Are We Too Cold To Look Beyond
“Irish I am,” my mam speaks in hushed tones to the air
She questions still, seeming to her alone
Intones, “Ireland, O Ireland, what are you?
Where do you keep yourself, so I may rediscover you?”
Her speech unknown surely to her
Rains down, trickles...Read More

Premium Member Leggings
Leggings cuddle my thick thighs
Making me feel so contented
With the chubbiness I feel inside
When I go to try on my wardrobe

Leggings bring me to peace with myself
When I would be dishonored by jeans
They feel so soft and willing to bend
That...Read More

Premium Member Summer School
It was a smile, simply,
that would absolve me of my virtue ...
a whiter-than-white allure of the unexplored.

Barely a teen, I was mesmerized by her sublime sway -
distant, yet she followed the puerile anguish of my eyes,
back-and-forth, then ever-so-slowly UP her...Read More

Premium Member Her Face is Printable
Her face is printable
Publishable
But manageable?
Please!

Her hair is the hair of thousands
Only interesting to a cat
Who wants to nest in it.

I see the redness on
her bottom lip and I see she is more than alive.
She is raring to dance the tango.

Fascination of Nothing
The writhing yellow flames consuming the void,
Luminescent rays beaming through the window.
Shaking floor as the burning fuel
Propels us through empty space.
The lifeless world, endless but finite,
A curious cluster of dust.
No end in view, no beginning to look back on,
Just the...Read More

Fascination with Light
Desire glides in on calico wings,
a breath of a moth
seeking a companionable light,

where it hovers, unsure,
sullen, shy or demure,
in the margins of night,

a soft blur.

With a frantic dry rattle
of alien wings,
it rises and thrums one long breathless staccato

and flutters and...Read More

While on my travels, I met a very young child today
He let out a yell, as if to grab my attention to play

We both smiled and...Read More

Oh, the so-sublime motion of your sway,
Dressed in naught but the moon's wisps,
Sole fascination of the gods themselves,
Should Valhalla ever hold the refinement
To abide such flawlessly beguiling rhythm.

You toss your birthday outfit with intent...Read More

I have given the matter careful thought,
Awarded it due consideration,
And I believe that children should be taught
To appreciate the fascination

In the planets, and in the sun and moon,

Time Passes
The wild whirl of life goes on and engulfs us;
Passions come and are dissipated, Urgent needs
Are met, and recede into the subconscious.
And time passes.

I see you a year hence, from when last we met, and
You slump, tired, the shirt not...Read More

Premium Member Transformation v Change
Today I heard,
despite considerable dissonance,
a distinction between external change
and internal transformation.

This feels like a difference with some merit,
but reminds me of further nuances
and possibilities for healthy
and pathological transitions,
great and small.

Transformation
seems like a good thing.
A negative internal change
evokes words like
deterioration,
fragmentation,

While "change"

Imagination
A child's imagination will flow
with energy wild and carefree
Innocence only they can know
Holding visions they can see

As adults our gift of imagination
We lose that magical ability
No longer have the fascination 
It is lost when we gain maturity

A purity makes it...Read More

Silver Labyrinth
On my driveway
glistening in the moonlight
magnificent display
of swirling, curling ribbons
intermingling...
a painted labyrinth!

Who has done this to my property?
it’s not my creation...but
it’s quite beautiful.
upon inspection,
elated fascination;
snail trails...
from a tiny
VanGogh.

All life truly is, precious.

How enchantment reigned on moonbeams 
as the freewheel of shooting stars glossed
which once pulsed my heart's desire...
Fascination of blinks traveled at the speed 
of mystic light where the only limitations
were the flickers of tender reveries.
 
Wishes granted by star-beams' curl
