Premium Member The Dance of the Water Nymph
Despite the large orange flowering flame tree
That shaded my veranda, the summer heat was intense.
No amount of ice cold beer could quench my thirst.

A stone throw away was my lovely verdant wood.
It lured me towards a more comfortable place.
Iridescent hues...Read More

Her clothes have left her.
They have crossed the floor,
riding a camel train of shadows.

Tights have twisted to fleshy mounds.
A bra gawps twice, spine bent.
Shoes topple over drunken heels.
A black dress climbs a black chair.

A vision of him closing the door

The gypsy who loved
Like riding on waves wavering
not sure where it takes me
searching for a log just to hold on, 
but helpless, and alone in an abyss.

Slumber, how I wish a day's sleep
to keep everything aside, and rest,
in my beloved’s lap, that warm...Read More

last call for lonely hearts
Luscious 22, draped his lustrous golden curls on the counter vinyl,
astride the bar stool to my left, pouting thru the drunken miasma 
saturating the Torch Club, now eerily muffled as band instruments
tucked themselves, back into cushioned coffins. Immediately right,
casually reclining,...Read More

Snow,snow,so much snow
I wake up to my morning glow
Early morning sunshine
Chocolates,biscuits and puddings so soft
Christmas love all around
Riding on a sleigh,Mr Santa Clause 
Comes to my door.

Before The Gates Of Alahsar - Version - 2 - 10
All factors begin to come together,
deep within this song of Alahsar,
The Dark Man and Turvehr,
they are come upon the earth,
the storm begins to dissipate, 
the sky becoming light,
a mother calls no more,
the thunder is gone,
silence is ever deafening.
Turvehr's wings outstretched,...Read More

Phoenix rising
Phoenix rising

One can see the emptiness of ages in her eyes,
riding the beast of burden without disguise.
Dead to rapture and despair by daily routine,
taken another drag of smoke to be genuine.
Exchanging grieves for hopes by calling it insane,
which blew the...Read More

Three Ships Sailing

I saw three ships sailing upon the horizon, as dancing in the shimmering haze
Eyes strained as each momentary appearing, then disappearing from my gaze

Distance thoughts fell upon me, I silently wondered, to where each ship sailed
Each carrying its...Read More

"The Familiar"

Softly ever so Softly 
on hardened paws
follows the 
Red Apple 
scent of 
Her sword
a peony pink pocket flushed
velvet violent violet viola 
warm honey dripping 
from the pocket 
it buzzes 
as if with bees
and it burns

Softly ever so...Read More

Long before Fall, Elm trees thin their leaves,
And Elm trees are the ones we have plenty of.
Tiny little ovals turn tan and gold and green and drifting,
Riding on hair and clothes to fall off...Read More

Swallowing snot and hawking luggies
Weekend sleepovers and late night movies

Riding bikes and popping wheelies
Telling jokes and acting silly

Throwing knives and taking dares
Living life without a care

Just two boys wild and clever
Running the mountain having the...Read More

It's raindrops on my glasses
A bump in the sidewalk while riding my bike
A postcard not received and a letter never sent
It is an ignored text message and a call from an unknown caller
Closed roads when you are supposed to be...Read More

one year during early grade school, 
my father got brilliant idea 
for sole son dressed

I’m thinking of going out this Halloween
in costume as famous lady Godivar, 
though I risk not being recognized
and therefore my neighbors scandalized
at my daring and brazen behavior
not at all in keeping with her character.
Moreover I’d be arrested and tried

Ascending above sanctum of horizon, a dawn inflames the effulgent rays,

Glittering on grass in vivid dewdrops, glinting...Read More

Premium Member Do You Have A Itch, Glitch Or Twitch

Last night, riding across a full moon I saw a witch,

that funny move she made was a twitch.

Maybe her move was just really an itch,

the wooden broom she was riding on looked like a switch.

Could what I was seeing be...Read More

Before The Gates Of Alahsar - Version - 2 - 8
Now, let us watch as they proceed,
along the line of the river they go,
Cavalry, they are now riding,
to the front, the read and both flanks of the arachnids,
Slowly they move along, 
between the hillside and the river,

Premium Member GETTING OLD

how suddenly the good times
come to a screeching halt
in our youth we were wild
nothing stopping us
crossing boundaries
pushing limits
climbed the summit
we were crazy just insane
how we thought fun times
would last forever
never did we think
we would get old
riding on magic carpets

seasonal transitions
Proud daffodils have bowed their weary heads
And roses shed their petals one by one,
Green leaves transform to gold and fiery reds
The gilded reign of autumn has begun.

Farewell to fragrant bluebell woods of spring
And summer’s lush and verdant meadow grass,
In vain,...Read More

Search for Source While On Course

While we had been riding on a horse,
Searched countryside for each source,
We would need;
God did feed;
And He helped us to stay on course.
