Premium Member The River

Inside the water 
where they float or sway in their rusting roots
are horse tackle,
unhinged parts of eighteen wheelers,
a girl on a tricycle, her bones still cycling in the drifting meld
circle squirrel and possum pelts,
The sludge of a dredging flow
tows...Read More

Premium Member The Bird Lady of Ecclesall Woods
Her whisper gentle like the summer breeze
Calls a passing sparrow lonely and shy,
One that had escaped the northerly bise
Intoxicated from flying too high.
A welcoming hand held out a surprise
While a tranquil voice hints of sweet meadows,
Orchestration of each golden sunrise
Her...Read More

Premium Member HAUNTED

It haunts the minions of my mind
subservient in acquiescence
to a horror's endless daily grind
deny the truth, buttress the flank
conceal the secret – rancid – rank
within a lie's servile defense.

It sups on pain, its sustenance
cold fear its stain will slow seep...Read More

Long Spoon
Long spoon is truly needed 
In defending your faith; 
Dangerous lovers of sin 
Simply show anger and hate. 

If you have some interactions 
With waiting harmful people; 
You must be always on guard, 
That they don't damage your soul.

The Cricklebob
In a forest far away
Where pine trees reach the sky
The Cricklebob comes out to play
Though nobody knows why

It skips amonst the bluebells
And picks the celandines
Dancing through the harebells
Whilst drinking daisy wine

It sups the nectar with its tongue
From every flower it...Read More

Another Christmas day is finally here
The very thought fills me with such fear
I have to try and control my old Aunty Mable
Once she hits the gin she gets very unstable

Uncle Arthur rushes in and opens the sherry
then sups half the...Read More

My beer-swilling auntie called Mabel
Could drink most blokes under the table
She sups pint after pint
Almost every night
No wonder her legs are unstable!

At The Tartan Bonnet
At the Tartan Bonnet
next to the Smithy’s stall,
a picture labelled monster
is hanging on the wall.

The photograph is fuzzy,
looks like a bunch of tyres,
held to a piece of deadwood
by nails and string, or wires.

The locals say that tourists
are gullible, rich fools,

Premium Member My Birthstone Gem

Of all the fine gems that I know, my favorite is Peridot.
My August birthstone pleases me, since color green and I agree.
Now, Peridot is lesser-known among most gemstones that are shown.
It once was called 'Gem Of The Sun', and Cleopatra's...Read More

The wolves do lope high and free
in mountainous trails and her masonry
the hallowed wood and rocky clefts
hold the dens of their hidden nests
Golden eyes pierce thickened dark
hunting prey within their park
hot breath raises mist in their flight
with urges to run...Read More

Of Mad Dogs
The walker prevails without his brimmed hat, 
skirting whirling dervish of hungry gnats 
which seek to explore each orifice bare - 
to sample the blood from here and from there, 
as discerning vintner sups from each vat.

Premium Member John's Loopy Day in Nursery Land
Are you sleeping, brother John?
The cock doth crow, to let you know,
if you be wise, tis time to rise.
If you see a barber, shaving a pig, 
ask how many hairs to make a wig.

This is the man, all tattered and...Read More

Premium Member Always A Widow
Here squats a Black Widow spider,
who sups a swig of sweet cider.
     He spies her there,
     scoots close to share
and sips the hot brew beside 'er.

She darts with aim to devour,
her size...Read More

As the panting deer sups
from the stream of water,
filled up refreshed and

I hope that I to
can find that refreshment
in this life. 

I find plenty fresh 
water every day, though it 
escapes me. I'm still dry
inside, what is this thirst?

Premium Member Along came a Spider contest
A tree spider sat waiting
in the hollow of a trunk
in ambush for her prey
by stealth she would eat

no web just camouflage
patiently she waits
along came a lizard
she pounces on it

Darting with her sting
which starts dissolving
the flesh of her prey
she happily sups

Sound The Gong For The River
Sound the gong
O ye poetic comrades! 
Heralding the seventieth year of the River 
Play the flute
O ye poetic comrades!
A symphony of moving waters.

As the river flows, not withstanding
Its stage of life into craving streams
So does of the poetic life of...Read More

Love Trashed In A Country Village
Pelted forth, hanging strings of moorland curtains,
  Endless rains, tart and stinging nettles,
Drive the icy pitons, needles of frozen spite,
  Through the scalp into the mind where it unsettles.

God, I hate this land, this patch of grub and...Read More
