The Compass
I was once a full-on novice surfing the waves,
Seas were rough and choppy here and there.
I could not bear the challenges I was going to face,
But you were by my side guiding me when and where.

The ocean was as sunless...Read More

Premium Member The Pulsating Rhythm of my Heart -----
Hungry and bleary-eyed
I lie on my bed late in the afternoon.
Rain pitter-patters on my window panes,
Thunder rumbles overhead.
A half darkness envelops the room.
I wish to sleep but repose eludes me.
An enigmatic discomfort prevails.
I ponder on my desperate ventures
to capture...Read More

Row upon row of long stemmed dandies,
Yellow trumpets set to blare,
'Neath them growing, little snowdrops,
Announcing spring is in the air.

Songbirds sing sweet melodies,
As on branches blossom grows,
Life anew, is now stirring
Spring arrives to steal the show.

Purple crocus greet the Sun,...Read More

Premium Member The Morning Lost

How I rued the morning lost,
For I slept late, till ten,
I love to watch the rising Sun,
But I had missed it then.

I like to rise with the birds,
To hear them greet the day.
But this morn I idled,
The hours just slipped...Read More

Northern Winter Night
Driving, bleary-eyed, down a winding state route,
no moon overhead to break-up the dark,
just clouds blocking out even the stars,
my headlights shine on white banks against the black.

Trees stark, barely visible on the edges,
wind swirls loose snow, snakes across the road,
gusts...Read More

Is it About That Time Already Again
One stormy evening dark and dreary-
I sat alone all bleary eyed and weary-
drinking my beer when what did I hear
but a rat-a-tap tapping at my door.
Away to the window I flew like a flash
pulled back the curtain and peeked through...Read More

Dark comedy makes light of war
Talk to me of War

And ask of me to comment ?

I would do an injustice to put my thought's into words

So I would rather refer you to

Or point you in the direction or ask you to watch 

A black comedy...Read More

Dance of the Commuter
Early morning, bleary-eyed
We’re a weaving coffee-carrying crowd
One more sip,  heads bowed
Oh Grief! That train horns loud! 
Sorry! Excuse me!
Opps…Shall we dance?
A frown turns round
Manners & Humour - it's sound

Put down your Bibles and Korans,

Class of 2017: The Little Rascals crew
It’s been four (long) years. Yes, long - to my dismay.
Some think it goes quickly; RUBBISH! I say.
When you have a child, the days will drag,
The season crawl, and the years can lag.

But onward we prevail, with our heads held...Read More

A Parody of Sir Philip Sidney's Sonnet 31 from Astrophel and Stella

How clumsily and with how red a face!
What! Dost thou trip and fall about the place
and pray thy folks sleep soundly,...Read More

coiled lies an oily snake
circling the rim of the cup
eschewing the softness of milk
the sweetness of sugar.
A black hole – waiting – beckoning
the bleary-eyed robot
leaving a scent trail
harsh, uncivilized,
psyche popping

Storm at Sea
CRASHING waves... SMASHING seas...
Bringing sailors to their knees.
As they struggle to save their lives
Hoping and praying, help arrives.

The stormy seas as dark as coal,
Preventing the sailors from reaching their goal.
Battered and bruised, but still they fight...
Staring ahead, into the dead...Read More

The winged god Zephyrus, handsome and graceful
gently flapped his wings, gliding across the meadows.
His eyes fell on naked youths splashing at play
in the sparkling water of a deep wide pool, sheltered  
by willow trees, where fragrant flowers bloomed.
He slowed...Read More

Screeched out your fury

Woke up this morning, looked at the clock

Bleary eyed, thought it read 5:23

Way too early... turned over and went back to sleep

Woke up again which seemed like 10 minutes later

The clock read 7:42

Thought for a moment in my stupor

Holy crap!...Read More

Black-blue and purple-gray, barred from florescent in amber we play
scratched across vinyl, we sway, arguments in amber we play.

the twenty-first centuries bruised gene pool is content in amber...Read More

Delusions of Evening
Evening sets with self-delusion
stirring the synapses
with a steaming 
cup of coffee.
A dimly lit oil lamp
shrouded in Saffron 
casts the room in an amber hue
where words meld like gold 
onto the page
		in an alchemic blaze.

Morning rises, dispelling dreams
out of every fold...Read More

Army in Me
The temptations of armor, sheilding me from aching breaths. Save me from battle.
A ruthless, lying war. Makes your face hurt and your temples burn.
The anxiety eating away pieces of sanity. Laying down to sleep searing in your own heat, and...Read More

If I had the choice to start over again

Or a stand-up like Norma Jean!

Unrequited Dreams
Once more, treading the boulevard of dreams
Only the sun's glint on the corroded surface gleams
Shangri La's gate no longer in the distance beams
Steamy, foggy haze around each mile marker streams
Grand plans, lofty designs are buried deep in impermeable seams

I am the bleary eyed bemoaner

like a sodden surly hobbit

Jack O' Lantern's Hallowed Eve
Jack O' Lantern jeers through 
molten screen
With fiery eyes and a fifth sense 
so keen
Masked goblins saunter in shadows 
Wily Jack swills jade folds with

Billowing ghosts in phosphorescent, 
satin mantles teem
Stolid Jack bathes in Hoary Frost's
