My window pane performs its winter show
as silver specks of ice begin to seed.
Hundreds of tiny pins now grow and grow
and one lengthens to form a dagger blade.

Then from the hilt a shiny sword soon grows
and on each edge there...Read More

Flackmoth on Nudes
Flackmoth is not one to provoke feuds
with anyone who has a thing for nudes,
and though he’s far from prudish
he’d like to see a few less nudish.
(He’s of the view that the imagination
titillates far better by suggestion.)

First on his list is...Read More

In The Shadow Of Love

Her soft porcelain white skin, showed little after all these years
No more skipping for her as she now slowly ascends the stairs

Her husband now long gone photo sits beside their empty bed
Nights alone gave her time...Read More

I sit there inconsolable, she tells me that our life
Is devoid of happiness, does not want to be my wife
To me it's come from nowhere, I am just so bemused
The cause of my anxiety, is that I am confused

At church on Sunday night, 
I went to worship God. 
At least to stand with others, 
and lift my hands and bend my knees. 

This was not what I expected?
This was not what I thought would be?
There was no one...Read More

I'm going to sea in a blueberry boat

I’m going to sea in a blueberry boat,
macaroon waves I will sail
Far past the girls and the buoys I’ll float,
maybe spout off to a whale

My crew at the ready but still half a sleep,
I’ll have to turn on the charm

Are yesterday's newspapers re-hashed.
People really do love us as we are.
And what do regrets serve us?
These squiggly thoughts of loss?

We only have today to live,
Enjoy it to the hilt.
And remember all the good you have done,
For these .....God surely will.

My knife that thickens to the hilt to savage your eternal guilt,
Your wound that bleeds an endless truth for stealing my innocent youth.
What of your pain that strikes you now,
The fights, the beatings, endless rows,
Don’t look to me for your...Read More

Three Ice-Dragons of Zaath Are Faring South
Three Ice-Dragons of Zaath, are faring South,
They strip the landscape barren of all Love.
Each holds a lifeless Champion in its mouth,
Each imitates the wolf, and mocks the Dove…

Beware their icy maws, their shepherds’ clothing,
For they can shift their shady forms,...Read More

Our travelled world's gained dark blue hue of forgotten hope
Staining from fingertips to soul with painful memories to hilt
Beneath silent night's silhouette absorbing each moment's crumbling fragile solace

Of war's inanely senseless blade, now dulled,

Balancing the Scale
When I was young, I had a toy
That was an adding scale.
You hung the plastic numbers
'Til equality you'd nail.

Of course, it only worked
If what you added was correct.
Two twos would balance out a four;
A five it would deflect.

With age I've...Read More

Adaaba - Inculpation

submerged in marshy waters
she mused furiously
rotating the blades 
while massaging the hilt 
silently hopeful 
as the timing is crucial
marching to deluge 
the seemingly matching threat
alluring destiny to the test
the stage has been set
striding unhonoured 
strapping humor
fastened in an...Read More

Chaos in Laos
Looked up and down, right and left
Wondering why life suffers a theft
Subtracted beauty from my chin cleft
If I deserved and preserved the best
My love could lavish to attest
Why my love passed a preset test
Under dodgy durations of circumstances

Cast Aside
My heart grew feeble and I fell,
enraptured by illusion's spell.
My fingers lost their grasp - the hilt!
The sword has fallen; blood has spilt. 

And it seemed so sweet to give it up,
in exchange for passion's cup.
Drunk, I stumbled to the...Read More

Stand for your beliefs

But defend to the hilt the values

Where values and beliefs are a factor

fickle finger of fate
Preterists want back their laurels lost, fingers crossed.
Predators pray for their ruling permanence at the rest's cost, fingers crossed.

A World Torn To Pieces
