Premium Member Sylvia's Flower Garden
Musky fragrance inundates
my nostrils as I enter 
the garden center:
a rhapsodic feeling
in idyllic surroundings.
The air is humid
like an Amazon garden,
heat barely tolerable
making my glasses misty.
Soft music, dulcet and sweet,
swamp the amazing conservatory. 
The caterpillar had shed off its chrysalis,

An October Haunt
A new ghost in this ethereal sleeve
Fresh from the new dug grave that reaked of death
By chance he morphed on this Halloween eve
It was not yet in him to moan and gasp breath

Fresh from the new dug grave that reaked...Read More

Premium Member Ugliness
Ugliness lingers
when beauty is gone
much further divided
than dusk is from dawn

I reference not
the figure or face
but rather the heart
of our lost human race

We fancy ourselves
as noble and great
yet treat one another
with hearts full of hate

And day after day
with greater aggression
we...Read More

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
it didn’t...Read More

Premium Member Gingerbread Cottage Fright


At the edge of a wood, in days of summertime,
Lived Hansel and Gretel, once upon a time;
Whose dear father, a poor woodcutter,
Could no longer earn their bread and butter.
Late one night, a conversation overheard--
As from sleeping, the children had been...Read More

Intricate dull summer, autumn's scourge,
Dog day noons, sultry dusk undress the night,
Mirage, sweaty foreheads entertain an oasis,
Rise of Fall, leaves, plot ere barked disguises,
Autumn's quarrels, chartreuse hawks verdant green hue,
Spar shades, tones, pigments re, imagination,
Expelled from hold, abandon o'er cold,

Time flies so swiftly, indeed. Tells the dates on the calendar 
A gathering in a  friend’s house, I could still remember
One friend could not make it, and we all missed her.

Rise of Fall, leaves, plot ere barked disguises,
Autumn's quarrels, chartreuse hawks verdant green hue,
Spar shades, tones, pigments re, imagination,
Expelled from hold, abandon o'er cold,
Huddled neath shedding sunshades,
Sun pierced, stains owned ardor brown,
Wrinkled facing fertile lengthened passage,
Refreshed, sprouts anew.

Premium Member Must Stay Strong


Must stay strong, writing humor helps a lot
At times like this, it seems like it's all I've got
Helps me through this ordeal
Thought I was strong, very unreal
Hoped it was my imagination, just a devious plot

Apt art aids
Prompt plot paid


Etch etch earns
Late lob learns


Glimpse good grade
Trust tough trade


Craft clear core
Meet much more


Ply prompt praise
Rest rude raise


Make minds meet
Grace good greet


Treat taut taste
Weed wills waste


Sift soft stakes
Mad mind makes


Graft good gist
Lure lame list


Words work well

Pine Cathedral
Deep in the woods, nearly three miles back,
far from New York with its tall glass and steel,
on a low ridge that has no proper name,
I stumble on something that feels surreal.

An old-growth forest grove, somehow survived
the thirst of furnaces and...Read More

FOREVER SWORN TO SECRECY
Who did it
Whodunit
I really do not know 
But this evening
I will see 
This truly iconic show

The Mousetrap* it is named
its claim to fame I hear 
Is “the world’s longest run”
Now in its 67th year

Today there's a dissing of Shakespeare
   His penning's dismissed as old-hat
Take time to get know him --
   He's wittier than Dr. Seuss' Cat

Many point to the Merchant of Venice
   To prove he was anti-Semitic

I'm returning home
from a bag it yourself grocery,
and listening to an African-American novelist
respond to questions,
actual open-ended real NPR questions,
like old school inquisitive journalists once asked
before the polarizing days and nights
of fake right/wrong answer questions
and their concomitant fake avoid entrapment non-responses.

The Friend You Forgot
The times your side was only me, 
help, protection, you no longer need,
emptied our friendship now history, 
you’re not my friend, you’ll never be.

I was the true friend you forgot,
wanted best for you never not,
take your side against the lot,

Fate
by Wayne Wysocki

A gypsy told me destiny
Has etched the road ahead --
Someone else expressed that we
Can plot a course instead.

While worldly scholars speculate,
Perhaps the truth goes thus:
The universe just shows the way,
The rest is up to us....Read More

Premium Member Red Herring of Lapsing Time

Fall’s felicitous red herring —
the mystery of leaves morphing.
The autumnal applause fairing.
Verdant heat and daylight dwarfing.

The horologic ticker chimes,
as lines are drawn on pumpkins patched.
Gramps, it’s apple picking time. 
The scarecrow’s wise with balding thatch.

Forensic crisp of maple leaves —

Oh, what a poet I could be,
If it wasn't for Babslou93.
Each day new words come thick and fast,
Each one I think I'll make the last,
But no, I can't resist the lure,
I send a stonker right back to her.
Then back she...Read More

Alone 
I feel myself slipping into the darkness of an abyss.
Drowning grasping at complete nothingness with a stinch of death and despair.
Mind racing of thoughts I normally can’t recall, viewing in my mind like a slideshow.
Continuing to fell myself fall,...Read More
