Premium Member Forrest In The Woods
Now, you probably won't believe it
So I'm not going to say that it's true
I once met, the famous Forrest Gump
We were just running, both of us two

Beside me on a path in the woods
He said, "I am Forrest, Forrest Gump"
I...Read More

With a gaze straight ahead, no sign of a blink, 
Not even a flicker of care,
He sees through your doubt, your deep hidden dread, 
With his blind black ominous stare,

And he’s prepared to attack, prepared for the fight, 
Prepared to...Read More

Two roses
The flow of the river has been trapped in a bottle
Put the ecological city to your eyelashes
Beautiful hummingbird
Going down to the beads
Road with a purpose
And bite at the paradise of the apple in the park bench
From midnight to midday
Reversed the...Read More

Oh dear what can the matter be?

You lost your clothes and can't

Sure you've heard the term, “touch and go”
The phrase “touch and run”, is safer you know
If you value your skin
Better run like the wind
An uninvited feely is frowned on, dear soul

A Body Strong
I was born to run like the wind!
Alas, age took away my legs!

I can no longer keep a steady pace,
as I try to walk away,
my pain will not subside!

All I feel is my morning cries
as I rise it brings bleeding...Read More

My friend is known for a horsey type grin
Along with his whinny, he can run like the wind
Through fields of clover
Don't mind his odour
Just hold onto your schnoz and try not to wince

run like the wind
let me slip away into sleep now
let me open my dreamers eyes in restless slumber
slip away to a dream of summer long ago
to walk the paths that only boyhood knew
to be once more the manchild beholding

The Judas Scroll
The Judas Scroll

Sometimes the night is laden with
guilt. The nails curse me. The
mob applauds like children
scrambling for the safety of

their lies. Your eyes curse me,
follow me to hell, hold you to
a lie that never lets go. You,
out of the night,...Read More

I once knew a boy who could imagine 
great things. He could run up a mountain, 
swim the depths of the sea. He could fly 
a jet fighter then come home for tea. 

As life became real his dreams got...Read More

Run Like The Wind
Run like the wind.
On a windy Sunday.
Run like the wind.
As fast as you can.
Don't run for the silver.
It's not your favorite.
Run for the gold.
'Cause you're here to stay..

You've got the power, 
and you've got the glory.

It’s getting ahead of me.

I'm sure you're aware of the term, “touch and go”
The phrase “touch and run”, is more dangerous you know
If you value your skin
Better run like the wind

Premium Member Wings of time
Peering through portals of time
On gossamer wings
Just past 89
Cherished  moments
Crystal bottles
Blue Haze
Memories never fade
Seems like only yesterday
Small tyke I was
Could run like the wind
Running so fast so free
Barely touching the ground 
I was on
Feeling  sure so secure
Wished it...Read More

The winds of life
Life's a struggle a battle
within, everything around
you seems rather dim.
 
A light shines upon you,
energised like superman by
the sun. You run like the wind,
Seemingly racing and chasing
to win.

Slow down it's already done!
Your family and friend
support you and Jenna's the
one. You've...Read More

Small Towns Revisited


by Edmund Siejka


We Long Islanders
Live near a large City
Of
Tall buildings 
High end stores
Apartments with gated windows
A place where people live like strangers.

Here, where we live 
The land slopes downward
Towards Merrick Road
Inviting us for a walk
Along the way
It’s just...Read More

Twenty-six letters in the alphabet:
Vowels and consonants be soldiers to defend my message

I'm like a twenty-five cent coin rolling on a parking lot;
destined for the machine or the storm drain?

Twenty-fours in a day, but all I need is a minute

Sadness is as Beautiful as an Angel
How many friendly faces do I see in my chambers of recollection as I call up retrospect,
Cherished scenes rush to mind as its pinions bear me to the times which won't ever return,
Scenes now changed and altered like visions in...Read More

Dreaming
A young indian boy of ten summers old sat upon a knoll.
 Watching a horse heard below,the great white stallion with his head held high.
 He was the chiefs joy and pride, he had often heard the worriors say.

Premium Member Quiet Walk Through Town
Where I live 
The land slopes downward
Towards Merrick Road
Inviting me for a walk.

Stopping at a corner
I hear my name
Turning around 
I say hello
To a neighbor
We exchange pleasantries
No need to say anymore
And I continue on my way.
