I'M JUST GETTING STARTED
I am just getting started to venture… 

… feasting sumptuously, satiating my cravings midst well-being’s fullness

... feeding the malnourished kids toward physical and mental fruitfulness

… featuring myself along my twelve-month color scheme of saintly fashion

… flying over Mt. Everest, then...Read More

UNAFRAID
If I weren’t afraid, I’d…

… feast sumptuously, satiating my cravings midst well-being’s fullness

… feature myself along my twelve-month color scheme of saintly fashion

… fly over Mt. Everest, then trek at its pinnacle with my gratitude flag

The Seasons of Style
The Seasons of Style

the season of style
like a vernal pool edged round 
raked and baked by the elements
of which it was formed; cracks

a trend seamless and current
flowing from detergent springs
as bubbly as bathwater
flowing down a drain, evaporates

let’s take the thing...Read More

Famine
Written: by Tom Wright

The dove of peace flies clear this land laid waste,
where life is sacrificed daily for a misguided belief.
Those responsible voice mellifluous words in haste,
living sumptuously, while commonalty seeks relief.

For the uncaring, God, esteems with arrant disdain,
as children's...Read More

revelation's optical illusion
Quintessentially phantasmagoric,
  her cobalt skies' chimerical fancy
     whores itself out for poetry, 
sumptuously cached 'tween 
    a revelation's optical illusion
enchanting white knights 
     and seducing dragons alike,
her flimflam...Read More

ALL YOU AN EAT
ALL YOU CAN EAT

JOHN M. ARRIBAS


I never subscribed to an unusual idea
That aliens are among us and thriving here
I now question my stand on that theory
Cause I’ve noticed some bodies quite eerie
I see gigantic beings wherever I go
They start out...Read More

unsatisfied of others
Great girdle! She cried. 
What happenstance have we happened upon?
Have the two nitwits knocked themselves silly with hammers?
What is the sensitivity they seek so?
She heaves humbly a sigh sumptuously,
As if the scene had the heavenly smells of Harvard halls, the...Read More

SOUL FOOD RESTAURANT
SOUL FOOD RESTAURANT
 When you visit your favorite soul food spot,
 Along with your faithful friends,
 What you'll eat any given day,
 On your tastes it all depends.
 The selections are quite varied
 And the menu might read like this:

THE EARTH PLUNGE
It’s hazy… opaque… clamour… and frizzy
My mind froze and clamours
It’s intense, grumpy, and rampant
Yet an image skewed, freckled and afar
 
Ding...Ding...ding…
Musical but torrent my head is screwed
Knocked up and nuts became loose
Thunderous and thumping bolt in my mind

A lament! A...Read More

NO FUNNIER LAUGHTER
No funnier laughter
sounds like this laughter...
when its pitch vibrates as sound;
I may giggle at times, but I'm always kind!


Who will tackle me and make me laugh louder than clowns 
by telling me those jokes you heard somewhere?
Were they told by...Read More

FREE CEE a threshold foretold
    A THRESHOLD FORETOLD

I but strolled over my unadorned threshold
And what, of all things, did mine eyes behold
Begged I let not this be she
The she I was meant to meet yet hoped she not be the she...Read More

POPE BENEDICT XVI CHANTS PATER NOSTER
The Pope Benedict XVI chants, " Pater Noster " with a voice not so grand
while distracting himself by gazing at God's outstretched hand
that Michelangelo painted so well
on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.


This is a Gregorian chant with music sumptuously...Read More

The Spirits Whisper
Heavy purple plums glisten
sumptuously tempting 
the deep shade inviting
yet the viper wavers not...
 
Promise of wisdom her lure
she trails the serpents path
climbing and winding.. winded
His promise her greatest desire
 
figs.. rosy sweetness bursting forth
she ignores.. following mindlessly
jagged rocks and itching...Read More

YULETIDE GATHERING
On the oak and iron studded door
There hung a wreath of yuletide
That was so pleasing to the eye 
It seemed to welcome you inside

The hallway was lit with candles
Of every shape, size and hue
And tasteful Christmas decorations 
Seemed to be...Read More

Love laps at the shore of my heart. 
Kinetically connected to kindness 
my soul basks sumptuously in the 
sunshine of creation. 

All thoughts of bitterness dissolved 
and washed away down the drainpipe 
of despondency, mingling with misery 
and disappearing from...Read More

Visions of the Fourth Man
Agony has vanquished amist the smoldering abyss of the sirens flame.
Peace rages within my soul as my heart clings to the cataclysm of freedoms 
whisper.
The flaws of the fiery furnace were expediently exposed by Elohim's Angel of 
ages.
My apparel omits...Read More
