thrashing tales
to the feeding frenzy
de rigueur, 
someone’s torn
they can smell the blood
pointing fingers in a mirror
writing with burley
on their star studded
glowing wall 
craggy oysters salty, grey 
and green 
furry mouthed
blunt, stunted minds
lacking wisdom
scattering imperfect pearls
their sharp siren songs piercing

Soothing Dream, Bathe Me In Her Light
Of lonely night and vivid dread
sad supper and large empty bed
denying wind, sets soul to stir
romantic memories of her

only true love I ever knew!

your eyes
like mundi’s orb
crystal Orion belted
mysterious black opals

Blue globed

opallios light veined,
a Star calls us


some are blind, disinterested;
other windows once jaded
are jewels, like emeralds and 
sapphire skies, topaz earthed


portals to worlds of others,
wide and open minded

what they see
is not...Read More

Mission Control, this is Flight Z924693744, do you read?
We're having some technical trouble. How should we proceed?

We have spotted a planet, that appears to be suitable to abort;
But, to return to earth, we will need an alternate transport.

Premium Member My Country Memory
Summer in the country with sunshine on my back
I linger near the outbuildings, pretending to be a super sleuth
Like Nancy Drew, I look for clues, about my grandparents’ country ways

My twin sister is missing the grasshoppers, bullfrogs, and butterflies.
She is...Read More

All things can tempt me from composing words
I long to write praising these carefree birds.
A nice sonnet by noon could be achieved,
But first my bladder needs to be relieved!
Oh wait, there’s gardening that must be done,
Plus meals. Then chores –...Read More

When my grandmother’s soul left it was April
I was twelve; knowing she was no longer here ruined supper.
The phone call came during dessert - butterscotch pie.
I actually stopped eating it, and it was my favorite.

I had never before seen my...Read More

Premium Member TV For Breakfast
TV for breakfast, snack time and lunch.
Taking all my energy, swiftly, easily
Advertising sugary cereals like Cap’n Crunch
TV for supper until we go to bed
When I am lying prone in my recliner
I might as well be dead.

Just Passing Through
Bang! Bang! Bang!

Shattering windows and, smashing glasses 
Sending people pouring out in the street
Gun shots penetrating the clouds 
With a message that is very loud

I was in a funk,
In a state of debunk
In a state of despair
Depressed and hollowed out
All I could do is just shout

Help me

Help me Lord God, Help me out
In my desperation I prayed,
And this is what God said

The Alley Cat Blues
I am tired of not being hugged,
my owner moved and left me behind,
searching for a roof over my head,
dreaming of a soft and comfy bed.

I'm singing the alley cat blues.

A feathered clutch once bewailed –
What can a sparrow do
in a sky full of raptors?
The red-necked puckers’ won’t arrive
until blood smells like copper pennies.

She was only one winter old,
cried a fuss-bucket booby.
Begone crone.
 croaked a plumed strutter.

A Day in the Life of a Frog
froggy went courting
on a sultry summer day
the flowers wilted

froggy dives into pond
makes green soap bubbles for fun,
chases his round dreams

grass is greener on other side
froggy jumps over fence
falls into dry ditch

male crickets chirp at night
a mating call for the girls

A house misses you.
You don’t live there now.
It’s delighted to see you.
It pulls you to it’s curb.

A house misses you.
You happen by.
That dark window,
knows your outside.

That house misses you!
There are the violets.
Once grown in a window.
They are now, long...Read More
