many days we walked
an unforgiving sun
beating down upon us
and at night
even the cold moon
seemed to curse us...

Seeing what no eye should see
our tears mingled with dust
and angry winds spoke
of the death of our people
our children, our old
succumbing to grief...

Our hearts...Read More

Premium Member When I Was Eight
I owned a warm breezed first Spring day
in radiantly refulgent sun
between billowed cumulative clouds
white as sailing sheets
on our vibrating 
shaking and tugging cotton clothesline
swaying multi-colored tops
and sun bleached blue jean bottoms.

Like God,
I looked curiously
warmly down

As industrious ants
with apparently urgent missions
I...Read More

A strange sort of comfort in the mood of the day
I hide in the darkness between rays of sunlight
I dont have a fever, but i feel sick every night

An Empty Heart
A heart that is empty that was once filled with joy and love,
Walls that crumble and cannot hold their captured image,
A chair old and threadbare, waiting, like her dreams- rejected.

Her eyes close as she passes by the old mirror-

They held hands for the first time.

Him , still a virgin.
A beautiful night of companionship,
That lasted a life time,
On that night of innocence,
As the bonding was formed.
A boy tiny in form was made.

Premium Member SHE GREW UP
Her parents use to read her Fairy Tales
she remember their voices…
their joy…
their laughter
which is why, she imagines, she grew up
believing in happily ever after.

She believes in bears that talk…
in trees that dance…
in wizards who can fly...
She believes a kiss can...Read More

Prayer Answered
By: Miracle Man

Each night I retire 
praying tomorrows circumstances will be different.

But before day is gone I’ve discovered,
the only thing that changed was,
I’m one day older.

And while not what I had in mind,
a prayer was answered.

Premium Member Death Came for Her on a Sunday
Death came for her on a Sunday. 
I have to fry the chicken for church, she argued.
Death hung out in a closet with mildew and stains.
She tried on clothes the victim would not need any more.

The Owl and The Wolf
I am an owl in the night asking, 'who-
Who' makes those lunic shapes in the distance?
It is the wolf howling under the moon.
She echo’s in the night, it’s a smooth trance.

I am hiding, perched up under and through,
Nestled in to...Read More

Can you feel the love tonight
The Holy birth's within sight
A Star's about to be born
In a stable all forlorn.

Just a manger for a bed
So the Babe may rest His head
Tiny hands and tiny feet
Feet to follow, hands to reach.

Sun approaching the quiet sea
Blue boats leaving port slowly,
Young girls playing with dolls
Andalus music with mint tea;

Call from the white mosque
Lights and silence in the city,
Perfume from pine trees 
Neighbors talking quietly;

Freshness covering the night
Mother closing windows gently,
Kitchen becoming lively

Seasons of Life
Dawn of spring,
Birds on green trees
Gardens are blooming
Smiles and babies;

Noon of summer,
Sunshine in blue skies
Brides are smiling  
Love and ceremonies;

Sunset of autumn,
Painters near the sea
Colors are falling
Silver and memories;

Night of winter,
Darkness in the city
Smoke is rising 
Tears and stories.

T'was the night before Christmas, on our last round,
Of delivering presents to this lovely town;
As we dropped the last parcel we broke out the wine,
Santa soon got too jolly and ran a stop sign.
First he swore, then he chuckled, and...Read More

To hear the bells

They are ringing with all their might
When it is Christmas time
On a hot Australian night

Whose face is as red as his suit
Who comes when the bells are calling now

A bird blares in the garden,

Oh,winter comes,he doesn't fly,
He just want to be a quietist

Made a tunnel at the end
They made a

And covered the hole
With logs and covered
The logs with iron plates

Came to the surface
They used bobcats
And frontend loaders

Straps, and wire, 
cutting ropes…
that make you bleed. 
Not that anyone can see, 
but they are there. 

We all have them. 
Some are worse then others. 
Some have lives,
that never…
feel peace.
The word safe, 
never spoken.

In The Beginning There Was Desire
First, there was a desire
The desire became an obsession;
The mind went out control,
He looked for a woman in the dark,
Night after night he searched,
One night she was there,
From behind he grabbed her,
Laid her to the ground and raped.

Secondly was the...Read More

Twas the night
Before Christmas and 
As Santa tries to
Go down a chimney
The fireplace was lit
And his pants caught fire
So, he hurries and 
Crawls back-up the chimney
Looking like a 
Ball of fire as he
Jumps into the snow
Trying to put the fire...Read More
