The Irony Is
Honeybee
you say you are 
just one of many -
but you help 
my flowers grow
and you always
sweeten my day

you say your song 
is just ordinary -
but your melody
makes my heart sing
while the sky
is still dark

You Never Come
You never come when I need you
You never come when I am thinking about you
Your never come when the sun is hot
You never come when I am gallivanting in my pretty frock.

I saw someone today wearing a hard white hat

Premium Member In search of love's end
Did you ever love someone madly, though never fully understanding why?
Untrained for such distress, when they touched your hand.
You shared a few days in the morning Sun, and loved on warm nights.

I would bring you the moon and stars if...Read More

REMINISCING ON A CHILDHOOD

I have never once considered myself, unlucky, in anyway
I’m still very grateful for what I have had back in the day

All those childhood memories; of feeling safe and secure
Within the folds of my parents, I could grow...Read More

In the black forests of my mind,
Where the seeds of experience 
Have become the trees of memory,
Searching those dark woods I find

Too many trees have aged in shame,
Standing grey and gaunt before me,
Muttering from leaf to leaf
Their morbid curses on...Read More

My Plight

Fair enough,
Step out in the sun if you must;
Keep your head covered with a wet cloth.
The heat of the Indian Summer
Can be extreme, very exhausting,
Worse than the desert heat, you can say,
A person often loses his wits and brain.
For many...Read More

They were stoned out of their bodies and mind at Stonehenge

Climbed over the fence and enjoyed the Cromlech’s shadows

Razor wire would not prevent their midsummer night dream

Of being one with the moon which spilled light into their souls

Eclipsed by ultimate...Read More

Premium Member Freja - The Farmer's Wife

Days knife is in night’s sheath
The moon's eye is covered.
She sits over their scattered bones
Feeling only the cold dirt
And the swirling fog.
Her hand grips for the hilt
And she hears the singing blade.
The flails are only for threshing now,
Passions are muted.

The old man sat on a bench. He watched the fountain water flow.
The pigeons gathered at his feet, he couldn’t feed them so off they would go. 

He listened as the water sang it’s song, as he closed his eyes...Read More

Sins of a Father

While younger we were running, to what we did not know.

But as we grew in knowledge and taller by the day

Thank you my brother, for spending time with me.
A greeting with a hug, your scars laid bare to see

We scream up at the heavens, lecturing God on what is fair
When our lives took us one way, when we wanted to be there.

Simply Beautiful
If I were a rose and had to compose
A verse on how you make me feel,
I’d have to say in such a way
With an analogy of something real.
This is how it would go;

Said the blooming rose to the
Sunlight of spring,

Dear Suicide
Dear Suicide

If you were standing with me,
as in a person or a thing.
I’d beat you, 
and I don’t just mean to win.
I’d beat you till you begged me, 
and then I’d beat you more.
Until your bones broke through your skin,...Read More

Heaven's Light: A Loving Memory of my Uncle, Paul Murray
Heaven’s light shines brighter today
And its gates are opened extra wide
They’re preparing for another angel
To be seated by God’s side.
The trumpets blow louder
And the angel’s voices ring higher
Our hearts grow ever heavier as
Your final day with us grows nigher.

Tallest of trees stand, sentinels, as if touching the sky
Reaching out, each branch, every limb, oh so very high
Species of every kind, vying for what nature will provide
Sunlight, rain, seasons changing, renderings glorified 

Growing from a seedling, nature takes her...Read More

We always wondered what would matter;
Should set standard and records shatter;
Have no fear;

Never grow fatter  and be a great batter.

when more about freedom toward mutual dialogue,

Oh, how beautiful the vale now seen in a glorious sight.
A small rill tumbled down the hill and no wind blew.

A Ghostly Mystic Hand
While looking out my window

I see the changing of the leaves
As I kneel down to pray

He put upon the trees
A kaleidoscope of color
For all the world to see

 Tiny faeries in snapdragon beds,
crying, wailing to be fed,
on the nectar brought by bees,
from the nearby hills of green.

Tiny newborns with great hair,
will learn to walk, with great care.
They’ll flit and fly to worlds unseen,
by human eyes, when they...Read More
