Premium Member Deeply Etched

Deep as first love, and wild as all regret
the memories of you are deeply etched.
And I replay each one lest I forget
even the silly ones that seem far-fetched.

Your smile resides within my heart and soul
never to be forgotten or misplaced.

God a Man
When God came to be man
Silent was the heavens 
upon this proclamation
     Trembling the state of earth, humankind’s dwelling
      yet on earth came he to be a man

Premium Member FIRST LOVE an analysis
Dreams,desires,bitter so sweet
An adolescent trail trodden,
Engulfed by moods,melancholy and sudden;
Aches from a first love leaving,
Painful yet poignant;
Novel experience sadden,then abates
Then will gladden
As mellowed..anticipation awaits....Read More

death knocks
Death knocks
 I’m stuck in the bog land of poetry
 Trying to make a small manuscript of thirty pages.
 I have reached 29 pages, but all seems so futile
Words I have written before keep cropping up
I can’t endlessly repeat myself.

Would You Be Mine
Would you be mine
Beyond the stars having a reason to shine?
Would you be mine?

Could I be yours
Following stars going the distance ashore?
Could I be yours?

Scattered bouquet, petals in the grass, you walked away.
I need you 


In two years and wildflowers...Read More

Our light had glowed the daylight to shadows,
What gleamed in the day was swapped by the night,
First love 'tis gone, for 'twas...Read More

naive seventeen
When you sung songs of naïve seventeen
No chord was struck, nor one thought rewritten 
For love so young, surely, it was extreme
And left small hearts yet deceived and broken
For hope of love shrouded in the naïve—
No thought, I had, of...Read More

A brand new car is what I love,
Love the body, the new car smell,
So to local luxury garage I drove,
that’s where I met lovely Shantelle!

Bright blue was the colour in mind,
A four wheel drive good for snow,
For my golf kit,...Read More

Chocolate cake,

When the sun starts to pale in September,
I remember the things we did in May.
Ere our flame became a dying ember,
Hopes were high and our hearts were young and gay.
We didn't stop to think as time flew past

Strange Weather 

The camels are swimming, 
and who knew...
they knew how?
What a surprise...
to all that stood by, 
watching them cross the desert, 
like ducks on a pond. 

Careful and fearful, 
some should be, 
as the sucking sand, 
has grown hungry.

What is that noise?
I have heard it before?
In the ramblings...
of my loved ones words? 

I must get up and seek it out.
I rise like the house is on fire...
but in fear of being alive, 
but dead still. 
I rush.

Scales to Measure

We are not all equal. 
Some can dance on a wire...
above the crowd, 
Some can swim...
all the way to China. 
While others,
make food that feeds...
many every day, 
or take the hearts...
from some, 
to place in others.

Starlit recorder of summer nights,
what magic spell bewitches you?
They say that all lovers love first in the dark...
Is it true?
