Sowing a seed to make me bleed

Fear is a laden earthen farmer
Dirty is the solemn stain path
Filthy plummet plans of wrath
You break in me a spirit charmer
Sowing seeds of destructive aftermath
Winds of fear slowing ongoing
Sowing a seed you make me...Read More

Orange Blonde
Tech references aligned with the toetapping movements
Who is the secret gabber she pines to hear more from
Who crinkles the toes
Pasty white except for the summer's flush of pink and wear
A city oblivious
And she as well
Making this hush cellular moment special...Read More

Another Heart Break in My Collection
Well another heart break to add to the collection,
This one hurts just as bad to my recollection,

We had a nice little chapter to add to my book,
One i will glance upon with a happy look,

It brings tears to my eyes...Read More

One Brick At A Time

The boy shimmied like a determined squirrel 
upward stretching reaching 
for the ascending bricks of the chimney flue.

one brick at a time
one foot snugly ensconced 
in its leveraged place
and then another toe-hold there
as he sat atop...Read More

God Kept Me
Author Dana Redricks
September 24, 2019

The enemy my take my
things but I have something
much valuable than
silver or gold
It's something eternal
everlasting life in Jesus
Though the things in this
world may pass away
My treasure is in my 
Heavenly home where thieves

Premium Member - Walnut Tree -

The old walnut tree in the meadow weep
Time had arrived her strains in sorrow steep

Echoes of a nameless and powerful storm break in
I feel shivers on my bare skin

I would like to touch and hug it, before it dies

Premium Member First Day of September
He has cold, grey, crisply creased trousers,
a shirt stitched with a blah motto 
and a bang-on-brand sweater.
A fixed smile almost lights
his small, pensive face.
The school bell rings.
Tears chase me.
He turns.

In the UK, school starts back from summer break in the...Read More

‘Send in the next patient please,
and make it quick before I sneeze’,
asked the Doctor, if you will,
as he was almost always ill.

His first patient was Arthur Lock,
and he said ‘you know what doc,
I don’t think you’re all that well,

sun rays settle skies
prism shelters diversity -
kids breaking hard bricks

wind spreads gentle seeds
prayer evokes mute silence -
too many lost souls

rain drops whet dry soil
scope scoops whirlpools of dry tears -
god should know better

earth circles tailspins
faith plants pinpoints of respite -

Premium Member SACRIFICE
For you I drown in oceans of sorrow 
Again and again 
Swallowing pain
Treading the dead blues 
Watching lifeless hues
Sinking to where tears coagulate
Where everything is too too late
Even for weeping 

For you I peel compassion’s skin
Seek hidden ways 
Unwritten days

Premium Member Oh Man I have Heard of Des Moines
You are moving to a big city?
You will be murdered before you get out of your car
Thugs will take your purse and use your I-phone
Rapists will break in at night and maybe kill you
What big city is it?
Des Moines

10 Seconds After the mental storm
There was not a break in the clouds,
there was no sky, there was no hope.
the lowest region and the darkest.
the farthest from the sky.

But then...As if by magic,
On a fine sunny day, all the rats left the ship.
It was like...Read More

The Heart In The Music Box
I sit upon the white surface beneath an empty sky.
It's the same one I've seen.
The world I'm in,it always seems to change.
But unlike yours,it's never spinning.
What lingers beyond the glass walls beside me?
Where do you go when you walk out...Read More

I'll Rise

A leaf, I sail dream on your life, the stream,
till I reach the sea, your touch I’ll retain.  
If you go feral in flood, drown my dream,
I’ll save my heart, won’t let it break in pain.
On flow of passion...Read More

What It Is
That moment when alone meets loneliness 
From my mind to my heart it goes
Churning in me a deep hopelessness
Something larger than a feeling 
But smaller than what I’m worth to you 
There’s a break in your love 
Maybe it’s gone...Read More

It grew up to develop like a hyacinth 
With pure water and no huge mud

Sensible Advice I Suppose
I hate parking in supermarket car parks,
with scrapes and dents, or scratches common place.
They’re a request to join demolition derby, 
and some of the parking is a damn disgrace.

To find a parking space at times is like gold,
and even when...Read More

Marianne laughs, she's happy
sitting under the magnolia tree 
in Saint Anton's Garden
alone, in Venus's bower
waiting for no one in particular
as the shadows of leaves 
dance across her face.
Her lips break in a smile,
Runs her hands through her locks,

Premium Member Encouraging A Smile

An aura accentuates your life,
your presence has a magic effect.
And your wit's sharper than blade or knife,
never dulling from age or neglect.

You share life's gleanings with one and all
subtle truths you offer up with pride.
And lift me should I stumble...Read More

Pocket Frown
I have this pocket frown

Where things head quickly South

Over my silly grin
Where it helps to rearrange

Had some friends
Advise me to go
Said I been acting strange

But then, I said alright
Signed into the group
For councelling night

The faces of dismay
Eyes with blank stare

Mid-Day Break-In

Was just about noon
Normal sort a day
Told someone new
To come our way
Suspected not a thing
Blind to the more
Had a good dead-bolt
Lock'n my door

I don't sparkle much
Nothing to draw near
I ain't real fancy
So it would appear
I had nothing to fear
I...Read More

Jonquils, whispering in icy shadows,
Argue with January’s chill
Needling her about her coldness.
Upstart prisoners plotting a breakout
Always alert to a break in her façade
Resist complacency’s weakness
Yearn to mimic the sun’s majesty.
