My stomach's like a rumbling pit
           That any moment may explode.

Premium Member Sibling Of The Same Mother

We must not take everything for granted
Freedom of speech, your voice
Poverty and war
ravages in large parts of the world

What is important to focus on
A dialogue with respect,
whether one agrees or not

One must listen and learn
as sibling of the same mother

Premium Member Our Last Great Day Together
We stood next to rainbow waters
Not noticing their beauty for we were children
And rainbow waters were our normal

We had brought our nets
Because we had both broken our fishing poles
Sword fighting with them

Our mother had warned us
But we are six and...Read More

Frozen Ripple Of Moments


When in hued horizon the crimson sun rose
I saw you flash across my dew latticed meadow
Chromatic glare of dawn flushed your satin face
On the flow of time ripple of my moments froze.

The glint of your seraphic eyes glistered on me

Forty-seven degrees! A heat wave after the below nine’s we had been having.
Let’s go swimming! I yelled to my husband who was still curled up in a blanket.

Whatever Weekend

Being humble common pathways ere,
I ought traveled nearby that lea,
Past the margin of my home there,
Where the daffodils fickle sprightly,

As I shared the natural trail lead,
General impressions befall o'er sunlit,
E'er lighthearted to the bird's melodies,
I travailed the character of...Read More

Premium Member The Edge of Summer
I hear a distant, gay twittering,
Night's at the edge of the moon;
I see the butterflies flittering,
Spring waits at the edge of June!

I see the myriad blooms invading,
Crowded to edge of forest green;
In their glorious colors parading,
At the fragrance of noonday...Read More

Beloved Lord Jesus
Beloved Lord Jesus!
How I do love Thee.
Worship and adore
Thee. Pleading for
mercy.  Falling,
Falling face down 
before Thee.
I pledge mine
sacred honor to Thee.

Beloved Lord Jesus!
How wonderful fair
Thou are.  More
precious than
diamonds.  And
more valuable 
than either
silver or gold.

A world of darkness that's a void of emptiness inside
A bottomless pit that has no end as you fall deeper
A wall of shame showing past regrets you cover and hide
A waterfall of sadness and sorrow that never dries it's a...Read More

Premium Member The Night I Entered a Rainbow
In the dead of night, I finally fell asleep,
Looking back, I'm sure it was much too deep!
For a dream within a dream, opened my eyes,
To being inside a rainbow, of new sunny skies!

A Pirate's Love
All across the continents I chased her
Following the rainbow to win her gold.
Hoping somehow, someday, I’d embrace her,
A treasure beyond price that I might hold.

Beyond the Seven Seas my ship has sailed.
Relentlessly, her smile I did pursue.
I am her Galahad,...Read More

Far, Yet So Close
Verse 1:
When the sun peaks from the mountains,
It peaks from my windowpane of pain
I can feel the rain as it goes oh so insane
I am crying, crying, crying many fountains
Trying, trying, trying to find where you been

Sputtering, sputtering, sputtering like...Read More

Like  lightning in a stormy night 
Her Heart forgot its rhythmic schemes 
Missed several beats
A baffled smile came first 
Then a rainbow burst with all its colors on her face

Premium Member Flavors Of Ecstatic Bliss
Sweet-n-sour pours
from heaven’s ethers;
the taste of crimson and
citrus metamorphoses
and a lemony-sugar
tipped with ginger
plays across the palate.

Mind to body and back again
neurons dance in 4/4 time
to the flow of colored
syncopation;
taste of lavender
and pink cinnamon-coated,
 rose hips;
yellow chamomile soft,
relaxing and savory.

site sitting
night ends
all shadows

but street 
lights begin 
creating new

cathedral steps
become my seat

with the sun 
now set i sit 
looking as

passerbys make
no eye contact

yet i see
the man
selling

water and
the rainbow

dressed women
with fruits of
other colors

selling tastes
of sweetness

and selling to
take a photo
with them

the bell tolls
