So many stand alone in sorrow
beneath bare trees and grey skies
I remember when our hearts sung with joy
and our eyes smiled at all they saw
think to the time when we walked in fields of green
to a time when the world...Read More

Precious Preemie (Alouette)

Precious little lass
Time will come to pass
When your preemie days have gone.
As spring flowers bloom
You'll be blooming soon
As you grow with every dawn.

Mommy loves you so
Daddy too I know
That you'll grow up sweet and strong.

Premium Member Under The Lights
Standing under the lights 
You had them hypnotized; 
From the moment you touched the mic   
stood in front with that guitar, 
every thought echoed, 
every word sung back;  
But with that stage so bright 
the fame faded...Read More

Forty days and forty nights in lock down

	Breathless for inhaling my own air ad infinitum

		Could be worse if I was left out to dry in the desert

Isolation in my own four walls in solitude

	Puffing and panting from the magic scented...Read More

Words Forever Young
As my body stoops with age,
youth lulls upon the page

Where words forever young,
cry willful to be sung

As daylight quickly passes,
I greet night a friend at last

With memories deeply grained
—reborn in verse again

Like one hand clapping, 
or night owls napping.   
A whistle with no pea, 
or a buzz without a bee. 

Like a city with no crowd,
or a snore that isn’t loud.
A wind which cannot sigh, 
or a storm...Read More

My mind was left to think about
"dust scent through cold trampled field 
whilst butterflies hung by their wings to dry"  

- 'Time lost all realism'  

I've surveyed the road from 'time' to 'time' and saw Savoir-Vivre.
I will never be that woman; I've tied goats...Read More

Premium Member The Poem Makers
Some cold forge words to make metal musings,
hammering, stammering then scribblings.
Pounding prose, forming phrases in viscous verse,
many manner of makers, none for the worse.

Some lift language right from the curb,
well-slung slang meant not to disturb.
Writers sling collected cliches on their...Read More

I murmur the lyrics with the house band
In a calming jazz club
There's...Read More

Premium Member False Dawn Day
Away from heart and hand 
With smiles loving embracing

Why dream I of fertile flowered valleys
And chatoyant streams that lie outside soul’s watchful door?

Why not flowering here
With barefoot wading bringing tingling delights?

Perhaps just yearned for foolish feelings, you say 
Sighing within...Read More

I received a letter…a formal one…in the mail…out of the blue
apprising me of a relative’s death…one I never knew.

Since I’m a distant relation…to me his information was released
He never married, had no children or siblings and his parents are deceased.

As I sit my mind, it drifts away
Away and away to another day.

In another world past I cannot say
What day it is, what year at play.

I think I need to work, to do
Something from the past, as if it’s new.
