I am swept off my feet by such flare.
When I think that tonight’s my first ball,

Premium Member Where Evil Creeps
An eerie silence wrapped the bog,
I dared not move nor speak.
The chilling blanket of the fog
where evil beings creep,
conceals within tormented souls 
now stirring from their sleep,
and there with gruesome fate foretold
lie secrets they will...

I will dread October's spell
It only comes but once a year
I, my friends, have tales to tell
Thus, my family, makes me fear!!

Pumpkins, lanterns, cornstalk vases
Grace our porch with happy faces,
Some so creepy, they leave traces

God's Strength, God's Word, God's Love
trijan refrain 

The heart half full means something’s wrong -
the Spirit’s oil runs low.
When emptied, broken, we are strong
refilled, and ready so -
God’s strength can fix a heart gone dull
our selfish contents He can cull.

Before Darkness Saw Light
In the year before darkness saw light,
When the safety of men knew no shroud.
At the time when the shadows of night,
In the Heavens had not been allowed.

When the spirits of men did not mourn,
Nor the...

Rhythmic Perfection (anapestic trimeter)
There's a river that twists in the mind
that I plunder and ravish with sieves,
on crusades to the summit of rhyme
where my Phoenix of tropes and schemes live.

In a war to free diction's fair Queen

Premium Member My Eyes Looked Up
I stood before your grave...
   saw stone's mosaic glaze,
and 'neath the midnight moon, 
   observed the garden maze
of lovely leaves and blooms 
   around your buried nest;
each faithful guardian 
    for endless, lifeless rest.

See the sparkle in children’s bright eyes,
how they glow with a smile on their face.
When a puppet begins to dance free,
with a master who moves him with grace.

Hear the laughter kids shout loud with glee,

So enchanted was Sun by Queen Sea
as he sat near some clouds high above
he began sliding down stealthily
till he touched the dark face of his love.

Then Sir Sky, so aroused by Sea’s hue,

Premium Member ''Under Green Leaves, Dripping'' Hexsonnetta

A glass wing butterfly,
so very gossamer;
A rainforest treasure,
she looks up to the sky;
And away she will fly,
in deep dark rapture.

Small frogs of the forest,
the bright, colorful hue;
Sweet, they play in the dew,
on green...

Rusted doors open slow,
For water to form ice,
Sunset to again rise,
To revive the lost glow,
Clear the restricted flow,
To strengthen the weak ties,

Need patience and courage,
For broken hearts to mend
happy they might pretend,
To speak mind;...

A Child Jabbers Spondees

Its feet are tiny dimeter,
Body, spirit, soul, trimeter,
Would you look at those ears and eyes
Whose tetrameter rhyme defies

Its foot with pentameter toes,
Smelled by monometer nose!
Don’t fret when its iamb voice speaks 
Cheerful quatrains for days...

Raised proud towards bright sunlight
So frail, endlessly frail
