Premium Member Wind Waves

I was not born to the moors
my roots are by the sea
but on this lofty heath
a grassy and heather tide is heaped
into wind-sculptured waves.

Wind swept days are a good time
to be a thin branch
in a treeless landscape.

New News Old Death
Death has reinvented himself:
He rides a cream coloured scooter,
Surfs the net, runs wild on Twitter,
And claws with fleshless hands the breath
From souls sharing a hope of life.

Death has reinvented himself:
He stacks up bone beads in columns,
New and clean and clearly...Read More

Avian Art

The day breaks on the edge of azure sea,
squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine.
Flapping feathered wings in cadence of glee,
venture out for prey far from the shoreline.

Squalling seagulls sip the morning sunshine,
gliding through the satin sheen of brine air,
venture out...Read More

The sky of strong blue as it dims at dusk,
that I shall in no way look at the same. 
A new start in rich, pure, salt scent may claim 
the heart of the sea, both wild and calm musk.

Golden sets of
surfs surface, 
delves surreal
golden sky, 

Sands surrender
shoeless sole
soles traipsed a
hazy trail,

Gold rays graced and
heralds-in,
as an ochre
shore comply,

Gild shines serene
flocks of doves,
day sprung free a
summer's veil.

Premium Member SURFS UP


Traipsing a pool of surging seawater,
Heralds of a large wave caused their squatter,
Illuminating the summer season,
Strands of dread-locks fly, windswept the reason,

As, sets sweep in, so does the huge masses,
Lifts field glasses exchanged for sunglasses,
Locks propped lookout towers shades as,...Read More

Tips of tongues...lingers paradise aim,
A place of sand and sun,
Days of surfs, nights of fun,

Premium Member sand goddess
Supine she lies upon the sand

beads of perspiration finely dot

curvaceous golden brown form

carefree tresses spring, fly away hair

coconut oil lathers coquettish peaks

bared free, flesh innocent

she turns, languish sun kissed rays

fingers brush sand that lingers

covetously to her thighs

her eyes span the...Read More

Waves crest briefly, espies the seas expanse,
So far from shore, patience, creeps e'er so close,
Braves surfs the crest, on boards they take a stance,
Radar in their psyche of what all knows,
Saves for another day challenge a chance,
A star peers horizon's...Read More

Black 
sandy
full-of-life
magnificent
beaches with laid back coconut palm trees

Welcoming both surfs and surfers back in
for a relaxed
breathtaking
sunset

walks
neath a
lunar rise
as a starred sky
pauses for fallen stars on a black beach.

Golden sets of surfs surfaces, delves a surreal saffron sky,

Sands surrender shoeless soles, that traipsed an eclipsing trail,

Amber rays supremely heralds, as an ochered beach comply,

Gild glitters halcyon flocked doves, sprung free a summer's veil.

Patina Of Passion

A strange thing happened
when in a sudden spurt of morning sun
I looked fervently at
the slender blade of a wafting grass
sprouting on wayside spring pasture,
it instantly became a surge of beauty
that blew me away

For a trail of years uncounted, prophets

The Mermaid Drowned

A fuddled mind surfs through tides.
Harboured, she sits by the sea doing nothing.
Her toes make electric touch with the  water
Restless currents ... spark the sand.

She could see the ocean break into two parts.
Did the Ocean have a heart?
She had...Read More

BEHIND NATURE'S SMILES
Come and see around the world
How nature is embellished with unity

Their true aberration furled

Look at the sky: clouds flock against the blustering wind
With mountains, they kiss with...Read More

Seagulls Shriek Louder To Warn God
As men pledge allegiance to their demons,
seagulls shriek louder to warn God;
these creatures only have feathers
for clothes and don't feel a bit of cold! 

How sullen the skies would be
without the presence of seagulls:
no shrieks, no flapping of wings...

WOMAN WHAT I LOVE
women what I love
the waves and curves
and soft linen to disguise what lies beneath

and their eyes
better than heels, jewels and disguises
