Premium Member Carousel Dreams
I’d love to get a horse when I turn seven -
I’ll ride him in the sky way up to heaven.
Or I could get a puppy – I can name him
“Batman”! If he’s too wild then I’ll tame him.

I love when...Read More

Premium Member Photograph
The three of us were all in shorts
that gorgeous day in June.
We had a little radio
To play our favorite tunes.

Rachel had her leather jacket,
me a halter top.
But Cheryl outdid both of us
with legs that went non-stop.

It’s been forty years since...Read More

Quiet Soul
Quiet Soul

1963
Her skin is that of alabaster. Wide circles of red rouge pronounced her thin lips and each cheek.
She is soulfully unique.
Her hair of dried stalk was approving to her eyes of vacuous emeralds.
She traveled the two blocks from her...Read More

Corona Days
Sanonee says, I hate Corona.
All because of corona --now she is alone--
Now she can’t play outside, can’t hug friends, can’t enjoy favorite chocolates…
Once she was like a free bird –enjoyed freedom and its fruits--
New visitors are flying to see her...Read More

Quarantine Poem
Quarantined, in my room.
I pray the virus will end soon.
As far as symptoms, I have none.
Not a single, a single one.
My classes got canceled, it should be this man's favorite dream.
But all this boredom makes me wanna scream.
I've ran out...Read More

The baseball fields are empty...no crack of the bat nor cheers in the stands; 
no children's laughter in the park, and the balloon man can't be found...

Good Yankee Advice for Spring
Don’t be fooled by purple crocuses
or bright yellow daffodils – it’s an illusion.
They’ll be under a crust of snow by morning,
and the shovels you put away last month 
will have to be brought out and used again.

Spring is a magician...Read More

Premium Member Ann's Key

It’s one of those evenings when Beth doesn’t know
the woman beside her who talks soft and slow
of happy times SOMEbody had long ago.
If Beth’s feeling anything, it doesn’t show.

Ann brings out an album and says, “Mama, see,”
your favorite pictures.” She...Read More

Her Voice In The Night
A dark day
a twisted sky
the lightning crashes
the rain falls in sheets
and I am alone
but for the memory of you
a soft curl of dark red hair
a soft kiss on a freckled cheek
the light glinting off of hazel green eyes
I am alone

Premium Member Faeries Favorite Time of Day
Her wings hold her lightly above
the coneflowers her favorite
She glided down onto a promising one
with bright pink petals
the dew causing a shine

Faerie’s favorite time of day
sun began reaching out with long loving fingers
Faerie reposed on the pretty blossom
Turing her face...Read More

Premium Member You Are My Favorite
You are my favorite 
The mama said to the youngest
Not so much in words
But in smiles
in nods, in gentle pats
In her tone of voice

The oldest knew he was the non-favorite
Each time he saw the mama interact with his brother
He felt...Read More
