A Sonnet To My Mother: The Grateful Son

When I often think of my existence,
My subconscious can only imagine the unbearable pain endured by thee.
The Creator must have gone into tearful silence,
As you endeavored to give life to me.

O what unshakable firmness you summoned to have my embrace,
And...Read More

Excitement awaiting a thunderstorm
Early morning April 8th, 2020 
meteorologic destiny manifested...
rumbling atmospheric thuds,
promised natural exultant
sound and light show
subsequently within minutes
dully rightly appraised as dud,

yours truly forced himself awake
way before dawn's early light
all for naught, yet...
thus hours later summoned,
perhaps lame poetic material

The Other Day
Although I know failure is success postponed.
That her refusal; my failure 
Implies that this is another way NOT to do this.
But I can't take this any more.

The other day I saw her doing her pedicure.
A light-skinned girl
Her face magnificent to...Read More

His Taunted Tour
ink dark darked
sumptuous syllables' spell
dripping dainty deal
nocturnal nature seeped
in fostered felon
wanky wind summoned

hoisted feelings flamed
eerie ember traced
vying lead laced

porous pen bled
gaunt gores' crest
sassy society's defect

pulpy poetry bore
his taunted tour.

The ghost of Illiam Dhone
My life, reduced to a theory,
written by those I once served.
Furnished with tales of honour 
and shame, they summoned me, 
tried me unfairly,
and shot me at Hango Hill.
For hours, I bore in agony and anguish,
until the burning pain turned
to death’s...Read More

Read - emption
Sumptuous suggestions straddle stagnancy
Summoned by engaging pages
Susceptible skulls imbibe vibrancy
Surmounting latitude notion ravages

Authors serve smorgasbord swathes of research 
Reading's pizza fuses flavours opposing
Issues investigated, valid views aptly asserted
Essays stretch perception, anomaly concepts provoking

Unfurling knowledge tunes recognition's accord

Experts summoned
  War whoops drum on

  In the end heavy losses fall

Back Home
Smoke blew from the chimneys
in the place where I was born
streets were laid with cobbles
workers summoned by a horn.

Shops sold all and sundry
and the keepers name was Ted
I often bought my sweets there
with pennies gleaned from lead.

Our neighbor wore an...Read More

Premium Member No Longer Longing
ethereal coupling 
waiting finally over
coming together as one soul
surrounded by ancestral bliss
unsurmountable moon magic

summoned by the gods
of love and lust 
acute wanting finally satisfied
no longer longing for moments like this
this memory lasting forever 
in both of their souls

We Don’t Always Get Up

Born my son

My pride 
shadowed you, 

Our long talks

Your wisdom

To the sky, 
Your letters,

 in uniform you came,
healthy and strong.

It's party time, you drank beer then wine

Place parsed pennies, purposely upon pretty porcelain palms.

Each of us witnessed her fall,

Gaunt gods Grasped
spooky sleep staggering
with wills wielding
hoisted hands hankering
lurching, fiddling lids
sumptuous state stuttering
eerie end enveloping

Zeus zipping zeals
pricking pulsing peels
moaning mists munching

summoned sundry saps
gaunt gods grasped
pruning punctured pats 

"Leave for Earth,
damp desirous death."
