Premium Member Soul Surfer



"Soul Surfer" 



I bought some sea shell beads 
today, 
stood by the ocean 
while the half sharp winter wind 
washed 
through 
me 
and 
whispered stinging sticatto 
cold licks next to my ear, so sincerely - 
that spot, you know that...Read More

Premium Member Witch Heldabeth
Diving and dodging Halloween’s trick-or-treating brigade
Is something Witch Heldabeth could pretty much do in the shade.
She had plenty of experience, and her light steps were keen.
Her gymnastics well known in the Coven’s Pure Glade.

She did a few dives, to show...Read More

Seductive Saltiness Beckons Me
leaving the hot sands 
of comfort wading into 
the salty unknown 
diving headlong into 
its coldness that shocks 
my body I rise to breathe 
while the waters burn 
my eyes its profound 
stength nudges me as, 
a mother does her...Read More

Premium Member The Transfer Station
He ignored the warning signs and moved carefully forward and backward

In the rocking chair of swept memories and went for a wild white knuckle ride 

Swayed but not faltering although he swung like a junky on amphetamine pills

Soaked in recollections...Read More

Premium Member Forever After
It was with a smile creeping onto my lips, I said “hello”
Never ashamed of poor manners
As your beautiful laugh encouraged me
To hear you speak just as I
And in turn made me laugh so purely
These are forever, my own memories
For when...Read More

Swimming Moves
We used to go swimming with our parents and children at the Fitness Institute,
The facilities were enhanced, we had showers and a make-up room.

There was a swimming pool and a tennis court, 
After  your swim, you could sun yourself...Read More

Premium Member Chill in the October Air
Football heroes relive their youth
I can smell grandma’s pumpkin pie.
Witches and goblins lounge on porch.
Joyful leaves diving into heaps.

Halloween costumes being discussed.

Premium Member October Cool
Crisp lemon colored leaves
kamikaze off branches
Diving and dying
Glorious unconcerned dance

Squirrels chatter
Scold each other over nuts
flip their curly tails
with sassy attitudes

Deer walk softly,
fearing November, understanding
Many will be laying down their lives in November
Their hoofs smash multi-colored leaves into the forest floor.

October...Read More

Premium Member My Heart
It feels like you’ve been talking on the phone
To a wonderful old friend who you’ve known
Forever, since you were in high school or even
Younger; possibly in grade school…
When you read a poem that you can truly
Relate to, a poem that...Read More

After Words


After the passion,
the nocturnal diving 
of sea-creatures 
leaves echoes and splashes. 

I go into the kitchen;
it is somewhere in the night.
in a dim pool of light. 

After sex, the air-conditioner
hums louder, 
or is it the fridge de-frosting,
or is it the...Read More

Premium Member Doctor Brings Me Back
Holding the boulder. Can I swim?
Sure.
Gurgle. Gurgle.

Jumping on a trampoline. Want to see?
Of course I have done it before.
Broken nose.

Diving from a cliff
Landing on hidden underground city.
Dead now.

Flying toward heaven
Angels try to keep up
Want to see my guardians

Keeping me alive

Halloween Full Moon
Once, a moon rose to a Halloween night,
Gold and round, it shines upon marble slabs of stone,
And in the lonely towers vampires licked pale lips,
Through woods, shivers of a werewolf's call. 

Silhouetted in the night, bloodthirst searched for life,
And marble...Read More

Premium Member This Reality
Where people in need 
Are labelled 'Hoarders'
Vicars and priests
Find time to solve murders.

And builders spend pennies
Making profits on houses
And lifestyle gurus
Show us how to fold trousers.

And bookies fix odds
For the afternoon races
And judges cast judgements
On bizarre family cases.

And contestants press...Read More

Mermen
Mermaids splashing in the sea
Mermen watching from the reef
Bodies writhing to the waves
Fins flashing tongues of fire
Neptune tossing a splashing wave.

Mermen catching a meal of fish
Whales singing in the currents
Boulders lining the beach afar
The mermaids flirting in the water
Tongues sticking...Read More

SLUMBER
The curve of your feet lain together
Soft skin wrinkles along relaxed soles
As right foot cradles the left in its arc

The arch of your shoulders as they curve
To where they meet your soft downy neck
Head fallen forward and face buried deep

Premium Member It Looks Like a Wristwatch But
It looks like a wristwatch but they are different now.
Not a wristwatch at all. A computer, an I-pad, an I-pod,
A diving board, a sewing machine, a refrigerator.
Lovely, I say.
And it can pilot a plane, she says.
Which might explain its cost.

Yarra Valley

Arcadian almost snake like road, moonlit, bumpy and quiet,
Fox tippy-toed across to the burrow,
In anticipation thrown a singular look,
Beyond the gate lovely nook,
For you, the least I could do.


Verdant but with a lot of grunt,
The prospect of this dyad
Simple and...Read More

Ante Bellum
In this rainy coldness of a night
I am drained and dry like a hanging Bacalao.
I hope it comes to pass!

As grey as ash is - as dim as an ar$e

Midnight Gardens
Sleep beckons with its gentle arms,
Wrapping slowly in comfort,
Gently drawing the weary in,
To its nightly embrace.
Dreams of midnight gardens,
Are lit by the fireflies
Dancing among the scented arbour,
With their flickering light.
The moonlight dances flittingly,
Through the rustling leaves,
Making the shadows leap and...Read More

Red Pill


yah, I took the red pill

Realms
Reach the highest realms..
Where there is no hierarchy..
Only a change in frequency..
A high vibratory frequency..
So in tune with love..

Tune into a channel of peace and harmony..
A construct of no limitations..
Captured by softness light as a feather..
Enraptured by the wondrous multiple...Read More

Siege at Baker Ranch, Part IV
IV.
Myron’s jaw clenched as he eyed the old brave,
who stood quiet and took in the whole scene
glared intensely at Myron where he stood,
said,”Well then white man, what do you mean?”

Myron just stared iron back at the man,
said”Leave my home and...Read More
