Premium Member Loretta's Petals
brushed a rose across your stone
the wind refrained- in fragrant moan
today, a sad clump of crimson petals
pressed between wax sheets
into long shadows of memory...
this wayward heart drifting about
over the landfill of living
like a famished sea gull-

Minor Damage

A cat runs across the road,
then a rabbit, then a deer.
I look left, a barn is airborne,
it flies away in slow motion,
boards silently flapping.

We have a deductible of $400, you say.
A gull rolls over the hood, sea-legs
scrambling over smooth metal.

The Happy Fisherman
Sailing with my true blue friend,
Every wave was a new lesson to learn
Every storm, a new chapter to open;

Listening to its deep voice,
Every story was a reverie to follow
Every silence a whisper of love;

Guided by the wind of my destiny,
Every...Read More

Premium Member so far from the sea this gull flies
he skimmed this gelid air
on a gossamer breath
ascending then descending 
adrift like my wishes

perhaps he was lost
like i in my unspoken thoughts
just wanting to be anywhere
other than where he should be

i closed my eyes
on his wings
aloft on dreams
as i spiraled

Premium Member My Kind Of Day At The Beach
At the beach, digging beneath the pier
harvesting minute shells;
sharks teeth and all sorts of goodies; 
I make jewelry you see; Cowrie earrings paired
exclusively with brown Tiger-Eye; a tasty treasure, 
eye candy of a semi-precious nature.

Naticas, Tulips, Conch’s and Crown’s
paired with...Read More

Night on the Beach

A mottled crab scuppers its sea legs
in fluorescent foam.
Blue pods rattle on green tides.
Bladder wrack, Mermaid’s Hair
washing tangled ankles.
There are voices in my open mouth,
they roll over a briny tongue,
intone words from the breath
of spray and brume.
Where the sky hangs,...Read More

The Pictish Faeries
Smaller and darker
than their closest kin,
the faeries learned only too well
never to dwell
close to the villages of larger men. 

Only to dance in the starlight
when the moon was full
and men were afraid.
Only to worship in the farthest glade,
ever heeding the...Read More

Arthurian Poems
At Tintagel

That night, 
at Tintagel, 
there was darkness such as man had never seen...
darkness and treachery, 
and the unholy thundering of the sea...

In his arms, 
who is to say how much she knew? 
And if he whispered her name...

Where once I saw the sun
flare like a peacock,
fish bones hiss
on a shale whipped beach,
banshee’s are dredged from sandy graves,
spume slaps nests of air.

Waves boom inside my beached ribs.
I am so full of sadness
that I hear myself mew

Premium Member Ocean
I sit on a rock
Looking faraway
Where the ocean meets the sky
Forming a huge circle

I hear 
The sand gently
Lapped by waves

A gull flies by
Glancing at me with a smile
Seeming to say
Isn’t ocean vast and beautiful?

Years ago, no it looks scruffy old age had
Taken its toll and shrieking seagulls above
Sensed its weakness and had no mercy

A blind flight
above a brooding sea.
Dawn levers the darkness.
Ireland rising.
Whitecaps, bright tumbled cliffs.
Briny turf, moss-rooted walls,
wind-havens and cottages.
So green!
Tidal meadows run to dewy swards.
Patchwork pastures knitted to bogs.
Then the sodden towns,
oyster shell gables glisten like new peat.
Verdant hills raise rocky...Read More

 Have grown rapidly in the last few days
Today they are out flapping their wings
Not quite daring to fly.

A warning, but it could also have...Read More

"The Eagle has landed”

Black Sheep 

Her beleaguered parents, had it 
with her.
That daughter and her mouth,
forever causing a mighty stir!
They went to downtown
To see Dr.Zhivago, hoping this 
might quiet her.
But no, in their daughter, it was 
more like an intellectual stir.

The night is calm and shimmers

All captains pull cold, old mainlands.
Never a valley.
The lad rises like a warm moon.
Ooh, desolation!

 is a big gull.
Reefs like small shores.
Gulls travel!
The stormy sail fights the sailor.
 grow like big captains.
