Into those full chocolate lips that once spoke sweet nothings into my ears.

A Pennine day; a moor in mid-summer.
A moody affair, always on edge.
For an hour agreeable, even delightful.
The sky, perfect with clear blue infinity.
And balm breeze brings the ling perfume.
Hidden grouse loudly chuckle warnings:
Chut chut chut chut. Go away go away.

The Best of Fathers
What makes Jehovah the best of fathers?
He carries us as a loving mother
carries his newborn child.
He knows us intimately
and cares for us unwaveringly.

He welcomes our expressions in prayer
responding with utmost wisdom
out of deep compassion.
He discerns the meaning behind our words,

I drown you in wine, the goddamn squatter

like a nude drowned man in see-through water,
the memory is seen… That very sunny

If I have the time this hour,
I'd be cradled in your loving arms,
Safe from things that'll bring me harm,
Next I'd take a relaxing shower.

Then I'd get ready to start my day,
and get the kids up and ready for school.

an unsolved case

many daffodils along the path
while a snail is after some food

by the coming of April showers
the beauty of flowers are fresh

Premium Member Time Respires

Gasping ...
The year drew in
Months, weeks and days, anew -
Filled its lungs with the breaths of life,
Hope, promise and endeavor coursed its veins,
Feeding want, deed and wisdom, now ...
It exhales lost shadows,
Weeps and expires ...
Gasping.

Bully made fun. At first it was play.
