Be so rough on
so much breath
and sweetness ...
Grains adorn the

A lovely stone castle upon the hill;
emerald fields of grazing sheep,
await the shepherd’s return with, elated bellies.

Fountains gracing castle façade
send water arising to greet the heavens, 
as if to quench a shared thirst.

Tower turrets will pierce the clouds
bringing much-needed refreshment...Read More

Premium Member Diana's Dilemma
Who thinks wealth’s the gold standard? Prosperity rules?
Can you own a ‘Hope Diamond,’ or are we its fools?
Our best genes come from parents, high fashion’s jeans art,
Or the love we show others what sets us apart?

Does the power we garnish,...Read More

All the refreshment

If a man could drink
with his eyes,
then you are all
the refreshment
I could ever want or need.
Your skin is the color
of my coffee in the morning.
And as I kiss you with each sip.
It goes without saying...
I take my coffee...Read More

The Salon Of Forbidden Thought
The Salon of Forbidden Ideas
is a place where the free-thinkers go
to express their unsanctioned opinions
and explore what they aren't meant to know...

At twilight, they slip through the shadows
of the alley 'twixt Far-Left and Right,
wearing black masks and cloaks of red...Read More

I was never a great athlete, just a sub-par one at best.

Pretty Rain
Pretty Rain

Rose water 
Pretty rain 
Crisp refreshment
Sweet nectarous bloom 
A mild, potent fume
A graceful river flow
A breath of life
Floating delicate feathers 
Skies darker than blue
Sun of vibrant yellow hue
Rain maketh a bed in the earth 
For its heart to age...Read More

Premium Member I Felt Something Magical Coming
I felt your aura arrive days before you did; 
the sun shone brighter than she ever had.
She pranced in the garden, streaking the flowers, 
adoring the faeries, lifting my soul.
Something is about, I thought.
Something magical.
Not knowing it was you.

I knew...Read More

Abandoned Child
Your walk 
Through the wild urban path 
Under lampposts trees.
In vain you travel questioning 
The meanders of your grief.

The slimy paving 
Of a deserted gallery 
Echoes your steps of suffering 
On the silent columns 
Of a gothic front.

Slow the foot...Read More

Baby buds in bloom
a good, cool drink from

welcome refreshment
for newborn blossoms.

bright tulip cups
white narcissus

New old Masters
When I was very tired
After much long reading
Of today’s leading works
I sought the refreshment I need then
With a number of old friends
There was Emily, Robert and Rod
Longfellow and Wentworth too
Telling words so sweet and dear
These are the ones I love...Read More

Tourist Trails

Savouring the swathe of Southern England;
orchards, oast houses, open fields,
cliffs with caverns camera-worthy,
splashing sea and salty cooling breeze,
well-trodden trails, treasures from history,
hidden hostelries, houses of refreshment.

The descent from the Downs, dropping slowly
to moist meadows where men once toiled
among heaps...Read More

Listen to the tap…tap…tapping; the music of falling rain.
Sky rinses out it’s watering cans; It’s sprinklers are the clouds.
Gaia’s children are thirsty; roots stretch and heartily drink.

Gardeners collect water for the drier days; the children drink.
Rain barrels freshly filled; gardens...Read More

Gardens of golden threaded Cyprus;
evergreens perfume sings me halfway to sleep.
I breathe in the wafting scents of neighbor’s roses;
with elation my spirit weeps.

The drumming of leaping goldfish in a pond nearby calls to dragonflies and they zip by me; lovely...Read More

When the steam rises in the morn,
sun hot on body like reading porn,
salt cakes on skin that drips and stinks,
it's time to eat fresh crops of corn.

Humid air chokes breath with fire,
journeys plague--the need to pump tires,

In a West Coast State of Mind
Gentle fog
descends from the rooftops
as sleek tuxes
evening gowns

soft piano and bass

Is your mind in the gutter,

  Or perhaps it's your conscience
  which eats you alive with slanderous nonsense--
  about your ex, matters of sex, or your neighbor's pecs?
