Let me throw off this winter coat and put on my raincoat and galoshes;
I love your blue skies and even rain showers that clean the earth,
Delightful spring flowers are...Read More

Tin Pan
Blood to heaven and blood on the post.
Severed builder's head in the oven.
Slowly cooking to a succulent roast.
Enraptured by the local witches coven.
What happens now is anyone's guess.
His body wanders angrily wanting a job.
Will he communicate with Rudolf Hess?
And delicately...Read More

Incumbent onus to stem tide of global warming
Plethora of humans (think overpopulation)

(*The Gift)
This here is a side trip, nothing more,
To our country home far and away.
Grandparents own one by the seashore,
This a gift, gramps in-law and mentor,
They raised teen/gramps, not a runaway.

Gramps helped older sis and him, farming.

Premium Member Ode to Autumn
“Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” By John Keats

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness
Autumn comes with light rain and fallen leaves,
Shorter days, chills but lots of blessedness.
As pretty doves shelter under the eaves,

We sit on benches admiring the lake,
Some birds...Read More

This is what I've always feared the most
Have to be quiet, these demon's are close
Gotta get to where I'm going & get there fast
Running short on time...Read More

Flight 007
On a foggy Halloween Night,
007 took its final flight.
A strike of lightning,
was so frightening.
The moon was full, it wasn't crescent.
The wolves were howling, it wasn't pleasant.
007 was out of sight.
It disappeared in the fog, that night....Read More

Place Of Misery
Where were you when i needed you the most?
Where were you when I needed comfort from home?
Clearly it is not anymore
Clearly it is desolate in it's bitter groans

Both mother's have abandoned me I see
Never shall I return to them,

People dressed as ghosts and goblin!

“Painted faces with blood and tooth”

I see America in majestic mountain ranges, lush vegetation and sandy shores.
I see her in gold fields blending into deserts and the Rockies of her Southwest

Unicorns, witches, hippies, faerie pirates too.
Interspersed among dragons, bunnies, a castle of blue.
Ghostly apparitions that say how do you do?
Strewn around the living room, my art so woo-woo.
Psychedelic colors amazing, and I don’t mean a few.
Come see for yourself. They...Read More

Down the pike, seasonal traps,
and festive lures trundle in,
weave ways through orange barrels,
past Red Lobster’s neon’s
a surf and turf backwash of traffic.
Pumpkins drop dead gradually.

Bedside Halloween costumes,
seams worn to a frazzle, no longer dazzle.  
Yet we cheer for the...Read More

There is a Snake in my Bed,

'Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the house
We heard father singing
He'd got rather soused.

Mother tut-tutted 
At his yuletide cheer
He yelled "merry christmas"
Then chugged down a beer.

He stood on our cat
Who then shot up the tree
We fell about laughing
