Premium Member This Nest of Mine
It is now winter in my Canadian world,
the ground and trees draped in pure white;
and the wind is frigid cold-  howling a song,
yet, I bundle myself up for an ice-kissed walk.

Into the forest crisp and crackling I stroll,
to meander...Read More

He’s got his black hat on. the one that lights the path.
hes got his lunchbox. the one that arms him well. 
he's got on his straps and is wearing his wrath. 
his hands are broken, his body torn.

Blank pallet before me I see in purest light, unmolested without flaw or limit,  open to endless possibility. Mindful indecision reigns as ruin of such perfection looms when intertwined with careless intent- therefore  weighted responsibility goes not lightly...Read More

Premium Member A King And His Money
If the King is in debt again,
We must open the privy purse,
A profligate king is a curse,
It has been thus throughout his reign.

It puts us all under a strain,
And God knows, it is getting worse,
Why must the man be so...Read More

Ain't it funny how we go day to day

Premium Member Waiting
There is nothing I can do
but wait upon the Lord
While I do, I faithfully
put on my shield and sword

These things will help protect me
from all the devil's schemes
He's always ready to attack
and ruin me it seems

Waiting can be difficult

Adoption Stranger Abuse
I'm doubled over in a crunch
Like my stomach felt a punch
When I heard something so sad
I felt hurt and really bad
When a stranger looked my way
About to ruin my great day
Spouting out racist remarks
Putting me in such a shock
Knowing nothing...Read More

To Be A Man
Dressed in a black suit
In fancy black loafers
In snazzy black dress pants
With a little handkerchief in my coat pocket
With my hair slicked back nice and neat
With my mouth in a wide fake smile
You'll find one thing not pretty and shiny
And...Read More

Tu n'es pas un garcon, tu es un loup - You're not a boy, you're a wolf
The boy looks at me with fear in his eyes.
Hesitation in the face of temptation.
I am his ruin, a pit trap, a fall from grace.
I am that which he strengthens his faith by denying.
I am frightening, something he has not...Read More

Filch sweet treasure
Filch my cache

If we wish :: Tanka Sequence

Ancient Chinese text,
Tao Te Ching, teaches the world
is sacred vessel
and hence human beings should
refrain from polluting it.

But, we forget our
planet does not have so much
space and soon, a time
will come when the trash will stay
in sight and pervade our lives.

Wrack and Ruin

The storm whipped legs to huddles;
It spoke with the discarded clothes 
of mad clowns.

I watched small birds explode, deer swim 
toward the night, raccoons sail
a godforsaken sky.

A mottled land shook its muddy ribs.
Ducks sunk amid churning reeds.
A whittling wind hurt...Read More

Theft Of Ghost's Girlfriends
I was roaming on the road
Like black dense cloud in the sky
Neither rain nor gain only fly(v).
Suddenly my eyes caught a charm 
Two beautiful girls were dancing, 
Singing along the road .

Me was only spectator 
Clapping, enjoying and laughing

Be still
Be still, my foolish heart
Don't ruin this for me
Stay calm
Let it flow
Let it happen
Let it go
It will happen
If it's meant to be
Trying to reach for
Anything at all
For a tiny sliver of hope
Because don't we all
Just want to be loved?
Here, I...Read More

A bunch of Wild flowers
Far away she began to drift 
to the distant land of hers
When reality seemed to ruin everything
she went to that place
The last safe place she calls
"Where everything is not justified by what you see and smell"

Do bears torture animals? No.
Do wolves tear you apart before they kill you? No.
It is man who tears the wings off butterflies.
It is child who shoots cats with a Beretta? 

Do alligators eat you alive? Maybe.

Premium Member Number Four: Wars And Battles

The outskirts of ruin, children of war,
Pass by upheavals, turmoils, turbulence,
Impacted scenes that tore, they must endure,
Safe from acts of war that was merciless,
Behind smiles and charms, home, away from war,
Now comes the battles, that adds to their scar.
