Premium Member Snake

It surges away accelerating within its length,
a self-winding mind
pumped through muscular hoops.

A sharpshooting tongue flicks, drilling space,
muscular chains shrug along propelling flanks.

Snake slips through its own ribs;
watching that swift cage 
roll over the tractor-prints of its flesh
my pulse also pushes...Read More

The gentle patter of morning rain 
against the window, soft like a cat’s 
padded paw tapping to come in.

The spell of sleep is too seductive

Where did you go
All you do is what you want to do...

Never cares how far you have pushed one to harm...

Never wants to what...Read More

Premium Member Night on the Beach

A mottled crab scuppers its sea legs
in fluorescent foam.
Blue pods rattle on green tides.
Bladder wrack, Mermaid’s Hair
washing tangled ankles.
There are voices in my open mouth,
they roll over a briny tongue,
intone words from the breath
of spray and brume.
Where the sky hangs,...Read More

Premium Member one stone is a fortress

A stone is sitting in solitude underwater while others play
Solitude is gainful,   a finding of one’s inner qualities
Those qualities surface that may have been unclaimed
It is then that the integral source of contentment will exceed
beyond defeat or discouragement...Read More

The morning is quiet. 
I have not yet gone outside. 
I yawn inaudibly. 

What will the day be like?
Will things be okay?
What should I do about?
What will happen if?

It all floods back at me. 
A never ending onslaught of…

The sound of the birds chirping;

A slow yawn at the alarm,

A nice text message from you;

It’s sunshine in the morning....Read More

To Wake Me Up
To wake me up
Is easier said than done.
It begins with a sweet song
Played on the small speaker
Of my iPhone.

I shut it off and roll over.
Still asleep.

Ten minutes later,
My digital alarm clock
Begins to beep a most
Aggravating sound.

I smash the button down.
Still...Read More

Premium Member Catholic

Stern but saintly Father Meissen 
scolded the parents for not having 
their baby boy baptized sooner. 
It was April, 1952,
inside the stained-glassed catholic church,
ensconced on sun-split Newlin street, 
avenue of pink oleanders and cracking sidewalks.
According to the chagrined mother,

Big On The Little Things
Her 5 carats have quit shining
And that big house so inviting
Don't mean a thing
It's built on broken promises 
And rests in, a field of broken dreams

She looks to find the answers
And she's waited, so very patiently
But he failed to get...Read More
