Renting a room is costly.

In the seventies
Eighteen could rent a full house
For a hundred bucks a month

This could possibly
Today pay for candy bars
In our expensive world

Eighteen lives at home
With his parents and siblings

Premium Member Child is Frightened
Child too informed
What is to become of us?
A worried eight-year-old asks.

Child is frightened.
The family is a train wreck.
Every day worse than the last.

Why do adults share
Horrible possibilities
With their anxious young children?

A Day Dream
rain drops rhythmic sound
cleansing all as it hits ground
mother earth thankfully smiles

birds singing loudly
sun breaks through the grey lined clouds
flowers blooming reach up high

eyes open slowly
snowflakes bitter bite wakes me
soon ..soon it will lose its grasp...Read More

Premium Member reincarnated blue TULIP--
 The blue tulip has died- -
Jaunty jealousy
a blue murder mystery
something has dried up?
It’s not done this way
after the burial done
coming back as a flower?

silvered fractals vibrate wildly
eight-legged creature watches
butterfly wings ripping, tearing strands

scanning, strumming, threads too heavy
Arachnoid instantly focused 
spider's supper waits ahead

slow down, too fast, too quick
silently struggling, finally unshackled
soaring, gliding floats free

Gifts of a long life,
Graces an abandoned beach,
Emptied shells and vanished droves,

Gifts I made myself,
Faces, an album that stretch,
Empty shelves and vessel dreams.

Doting fans were near, waiting
