Butterscotch Breezes

The Sweetest place in dear England,
Is the Village of Dandelion Mizzle,
Where breezes smell of Butterscotch,
and rain tastes of Sherbet Lemon Drizzle.

How finely grind the checks and balances,
the system that minds the store.
To delve into the lies and challenges,
oh boy, what a national chore.

Premium Member Food to Life
A poetic life becomes reality and complete
with imagination and expression 
with a clean slate and full ink well; 
can taste the wind 's breath 
and bend like a blade of grass.

we did not appreciate her worth.
She could not save the trees, animals, or the ocean,
or stop the flooding because of icebergs broken.
She could not stop pollution, storms, or fires,
though asking for our help whispering her...Read More

Music of deception flows
Flipped faces metamorphose
In chameleon jamboree
I dance with me.

and conceited behavior, is now

acceptably considered a selfie.

shell shock
She held a seashell to her ear
But heard no soothing sea,
Just choking gasps of life caught in
An ocean of debris.
