Down the Primrose Path

Beautiful and pleasant  summer evening
away from the madness among the yawing 
breath of brilliant sunset. Slow ease moving 
lilac mood of twilight, welcomes me dreaming.
Lost in my steps, neglecting to listen to
my inner wisdom, knowing the...Read More

Premium Member how quaint it is
it's like a norman rockwell photo
this quaint little town not far away
where white picket fences stand
banners and flags wave in the breeze
every lamppost tells a tale
of their proud, unforgotten heroes
 faces and stories reclaimed
on the same streets they once roamed
it's...Read More

I was born there
in a naive village
now this is my city
I walk on the city path

now I walk by the royal path
like the mouth of a hungry child

there suddenly the piece of onion
shows me the path of cost living

I'm in...Read More

Love, to you
nothing more than washed away graffiti, 
once dripping along the 
mismatched bricks of this worn facade
where tattoos mean forever . . .
even when they fade

A clutched lamppost, 
scarred and dented, a fake shade of green
meant only for leaning

Premium Member Lamppost Black
Don’t you see the lamppost black?
Down beside the railroad track.
It’s there, I know, I have seen it!
Many times, I’ve seen it lit.

It does come out in the night.
It is not there in the light.
Go down by, and see it there.

you eloped with Death, but knew Her not
My dearest brother...

Reach out! Hope is before thee!
But your hand is cold, and unmoving...
without a second thought, you have fallen into a dead sleep.

Dream, my friend. Dream well.

your eyes wanted sleep, your heart was old, riddled with rusty bullets...

Sensing the atmosphere for omens.
Signs of impending, cusp and verge.
I ping and curl, scrape to drudge up-
internal program and hit send 
and hope for good vibes return "not the end."

I have become a lightless diode.
A buzzing lamppost in the neighborhood

Abandoned Child
Your walk 
Through the wild urban path 
Under lampposts trees.
In vain you travel questioning 
The meanders of your grief.

The slimy paving 
Of a deserted gallery 
Echoes your steps of suffering 
On the silent columns 
Of a gothic front.

Slow the foot...Read More

The Construct Of Lamppost

The twilight gleam slowly melts
on the verdant expanse of the park,
the pathway lined by neon lampposts
gets deserted as the night silently falls.

Soon I see the maroon moon rise
over the thicket in the speckled sky
and sparkling stars sprout one by one,
I...Read More

Big Marty Milano

Blue-veined sausage nose
slightly off center
toward the right side of
a florid cop face
white-gloved hands
directing traffic
to the piercing rhythm
of staccato blasts from
the black wooden whistle
clenched between his teeth

everyone called him
Big Marty Milano and
he conducted a busy
three street confluence
of automobiles pedestrians...Read More

Premium Member A LONE POEM
When a poem is so lone—
It gives an image of an old painting that
Hangs on the wall with loving reverence,
The lone poem has its own attraction in its
Delights and sadness and whatever around!
It revives passion and integrity from despair,
It regenerates...Read More

Opened door and window
My dissected chest on the top floor of building 
I philandered with moon lit just once 
Dim light was over there for a while
Vague all around the sleeping town
I laid in paralyzed body and enthralled-
With my drunkard...Read More

I Grew Up In Bath
I grew up in Bath in the nineteen nineties
wearing short shorts over tighty whities,
while Bath were champions of English Rugby,
a beautiful city farfetched from ugly.

We played on Stilts and had Yo-Yo's,
skateboards with logo's,  
Tamagotchi's, Slinkys and Pogo Sticks,
a string...Read More

The night seemed ominous

Premium Member I rest no more
In my great room I relax 
Starring at my surroundings
The lighten curio shelters 
Trinkets of horses and dolphins 
Atop the curio 
A Brazilian lady of porcelain 
Sitting shirtless, her head rests in her palm 
Beside her on center wall 
Painted...Read More

By the lamppost at night
with the pale moon shining bright
but obscured by the fog
I saw her in the harbor
standing where my boat lay moored
but she knew that
her azure eyes beckoned me to come
smoke from a cigarette in her hand
trailing...Read More

Soaked street reflects in silence,
puddles absorb paint,
memories of movement, still
moonglow of a saint.
Hushed squeals of a child -
lamppost relaxes. No boots
splashing midnight. mild.

Mom’s garden  blushed with flowers on our lawn
Recalling youth’s  zest of fancy-free tread:
I stand  here by an old lamppost , in thought
And imagine dewed clusters overhead.

Where treetops glow with...Read More

Rhythmic ripples of an h2o body,
  smooth saunter of disciplined legs,
    shadow in the dark, headless apparition.
      umbrella held steady, with a dustless glove.

Pounding heart of fear or curiosity.

The Lamppost
It is but a light,
a break within the night
a shadow of a sun;
and there on the sidewalks edge it's rooted
guiding, praying for our path
following, staying with out drive
lighting the way as if to say:
I am here and you are there

He loved, She did too
He spoke in languages,
She has never heard,
Loved her in ways,
She didn't understand.

He dreamed of her at night,
Sparkling like diamond light,
Concquering his lonely heart,
With a mere touch he got.

He saw them together,
Walking under the moonlight,
Calling her his lover,
Kissing under the lamppost.

A Tramp's Quest
White little rice so fresh and sweet,
long, long threads made of wheat.

The water fall down my lips,
when they munch you crunchy chips.

I watch standing away,
when on giant supper they all prey.

My rags make me realise,
I'll be thrown away by rich...Read More

What Is Love
Warm breezes flow on another cloudless night 
past her second story lattice balcony window 
a silhouette dances in the painted moonlight 
and against that dim lit lamppost I lean 
dreaming of dancing beside her 
but blind visions hold me back...Read More
