Darkness falls in the habitat
an secret acre overgrown
lush from furious rain the darkness
and sparks fly up from the underbrush
to the treetops...

Premium Member Lennie and Half Acre
Lennie was a Hen-pecked pastry baker
Who told His wife He might forsake Her.
She nagged and was grossly obese.
He wanted it to quickly cease.
Whereupon He frosted Her Half-acre.

Sad life 19
We are selected by a family
we will finally have a home
we tour the place, and it's amazing
tree house, dollhouse, multi acre yard
We'll give you a call said the "parents"
but they never did...

Soft hills kneeling 
to worship the mountains 
Bells tolling the hour
Log cabins hidden,
layered with asphalt tile,
Cows on every acre
A church on every corner.
Ancient farms hold secrets:
history buried in earth.

Just a few years left till I meet my maker Hope my reputation hasn't preceded me as a heartbreaker I'm truly a decent soul Quite stunning as a whole But at times I lose it, run wild over hell's half acre

Premium Member Alone
As time rolls on by
a dream, the same dream
of our life together,
alas always about the memory
as light as a feather
in Technicolour
at one’s tether,
that makes life tough
like a flower of love
alone in an acre of corn.

Black Acres
black acres sorround me flat as ice, and there you are the only light, in all this flat 
blackness the only thing that seems to shine, how I wish I could  feel your warmth, 
warming my life, my body, like you always have, as long as you dont become a black 
acre my love for you will continue....

Premium Member God's acre
Darkness envelops like giant wings
Heart thumping eyes unfocused,
Hearing nothing silent as a graveyard,
Under a misty moon a dark shape looms,
Grey, solid, shiny marble it's a cold tomb,
Paying respects with a nod then walk on by,
Respect to all those that are long gone,
All is clear the gate clangs shut, 
The key turns in the lock,
Darkness envelops the graveyard once more...

Premium Member ONCE upon a TIME at easter
along the walk
   to six acre wood
sat in the sunshine
still needing a hood

observing the swallows
    & pass
the new growing grass
earth dry&hard
   scented gorse
       in yellow garb

hares in proverbial
  careered without any nous
popping up 
   alongside us

across the vale
 worship floated
enthused& elated
my soul
    being mended

Christopher Robin
Christopher Robin a friend from long ago,
His author A.A. . Milne.

His friends Winnie-the-Pooh, and Tiger
Delightful and kind.

He was seen with his friends,
Champion of storybooks.

Real folklore  hero,
Beloved storybook friend,,

Colorful character ,
Visiting his companions from the acre wood.

Beloved and read by society,
What miracle this time passage.

A layman poem Piece by piece

learn to cut life piece by piece 
don't swallow it  ,
it chokes
a tailor told me
in piece by piece
she made it a beautiful dress
the mason said
from piece by piece
he built the edifice
the panel beater chopped!
from piece by piece
he shackled it
so the farmer said
from seed by piece
he harvested it
though from 
an acre.. 
life is such a bunch
peel it in style

Premium Member Glory Days Remembered
Two horses share the acre of pasture--
A proud Arabian, now a gelding,
Who sired seven stately champions, stands
Elegantly while I snap his picture.
The other one, a thirty-two-year-old
With a sagging back, stands waiting to die--
A three times national champion stud
With honors--ribbons and trophies galore
Moving slowly toward the feeding trough
No longer poses for photographers.

Mother Earth, forgive our naïve race of men on your precious Earth, 
for we have poisoned your oceans with chemicals. Turn a blind eye 
to the loss of your forests, acre by acre for our greed.
Let us get away with the destruction of your ozone layer, 
don’t let us get skin cancer by our own negligence.
What more have we done to your glittering world, our world? 
Our selfishness knows no bounds – guide us to a sensible path.

Premium Member On Our Little Acre
On our little acre,
beyond our tall honeysuckle fence
that frames our summertide yard,
the lines are drawn, the people rage,
we had to take inside Old Glory,
Lord, we pray You're coming soon,
can we live and await You here,
in earthly peace while holding
our family and friends near,
on our little acre.

I pray that civility and tolerance, 
especially for the sake of our
children and young adults,
will bless the U.S. nation.

Beautiful and Terrible
This haunted man - a prisoner,
his bitter mix beneath the tongue,
tastes the outer, tastes the inner,

and gasps for breath with broken lung.
The ilk of those who should be free,
who limit more than most among

the ball and chain, the tyranny.
In all he sees, a parable
to loose the soul, to disagree.

His acre lots, though arable,
such fertile grounds yet long the plow,
both beautiful, and terrible,

was tortured then, is tortured now....

Gray Ghost Queen is seen streaking 'cross
The back acre. She opens the doors. Sits in
Front seat honking for her master to come.
She accompanies him, a constant companion.

First she sees me off, on the bus to school.
One tragic morning, she's on the inside track.
I felt a thump, got off the bus. Lay on carpet.
As I cried, her master descended the stairs.
He was quietly reasurring - let me stay home.
Roy buried her in the backyard, by the stream....
