Premium Member The Chance Meeting
A tiny dot at the horizon
At the very far end of the road
I knew it was a human
Not a dog, or a speeding Ford.

Must have been a mile away
So the eye could just see
Moving slowly with swing and sway
I knew...Read More

Local History


The elderly 
have died here, in the shade
of this curtained close.

My world is narrowing:
small occurrences,
haunt the moments;
the coming and going
of window shadows,
the number of sparrows
at my sparrow feeder.
The language of significance
grows louder.

The dead are my neighbors,
three, four, six times removed.

Although I called you my friend, there's no room at this end,

It Speaks
Severed the written word
Angry wind blows
As the scream carries emotion
The head moves to and fro
When will we heed? 
What are we to hear?
Twisted and coveted  
Lectured and a tender whisper
Why can’t we let it die?
Why did it lie?
A heart...Read More

Set me free and cry no more
When i come to the end of the road,
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in the gloom filled in the room,
Why cry for a soul set free?
I went not by choice but it was time
Time for...Read More

To feel that butterfly flutter of affection, a touch of love,

The soul yearns and searches for happiness and comfort,

Bad Poem
One day I delivered a poem
one that seemed to be premature
so I swaddled her up
and set her aside
to grow 'til I felt reassured

How she yowled and howled for attention...
how she cried so piteously!
How she coughed and she sneezed
whimpered and wheezed
