Premium Member Out of Time
It was a beautiful day for a picnic in the park,
We all thought we would stay there until dark.

Just enjoying the peace of a late summer bliss,
Like a departing lover engages you with a kiss!

We lunched on good food, and...Read More

IT, Revisited

BEHOLD, this perilous journey, tis a whimsical tale of woe, that is delightfully bespoken, for welcomed ears to bestow, as a clown be found awakening, his oversized feet abound, his frizzy hair stabbed outwardly, murderously left undone. Methodical preparation...Read More

Journey to the Wildflower Plains
Take me away
To the open plains
Where the winds and
Wildflowers play.
Open and free
Just you and me
Feeling the high
Of a strong steady breeze.
Up, up way up high
We fly free like kites
And soar with eagles
Til clouds are nigh.
And when our trip is done
We’ve...Read More

Dear Editor or Shreditor
Dear Editor or Shreditor

Dear Ed: I don’t understand why
you will publish this other guy—
when I’m brilliant, devoted,
one hell of a poet!
Yet you publish Anonymous. Fie!

Fie! A pox on your head if you favor

Premium Member Accidents Will Happen
Talking to his quite young daughter
Was sometimes like talking to a wall
To him the message seemed to be plain
But to her, just not the case at all!

So once again he sat her down
He said, "That look there, just won't do"
He...Read More

Premium Member My Poor White Dress
Today I was walking barefooted, 
After a heavy thunderstorm had passed thru,
I was wearing a beautiful white cotton dress. 

I suddenly stumbled upon a puddle,
A beautiful muddy puddle, I was instantly
drawn to its diameter and mysterious depths.

The top of the...Read More

Premium Member ROUND AND ROUND

feeling trapped
at my wit’s end
going stir crazy
without a friend

spinning round in circles
in stagnant flow
no use rushing
nowhere particular to go

all I do is watch
as others carry on
they go thru life
having tons of fun

but in my bubble
prisoner of my own world

Sixteen and lonely,
a young bird, 
has gone lame,
from her broken wing,
unable to fly the same.

Happy with, 
the first one,
that shows her,
the attention, 
she desperately needs.

He bounds her wing,
but the little bird,
no longer sings,
her savior,
has turned mean.

She tries to fly away,
but...Read More

The Good, the Bad, and the Special
Loving others is my hope and compassion.
Helping and giving hope to someone else gives me satisfaction.
My heart is filled with love, and not one ounce of discrimination.
Being a role model to others is a huge one of my aspirations. 

Caring...Read More

Premium Member Best Valentines Day Ever
He brought me chocolate candy.
I am allergic to chocolate.
He brought me roses.

I despise cut flowers.
Because they die 
After they are cut

He told me I knew you’d love this.
Whipping out a T-shirt I would never wear.
He must have me mixed up...Read More

If I Could
If I

Could even write a song
It would not be very long

Just Short and Sweet
Not very neat
And probably incomplete


If I 

Could be a James Bond Spy
And live my life high in the sky

Waiting for you to tweet
Now wouldn't that be really...Read More

Spare a thought
Middle of the road,
or somewhere in between,
Over and beyond,
is where I should’ve been,
Living in the undergrowth 
Staying more or less unseen 
Now a piece of roadkill,  
belly up hasbeen. 
As you drive on by,
Spare a thought for me.

Gently held in the palm of a child's open hand

Cute and round with wings to fly
Orange with black polka dots that jive
She crawls onto the child's fingers

Knock knock knock
Knock, knock, knock!
A lover at the door
The other adjust his clothes
The handle turns their hearts

An eye on the peephole
The handle breaks apart

A lover in a gaol

Max is five and bossy beyond compare.
Stand there, he orders me. 
No. There!  Right there!

I am the pitcher and the outfield. No surprise.

Premium Member Fun Days With Dick and Jane
With a resourceful and older brother,
My early childhood was so much fun,
Such as being drawn in his red wagon,
And sledding in the late winter sun!

I miss you, Landon
I miss you, won't see 
you for two years.
I miss your smile and
the sound of your voice.

You always make me 
smile and laugh when 
i'm sad, you have always 
been my favorite cousin,
nothings the same without you.

Alas, dear Birkenstocks!
In a closet left, surely not because of theft.
Buried under a pyramid of your shoe sisters and brothers.
Rykas, Easy Spirit, Keds, Alegria and Crocs of course!
All those comfy wear from which I shall never divorce!

Premium Member Testing the Water

Allowing every sense the sensation
absorb it all, at once, even the cost
to gain naught, in spite of observation
mindful of the deceit, dignity lost

Chin in the air, being boastful, always
caring not, seems the fate of everyone
blinded by devious words, twisted ways
