Just A Bagatelle
If it lasts it must be good or is it  just a bagatelle? 
Mountain tops inspiring cryptic lines that  vanish in some moth infested haze,
Boulevards beloved of budding artists whose mocha fueled creations stray off point,
Mother Earth obsessives...Read More

When you turn your boat’s bow
To the morning sun
And the mizzen now is shaded
By yellow sails
Your face is to the rising tide
And into the breeze
Scattering the churned waves
And God’s sparkle surrounds you

Bigger than YOU Think

The internet, 
is large... indeed. 
It starts here and never ends. 
It just starts over somewhere else. 

In the beginning AOL, 
time spent waiting to connect. 
Now we sail across the sea,

What Might Have Been
It's said a rising tide will lift all ships
And from what I have seen I've found that true
But also comes the wind that blows and whips
And sometimes sinks only a ship or two

For ships are made to float atop the...Read More

Most kids ride the school bus twice a day
School buses don't often have wood stoves
or beds you can sleep the night away
Ours did though

More than once I lived in one 
Some painted like a forest some with a double bunk

Premium Member The Beach
Along the water's edge, the grey waves
Break noisily in a white foam spray,
Curling carefully like well-permed hair.
Driftwood carried on to the shingle
Envelops the wind-blown plastic and
Frames torn pictures from worn magazines.
Gifts such as these on the rising tide,
Heaps and tangles...Read More

Our impulses does civilisation set out to control
Regulation rules.
Let slip society's commandments
And the feral runs riot.

Between the rational and the visceral 
There is a constant struggle
Identified so starkly in The Heart Of Darkness
Where unmoored from the diktats of custom

Premium Member To See Sea Sheep
Once wading through a rising tide
Against a bloody red suns glare
What should I see grazing on algae 
But several sea sheep were there!

I'm not sure how many there were
Not that the water was too deep
But when I tried to count...Read More

In its unpredictable fury
It relentlessly returns
Crashing just to plea
That you never cease to yearn

Yearn outside the square
That the world has neatly drawn
An irresistible dare
Un orchestrated song

Song to energize
The saddest of all hearts
Promising a prize
If only one could start

A journey of discipline
There exists an object with three arms
That signals the seconds we have that remains
Racing with the sun, moon and many stars.
A constant relay that turns all things grey.

There comes fun and lures along the same.
Making hearts merry and flat feet...Read More

One school shooting in Alabama
  And another in Louisiana

Here's a protest in the park
  That's gone on and on past dark

There's an angry rising tide 
  Demanding gun-violence to subside

and for the dying days

Of The Dreaded Scourge Currently Afflicting The Municipality And Environ Of My Nativity And Youth
This dread disease that has afflicted my home, 
This malady, this plague on my house;
This making convertible the former quaintness and provincialism thereof 
Into something wholly despicable and disgustingly homogeneous,
Yclept "cosmopolitanism," and "worldliness," and "globalization," 
(Or, perhaps "globalism");
That force of...Read More

Misty day
Today the mist rules, stolen horizon
in a merge of sea and dank air, sky
confiscated, parcelled in a grey 
patination like macular degrade.

Fields and village prematurely aged
to lie in a state of transience,
shrouded in mourning funereal garb
fashioning weighted reverend silence.

After The Glitter Fades
See how the green vine it grows.
Evening dew, moving so slow
I can't begin to keep the pace.

Open petals close, 
to rest against the open slopes.

I feel oppressed, as I undress
in Florida's, moist warm humid heat.

The Garden Of Our Year's
To day before tomorrow when it comes
As Irma, threatens U.S.
Year's have passed most by and in living
Dying have.

Cloud's that cross the sky have not arrived
And few will dance outside.
From the surge and rising tide that from the wind
One cannot hide.

Crestfallen Smile

Like lightning falling from heaven,
your last fling ended without warning
Bewitching Boston Creole buxom beauty,
your crestfallen smile told a tragic love story
Superhuman strength from an unknown source
moved you on your curvaceous Amazon course
I watched from a low hanging urban perch
as you...Read More

And Yet
Thinking makes it so
That’s what we all know
The way we want to go;
And yet, somehow, it isn’t

History has a side
A clear-cut rising tide
We’re caught up in the ride;
And yet, somehow, it doesn’t.

A correct way to live
With no need to forgive

Teddy Bears Boat Trip

The bears today have gone online
To check their Bank Account
It seems that now the book has sold
They have a large amount.

Deciding what to spend it on
A very anguished choice.
A car-a house-a plane- a ship
Decision made—Rejoice.

Fossil Fool
Our freedoms imprison us.
Even now we want more than we need,
tho' we do not yet know what we want.
We do without knowing,
we know without doing.

We do without nothing.

Scaremonger the tip of our iceberg hearts.
This is this race of a thousand...Read More
