Premium Member Bora, Bora
On the isle of Bora Bora
Ancient are the crafts that lie there.
White beaches beckon those who linger
and those who taste the salty air.

I met a girl there on that island.
Later she became my wife.
Now aged and wrinkled yet still a...Read More

Love, Learn, Lose
The Ls are all mixed in together. You love. You lose. And you learn. Like the stages of grief, they intertwine and flow together. But you will always go through them all. While you learn who your partner is and...Read More

A brand new car is what I love,
Love the body, the new car smell,
So to local luxury garage I drove,
that’s where I met lovely Shantelle!

Bright blue was the colour in mind,
A four wheel drive good for snow,
For my golf kit,...Read More

She Named Him Lucky
As I was driving home one day
    a car pulled out quite quick.
Realizing what they'd done
    I instantly was sick.
Where they had stopped, a cardboard box
    did suddenly appear,
And sticking out...Read More

Premium Member I Know I am Being Witchy
I know I am being witchy
My glare is strong angry even
But do I stop?

I am not ready
To get over this bad mood
Holding on to it
For silly reasons

My husband asks if I want anything in the store
Just to be able to...Read More

Not a grain of urgency did he have

the old soviet union
The old soviet-union 

It must have been winter when the old tank skip
Sailed through the Dardanelles into the Black sea
Which was full of ice flakes.

The ship was loading oil in a town I have forgotten
The name of, but I do...Read More

Premium Member If You Want to Give me a Car
If you want to give me a car
make it out of chrome
give it silver spinners
with psychedelic trims

Christmas lights on the floor boards
and Tinkerbell floor mats
A fire truck siren would be perfect
Thank you in advance.

Married life was easy and I dearly loved my wife
We thought about the next step we would take
She brought up having children, and adding to our life
We never thought could be a huge mistake :)

I grabbed my gear, laced up my boots,
And threw spit shine on the leather.
Rifle slung and bag in hand with the usual friendly banter
I had yet to reach my ride
As the mic began to...Read More

from Russia with love
From Russia with love

Russia is a strange and great country, not quite in Europe
and not quite Eastern, they react to mayhem but seldom
intimate it; for those who are history less they won
The brutal war of 1940 and 1945 by breaking...Read More

~~A Unique Wedding Ring~~

BRIDES have wedding rings so lovely,
in all colors, some with precious stones,
But you may not have mine, it's too

BRIDES really are their husband's sunshine,
in dresses traditional or new.
But I was married wearing a raincoat,
Love makes the vows,...Read More

Those Impalas runs as shuttles car
Racing the mustangs through forest trees

Cobra shelby's viper dodge not trust
Racing metal objects within the breeze

Premium Member A place for morose
It’s time to put aside my pen and pout awhile.
Forty years of dreams squashed like a beer can
under the wheel of a wild vintage car.

It’s time to sulk, to bathe myself in self-hatred.
Brooding on my past failures to create,

My Worth
My worth is not in what I own -
In real estate, or company,
Big car or boat, prized jewelry,
Investments that have grown.

My worth is not in what I do -
The job I work, or what I’m paid
Awards, promotions, deals I’ve made;

Hand written cardboard signs
Held up by soiled hands
Asking for food, for change.
New to the game and still clean
Rookie looking like
He just went out for a walk
Stood curbside
Taking tips from the veteran.
His anguish ridden face
Spoke volumes.
No huddle necessary
Just teamwork setting up...Read More
