The Goldilocks Planet
Do you wonder about the sun ?
Is it now running out of gas?
What happens when it does, my friend?
I will tell you of Earth's last pass 

Each minute of every day
The Sun burns its gaseous core
Billions of years it has...Read More

Premium Member stalling at the crosswalk

stuck between smoke stack volumes
in alphabetical order
woven metal bodies
straight lines leaving little to the imagination

some big, some small
from exhausted paint rollers
leaving their mark
just outside of the jewelry store

crushed cigarette butts on the ground
falling between the cracks
of walkways reflecting diamond brooches...Read More

Something For Gregg
I was somewhere deep in Kansas,
on a Triumph 69’

When your song came on the jukebox,
and hit me from behind

I was headed for a bad place,
and cared for nothing much

When I heard the song ‘Melissa,’
my heart and soul were struck

Entranced, your...Read More

Hectic Red
Hills stack up on miles passed
Rolling down the mountainside
To take a chance on asphalt limitations
Black as night with traffic moving backwards

Poppies line the road as color globes
Fragrant red heads steadfast on stems
Held together with green and leaves
Cars try hard to...Read More

I'm Sorry
I'm sorry
My dog bit you
I kissed your sister
We ran out of gas
I ate the last doughnut

I'm sorry
I gave you mono
I wrecked your car
Made you late for work
Wasted your last dollar

I'm sorry
I stood you up
Wore your clothes
Lied about you
I posted those...Read More

To Be Not Me
I was never the person that I wanted to be
So changed myself for the world to see
I shrunk myself, inside and out
I did things that only I will ever know about

I wanted connection, to simply be alive 
My body, my...Read More

Spring Is In The Air
Winter is over and we're ready for Spring,
for flowers and bees and the birds that sing.
Today, in the garden center, I saw our first nest.
Watching the eggs hatch is Spring at its best.

But Spring on the coast is a fickle...Read More

Premium Member One Night Cut Short in a Haunted Manor

My car ran out of gas. I found myself
alone and walking down an unknown road.
I looked to find a house where I might stop
to call someone and then get my car towed.

The first house I could find was very big.

The minute of the car crash
Thoughts speed racing 
through my head.
Engine exhaust caught 
in my throat.
Hands gripping the 
steering wheel firmly.
Screeching of the tires
in my ears.
Random papers from
the glove compartment
scattered about the floor. 
My world is skidding. 
I'm almost out of gas.
Windshield wipers scraping 
without...Read More

To be or not to be just write poetry, if you run out of paper do not despair there is always a computer somewhere you can tip tap along it’s like singing a song.

High Peaks Holdfast
I shift my jacket close as wind blows past,
perched upon this dull, gray massif of rock,
below the throaty call of raven’s squawk,
cannot stay long, in Fall the sun won’t last,
cold can make a man run out of gas,
but rolling vistas...Read More

The bus sways from side to side on anonymous  bends 
Driver calls out stops and people shuffle off or on,
Not interested in the journey; but glad to be homebound.

Women with shopping bags look 
Fat and tired of holding up...Read More

Haunted places, haunted lives --
     Who knows the terrors trapped inside?
Out of gas and losing vigor, 
     His footprints are defined in flashes of light.

Spatters of mud ascend his jeans,

Shape The Mind
Lazy habits impress the brain,
Like trickling ink will cause a stain.
Throw out the cloth or cause it to smear,
It's like going for a walk, while holding a beer.

Sick people who don't get better,
Read the quote and understood the letter.
They knew...Read More

 The car pulled up and someone got out
 But it was not the person I'd been hearing about
 So I got back in the car and started down the road
 And I kept on searching for, Guitar Jones

Oh! Testosterone!
Where have you gone?
My motor seems to be out of gas,
Hard to get going, dragging my ass.

Oh! Hair!
Where have you gone?
No need to brush it out of my eyes,
Now my forehead is twice it's size.

Oh! Eyesight!
Where have you gone?

Imagine life is a journey in a car, without a map or a satnav.
You can only go forward, there is no turning back.
You only know where you are going to.
Your destination is ‘love’ and it has to be ‘true’.

Premium Member A Christmas Snow Angel - Part 1

The young lady's car slowed to a stop ...

As she pulled as far off the highway, (onto the shoulder), as she could
(Allowing for any snow plow that might come along).
She had chosen poorly this time
Believing she had enough gas to...Read More
