Poetess in Poetry
Poetry comes and flows beautifully,
beautiful Iike the sun setting 
beautiful like the sun coming up
beautiful like the dawn of dusk
setting with the background pink with purple rays across the horizon streaking across the sky
strong, beautiful and unique
I am like my...Read More

The role of the shadow
The role of the shadow

The dark night sky passes
Behind the rising red sun's back
The shadow cast is
It is the hopeful shadow of everyone who starts the day.

The back of the blue beach
The shadow cast is
The shadow of the laid back

Premium Member End Of Day
Glowing sunsets of molten red and gold,
Heaven's picturesque canvas on display,
Another twenty-four hours have grown old,
Another farewell to another day.
Tomorrow once more sweet voice will sing,
Courtesy of our avian neighbours,
Wake-up calls that inevitably bring
Attention to our domestic labours,
To the beginning...Read More

Premium Member Sacred Discernment
Perhaps a way to turn
from failed
and often violent
retributive justice
to grab healthy hold
of restorative justice

Would ask,
What is this deep difference
between discerning judgment
and moralistic judgment?

To discern,
and not to condemn,
is mutually empowering
and not autonomously powering over another,
against all Others potentially suspicious,
falling short of...Read More

Whispering leaves, summer breeze,
A time to postpone all destinies.
In crimson gown, she's on the town,
'Til the dark eyes go slowly down.

Leaving memories of the golden hours,
Laughing children in leafy bowers;
The sunny noon, with the robin's tune,
And the feverish blossoms aswoon!

The Milled Earth
Sun against white paint;
side of a house- immaculate 
hues. Claws grasp edges,

cimmeran grey tints,
feathers soft as confection;
as grains- malt, sugar, 

sand. Crystal methane.
Tingling Pluto- waves weave 
brazen seas, tincture

of egg-whites cooked.
Mulish solar winds, pushing 
radiated light 

that endosphere Earth.
Orbit spins...Read More

An event that surfers know too well,
for it visits upon them, time and time, again,
and upon its occasion, it is best to parley.

as addresses are traded, and rendezvous are created,

Premium Member Mystery Date or Strange Man
Colored lights mesmerized shadows as we danced.
With his presence, the night was entranced.
Who was he, and why did he make me feel?
But clouds of mystery his persona conceals!

For across the dance floor, his eyes found mine.
The music was heaven, his...Read More

It is weekend you do not have work
a time to sleep more in winter 
Even birds do sleep extra 
Lovely to see sun rise 
So to see sun set
in between both
a deep sleep
one meal

To Conner, With Love
I know you don’t want to hear it
But one day you WILL 
look up and think, 
“Dammit Mom”
And then notice the rose-gold
Of a sunset

Just like I’m
Always taken by surprise 
At how your eyes
Can change from green 
to dusty gold then...Read More

A bird brought back
From the old ashes
Bird of flames brought
Into life once again
Fie is cleansing
So the bird is perfect
Cleanses all it touches
Brings life back from old
Said to be a bird of wonders
Rainbow bird that flies
With the sunrise and...Read More

River Wye Weekend
You came in a beat up old blue Landie

with tales of sleeping giants on your lips.

It was your first night in the cottage

when the Wye was skipping over stones,

dividing the spiked water milfoil

with sacred Pumlumon Fawr sunk into the sunset.

He Made Himself A Barren Island

This unhappy man in the midst of opulence, 
lived like a discolored pale precious stone
in a box of rare jewels, and was always sad,
like a dry wood in the lush verdant forest.

He got up one morning more dejected 
than he...Read More

sunrise - sunset
wedged in between
dank city of bright tents
needles and feces
hate blooming openly
is this the model
we're to curtsy and envy

rosaries tossed to the trash 
down is up -up becomes down
goodness is to often bashed-
darkness is stealing the crown

We are water like the ocean.

Sometimes the water is calm not even a ripple 

Sometimes the ocean destroys and storms.
