Premium Member Painting at Kynance Cove
One of those days we rarely appreciate until later
I took my paints and walked to Kynance Cove
I had seen it from afar of course, but never up close
It was inspiring to the point of making me cry with hope

Written: by Miracle Man

I awoke before dawn to the sound of cold rain,
Which means most living here will be house bound.
I’m sure that on travelers this may cause strain,
But much to be thankful for can still be found.

The Single Rose
Is she my rose? I'l never know..
From sunup to sundown
Leaves whistle, sway and blow
Falling like my doubts,
Fading out of summers hold

Does she even really care?
Or am I just there in the same but different boat?
Life will always carry pain..this I...Read More

Premium Member SUNSET--

Deep into that darkness sun setting
the termination brought such sorrow
Sky - sky - sky! Lo lowers in the skies
my mind always strays to space darken now the sunset
It was out of place, boldface, sly! yon moon

Schlerotic schlemiel schleps
Schlerotic schlemiel schleps...

Into lonely senescence -
three plus decades already elapsed
trepidation, hesitation unbearably
tugging, shouldering,
remonstrating accumulation
of "baggage" thumb

of right hand thrust out
silently raving, quaking
cursing ultimatum parents
(soffit to fascia in)
saw fit to fashion
and hammer home

red hot poker rage
their singular male offspring
middle child of...Read More

A rooster of discrete tongues
Cultur, tradition
Zillion specters resonate
Quantum croak.
Cock crow,
Erupts whirl, barge at Alaba
Descry of sea of soul cases
Kibbling in, out as Emmet over nectar,
As husky ell of murk drench dawning,
Eviscerate NEPA's  spasmodic spitfire
To stupor, obloquy.

Link, Think But Don't Sink
Think, slink, clink, dink
At sunup, at sunshine and sunset
Wink, link, but don’t drink, stink or sink
If happiness escapes your purview. Don’t get upset

When your world spins crazy
Out of control as your life’s patrol
Rides in a maze pride to get hazy...Read More

Let Misinterpretation Remain Sparse
Human race, don’t boast on the casualty coast
Frisking, seeking, pricking and nicking the truth
On a continental coast as to your truth you toast
Sending to Coventry the uncouth

Pummeling the truth, belittling the youth
Whose views you deride
As your rollercoaster swings South
In the...Read More

A Can of Worms Bereft of Any Worth
Fact and fiction, abundance and paucity
Vie for space in a world driven insane
Conflating rural life and life in the city
Where dealing, hustling and stealing grow inane

In minds and lives
Caught up in a conundrum
Stabbed and clubbed by knives
To the beat and...Read More

New Millennium Helen of Troy
A thousand ships your face launches
Pitting my ship against a fleet of others
Snatching my heart, in a morass of mud drugging my haunches
Pouring torrents of my tears and fears in front of my brothers   

Rendering me disconsolate
Wondering why...Read More

Not My Right To Avenge or Derange
I decline to despair
Although life sometimes gets unfair
It can’t beat the power of devout prayer

On which I forever rely
When temptation makes me cry
But I try never to ask why

The school of hard knocks
Chiming on time like clocks
Which can’t give me...Read More

The Whirlwind Called Life
Living in a whirlwind
That’s how I would describe my life.
Go, Go, Go
From sunup to way past sundown.
Never-ending days
Constantly prioritizing the workload.
No time to breath
Before having to drop everything
To handle something more important.
Time truly has no meaning.
Seemingly runs from one into...Read More

I wait

In a session of shower
I send two lines in whatsapp
And wait for some flowers
To bring me a bird seated on a second
If not on hours 

Why no bee yet
Is the other window now
Tired of alphabet
Or after another bait?

I feel uneasy

I Miss My Maternal Grands
I Miss My Maternal Grands
That big red cock with long beard
And sturdy limbs 
Crowed every minute, haha!
In loud voice like the growling lion claiming his kingdom .
Danced around and romanced  and ...!
Those dozens of hens dust-bathed

I get up each day when the sun comes up.
 I drink some coffee from my cup.
 I think to myself what is there to do.
So I write down some things that need to be done.

My Little Sis
When I played sheriff in a desert town,
I would ride out at sunup on the chase.
My little sis would watch me with a frown -
She always saw the worry in my face
For she knew that death had entered the race....Read More

M-ist and haze Friday
A-re both nowhere in sight; 
Y-our birthday has come, after the Thursday night.

Vigilante Justice
Gather 'round the campfire, young'uns
Let old Billy here, tell ya how the West was won
Once a time ago,

Grace From The Almighty
M-erry mood opens the day
A-fter the night in the nook; 
R-ise of the morning sun
I-nspires your heart, 
A-ura, and look.

S-eventh shine in January; 
P-ure delight delivers the goods, 
E-nding the midnight misery.
R-esults wanted to be produced

God's most beautiful guardian angels come down,
they descend from the heavens, each one in white gown;
with their spirit, they guide heart, soul, and mind.

I can see them but often are blurs...Read More

I heard the things you have been saying
I felt it when the city woke up,
as cars have started practice; fouling
the still of morning air and bringing
a death to night, now found at sunup
my heart will seek a hidden meaning
