Premium Member Christmas in July
Does it make sense to have Christmas in July?
In my peripheral vision is my tree
Please do not bother to ask me why
Because Jesus’s birth is a comfort to me

Ruptured mirror
The bad omen
Fragmented me
Into bits and pieces...

When i merged it back
I realized 
I messed the whole point

Dimensions of the peripheral .

Premium Member Background
Behind the center stage,
beyond vision's focus,
blurry, peripheral
beauty goes unnoticed,
blue as comfort's skyline
before the color blind...
(brokenhearted daughter)

A plieades...

Puffballs ring the forest evergreens; In the peripheral they dance; Flickering energy lights Bobbing magic specters Woodland fairies work Their magic with Delightful Mystic Ease.

As her shadow catches peripheral
a head that could not resist the turn
as eyelash lifts to reveal its joy
and from that squinted smirk of broken lip gloss
Time twisting one leg behind the other
ushers to continue
the promise only she
could keep...

Premium Member Gist
Listen to poem:
Lurking in the murky mist
a glimmer lies peripheral.
Invisible to the blaze 
of stare-eyed gaze, 
uncertainty is determinant.

The gist is missed
until you look away, 
disengage, and let
the quagmire ooze 
belch its quintessence....

I saw an accident, it occurred in my peripheral
The sight of such an incident was really rather visceral
A car veered off the road, it rolled and then it went and hit a wall
There were five men inside and it unfortunately killed them all...

the Lone Whisperer

in peripheral solitude, without glory 
nor fame to flaunt---Ernest the whisperer, serenading
the sweetness of the gentle wind.

The scent of a naked lady
engulfed him, with a pinkish smile
and he wishes…
for your ultimate return.

Premium Member I Sense Them Before I See Them
Faeries flutter and stutter
My ears perk up
I sense them more than I see them

They slowly come into view
My peripheral vision gets the first glimpses
Dainty and determined 

One notices I see them.
Poof. They are gone.
Shy as a daisy chain.

Premium Member Sweet Summer
Spring slowly turned to summer
colors began to show across the plain
a month ago drab brown 
coated  the northern landscape
now with warmer weather
a explosion of color
creates visual beauty
in our peripheral view
uplifting the spirit
as summer draws nigh

Premium Member is Loch Nis
Such beauty, on her peripheral. Adorned with heathers and brackens bloomed. Amidst, there lies a wonder, radiant, sulky. Erosional twists, flow translucent carpet lay. Deep she is, with a lurking cryptid, Within her sightings, she, is Loch Nis

Depression Glass
An “outed” spot –
Pale blue
And broken
And loaded
Inches from breathing
A partial
And permanent
On the paper
The absence of presence
And presence of absence
a secret
To the glass...

Life's Peripheral
On the peripheral of my life,
Drowning in the reality that surrounds me.
Gazing longingly at the lives others seem to find so easily,
Coveting their love, attention, anger, anything.
Anything to make me feel part of this cold world that I reluctantly seem to exist in.

        Young she ...
         young he ... teenagers ...
         little mouths of peripheral blood,
         pink cheeks .... sweet perfume ...
         Sweet youth .. enchanted songbirds ...
          beautiful specimens in love ....
          As the God disposes ...!...

I feel like E,T,

   i feel like E.T. 
   the light is too bright
   i feel like Bruce Banner
   my rage has such might
   my spidey senses tingle
   constant fight or flight
   jumping to the jiggle
   of my peripheral sight
   i walk like E.T.
   around kryptonite

The sphere of influence influenced me spherically
With no core
Left brained hemisphere confused
Like right handed athlete
Co-ordination on my medulla-oblongata 
Peripheral nervous system shuttered down
As cranial nerves refused to send impulses 
Failure to interpretation on my cerebrum
Lead to my confusion.

Progressive penetrative phenomenon 
Pertaining to particular peculiar powers of perception 
Psychological prosaic persuasive predictions
Probing probable peripheral presentiment
