Premium Member Gorgeous Day for Steelhead Trout
The sun peeks out in a shy way,
Unsure whether the day is to be cool or warm
Pink clouds parade their truth in a dark sky
Appearing fiery as a well stoked campfire

The dock is silent; not a peep.
Fish slumber in cold...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.

Read - emption
Sumptuous suggestions straddle stagnancy
Summoned by engaging pages
Susceptible skulls imbibe vibrancy
Surmounting latitude notion ravages

Authors serve smorgasbord swathes of research 
Reading's pizza fuses flavours opposing
Issues investigated, valid views aptly asserted
Essays stretch perception, anomaly concepts provoking

Unfurling knowledge tunes recognition's accord
Rhizomes capacitate vertical fronds...Read More

I am the Flame
I am the Flame
Red hot and dancing

Wood keeps me alive
I give you a clear view
Of what’s in the dark 
To help you survive
I start with a spark...Read More

Genesis One
Genesis One


In the beginning God
First words in Genesis
Created Heaven and earth
A perfect work was this.


“Let there be light,” He said,
And darkness fled away.
So God created day and night
And that was the first day.


Then on the second day
The waters did divide

Premium Member River Stones


These are the stones
that ground nails and sharpened talons,
they have slid under mountains of ice and fire,
have been polished by the glacial dead.

The stones endure now in layers of motion and stillness,
some are wind-tools shaped by a tireless chisel,
other’s glint...Read More

Morning Perambulations of a Carp
At the rim of the reflecting pool
the water bristles with morning light.
Slowly it emerges from a depth

of primordial murky browns 
and greens, as though it and its watery
world had just been created. 

Its reddish-gold scales and ghostly 
tipped white tail...Read More

All things can tempt me from a poet's craft,
Some efforts never get past first draft,
Sometimes I search for a subject in vain

Since TV is so abysmal today,
A rare good programme can tempt...Read More

Can you come out and play today?
For we are older now and need not fear if we fall in the water.
For no one would dare to say a word
Should we come home with mud in our hair.

Premium Member The Dead Pour Me Out Like Tea


I am dead to many, a few are dead to me.
I am not forgotten

they still pour me...Read More

Between underwater stems
Among the muddy water, the shadow of an obscure wanders,
He wants something, but he can't say it.
Her body lies among the deep stems,
And no one is looking for it on earth.
Her white legs were home to fish,
And thin hands live...Read More

The Alley Cat Blues
I am tired of not being hugged,
my owner moved and left me behind,
searching for a roof over my head,
dreaming of a soft and comfy bed.

I'm singing the alley cat blues.

One time I was pampered and ate like a queen,

Premium Member What Can We Do

A feathered clutch once bewailed –
What can a sparrow do
in a sky full of raptors?
The red-necked puckers’ won’t arrive
until blood smells like copper pennies.

She was only one winter old,
cried a fuss-bucket booby.
Begone crone.
 croaked a plumed strutter.

Pitbull or Poodle
Guns blaze while bodies pile high
Somewhere you’d hope 
They’d be done with the lies
The ones that are talking
they don’t wear the vest
they’re just some more fodder
who hide with the rest
Don’t chain your soldiers
Those who hunt in the dark

Russia is a strange and great country, not quite in Europe
and not quite Eastern, they react to mayhem but seldom
