Premium Member THERE'S THE DOOR


I find it funny
bordering absurd
to hear people
ramble on and
spill their beans
they must be all
delusional
thinking they are entitled
do they really
not hear themselves
I’m absolutely delighted
to send them
on their quirky
and eccentric way
as I shake my head 
clear the air
and try hard to pretend

The Blank
When I was short in years, I did not wait
to make eager mark on the siren slate.
One pause to consider the beauty there, 
then a dive into clouds of starlit air.

Always I knew of the power, so strange.
The scope of...Read More

it was a dark november day
the clouds hanging ominous
time seeming to stand still
the sun long gone astray

in a dark most somber mood
we headed toward memorial hill
feeling quiet lost in deep in thought
facing our mortality each in solitude

one of so many...Read More

UNDERLYING
Underlying

Readers beware! For your information
Some words mean much more than they say:
CONSEQUENCES have negative CONNOTATION
Even if will be very good things.
You’re so smart when you DEDUCE, but
INFER and PORTEND verbs have bad rings.
Politicians spin words this way
To create their desired...Read More

Neighborly Distances
From a neighborly distance, the drama of a life's finality unfolded
A man named Mient. Once a well-known construction-scientist
When we became neighbors at Christmas he was a double amputee
Both legs taken by diabetes, then a man of his own ethnicity
Challenged him...Read More

Quandary: After I Sleep, After I Sleep

This happens just beyond you know,
A field of pleasure and delight,
Where frost once held and now let free,
Need I of sleep, so I must go.

Think different should I remain,
To set my sights, a righteous...Read More

Nothingness Calls
Leading from today
into the past

Present state of mind
destroyed

The future an orphan,
waiting disowned

Hell’s pathway
—to the void

POSTIVE GIFTS AND HIDDEN TREASURE
First came Storm Ciara 
On Sunday the ninth of February
She caused total havoc throughout the UK
Heavy rain brought serious flooding
Her gales so strong brought buildings tumbling
Whilst on the Isle of Wight
The most southerly tip of England
Gusts of ninety seven miles...Read More

Why didn't you care
Words hurt 
They can trip me up
Whilst leaving me to
Pick up the last of 
My pride
Over time I have become
Used to the hatred and
To the lies
But that doesn’t mean 
That I wasn’t still 
Affected by them
Once these words were said

Heaven Waits
Counting spaces between the notes,
the music came alive

The melody deepened, the band on fire,
all bees had left the hive

Breathing in one fast refrain,
my lungs too full to stop

An Angel melts his pearl baton,
the Sirens blazing hot

New sounds created, harp destroyed,

The Lava Flows


The lava flows of Hawaii,
Fresh surrounds of a coral sea,
A fern forest midst rising mist,
Place where orchids and sweethearts tryst,
Tempestuous flames apogee.

Entertaining birds are carefree,
Verdant vales, mountain trails, sightsee,
Paradise echoes beauty's gist,
The lava flows.

People observe Queen's Jubilee,
As a...Read More

playful innocence
far from trappings of gifts and fanfare
Christmas will always be for family
for showing appreciation
of the closeknit everlasting bond
that wanting to be together
that warmth
the thoughtfulness
the jokes
the laughter
the hot meal
more like a feast
prepared with love
the anticipation
the joy
and
lasting memories

Premium Member BROTHERS


I remember 
being maybe eight
you were my idol
my big brother
we used to laugh
and carry on
sometimes we’d
even dress as cowboys
but most of all
you were there
when times were rough
how quickly
the years flew by
but nothing
can erase
the vivid memories     ...Read More

we stood there
posing
shivering
on a cold
november morning
hearts heavy
saying our goodbyes
as we laid
your soul
to rest

He trusted that writer’s block was just a lull and searched for his pen

Ink had dried for some time and his worn mind scratched for words

A lullaby or even a tristich would do if an epic eluded his triste drought

Hoping for love
When I was young
I used to dream
Of a Valentine's message
In the school magazine.

Every year I lived in hope
But did i ever get one?
Nope :( 

Declarations of love
For the pretty girls,
But none for Miss Freckle
With the mad ginger curls.

do you remember way back when
golden pleasures of simplicity
the magic of human connectivity 
it all seemed unpretentious then

FAMILY LEADER
Leader of the home with virtuous height
Bracing up family with grand posture
Governing prudently by great faith’s might  
He’s our Daddy in his godly gesture.

Daddy dearest is our human fortress.
He loves us as he trusts the Lord* Who’s great.

Surrounded by strange blank faces, 
pianist plays a medley of melancholic melodies,
magnifying our sorrows, as we close our eyes.

yet I wonder, should we stay or should we go,
for the heart has no desire for trodden...Read More

Blind Eyes and Deaf Disciples
blind minions do not hear
deaf disciples cannot see
callous subzero frozen feelings 
breed gibberish and jarring jubilee 

this bloody self-declared one-eyed messiah
rode to town astride a pompous ass
belching barking oratory
for an aimless lower class

a starry-eyed astrologer
alchemist extraordinaire
summoned shrouded quatrains
revealing he baffles...Read More
