I once knew a husky young man named Jim
Tried every diet he could to get slim

Take my hand – follow the plan,
Let’s go for a walk down wide Spruce Street;
Friends to play with and neighbors to greet

MY HERO
She survived the attack 
Of the turpentine man
When she was just a kid
He had her pinned 
To the ground
She ends up in shock
But it was a hoax
From a young adult
Trying to stop
After school fights
As a teen
She met and danced
With the...Read More

MARTIN LUTHER KING
Martin Luther King was 
A man of words
He stirred your emotions
And you wanted to be heard

He inspired me
To fight for what I want
And not give up
When others tell me don’t

You inspired me oh yell
Bringing my feelings out
You tried me

In life...Read More

CASH
The gambler was hard-up for cash
Didn’t get it, but instead got a rash
He worked up an inch
His stomach started to twitch
Money hungry, the man felled and crash

Premium Member On The 6
Above the umbrellas of London Town
And beneath its 4pm skies,
Squashed by a window, I sat looking down
From a seat passing through Kensal Rise.

When a man with a phone stood up to get off
A woman and child stood too.
As he tackled...Read More

Premium Member thy death
‘neath the fear of man and joy of mate,
bequeath thy death and burrow thy fate-
‘tis a filament of life strung straight,
bestowing a trait... of death too late

Premium Member Dog in a Turning Pond

Paws in a rippling swash
thrash and dip in a twirling circle,
paddlewheel a roundness.

Mouth wide in the sluice, a sodden rudder 
pushes sideways braiding a foaming wake.
Pond and dog orbit an ocular sky,
watery eyes memo the turning scene:

a bobbing hat floats...Read More

Written: by Miracle Man

There always comes a point in each persons life,
when expended days exceed those remaining.
I recall youthful days when I had no strife,
and there existed no need for my feigning. 

It's said, tough times don't...Read More

Lincoln Quote For Andrea
Lincoln was a white man of his time. He wasn't as bad as the majority,
north or south, but he was undoubtedly a white supremecist.
I'm white, but if I were black there's no way he'd cut the mustard
as a pin-up boy...Read More

The purpose of trials
Written: by Miracle Man
2-18-2020

God uses our suffering to attest his power,
and always has a purpose for hardships that we face.
He remains a constant companion during this hour,
not always answering prayer at our desired pace.

site sitting
night ends
all shadows

but street 
lights begin 
creating new

cathedral steps
become my seat

with the sun 
now set i sit 
looking as

passerbys make
no eye contact

yet i see
the man
selling

water and
the rainbow

dressed women
with fruits of
other colors

selling tastes
of sweetness

and selling to
take a photo
with them

the bell tolls

Premium Member In The Night


In the middle night,
in middle America — a small tremor,
not enough to scare the cat,
but the cat knew, and it told the mice
who lived in the walls.
‘It wasn’t us’, they said.

A mess on my desk.
The thin vase with its lone...Read More

THE CAPTAINS GAZE
So many nights
When I close my eyes 
You’re in my sights
I can’t disguise 

The pull, the swirl
Captivating breeze
Of an island girl
The thought, oh please

Let time stand still
sun do not rise
The things I feel
Under evening sky’s 
My one and only
Know who...Read More

Cyrus...

President of the country, 
not like any that came before. 
Or... Like any that will follow. 
Standing in the gap between the flood, 
and the waters of eternity, 
threatening to consume the weak, 
kill the innocent, 
and feast on the...Read More

Premium Member Life in Deep Space
True freedom can feel like an exquisite jail
Our inhabited space bound by bars we drink in.
Child’s nutrition once favored, a lap dance now passé,
Our restaurants change with new owners, or chefs find
New orbits, food loved fades as children leave home...Read More

Each day I'm reminded that God's in control,
it's important to notice, things He has made.
From placement in the ocean of each atoll,
to the forest and His placement of a glade. 

But we too, are known...Read More

Be Sincere
Written: by Miracle Man
2-26-2020

Alligator tears are seldom seen as sincere,
emotions aren't always as they seem to appear.

Sometimes, underlying motives they oft conceal,
and what they truly think they refuse to reveal.

Not saying and doing always makes them uncouth,
they give the...Read More

The dew lays thick on the October Morning, 
The last for the advent of frost.
With my blanket I sit on the front porch swing,
And wait for the paper to come.

Which cover the...Read More

The man in my heart
I always wanted to fall in love, 
To make my heart suddenly beat faster, 
To connect the colors of life, 
With the melody of love sounding.

And you forgive me for lying.

The whole love shudder passed.
