My friend was as drunk as a loon...Read More

A Bounty From Universe And Its Golden Bowl

Poets dream but reality wakes deep sorrows
world plots and schemes, as future holds our tomorrows
walking oft blinded to treachery and deceit,
setup and shocked, at world's wicked evil we meet,
many a pawn, in a...Read More

Deception dawns anew
thrice tempted to believe
every act control humane
deigns obstruct soul reckoning,
forgiveness pride eludes
such grace ne'er sought
nor sad fool being sated,
I am the master of my fate

I welcome in the beauty of this luminous blue moon 
watching brilliant ribbons of blue and silver light 
join the soothing space of angels that we call twilight ;
I flow into the depth of night and listen to the songs...Read More

Premium Member A Phenomenon

As shifting shadows sully silver skies
lightning fingers comb tangled locks of rain.
And thunder's faint rumble intensifies
echoing over and over again.

A ghostly yodel haunts a dimpled lake
pummeled by rain a loon calls for its mate.
And treetops tremble when weak branches break
as...Read More

Premium Member Laughter
Laughter's healthy, contagious, and brightens your day.
It's pun that's a groaner or joke that's risque.
It's a belly laugh, horse laugh, or laugh like a loon
At a comic strip. slapstick or clown or cartoon.

Laughter's chuckles and chortles, a snicker or snort.

Not A Moment Too Soon
I met her on a foreign shore, two souls adrift it seemed
She could see it in my eyes, a common search we felt
I was alone and so was she and I was bound for war
To slay a foe I did...Read More

Daniel Chapters 1 and 2
In the third year of Jehoiakim’s dynasty.
Nebkadazar stepped into Judah’s society
He besieged Judah’s land.
And God allowed him the upper hand.
For the children of God were transgressing
Causing a cursing instead of a blessing.
For numerous years they were in Babylon’s captivity.
Where God’s...Read More

Loon Who Would Love a Lark

When Trump sang we had to hark;
Raving mad who seemed so stark;
Angels said,
He wet bed;
Loony as a loon that loved a lark.

Giving life to the Fern, the Laurel and the Pine

Over Rainbow Trout twirled in Spring's romance
The river bellows its mighty roar

Sitting on the pot: all I got for my inspiration was; you daft loon

Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest lake in New Hampshire
Today it was filled with waves across the bay
It seems like the ocean when it gets moving this way
Surrounded by distant mountains, worth visiting to see
The ducks and loon are hiding as...Read More

My little westie Dougal
He's my little loon,
He really thinks he owns the place,
As he struts around the room.

He has this fake bad temper
That's such a laugh to see,
Sticking his little chest out saying
"Don't you bother me."

When it comes to Dougal's...Read More

Witches and warlocks marching their truth
Pouring discarded spells on poor Sister Ruth
Laughing as they dance and run on her head.
Showing her what will happen when she is dead.

But I am a nun she yells, thinking it will stop their play.

Like a red, red rose
My love is like
a red, red rose
newly sprung
in June

My love is like
a melody
sweetly played
in tune...

~Robert Burns (1794)

My love is like
a letting go of
a light-hearted child's 
balloon

My love is like
a gentleness
roses thriving as
I prune

My love is like
a hopefulness
my favorite flowers 
strewn

A walk home 
...And there he lie in fetid squalor,
Upon the chaise in vacant parlour...

“What befell this young man?” a query.
A sorrowful tale - tis quite dreary. 
Tricks! The superstitious mind doth play. 
Bested - a quite unfortunate way.

Under the Full Moon
Daylight fades
As the pond jumps to life

Under the full moon
The call of the loon
Frogs croaking
Crickets chirping
Busy buzz of the dragonfly
Snake on the hunt
Slithering
Stalking
Flick of the tongue

Under the full moon
The yipping of the coyotes
Raccoon washes
The crayfish he snags
Bass jump
Catfish roll

This knowledge I possess
It chills me to my core,
In who can I confide
That tomorrow is no more.

I cannot tell my loved ones
I could not bear their pain,
How could I let them suffer
In the hours that remain.

I cannot approach strangers

Bums Are Funny
Bums are funny, I don't know why
giggling 'til I nearly cry-

Silly nicknames are so much fun
like fanny, tail, rump or buns

Some are dainty, sweet or cutesy
like heinie, cheeks, and petootsie

Timid hinting at their meanings
“back-end”, “behind”... backward leanings

While some are spunky,...Read More
