Saturday nights are for disco dance.
The band has a natural knack,
Musicians are on fire
Playing in liquor bars
We are all hopping
A jam session
What a beat!

PEACE is Time Stamped
From very far away heard the death.
Each word pounded against silence
Withered breaths of mine panicked
Reality forced a
whisper in the ear,
faded were gone.

my friend…
Please, transcend.

Begin to bend…
with courage, defend
soul’s ache for Love to spend.

Free your heart; let arms extend
around this earth and back again!

Profits portend Divine dividend!

Colors of autumn make me smile
Golden browns, russets, scarlets too
Sky today looks vibrant blue
Squirrels leap tree to tree
Gorgeous autumn day
Crazy pretty

Premium Member Scented Leaves

Seasons change and trees teach us lessons
In colorful ways, letting go
Embracing new things to come
Even while feeling bare
I watch it happen
I can smell fall
Scattered in

He is the best mate for me of course
Pitching in and doing extra
Always taking care of me
Driving me to work now
While I conserve strength
He's my hero

splendid connoisseur
for your bottle, monsieur
savor worthy, need succour
possess sparse palate, amateur
grand restaurateur entrepreneur

Lurking Work

A  jerk,
Born to irk,
We cannot shirk,
Manager  or  clerk, 
He makes us go berserk,
In  every  corner  he'll  lurk,
Well then, what's his positive perk?
Payday brings on our faces - a SMIRK.

Ricotta and meat cannelloni,
a pizza pie (pepperoni)
with cheesy macaroni,
followed by spumoni.
Holy cannoli!
Roly poly

our love decrees sworn with guarantees,
you  appease  my nape as  I tease-
we  echo love in the  breeze,
this  Aries does  appease-
your scent in the trees,
warmth in the freeze;

shan’t cease...

  The moon decided to hide one night
 So he slipped behind clouds in flight
 But twinkling stars were still there
 Sending out distant flares,
 When the clouds parted
 The moon started,
 To then gleam

Crimson twilight, stained glass sunsets bled
Frost tipped flowers of summers fled
Migrating flocks, southwards led
Gatherings to break bread
Chrysanthemum spread
Autumnal bed
Wind sped

got way too fat
So when that cat shat
on Papa's brand-new hat
he was punished tit-for-tat
Now forced to dine solely on rat
Pat's polecat said grace for meals, then spat

A solar dragonfly, flies in light
Above a pink flower each day
It’s mesmerizing to watch
It looks alive to play
With plastic blue wings
Moves back and forth
Simple things
Bring smiles

Joseph's garden chores
It’s autumn in garden leaves do blow

Tidy up time start with hedge row

Then cut down weeping willow

Weed flower beds with hoe

Lots of grass to mow

Plant potato

Seeds to sow

Let's go

Dusk  sky
Blurred blues dye
Clouds  creep in sly
In storm surging high
Bird of crushed wings I fly
Find in debris wrecked nest lie
Hued dawn lifts new sun I descry
Your lush lawn blooms I turn butterfly.

Premium Member WISH UPON A STAR
I want my dreams to come true tonight,
For the stars to line up just right.
So everything can shine bright;
And love will be in sight.
True love can take flight,
It'll be so tight.
A just fight;

Candlelight Invite Night
Stained glass candles are winter's delight.
Pulsating prisms pierce frost's bite.
Shadows flap like birds in flight.
With mystery and might,
smoke lifts like a kite.
We embrace tight

In sandy dunes on my back I lie
Dreaming of warm beaches, blue sky
And a girl named Lorelei
On memories I fly

I vow to try

Nine time I tried to write this to you,
Then tore it up to start anew.
I know this is overdue;
I’m guilty through and through.
I shall always rue
Missing my cue. 
Love me too.
