The top of my head is a barren landscape
where once stood stocks of auburn hair.
And yet, some scattered strands
still sprout here and there, above a fussy hedge
edging a closely cropped terrain.
Further down, you'll come across
a weathered forehead, with long furrows

Hoggish Hypnotism
Hideous hank hoisted
smoothened scrunched sculpted 
tactic turn twisting 
scared surges skipping 
smithereens into span
contracted turbulent trance

vile vibed passion
inflected per punctures 
birthed by seizures

damped draws drooping 
growling gaunt gaiety 
lanky lust lurching 

ensconced eyes envisaged
weary lids wakes.

5,438 steps into madness

Exaggeration
An astonishing use of words,
Penned by writers from best schools,
Making writer sage, clown, or fool.
Exaggeration!  Oh! Yes. Yes.

The muddy river was bone dry.

Premium Member Nature's Cello


Nature's divided into four seasons 
each eye-catching in a similar way
and yet, different for many reasons.

Winter's crystalline beauty carries sway
but She is both barren and deathly cold
with a hollowed-out heart of papier-mache.

Spring’s spectacle slowly breaks Winter’s hold
accompanied by a moist...Read More

Years on the rack.

Box upon box.
The unburied dead. The hatchet.
Littering my surroundings
The casings of a former life
The scorched earth. The salt.
The endless devastation.

All Hallows' Eve is a spooky scary night
the gates of hell open and demons roam free;
the moon glows with an orange tinge to its light
and evil monsters feed on hyperbole.

The Trios
Lofty crafts of sensational creations, 
Oily traits dripping affections
Vulnerable hearts somersaulting
Evisaging allusive hyperbole. 

Damped dance, complex steps
Elating destruction with a breath
Acreage littered with confetti of gloom
Tainted trails, dainty doom
Hood hoisted, deep-six in hell.

Premium Member To Fall in Love
To fall in love, and madly so,
Is there a greater thing than this?
Wars were fought for lesser things—
Might I battle for a kiss?

No hill too steep to try;

Auras all aglow
angels of the street
helping those they meet,
cast a long shadow.

Rivers that still flow
cold and crystal clear
where fish persevere,

The duck-billed platypus

Why, its anatomy defies

Entering The Perfect Partner
Let´s meet the happy-go-lucky man;
full-blooded,
neither craven nor valiant,
taking life as it comes with a touch of indifferent air,
good-humored, easy-going,
careless and not jealous.
Just It wouldn´t be bad to beam him a bit of mundane grandeur to be a perfect partner.

Illusive Shutterbug

She works behind a camera
and sees what others can't see.
She turns ordinary into mystical
and fiction into reality.

She doesn't just see with her eyes, 
she sees with her heart and soul.
She makes magic with light and moon beams,
she makes things...Read More
