Premium Member Awful War
Killed by Enemies
Legs blown off sometimes
Exploding Mine Field
Morphine helps little
Eyes close for last time

Buddies are sad
Morale goes down
Honored by taps
Flag draped coffin

Sad mothers
Sad fathers
Bugle dirge

magical white stuff
showing us winter
slipping and sliding
land on eyelashes
swirling and twirling

hanker to make
an ice igloo
snowballs waiting
snowman ready

A CHILD LOST FOR MONEY TO GAIN

The lust for wealth can cause much pain
Hurting and placing a child in pain
Starved of love because of greed
A child whose life is lost
Cannot be recovered at any cost

On auto pilot
Running through verses
That do not make sense
Words running ahead
But none are laughing

All plans on deck
Sitting is hard
Conversation
Makes no sense now

And contests therein
Which he catalogs
For all who enter

They wonder why

To enter same
And gain acclaim

Like speed chess
So much fun

Premium Member 'Blue'


In my spring garden
came a drifting gem,
a blue butterfly
twirling and spinning,
to sip from a rose!

She came floating
to my daisies,
painted pretty
resting sweetly.

She found my
water pond
landing there.

Sipping,
water,

blue.

Cheering myself
Ignoring mistakes
Not kicking myself
Such kudos to me
Loving me gently

Laugh at mistakes
Will do better
Or maybe worse
Don’t really care

Premium Member I Know God
When a heart does break
When a friend does fail
When a mind might grieve
When a fear will leave
When there is just love

When a heart loves
When friends do win
When minds know grace
When fears burn bright

There is hope
There is right
There is more

Premium Member They Lost
Young boys seen playing,
Shouting and laughing,
Young and innocent,
No cares in their world,
No clouds in their sky.

The Vietnam War:
Young men fighting.
Facing danger,
Facing near death.

Vietnam 
Veterans,
Deeds unsung.

Cowards!
Heroes

Die.

SOOTHING MY SOUL
Serenity quest
midst storm surge echoes
quietude stillness
soothing soul and heart...
genuine peace I yearn.

"My peace I give...
...I leave with you..."
Jesus Christ's words
great assurance.

Hope-filled joy
pacifies
my spirit.

Thank God
He grants...

...peace.

Premium Member Heaven's Ribbons
Rainbows in the sky
Are heaven's ribbons,
Awarded to us
When the storm passes,
And the rain ceases.
Rainbow ribbons,
Richly coloured,
Lovely symbols
Of nature's law:
After the
Black thunder,
White lightning,
Rainbow
Colours
Soon.

Premium Member Dead Roses
Where the roses bloom
Beneath the hot sun,
Sweet scent fills the air,
And bees sip nectar,
While birds sing above.
When roses die
From too much heat,
Their petals fade,
Their scent is lost.
Dead roses
Remind me
Of dead love -
Dead love
Leaves no

TP Trails
My toilet paper
regularly trots
out of the bathroom,
throughout the whole house,
no, it is not trained.

If it were trained
I am certain 
it would proudly
stay nice and neat.

My cat walks
it every
single day;

The Sneaky Thunderstorm
The approaching rainstorm,
Rolls across darkened skies;
Tries to hide in the clouds;
It will not have success.
It happens too often;
Everyone knows its goal.

It shakes the Earth and 
terrifies the kids;
“boom…boom…ba bang… boom;”
Angels bowling, huh?
Do I look stupid?

Everyone knows
Angels don’t bowl;
Soccer’s their game...Read More

Beach time is play time
Towels, hats, sunscreen, snacks
Blanket, books and toys
Sun shines down on us
Water invites cool

Build sandcastles
Watch it topple
Lie down in sand
Race to the shore

Splashes rain
Giggles bloom
Happiness

Day ends
Good-bye

Premium Member The Key
Riding those demons
Life lived totally
In vain, destined to
hell's fiery hot heat
All life's good unclaimed 

Addicted life
Cannot abstain
Woes surround, choke
sweet breath away

Feelings drained
Dear God help
me now to

 abstain,
Monster

Slain!!

Muse Erupts
Haunting dreams awake me;
I must analyze them;
Awake, up and penning;
Muse erupts through my hand.
I’m writing so swiftly;
I misspell; skip letters;

To ignore, betrays
And she will not hush.
“It’s time that we slept!”
I say, she replies back, 
“No! Not now; just write!”

The Hot Summer Sun
The hot summer sun burns
But nowhere can I hide
My path has no respite
Finally a small wood
I rest in shaded glade
And take a while to cool


Looking ever on
I see the heat haze,
Baked by long hot days
The footpath wobbles
But this is my...Read More

when i close my eyes
sometimes i see you

of eyes closed tight

done for God’s honour!
