Avian Art

The day breaks on the edge of azure sea,
squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine.
Flapping feathered wings in cadence of glee,
venture out for prey far from the shoreline.

Squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine,
gliding through the satin sheen of brine air,
venture out...Read More

What causes me to love a poem 
Is one that lingers in my mind, 
A poem of a kindred spirit kind,
The kind that makes me feel at home.

A solemn poem that makes me cry,

I Am Envious of the Sky Bird
It all began one afternoon

The ground was hot and the world seemed bounded
But up the sky the boastful sky bird glided gaily
Enjoying the boundless splendour of the universe
Huh! If only I had wings like that bird!
The bird heard me, swooped...Read More

Words of A Dying God, Part IV
...‘But for existence to continue on
a deity must always exist,
and each will consume all that went before,
then remake it, so that all will persist.

‘That is why you die, and why you struggle,
and though the process seems ugly and cruel,

Candlelight burns in this quiet space
I imagine the smile, glowing on your face
I feel you are here, from many miles away
As the sun has returned to brighten the day
Kiss me like there is no tomorrow

Ahh, romance from the hand of God -
Oh how does he keep finding more ways
To stoke and stir the scents of perfection,
To dab perfume on pulse points each day.

Good Mornings and Good Nights released
Like lovebirds from a...Read More

Vacationing Fly
A fly on vacation calls home to complain:
The weather’s fine, sunshine and blue sky,
just as the brochure guaranteed every fly.
To my appetite, dogs are plentiful
but leashed, owners scrupulously dutiful,
carry poop bags, so there’s not a scrap
of fresh dog doo anywhere....Read More

'Twas the night before Christmas and all were asleep,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a sheep.
The cattle were snoozing, the pigs were at rest
And the chickens were settled asleep on the nest.

Apart from some snoring the night air was...Read More

Premium Member Fly On The Wall
I am a fly upon the wall
Of the White House Oval Office,
Secretly listening to all
The interesting White House gossip,
And that was how one day I heard -
I swear that I heard Dubya say -
Although I know it sounds absurd:
"You know,...Read More

The Rendezvous 

He sat in a yellow chair 
staring through an open window,
staring to the distant west with lights bobbing 
in a shifting sea of emerging fog,
He saw thick black power lines 
stretching across the trees out back,
Stretching and reaching...Read More

Four minutes to do what you want
What ya gonna do?
Listen to a pop song
Get half a blow job
Smoke a cigarette
Drive round the block
Read two pages of a book
Do fifty press-ups
Recite a poem or two
Watch most of Tom and Jerry

For the heart knows no better for the taste is bitter alone

I wish I could fly
I wish that I could fly.
I would do back flips in the sky.
I'd be superman Lois' hero.
Dashing through restaurants grabbing a churro.
One bad thing though, I might get struck by lightning.
That would be very frightning....Read More

It seems to me that my life has been a war,
since a little girl I have held a warning sword;
all sorts of bullies I have had to endure,

Today the summer sky is wearing
a dress of clear, brilliant blue,
adorned by a golden sun,
and trimmed with tiny clouds
of unblemished white,
and in the sky,
on this day,
birds fly

As I watch the sun descend from view,
cast shadows across the land anew, 
Floating warehouses engulf the sky
thus the shadows never die.

The drones which fill the evening air,
aren’t drones of old to thus compare,
but silent, programmed to communicate,
delivering goods and...Read More

Will I fly free
I want to fly free like a bird 
Breaking this wall of Jericho into dust,
Transcending my limitations and boundaries above the sky
Escaping from this miserable prison I just want to fly.

All those catapults of prying eyes on my flesh

Her parents use to read her Fairy Tales
she remember their voices…

which is why, she imagines, she grew up
believing in happily ever after.

She believes in bears that talk…
in trees that dance…
in wizards who can fly...
She believes a kiss can...Read More

A bird blares in the garden,
