Premium Member Beaver Moon
In the wee hours of early dawn
Beaver moon was shining upon
Spreading her earnest radiance 
On the lake that was calm

Her shimmer was silvery bright
Transforming darkness into light
Spilling her numinous beams
She brought so much insight

I am seeing you see

this gaze confirms it is me

Accumulating with abundance from Christ’s compassion*-store

Midst my squeezable trait
I give kindness with whole earnestness
Loading out forgiveness with forbearance-cheer
Maximizing offered provisions up to...Read More

Premium Member Sunshine on My Doorstep
I awoke to the sight
Of Sunlight.
He splashed into my window.
He filled the halls.
He climbed the stairs.
He turned around
And went out the door.
From my window
I watched him,
Walking with light footsteps-
Everywhere.
People walked past him
Hurriedly,
As if they didn't know
That he was there....Read More

Premium Member The Vanity of the Flowers
Blooming colors in shade and sun;
Fragrant elegance, not to be outdone!
In field, garden and flowerpot,
The rose, the violet, and forget-me-not.

Proud and erect upon the stem,
All who pass must notice them!
Pastels and deeps; an array of brights,
Blaze the days and scent...Read More

"I Say To The"
Can you see me? 
Your eyes open but not wide.
Ears finding sound tho the message still hides.
Things we take for granted on the outside, 
easily turn against you. 
Feeling they were forgotten, left behind.

I cannot see them directly but observe the effects of their presence.
I cannot speak with them but hear the sounds of their voices.
I can touch and feel them as they pass with a gentle whisper.
Sometimes it seems they are angry...Read More

She mesmerizes and calls to you in a way I never can.
Her beauty is superficial and only skin deep,
But you see her and cannot turn away.

Its Crippling Me
The way it chokes me up, wrapping its hands around my neck
It’s crippling me.

My chest caves in, my hands tremble, my body sweats.
It’s crippling me.

I feel vulnerable, scared, anxious, and shameful.
It’s crippling me. 

I can’t eat, I can’t think, I...Read More

Flames
I'm not alive, 
but indeed I grow
even more yet 
as I'm fed.

I have not lungs, 
but must have air
and space 
for my outspread.

No mouth have I 
wherefore to lie, 
but I'd consume lives
with my power.

If it's me that you

Thor's Well
Fierce and treacherous at high tide;
Calm and alluring at low tide.
Reminiscent of Woman.
The Reasoning escapes Man:
Distilling myth and legend;
On superstition, hell-bent.
Calm and alluring at low tide;
Fierce and treacherous at high tide.

Good times
Good times, who are you?
I hear you are a hyena
sleeping during the day in peace
hunting at night with torches
but disappear at dawn
when beggars are waking up

Good times where are you?

Premium Member CLIPPED WINGS

They think it “cute”
when I do my perched two step
not so much when I repeat
words I wasn’t meant to hear.
They took the mirror out
“It confuses him”, they said
“He thinks it’s another bird”
Not so!!  When I pecked
its vacant eyes

MY LAST WORDS OF A STORY
I have no tears to shed
What is done,, it is done
I have no mercy to give
Words that leave the lips
Cannot be rectified

To share my experiences
To honour my upbringing
To feel my constant pain
To cherish my parents

Relativity
Escher’s relativity* has become the norm
Unique but the same
Light and dreary 
Fun and weary
Memories fondly collected over the years
Now darken my doorstep with their optimistic smiles

An invariable treasure chest of broken promises 
Dreams lost to Necessities
Life is not about choices
