Dear Davey, my darling, my bright pirate boy
Your lips are the prize in the night of my joy
Your eyes can erase me or teach me the cure
Of how you can face me by all you endure

Your sigh is the sign...Read More

Premium Member Same Cloudy Reason
There once was a white cloud
That lived in the sky
Every 10 years it passed
Just blew in, and flew by.

Never dropped any rain
Never talked much less sighed
The craziest thing I saw… 
All I could say was my, my.

When I was ten...Read More

There is a bee guarding me
on the balcony
Standing there watching, very still not winging
Who sent this bee to fortify me?
Watchbee, patrol-bee; striped winged defender
Will you be leaving back to your sender?

Perhaps it was he;
Whom thought about me
Under the sun, under...Read More

Your Heart
Why compare yourself to somebody else
You are your own self
and unique in your own way
Instagram, Twitter or Facebook
it's not about your followers or how you look
Don't let your ship run aground
while you examine those around
It's not about others
or what they...Read More

On Lemmings, Chickens and Things

Across the Tundra Lemmings race
To the cliff then over the face.

The prevailing theory laments
That this is not mass hysteria
But miscalculated judgement
In migratory behavior.

And I watch my neighbors hoarding
Lest they should find themselves wanting.

Clipped to...Read More

A Rattling Rhyme

You a fake yell from hot tin roof top
Nobody listens but you don’t stop
You pronounce you will make a great name
In high pitch voice you try to proclaim.

You say there are colors in your eye
We all know it is nothing...Read More

East of Eden's Land
East of Eden’s Land multicolored blossoms glow.
By instinct we surmise why such beauty was planned
to divert our eyes from wild weeds that also grow
east of Eden’s Land.

toothy and yellow.
Sun-petals next to
my grandson, who

under the title.

Seasonal surmise, of
one planting, upending soil -
captured with one grand sun
and a pearly white smile.

King of this barn I am said the owl, and he said it in one loud caw.

Lately…here in our own country…it has occurred to me

While in deep sleep revelation of Matthew Scott woke
I surmise yours truly i.e. me
a slacker boomer - ye,

This barren desert hot and dry
as noonday sun is beating down;
I’ve walked for miles, no one in sight,
and over head the buzzards fly
awaiting death to end my plight.
My throat is dry, my skin parched brown
while on my face I wear...Read More

Sky Balloons Purple Parade part 2 of 2

Lifted like a curtain at the circus 
Curved at the ends where land meets sky

The Grey Skies
Staring into the bleak grey sky

The reason... the meaning... why..?

But how on Earth can this ever be?
Is there anything out there for me

In the absence of complication,
trials and tribulation become distant memories,
Above sapphire skies delight sanguine eyes
inspiring forthcoming musings of the mind.

Unless, that is, one thinks as I do,
that smooth sailing may dull creativity,
In complacency there lies no essence of surprise,
thus inspiration...Read More

I cannot move, I cannot see

Maybe one of those lucid dreams
Tingles up and down my spine

Wanting to keep us safe as a well-gotten prize.
