       Irene, dear cat

       Now eyes my goldfish

Premium Member Alas Poor Summer, We Knew It Well

They maneuver more slowly now
a hum of wings and shuffling feet
trailing the mist of fading warmth
staying closer to home and hive
supping on summer’s last morsels
collecting the nectar of dreams
to nurture the promise of hope

Bonfire Night
The croft was the centre of our universe,
About it all day we kids would converse.
We talked of raiding a few streets away, 
We would steal their wood without delay.
Then on the night, we stood, eyes bright,
As the grown ups, the...Read More

Viv had planned to be out supping real ale
But his wife had a different idea
Furniture assembly - Viv's face turn pale
but he gritted his teeth, and said ‘yes dear’

Alas, to poor Viv's utter dismay

Premium Member Easter Season
Each Wednesday evening, we eat soup and bread.
A simple meal like one our Savior ate,
Supping with dear and closest, trusted friends,
Taking the food to meet his coming fate.
Every one is regretfully afraid,
Realizing that our precious Savior dies.

Revolted that our black...Read More

Did you see me as you looked into her eyes
Did you even see the tears I'd cry
How could you allow another love into your strong arms
Holding her against your chest, like superman taking her to outerspace
That used to be my...Read More

Reached that Certain Age
In July last, that certain barrier I passed,
I reached the age of seventy at last.
Now then, as far as I am concerned,
Certain things I can do that I have earned.
Retired from work don't need the excuses,
I can put working hours...Read More

Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding
Pub in Yorkshire with stout and ale aplenty. 
Red faces sweating with alcohol's influence. 
Singing fine songs in reverie and ecstasy. 
Salivating at arrival of that succulent essence. 

Tender juicy slices of beef covered with gravy. 
A splendour when touched...Read More

Bilocating bison on a leopard printed dash to save the whale. When money is organic and organs play. Sunbathing on a nightshift is never that clever in a see through nightgown. Plus the sheer fact that oversized condoms in snake...Read More

EMBRACED based on Portrait no 3 The Blue Cat by Pamela Colman Smith 1907
EMBRACED - Embraced 

Her eyes and lips captivating, 
her large nostrils and paws supping at the wind. 
Trying to flee, her lustful charisma embraced  me. 

Her darkness twirls around in my head, 
entering at my own free will. 
Afraid,...Read More

Premium Member I, Claudia
(A Spoon River Poem)

You loved me well, you loved me long,
even with joy fading from my eyes,
my beauty your heart's silent song,
and sorrow hidden in burnished skies.

Six strapping sons feathered our nest,
pride your meat, and hope your drive
for peace to...Read More

New Quay harbour
I sit upon the harbour wall
And feel the warm sun on my face.
I turn my gaze far out to sea
And watch the happy dolphins play.
Bright sunbeams slanting through the clouds
Are searchlights toying with the waves.

I lean against the cold hard...Read More

Down the bottom of the garden

pretty houses made of cobwebs

They sparkle and glitter in the sun
see our fairy ring where we dance
the largest mushroom is a palace

Me and The Zimmer Man - continuing on
Things were not advancing much

though we hurtled across the tar;

conversation was grinding to a halt

 & that was something

 I  needed desperately  to avert.

“Ah! Yes,” he interposed quite eerily,

Having clearly read my thoughts, yet again:
