Read - emption
Sumptuous suggestions straddle stagnancy
Summoned by engaging pages
Susceptible skulls imbibe vibrancy
Surmounting latitude notion ravages

Authors serve smorgasbord swathes of research 
Reading's pizza fuses flavours opposing
Issues investigated, valid views aptly asserted
Essays stretch perception, anomaly concepts provoking

Unfurling knowledge tunes recognition's accord
Rhizomes capacitate vertical fronds...Read More

We live every day,
We die only once,
No reruns of it either way,

Being almost late,
Is always on time,
We are almost late every time.

Our present moment,
Is our past moment,
Our future moment is now.

A tear from Heaven,
Froze top a mountain,
Goes on to feed...Read More

A bleak in the forest
Once in a while you realize you are worthy
An ocean of emptiness I conquered
A transcendental mind as gift
Why am I still barren?

Cruelty grows everyday within my realm
Nemesis hid my life in the fine print
I search for hidden knowledge
All in the...Read More

in the ocean of my sleep stars glow like fragile seeds
and I sail across the celestial tranquil black sky
where silence is hanging sublime

Plane Ocean Bed
Alba Gal swam down to the plane
It was the plane that brought her here
The remains of her Comet jet
In thousands of pieces at the ocean bottom
How the plane broke up was bad 
But how Alba Gal and the others
Lost their...Read More

They make me falter and they make me fumble

Fantasies hit me side by side but nevertheless

A Rock to Lean Against in the Hour of Need
Liberal and poetic translation of an extract from the verse portion of Lotus Sutra, Chapter 25 (Avalokitesvara Chapter).

Sentient Beings mired in myriad hardships, 
Who toss and turn and buckle under 
Relentless anxieties, the fog of uncertainty, 
Shall find relief in...Read More

Blue sky, honey rays, 
sonorous voice of the sea.
Waves silently creep
leaving slight spume, then slowly
draws a breath, taking footprints
into its deepness.

Looking Out From My Arctic Home
Here in the Arctic land here I stay
the coldest climate found anywhere
though in recent years it's warmer
makes one wonder feeling change of air

This brings these humans over here

A brand new car is what I love,
Love the body, the new car smell,
So to local luxury garage I drove,
that’s where I met lovely Shantelle!

Bright blue was the colour in mind,
A four wheel drive good for snow,
For my golf kit,...Read More

Premium Member Meanwhile back at the ranch
Visibility's dropped to near-zero
   Thermometer's plummeting too
Ocean tempest tossing and turning
   Spraying the nerves of the crew

Deck swabbed by torrential rain
   Passengers hunkered down below
Afternoon's slipped into deep shadows
   Danger's pulse glowers...Read More

Believing We Can
Written: by Miracle Man

Each day I'm reminded that God's in control,
it's important to notice, things He has made.
From placement in the ocean of each atoll,
to the forest and His placement of a glade. 

But we too, are known...Read More

"S is for Silence"

Once Love lived in a heart
a storm called S
ripped it apart on a 
sunny blue sky day
tears fell like rain 
in a broken cup of

swallowed by 
Respect who lay

An event that surfers know too well,
for it visits upon them, time and time, again,
and upon its occasion, it is best to parley.

Beach Walks

For years I lived by the ocean. Sea-scents 
wandering inside the house through opened 
windows, the sound of falling waves, in calm 
or raging weather, filling each room.

Walking the beach was part of my day’s routine, 
but not for philosophic...Read More

Did you see?
Did you look?
What do think?
They are so…   …   ?

Words heard directly, 
indirectly or by accident, 
but never by intent. 
Not things you would say…
to anyone’s face,
especially theirs.
Not things you would sing.

Preposterous bird!
Inelegant! Absurd!

Until the great & mighty heron
brandishes his fearsome sword.
