A little me time
In the forest I’ve found a spot,
every direction looks the same,
Nothing special about this place, 
doesn’t even acquire a name.

Somewhere you can be alive,
Not worry about a single thing, 
Just for a while it’s yours alone,
The silence of a day...Read More

Beneath the moon, I see more than your presence before me,
Mesmerized by a sparkle in those eyes causes my heart to ambush more than a couple of lost beats,
Self-inflicted pain I cause myself by looking up to catch my breath...Read More

This truth of mine
As a child, I learned that life is cruel
And justice is blind
My loving family filled with secrets and care
All I ever wanted 
A love to call my own
A place to be unafraid of my surroundings 
Why am I ever denied

Country Church Nestled in the Wilderness

A country church nestled in a peaceful valley,
Against a glorious backdrop of tall mountains,
That were fashioned before Eden’s retched  malady,
That beset the human soul and rich surroundings.

Beautiful dog-wood trees with blossoms snowy white,
Bounded by rocks as old as the...Read More

Premium Member My Garden By July
Buttercups, daffodils and bluebells mark my garden so sweetly
One row of flowers enhancing the surroundings rather neatly
Tomatoes, carrots, beans, peas and onions growing underground
By July I will have the most glorious garden of anyone around

Political Snakes
Written: by Miracle Man
2-6-2020

A snake never feels threatened,
because it has the innate ability to camouflage itself,
It blends in with it’s surroundings for self preservation.
But no matter how often it sheds its skin,
A snake remains a snake.

When they call the...Read More

Addiction and Suicide
Drug Addiction and suicide are no joke.
Some people find it entertaining when those individuals croak.

This epidemic can be unspeakable.

Coffee Wakes Me Up
Coffee wakes me up
to my surroundings,
wearing bunny slippers
to keep my feet warm as
caffeine provides a lifeline
to my senses internally,
notifying me to quit
yawning and be alert
to face the day with gusto.

The Wolf

Much maligned animal of lore
With gnarled snarl frothing saliva,
And fangs that rip and claws that gore
And eyes that penetrate to choke the craw.

Ears that hear the slightest stirring
And nose to detect the faintest scent,
In camo coat to blend with...Read More

leaving rubble in his wake

imprisoned by apprehension tightly
