Premium Member Carried away

Carried away, on a breeze meant for summer
gathering sights left alone for a while
Spreading my wings up above where shes resting
wandering free in my own empty style

Singing along with a meadowlark choir
landing a branch that is lonely of leaves
Drifting along...Read More

Premium Member Desperate wishes cast

where, in the shadow of a winter moon
beyond eternal skylines collecting stars,
does affection unfold in the sheets
of a nighttime whispering on the breeze

desperate wishes cast as stones on a pond,
smooth surfaces now laced with ripples,
spherical patterns meandering towards
a slumbering shoreline,...Read More

Far from the prodding eyes
of men and angels

she toils…

with the strength of mere men, 

amidst battalions of soldiers
she bears the world…

And then, her shoulders falling…

yet she stood, dying to all

the flickering embers of her own dreams

And broken…

she veils her scars,...Read More

yet still alive
able to breathe yet live
sun is at rest this witnessed yet
sleep now must I slumber

Premium Member Song of love


A blushing sunset calls my name
in harmonies of fond farewell
Where wishes on a pastel flame
compose the dreams I now foretell
For here among the colored skies
when whispers flit upon the wind
I gaze amidst my wandered sighs
to see you by my side...Read More

Premium Member A poem on my heart


Brought about a simple truth
as words collect the page
Offered as a shred of proof,
a testament to age

Countless whispers call the plan,
now seeking but a line
Hoping some will understand,
it happens over time

Hearts will break, the papers say
while reading through the news
Making...Read More

The stars above they shine for you
Since that dreadful day you died
Since that dreadful day I’ve cried
For my heart it almost broke in two
Looking skyward I can see

Your smile in every starlit night
Assures...Read More

Premium Member Soundly asleep


Drenched in a dream bringing life to your smile
Restful endeavors as night comes to call
Slumbering deep beneath flannelled intentions
Hugging my pillow in spite of it all

Reaching for shadows that follow a moonbeam
Lost in your arms as my heart skips a...Read More

Premium Member It's been a blast
Agedly sagedly
David F Attenborough
said we were doomed with a 
very sad face.

We dragged our knuckles round
wrapped him in plastic and
launched him to space.

The scream was enough for neighbors to hear , 
The hairs on her arm didn't stand up 
Blood dripped slower and slower warm getting hot a little to fast

If I gave you my heart on a big silver platter
would you sit with me here at the edge of the moon
Arranging the stars in a musical pattern
singing along as they whistle their tune

Then could we climb to...Read More

I see

In hopes that as they

Each star I count

Premium Member Tonight I sent a poem


Tonight I sent a poem
streaking 'cross the evening sky
Sprinkled it with stardust
so it'd glisten flying by

Wishing you would see it
when you look up where you are
To find the words "I love you"
written on a falling star

Premium Member again, just a dream

Lost in the silence where dreams now awaken,
closing my eyes to the stress of the day
Feeling alone and a little forsaken,
wishful these moments that come into play

Wondering if it is imagination,
bringing these thoughts on this evening to me
Something to quell...Read More

Our Day
A dining room table
A living room chair
A bed with a side table sitting right there
A picture you took
The drapes in a pair
With many collectibles compiled to cheer
A dish to be washed
A kettle to heed
A clock on a mantle
Striking three

In the darkness thrives 
Our inner most lives
But chances robs flies
Like winged tigerskarks

In the light swings chandeliers
Clinging dragons Shangri-La
Story pictures of passion fears
Purpose-driven  ceiling fans Mardi Gras

Darkness. dies
Light cries
No more passion rights
Dragon fly tiger shark drones
Universe shutdown

Premium Member Empty

I feel empty,
drained of emotion,
standing in this lonely field,
a desolate silhouette
of stoic expression
dreaming of yesterdays
while tomorrows wait somewhere
beyond the silent horizon
where questions lie
I have no answers for
When I see it rising
slowly in the east
as darkness finds me
like a long lost...Read More

Premium Member Drowning


Treading water,
drifting on jet streams
above setting suns,
reaching below to find that existence
is more than bobbing
up and down,
wishing the earth were still
as you make it move
breathing aromatic dreams,
filling my lungs with 
sweet fragrance,
as I gasp for air,
my mouth opened,
suckling taut whispers
tickling...Read More

Her love took me to a place,
the likes of which I have never seen
I was lost in the wonder that greeted me
along a pathway of stained glass tiger lilies
and hummingbirds singing in harmony

Where the beauty of the sunrise
was painted in...Read More
