God's Symphony Called Life
English quintain

Understanding God's clear voice as a youth 
a purpose on earth, therein one can find
in His Word there rests remarkable truth.
Love God with your heart, your soul and your mind.
Second, as you love yourself, love mankind.

God knows the secrets...Read More

Premium Member Offer The Other Cheek

To offer the other cheek seems weak
but it requires courage not to fight.
Jesus bequeathed the Earth to the meek
who don’t seek revenge for every slight,
for two wrongs will never make a right.

Violence begets more violence,
opening doors that cannot be closed.
And...Read More

Duke of York Uncorked
Prince Andrew in the press is tried, but he denied
both far and wide, as Duke of York (soon Earl?),
a train of thought upon the side,
a rain of sweat upon a girl.
Please, cork that Duke before I swirl!

The train popped from the tunnel into bright

This train of tears will not cease;
I have travelled far the bitter tide,
tried desperately to stem the flow. No peace     
is found. Like a bobbing cork I ride
upon the storm, unsatisfied.

Premium Member Once Upon a Time
Once upon a time, we traveled around Europe very far.
It was our honeymoon, and on a train
inside the comfort of our room in the sleeping car,
you popped the cork and toasted to everlasting love with our champagne.
Long years we tried...Read More

The train was like a long caravan chug, chugging along,
and my destination was far, and in a place quite remote;

Premium Member The Trouble with Forks
So far, I tried apple a la mode
Train my tongue to catch sugar's festoon
Upon tines, losing sweets I was owed
A fork won't cork my dessert boon
Now I eat my pie with a spoon.

Poets you set life free
Let’s take a ride, how about traveling, to outer space, 
Just accept anything’s possible, it’s our cosmic chase,
Moving faster than light speed, in the blink of an eye,
Unleash your imagination, laws of physics, don’t apply,

Maybe stay closer to home, getting...Read More

Where in the world will we find a solution
To the awful worry
Of world-wide pollution,
Which requires a revolution
To get underway in an awfully big hurry.

Do pay the instructions heed,
Thus you will avoid suspicion
Of a brain out of condition,
Or simply that you cannot read!

The Last Planet
The last planet on the left
Empty of passengers still
Within their own borders spin
In orbit around themselves
While exiting the solar system

Leave everything behind the sun 
Large objects have a tendency
To carry too much weight in space
To stop reflecting on themselves

Loving her softly and delicately
His intentions were easily seen
He was a man who quietly got on one knee
He was good-looking and totally lean
But she had to say no for she was the queen

Her magical act causing applause
Never one to bow or genuflect
Or read any missive to its smallest clause
She made her own rules, created her own laws

With fabulous luck luster delight and
The crickets sings chorus
Little somethings nesting in trees 
In holes in the ground

Lisboa é boa*. Yeah, Lisbon is good
at very long distance of dreams.
The shivering traveler pulls up his hood:
it seems that the traveller misunderstood
what’s autumn in Portugal. Streams

of water run volubly down the steep streets,
the wind searches pockets and sleeve,

Lou Ann and I were so excited
while walking to the high-school dance.
