Premium Member Out of Time
It was a beautiful day for a picnic in the park,
We all thought we would stay there until dark.

Just enjoying the peace of a late summer bliss,
Like a departing lover engages you with a kiss!

We lunched on good food, and...Read More

Come hither and discard your heavy armor
and cleanse your hands of thine enemies blood
think not of war, or the carnage you reaped
rest your blooded sword outside my door
Come hither by my fire and rest your weary soul

I’ve never felt this way before.
The joy comes from the depths of my soul.
I don’t know how to explain this feeling.
It’s a feeling that is beyond words of description.

I’ve never imagined so much passion from the heart.
It’s almost like I’ve...Read More

You make me feel like dreams…

Like the moment that we met…
Ended all my worst strife.

The Whirlpool
Waking up and shaking up
Running up for the daily dose 
Drying up is every rose
Dying up is every rose
Drugs and thugs ruining lives 
Selling smiles and all knives 
It's not to give you joy 
It's mere a deathful toy

Premium Member The Day I Danced in Puerto Rico
Dancing in time, bringing in the heartfelt holiday 
Wafts of women in full traditional costume of Puerto Rico
Gyrating in the streets, teasing the crowd with their prowess
From old to young, they make their point in colorful garb.

Premium Member Love Needs to Be Nurtured

Love needs at least sixty-five thousand words 
Because her feelings go into so many directions
Ending up sometimes in the wrong places,
Turning into another feeling entirely
Jealousy is not love
Control? Certainly not

Love needs to be released from her cave.
She needs to be...Read More

Premium Member The Dimension of Love
On a balmy evening, I was out enjoying a walk,
Admiring the flowers and scenery on my block;

Moonlight poured, and nobody else was about,
Because I had become restless, I had gone out.

Fireflies were dancing, reminiscently green,
As roses recall to mind the...Read More

Journey to the Wildflower Plains
Take me away
To the open plains
Where the winds and
Wildflowers play.
Open and free
Just you and me
Feeling the high
Of a strong steady breeze.
Up, up way up high
We fly free like kites
And soar with eagles
Til clouds are nigh.
And when our trip is done
We’ve...Read More

Dreamer weaves 
her golden words
like breath brought
her into a new world
each chord held 
she remembers holding 
the constellation
Virgo in her arms 
in time small windows
open midnight blue
glistening jade
they reign over her
a Lion whispering 
the oddest nursery rhymes, 
lullabies she's remembering

Living won’t be yours if you are dead
Sunny days wouldn’t be a blessing to you 
If it is cloudy
Joy wouldn’t be so happy if there is doubt
Seeing won’t be your sight
If it wasn’t for the dark
Walking won’t benefit if
You had...Read More

Sixteen and lonely,
a young bird, 
has gone lame,
from her broken wing,
unable to fly the same.

Happy with, 
the first one,
that shows her,
the attention, 
she desperately needs.

He bounds her wing,
but the little bird,
no longer sings,
her savior,
has turned mean.

She tries to fly away,
but...Read More

Waiting in silence for the cosmos to begin

The Show from Death Row
Eye for eye; tooth for tooth,
Age old key to old hitch,
Justice’s way; known from youth,
Consciences’ vexing itch.

Few know death’s row bower,
Lowly know its bare scene, 
Some escape through power,
Rich blood trumps poor man genes.

Time goes in ticks and tocks,
Hits midnight...Read More
