Buds and Buddies
my fluffy puppy with curly hair
wags the tail on his derriere  
he jumps on my lap in a slapstick scene
licking my face ‘till squeaky clean

his gitty kitty butter ball brother
is a spotted sibling by another mother
that chases red lights...Read More

Premium Member Feeling It



“I am feeling it.” He said.
He meant his age, and as I watched
I saw a vision of him…
Ribs broke away
from the cuttlefish bone of his breast
opening outward in a rueful grin.
I saw his heart stuttering over a word.
I watched his...Read More

Premium Member Rather Bleak Ending to A Wednesday
A cuttlefish swallowed my house the other day.
He ejected his inky black fluid and we could not get away.
The local newspaper came out and had a heyday.
Interviewing and photographing the monster that you may all say…
Was doing what comes natural...Read More

Premium Member Castaway Memories on Distant Shores
Over the horizon, 
on distant shores
lies my message in a bottle
cast askew on the beach
with other remnant memories
and hopes in tatters scattered
strewn among the drift wood debris
dead soldier memories lying face down
castaway sailor survivor sobs long gone,
in the debris fields...Read More

Tidelines
Tidelines

Where land meets sea will always be a special place for me,
Born by the coast, my early memories often seem to be,
Of happy hours beach-combing, adventure mixed with leisure,
As I searched the beach and tideline, for a host of hidden...Read More

Pick pocketing pineapples
Synchronised zephyrs are holidaying in giant zones. It is interesting to note that this experience is not an easy excursion. For such weight is waving and waving is not a noted duty for any passing shoal of cuttlefish appearing on...Read More

Grandma's Pets

My granda went away to sea
For many months on end
He'd travel on a fishing boat
With his brother and a friend

He used to write home regularly
And tell some quite tall tales
About being in a far-away place
When he was actually in...Read More

Cellotape a cornflake to a six inch singular cheese packet then swing under and over the metronome roundabout. And a coffee coloured synonymous character can be overlaid with biscuit coloured charm but lying down on an apple cake can be...Read More

Under the surface of things
If we have to see the fishes closer
and   immerse ourselves under the surface of things
I put on the wetsuit
The  diver's paraphernalia 
And I let myself go  to obscure distances
And think no more at the air, which...Read More

Pie of thought pleaseing pickiled pineapples
The cuttlefish are laughing today. Comedy came creating calm conical creations. A large cake came wading over the nine mile swamp. Why are you sat in a hexagonal formation? Dominance is derived from daring deeds. To which the five foot...Read More

catch in a net
A semi shriek of an atom bite should never be viewed as the submission of a rug. For rugs wear earplugs, and belts with chains. Very heavy locks can also be located in that type of wirey loops. Fabrics can...Read More

Kindly stick to digging pineapples in the future as magic dust particles can really only spring up in defense patterns. And is it really wise to deal cards in a high tide. Deliver not an oceanographic breeze to a tree...Read More

ABDICATION
It was a domestic pain,
when we came apart in boots and helmets.
Taking the shine away, moon gave up the fight
on lake, against the clouds, a sniper
intuitingly, started a homicidal blasting
to start the rains.
 
An ode to sepia needs scrutiny;

Love
My loveless wreck is a swarm to you
It covers me until the icing wind burns
Curling into flakes of demonic illness
I have never made love

I adore and yet I never have
Pushed hard with those splinters
Coating me like wood
Burned into years upon...Read More

Shimmering shaking silken sea
A  Sunny  Winters  day
Cool sun kisses skin.
Pastel coloured ocean
Shuddering salty sea
Pink apricot morning sky
Seaside meditation tape.
Rolling frothing waves
emerge at fast intervals
Driftwood on the shore
Gold sloping sand dune
Giant swirly starfish studs
Seagulls squawking high
Leopard jelly  sea slugs
Spiky ...Read More
