I need some warmth
I need some warmth
If not yours matters 
It would be too cosy to pay 
For each single humble day

Flying somewhere alike a dove 
The sun's needs a complete exposure
And no privacy hides by...Read More

Etymologists hate poetry -
I have that on the best authority -
Of course the bloody rhyme's not perfect!
What else do you expect?
The inventors of language
(About the closest match is "sandwich")
Were not supporters of our noble art,
They had us beaten from the...Read More

My Future Fate
I keep on observing couples pass me by oh so merrily,
Getting me all perked up, but at the same time, a bit of jealousy
I am deserving of no one and I know you'd disagree
Getting me slightly upset because I can't...Read More

Premium Member SUFFERING SEASON
Ralph Waldo Emerson: “A woodland walk, a quest for river-grapes, a mocking thrush, a wild rose or rock-living columbine, salve my worst wounds.”

SUFFERING SEASON

the sediment — a deposition seed,
of what meaning, this scrawl?

splinters splayed, suffering season
comforted by a columbine.

Why won't mama go to bed

There must be some mistake

And their home to make

Come Here, My Dear, and Have No Fear
What timid lamb discerns I am trustworthy, drawing near?

What sigh could signify to butterfly, "My heart is warm"? 
What rabbit out of habit doesn't dash in mortal fear?

Cupid’s Arrow


Cupid’s arrow has a flaw,
It always seems to fall short.
Love has teeth and claws,
And it isn’t a mere sport.

And it doesn’t cause love.
It seems to cause strife and makes us bawl,

Everything is going so wrong in the world it can't be true
I'm hardly awake
and I start to quake.
If I should choose
to switch on the news,
a message of doom
deepens my gloom.
From delusion to delusion
a world in confusion
tumbles and stumbles
as everything crumbles.
Then I see Sally
and hope starts to rally.
She's only seven
and a present...Read More

held captive by wounded limbs-
shrouded with perpetual foreboding
without a safeguard to redeem my

Fright night echoes sounds clink tapped chalices,
Amidst caused bruised concoctions aplenty,
Dons alehouse barmaids geniality,
Fair distance yonder gates of said palaces.

Camaraderie placates fools, nightfalls,
Host chambered snores all else unpleasantries,
Wenches clear tables its swill and varies,
Whilst yon night watchman hollers hourly calls.

Climbing out of it in a joyful way

flight,  good afternoon
a mantled, wild squirrels skips
betrayed by the doves

flipping and flopping
his tail waving so briskly
jumps from branch to branch

dropping nuts on doves
as they so do try to leave
