Premium Member Crop Failure - Bitter Harvest
The past can’t tell the future; I'd almost forgotten this,
The past six years had brought me higher yields than average,
Though expectations soared, now nada, nothing, zilch.
Our wheat fields decimated from the lack of rain.
And those...

Her oft-honed chip, accented with her mother's old mink stole,
Tears most lovely in her eyes as she spoke of the beautiful farm;

Premium Member Have Done With It
Have you ever played with it?
Even if just a bit.
Or thrown it.
Because you were in a snit.
Did you ever eat it?
Then throw out the pit.
Or caught it.
In your mitt.

Would you yell at it?
In a momentary...

Premium Member Black Witch
Born and raised as a little child in a Witches’ coven,
the Black Witch was indeed a very precocious child
whose hell-spawned soul was seared in Hell’s oven,
and like Medusa herself was a creature gone wild.

O ' Satan, father of all that is sinister and evil,
Of all that is foul, putrid, and base.

In a cataclysmic war,
To regain...

Choking Back The Tears
Choking Back The Tears!

This papa did accurately
surmise undeclared war
strong armed lance pierced my armour,
ah...how fondly he recalls
early fatherhood days of yore,
when daddy's first born girl

did effusively adore
yours truly, he likened self as topnotch
trooper, who mustered...

Man-cat-baby-demon
I am scrolling down hill,

folding the pills,

elongating the tree's
and simplifying the breeze,

I am a song to be played-

earlier than you might say
in the day,

when hearing is a complaint
and danger is delayed,

but you are a spade,

Bad Breeding

the list that was a fist
a) it is possible
b) it is inevitable
chained to a million pleasures
an astonishing compendium of compulsions
honed bright with a fool's ardor
the kind you'd wish for in a movie script
undulating at the...

~ Poem the 1st Chap. Inspired Bye ~ Part #18
Because-love exults eternally, universal 
peace, and so I say Love- in its benignity ... 
recuses all ... ~and perfect- and servant 
in their fervent manner;- integrity, 
receptivity- and amenability
illustrious and moreover 
devoted in their richness, 
breed thy greater influence 
of peace throughout the years,
sanctifying themselves forever in 
their innocence, becoming the 
fortunate prize ... an altruistic 
offering, and humble sacrifice,
given for all to embrace through 
faith, a certain repose;- and everlasting 
liberty. While- clemency, oh Thy generous 
clemency, emancipates-knavery's tomfoolery, 
and suggested to me, and granted as a wonderful 
opportunity, grace ... is the universal proposition 
dancing through time hand in hand within the arms 
of love; relishing in the promotion of her deliverance,
and so I say, when this hope of my days reprieve ... 
has come to pass ... beckon me on- to know 
this- simple delight, and hold me in Thy 
loving keep.Yes bring me Thine heavenly 
Kite to greet me. Secure me there, and lay me 
down then-under the assurance, and gentle 
comfort of her wings. Yes raise me up ... and
hear me oh Lord in my plea I pray. (("Oh liberate 
me",)) ("Carry my soul off with her to Thee".) (("Let
thy love shower-down (over me".))) So I may 
embrace for myself, again, thine tender arms, 
of mercy ... . Precious-tears-offered in-faith ... fall, 
God-catches them places them, within His Soul's 
heavenly-amphora, and with a sway of His Mighty 
Hand, plucks-up His eminent-Knowledge-honed
by Holy Quill. Upright and looking strait into 
His vision for us of the new day. Offers-the 
many consummate opportunities riding high 
on the fringe of His promise, granted in welcome. 
Painting a Holy Journey,evolving amid a certain
solace and freedom. Moving on into veracious days 
with Him lasting on forever. Exiting beyond higher lofts of earthly 
skies and rolling lands advancing in humble reverence descending 
down from the openness of the Heavens. Rewriting yet again; another-story 
in person for each individual. Yes for all life; far-greater-and-even greater 
still ... than the others gone before....
