Passing Time with Rhyme
snow-covered winter came calling
lightning thundered split trees are falling
gurgling streams spread spring’s overflow
bringing new life to all that grow

flowers dressed in red, white and blue
articulate how do you do
pastel hues are too many to mention
splendor shouts at this glory convention

From newborn eyes lunacy hides
A foetus far beyond sight and tightly curled 
Too distant to be blurred or even supposition 
Compressed into angular corners of mere possibility 
Sleeping as babies sleep 
To the right and left of weeping

Nuremberg to Washington
Nuremberg, Nuremberg, I’ve done nothing wrong
only followed orders, the children only song.
First it was the word, next it was the book
then it was history, surreptitiously they took.

From a child’s birth, others choose the way 
raising children skillfully, parents have no...Read More

Life On The Street
A monochrome of boho days
segue one another surreptitiously.
Endless pantomimes of idle chatter flutter by.
Cantilever bridge, a one stop halting site for gossip and suspense.
Small talk, bespoke winged creature, Combe of pleuron.
Turin shroud spotter in the mise en scene melting pot.

than those for whom they were water substitute
When they competed with each other
licking the snow flakes off the corners of their mouths surreptitiously: 
They didn't know the taste of the tears

a hurry home hour
this sill of winter
just one step away from 
the revealing white of snow.

summer come and gone
see how they run

frost, its icy fingers
touched our lands this morning
light crept sluggishly 
from behind the horizon
to do battle for prominence
here above my cottage.

the white-cold face of winter
smiled surreptitiously
arrogant in knowing 
that his power...Read More

Premium Member SIMPLICITY
In a pond, near a stream,
The barefoot little girl crouched silently.
Only the screech of a bluebird was heeded.
Plus prayers for a true friend.
That she really needed.

It was beautiful to see her honesty!
I observed surreptitiously behind
an Oak tree.
Such simplicity in her...Read More

Surreptitiously its
Tendrils caress,
Reaching out gently,
Ardently intertwining
Gaining ground.
Little by little, it will
Eclipse and smother
Overwhelmingly pernicious if
Left to become

Oh, how wonderfully innocent
and juvenile, 'twas for me.
You, scooting surreptitiously.
closer and closer to me.
Like a soft, gentle caterpillar,
slithering and smiling.
Making its way home in the
still of the night.

I clutched my lovely, flowered
Then my gold cross with a 
sparkling aqua gem...Read More

     ~My Liquid Mind~

Like a forceful stream from a
magnificent mountain, does 
my opalescent mind slide.
Commanding of any crevice or
rock in its path,to gracefully, 
move aside.

It dances in flowers, grass, trees,
and never once looks back.
It laughs joyfully, as a child on

Express and Address All of the Mess
Express and Address All of the Mess

Ourselves have to surreptitiously express,
And much stress must be sure to address;
Feeling inside,
Refuse to hide;
All sins with wrongdoings should confess.

Valentines Day Always Found Me Quiver
Ring with no feather in my cap only envy
at handsome man drakes with bucks,
who could bank on "hot chicks" willingly

It cut me like a knife; it cut me through and through,
Such poignancy in pain, such anguish I never knew.

Bore it bravely without a murmur, silently to bleed.

Dear Sue,

I am remembering our strong negative responses
to the young woman who surreptitiously read
her aunt's very private diary,
filled with vulnerable statements
of the most intimate nature
and transparently lusty spirit,

Yet, though secretive,
then took a bold black marker
and wrote vulgar, poisonous words
on most...Read More

In rabbit’s fur I find you

you look beautiful tending the fragrant gardenia garden

Premium Member Straining Toward Sanity
I see, and fear, a trumpian landscape,
usually, and more casually, outside any safe inside sanctuary.

Infrequent glances inside windstorms
and rivers of underground currents
surreptitiously culture shape
transform vertically visual landscapes,
motherlands of ecotherapy above, outside
forests and deserts,
Earth's inside
farms and gardens, windblown
oceans and continents in-between...Read More

Hitch 5: Chills
I thought, almost immediately,
there was strangeness in your car.
You had picked me up early
in the bright, hot morning,
December's heat was full,
but you froze me to the bone.
You were oddly quiet,
but the precious few words that you spoke
may have been
the strangest...Read More
