Rainbow gravy on mashed potatoes
Invented by angel only knows.
It’s on my plate, and it truly glows.
Formed into trees, and two distinct toes.

Cousin loved it, she ate her’s and Joe’s.

Rednecks and hillbillies having a war.
They fought and they spit and both were so sore.
It got bloody. There was much ugly gore.
We scratched and we bit just like the folk lore.

Cousin found gold and announced it to four.

Pigeon’s red lollipop on a wet window sill
I gave it big licks until I had gobbled my fill
Some naysayers warned it might make me ill
Did you see it drop from the pigeon’s bill?

I did, lied my dishonest cousin Jill.

Premium Member the beauty of her scars
"everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it." - Confucious

all she could see were her scars-
painted perfectly upon her chest like
a reverie flowing to her sadness
scars are proof of pain and pain is
proof of sorrow,
no sorrow could compare...Read More

From my smartphone
fear rings
knock, rattle, hospital hospice sounds
We connect. 
Tonight all I can think about is your voice, Jean.
The last call.

on Dakota land 
snow and deep deep holes

Darling of the sea darting in and out of the reefs with passion and glee.
Laughing at dangers, daring oily sharks to try and capture or eat her.

Old men smile like children,
their faces snapshots of my son
as a boy, a teenager, a man.

I feel like a visitor
in a timeless kindergarten.
Any mother could be my mother
or daughter,
depending upon a certain glance.

A cat warming itself in the sun

The sadness a Liberian girl wears

She lives in her father land

But beautifully and constantly 
abused by the society 

Sadness sleeps in one hand while darkness relaxes in another 

When she wears a mini skirt, 
evil men get prepare to penetrate
her pretty legs 

She lives in...Read More

Premium Member Burnt to a Crisp

burnt to a crisp -
but the town
is famous for
its restoration,
pets be gone -
eight in all;
one sits on his lap,
the family’s source
of hope,
lifting the community’s spirits -
by the light of Christ,
he’s the source.

the Grinch
became educated —
there was more
than the feast,

Has a cousin named Myrtle.
His name; Steven Q. Urkel.
He's an Einstein genius.
An inventor of  uniqueness.
Has humility and meekness.
Laura Winslow is his weakness.
Alter-ego Stefan.
Who laddies say, "he's got it going on."
Best friends Eddie and Waldo-Geraldo-Faldo.
Father figure Carl, he's a cop.

Color me Douglas Fir Green;
I feel so feathery-branched.
My constitution is supreme;
My core competes with oaks.

I was built to last and stand tall;
I cannot say as well of cousin spruce.
Taken for granted; 
the human species, mows me down;
I become boxes for...Read More

No Christ In Christmas
Christmas Day in our house
Started serene
Everything orderly
Perfect and pristine
Guests were all greeted
As if best friends
Little did they realise
This would soon come to an end
The spread upon the table
A glorious feast indeed
All looked scrumptious
On which an army could feed
Then there was...Read More
