Premium Member How Many Fingers Does A Sandwich Have
Sandwiches don’t have fingers but
A finger sandwich has many those you eat
Try and finger that one out
A Giraffe is tall and can see over a wall

But an elephant has a longer nose
Monkeys can climb trees with ease
But birds can fly...Read More

haunted by the crows of the past

makes the shameful past last

causin' broken hearted mother's to moan

Aromatic Ambiance Accessed - CA

Along the ambrosial garden alleyway 
of assorted colors, it appeared we ambled together 
for ages, until an atrocious angst of afflicting storm 
blew away all the flowers abloom for us.

As apathy rent asunder my dreams gone awry
the embrace of the...Read More

Premium Member The Owl and the Pussy Cat
The owl’s wings are silent
The cat has no wings
The owl knows everything
But the cat has a tail and a tale to tell

The owl can turn its head 270 degrees
A cat’s head just meows
Owls are wise with big eyes
They also sleep...Read More

Only your beauty I see

To Beg
In a heated pace  
beauty breeds her longing face  
with set back eyes,
piercing and penetrating
where smoke can only hope to find  
embers that burn thru time  
and continuum  
pure oxygen stoked in flame...Read More

Todos os medos. E...Read More

October Old World Country Comforts

Silver flashes through ocean swells
sound ripples across the water
strolling the moonlight kissed water
surrender to nights sensual promise
foam breaks, mermaid soars resplendent
cobalt teal diamond skin shimmers
powerful tail propelling her way
phosphorescence trails behind
sea sparkles flitting in her wake
face startles, finely dotted aqua...Read More

Lonely Soul


I am all alone,
Inner mind says,
On both your sides,
In front of you,
Behind you,
Some one going with you,
All the time.

Yes, I am with you,
Says a voice,
Do not be afraid,
Go ahead,
Hold my hand,
No turning back,
Take your step,
Steadily, calmly.

Family may disown...Read More

The things none may ever describe

They are not my thoughts at all

Why, I forever ask myself
When deep below the oceans surface
Never, would I reach for your hand
For you witness fear deep within my eyes

You spoke
It was so softly you cried it to me
