Premium Member How Is It Goal In
Liverpool showed very early they have a goal 
How very cold? 
But the Londoners got off the couch 
And stood tall without a slouch 
They scored one really quick 
Giving the clock not much time to tick 
As the first...Read More

Premium Member Grandmothers at a Wedding

The bride was sweet, the groom was an unknown entity.
Not old enough to be married, she was barely twenty.

I protested all the way to the church, my cries unheard.
My husband told me to settle down, not be a nerd.

But she’s...Read More

I was in a funk,
In a state of debunk
In a state of despair
Depressed and hollowed out
All I could do is just shout

And this is what God said

A four wheel drive good for snow,
For my golf kit,...Read More

There Is Freedom Within And Freedom Without
Though you may be poor,
There is no freedom without cash,
Worked hard for the dollar,
Until I hit the floor,
The poor has gift of time.
The rich in cash has no woe of money,
where there is no lack.
Not where the green dog can...Read More

My kind of heaven
Opps! must be dead,

Rough guy levitates towards me,

I’m Lemmy from Motorhead,

The lighthouse shivered in relentless gales on its rocky foundation

Stood the test of time but now it seemed that the clock had gone back

The keeper was sidelined to retire in the Sea Mission’s Nursing Abode

Had paid his fare and was...Read More

Expanding in that secret space,

So many resolutions now given voice,

Opening doors to conversations between visions,

Like phantom tales of great quests,

Tuning into melodies unwritten,

Inviting creativity settle in -a permanent guest,  

Overcoming pebbles stuck in...Read More

To Love A Child

Today the stars fell from the sky
To settle on the ground.
The stars were damp now where they lie:
With each, a tear was found.

But what could cause the stars on high
To feel such fearful pain?
And why did every...Read More

Muddy waves, foam and the storm
All settled in my teapot
As nature stirring outside
My own spoon rustling inside
Will all settle in due time?

amidst the midnight dark,
comes the sleeping dog, that snores/barks;
a mixed up nightmare, no other mammal shares...

written with wax crayon, within neon sprays
of florescent glazes poster board pages...

a chance for chalk;
a walk in the park

Stars Aligned
As my stars align i quiver,
Searching for the next step as i age and wither,

My destiny i try to figure,
Yearing for something bigger,

I slake my thirst through small achievement,
Tears i burst when the timings convenient,

I search for something more,

Long long ago in a lonely lovely hill
When earth was young, handsome and green
Besides the meadow near the curly winding flow
There stood a tree proudly high and spry.

Swaying and dancing in wheezy pleasy breeze
Never was he still, always in a...Read More

Premium Member - when dusk ascends -
day releases dusk-
streaming stars settle in sonorous susurration;
the grey glazed moon bows his subtle head,
and all the somnolent constellations shine...shine for me

Any gentle knock ..
and I get up so spontaneous.
No tangible grounds for suspicion,
still I would patronise.
And settle down later in despair.

My eyes rest still at portal...

Unshakable to his intrigue,
mind undergoes fixation.
And I sit in...Read More

Premium Member Lover and Fighter

Baffling, the turmoil, this warrior she,
with fiercest desire to safeguard the weak
and innocent, rises to squelch hostile fire,
protecting when able with crafts she’s acquired.

But lover prevails; she won’t raise a fist,
lest push comes to shove, and villain persists.
She elects tactful...Read More

dulcet harmony revealed
all you dreamed of ~

always in unison with the notes

Premium Member Yet I Remain Faithful
Filthy and foul I found you, 
garnished in grime, 
drenched in dust,
polluted in your own putrid blood,
orphaned, alone, helpless.
Pity overtook me to love, 
to cleanse you of your stench, 
to let you live.

As you came of age,
I made a wedding...Read More
