She Could Have Loved Me Anyway

The Oceans Do Not Call
Some people find sublime beauty
in its foaming white-caps and waves,
they look at it like a lover
who is so prone to misbehave.
They dream of riding the tall crests,
of marlin-fishing off a boat,
sitting on beaches soaking sun
until their exposed bodies roast.
They build...Read More

What a fabulous fish
What an awesome dish,
Neolina is her name,
And Flirting is her game.
She dives, shimmers,
Swims and flows,
She always smiles, 
Shines and glows,
And then she dips
To show her other side,
But Neolina is perfect,
And has nothing to hide!
Her colours are...Read More

my dinghy eyes got capsized

Premium Member Critterary Verses: Things I never learned from Marlin Perkins
Antisocial anacondas don't associate in numbers;
Bears and beagles don't become the best of friends.
Civet cats catch rats, so is it any wonder
On doleful dingoes dire dilemmas do descend?
Elite elephants eschew jumping, it's ungraceful;
"Frenching" frogs will fetch nor wart nor prince.

I've got a dish of killifish
I wish to eat that silly fish
Baked, or fried in peanut oil
Roasted, dried, or let to boil.

Make me a star-gazy pie
Take me to the Catfish Fry
Lead me to the China Sea
Feed me hermit crabs and...Read More

Virility of a writer,
an adventure...
you would find,
out in the bush!

For the big hunt
to unwind...
your clock,
in time.

Only to come undone,
and for victory
you had won.

All in full flower...
for a while,
with one big smile!

Out in the deep sea
with the marlin,
or just a bull...Read More

A smile
A guitar
A rolled up cig
A voice that sings
At every gig

A mind that travels
Beyond this plain,
A sense of humor,
Sometimes insane...

A devotion
To daughters
Of whom he was
so proud,
A tendency never,
to talk too loud

Words and thoughts
Wise beyond his years,
Human suffering
That brought on tears
