Premium Member Juggernaut
When I read the wiki's definition
of juggernaut* as a fierce
and ruthless force, I shrug.

When I see the face of Jagannatha,
full of eyes, smiling at me,
I cannot but smile back.

When I think about his younger sister,
lovely Subhadra, I sigh

Premium Member Cracks In The Facade
chaos elements of normality
insects buzzing in lamp dome
reveals alluring mouths

he breathes out a photographic desire
the contact lenses pops out
caught in pink mesh stockings

black curls colored bluish by the sunlight
like the children's drawn doodles
no shiny surfaces

CRACKS IN THE FACADE
Standing tenaciously despite strong quakes
fortress of hope projects bliss  
succouring the needy. 

Buttressed steadfastly by God’s grace and truth*
anchoring the wavering
faith ascends midst good works…

...Yet when lurking haughtiness grips the heart
hypocrisy dominates 
unveiling facade’s cracks.

Cracks In The Facade
Bright ,cheerful,jovial is his visage
You sense a fragile sadness
Belied by his soft smile

In  quieter mood his face relaxes
Worry lines fragment his calm
Tears threaten like raindrops

The pent up  dam now  bursts,his bulwark gone
Broken,beaten and bereft
A sad shell of...Read More

Premium Member UNDERCURRENT OF MELANCHOLY
Her husband passed away so suddenly
she pastes a smile on her face ...
heartache is kept inside

Three young children miss their daddy so much,
she tries to make fun filled days ... 
life just has to go on

Cracks In The Facade
I first saw her face framed by Spanish moss
Beneath the oaks of Georgia -
Beauty beyond compare

Her golden hair crowned the deepest blue eyes
That stared beyond my presence -
Her lips frozen and cold 

Fascinated I continued to stare
Her eyes at last...Read More

Premium Member To The Ends Of The Earth
What if you went to the ends of the earth,
And did not like what you found?
Would it be worth your time?

Mystique may be a mistake,
That fellow you followed may be a fake,
Blinding you with his charm.

Why bother chasing him -

Premium Member Undercurrent of Melancholy
disconsolate flow of cascading woe
resonates in my aura-
for I am despondent 

implicated in melancholic fears;
visceral scars, my zenith-
apathetic spirit

mediocre ways of my days somber,
feeding the grimace pain wears-
undercurrent echoes

Premium Member A Gnawing Temptation
His eyes still make me think of the sunrise
That color blue like sapphire
Hypnotizing my mind

He reminds me of kisses long and soft
tender caring in a heart
filling up my spirit

He makes me want to touch him once again
intimacy whispering
sensations thrive inside

Premium Member Market Day
It is village Market Day,
Lots of wares on display,
Folks milling about with money to pay.

Fresh vegetables and fruit,
Anything that may suit,
And somewhere someone is playing a flute.

Jam and preserve stalls as well,
Whose presence one can tell
By the delicious emanating smell.

Premium Member The End Of A Day
Darkness falls; precious moments fade to black
as sleep shuts my weary eyes.
The end of the day nigh.

My wants, needs and expectations all rest
snuggly beneath my pillow...
where they'll peacefully sleep.

So goodnight, moon, and all the stars that shine.
So long to all...Read More

As the year approaches spring,
All nature's joys will be on offering,
Wild flowers blossoming,
And soon the season will bring
The usual big fling
On the day of Cup racing.
This year I plan to back a new young thing
That is grey in colouring:

The felling
Where branches once stretched out their leafy arms,
stark truncated silhouettes
now scar the twilight sky

Premium Member Seven City Pigeons
Seven pigeons sitting cold in the snow,
upon a street sign trembling;
and the snow is falling.

As if on cue they fly on snowy wings,
circling the city buildings;
till a safe ledge is found.

Beautiful they smooth their heavy feathers,
sitting quiet in the cold;

Twiggy-legged pink flamingo walks in stride
Spreads wings and flies above ground
Eats shrimp, retains its hue

For all around to see.

As she strolls out on my arm.

Rocked fence rounds tinged of moss,
Laurels languish on limbered lengths aloft,
Faithful oak blessed rays anoint.
