Except your proposal
Might those we love than
Find it appeasing and perfect
Might togetherness keep us
And might love
Make those tentions
Beyond the nights might
Mornings began days
Of harmonic and joyfilled
What disturtions of those days

Premium Member A King And His Money
If the King is in debt again,
We must open the privy purse,
A profligate king is a curse,
It has been thus throughout his reign.

It puts us all under a strain,
And God knows, it is getting worse,
Why must the man be so...Read More

They met by the old jarrah tree
As the sun was about to set,
A meeting they would not forget,
A future they could not foresee.

"Dearest, you must listen to me!
I swear to you that I regret
Having incurred this dreadful debt -
All I...Read More

Premium Member A Viennese Waltz

A Viennese waltz, seamless and sublime...
We move as one, adrift on heaven's floor;
and, though my knees go weak, sky-high I soar!
Each measured stride defies a need for time.
Within its reign, we actualize our climb -
impassioned flames, no longer keeping score,...Read More

Rome Greece and China love a quatrain.
Four stanzas is how it has to be.
Stingy poets only give us three.
This one is Italian from my brain.

Premium Member Where Evil Creeps
An eerie silence wrapped the bog,
I dared not move nor speak.
The chilling blanket of the fog
where evil beings creep,
conceals within tormented souls 
now stirring from their sleep,
and there with gruesome fate foretold
lie secrets they will keep.
Into the darkest night they...Read More

I wonder at what lesson had been taught 
abandoning the gift I longed for most...
In every dream conceived, you held me close. 
And now each tear I cry seems all for naught; 
mere remnants, never noticed, shared, nor caught,
nor tasted,...Read More

Premium Member Composed on 23 September 2019, This First Day of Autumn
On this gay morn, the first day of autumn,
I reflect.—Thanks be to God! For how strange
that I've, like a pilgrim, traveled life's range, 
and have survived its dark snares, unlike some:
thus, I am grateful that I have overcome! 
At this...Read More

Premium Member The Useless Chase

Addicted to romance, I’ve tried in vain
to resurrect the unrestrained delight
I felt so long ago one summer night -
excitement of the type no one can feign.
I had it once, and I could not abstain
from tasting it. It made my soul...Read More

Education and motivation
I think it is okay not to be the brightest bulb in the tool shed.
And I know I would only use that phrase in self assessment.

I love you but I don’t know why.
I love your lips which seem too thin
for a kind person, your grey-green
deceitful eyes which are too dry
and too unmerciful to cry
for broken hearts. I love your skin
which chilly whiteness is akin
to fallen...Read More

Mincemeat Tarts
Me mother used to make a mince-meat tart,
Old country way, with loads of shredded meat!
Can’t say, I liked it, till the second bite!
And then, the taste caught you… there was an art
To making tarts that waited to surprise
They took three...Read More

In my bedroom the three of us all high:

We three are,...Read More

If you turn out to be right, at the end,

my Christian name in scribble/cursive blend

Premium Member Clearing the Cupboard
My only thought on love resembles this:
From such a distance I was nearly there,
I watched a couple strip each other bare.
They did a shot and shared a slobbered kiss,
and it was smooth and it went down like bliss.
He was the...Read More

The way this day carries on, one might think
it invalid, paralyzed from neck down,
wheelchair bound, unable to roll around

Or, maybe it wishes for not to sink,
but to shadow itself to a moonless...Read More

I’ve got no beef with McDonald’s or Jack

with greasy sacks in thin hospital gowns.

six thousand calorie corpulent noun

She’s the self-diagnosed bi-polar type.

Upon Ancient Skies


It was love at first sight,
With smile that wins her eyes,
Like a diamond, hanging in a crystal night.

With love so sudden and so sweet, delight,
Her heart, like spring upon the ancient skies,
It was love at first sight.

The red-throat trawled me to a shanghaied shore
then left me raw in split-sedated state.
A sense of morning meant the lamp lit late

And how I prayed...Read More

For God and country, swaying toe to line.

Tides that rise; too must fall to sculp their shores.
