New Poems

Margaret began at age of nine
on eight-till-five shift down the mine.
And there's two sisters working there
to push and pull coal carts they share.
Sometimes they sort the spoil from slack
and crack to cleave large cobs of black.

a brood lumbers in the fold of an oak - slumbering

while mary go round and round - catching the affections of her father

under my bed - blooms are enchanted to leave

and a hidden mole peaks from pink lace like a...Read More

I want to ride a zebra

and race the rays of radiance
through heat-waves sailing gradients -

a folly wild - a mood untamed
elated hands in bristled mane
unbridled veins uncorked champagne...

yes! elevate sedate heart rate
I WANT to ride a zebra

In the intimate interlace of chance and fate, in the ultimate interplay of time and place, and with the consummate checkmate of my human dignity, all that is -- is over, in the stormy, swarming space of mere moments.

Premium Member TALL AND PROUD

Susan was a cancer survivor
After her mastectomy
She went thru her blue period
But I didn’t know her then
When I met her she glowed
Exuberant and beautiful
Celebrating the gift of life
Dancing to share her joy
Her story and her poetry
Her day of enlightenment
Had happened...Read More

Premium Member What Should We Do with Uppity Women
Women of the early 1900’s should have been justifiably outraged
Owned like chattel by their men
Elections were held willy nilly
And if you did not have a willy, you were eliminated
The rare woman who thought she should be
a voter, was not even...Read More

Twas the night before Christmas, when all thru the Soup bowl,
Not a poet was writing, not even the musing mole.
All their pens were hung by the chimney with bubble gum,
Hoping Winged Warrior would lose and let them win some.

Premium Member Sylvia's Flower Garden
Musky fragrance inundates
my nostrils as I enter 
the garden center:
a rhapsodic feeling
in idyllic surroundings.
The air is humid
like an Amazon garden,
heat barely tolerable
making my glasses misty.
Soft music, dulcet and sweet,
swamp the amazing conservatory. 
The caterpillar had shed off its chrysalis, 
and...Read More

To others she is homeless
out living on the street.

Living—she is—living free.

Is she?

She’s a paradox unanswered,
A question unresolved. 

Is she truly homeless-

I wonder, as she passes with a smile,
pushing her heavy burdens with flair, with style?

Or,...Read More

Maybe our convictions are convictions after all,
They lock us in a prison in our minds. 
They keep us from living in this moment. 
We’re out of synchronicity---out of present time.

Convicted by convictions, we are...Read More
