Premium Member Predictable
predictable rise
 who knows
deer in the road
traffic woes

blackened skies
amidst the hush
parting clouds
a dawning blush

weather forecast
rain or snow
either or
unpredictably so

what ever happens
inside this day
uncontrollably
we have no say

West Texas Christmas Eve
'Twas the night before Christmas,
And the sand was fair blowin'.
So old Santa set 'er down
To see where he was goin'.

I saw him in my headlights -
A forlorn lookin' old cuss.
His sleigh runners were buried,
And the reindeer in a fuss.

The short-horned grasshoppers are here.
Not a great morn to walk with the deer.
They came in a form
A gigantic swarm.
Taunting, laughing, ready to jeer.

Premium Member Passing Through Town
Is there any place as lonely
As a Lake Huron resort town
In the off-season of mid-November?
Sign outside the church reads	THANK YOU

Its steeple a record player needle
Set down on a warped sky
With Barry Manilow ballads
Hobbling from an A.M. station that’s all but...Read More

The Night Before Christmas By Edgar Allan Poe
On the night before Christmas, alone in my house, 
Sorrow gnawed at my soul, like a ravenous mouse.
Entombed in my blankets, I struggled to sleep,
Ready to snap if I counted more sheep.

I rose at the sound of scratching and creaking.
“Who’s...Read More

Premium Member TWAS THE NIGHT WHEN CHRISTMAS WENT WRONG

Twas the night before Christmas - came like a flash,
Mob of gingerbread reindeer prodding elves for cache.

The Clausman reigning, doling out orders this stint.
Lady of his, keeps his tongue supplied with peppermints.

'Twas the night before Christmas at the North Pole.
Santa paced to and fro contemplating his role.
Things were in disarray and Mz Claus was on his case,
Chiding him about working just one day a year was a disgrace!

Snowflakes, Legends of the Wolves
In a winter chorus, autumn’s rouge and sallow shed.
Their shuffle settles loamy dregs of timber lords.
As they await the hurling puff to haply brush the forest floor,
of what to grace their lot, they’ve lack. No praise up-whirls.

Watching Aldebaran
The sweeping lunar curve
Away, away with you

Going up the stairs
I, amidst brown frogs,
Turn into silver dew drops
Between
The bloody horns
of Taurus
Melting into the jet black sky

Dark fragrant stillness
Incinerates my bones
I am bleeding purple daemones
Like a holy mollusk from Tyre

Wrapped in bull...Read More

Premium Member Night Before Costmas
'Twas the night before Christmas, but I confess
That personally I couldn't care less:
The putative "birth of Christ"
Has become extremely highly priced.
Commercial interests rub their hands,
Anticipating big festive demands,
Whatever parents are giving their "kids",
Be sure it's costing them multi-quids,
"And what do...Read More

Deer Ruby,

Half closed eyes, celestial and soft
The half parted lips twinkle a smile.

Swimming in her own dreamy world         ...Read More

The Gun

On the wall above the fire place, 
Grandpa’s rifle still sits. 
I take it down now and then to clean, 
but put it back every time. 
That is where it belongs.

She danced upon a thimble mushroom near
A delicate faerie, and oh, so dear.
Her mood was pink, her gauzy clothes were blue.
Compassion was her constant, good and true.

Her gossamer wings were endearing
To humans she was never nearing
Her magical name was La’Manique,
