Under Love's Green Canopy
Under Love's Green Canopy

Love’s golden thread 
binds my heart to yours;
and in beautiful silence,
we lie breathless
in the dark of early morning, 
drifting through fathomless
depths of pure, 
brown-sugared ecstasy,
inhaling the sweet fragrance
of shared delights. 

Nectar-dipped kisses
lingering on the 
nape of my...Read More

Premium Member Kissing Lips

Flavors of Christmas -
eggnog, fudge and pecan pie -
I would all forego
to savor your sugared kiss
underneath the mistletoe

Premium Member Napkin Rings
This is the season of love’s ascendency.
Zealously measured by each carolling eye,
love is wrapped, trussed, and sacrificed to the tree.
My love is napkin rings, time spent, and a sigh. 

In the grim drive for the prescribed contentment,
I creak under wreaths...Read More

Premium Member Loving the Susquahanna - a story of edibles
I am going to sea in a blueberry boat
That danced in the wind by the lee she did float
With vanilla sails and strawberry jib to bend her
Her chocolate chine hull held true on this double-ender

Premium Member Marshmallow Dreams

 they would be bottled in mellowed yellows

Looking Forward
Looking Forward

I'm looking forward 
to wood pigeon call
that waits for spring mornings
and moonshine apple blossom
there long before the light
sugared dawn with coffee
a warm kindness in the glasshouse
the cats irritating company
and doggy indifference
I'll hum as I move 
summer might be all...Read More

Miracle Man
11/23/2018

A fiery tongue delivers
Both sugared and toxic words,
And just like the 
“Big Brown Truck”

It leaves the fulfillment center
With only what the heart has dispatched;
It leaves no return slip,
And S&H is usually remorse.

I am chasing a galloping gingerbread, and the little old man and the
Little old woman and a rake and a fork and a spoon are helping me
When another villager begins yelling at the top of his musical scale,

LOOK AROUND AND SEE
Look around and see
How men hustle to taste the hustle of bee
Jumping from one hive without key
To another is a stress with no fee
Depression replaces momentary glee

Look around and see
To see, remove the blocking seals
After relishing lucrative deals
Bosses bus public...Read More

Premium Member Shoulds and Shoulders
I had a long argument today...
Whilst sitting by the 
surcharging charging airport port,
shouldertoshoulder with this pastor.

Delayed flight and low juice
kept us there, squared off;
shoulder to shoulder.

He with his Righteousness,
me with my Right View.
He with all his carefully tended and
Sunday-stoked Fighteousness,

Saigon Cinnamon
You are something
Beyond classification or description.
Something sensory.
Something
Warm, sweet, 
Rich, dark, 
Smoke and fire, 
Softened spice, 
Sugared rust, 
Dusted copper,
Wood, bark, 
Like you grew from the ground
Or were mined from the red earth.
Just like Saigon Cinnamon.

Premium Member TV on Snipe
in the arena of battle,
t.v. on snipe

drawing his long sword from its sheath,
every inch cacophonously sharpened

sinister with geared teeth

nonsense forms from ancient bowels,
utterance of a lion woken from sleep

roaring out profanity and analytical resound,
playback of every word she speaks

Your sandals make a strange mixing sound,    
As we step together down this shadowy path,
Past the innumerable tufts of sprygen weed,
Where old farmers once hoofed to the music
Of the Elkhorns, and the Spitters.
We will soon eat from...Read More

Let There Be Limericks: Waiter, there's a fly in my soup
The cooks in the Japanese navy
Make a dish of aquatic fly larvae.
Too small to filet them,
They just lightly sauté them
In well-sugared soy sauce as gravy.

That Venezuelans eat spiders may be news to a few,
Though tarantulas rarely end up in a...Read More

WHO NEEDS THANKSGIVING
We three guys did the man thing,
No turkey wing or cranberry ring,
No corn on the cob nor fat ham,
Not a juicy pie or sugared yam,
Decided on a commoner meal,
And short trip behind the wheel;
"Get ready boys, if you please,
We're off...Read More

Perhaps I'll try again another day
Unkempt, bedraggled,
Pushing her life before her
In a tatty shopping trolley,
Covered in a dirty duvet.
She moves around the town,
Slowly, 
Head down,
Hugging the walls and side alleys,
Trying to be inconspicuous.

One day with curious concern, I approach.
"Hello, how are you today?"
She stares at...Read More

The Drunk
Take a sip, the bottle beckons
Draw the drinker in
Snag her wrist with fingers firm
She takes a swig of gin

At times she feels like dancing
And at times she cannot move
The bottle pins her down
Oh, what a twisted kind of love

Sweet-Toothed, Treat Seduced
Most sweets their nectar pollen pollinates,
Preserving life before their sap gets sapped;
Yet amber's sweetest resin resonates,
Ambrosia's essence from death's lap gets lapped.
But you, my sweet, are most untimely soured,
Indulgent hungers feed with greedy gluts
On dulcet fares, you're from your prime...Read More

A Boy's Own Hero
Dad is long gone now - nearly twenty years.
I still see his face with the deep lines etched
at the corners of his mouth from the beers
he’d consumed with smacking lips - beer I’d fetched

The foibles
Are chemical apparatus
where dangerous experiments are done

Are wine-glasses
for leisure bashes in the evenings

Are tea-cups
to relax muscles with hot sugared  water

Are good  ivory beds
to keep calm the amorous overweight body

Are deception bill-boards
where lies are written, formally advertised

Sundown
After the rain, 
the Sun will rise again
we have been in darkness since they arrived
in their caravan of dreams with empty promises of change, 
and constructive untruths, with which they tricked us to abandon our familiar ways
to walk their paths...Read More

Theatrical Attraction
Curtains drawn drawing me in
past trinkets left as mementoes
reaching for stars and moments
filled with honeydew kisses
keepsakes kept inside 

Sugared apple blossom scents 
fill the void nowhere left to hide
scarlet petals wrapped in wonder
float atop the steamy waters
of a long lost...Read More
