Premium Member Fish Tale



Scales hardened over her skin
a condition called ichthyosis vulgaris

ik-thee-O-sis vul-Ga-ris

fish disease

(the ‘vulgar’ means ordinary
but at its worst
it is far from common).

She bled where the plaques chipped and cracked,
she leaked oils, but could not sweat enough.

She existed on her own sunbaked...Read More

May I Tango Mr May O
She was smoked salmon so spread
Like his creme of the crop
Smoking hot circles 0-0 0_No-No
The points… Dots and shoe size petite–
The whole website To love and honor
Whats in her moves the private Dancer

May I never be dropped to be overly...Read More

The Braile of Cobblestone
The Braille of Cobblestone

 
Keeper of darkness,
of auras reaped from high seas,
vast is your harvest
of earth rumblings beset by molten tears
to charred obsidian made hard glass.

Such reflects primate-memory
once clamored upon by man and beast running,
dodging blade and spear
as wash water...Read More

Duel At Cripple Creek
It happened on one autumn morn
The bright sun raked the sky
The two men stood and faced each other
One of which must die

The wind blew down the dusty lane
This bright an sunny morn
Along a quiet winding creek
A gunfighter would be born

The...Read More

Premium Member Depleted by Tomorrows
Sunbaked to crisp this rag your hand enriched,
Hangs on a wire exposing tattered thread,
Rung-out depleted by tomorrows switched,
Lifeless without you, left, now lonesome bled.
Days wiped as months turned years following fast,
All while my focus rusts once where we were,
A rite...Read More

faded roses on the wallpaper
leaves bent back in an imagined wind
fingerprints of a thunderstorm cling to the wet image
she says it was a lovely thought that gave birth to such beautiful drawings
that any child could see many adventures to be

Ocotillo
A sunbaked pile of dead sticks in the ground
I’m a divine oversight, it would seem
Hundreds of long spines poke out all around
Yet inside resides a colorful dream

I’m a divine oversight, it would seem
Look past my thorns, though they do seem...Read More

SUNBAKED SIDEWALK
It was there 
        within a crack
of a sunbaked  sidewalk
--a beaten trampled upon path
that i placed my brittle soul
within a gritty soiled ground.

Passerby, your foot so close
to the fractured light --
i see...Read More

Miasma Ripening
Miasma  Ripening
                by Odin Roark

The chaff of greed
Feeds the consumer-compost,
While urban disquietude
Marches in lockstep.

Decomposition rages…

Choked roads of sunbaked gridlock,
Spider web into house upon house,
Creating...Read More

African Autumn
Finally its October
The harmattan is coming
I can perceive it
Now the African autumn has arrived
The harvest is drawn nigh

The next morn
You see the trees adorned
With blending hues of orange and brown,
A carpet of brown leaves you see
Lying on the dry, sunbaked...Read More

Wind of the Prairie
Warm air dances in the prairie
In a hot sunny day 
Arid smell comes across the barbed wire
To harm my mind
Relaxing under the evergreen
Viewing the heat of the summer scene.
 
A rice farmer with sunbaked skin,
His old sandals secure the feet

Memoirs of a washroom
Sunbaked entrance steps and climbers amidst,
lay the washroom secluded.
Door opened to reveal its acrid smell.
Provoking minds to give thoughts a space.

Anxiety,apprehensiveness,shrills and thrills,
laughter to sarcasm its aroma consisted.
The room as if sealed everything
reverbrating inside,assuring confidentiality.

Dragging psyche back to the reflections

WATERFALLS, RIVERS AND DROUGHT

The frenzied forces of cold, icy streams
detonate explosively on the rocks below.
Their rapid currents wreak havoc 
on logjams caught in crevasses beneath
the mist and rainbowed spray.

We blink in awe to see this
spectacular remonstration 
of pretentious power abruptly
become...Read More

MELLOW NOON
days of benign stealth
lawns, gardens, orchards drink to my health
the road's been unkind
well it's gone, it's flowed on behind

let me recline in this boon
mellow noon
the bell might ring
spiteful and soon

days of serene sloth
cirri bind the sky in strips of clean...Read More

Premium Member Me and my Bike
Beneath a perpetual sky
Longing to perceive nature’s sigh,
In lanes of sparkling morning dew
Before ‘Draughton village’ we view.

Thunder lightning hoarfrost and hail
Sunbaked days when coasting the dale,
‘Bolton Abbey’ stone throw from home
Muscles taut, like a garden gnome.

West wind howling hard to...Read More

SENSITIVITY

They’re all ignored by us, but they have feelings too :
A black  gravestone  in  New York, down in the world, 
Recalling its halcyon days as a part of 
The impressive strata  at Palisades Park.
The statue in...Read More

THE BEACH ENTERTAINER
Miles of broken, sunbaked seashells,
resembling pieces of porcelain of lesser value,
lying across a populous beach subdued by misty blue,
as hungry sea-gulls pounce the fiddler's crabs..


The beach entertainer draws huge crowds;
singing funny songs and making comic skits
by spicing up his unique...Read More
