Premium Member Woman's Glory
Women of all time
have held the balm to sooth the warrior’s wounds,
when returning from battle, war-worn and wary.
The fate of every soldier’s death of body or of psyche,
lies in women’s hands.
We bare for him what he cannot,
easing his mind with...Read More

Premium Member Cycles of life
Times such as these test body soul and mind
So should our thoughts be pain and dark confined
Or loosed to concentrate on brighter things
Like furry puppies, flowers and girls on swings

In this bright morning sun as I roved out
Past village houses...Read More

Come into the garden of my love,
For now it is high Spring there.
My sweet, my darling, my beloved,
Let us indulge in our earthly paradise,
For it's you I love with all my heart,

Premium Member Forever Miss
Sitting under this 
beautiful sunset Eve
An owl floated on a 
gentle breeze
Bidding Farewell 
to sunlit skies
Flowers blossoms 
closed with sighs

Sleep all the squirrels 
tried to fight
Awaiting the sun to 
melt into night
When moon's beams 
silvery glow
Danced with stars 
nightly show

I can  still feel the weight dragging under my feet
And my body pressing down as if it is trying to compete
Something perfound is moving around me and it is
making me feel unhappy.I tried to dig deep to connect

Fine Arts Nature
She is sculpture... 
"green" hills in chasms of sensual carvings 
chiseled on majestic torso of mountains 
and "silence" of stillness flows in  streams. 

She is painting ...
"beautiful" colors in vales of floral polaroids 
blazing frocks of petals in "threads"...Read More

Premium Member Somewhere

Somewhere in these busy woods
a woodpecker tattoos bark,
I heard its pecking
as I drifted into this glade
here in the middle of somewhere.

Somewhere songbirds and squirrels
hustle like hoodlums on their arboreal streets,
but here silence is a rope-less tent
pitched under a million feet...Read More

Whatever Weekend

Being humble common pathways ere,
I ought traveled nearby that lea,
Past the margin of my home there,
Where the daffodils fickle sprightly,

As I shared the natural trail lead,
General impressions befall o'er sunlit,
E'er lighthearted to the bird's melodies,
I travailed the character of...Read More

Premium Member Whose World is This
Two roads divide in a modern wood
One paved for war - the other for peace
But which is the one most taken we ask
The common or the one least understood.

Blue skies beckon at the end of each trail
between tunnels of twisted...Read More

Lies Awake Scheming

Pretense blinks unthinkingly
prominent neon sign
Promoting delicious wishes
heady aspirations primed

Porous ears absorb spiel
Charmed python entrancing rises
Web weaving traitor traps
victim with outlandish surprises

Silkily wrapped casualty cobstrained

Deceipt's imminent death awards
trust's established pristine pure

Compulsive claims manifest

When the sun peaks from the mountains,
It peaks from my windowpane of pain
I can feel the rain as it goes oh so insane
I am crying, crying, crying many fountains
Trying, trying, trying to find where you been

A Wintered Morning
Visit New Mexico,
she says... diamond cut sea
colored skies, a white

bursting. Sparkles. Reach
for these silver crests; gather-
birds soaring. Enspheres.

Orange tincture of
the peels loosening.Cruer
trickling down your

hands shaped like these peeled
spectral trees. Edges. Claws, clenched.
Titian dresses

the denuded bark:
sunlit ornaments. Deserts.
Bloodshot cast wings. Clots.

Shadow Rock
Where the waves break
And sea foam rises
The crisp sound of the ocean
Echoes in the cavernous openings
Of private oceanside caves.
Waters rise and recede
As time passes through.
Sunlit moments slightly shaded
By rock shadows floating by.
Caressed by tropical breezes,
Spritzed in salt waters,
My soul is...Read More

As the snow slightly falls,
And darkness settles in
The day quietly ends
Travels have been taken
Tire tracks left to be seen
Wishes continue to unfold
As I hope your day is smooth
As the ice covered puddles
Reflections frozen in time
From shining sunlit days
Shared through the...Read More

The Flower Within
Hear not the silence in the new fallen snow
embankments high of drifted wonder hide
all that winter buries underneath its surface
and cocoons itself in an invisible whisper
when temperatures rise, sounds of rustling begin
from the depths of a volitional quietus

Inviting is the vibrant smile, glistening visage of spring
Exciting sensuous hearts in nature’s alluring song
Sighting on marigold arc rising blush of magenta
Lighting dawn’s flamboyance awaited all winter long.

Gazing at flowering trees, lilting in tender...Read More

In a world
Of blues and greys
Streaked in swirls
Of sunlit shadows
Hints of gold
Tinge a brisk morning air
The cool stillness ruffled
Of a glassy lake
Not a sound it makes to wake
A sleepy drowsy nature
Gearing up to hibernate
All good things come to an end

A heaven's guardian angel dose plays
The silk golden lyre's beauty and repose.
Thine wet tears flow to sounds of heavens ways.

It echoes pastorale music with praise;
Docile strings tenderly, caressed on rows.
A heaven's guardian angel dose plays.

Sunlit ducks
Flashing downy amid the buttercups
Lily ponds notoriously absent

Swimming with optimism
Following their mama
Hopeful they will all end up
In a dandelion patch

Tulips up ahead
Color of seventy's happy face
Showing you love whether you deserve it or not

But the old was too heavy we need someone with
Arm muscles like Hercules and he was healthy.
