Premium Member DANCE CONTEST

Arrogance and Poetry tried out
for a dance contest, 
Simply "stoned" with the idea that
they were the best.

They sat at a table, pointing out
errors in others.
Forgetting to have a heart and
compassion and that all dancers 
are sisters and brothers.

The Curse of a Motor Mower
They’re motives of the weekend - they’re a gardener’s saving grace,
buzzing up and down and ‘round and ‘round cleaning up the place.
There’s nothing like the latest smell of a freshly mown down lawn,
once you ease a hiccup which can cause...Read More

Pathological Liars
Every word is gospel according to their stories
Teenagers would never file a false report
I remind them to begin with“Once upon a time”
My children only tell the truth “just because”
Simplicity with rocks inside the head works fine
Soft words flow...Read More

Crumpling Paper
	By J.R.Wren

Caw, Caw, the voice is rusty and the fry will always be true
The crows don’t know a suit, a camera, nor a comma splice

Can’t touch the holographic Xmas tree
no carols play amid the on-line crowd
no greetings – lest offense be taken
the “money changers” temple rules again.

No Red Faced Santa rings a call to Alms
just pop-up ads that beckon further debt
the sleighs replaced by...Read More

In the back streets of my mind,
I play again the games of my childhood.
Vehicles few and far between, to interrupt our play;
Our soccer ball, leather scuffed by tarmac,
Thuds against the goal, chalked on the wall
Of Mr. Thompson’s house.
Until, his patience...Read More

By: Tom Wright

Having never been gifted,
with a lodestar.
Public speaking,
isn’t listed in my repertoire.
So I often stammer,
while feeling red faced.
Pursuing opportunity,
to exit, post-haste.

On the tips of our leaves, a slight touch
a whisper to make us all blush
as it riffles our tresses
with icy caresses
our limbs going stiff
as we submit 
to Autumn’s

Look for the black and white cow,
the water tower,
the high school where astronauts
grew up to be dancers.
If you come from a foreign land
truck-stops provide rest and release.
Be sure to always wear plaid.

on US 33,

On cleared and cultivated land,
exotic weeds and thistle stand,
whose seed is sought in great demand,
so farmers gain a helping hand.

This alien now does belong;
common is this bird’s distinctive song.
Spring courtship and a breeding throng;
autumn flocks keep bonding strong.

A buffy wash...Read More

Premium Member The Aliens and Me
The aliens landed in the wrong back yard.
Next to the apple tree of a hippie, and a bard.
I was a willing subject, which made them mad.
I like being naked, it makes me glad.

They probed my shoulder, they probed my knee.
They...Read More

Wrestling naked bears in the fleeting flames of folly

Alone against the backdrop of hazed mountain
lone fireflies pour from moon’s lightning fountain
challenging the red faced lady bugs
to go away - there’d be no parting hugs

Obese owls panting warn their mousey prey

Nor a distant memory 
But the ground roots of our livelihood
And our future destiny.

When the final bell will sound 
To mark the end of education

A squawk too far
I love my green and feathered friend a bushel and a peck,   *
But there was one occasion when I could have wrung her neck!

She's normally so well-behaved, but on that fateful day
When Aunty Pat came round for tea,...Read More

no punctuation

The Arrogance of The Present
How, I wonder, do present people not
realize that what they do has been done?
That all their new fads, their new ideas,
have all had their day under the sun.
That we have lived without religions,
that gay unions have happened before,
we’ve muddled up...Read More

The Game Of Life
I've experienced many things in my life

in trouble through a trouble filled childhood

the razor sharp stones, feet cut up and

Ego And The Great Beyond
