I enlist, in this,
Woven fabric;
Letters combined into words;
Letter of actions verbs;

Each character has their own strand;
Each word their own story;
Forms, subplot, main plot, boldly;
Each and everything;

Every written words glory;
Out of mind viewed through the eyes
Fingers and hands type up the...Read More

Premium Member Better not
Mirror mirror on the wall,
better never fall at all,
As long as you hang in there,
People will stop and stare,
To see their faces to hearts desire!
But if you break to many tiny sizes,
People will fear your prickly pieces,
and sweep you away...Read More

Free Dai Morris
As the hills and streets fall silent
and the shadows claim the land
As you rest your head for another night
spare a thought for an innocent man

"Free Dai Morris" 
the truth speakers say
ACAB ?
Well they are making it seem that way

Justice will...Read More

Things You hear In The Night
Run friends as fast as you can
From this dreadful land
Be wary of a terrible sight
Of things that go "Blasty Blang Beedle Bum  Bang" in the night!

Nery a more terrible sound
That can be heard for miles around
A sound that doesn't...Read More

GOING AFTER GOLD

A hundred years ago or so, the story has been told,
A fever swept across the land of going after gold.
It seemed each person caught the urge, and they just could not rest,
The cry came through the camps and...Read More

Premium Member Winters Review
The squirrel collects,
to keep his winter safe.
The oak tree buds,
not a branch left out of place.

The grass will grow,
another spring comes forth.
The flowers will bloom,
the ducks and geese fly north.

The birds will sing,
as if hatched from a master plan.
The bunnies...Read More

'Nothing from Nothing' 
then a heritage plan
with a sermon of fire 
on the sand.

What inspired the lines
from this near-wasted man
was sheltered and saved 
for this land.

The Famous Expedition
Poem by Koffi Mtonga

A garden beneath the soaring sunrise-
Somewhere in nowhere
Lingers on~ in no-mans' land
A Majestic and glamorous scene-
A master piece with a picture green-
Landmarked with meadows within that nowhere-
Watered with blue waters perfumed in streams of gold.
Inconspicuous on a...Read More

Gently held in the palm of a child's open hand
the funniest of fun bugs in all Bug Land
Cute and round with wings to fly
Orange with black polka dots that jive
She crawls onto the child's fingers
tingling the skin is she lingers

Lovitivity v1
Time is the recorder, measuring events that expire
And not the Judge, deciding when events transpire
it silently and anonymously prints beginnings to endings
The world juried our Love affair
Earth’s, Mountains and Rivers observes Us moving as fast as a locomotive
Its verdict mellow,...Read More

I Loved A Girl Here

Premium Member The Stream of Life
Mostly I sit on the banks reflecting on its power.
Will I ever dare its careening currents
that seem to so casually bounce from rock to shore?

I dip a toe in now and then.
Yet fear follows me, constantly confining the natural flow

Premium Member YOUR SOUL IS ALL MINE
Your body is yours,
do what you please.
I gave you free will,
and I gave you reprieve.

I gave you knowledge,
to know right from wrong.
Your life will bring you,
to right where you belong.

Decisions you make,
they are for you to choose.
Remember my word,
and what...Read More

FLOWER IN THE CRANNIED WALL
FLOWER IN THE CRANNIED WALL

I tower above the crumbling ruins
Of a once majestic tower,
Flag and pennant proudly proclaimed 
Pompous claim of pelf and power.

Yet all the boast and bombast,
In crumbling  silence relates,
Of transient tenebrous things,
Of fickle times, of fickler...Read More

A feather lost, gliding and drifting, it soars, 
in the mighty wind, it twirls and swirls, as if dancing;
once, the People owned all the wilderness,
they called it home, now they watch it be destroyed. 

There, high upon a sheer...Read More

9-11
The day that tragedy struck the land,
We watched two buildings fall like sand.
We saw the face of death firsthand.
To this day, we don't understand.

The day in which we will remember.
The day where families were changed forever.
On this day we gather...Read More

You still wonder where you will stay.
You sit at home thinking all day.

After thinking all day long Paris is where you will go.
You pack up all of your bags and check how much you...Read More

Premium Member Does Anyone Care - edited
Does anyone care
about the forgotten and voiceless 
in our society?
Who cries for these people?

What about the less-fortunate 
and helpless ones abandoned and lost
in no man's land without a compass.
Who hears their cries to be found and rescued?

We all do, but...Read More

Death knocks

 Trying to make a small manuscript of thirty pages.
 I have reached 29 pages, but all seems so futile
Words I have written before keep cropping up
I can’t endlessly repeat myself.
