Premium Member wry amidst the darkness
spry within the shadows you come
wry amidst the darkness you haunt
i care not what it is you want
why is it my soul you still taunt?

do not taint my mind with your past
you have no power over me

Premium Member Out of the Woods
Wheels of life dangle from delicate branches

Sway in the wind and embrace in quiet caress

	I used to be an acorn

		Now I am a tree

Seasons coloured in outside their softened contours 

Green yellow orange and red waiting for indigo crowns

	Roots' undergrowth...Read More

Premium Member March Stew

Mornings are littered
with gnawed husks,
charred mouse-tails. 

March is burning its strew.
The limbless
braid a thawing earth
into knotty threads.

On wet lines flannel shirts 
poach in a warming smaze. 
while gust-hogs 
still attack the hedgerows.

In coddled kitchens
muggy boiled cabbages
a pottage of sky.

Stubby...Read More

Emotional  Demons

These entities are never seen, nor speak a word
Though they communicate in a way, never heard
They prey upon feelings of fear, anger and pain
They find you, when you are weak to fight again

These demons seek nothing more than...Read More

Dreaming of sugar spun so high
I could barely touch the sky when
a bird came and sat on my shoulder
she said she was messenger of the
gods of this realm and we (the humans)
of course had forgotten to sow our
souls with seeds...Read More

Buried in an avalanche you

Streaks on the Zen landscape of endless treeless came
From Sun's shadow dancing in the sky
Like a child's "hide and seek" game
In layered wind-swept grass so high

The burst of light to strew
The misty clouds of blue and gray
Lingering rain drops made...Read More

In April time a sea of blue,
A fragrant carpet 'tween the trees
Transforms the ancient woodland view

The silver birch and oak and yew
Have bright green growth as Spring decrees,
In April time a sea of blue

Saplings sailing on a sea of blue,
Their...Read More

For how long must the world sufferer fallacious arguments,
that war wins the right to rule, scarlet, the stains of blood,
as leaders eviscerate their people, internal organs strew escarpments,
curious vultures bide their time, waiting till the dying die,
to bewilder, plunge innocents...Read More

There is always monsoon, after the scorching summer heat
Wet eyes dripping drops,
Reddened in the heat of grief;
'O' baby, my baby,
Why were you born,
In this poor man's house?
Nothing is in order,
No stable job in hand; 
The work I know is out dated,
In this modern world;
In my past, 
People lived...Read More

Destitute roses
For you, 
Roses are honoring gesture;
Enjoy commemoration of past;
But don't realize,
You secede me from my family twig;
The pain I endure when you pluck;
We are pair of roses,
Weep watching own death,
Waning beauty,
Disappearing odour;
We are affeluant, 
Strew odour and beauty,
Make ambiance pleasant,
When...Read More

Step into the Garden
Potash and compost, tomatoes and rose,
Back in your greenhouse where everything grows.
The gurgle of water, filling the can,
To water my memories of holding your hand.

Prize-winning carnations, striped candy floss pink,
Clove scented blooms, you give me a wink.
I step into the...Read More

Gusset of rose
Gusset of rose I am,
Tender the body of mine;
Petals yet to rise,
'Touch me not'; 
I am yet to bloom; 
Odor of juvenility,
Yet to snoop out of me;
Smell of mine, 
Yet to strew in ambiance, 
For you to love;

I open book, 
And am in world of dreams;
Eye lid shuts,
And am in journey to illusion world;
I fly, I swim and I strew, 
In depth of sleep;
The book as lullaby, 
Makes me go in deep dream;

If I had fallen in your divine love
If I had fallen in your divine love

Peace dove
Dove flew high in sky,
Olive Branch in her beak;
Thought would strew,
Peace in the world,
But far away,
A hawk On the tree, was,
Calculating distance and timing,
To catch it's pray;
Dove watched from height,
Said "Hey you don't kill me,
I am on mission to spread,...Read More

When we met, I had a feeling
I would know you long and well
Your white magic set me reeling,
my dark logic caught your spell

Water falls on dirty dealing,
bursts a bubbles fragile shell
Sun shines in a pool revealing
secrets we will never tell

Once upon a time
My lady called 
I stood mesmerized 
At ocean’s cusp

Glinting, glimmering, gleaming
Thousands of sparklers 
Dot her sequined dress 
Look at me!
Look at me!

Breathless ripples strew pebbles at shores edge
Cormorants perch on hips of slate
Eyes of diamond reflect starry nets
Starfish mouth warm honeycombs...Read More
