New and Reused…Wrappings

blue, green and red, 
yellow and gold together, with bells. 
I dream about all the holidays, 
that have passed by, 
since you left. 

They have been good, 
and bad, and hard and full.
Many were also empty. 
Some were...Read More

Premium Member COLORIZED - -
If the color blue was sad
Would it be black?
If the black lost it’s color
Would it be white?
If white married lavender purple
Would it too, be blue?
What about brown and yellow
What’s procreations due, would the children be orange
For what’s at stake;
The color...Read More

Premium Member Prophecy


The Bee sleeps Her secrets
In honey 
She sleeps Her dreams 
a honeycomb 
of secret lives
gone wild
in a lost 
forest of trees
in mirrors' reflections
She scries
a prophesier
where She 
fluttering REM 
walks long roads home
wandering wondering
in the Amygdala Catacombs

Looking at the cat, the cat looking at him, I’ll have less of your lip

Where it is warm with love to create our own story
Watching the snow sparkle through the window
In our own refuge with a seat to a beautiful show

The Evergreen Tree

Upon the tree I set my sight
And see to my delight
With head tilted up
And hand shading eyes
In the boughs
Sagging from the snow
Birds of various colors 
Perched on the branches
Highlighted against the green
Under blue skies
And I am elated to...Read More

Premium Member Skyward Lark, Moon, Trees, Hollander
In blue tinged glow of lustrous night,
Hollander watches bird in flight.
In breathless, quiet, shadowy gloom,
Trees are restless, night's abloom!

Hollander, where has gone the sun
In which you had so much fun?
And when evening's come, and shadows fall,
You stand and listen to...Read More

Any Friday at 6-30 PM prose-poem

I'm playing seafaring games on the marble table,
sketching between the blue striations of the stone, 
a slab that resembles an ocean to my young mind.
I draw armadas and stick figure Spaniards,
foes that fall into shark-infested waters. Cannons roar silently.

Dragon Misunderstanding
Dragon, on a little trip 
to visit friends,  let it slip that,
we’d gotten him a pup and 
he had named it, Mr. Mup.
Now the neighborhood dragon-kind, 
In front of our house, formed a line.
They wanted pups of their own;...Read More

Empty footprints in the snow, leave me wishing you are here
The miles feel so far right now, as you are not near
Cold air nips my face, as gray skies lay so far away

For the ships and poor sailors out at sea
Ever on duty till the break of day

Helping poor sailors escape and be free
Till the sun burns the shadows masking the light
The lighthouse unlocks the door to...Read More

He put his thumb in the dike
 hoping everyone would see
how brave and courageously he saved the day
 but in his lack of guilt
it was he, who hammered the spike
 that would break the dam and make the waves....Read More

the deepest part of my heart has a key,
gulping and squeezed, with precious tears,
fears frozen with sweet memories, loving
cup that overflows — a blue-blue fountain
strumming in a garden with singing trees.

in four different directions,...Read More

Kiss My Donkey

Slightly above my consciousness
 I dream and tangent followed by unsure tease 
Cleft between the sadness

Beyond the purple vision

Sea Turtles and Death
I imagine death should be like
A gentle Great Barrier Reef sea turtle
Diving into azure clear water
Then islands of souls
Of bleached white coral
Then an awful, awful descent down
The bottom of the sea
Towards the blue coral forest
Now a big shiny black fish
Is...Read More

Not stuffed animals but real ones who roar and have long hair

Was it not God who created man and said go forth and multiply and now we
have over populated this beautiful mother earth, who cries in her distress as

Jumping with joy the heart knew what to do.
She had met her match and she was insanely glad.
She followed him around until he was rather blue.
Given a stalker label, for she was crazily bad.

No bougainvillea here,
This white-washed shore 
Knows no such blossom.
What blooms next stormy seas
In western outposts far removed,
Unknown to sun-soft living ?
When silken purple drapes
The open sky, and folds of grey
And pastel blue hang mingled,
Dark-mirrored in the land below,
The daily reckoning...Read More
