Saturday nights are for disco dance.
The band has a natural knack,
Musicians are on fire
Playing in liquor bars
We are all hopping
A jam session
What a beat!

Where I come from
It’s dark and quiet
Eleven months of the year
Then one fine day
Everything changes
All of a sudden
It’s bright and snowing
And I come to life
After a long hibernation
I love to see my old friend
Elf sitting on the shelf
Right next to...Read More

Premium Member Dance of Raindrops

Raindrops fall in a winter’s cold puddle,
With circular impressions, dancing on the surface
Bubbles float briefly, before they disappear
Moving dots for now, it hasn’t frozen yet today

A chance for the rain to be heard in a puddle
From a jumping dance across...Read More

Existential fear abandoned for the sake of delusion

Nuclear freeze in her heart of alchemy’s shivers 

Veiled shadows dancing to the echo of silence

Intemperance sounding choral confusion of fate 

Rosemary scents a bunch of renegade petals 

On her journey of lone...Read More

Your personal touch
Technology advanced, men losing reins
Identity fast fading,in our shrinking globe
Faster than we gain speed and control
We write in fonts some one designed.

Wish I, for a letter from that old sling bag
A fulfillment as I hear the postman’s bell
As the waiting...Read More

northern light
I take a deep breath
My lungs are burning
The air is like ice
Making my skin feel numb
like it is no part of me anymore
A last bit of warmth lies deep inside of me
But it is slowly fading away
The arctic sky above

Life is great. Life is grand.
Things are happening and she is bobbing to the music
Her feet are prancing.
Her heart is dancing.
How could things get better?
One phone call
Annihilates every bit of joy.
Gun violence.
She never expected it to reach her family.
But now...Read More

Youth, Time, Night Sky And Heaven's Blessed Voice

As I lay me down in lush verdant grass
Gazing into night sky as Heavens pass
Twinkling stars, to an old grievous soul speak
"Be of stout heart, not a mortal so weak"!

They grew up dancing at a time when people danced arm in arm
when dancing had a mystique
when people held hands, twirled together
and loved dancing cheek to cheek.

They met each other on the dance floor.

Dancing down Dalymple Way,
Ruefully I went stumbling,
Drunkenly I tried to rise,
Only to continue tumbling.

Finally coming to a stop,
Gradually rising to my feet,
Sobered by embarrassment,
Continued then along the street.

Despite the large orange flowering flame tree
That shaded my veranda, the summer heat was intense.
No amount of ice cold beer could quench my thirst.

A stone throw away was my lovely verdant wood.
It lured me towards a more comfortable place.

Dream of a Child
Her silky hairs were shiny gold
The graceful face innocently glow
Half closed eyes, celestial and soft
The half parted lips twinkle a smile.

Face mirroring images of the mind
Swimming in her own dreamy world         ...Read More

I Saw The Tree Sprites Dancing
Upon a wood-walk, evening
I saw the tree sprites dancing.
Lovely sprites, in fall dress;
whirling, twirling to the tune of the autumn winds 
and I couldn’t resist, I just had to dance with them.

Perhaps the others walking with me, didn’t notice
or maybe...Read More

Rising rays of warmth
Pampered buds in cradle
Snow beads of the mountain
Shedded tears of joy.

Bloomed flowers scented
Alluring fragrance to breeze
Dancing petals longed
For bea's to sip the nectar.

Made songs grow in heart
Myriad of dreams sprout
In the inner lake of...Read More

I love carnations,
Spice-scented blossoms,
Crinkling crinolines,
Miniature maids,
Daintily dancing.

White carnations,
White tinged with pink,
With some pure pink,
Some tipped with red.


Lay some

Whirling and dancing in limitless air,
One little, red leaf floated solitaire.
So sun-kissed, perky and full of grace;
Too soon it was far from its birthplace!

To the envy of leaves still on the trees,
It soared high o'er land, on autumn breeze!
Such heights...Read More

You tear yourself apart to fit the syllables.
You comb through Rhyme Zone for that certain word.
You think that now you have it all together.

Dark path
Lying in the predawn light
	underneath black empty sky
chill wind blowing across bare skin
	feeling a desperate need to flee

empty heart echoes the night
	desperate longing for what once was
only darkness found there in
	heavy pounding into the night

looking down nebulous path

Golden park that turns to evening dim,
