Premium Member FIRST JANUARY

Scented Leaves
Gold leaves are stirring 
Beneath my soles, scented leaves 
Like warm gingerbread wakes 
Prepping for the day 
Families give thanks 

See frost white cement 
Reminding me of cookies 
Oh the batches and tins 
This is how we know 
Christmas soon...Read More

The rain can tell you so much
It holds comfort 
It holds your pain
Hope and loneliness 
I remember the rain
Loving the gloomy look outside as a child 
The way it made hot days in Texas feel cozy 
The way it comforted...Read More

Running about the constellations,
with poetic ruminations.
Bouncing off planets gravity free
All I can romantically ponder.verily,
Is simply,you and me!
In a heavenly garden of our own.
With us both in wreaths of flowers
Inside an opalescent, shining tower.
Truly, I want no more than this,
To live...Read More

New Years Day  1998

New Year's day is here again,
once more a year is spent.
Alone I now sit wondering,
just where all my time went?

Another year older I am now,
but that's no great big deal.
For my life's but...Read More

Written: by Tom Wright

At times in life I’ve exceeded my expectations,*
Often being driven by my earlier laid foundations;
Most competitions end only after one was bested,
I wouldn’t know my hearts contents- until tested.

My heart leaps up for joy
For the music I hear is calming
Exciting every cell in my body

It’s still dark but I see some little 
Light illuminating  away the deadly...Read More

Guns blasting from the lot across the street,
Troublesome times that some appear to enjoy.
Without giving any thought to being discreet,
Drinking and seeking something to destroy.

Premium Member My New Years Resolutions Have Been So Great
My resolutions have been so great, so terrific, and terribly nice.

A New Year
The new year is here
2018 has come and gone.

to watch the glitter and people tweet.
The ball forever creeps.
Countdown to end this year,
some look with total sheer.
Drunk and sober stare up high
as the disco ball starts...Read More

First day of the year
I suppose I should be filled with cheer
Instead I’m where I wanted to be
In a state of balance finally
I don’t know what’s to come
Grateful I’m not feeling glum

Are the tears I discern in Thy eyes those of joy or

Those of sorrow?


Let me know without any undue delay


My heart cannot withstand the agony 

Thou silence has put me in!
