Premium Member Onions in My Dreams
Onions in my meatloaf, in chili, and in sloppy Joe's they make us smile
In scalloped corn, and of course mashed potato gravy once in a while
Onions are chopped, ready to be slopped into everything here
For my husband and I adore...Read More

Premium Member The Year of the Turtle


We carried it home in a salty pail;
the bones of a monster.
Freddy said it was an alien;
his dad had seen their ships
shining like sixpences
in the sky.
When we tipped the bucket,
seawater and bones slopped.
For a moment
the loosely strung carcass swam.
I wondered...Read More

Have A House Warming
Sailing On A Sleek Sloop

We went sailing on a sleek sloop
Then had to stop for bowl of soup
When hungry both started to be
Boat slopped and got all over me
Sank according to latest scope.

What recently I had realized 
Is that...Read More

Landslide
Landslide
Avalanche; executing terrible
approached unexpectedly and
Made everything despair;
Torn out, worn out
Making cry and mourn
Landslide came;
Vulnerability inclined;
Along with the despair
Lost out torn out
Hubbub came, cry came;
Landslide welcomed grief
Happiness lost, grieved out
“Mom, Mom….” Son yells
Heard from the distance
Within a minute;
Got soundless
Unbearable the scene
Pathetic...Read More

She sat on the bench eating a pear
My eyes were drawn to her in an eye-popping stare
She was shorter than me so I was in love 
I have to have this woman, an angel from above

She worked in a restaurant...Read More

Premium Member IT!
IT

See how things droop
It’s cloudy    REALLY socked-in
With just a few drops
Humidity?    
High!
Been that way all day

It always starts from the shoulders down
Parts of me feel?   ummm    slimy 
I’ve poured...Read More

Premium Member Music To My Ears
This morning I stumbled out of bed and stood at rigid attention!
(I thought I'd had a nightmare and had lost my military pension!)
A familiar strain wafted across the valley and swirled about my ears.
'Twas the "Reveille" bugle call, a sound...Read More

Premium Member Private Roscoe D. Schlink Arrives At Fort Fumble
Dear Folks: Here I am at beautiful Fort Fumble, Louisiana.
I sure wish I was back on the farm in Bean Blossom, Indiana.
Already I've learned the army pastime of "hurry up and wait!"
And that sergeants ain't very nice - they just...Read More

Premium Member Dining In An Army Mess
I became familiar with intriguing chow in the army mess,
Tho' I savored their chipped beef and gravy I must confess!
But some of their culinary efforts left in my mind some doubt,
That my wily recruiter didn't know what he was talking...Read More

Three Course Date
I dined with a girl,
guess I should say
we both were free.

Her name was miss Ethel,
made me feel special,
t'was love I could see.

(Chorus)
She was my whole world 'til that romantic repast,
I didn't know how long my stomach would last...

She cooked on...Read More

Premium Member Clean Your Plate
From the very moment my Mom taught me how to use a spoon,
From her mouth was uttered that old familiar tune:
"The kids in Asia are starving, now Bobby, clean your plate!"
Her admonition was final and left no tolerance for debate!

Don't Go Near The River
Don’t go near the river a tree has fallen down
The flow is blocked and it caused a dam if you fall in you could drown
But to us children this an invitation was
A big happening in our lives we had to...Read More

Exhibition in Memory
Abstracts hang:
sterling silver frames,
matted in motif,
celebrating Artist.
An exhibit, ten years old,
collects dust, forcing recollection.
The mortuary – Boyhood Curiosity.
Mother: Naked. Stretched. Stiff. Grey.

Tin baking dishes engulfed the counters.
Great aunts and second cousins crowded our sofas.
Somber chatter and pats on the head...Read More
