Sonorous, saporous symphonies: strong; soothingly spirited, sublime sweet songs. Satisfied sigh, sees salubrious springs; sharp, sizzling sunburn scream: saltwater stings. Searing sharp satirists, snarkily snide; subtle smart sophists show soft, specious side. Skimpy, salacious shows sell sexy spice; somber, sad serials scarcely...Read More

Premium Member Night Operetta
Creatures of the night in song... welcome me to sing along; cricket arias froggy croaks plopping waters hooting owls. Skeletal trees spooky limbs shadows weave as moonlight beams; a bulbous moon o’er horizon wolves that bay to its beauty. Twitterers sleep ‘neath dark sky; silent paw pads caressing ground. Trickling waters their rhythms cast, fireflies flickering, 'round a...Read More
