Premium Member A Light at the End of the Tunnel
"What a fine day for a picnic," my friends all said,
In the dog days of summer, with the hot sun overhead.

We would all go for a swim, and then have a fine lunch,
And would return refreshed and happier, we had...Read More

Have You

Ever wondered how it happens?
How the last person stays, 
How they make sure, everyone else gets out?

Ever wonder why?
Is that important? 
As long as we are safe, 
does it really matter who sacrificed;
or more specifically or…
even more importantly what...Read More

Change of heart
Now that you're thinking,
Away from the crowds,
Now that you're able,
To stay in all night.
What matters most to you?
Is it freedom? Is it time?
The city is renewing,
The clouds look intact;
No worries, let's wait,
Life pauses sometimes.

But now that you're thinking,
That you're by...Read More

Premium Member Photograph
The three of us were all in shorts
that gorgeous day in June.
We had a little radio
To play our favorite tunes.

Rachel had her leather jacket,
me a halter top.
But Cheryl outdid both of us
with legs that went non-stop.

It’s been forty years since...Read More

Premium Member Just Do What You Say
Why don't people do what they say their going to do.
Why do people commit to help then not follow though.
Maybe it's because it's just not that important to them.
Or somehow, somewhere it got lost in their interim.

Whether it's their just...Read More

We have friends
Close with
Still communicating

Thinking they are forever there
In the moments to come
Talking about random things
Going deep in our souls

Doing everything
Being there
For each other
Hopefully for a lifetime

The thing is
There is no control
For all of them to stay
Being initiative
To understand

An herb used to calm an upset stomach,
Can also heal bodily stress and anxiety.
Yet for a certain troubled man who drives truck,
Grown bitter from life’s unfulfilled expectancy;

Who without good seeds of taste sown does say,
“Decrease healthy interactions of relation’s conduct!”

i have never
There is a love in me that’s unknown,
like a seed
I’ve never sown

A life with miseries alone,
for a pain
I’d never groan(ed)

A heart that needs to atone,
for things
I’ve never known

A feeling of hopelessness,	
for a life
I’d never own(ed)

It’s amazing what a chat can do,
Pen, email, blog or video;
When relationality exists,
The problem does not persist.

You say here, I say there,
The ear saturates care;
With honour we dare on,
For care and share patreon.

Perhaps it is, perhaps it isn’t? 

Perhaps it’s just what we’ve been given?

Perhaps for you it’s so far away?

Then why do you think perhaps for some it’s here to stay?

Perhaps the grief and pain it brings makes it more like...Read More

She passes by every day
A smile and nothing more
A neighbour on the close
She lives by the next door.

A mystery is to me,
Never a word she said
I wonder who she is
Maybe she’s filled with dread.

One day I shall speak to her,

slap you with a word
then, cross arms and wait
that's how she'd get you ... Grace Cleaves

The Other Day
Although I know failure is success postponed.
That her refusal; my failure 
Implies that this is another way NOT to do this.
But I can't take this any more.
