My object of affection is fashionably late
When she appears she will be mine
For a wedding is planned to celebrate....

A walk on a warm winter's day
   Birds chirping and children at play
Folks smiling 'neath squinting sunshine
   Earth's river flows peaceful today...

Open the box; take the money out now
Leave it alone, and swear a solemn vow
Not to touch it until you've grown old

One mouth you were given, but two ears
So you would talk half as much as you hear
Remember this biological fact
  ~ and affection you will gain from your peers...

Pastrami on rye, piled up so high
  Sauerkraut oozing out from the side
Served steaming hot, with mustard on top
  My last sandwich be this ~ gladly I'll die...

A Lonely Fight
I'm afraid that I might be die alone.
Out in the world, love is like a war zone.
All they want is payoff, but not amour.
Yet the love-light, for me, that never shown....

He always did the things he liked to do
Ignored by mom and dad, who'd not say boo
Yes, he became the man who went to jail
His view of right and wrong long gone askew...

Premium Member To let go of one's soul
To sleep, to let go of one's soul
  To be refreshed, restored, returned whole
To be cradled and cooed to throughout the night
  Trusting in a process sublime, age-old...

Music have a simple beginning,

Unfinished can be a symphony,

There are no rhyme or reason for music,

An ear to hear and a mouth to sing.

My hands, smelly, brown, it's truly heinous...
I love those dogs, I do! But it's dubious
I'll ride my wheels again through grass!
Clean after them please? I'm simply FURIOUS......

I set out to write by brightest daylight
   Looked up when I'd finished -- 'twas night 

Had thought to revel in sunny, blue skies
   ~ Gladly basked in soft glow of moonlight...

Premium Member From High on Life's Cliff
Leap from the bed, need to stay ahead
  of the upstart pack, baying for bloodshed

Visions of the abyss, from high on life's cliff
  spur me to fight the daily battle for bread

Premium Member Love: a Rubai
Love is more than happiness or pleasure
Flowing from a person, thought, or treasure
   Rather, that its object’s worth is boundless,
Valued for itself, beyond all measure.

Herd immunity, herd immunity,
corona viruses hence have absurd impunity,
multiply free and spread in spree over triumphant glee, 
along effortless thoroughfare to every defenseless community.

Crime Of Passion

I’ll ransack the caging golden towers,
Slip your hands from the twines of forlorn hours;   
Spirit you to fields ‘neath conspiring stars,     
Coif your hair with a headdress of flowers.

Premium Member Reflection: a Rubai
Should there be something you wish to defy,
Think for a moment of what you decry:
    Whatever it is you think to oppose,
Start first by asking both whether, and why.

Zest, jest and fest verse voice collage,
Wit, pun and way hurl charm right here;
Journey and quest words bless and touch,
Watch and see play bridge sacred cheer.
