a lazy stream
midday sun
beneath a rustic 
wooden bridge
regal koi fish
gentle flowing waves

o so tall
up and out
their leaves
in the breeze
catching sunrays
releasing them
till sundown

Premium Member The World Is Smirking

South of our border has become quite a joke
The world is smirking, can't understand this bloke
Is he really for real
This ordeal is surreal
It's as though Donald some weed he just smoked

Picket-fenced on the tar-sealed blacktop,
rocks packed, churned, into jungle cover
Evict concrete ugliness, in a rainbow hue
Dip jadeite, and emerald pearls, planted
into dead soils, infuse lotsa colorful croci
Call the birds to move a slumming-static
They will come, for the beauteous arrest
and how...Read More

i remember back in 06 i worked in a warehouse
it was for a store that sold varied things
there were varied staff in several departments
we had a boss who was a real hag and she ruled us
like adolf hitler ruled occupied...Read More

Now she must choose between bullet and bloom
But even in this afterglow
It is easy to kill a flower...Read More

Met myself a coming from a time I left some years ago.
I didn’t speak to me, just smiled to myself as we passed.
I knew from my face the best way to go was easy and slow.

Strange memories play out inside my mind
Strange voices from strange people deep within I find
I see another world under another sky
I feel another life is there behind my eyes
Strange dreams I have most every night

And in my dream world I journey to surreal landscapes, to places bizarre and 
strange.  I know the characters in my dream but they are quite out of place.
This imagined world in my subconscious is very psychedelic, and mysterious.

Miss could you lie under this stand
We aren't scratching the words upon your lips

Did I ever say that inside my eye;
That I’m not feeling well no not at all;
Behind my mind I see swirling colors flowing
Floating projectiles of reds, oranges, and grays glowing;

Which in no way should be behave, streams of Disarray;
Just a...Read More

in the ocean, there is darkness
intertwining waves of navy and
pitch black
swallows up the space
folds and twists
curls and coils
into danger, we fall!

in the ocean, there is light
sparkling currents of cyan
and aquamarine
flutters in the crevices
shines and flickers
washes over me
into beauty, we go!

Six. That's how many days, then weeks, then months of power but now those six months have turned into six hours, six minutes, six seconds ago.

I've had people confide in me but still mine I won't show.

I think I'm ashamed?

The Night Hawk

Whom shall I tell my tale of woes?

in the tail of a winter night,

Its meter and rhyme, delicate and sublime,

Surreal how just a faint 
touch can make you melt
or the stroke of fingertips
can incite chills down 
one's spine
How a mere kiss 
leaves your entire 
body unsteady
a whispered word 
breathed into your ear 
can send vibrations through 
your essence leaving...Read More

Viewing, Revisited
Thinly lined eyelids seal the window to his soul.
His cheeks sink in, countenance concealed and dull.
His still lips wrinkle down to a frown, without tone.
With undoing infirmity, his breath has turned to stone.
Feeble flesh has overtaken the strength that he...Read More

There Are No Circles
There are no circles 
in life...yet, history 
does seem to repeat itself, 
entering in and out the
same doors of experience—
though each house swept clean 
they are never
fully sanitized.

We are lineal
(my apologies to Einstein)--
past can be viewed, analyzed 
but when observed...Read More

The Evening Bird
I rose from my couch unhappy, as one of the dead, 
Repose reluctant to join me, 
My window shades enticed, to display a truth
So unnatural to refuse, I did abrade myself to look
A black and white film alighting on...Read More

Intimation of beyond
Intimation of beyond

The attraction of the twilight firmament in a hazy stream,
invited me to ponder on the meadows of this timeless esteem.
Where this rotating light is a constant reflection by global sight,
apparel of celestial confinement in each moment of light.
