The Spirits Of Culloden
The Spirits of Culloden. 
This is like a pilgrimage, a try tae come every year,
Gather at the cairn, meet old friends, wipe away a tear.
Standin on that moor, that once with blood was sodden,
Paying respects...

Each Man Follows His Own Trail
“Each man follows his own trail, but he rides it all alone,”
Was what Free Will always said when he turned his horse toward home.
But none of us knew it then, just how true those words...

Premium Member My Cloud by Preston
My cloud is a drifty sort of cloud. 
A kicked back, go-where-the-wind-blows, kind of cloud.
It’s an easy-going, shoes-off, feet-on-the-table, kind of a place. 
If there were a door, it would be a revolving door.
First, because...

Premium Member The New Hire
In the economy of social grace
I was losing in the great rat-race.
No wealth could I accumulate
I’d scarcely get a second date.
My Wall Street stock was always down
mere junk bonds of no great renown.
I was not...

A poem about two cities, 12000 miles apart,
but when it comes to politics, the same!
Bradford in England, Manukau in New Zealand.

ON SEEING CHRIST
Not then as mingling personage,
and its resort,
nor as linguistic parsonage
in moments scored!

So also referenced structuring
the church in ford,
oft marks the course in buffering
a message heard!

The sight of Christ, so ruffling
with wonders chord,
all else is stemmed...

Preston Jacob Simon.
The one who played catch with me in the past,
The guy who throws the ball extremely fast.

The guy who graduated in 2006,
Guess what college he goes ahead and picks.

Premium Member Running Bare
Towards the edge, of the pool
I, was running bare.
Not very brave.
There already, in the pool,
swam the others, as nature made.
All my skin, was a showing,
such a scary, sight to see.
But the others, kept on cheering,

Premium Member Bigfoot and I
Today I wandered through a grove.
An ancient and dilapidated place,
decaying as groves are wont.
A wind-snapped branch here,
a worm-eaten stump there.
Until the whispering wind
softly muttered in my ear,
“This is not your first time here.”
But all is...

Premium Member Preston Graham - Bio
I was born in the dusk of March.
There was a blizzard, I’m told.
But I don’t remember it that way.
So much for “out like a lamb,”
and at an ounce over ten pounds,
my mother likely shares the...

In the city of Libra
There goes an unfair leader
Forcing them to take sense-remover shoots 
The people taking them everyday continuously 
Anything that brings feelings must be destroyed
The law of the country, the unwill of the...

Sadness
Here I am, alone again
Darkness and silence, my only friends.
Indecision and confusion, yea they’re here too. 
With great advice on what to do.
Pain is present, and accounted for.
Along with misery. Who could want more?
I have...

Premium Member Puttin' On The Ritz
A four piece string ensemble competes
with fluted crystal glasses harmonizing
to the tinkling of fine silverware
underpinned by the purring whispers 
of well-to-do's and their hobnobbery.

Buttery lobster and rib-eyed supper in
opulent gravies and exotic spices;
cornucopia fruits on...

Mine was a world without flowers
where nature had nothing to give.
Bleakly, a path stretched before me.
That life I was fearful to live.

In the desolate dust long I wandered
‘til oasis I found in your love.

Premium Member Political Aims
Around the world the bombs are flying.
Political aims. Political lying.
Treaties are friendships, or so they’re implying;
As long as all parties are meekly complying.

Self-interested means, are always belying
The truth of the war; the truth underlying.
And we’ll...
