Translated: small package

Four legs, four paws, big jaws, 
fancy ears and a long tail. 
My dog is from the pound. 
What did I expect?

He is six foot at the shoulder, 
Reads books, on Saturday nights. 
But, sadly he won’t...Read More

Premium Member I Feel So Small
Deer stroll in mists that disguise the ridges
Creating a heavenly peace that soothes
This feels spiritual, not religious
And the heart does go where the spirit moves

A bald eagle glides across naked limbs
Tries to discover a new home in them
The soft feel...Read More

No practice needed
Terry Pratchett said, the best fun alone is writting
Agreed, I find completing stunning poems exciting
When thunder grows and lightning shocks the sky
It provides the inspiration for what I've got to write
Not the type to stay inside if anything's happening
But on...Read More

 Lioness mother
 Creeps into the killing fields
 She's got cubs to feed
 Her hunger unslakable
 And she'll bring home the bacon

Premium Member About the 1500's
Most people got married in June because
They took their yearly bath in May
Body odor was the reason
Of the flowers in a bouquet

A big tub of hot water was used
For a bath, so that's not complex 
The males's right was to...Read More

Mr Cliché was known for sleeping in his socks,
Where, he dreamt of thinking outside the box.
For breakfast as always he ate rather plain
Just porridge as he never went against the grain. 
Sometimes when dressing he would mumble and tut,
Making sure,...Read More

Every single day I do the same stuff
I am shaken early in the morning
My days start already boring and rough
In the traffic, I listen to the honk horning
I want to stop and yell: Enough!
Oh, my feelings, my brain, it...Read More

For this Turk Turku is a 1-horse
city but he has got to have horse
sense. He will not be as happy as a peacock in Turkey.

After a hard day at work I come home
Hear my boy rapping the words to his headphones
Every bleep comes another bleep
As he keeps dancing to the beat
Come upstairs and barge through the door
Say to him, "Boy whatcha listenin' to that...Read More

The Quintessential Parent Trap
I created you
the angelic, and the impish 
with my proud and selfless
love for you.
I enthusiastically ate for two
the sweet, the sour,
the salty, ravenous cravings.

hello nausea and inexplicable dreams.
Laboring for hours
endless pain, draining my...Read More

poet talking tough

we continue doing nothing
