Spider on the ceiling
There's a spider on my ceiling
He's been sitting there all night
From the moment that I spotted him
He gave me quite a fright.

Even at the long off distance 
He appears to be quite big
I've never really liked them
ever since I was...Read More

Premium Member 'Autumn Leaves Falling'
Autumn leaves of purple, orange, bright yellow and gold,
fall as I walk along on a day brisk cold.

In my hand a vermilion red leaf brilliant still although dead,
with love I trace it's delicate spider web thread.

All the trees have...Read More

I Saved A Sparrow
I have had a close eye to eye encounter with a squirrel in my yard.
A neighborly cat gave me a greater respect and appreciation for all cats.

Crows, bats, witches, haunted houses, goblins, ghosts and me
Pumpkin bread, corn pudding, warm caramel apples my way.
Delicate intricate spider webs between my house and garage.
Holding me in a delighted way on an October day.

Stringy gooey gritty globs of pumpkin slosh...Read More

The Water Hole
Round eyed cat studies the merits of the day
Meanders through a labyrinth of thorny grass
Four legged wildebeest never knew what hit it
The water is so cool and refreshing by the by
Heads hang low over the over populated location
An oasis in...Read More

Webs Abandoned
Spider long ago abandoned
Flown away and left his home
Sticky mess entangled caught you 
Struggle in duress for life
You find yourself a victim 
Too invisible formidable 
Forces silk like steel designed
The more you struggle deeper still
No longer for a purpose 
Lingers...Read More

silvered fractals vibrate wildly
eight-legged creature watches
butterfly wings ripping, tearing strands

scanning, strumming, threads too heavy
Arachnoid instantly focused 
spider's supper waits ahead

slow down, too fast, too quick
silently struggling, finally unshackled
soaring, gliding floats free

Three Female Ghosts of Thailand


(A woman’s head with viscera hanging down from her neck.
She paralyzes like ice-cold lightning).

Where will you be tonight when the moon is shut?
Woman hater, where will you be
when the womb of your soul is shut tight?

Krasue will chant these...Read More

Premium Member The I Am Sorry People
I am sorry. It’s just the way I was made.
I’m sorry. It is in my genes.
I’m sorry. It is my pattern.
I’m sorry. But I warned you.

Being with the “I’m sorry people” is a challenge.
They do not want to take responsibility,
And...Read More

'Twas after a frosty night,
I caught a glimpse of sunlight,
Sparkling on a spider web,
Miracle, enough said, 
Patterns so intricate,
Did not brush aside, delicate,
Yes, 'twas after a frosty night,
Spied a web of sheer delight!...Read More

We love to make lists,
To describe, name, number.
How can it have value,
If not on my list.
As logger I stand
Before the green forest,
The numbered trees
Are ones to cut.
The forest cut down
Is only to me
Bigger box to live in,
A shiny new car,
The...Read More

The Boy is  three,  his sister, two

I can’t hear your water
Make it bigger 
The windows are colorful
Rainbow indigo
Like a pillow 
Because it’s colorful 
Why you say that  to me?
Why why why?
I’m gonna go in this cave

Premium Member A House Haunted
It stood there
looking empty and old,
neglected and sad
with windows shuttered,
covered in shadow 
both day and night,
hovered over 
by trees whose branches
disguised the house
and made it seem 
a part of the 
overgrown landscape, 
completely surrounding it,
keeping strangers and unawares
at bay.

It stood...Read More

She stared at the raised clear bubble on her friend’s wrist
Then she ran away screaming.

Twilight composers - Repost


Here on the night before yesterday’s dream,
twilight composers retreat
Laughing at whispers a’ flow on the stream,
happily taking a seat

Practicing meadowlark lyrics to sing,
strumming a toadstool in tune
Awaiting the light that the fireflies bring,
blinking a wink at the moon

Tulips with tambourines...Read More

A Kind of Truth

How terrible and perfect
the shark and the spider.
How forever unknown, 
much more than we 
who try to explain them are.

Weigh the salt, weigh the water,
weigh the dust.  Put it in a bucket
with a hank of hair,
add a soupcon of...Read More

All is Signal

you think I'm simple minded because I'm nice

after assassinating my inner constable
to no on stage ill effect whatsoever

as a ghost in the compulsory banquet gravy

Who can a spider spy?
I, the fly, with my little eye?
Why do flies fly?
And spiders spy?

Getting a Bad Rap
If I weren’t afraid, 
I’d probably like spiders.
Instead of panicking around them 
I could admire their true beauty,
intricate and complicated web designs 
and the fact that they catch and eat their prey 
suspended in air in such a clever way...Read More
