Premium Member Seraphical Stellar Symphonies
A billion blazing Suns that shine for me,
One heart beats within their symphony…
My eyes expand to the morning glimmer,
For sorrows fade a decrescending dimmer…

Splendour is their shine of Eternal Elysium,
Fulgor fusion fires of hydrogen into helium…
Luminosity lusters of a beacon...Read More

16 - Let's just bee friends
Let’s just bee friends

Humble sat with BlondeBee outside in the hive garden.
All the little mites were floating around, 
Collecting all the twigs and leaves which had fallen.
Humble took a sip of his honey, as his honey was sunbathing.
In his head...Read More

Prickles and prackles
Arizona cacti living her truth
Soaking up the sun
Twirling it in her mind
Saturating her body

Prickly not tickly
Mexican flowers enjoying the desert
Sitting in the sun
Taking her time
Sunbathing nude

Children running toward her
With open arms
And tiny soft fingers
The first time
Wanting to touch...Read More

Premium Member Manuel's Beach prose poem

It is hard to walk in the sand especially with boots and a heavy rifle. 
Manuel and I would sit on a rock and watch the moon give birth to 
a distant blue Africa.
Franco's Guardia Civil were not all thugs....Read More

And then the cold had its story to tell again and emerged overnight

The seasons had not changed but as always kept a sudden surprise

Days sunbathing and skinny dipping on the beach felt like a shiver

It's called love
When nothingness of a blank canvas
is smudged by glossy crayons of a child,
a messy picture chuckles in a new carnival.

When thoughts twinkle stargazing the sky
unfurling a drama in splendor of limerance, 
an enchanted soul chimes like a chandelier.

When fingers tingle...Read More

Life springs back
Frozen winter fear
melts in nectar streams. 
torpor days are gone
at last mist dissolves
in sunbathing clouds. 

Painting unveils 
smile of nature.
stirs our senses.

Rose trellised
song lyrics 
dance in love

Bird's nest
springs back

Virginia's Beaches
Lifeguard sound the alarm
The biggest Virginia waves are coming in
Watch out so deadly it will pull you in
Watch out 
Watch out
Watch out
For those killer sharks
If you know what's best for you
Don't you dare swim these beaches all across Virginia
Don't bring...Read More

An Asian Outing At The Beach
Next day after the nightly match they hatched a plan
with the six of them piling into their van
arm wrestling going on in the back seat
the loser not wanting to admit defeat

On the way to their destination the van was swaying

Summer fun has begun at last.
Sun is shining every morning.
Shimmy into our swimsuits fast.
Seaside soon will begin swarming.
Slather up with loads of sunscreen.
Sunglasses protect from sea sheen.
Sunbathing is a real blast.

A half hour garden safari recorded in haiku
a fledgeling starling
came to the pond to quench thirst
a koi carp jumped
no butterflies
a white tailed bumblebee queen
mint moths abundant
hen blackbird
feeding newly hatched chicks
wasps succumbed to rain
flower fly hovers
over greater speedwell
forget-me-not blooms
midges chance their luck
my white lilac turned to seed
bird cherries...Read More

A haiku Anthology - Theme Summertime
wildflower meadow
as tall as a muntjac
cuckoo cuckooing
farmers haymaking
grasshoppers stridulating
don't touch a stinkbug
wood admiral glides
honeysuckle its host plant
humid the hot nights
warm is the river
fish rising leaping for flies
life seeking cool shade
inverted swimmers
water boatmen taking in air
cygnets follow pen
as fall approaches
swifts are...Read More

Mountain Life
   Mountain Life

The sun is beaming on the lazy creek.
The trees swaying with the breeze.
The ladies are sunbathing
and the children are playing,
living life with ease.
The guys throw sticks
and the dogs are quick,
to run and fetch them back.

What inspires me to write poetry?

weightless hawks floating on updrafts
trash strewn city streets

Is God just an illusion
Is religion just an institution?

are looking down on us
I wish it were true
but don't the dead
have better things to do?
Are they still a part of this world? 
haunting and taunting us?
Are they deeply...Read More
