Premium Member Sunday is the Day of Rest
So much work to be completed
Sunday laze
I am unhurried
Calm, unconcerned
I have completed one task.

Today is my day of rest.
I will honor it as such.
Honoring my Lord’s edict.
Through prayer, meditation and delightfulness.
I repose on my porch, unhurried.

Premium Member Bird Song Lull
Bird songs are lulling me into a happy state.
Sun on my neck uplifts my confused mood 
Sunday serenade, I relax with a heart quake
Kindness in the air nature doth exude.

Corona rum is on the run
It is causing the men to have fun
Corona rum is strong, it makes the men behave bad

Nighttime never ends, 
the cold rain enforcing the quarantine choking our city. Sleep comes in bursts, the day-bed perched
in the side room upstairs from the nightclub my ship, rolling in dreams, the only sounds, giggling, and the mechanical dishwasher... the...Read More

the corner coffee shop
I remember you through
fthe freshly bread 'scent 
from the baker's sour rising yeast.

your eyes
like mundi’s orb
crystal Orion belted
mysterious black opals

Blue globed

opallios light veined,
a Star calls us


some are blind, disinterested;
other windows once jaded
are jewels, like emeralds and 
sapphire skies, topaz earthed


portals to worlds of others,
wide and open minded

what they see

I need my childhood
Where life was good
Small but huge heart
Running to Sunday school
To be filled with gospel
And memorize verses
I love my past

Unfortunately it is my future
Life harsh and rude
Huge but small heart
Running to movie shops
To be filled with latest
And build...Read More

Stay at home and be safe
If you can work, or go to school.
You will be allowed to.  If not

Promising to solve all of your
financial problems.  "You can
earn $10,00 working from home."
I hung up my...Read More

COVID-19 Blues
It makes me so sad
To see people afraid
But the governor called a lockdown
And it must be obeyed

I've got the COVID-19, the pandemic Coronavirus blues
And I'm getting more depressed whenever I turn on the news.

The stores ran out of sanitizer
And I...Read More

crescent and full; let memories carve yellow suns on the

A spell in the country would do you good,
Said Doctor Rogers MB sternly,
Wagging a finger to emphasise the point.
Get away from the diesel fumes
And millions spreading germs.

Packed a bag and...Read More

I think my brain is going down the drain.
My short-term memory is all at sea.

And I recall it all...Read More

Getting Into Heaven

To see if they understood heaven
And to get in - what was the price
If I sold my house and my car
And gave all I had to the poor

It’s that time again,
