Each a beauty in every way.
One fair it is told with hair of pure gold,
Eyes blue as the sky in May.

The other brunette, the lovely Collette,
With eyes a deep, warm brown,
Two beautiful girls...Read More

The Sneaky Thunderstorm
The approaching rainstorm,
Rolls across darkened skies;
Tries to hide in the clouds;
It will not have success.
It happens too often;
Everyone knows its goal.

It shakes the Earth and 
terrifies the kids;
“boom…boom…ba bang… boom;”
Angels bowling, huh?
Do I look stupid?

Everyone knows
Angels don’t bowl;
Soccer’s their game...Read More

To love is to be romantic,
From Gay Paris to the Antarctic,
Without romance there is no love,
Watery, lukewarm, a sort of!
Never take your partner for granted,
Or distance allow you to be parted,
For these love affairs are risky
Have your love near, and...Read More

Porch is hilariously messy
Anyone else would be ashamed to live here. I am amused.
Vastly and proudly amused; it keeps away burglars, right?
And salesmen.

Green striped hose, red scooter, pink Barbie helmet,
Fluffy blanket, mean cat, selfish dog, dead mouse in two pieces.

there's a defining source
there's a defining source
in the small of my back
telling me to turn to new black --
the new black of knowing
and scare tactics of frowning
down on brown boys
bowling for white pins with black balls
-- big, heavy, black balls --
to the aristocrats...Read More

Mrs. Curry waddled down school corridors,
Frightening children escaped from class~ 
Oh,my!nSuch dangerous marauders!
As she walked, earthquake faults cracked the walls.
Good riddance to her Titanic,bowling ball breasts, 
Take those gazongers with you to your divine eternal rest.

Premium Member Can Crush A Bowling Ball

Never make fun of a grizzly bear's handicap
One bite can crush a bowling ball totally flat
Best keep your distance
Even if he's persistent
He's trying to lure you in to make you his snack

Rain has a dancing feel
It brings me night crawlers
Who swivel around on warm pavement
Creeping out the weak
Delighting me

Measuring my happiness 
Am I going to smack those mud puddles with pure joy
Or am I going to moan...Read More

Rivalrous family fun
Two touching lanes booked
Helped all with shoes and ball weight
Cheered good throws, soothed gutter rolls

Premium Member WARNED

Stealth it prowled
early in the morning
to not hear the warning
he closed his eyes
not to see the signs
when the clouds of darkness
wallowed in
he couldn’t slow their roar
or ease the quivering
the disruption
the devastation
the teeter tottering
like bowling pins
the tumbling down
of the rumbling chaotic...Read More

The Answer to Complaint Part 4
Nor Usman’s treasure-chest you own, Nor Ali’s empty bowl,
With spirits of such great forbears, What kinship has your soul?

You live disgraced, as having left the paths of Al-Quran.

Trying to steer a car on snow

How to do, for it cannot be done

The family is gathering for the holiday cheer
