White winged creatures flying across the blue
High and blithe in crispy crisp dimension
They've no use for the likes of me and you
Would live quite well without our attention

Majestic they climb the stairs to heaven
Their carefree wingspan slicing through the air

Cadaverous Glare Of The Gutter Press
Translated by Przemyslaw Musialowski 3/10/2019

Unleash media hounds, 
tell them to bark and bite, 
let latest news 
of foamed breeze
flow from the muzzles.
 
Send out into the ether, 
let the whole world hear Polish loud voice, 
let omnipresent smallness hit
the headlines.

On that fateful day in August arriving late, so unusual for me
For I am always early; did I know deep down what the verdict would be
As soon as I walked through that door, the neurologist told me my fate

She was Ruth, their only daughter
Set out one day to roam the globe
Instructed to the nth degree
Dressed with a flare of exotic
She was cultured, had travelled far
A lady of society
Affectionately loved her folks
Though their advanced age sadly showed
Unable to maintain...Read More

Premium Member CHRISTMAS SURPRISES
Our first year together
My husband
God bless his heart
Decided he’d go shopping
You guessed it
T’was Christmas eve
We’ll say up front
The man’s on crutches
And despises shopping
To the nth degree
But off he went
Into a small pharmacy
Loaded up his cart
He did
Imagine my surprise
On Christmas morn

Fake Things
What I loathe are the fake things
 Porcelain smiles, cardboard handshakes
 Laughter so hollow, it echoes
 Nebulous promises forgotten 
 Just as soon as they are enunciated
 Pretence when none is needed
 Feigned sincerity that even

The Smallest Calf
The Prince was wicked pertinacious,
picky to the 'nth' degree,
inclined to be quite perspicacious
when considering Number Three.

The first had sadly disappointed,
not come up to scratch, you see,
and number two was ill-appointed
for a run at royalty.

His Princess must be slim and cracking!

The straightest blade
trembling t'wards dawn's path today
anorexic pale horizons lay
starved of light, of hope
sans by your leave or come -
I cried, i sighed
'oh.. stay with me
please.. please.. pleas ..
hold my emptiness'

pale yellow sheets became worn grey
presumption rinsed of five o'clock -

Azaleas putting on spring frocks of
Beautiful shades of salmon or pink.
Calling bees to pollinate;
Delighting humming-birds with drink.

Everything is new in spring,
Fruit trees gorgeously attired.
Gardens turning up their soil,
Hoping we will be inspired.

I am the happiest of all,
Joyful with the sights...Read More

		When reminiscing, I can clearly see

 		Life showed her gentle, smiling side as we 
		shared dreams and secrets to the nth degree
		and danced away most days quite happily.
