That space she creates
as kissing knees separate
desperate flicking tongue
begging for a taste
craving access to her secret place
slowly legs part
and fingers entwine my hair
pushing deeper
kissing moistened lips
tip of tongue slips
nectar cave
tongue snakes deeper
knees holding head in place
musk washing face
legs tremble

The body language of my dog, about his only way
To tell me what is going on, and how he spent his day
He smiles at me and shows his teeth, it goes against the grain
He knows I do it when I'm...Read More

Today I will do
some shopping;
just some things
that are needed--
lifelines like coffee
brandy and beer;
and some things
that I don’t need;
those things that
jump out at you,
grab you by the
arm, shake you
with their graphics
and aromas…

Of course, I will
come back with
things I don’t need:

with memories of
Grandma’s beauty shop

piles of books.

my merry-go-round spree

Toss this poem aside
to the filigree and the wild tide
of sunset.

Strike my name,
and still it is all the same.
The onset

of night is in the despairing skies;
each hut shuts its bright bewildered eyes.
The wind sighs

and my heart sighs...Read More

So that your heart calms down and comes to rest.

I want to hold your hand and caress you lightly.

Then I watch you just lying there mighty.

I want to stroke your hair and...Read More

Light Born Of Darkness
Light Born Of Darkness
by Dylan Williamson

New life is beautiful
Young and pure and innocent
Nothing as irrefutable
Nothing as magnificent
Newborns bald without a single hair
Eyes turning to their final color
Skin, soft and smooth and fair
Even if they may be a bawler
Eyes so bright...Read More

Image in a Mirror

She sits all alone in her bedroom tonight,
and stares in the mirror while dreaming her dreams;
she thinks to herself in the soft evening light,
and wonders why she has no friends so it seems.

Perhaps it’s because of her...Read More

Premium Member Cellophane Crystal Ocean Faerie
Mystical crystal ocean faerie arrived the first time wearing light blue.
Quite a sight against a giant wave, mimicking the ocean’s frothy hue.
Staring ahead, totally unafraid, standing on swirly finned trout three,
Observers understood immediately there was no other faerie like she.

Little jellyfish was jealous of the fish and the coral
Especially the sea horse ridden by mermaid Laurel
She was by far the prettiest siren in the blue sea
He dared not touch her, but he loved her truly.

Pouring down rain drenching the night

With one knock, light from within

Embarrassed from what I said

Your eyes travel the moon lit nights

Deep breaths deep inside the apple’s core

Alas, t'would mean the words would weep
Alone in unconstructed phrase
Hanging fruit ne'er to be picked
Nor fall to seed again.

To plow shares love of peace
No flower passed to maiden fair
To adorn the flax of wind blown...Read More

when i

first saw
you your
hair was
in a wrap

almost seeming
African in the

was there hidden
a tumbling down
lost treasure that
i found or was she

bald but that never
phased me because
i saw her face without
make up yet made to be

simple purity of
poetry in motion

Mesmerized by the vibrant pastels surrounding her

When I go behind my mind
Am I wanting to explore?
Will I like what I find
Of all my life that's gone before?

All the things I've tried to hide,
All the choices right or wrong,
Are they waiting there inside
Like some half-forgotten song?

And there...Read More

Sue loved to style her auburn hair, 
and adorn it with a cute bow.
Then cancer struck, life’s so unfair -
treatment meant her long locks would go. 

She hoped in time new hair would grow, 
as baldness may cause folk to stare....Read More
