Where Shall I Go
The moons and the tides
Strongly coincide,
Pulling up and away,
Tugging the sand from the bay.
My mind is a lot like the sea in that way.
It dips and it falls,
It falters and it crawls,
But then sometimes learns to just be.
To exist in...Read More

Travel
It was this world’s most popular word people use for a fancy trip they take “Travel”

I moved from painful events as I transitioned into all sorts...Read More

There once was upon a time
Stories written out of rhyme
Swirling yellow rows of bricks
Munchkins Witches playing tricks

House that fell in lady slippers
Hit the bricks cracks and chippers
Celebration follow the road
Starts the skip for this ode

Never seen me I was there
I'm...Read More

My Mistake
I took a walk on a road less travelled
And all around me there were weeds
And brambles.  The trees were bare
Of leaves and stood like frozen marble

I took a walk on a road less travelled 
And I became confused, and...Read More

Seeds of germination, future take shape

I killed myself
On a footpath of a street she lay,
It was dark outside her and inside.
Bruised hands, cut lips, dying soul,
She didn’t remember how much she had cried.

At the time he had left her and gone
And she hadn’t been ready for a...Read More

The Road Lerss Travelled
It's conventional thinking unravelled,
Waiting on the horns of a dilemma
With brand new ideas : the road less travelled,
Takes me back to sixty-five – the summer.
	Exams completed, leaving school behind,
I took a different route from friends and peers.
Engineering was what I...Read More

Oh! How it must have looked back then
How you looked oh so small
As you gazed into your future
In that mirror on the wall
Family is as family does
And God knows that we need 'em
But that image in the glass ahead

Bird in a guilded cage, a broken heart, a solitary soul
Road less travelled, a soul full of longing, my heart bleeds
On a wing and a prayer, my heart is a lonely hunter, a weary soul

Premium Member A Road Less Travelled
On the walls of an old rickety shed
  are names of sojourners who've passed this way;
now my wandering boot does older tread
  where I passed on a long forgotten day!
Winding a road less travelled to the sea

Road Trip

Racing down the holiday expressway
Overexcited bouncing youngsters on the edge of bursting
“Are we there yet” the battle cry of back seat drivers
Did we miss that turn on the road less travelled (now lost)

Taking on snacks and numerous pit stops

friendship lost
When times are good friendship blossoms
It fragrances all about
The sweet perfume of love
Let’s all about know
That no ill-will can see the light of day

Like a fast blowing wind
The sand castle of friendship can scatter
Far and...Read More

Sometimes, Somehow
Sometimes, there is not time
Somewhere, there is not where
Somewhat as unlikely to find
Somehow, there isn’t a way to fair

Too much of this, too little of that
Simply a few or one too many?
Perhaps one too happy, few too sad
If I remember......Read More

Sixth Sense

I am not talking about the movie but a psychological phenomenon.

Where past experiences and mistakes record as clear visions,

Seeking the answers to history and lore

Did Atlantis merchants use...Read More
