Premium Member Poem for Whoever
she is tranquillity
yet lava flows in her veins

cut her open and you'll burn

she is Eve's apple
nemesis to patriarchy

one bite and you'll bleed

she is a rainbow
an eagle taming storms

no chains can contain her

she is a pilgrim of passion
composing a trail of...Read More

The Waterfall

In cold winters, water spates into sculptured ice;
opaque embodiments frozen in motion.
Art almost living, as it creaks and crests,
tumbling toward some other birth.
Lovers come here, drunk teenagers,
and just drunks.
Empty beer cans roll or fill with a gritty snow.
Someone has spray-painted...Read More

Broken poet

Silence is golden 
Mind is traveling and rolling 
Heart secures with pains and trouble 
While society wraps me into brokenness 

              Smashed, dusted, abandoned

The Starlings Descend

They flow out of a pocket of sky,
a door in the air no one saw
until dark wings shower
over our heads.

Their plumage has a metallic sheen,
as if they were made in parts,
in some elvish workshop, their wings
hammered on last.
Wings that talk...Read More

you’re not my judge, nor my jury;
And I don’t have to worry;
I’ve been unforgiven-BY YOU…
And yet I’ve already paid my dues;

I am
Oh, woo a oh

Not of this place;
Just a sinner, saved by grace;
Not of this world;
Yet still I’m a...Read More

cooing blackbirds drowned out with quick ugly squawk

wooing bovine herds mooing down by eagle rock
airy haymow fragrance potent on this summer day

To Interlopers in the Middle East
Back yonder, when I was a boy, over sixty years ago,
A haughty sergeant, drunk a bit, big as a strong buffalo,
Yet nimble too, strolled down our street in a cheerful afternoon
Together with some friends of his to spin a yarn...Read More

Premium Member Spring Birds - CL
Robins are a delight to see
When winter snow is almost gone
To see them chirp and bounce with glee
And hear songbirds singing at dawn

An eagle soars, mighty and brawn
Flying, circling the sky so free
Feeders full, hummingbirds are drawn
Bird watching is joyous...Read More

Premium Member CHILLY WINTER BIRD- -
Chilly winter bird
A white, gentle eagle calls
despite the squirrel

Chilly winter bird
a young, gentle bird so cold
huddles by squirrel

Chilly winter bird
rest ever so gentle so falls
despite the squirrel

The rising spirit
First steps on crisp new snow,
Flakes dancing with sparkle and glow,
Vibrations rising from the toes,
Through the body to the soul.
Snow clad trees, strength they lend,
To the weight as they bend,
Creating tunnels, spectacular view,
Over untreaded paths, guiding you.
To the perfect place,in...Read More

Too Late
She sat on an old wooden bench rotted by age and weather.

She looked intently at-

the whitewashed houses
the donkey laden as it clopped on a cobbled street
children as they played and laughed- not caring of the past- or the future
the golden...Read More

Whispered in the wind
The wind whispered to me a secret I could not share,
I carried it around hidden in my memories,
time moved on and the secret distorted in content,
I wondered often if it was real or imagined.

I sat on a mountain not at...Read More

A golden, old eagle flies
cold wings before soar

A headed, old eagle flies

Beautiful becomes the rain
When it falls on the plain..!

When eagle flies so high
Up above in the sky

After rain sun gets shine
Wow! Pleasure is all...Read More

Roasted Faraway, for Pius Adesanmi
By Izunna Okafor

Beyond the shrubs of Sahara 
Lifted a munt of brainy bond 
Over the Mississippi of Ethiopia
Lofted a penner with his hunky thoughts

Across the bridge of a foreign land
Hovered a book of beautiful pages
Tightly enclaved yet as an Ireland
In a skull...Read More

In colors of light

Found himself in a forest of light green foliage

Threw his colours and ink pots high into the air

Waited for streams of consciousness to settle

Until sentiments found sentences on their own

That lay upon the blue cheek of a smiling sea,
