Premium Member Dragon Castle
In my castle, live dragons...yes, dragons; 
after all, they are humble beings
quite suitable for keeping the place 
warm in the winter months.
Oh don’t worry, my castle is completely stone;
fourteen-foot thick walls,  house my scaly brood.
It’s the only dragon-heated castle...Read More

Premium Member America

I see America in majestic mountain ranges, lush vegetation and sandy shores.
I see her in gold fields blending into deserts and the Rockies of her Southwest
or to her east –  melding with green rolling hills, woodlands and lovely lakes.

My Face, My Secrets
There’s one thing that bonds animal to man,
That unites the wild with the caged,
Those captivated within bondage and those roaming free; disengaged.
At a first wandering gaze or slinking inquisitive eye,
One may be misled in the assumption that this feature perhaps...Read More

su she
her brown skinned
body laying atop a
table top covered
by a white table
cloth but she is

naked yet dressed
as a buffet with 
delights to eat
placed like plates

my finger tips imitate
chop sticks to take
the taste of her now

Premium Member Oldies' Summer
Temperature predicted: 38 degrees,
Pavement scorching before mid-morning,
Government-issued sunscreen warning,
But many people choose to ignore that.

Summer brings on the cockroaches,
Plus, needless to say, abundant flies,
As the sun's heat radiates from the skies -
We dread this time as it approaches.

Premium Member A Night to Remember
It can't have been the scallops
Or the rump of Islay lamb,
Washed down with white Rioja
Followed by sweet meringue.
It wasn't the skate au poivre
Or smoked salmon canapes
Nor garlic stuffed green olives
Or the double chocolate glaze.
The ruby red barolo 
Is surely not...Read More

A Fantasy
If I close my eyes
I can be six feet tall instead of five
Slim and elegant, wealthy, too
Live in a grand house
With a harbour view
Have servants at my beck and call
I wouldn't have to work at all
Could talk on the telephone...Read More

I Never Danced the Tango
“I Never Danced The Tango”

I have more than a few
Regrets in life…

I wish I’d loved my children…
Much more,
Much longer,
Much stronger.

I would wish to be
Much wiser,
Much gentler,
Much more compassionate.

I have worked on my failings
With some success, 
And forgave myself
For what I...Read More

On the streets of lively Mumbai
Close to the sandy Juhu

And to relish the Indian Cuisine!

Premium Member One February Night
Limousine open top
Stars peeking through
Full moon
Holding hands

Tall white hat cuisine
Candles lit table set
Glasses filled with wine
Cloth napkins embroidered 

Diamond eyes golden hair
Long sexy dress sliced
Lips like red rubies 
Tantalizing and wanting

Heart shaped bed red petals 
Clothes off
Breakfast in bed

Stopped at an Oktoberfest
Just to catch the scene -
Big steins of beer, a German band,
Appropriate cuisine.

Some lederhosen wearers
Did compete at beanbag toss,
Then swigged their pilsners cheerfully
With every win or loss.

The port-a-potties waited
With a needed job to fill,
For after every jumbo...Read More

Premium Member dirty eggs
the cook with the dirty fingernails
breaks the yellow cap on the egg...
the intestines of the coffee machine
are impossible to clean-as far as I can see

they keep gurgling up from the grates
of rainy mid-week streets...Read More

A buzzing in the air
 black-winged hoverers
flit and fly across the kitchenette
 drawn in by the smell of tantalizing flavors.

They flattered me as an expert cook
Cuisine compliments with pride I took
Once cooked mutton biryani
Called close friends for company
At night in foodquake their stomachs shook.

She made gazpacho for real

He heated it for his meal

Always the rebel

Dancing on egg shell

Novel cuisine quite surreal

Abandoned Child
Your walk 
Through the wild urban path 
Under lampposts trees.
In vain you travel questioning 
The meanders of your grief.

The slimy paving 
Of a deserted gallery 
Echoes your steps of suffering 
On the silent columns 
Of a gothic front.

Nor a distant memory

And our future destiny.

When the final bell will sound 
To mark the end of education

And Karma was suspended while Mary Magdalene disrespected levitation

What We Eat
The vegans eat their vegetables,
The carnivores their meat.
The gluten-haters stay away
From foods containing wheat.

The carbohydrate shunners
Won’t eat pasta, cake or bread
But can eat a pound of bacon,
Not the healthiest, instead.

Organic fruits and veggies,
Plus organic milk and cheese
Are believed to lengthen...Read More
