Premium Member The Gardener

He remembers the dead planted in his head,
he counts roots and tendrils,
some go missing,
and he wonders where?

He used to garden when he had a garden,
so he looks for the once planted,
sees his friends and lovers and all the others
as sunflowers...Read More

Death Nature 

Oh, how I love nature’s death;
As the season takes it rest;
Taking of its last thread of breath
Alas, climate changes jest;

It’s in death nature floral greenery fades away;
In death nature grounds struck at heart bay;
Death nature’s fallen silence leafs...Read More

Renewable Radiance

Streams of clearest light,
Born of a star,
Splash across flaxen maize,
Beckoning tall sunflowers to follow
With their skyward gaze
Dashing through newborn dewdrops
Creating playful shadows
In the bouncing, 
Golden glow...Read More

Love Flowers
red roses and violets blue
fragrant scents redolent of you

ashen orchids pallid hues bear
sunbeams ignite goldenrod hair

sunflowers tease touching blue skies
emerald-green jewels dance in faceted eyes

daffodils crown daisies add style
silver waters mirror her luring smile

foxglove hues ornament silken arms
mirror hedges lining...Read More

In younger days, she ruled the stage,
Thrilling hearts of fans of every age.
Every living creature knew her name;
And the trees still whisper of her fame!

Her beauty was like the noonday rose,
Gripping, and then sweet memory as it goes.
Now retired to...Read More

The heart
To the girl who broke my heart
and called it a jigsaw puzzle.

I spent 365 days a year
having conversations with your voicemail
hoping one day you pick up the phone
we’re back in 2018 when happiness didn’t cost £10:54 an hour

Embarrassed from what I said

Your eyes travel the moon lit nights
As your lips kisses the sunset

Your face is bright and beautiful. 
I can not look your way and not smile. 
I can not think of a world without you. 
Every spring to brighten everything.

The celeritous bodies of the hills and plains
Are a true wonder. Green fields stimulating 
A world of living, with just as much depth 
For the dead. Dulcet hills sing sweet songs of melody,
Crescendoing with tunes of enticement.
And although the plains...Read More

I drove down the boulevard as I did a thousand other times
Passing by the aged blue-gray house - the bachelor's pad across the street
Hunkered down like storm clouds in a mist of yesterday's legacy 
And there he stood....the soulful captive,...Read More

A Quiet Place  

A quiet place 
Where I knew not pain 
Where innocence reign  
Lost in a field of flowers 
Chasing butterflies 
Blowing bubbles 
Collecting rocks

Staring through the peep hole 
Hand on the knob

Endless sunflower fields 
Rhythmically swaying in the wind
Like lazy ocean wave stretches 
To the distant line of horizon
Touching the edge of the sky
Melting into hot noon brilliance
Boiling all shades of yellow into
One burning brightness of sun

He is walking fast towards...Read More

Blue and Yellow
Everything seemed
So natural
Nothing irregular
Look how far
We've come
Look how far
We've gone
The sand
Falls quickly
Glitter in
Its wake
The neon lights
Creating rainbows
On the ceiling
Wanted to reach
Still want to reach
The blue fireworks
Not quite there yet
Two years later
Seems like
Distance and time
Took it too far
Still remember
The feeling
Of the...Read More

Sunflowers are Kansas’s answer to happiness in summer.
She has fields of them – smiling giants, sassy and pretty.
Their dark brown centers, peppered with giant seeds 
Showing off shiny giant flowerets in sunshine’s color.
Beautiful in a verdant green background of hope.

How did I land in Kansas?
Who plunked me here?
Smack in the middle of the USA?

A state where my vote will never count.
Thanks to the Electoral College

Now I remember. I was thinking of my grandchildren.

Someone Had to Create It All
It’s our responsibility,
To help the world survive you see,
It’s urgent, because after all,
Someone had to create it all.

Of every leaf on every tree
Reflecting pure symmetricality
Throughout the spring, summer and fall.
Someone had to create it all.

Roses vs Sunflowers
Woke up with roses 
Their company puts me at ease 

The morning sun kisses them 
Adding color to my bleached walls 

Woke up with their soul 
That radiates from the bottom of the vase

fluttering in the breeze
Alas the wind calls your name
As yet you fly on
Citing and kissing the breeze,
The candidate is ideal,
And so are you.

Ghost ones are rare,
The pattern is wavy,
And so is your hair.

and the broken down windows are tainted glass 
and the mirrors are shattered 
broken down, stained and covered in rust and dust
