Premium Member Out of Time
It was a beautiful day for a picnic in the park,
We all thought we would stay there until dark.

Just enjoying the peace of a late summer bliss,
Like a departing lover engages you with a kiss!

We lunched on good food, and...Read More

Premium Member Having a Bad Decade
I'm having a bad decade
  OK, I'm having multiple bad decades
In fact, haircuts had a rough stretch there
   in the seventies, but they survived
Don't know if I'll come out alive...

Folks are so relaxed these days

Slim and Chance
This is the story of Slim & Chance,
Always peacock-ing and runnin’ game
Dubbed the neighborhood know-it-alls
No two stories were ever the same.
Flashing names like badges
Like detectives on a case.
Til the tangled web of lies
They wove gave chase.
Tryna get by on the...Read More

From George Washington’s Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior:
#54 Play not the Peacock, looking everywhere about you,
to see if you be well decked…

upon her head - peacock-in-style. So sly,

From Sea, Earth And Sky, All The In Betweens

So sweet, splashing waves of Spring's fawning crest
beauty dear sent at Nature's kind behest,
vivid sprouting colors, its brilliant sheen
fresh dawn's soft-born glows, its peacock like preen!

Invigorating as earth, wakes to live
splendorous as...Read More

The Phoenix is unique.
This gentle herbivore has magical powers
Which people seek.
Let's look at it's physique.
It has a scarlet colored swan body, autumn colored 
Feathers that softly glow in the dark, and a 
Peacock tail that is hot to the touch...Read More

The mysteries and, of course, the murder
are all revealed in a parchment envelope
marked ‘Confidential’ 
and placed beside Mr. Boddy 
along with his deceased wealth of knowledge 
in the cellar.

Professor Plum, noted metaphysician,
sipping sherry in the conservatory
points out that we see...Read More

The Last Word...
You and me, 
we are free...

You should be happy, 
I no longer have the right;
to make your dinner, 
clean your clothes, 
fold them and put them away. 
I no longer have the list...

My Spirit Animal Is A Zoo
Beware the morning tiger
Before his first coffee
  Look out for the afternoon lizard:
  Ectotherm on the sidewalk soaking in other people’s acknowledgement
    On occasion I’m a hummingbird

Consciously Calling Christmas
consciously calling Christmas
dangling days damped;
a punctured peacock
two tulips torn
three mists moaning
four figs fracases

five oaks fostering
six seals scrunching
seven clouds clustering

eight horizons hankering
nine nymphs nosing
ten tales twisting

eleven visions vying
twelve thrones tumbling.

I's on the roof of two storey building
Saw you from far sight crossing paddy fields
Juvenile youth made mind embroidered path
I walked there step by step behind the dream
Empty hand seized the heart...Read More

In the absence of complication,
intricacies of wayward living,
matters emphatically mitigated,
compelling conclusions, well-received,
extenuating circumstance accomplishes,
impressive consequences, be enduring,
proffers a conciliatory concession, 
for toward said conclusion, we pray that all our
trials and tribulations become distant memories.

Above sapphire skies delight sanguine eyes -

The graceful face innocently glow
Half closed eyes, celestial and soft
The half parted lips twinkle a smile.

Face mirroring images of the mind
Swimming in her own dreamy world         ...Read More

Premium Member These All Were You
I had many words,
hadn't need ink
though I wrote into inside paper

without body
some peacock feathers
greeted me
to some night west stars,
a star eyed me

on a planet
I panted thousands acre trees
there birds built their nests
I was loving all birds crossing seven seas

I was...Read More

Pearly tears
Though out of breath,
she ran through the crowd
Muscles contorting,
showing her determination and strength
"I can't wait to show him off" she thought out a loud
The sisters would be green with envy
I will show them
yes! Gato can get to the acme

As I stare at the peacock on the limb,
his flutters were awkward and grim.
He looked out of place, lost and alone,
who will help this creature,who'll atone?
His eyes are blank and he doesn't blink,
out there by himself he's on the brink.

The fairest fowl
Epitome of ostentatious pride,
the peacock, glorious in regal stride
parades his flowing train of turquoise green.
His crowning glory bursts in bold array,
a mesmerising optical display;
the greatest pageantry there's ever been.
And then begins a courtship of romance
as eyes entice in hypnotising dance

The peacock struts, it is a sight to see
Spreading a fan of its color with glee
Iridescent tails that are green and blue

I was thrilled as a peacock

With money leftover for a soda

 He was a bold color artist, painting bright 
pigments of rose blossom pink, 
tangerine treats and peacock waves, just right;
occasionally working in pen and ink.

He was a brave thinker and his artwork palette
bore whispers of daring thoughts.
Had he sculpted;...Read More

Where once I saw the sun
flare like a peacock,
fish bones hiss
on a shale whipped beach,
banshee’s are dredged from sandy graves,
spume slaps nests of air.

Waves boom inside my beached ribs.
I am so full of sadness
that I hear myself mew
like a gull...Read More

There are rocks of every color, shape and size. 
The ones that fall from the sky, they flatten you. 
Not really expecting it, 
caught off guard,

You have no partner. Did you ever have one? 
When did they really leave?
