“…Man serves the interests of no creature except himself…” - Middle White Boar

You came from behind, like a snitcher, and I twirled like a sunflower, as you tingled me. I smiled. The rain dove sang.

 You came to me as...Read More

Premium Member Butterfly Fairy Messengers
Butterfly kisses gliding in softly
appearing out of another realm
unclaimed by humans

Monarchs lightly perch onto the frothy daisies
filling up the meadow with unknown prettiness
faeries never looked this lovely

in dainty droves they appear faster now
gliding in from sparkling slits in the sky

Premium Member Elevated Thoughts - Perhaps
The little imp bawled lustily
as it lay in its perambulator
there by the water fountain
in a secluded garden
right in the middle of a concrete jungle,
disturbing my elevated thoughts
that churned and churned inside my mind
on how to kill those pesky flies
that infested...Read More

God's Confession
God's Confession

I was sitting along
In a god forsaken bar
Somewhere on the lunatic fringes
Of society

Enjoying my lonely drink
Drinking by my lonesome self
With my partners
Jimmy Dean, and the Walker brother
And his old Granddad
Just drinking and hanging
With the Jack Daniel's gang

A crazed bum
With...Read More

Swap Headaches for Dragons
At ten o’clock each morning, the Barley Tavern opens up its door,
and every now and then I saunter down, just making sure,
that Ken the barman hasn’t slept in, so he might need a call,
to satisfy those with the D.T.’s with...Read More

Early this morning it was warm and bright
Song birds sweetly singing in the sunlight
I was out in my garden as I started to prune
Weeding, knowing flowers will be sprouting soon

The morning was soon afternoon and turned hot

Fairy Cakes
My grandma really liked to cook
Scones and cream cakes she didn’t need a book
And she always let me lick the spoon
Cooking with her was always over too soon

And best of all was over school holidays
When I went to stay with...Read More

Locked In Part 1
Everyone battles a storm in their life
But yours was much bigger than anyone's I've ever seen.
I saw it the first day when I looked in your grey eyes,
It as battling hard with the demons hidden behind.

Darkness consumed me everywhere I...Read More

Premium Member A Smile On Her Face And A Gleam In Her Eye
As she looked at the handsome old man pass by
She was a widow and sadly missed
Her cuddle from her husband and a loving kiss
She never thought she would be alone
Without her husband to call her own
If she could meet a...Read More

‘I shall change its complexion; 
This world has not awakened to reality yet, 
Allow me to acquaint it with the truth that can be bitter.’

He looked at me as though seeking my support.

Premium Member Black Tie Required
Billy went to the black-tie affair.
He looked buff, and he felt debonair.
The ladies all smiled;
their husbands were riled
'cause except for the tie, he was bare.

Premium Member A LITTLE WORM
We are born…we live…we die…that’s the way it’s supposed to be
We are all bound by the circle of life…and our own mortality.

A little worm…her color green…and she seemed to...Read More

The gentleman strode confidently along the strand 
‘his silver topped cane was gripped tightly in hand 

‘the storm which had raged with that purple strange light ‘had pushed him forward in -time to this very night.

You luxuriously flew to this
Concreted forest, looked for me
In these brown zinced roofs,
But found me not.

In despair you drove off to the
Growth points were the poor
Congregate to drink their misery off
But found me not.

Then maneuvered through the
Paired ox-drawn cart paths
Inquisively...Read More

Premium Member Five Days in Zebra Pajamas
I looked down on myself and felt irritated.
I have looked better, less like a hag
This past week I have been wild looking.
My hair makes Einstein’s look tame.

Am I really this hunched over?
My great-grandmother had a humpback
She looked at the floor...Read More

Van Goghs Room
(Café Ravoux, Auvers sur Oies, May 2006)

I had hoped to see
relics of the man –
canvases, brushes, 
his box paints,
his straw hat.  At the least, 
his bed, chair, and table. 
Only a tiny window
cut into the mansard roof,
looked in where...Read More

Every human has a beast within;
He maybe a man who hasn’t done a sin;
But that doesn’t imply his beast is dead.
He can awake if his frustration is well fed.

YAWP! YAAWP! He cries,
He screams. His voice itself horrifies
The phantoms and certified...Read More

Brains Man or Dog

I never gave my dog much credit for
innate intelligence – until yesterday
when about to cross an intersection
without looking – the dog apparently did

just as a car sped by blarring its...Read More

The first day
In seventy four we were just lads
They lined us up 
In front of the Drill Hall
All a bit strange to us
Some parents too who looked so proud

The courses marched past
Then someone spoke and instructors bellowed
The squads doubled around the parade...Read More
