Premium Member My love she'd lent

    ~ MY LOVE SHE'D LENT ~

I followed her where'er she went
Lured onward by her fragrant scent

She clasped his hand, a handsome gent
How could she know my love she'd lent

I died one thousand deaths inside
Choked back my...Read More

Premium Member How can I tell her
I'm sure she is my true love
  We're clearly meant for one another
Never have I felt so young
  Never has anything felt so right

But how can I ever tell her?
  What on earth will she think of...Read More

Premium Member Into the Rainbow
The moment when the farmhouse hit the ground
my life in black and white was gone for good.
A technicolor country I had found,
a panning for the gold of Hollywood:
In glitter dusted gown of pink chiffon
a fairy floated in to break the...Read More

Premium Member WORLD'S TALLEST ELF
There once was a strange elf raised in North Pole
Who loved Christmas thrice more than his fishbowl
Far way too tall to excuse
Santa had to break the news
Time for Elf to surprise Dad in Seoul

Sunlight
Out my window I see the dawn
Pinkish hue with orange neon
Majestic spectrum playing like a drum
I can hear the call where the light comes from

Tears of joy stream down my face
Fall to ground like drops of rain
Rain clouds have taken...Read More

It's been four years since I've seen so much as an insignificant mountain creek. I've been overburdened with comfort, now frantic with nature withdrawals and having to settle for photos found on Google Images: emerald pine trees, blue jays on...Read More

MONGOLOPHOBIA AND THE EASTERN HORDE
Neither a fable, 
Nor a tale, 
This is a fact,
A story to tell,
To everyone, female and male.
To generations, younger and frail.

About a threat, a monster from the East,
That struck the world like a beast,
Attacked Europe by cold and mist,
Oceans of...Read More

Invisible
A woman, blinded by disease,
Wrote poetry and then,
Inspired to write a novel,
Picked up paper and a pen.

Elastic bands across the pages
Held the pen in place.
With more than twenty pages done,
Not once did she erase.

Her son paid her a visit
And she...Read More

A note of thanks
As winter creeps upon us
darkness caves in on us easily;
Why in haste like Mary in the gospel?
to break the news about the promise foretold.

A source of joy, a defining experience,
that makes us whole again;
with the Word made flesh
Incarnation, the mystery...Read More

An Experiment Gone Wrong
Forgive me for not coming up to see you my dear.
I do not want you to see me as I now appear.
Out of pure necessity, I have to cover my head.
You may have a heart attack, and drop dead.
I gave...Read More

Premium Member Precipice of a Lost Innocence
I am standing outside my bedroom, on the precipice of lost innocence.
Wide eyed, and barefoot on cold hardwood.
Someone is hammering on our front door.
My father, looking a bit annoyed, shuffles anxiously down the stairs.
Tussled hair, a bewildered vein bulging in...Read More

Your familiar slience
That sudden insecurity that comes hand in hand with your silence,
That ever familiar silence,
The silence of you thinking of the easiest way to let me down...
And break my heart...
Again.

I think the marks I bare of last times disappointment,
 Has made...Read More

Her Daddy is Gone
Coming home from work, And receiving a call from mom,
I have some bad news she said, I'm sorry, but Darcy's gone.
Tears fill my eyes, and I don't know what to say,
I have to break the news to our daughter,
That her...Read More

A PERSON WHO SEEMS SO SAD
MUST HAVE BEEN HURT VERY BAD

TODAY IT ISN'T SO
The children clustered 'round him drawn like bees to nectaries, 
for pleasant were his stories and they felt so much at ease. 
His mates though thought them nuisances and should be chased away; 
the stranger stated, "Leave us and become...Read More
