hair,

Wild lavender dancing in the wind,
Throwing Scents of heaven into our life,

Your Eyes,
Streams of running water,

Tears that flow across the landscape,
and across our hearts,

Your lips,
From which the sounds of Blackbirds Sing,
Enchanting us into the mystery of now,

And your passion,
Volcanoes...Read More

Premium Member Ode to an Oak
O mighty one, O wooden king
you clutch the earth with strength that brings 
liquid life through stately veins
from a leafy heart the blackbirds sing. 

How generously your branches spread
to fan and shade this grassy bend
true stalwart oak, you rise so...Read More

Premium Member Shadows
In his last minutes of life, he closed his eyes
where shadows appeared like blackbirds
beneath the moonlight of lost thoughts
above the misty graveyard of his soul
Ghostly apparitions of sadness haunt an old mind

Past illusions of love

Whose faces are etched in the...Read More

Premium Member A SPRING DAY QD
My most special day’s in stunning spring
as anxious ‘mummy’ bird sounds a call
her tiny fledglings take to the wing
their maiden flight will always enthral!

Young blackbirds chirp, listen to them sing
as they rest on the stone garden wall
I observe the re-birth...Read More

"The Deconstructed Lilith"




Decomposing from a past
left forgotten and buried 
under the weakness of the first man banished

from 
Her Forest,

She rests, bound in the arms of angst 
eternally suspended, 
invisible and unheard

gagged, Her spirit waits 
and watches

Her time is near
to rise...Read More

To My Love Part 4 TBC
My post-mortem may bear the stroke of your hand, in your lap,
On your knees with a single tear so priceless
That may fall on my cold cheek with power to revive, resurrect.
But not this time, not this time.
My virility dissipated, my...Read More

Dawn hurls
New day springs;
Happy birthday

~~~~~~~~~


Thursday insights
Touch of good cheer;
A sense of peace

~~~~~~~~~


Birdsong here
On yard ledge;
Blackbirds acapella

~~~~~~~~~


Humid hot heat
August winds bestow;
Sauna dehydrates

~~~~~~~~~


By this balcony
Glimpses of night skyline;
Starry intervention

~~~~~~~~~


Music floats
Ecstatic permutations;
Heart in-sync

Joy in the breeze 
Hope greets love;
Peace exults

Was the maid really in the garden... 
And did a blackbird really peck her nose 
Or was she in the kings counting house... 
Taking off her clothes 

And do you really think the queen... 
Would be eating bread and honey...Read More

Premium Member MY MUSE ONCE SLEEPING IS AWAKE
No poems from my pen would flow
I was bereft, was feeling low
From poetry I had a break
my muse once sleeping is awake!

I sit and write with quill in hand
pen simple lines folk understand
Perhaps I lured her back with cake

Eating corn ahead of the masses

she has blackbirds on her arm
flying from scar to scar
covering the pain-in vain
singing blackword songs

tossed about tranquility
in the howling waves of time

lanterns in the mist
gems of scattered hope
drift to the abyss

tracking the past
Tracks stretch across
barren winter fields
yet their steel trace
like a snail's trail appears polished,
glinting in dying light,

stifling your breath,
towards a dark shed
doors creak
like a sprinter's graveled gasp.

However, birds don't sing 
above the stretched tram lines,
you cannot speak
in jolting cattle wagons,

screeching their...Read More

is again home to a family of ducks
floating quietly in the center, as if praying
