disguised tears of a clown
smile turned to wretched frown
behind makeup his eyes glazed over
at the sight of daisies and smell of clover
in summer fields last saw his love
flew off to heaven she gentle dove
his heart in pieces shattered

A Sad Requiem On Old Age And An Unfulfilled Love

repugnant morbid thoughts brought icy shivers, sin its due
rising to grab winter's hard frozen breath, gave all it takes

Those that came before were empty of the need to lie
And most of what is bad ,  including deception 
And the evolutionary defects we have now ;

Those that came before had a purity we now ignore 
Knew only what...Read More

Today is a yellow day
everything is so blaze’
I’m sure to have my way
If I don’t have much to say.

We snip, we snarl then
it’s makeup time.
The next few moments 
are so sublime.

The trees fly by stately
in their own way.

Premium Member The Dimension of Love
On a balmy evening, I was out enjoying a walk,
Admiring the flowers and scenery on my block;

Moonlight poured, and nobody else was about,
Because I had become restless, I had gone out.

Fireflies were dancing, reminiscently green,
As roses recall to mind the...Read More

The Essence of His Love
The comfort of his embrace
Makes me smile so.
My head rests on his chest
As he reaches around me.
Strong and gentle hands
Capture the very essence
Of his true nature.
He imbues a warm and inviting
Personality that shines
As bright as the stars.
Heeding paternal wisdom,
Chivalrous manners
Denotes...Read More

a blur of life
frozen in eternity
one moment caught in time
its speed come to a halt
memories that never age
captured in photo
a tapestry on celluloid

Life is a collection,
and series of choice.
Understanding and learning,
helps give us our voice.

Some choices are easy,
and some can be hard.
Make each choice yourself,
and deal your own cards.

We are what we do,
and not what we have done.
Don't sell yourself short,

A Whimsical Trope 

Life is a circus
Of acrobats and clowns
Everywhere a scammer
Ready to take advantage.

Humpty Dumpty was clumsy
Rather dull and not very bright
Who never knew right-side up
Or downside wrong 
And so became a criminal.

Bring the cannon
And bring the handcuffs
Today we...Read More

Commercialism
Habits are difficult to break…
and when lethal it is as if trying 
to scale a fence with barbs at the top. 

Smoking, drug addiction, 
bad relationships
attach to one’s spirit like flypaper
or gooey-spider-webs, entrapping
the soul, gumming-up divine essence
making it difficult for...Read More

Rivers and lakes flowing gladly
Around dead things deep down inside
Dead cans, dead fish, dead bodies

apparently none of all that is theirs
he sits there outwardly immune

Yesterday I owned the world

SKY CANVAS
Sky’s wondrous canvas
Displays divine artistry
Beauteous handiwork*
Master whispers grand designs
Clouds with bliss serenely paint.
