Premium Member The book of lide
The Book Of Life.
I earnestly searched for the book of life
I looked in every store
I always got the same answer
‘’We never had one
Have you tried next door?’’
My endless quest finished fruitless
And I gave up my restless endeavour
I began to think

I have seen, yes i have seen
A million movies in my teens
i have seen Jekyll and Hyde 
And the rusty nail in Joy Ride

Scary movies to freeze your blood
An axe-wielding maniac, wild and mad

Soul Seated
Dark as the night of 
the soul, 
That's seen a thousand
black holes 
You wait on all fours 
ready to kiss my ass-whole. 

You're hard, 
Coated in Sweet bliss
That twinkles in the 
Tea Light. 

The dark horse 
Amongst a herd of

Premium Member An Artists Journey And In The End
A lifetime of learning
Like un-Religion, practiced un-Art.

Focusing one eye out, one eye in

And marrying the two
Within disciplines learned… ‘Aha’ moments.

Nothing’s meet ‘Nothing’
Infinity’s meet ‘Infinity’.

All merged in ‘Beyond Understanding’.

Whose field long ago I laid down in
Waiting for Sun’s morning gifts.

Coming into...Read More

sweet little one
so tiny
a sleeping beauty
a mother’s pride

a ticking mystery

Premium Member Legend of Ogopogo
Chilled by cold Canadian air
Lake Okanagan’s waters run deep
And so does its Ogopogo
A legend the centuries keep

Native Americans feared it
Animal sacrifices were made
Before they boarded their canoes
And set out to traverse the lake

Campfire stories natives told
Of the monster “Snake in...Read More

on a gentleman’s humble farm
six hungry mouths to feed
an ambitious garden
behind the chicken coop
each hen adopted by the kids
given funny names
inside a big tall fence some bunnies
all given bunny names
around the dining table 
one big happy family

The Mud Monster
Within the bayous of muck
and mire there is a tale
of the mud monster who
appears at front doors
in the dark of the night
covered with thick mud
begging to come in
and visit for a while
to chat over a cup of
coffee and tell you

Noob goes for a walk in a straight line
The distance from point A to B is easy
But going only half way as required 
Going half the distance all the time
Is not so simple as Noob might think

Weathered cracks in the stone
The seasons how they forge you so,
A barren place, yet still a home
For in your midst a flower grows.

What succuor dwells upon this wall
When round about the soil is sweet,
Yet there you cling, fearing no fall

Without your eyes, there is no Grand Canyon or Redwood
With SELF, there is both selfishness and selflessness
Stop thinking, start meditating: I have taken, what may I give?
Jesus chose to yield His will, to obey Father. In Jesus I rest
The Incarnation,...Read More

All things can tempt me, but I’ll not stray long
from poetry. Desire to write is strong.

The lure of pie may shoo my muse away,
but soon new themes my poems will convey.
A brand-new movie’s on, a mystery. 
When it concludes,...Read More

apparently none of all that is theirs
he sits there outwardly immune

My name is Magnus Moore, and I am far from pure.
See I can never die, I thought you might ask why.

Sometimes I Have A Stephen King Mind
Sometimes I have a Stephen King mind,
always searching for a good tale to weave,
filled with macabre and mysterious thought,
clearing my cobwebs of all the fraught.

Sometimes I have a Stephen King mind,
reading his novels in a well-lit room,
as my fingers of...Read More

Premium Member Can a Fool Descibe Love
Can I describe Love?

A path of the fool,
Words expressing sensation,
Shimmering spark of sun, diamonds on a pool,
Red bird lifts head, water elations,

Thoughts emerge from where?
Whether image, pain, longing desire,
Reality skirts away, with a wide tear,
Smoky haze, warmth to the core,...Read More

Among persons known within mine barbed ken
Analogous to black box
holding untold secrets,
I share the following self
introspection with ye,
which purported hidden truths
might set me free,
albeit laborious effort

to loose constituent amalgamated
compound elements unmined
tantamount to agony
riddling psyche effort to extract
thorny matters incumbent upon me
versus tapping Androcles and the lion

Colored lights mesmerized shadows as we danced.
With his presence, the night was entranced.
Who was he, and why did he make me feel?
But clouds of mystery his persona conceals!

For across the dance floor, his eyes found mine.
The music was heaven, his...Read More
