Streams of clearest light,
Born of a star,
Splash across flaxen maize,
Beckoning tall sunflowers to follow
With their skyward gaze
Dashing through newborn dewdrops
Creating playful shadows
The bouncing, 
  dappling, 
    flashing, 
     flowing
Golden glow of...Read More

I Am Not A Robot Part 2
Me a zombie?
Never!
Just a viral doofus poseur,
Brainiac and hacker on the loose tapping into other genie lamps,
Wireless Stikbot floater skipping ID challenge.
Hurdles that authenticate saliva from a silicone palate.
Trojan horse webber getting kicks from pop up photos and their tick...Read More

Erotic prayers are typed like tattoos
on her virtual skin.  She clutches at this man;

prints his likeness over her tongue.  His words
are as close as a bedtime story told to her flesh.

An ethereal fruit grows ripe, nearly tactile,
hung from...Read More

There were five bridesmaids who were prudent
with lamps prepared having sufficient
   spare oil at the ready
   for lights to be steady.
The groom turned up late but was jubilant.

The other five bridesmaids were foolish.
Without oil their lamps...Read More

Peaceful coexistence
To live in peace and harmony
To never look at the other with an evil eye
To love others like you love your own self
Then will the sunshine on your feet
And you will never face defeat

It was as if the old oak trees had died

Setting all the disease on fire come daylight

Premium Member in the stillness of time
a sliver of hope hangs
on the valance
of darkness

cast off
from frosted glass
of dimly lit
street lamps glow
a shadow stands
alone
awaiting
on stars 
to glisten
through love's eyes
if he were to come
this very night

the willow
on the hill
weeps
with the air
for her
as she strolls
along
alone
again
lost
somewhere
in the winter's mist
as her...Read More

A polished skeleton gleams in the porch light,
meshing gears rattle silver bones.
He slides tubes under his legs,
pivots on a straining fulcrum,
knee’s unlocking a juddering thrust.

He rides by night
pondering a nocturnal test flight.

Lights flicker as wheels turn.
Head bent, he powers downhill,

Governments Can't Run Companies
Why can't Governments run companies

A Gap in the Gyre -- part 1
An old hotel in Portland
Rain hitting street lamps
The buzzer
Click
Surveillance camera
“Can I get a room?”

It used to be called the "Burnside Triangle" back when it was still gay

Bump Bump da Bump da bump
Nightclubs bangin’
Young twinks in their twenties
They chat and drink

Circle
They’re just going through me,
like light from street lamps in the evening fog.

I breathe them in,
pass through my veins and
breathe out.

But they always leave a little piece inside me,
a small mark on a heart.

I am a star of million lights.

Roaring Walls
Maroon paints all the halls and rooms,
in the hotel.
Light from candles or lamps changes the wall's color
to crimson,
Within that deep red lays shifting faces.
Agony is a clear emotion that the faces express.
Peering too closely red arms grasp out,
Claiming whoever is...Read More

Premium Member SHE GREW UP
Her parents use to read her Fairy Tales
she remember their voices…
their joy…
their laughter
which is why, she imagines, she grew up
believing in happily ever after.

She believes in bears that talk…
in trees that dance…
in wizards who can fly...
She believes a kiss can...Read More

When the wind blows, 
down from the great north, 
it brings a mighty frost. 
Do not be afraid. 
Just because something, 
makes you tremble, 
does not give it the right…
to win. 

Stand tall, all who guard the...Read More

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house floor

The mice very nimble and fast invade the cabinets and drawers.

They walk in single file beside the river.
Five young men heads newly shaved,
their saffron robes washed so frequently
that orange has turned a saffron yellow,
a yellow seen in temple lamps at dusk.

They gather under a broad Tamarind tree
for shade and rest.

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

meant only for leaning

Premium Member Night Time Brings

~

Night time brings a silence,
a loneliness that drags hours
through the mind's corridors

Winding past words shared
during the day, earlier promises,
affectionate offerings found my eyes,
longing for merely a touch from
far away wishes, rubbing brass lamps,
picking four leaf clovers...

I was asked, " Is...Read More

The eyes of heavenly beacons
Peek out from amidst the shadows,
Like so many playful stars
Behind a mist-blown sky—
Or the diffuse glow of street lamps
Draped with sculpted snow.
From songbirds to sonatas,
From meteors to mantras,
They veil themselves in fetching garb
And wink at us...Read More

O Almighty river! Where is your home?
Is there no end to your urge to roam?
Endlessly you run like the Witch on the mountain
Who lived in a cavern by the secret fountain

You begin your journey as a stream on the mountain...Read More

Sun is held hostage by a blanket of clouds,
