Premium Member Balloon Man of Carny Lane
Here he smiles and there's such joy again!
Blue balloons and red; faces at the windowpane.
Now a green one, then a brown;
With his orange hair, why, he's a clown!

Sunrise yellows, pinks and purple;
Vivid colors attract little people
Each summer day without rain;
Every...Read More

Let's hold hands
"Let's hold hands."

I never wanted this.
I never wanted this.
But how did it get to this?
At first it was friendship,
Companionship they said!
Two hearts!
One mind!
We collide,like two birds in the sky,we flew on hope.
He wanted this,she wanted that!
I ran north ,she moved...Read More

Premium Member A Winter Debut


Surrendering fronds spread as
songbirds inspiration alights,
A wide-eyed newborn coos to
outer wonder in dressed whites.

Some children whispers in ears 
while playing, swing set in motion,
as bundled toddlers climb aloft,
pushed in thorough devotion.

Carpets of cool colors change midst
breaths of frost wind of...Read More

Cus Eye Right Randumb
On my two year anniversary 
a new verse too read
canny words set free
doctor said you need

Apples nutritious 
And grapes with pips in
Cables that trip us
And drapes for peeping

At sights kept hidden
Affairs and lovers
Secret keeping
Shared with others 

Handsome ransom

White old men are inviting me to supper
White old men are my dream
White old men are very clean
White old men want to kiss my lips

Premium Member Before the Concert
A cacophony of sounds, all jumbled together
   Random notes, dissonance everywhere

Violin bows saw the air lazily, effortlessly
   Then furiously, chins pressed hard to instruments

Flautists' lips wistfully poised above the holes
   In a flash, diving...Read More

Revelation
They always said I was "special" or useless,
full of excuses, slow to learn but my wit had a quickness,
so I decided to embrace my uniqueness,
and look at me now leaving people speechless.

They challenge me and their ego decreases,
they think I'm...Read More

On the fifth floor, and on the narrow staircases
On the fifth floor, and on the narrow staircases,
Porters raised the piano with angry red faces.
"My friends - you seems to like a light music?" -
Somebody asked them. The porters bruised him!...Read More

Is there any escape from noise
Is there any escape 
from noise?
A crash, a rattle, a spoon in a cup
No rest for the wicked
Insistent buzzing piled up

Blaring horns
Lighted signs
Engines screaming in ears
So many angered red faces
Social media fears

To sit idle and quiet 
Zazen tonic for nerves

Remember Remember
Knocking on doors,
Collecting wood,
Penny for the "Guy",
All was good.
Catherine wheels,
Whistling rockets,
Treacle toffee,
Stuffed in pockets,
Every neighbour,
From our street,
Deadly rip raps,
Dance at your feet,
Charcoal spuds,
Potato pie,
Kids with sparklers,
And big bright eyes.
Dancing flames,
What a sight,
Teenagers with air-bombs,
Gave grannies a fright.
Trays of Parkin,
Black Peas...Read More

Poppies Weep
Poppies clustering in an open field
While bright red faces wave above
The sun shining thru delicate petals
While more heads burst from below.

One single delicate flower it rests 
On a slender stem with no leaves
Its simple beauty is a picture of
Nature’s example...Read More

On the centenary of the Battle of the Somme - The Flowers of the Forest

Waving poppies, ruffled by the summer breeze, look up 
At the deep sky and warm sun, pillows of clouds gentle 
Contrast to the green below and the scattered red faces 
With soul black eyes. Children’s voices ring like distant bells,...Read More

Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding
Pub in Yorkshire with stout and ale aplenty. 
Red faces sweating with alcohol's influence. 
Singing fine songs in reverie and ecstasy. 
Salivating at arrival of that succulent essence. 

Tender juicy slices of beef covered with gravy. 
A splendour when touched...Read More

Silver Bells
Silver bells





Soulful kids play merrily in busy streets,
Iridescent glow on little red faces,
Longing to buy favourite candies,
Vibrant colours of frills on trees,
Eventually it is Christmas time!
Remember  those last year gifts?

Bells rhyme with dancing melodies,
Evening decor is worth a cherish,

CANYONS AHEAD
Two cowboys hungry and exhausted

one complained, " We need water! " The other yelled,
 " We must be vigilant and alert,
we need sleep! " Indians are treacherous and wild! "  
They wait for...Read More

Why

Why when leaves are dying their glory grades of green, red and gold adorn the world

yet when humans die their skins already start to fall apart; blue veins deepen,

brown liver spots increase and mauve red faces show pain and denial,...Read More

A Mothers Anger
“One more word, just one more word!’’ before I start to break,

I feel the anger rising up, I tremble and I shake.

I try to think it’s not their fault, their only little kids,

But it isn’t enough to stop the anger...Read More
