New Poems


Dawn, in pink, tiptoes slowly 
across sullen sky, mood unknown,
blue hues hint at what’s to come.
Moon, drowsy from night vigil,
leaves her stars with au revoir.

Sun makes entrance with a yawn,
stretches slowly, surveys domain. 
Nocturnals snug in cosy homes,
day creatures wait...Read More

Premium Member The Horned Owl
The Great Horned Owl sits on his branch
Surveys the land around
Searching for some prey to eat
He knows they do abound

His head turns near full circle
His stomach needs to fill
Has to see a movement
Misses any that stay still

A Hare looks out...Read More

Premium Member Santa Surveys The Scene
Red coats matching, Santa and a reindeer,
His favourite deer from the famous team,
Gazing out on a midnight cold and clear, 
Illuminated by shafts of moonbeam.

His favourite deer from the famous team,
Nimble Dancer, sure-footed in the snow,
Illuminated by shafts of moonbeam,

(...surely goodness and mercy will follow me all of my days and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Psalm 23:6)

The soldier checks his hungry blade 
and surveys forests near

Invading armies swarm like ants
soon eyelids kiss their last goodbye 

Five thousand swords and arrows dance
to the battle cry of the Maid of Orleans...Read More

I saddle my faithful horse, King, for another day on the trail.
My dog, Duke, is anxious to go, I can tell by the wag of his tail!
The soothing sound of creaking leather is music to me,

Summer Breeze

A summer breeze cools scorching leaves
And calls to a reclining and lonely soul
To listen to the whispering of
Memories of long ago.
When babies played on Dad-mowed grass,
And laughed and fell and cried,
But grew strong with love personified,
‘Til Lass met Lad...Read More

Panning for hope, Lion surveys this kingdom
Recognizing it is not the altogether he had originally 
Thought it was.  

The grasses are high; the birds not as rare as they used to be.
Wind blows his mane and frees his soul...Read More

The king surveys his savannah
Confident in his strength
To rule, to lead, to breed
To take what he wants when he wants
His women
His food
No young blood
Dares to challenge

God, Knows Our Tracks
By: Tom Wright

Since Adam and Eve,
tracks, man has placed down.
While some we leave are happy,
others, give occasion to frown.

Tracks, that we as men,
might some time wish to erase.
But only God can remove,
man can only retrace.

These footprints...Read More

Coffee and Company
The old lawman sits
And surveys the scene
Always one to see detail
He raises the cup and sips
The hot coffee his companion
No more to wear the uniform
Or carry the gun in his hip
But there are still the stories 
He tells about some...Read More

Here's some really astonishing news
Even millionaires shop at Wallymart
Doesn't matter how rich people are
A bargain's still close to their heart

Haven't seen any limousines yet
At our local Wallymart store
But surveys say it's definitely true
They also like paying less for more

Dying to be free
Somebody please hold me

Looking for hope outwith
Knowing that there is none within

A true friend is the anchor of love;
She never sleeps, surveys the earth
For a gem for friend, she can wage war 
With God to give this eternity a name, 
A birth of free air, a gospel aflame;
A postscript I scribble...Read More

Premium Member Of Two Minds
Two minds are on a course
For destruction today

One is a garden untended
Now grown over and infested

It has been too busy to notice the gradual decay
And now cannot seem to escape

It surveys the scene to find only neatly manicured lawns

The Journey Backward
He steps out
Proud and stout  
With a defiant smirk
He surveys his scene
Savouring the moment
He had skimmed through the pain
Excitingly moving through the motions
To surpass all hate
He struts forward 
Riding on air
As he made a prime decision 
To confront all...Read More

Blues, Cues and Shoe Stews
Refuse to hang the innocent
While your gang acquits the guilty
In a tooth for a tooth pronouncement
You state in collusion with the mighty.

Accuse with the ruse in your news dissidents
Whipped into submission
To the coercion of incidents
Incorporated into a dictatorial diction.

As gunslingers stride their silent deadly threat,

 Spider on Vase

It hiked the slope and scaled with ease
Its several legs had gained momentum

A stormy, cold scraped winter sight,
quiet song birds forsake flight,
down fluffed on pale limbs lucite,
a fantasy landscape, pearl blue.

In grey tone wrap, mist frozen dew,
her smooth complexion, silver hued,
Luna surveys earth's wild retinue
in closed dens of hibernate sleep.

Snow drifts creep...Read More
