Not Too Short Not Too Sweet
Waking up too soon, too late. 
Maybe by six, maybe by eight.
Like life there is an ebb and flow.
But six, you need some good ol' joe.

A quarter after, on my way.
On my ass to greet the day.
You see in today's...Read More

I can’t be an angel 
As you requested 
The feather I had been saving for the past year
From the slaughtered ducks 
The dead chickens 
Chopped birds 
Boiled doves
Stray storks 
The lost flamingos 
The slain bluebells 
Poisoned peacocks
Imprisoned ostriches
The blind owls

‘Great Scott, shucks and darn, I’ve gone and lost a shoe’

Following the tumor blooms
that muted my throat and gut,
I duct taped my mind
to the wordless, I put my head down 
charging at daggers, and
thanks to pain bullets and cancer bombs
my thoughts are catching a little headwind.

I'm looking at a sea...Read More

At Peace
He had the grace of a buffalo
And the strength of a gazelle,
But he wore it comfortably
And we loved him for it.

His secret was contentment.
It empowered us all.
We were unbeaten, unwounded.

Many challenged us,
Striking below the surface
Attacking everything they valued.

We remained untouched,
Hidden...Read More

Premium Member Footsteps echo below
In my dreams
Paces a lioness
Footsteps echo below
Sensual her abode
In the jungle's glow

Ravenous, her gaze
A gazelle races by
If dinner, dismembered
Dry-bones' dissociation
Bloody cherry-pie
Dessert's constitution

The Gazelle
The Gazelle!!!

The morning cock crows
And the feeling grows
Towards the daedal damsel
With the gaze of a gazelle

She is an enigma
A portrait with dimples
The opera of the steeples
And with an accolade for charisma

In the center of my fantasy
She gives me a frenzied...Read More

Of Gazelle and Madeomoiselle 

Showed me the attic and the roof 
Netted with egg and spiderweb
The basement flooded 
Fish swam on our dirty carpet
And mold owned the walls 
Oh , how foul did it smell

Gave me the stars and the...Read More

Born of Spiritual Spasm

We can travel mindfully as with source light,
We can project our sullen spirits outward,
To a timeless harbinger, born of spiritual spasm,
Left invisibly on the shiny star of suburban Formica,
And now we are flying through the pull of...Read More

Lush crimson lips
Eyes sapphire blue
Voluminous blond curls
Exuding exotic perfume 
Her silken gown swaying
In a sensuous pirouette
The gazelle avoiding
Her predator

Premium Member Lioness Waits for Dinner

The best I could hope for was a lame or weak animal, 
limping along, not able to catch up with their tribe.
My cubs are hungry, and they like fresh blood meat.
A young antelope or gazelle would be perfect!

POTD 30th August 2018 

The gently swaying branches of the old oak should elicit calmness
And yet a sense of foreboding permeates the midnight air
Wild imaginings?  Or did shadows flit across the leaf strewn path?

The Real Tears
Those melancholic eyes and downturned lip,
Resembling not so much a whining dog
As sorrow crafted with a stagehand’s whip
Or acted by some theatre’s thespian cog,
Did glisten once with tears of salt and truth,
Conveying more the fear of a gazelle
Than mocking looks...Read More

Premium Member An Elegant Lady
Elevated and poised, exuding an air of grace

she steps smartly, in a fluid motion.

Perfectly balanced.

like a lissome gazelle on tippy toes.

Staging each step, she adds her own unique flare

 confident, yet feminine enough, to flow natural

not practiced.

With her sensual sassy...Read More

A Dream Died A Dreadful Death
Lightning and thunder did clash
In ventricles within my heart
Vying whether to lash
At every part

That feels emotions
In hearts of dames
Whose love motions and portions
Laid claims

To the indifference my heart felt
When Hazel Fidelia ended our engagement
In July nineteen seventy seven to melt

The Sanctity of A Damsel Not On Sale
Seldom mistaken
A besotted bloke in New York
In love taken and shaken
Dreaming of an infatuation stroke

Bakes in his mind
A love niche his heart to gladden
Despite the labour grind
Of the love burden

Strutting his manifesto
Under a moonlight in a tryst
That delights his toe
