Premium Member Enchantment

In a room that once commanded great respect,
stage lights began to hiss with heated anticipation.
There were sounds of alcohol infused rumblings
and laughter rolling through the rows of seats
from the tongues of young fancies whose foibles
await the reverence paid to tales...Read More

The night began like any other, 
I grabbed my gear, laced up my boots,
And threw spit shine on the leather.
Rifle slung and bag in hand with the usual friendly banter
I had yet to reach my ride

The Birds Would Return, Someday

At the fringe of dark clouds of despair
Beguiling dreams gleamed like the silver lining
Created fluttering wings of birds of desire
Driven by the squally winds through the rainbow arc
Entered the realm of sunburst new horizon.
Flock of these birds flew in en...Read More

Premium Member Musical Note
A harpist sent a note
That felt rather sharp.
It left me feeling flat
As a worn-out tune.

Out of rhythm and sync;
Too lento to make the play,
I lacked the harmony
To counterpoint her melody.

Cadenza like, my heart once surged;
Now it drums out a dirge.

Premium Member A Whiff of Breeze
Seated on a whiff of breeze
Hanging in the air
I gazed at the moon
Huddled in the arms of the sky.
The moon waved at me
With winking eyes
Inviting me to partake
In the festivities of colored hues
Blossoming slowly to the songs
Of birds returning...Read More

Configuring The Heart

On the splendorous crown of my heart
shimmering in the cerulean night
you gleamed with the sequins of moon.
I tried to feel your sapphire touch,
but you glided away out of my sight,
across my sky I had carved for you.

In the verdant vale...Read More

By Julia Shaw

At seventy-two my life has been so very fine,
That I'd like to push a button and just rewind.
I'd go back to my wedding day so exciting
And marry again the man I found so inviting.
He's been all things to...Read More

"Christmas Wolves"

Winged ones 
feathers of pure light
fold their warmth around you 

as you walk 
in solitary silence
throughout the cold
Christmas Dark Night

Warriors alone 
wanting to take flight
always stay by your side
reciting good cheer

They will never leave you alone,
they are found here

I lay in love
As would be a shoreline
Enjoying the ebb of your tides upon me
I lay in love
Rejoicing the lusty touch of your waves on me
Content, fully aware that you remain here
As each sunset promised the sunrise!

But your hatred surged...Read More

Premium Member Auto de Fe' at Plaza Mayor

Sixteen-Eighty was brutal on saints and their hissing cats.
A turgid June, thickened as it was by an immature sanguinary wine
failed to quench the civil mob.

Above the birthday cake façade,the pink and cerise porticos,
the heavenly-frocked casements, the stucco -
a tiered sibilance...Read More

Amid The Jagged Shadows

" Amid the jagged shadows of mossy leafless boughs"
  - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Gold tinged paints dripped from the air,
under the clear opalescent autumn sky,
jade foliage turned to full-bloom flower,
I flew my heart like a bird over the canopy.

In my soul
there You,
The Flame,

better part of my

playing your 
naked mind

Its hands went frozen a warm summer June,
Bought it new when cool though it waned since then,
Days were young and fresh loved e'er so oft loom,
Vivid hues displayed stills toured page again.

A swept updraft breaths...Read More

Melting Shadows


See their shadows melt away
See their shadows melt away

All these wooden figures 
How do they turn shadows?
All these wooden figures
Why are they all hollow?

searching the way she has lost forlorn

The seam was torn and its gap ignored,

In the seamless sky of my fervent freedom

You came,
Tears of outraged vanity blurred my vision,
I couldn’t stand your violent and mendacious tongue,
The accelerated beat of my thoughts intensified

Offering me an artificial and delusive smile of languor.
Today, the babble of brooks have grown audible,

Regrets now whizzed on with...Read More

melted in many streams of tear to torrentially flow
like the rushing rills of rain drops on face of foliage.
