Poet Profound

The cascading stream leaping in swirling ebullience
Through dancing shadows of swaying trees entranced
The spectral dew drops draping the glinting grass tips
Weave lattice of splendor on the meadow bejeweled
The drizzling dust on moonbeam in blue satin night
Adorns the pearl laced waves...Read More

Traces of Errors
Traces of errors - demarcate my past mistakes - I could not erase.
While perfectionists - are gluttons for misery - hints they can't redeem,
like beaches, victims - left barren of memories - surging waves stroked clean.

I welcome the sight -...Read More

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.

Spilt Scenery

Moon bunts as a saffron sun advances o'er a horizon,
Spring's dabbled hues tender hearts a growthful bounty, 
Love sprung amidst the fluttering of its emerald leaves,
High upon mounds beneath an affectionate bluish peak,
Cascading conduit spews of embracing inclined surrender,
Drench...Read More

Premium Member A Rattling Rhyme
Like a virgin to stressed messes surging,
I struggled with bridges on parental ridges
when I wore both Mom and work britches.
Young years adhered pleasure steered twitches
but grown changes sewed pressure stitches.
I changed to a day and night striving
female getter-doner; an energizer...Read More

Tell Covid 19 That Am Black
It’s  voice causes the shiver
its name causes the stagger
tremours boiling
fettle downpouring
Heartbeats panicking
families isolating

Like a turret, it oozes
like a trumpet, it blows
emanating shockwaves
spurring Venom
hissing sparks
scything down humans like grass.

Some say the states gave it light
But Daddy says “Wuhan”, without delight
Basking...Read More

I waited for you
In the depths of the earth
For the season of joy
To bring me into the womb of rebirth

So much time trickled
As blood blotted the ground
War and sorrow reigned
Where mercy had been bound

The thick ooze camped
On the connections of...Read More

To Win By Losing, or The Battle of Guilford Courthouse, Part II
...Through the woodlands the riflemen did steam,
reinforcing General Greene’s second line,
the British pressed on, still on the attack,
but they had quite the devil of a time.

Marching through forest that broke up their ranks,
while Americans poured on musket balls,
the dead and...Read More

Crepuscular cumbersome clouds above,
Curdled and coal black, heavy with cold rain.
Silence reigned below like a brooding dove.
Peace lost seem it would not be found again
To the discomfort of old ones in pain,
With all the chill of winter they complain.

City fraught...Read More

Premium Member What are Golfers not telling us
There’s a part of me that say’s I’m jealous
Another thinks my golfing friends just zealous,
Whilst I crave fresh air and healthy motion
They’re busy slathering on the lotion
Before they mount some little cart
That with intent they simply point to dart

Icarus Rising
Little boy with eyes of

Hands lifted to trace trails
in imagined aether.

Climbing, climbing, climbing,
a boy no longer.

His father, bent over his drafting table,
bringing forth mammoth birds
of titanium and steel.

His dreams haunted by man-made wings, 
bearing him upward, ever upward.

How many galleons per mile
Were spread the grand Armada fleet,
Hoping strong England to defile
After a huge naval defeat?

Surging steady through stormy seas
How many galleons per mile
To drag brave England to its knees
With solemn Spaniards sans smiles?

Dark clouded seas were fierce...Read More

Premium Member Treading Water
Treading hard in a sea of lies
With anchor feet and foggy eyes,
Can we yet float another day
With no ship to take us away?

When seas were calm, we saw the shore.
With swelling seas, we see no more
Midst waves of tergiversation
That inundate...Read More

We hedge our opinions while pledging devotion	
To serving the Captain and sharing our smiles
Through barrels of onions and flea-bearing trials

But even the pirates who pose in a rumble
Are learning the merits of those who...Read More

Premium Member 'I wandered lonely as a cloud' by William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud
Basking in sunlight, feeling proud

When by and by on a different side
A surging wind frolicked natures door
briskly fluttered a peonies tide
as my path descends a valley floor

It took me to places that I knew
wherever fickle...Read More

the house filled with emptiness
surging sea of memories
cascading down the stairs
decorating chandeliers
speckled dust - eyewitnesses

Rise above the swirling waters dark recess.
Rise from deep within the water’s pounding press.
Slowly rise above the centered womb
While tossed by storms
And spun by icy currents;
Break through the surface tension
Inch slowly, with measured rhythm
Through black, to blue to aqua light

You, my homeland, are beauty and bloom unrivaled!

Premium Member Storm-Tide at Robin Hood's Bay

The steep steps go down 
the winding wash,
along the plodded cobbles 
between the cottages
with their smuggling hollows, 
their sleet rinsed eaves.

Beyond the scarp 
the bay tumbles over 
shingle, shale and scree 
to a shore and its contesting tide.

Above my flying...Read More

Gone beneath the surging waves of squally sea of sorrow
Remains of the castle I built with silver sands of dream,
Emerging out of the debris I face the plateau of life fallow.

Boat yard lights disguise,
Twisting sinews of the tide.
Surging waters rush.
Moon-pulled flow, fierce undertow,
Stole my love to depths below.

Numberless now ...
Many, the years since then
When I uncurled my toes and reached thru soil
Pushed up and spread out

While beneath me the richness of the earth nourished
Spreading tendrils through the dark and damp
To give me strength and secure purchase

You pushed me away
You pushed me away
And I remained rooted 
On the spot
Drenched, in the pouring rain,
Having no strength left in me
To even walk away!

The winds surging forth saw me,
Pitied me
And blew me away
As easily as they could
Lifting me up as if I...Read More
