 Pushing away the long dawn 
 Waiting  patiently to fall asleep 
 While the restless body lying freely on the cold floor 
 Eyes are wide awake in a lightless room

Under Love's Green Canopy
Under Love's Green Canopy

Love’s golden thread 
binds my heart to yours;
and in beautiful silence,
we lie breathless
in the dark of early morning, 
drifting through fathomless
depths of pure, 
brown-sugared ecstasy,
inhaling the sweet fragrance
of shared delights. 

Nectar-dipped kisses
lingering on the 
nape of my...Read More

Premium Member Looking Back At Earth - BC
In my dreamy dream I am floating, defying gravity,
like a buoyant cloud I drift up and around the moon;
I sail and hover, suspended, just hanging,
and then, I am wandering the surface of the moon;
looking back at Earth, I shed a...Read More

I pull you in close to me,
the curve of your body,
rests on my knee,

Your long slender limb,
so beautiful,
adorned in jewelry,

I run my fingers, 
along your curves,
the moment it besieges me,

The golden brown colors,
that adorn your fretboard,
takes me to the right...Read More

Hidden battle
Hidden Battle  

Explosives echoed in the silence of his room, 
Each one signalling his imminent doom, 
War had long ceased, yet it still lingered in his head, 
His body had healed, yet it was filled with dread. 

Like soldiers...Read More

Cherish Yours
My life has become bald as your head,
Nothing better grows on it, not even a single hair,
Visions had always been clear, now they seem blur,
I know my behavior is rampant, yes that makes it rare,
I say Cherish Yours

Love from heart
The sun bring the day.
The moon bring the night.
My love you brought me happiness and life.
How can i exist without you by my side.
You are my legs,
How can i walk without you.

How can i see without you.

My refuge
With a cup of salt
I malt
Take a spoonful of coffee
And mix it sternly
With some hot milk mixed within
Sugar cube to sweeten the lot
Hot or cold
Coffee is coffee
Sour or sweet
Toffee is toffee
A cup too many
Once I drink it up...Read More

Craving took over 
Twisted her neck like a soda cap 
The woods were silent 
All you heard was the snap 

Dragged her body 
Through the remains of the party 
She was a lonely girl 
Drank herself numb with Bacardi

Pondering a Winter Dusk
I ride the bus...

Tilt a bit, balance-
ponder later. Yolk yellow 
and sky blue, chalk

grey paint. Steel
rectangles; winding parallel 
lines. Circles- Eternal.

Toothed horizons-
golden rose shaped sunset
tauten, its nectar 

steeps; blushes. Inks gnarled
columns of trees, dusky, their
limbs webbed crosses

open to royal skies...Read More

"In my battered whelms;
Those profiles which I never win;
My healing has just begun,

they begin...

The winter storms;
often remind me of my birth
my birth when I was born

in the cold months of January...

there was I buried out of my mother's womb;

Now not...Read More

The first time of prayer

Premium Member Legend of Ogopogo
Chilled by cold Canadian air
Lake Okanagan’s waters run deep
And so does its Ogopogo
A legend the centuries keep

Native Americans feared it
Animal sacrifices were made
Before they boarded their canoes
And set out to traverse the lake

Campfire stories natives told
Of the monster “Snake in...Read More

True terror taps
on my bedroom window.
I know that I have
no choice
but for a while I

the air becoming
more and more stale
as my breathes become
deeper. And quicker.
The tapping is music and
rhythmic and present and
all in time with the frantic
beating of...Read More

The misty, ocean breeze 
blows against my body,
blowing my hair back.

My feet sink into the

water, as i watch the dolphins
