the Sinner's Sorrow
Inspired by reading "SCAR ISLAND" by Dan Gemeinhart --

Prodigal boys, deprived of joys
a band of brothers, without their mothers
writing to them, every day, 
compelling, I bet, the mothers to pray
although those moms didn't know how much

Premium Member Sailing for Love
My love can part the oceans,
But it hasn’t reached your shores…
Sailing in the breeze with emotions,
As my heart rudders and explores.

Within the mist of heartaches,
The thunder passes through…
Shattering sorrows of earthquakes,
Exposing the love I have for you.

The deep sea swallows...Read More

Oh Lake O
Oh Lake O

Water surrounds
Birds chirp
River flows out to the lake
Steady 
High
Trunks of trees under water 
Top of trees like cauliflower 
Ebb
Flow
Sailboats don’t notice
But the old lighthouse almost kisses the blue water
Clouds look down on the blue
Wide like the ocean
Harbouring life

 To stand barefoot,
 On your bright yellow sandy beaches,
 To stand and admire your pretty streets,
 Your glowing white Lighthouse,

Let's just sit and touch fingertips!
Warm and ever so lightly, please.
As we face each other on our knees.

With your always lighthouse eyes
And unfailingly, glimmering obsession.

hearing birds perform their songs at the crack of dawn

Premium Member The Mystery Of Eilean Mor

One hundred years ago on Eilean Mor
On a lone lighthouse that was manned by three
Their story lives on in local folklore
What happened is a complete mystery.

From a distance a lighthouse horn blows
The mist settles in, fishermen do not go 
A beacon light gleams and attracts 
Sights and sounds, from a warning tract.
 
From a distance, harbor lights in a row
Tides smooth over, ripples are low
Seagulls...Read More

Its eye stares
Far out to sea

Opiating Reality
It would seem, that, humans,
Too sensitive to deal with the harshness of life
Prefer to fly on clouds, even if temporarily
To make themselves believe
That existing can be made of goodness!

Opiates, making of them zombies,
Accrue! And selling lords, depending on these

Maybe We Were as We Are and as We Will Always Be
At times I wonder,
haven't we ever met before?
The thin ribbon of wind that once passed by,
kissing your chiseled bearded jaw,
hadn't it ever stopped for a bite of a second
on the nest of my fist to kiss my bony fingers?
Were we...Read More

I have yet to see your waves so bloodied 
Melancholy pitching too and fro 
Less an Ocean , More a River
Taking breath and solace behest the bow
Journeying forth aboard this intrepid Ghost Ship

Ghostly presence seen nightly
When lighthouse illumes brightly
Fishermen claim to see her
Confounded old tars concur

Her lover swallowed at sea
by fierce waves, old tars agree
Lighthouse beam, sailors concur
Was gone, not even a blur

Reaching out to you -
Can you hear my voice,
on the other side?
I call quietly out to reach your ear, 
and hope your heart will listen.
I don't care to reach the masses, 
just one just you will do.
I'm a solitude writer,

As I navigate North looking to the South
In a heading away from these waves

So dark I cannot see the first mate below
