Premium Member Atmospheric inferno
Boisterous clouds are churning, roiling air-mass in warm updraft
Declaring on callous inhabitants of earth, a dark ferocious war 
Manifesting malevolent force, imposing anger on spatial norms,
Conspiring with anguished winds to invigorate violent storms.

Colossal is their expanse that threatens the rise...Read More

Seen wearing his wife’s silken gown
O’Keef’s soon the talk of the town
In her basque and pink bra
He looked like a p orn star
His missus gave him a dressing down

He says darlin’ I’m into cross dressing
See, this is my way...Read More

My internal experience of depression
today shames
external ecology of elation,
all I might know as warm extended family
of profoundly peaceful impressions
still bare surviving
at end of this slow-fading thread.

Ocean's Saving Peace
I look out, 
Sand in my toes. 
Mottled shoreline, 
Transfixed in my mind. 
Free my thoughts,
My worries. 
My mind clears. 
The song of the sea. 
Suppressing life's turmoil
Restoring one's soul.

Premium Member Shadows Of Conformity

Evil thrives within the hush of silence,
it has a keen ear for the slightest sound. 
And it will react with violence and threats,
to quiet any voice of protest down.

Truth fuels a cacophony of noise,
where whispers oft morph into crescendos.
But fears...Read More

In the stillness of the night I saw myself-
captured in quietude and sinister peace.
Suppressing all that hovers,
truth saved by ivory silk covers-
I long to feel the calm life used to give. 

So, I tarry and stroll along shores of woe,

Can't Take My Pride
Days until ‘Pride’ fast approaching,
On the phone with mom, she said;
Not to make myself a target by going,
That she doesn’t wish her daughter dead.

Better yet, stay home, she insists,
Everyone that goes is at risk.

Who gives thoughts?
Who gives emotions?
Who detects stimulus?
Are they result of very own perceptions and interpretations?
Do they come from incomplete information stored in memory creations?

Its nature is to have internal...Read More

I’ve come to find
The truth is tart
Creative mind
Demanding heart

Busy brain
Starting fires
Fail to tame
Hotter, higher 

Quick to grow
Quick to spread

Look up ahead

Efforts, hopeless
Back to wishing

A lovely curse
Ugly blessing
Pleasure hurts
