It's Magic
We all need a little magic
Magic and intrigue
Can be sad or tragic
Imagination can feed

When a clever magician
Pulls a rabbit from a hat
Everyone laughs and claps
Nothing can be wrong with that

Then, dressed very smartly
In his evening dress
The conjuror pulls out some...Read More

Like a bird flying with no Air
Like a butterfly set on pyre 
Like a daffodil caught in a tyre
Like all hope mere a satire 
Like all dreams out on Hire

Beautiful becomes the rain
When it falls on the plain..!
Flying helter-skelter are birds
While I have no words
When eagle flies so high
Up above in the sky
Morning is full of dew
I yearn to play with few
After rain sun gets shine
Wow! Pleasure is all...Read More

To get from A to Zee,
Requires Speed,
That and other trash;
Have whatever you fancy,
It’s Happy Hour,
Ice, Coke, Crack, dope……….
Know what I mean!

Ok admitted - not easy!
People need dough
To get what they crave,
Either you push
The stuff,
Give your body away,
Or you’re Daddy’s little...Read More

Dandelions and daffodils 
Baby's Breath and violets, mix
In flowerpots on window sills 
A sparrows nest built broken sticks
Cracked open shells, first flights from chicks 
Testing their wings and flying skills

One day they'll learn to make their fix

A Blustery Autumn Day

Mischievous bursts of autumn’s laughter
Pulls down the last of the season’s bright artistry
 Carried away on blustery gusts,
  Weaving a tapestry of autumn’s magic
    In tiny whirlwinds of yellow, orange and umber –

Premium Member An Eerie Warning
Birds seen flying together in large flocks tonight
Words of warning sounds emit as coos and cackles
Herds of cows start running toward the barn door light
Blurred together as a murder of black crows and grackles

"Black Molasses"

Black Molasses 
holds to ransom 
sucked into 
Tropic of Capricorn mud
as bushfires bleed
sugar from cane
like molten glucose 
shot into the veins
of Mother Earth gone all
libertine sour 
like Lemon Grass
crushed and burnt 
acrid smoke inhaled
through the flaring nostrils

Premium Member AIRPORT WOES

Airports a blur they look the same
From one big city to the next
Departures delays and arrivals
Morning noon and night
Stuck midway in transition
The epitome of boredom
Everyone with a place to go
Their script their ticket and their mission
They all have a story...Read More

The Roma

I can’t stop thinking of the Roma people
There are many of them in Algarve,
Horse and cart to the annoyance of car drivers.
Horse manure their only pollution.

When a bank goes belly up, you can’t sue them
For misusing your deposit.

Premium Member Keeping Order
On a back porch the feline sat
watching a busy sewer rat
while overhead a flying bat
diplomat of their habitat
observing preying pussycat
had to get even tit-for-tat
squealing he warned that sewer rat
it took off like a scared bobcat!

A Ghazal (in free verse)

Each tear I shed shines like the sun,
Speaks of the pain I suffer all-day-long and night.

Adrift on a boat, I move waywardly,
Where is the oarsman to take me across, save me from the sea?

It Doesn't Matter
There's that sound again
A sound of dying 
And the company of a friend

Black ash and a silver cloud
This sliver of hope makes a dumb man proud

Your hair blowing is too lofty
Every thought speaks of impossible love
Radiant and respectable
Down to earth, and still far away

You've shivved me in the heart
And I'm content with that
A simple breeze lays waste
To a dream bleeding out like this

Where stunning violet shadows stalk,

Curious about what I will say..
