The Curse of Conquerors Past, Part III
...Not many people could unite such a force,
it was Williamson who was the lynch-pin,
if he could be killed they all would splinter,
amongst the horde civil wars would begin.

This, it appeared, was the best option left,
even if it meant many more...Read More

Premium Member SOJOURN THROUGH TIME
Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness in
Opulent hues that color our lives as we age and
Journey through changing circumstances with 
Obstacles that crop up unforseen, and so
Unexpectedly that we are caught off guard
Relying on instinct to help us cope, 
Never...Read More

Henhouse Party
The chook house was found in disarray;
eggs were broken in a manic affray,
there were playboys galore; 
drunk chooks on the floor -
the police are suspecting foul play.

Never know when we converse
Whose path we’ll happen to traverse 
Can anyone really be that perverse
To willy nilly cast out a nasty curse
To chant for effects brutally adverse 
With implications bitterly diverse
An evil voodoo spell I must reverse
Boils hives and...Read More

Ono no Komachi translations
As I slept in isolation
my desired beloved appeared to me; 
therefore, dreams have become my reality
and consolation.

Premium Member Breeze Shushes Fire
dainty gossamer wings 
automatic fluttering
savoring the meadow
faerie magic afoot
on this summer’s solstice

breeze feels her presence
keeps it to herself 
understanding faerie’s privacy
suspecting her mission
wanting to witness it for herself

baby butterfly yawns deeply
settles down for  the night
tosses and turns, finally gets...Read More

Reaching for sanctuary in this unlit hotel, without electricity
Due to a storm, stuck here, in this bizarre circumstance
I precariously felt my way in the dark with a trembling hand 
I recognized the old smell and feel of flocked wall paper.

Premium Member A Stroll Through City Market
I took a stroll through City Market 
Kansas City's cultural queen, with vegetables and flowers
Concrete words leaning against their water buckets.
Old women's hair unnatural colors shining from restaurants

Enough of that, inertia at work here, Kansas City's pride
Cracks on sidewalk, ugly...Read More

The King of Diamonds sat upon the throne
with Queen of Hearts there seated by his side;
he ruled with fists of iron and it was known
by all the lowly peasants far and wide.

Premium Member INTO THE WOODS


Into the woods the three did wander
Graceful teenage girls carefree
I had great cause to ponder
Surely someone held the key
When they were never seen again
Suspecting things grimly gone awry
What evils lurks what evil men
Might dare beneath God’s watchful eye

Premium Member What Did I Do Wrong
They brought me out of storage today a day late.
Christmas was yesterday.
I am not giddy, not happy, not optimistic because usually
I get to be revered and celebrated for three or four weeks
by now, 
every year, being petted and
decorated,
admired
and loved.

Not this...Read More

Theater of Utter Charm - Part 30
in the language of personal amplification

into an actual you

the outcomes you generate
from a lack of detail

DOLPHINS
Ripples upon the water
Followed by a sudden splash
Out of the corner of my eye
All I saw was a shiny gray flash
Patiently waiting for it to emerge
So I can confirm just what I saw
Suspecting there was two of them
But wondering if...Read More

TILL I CATCH A STRANGER
As your lips spread like the rising sun,
And your dimples widen like a pond;
I search between your milky teeth
To find the confessions hid beneath your tongue.

As you throw your arms around me
And press your soft body with mine,
I search between...Read More

Premium Member A new beginning
Rain's drizzling from forest canopies,
Evening sun peeking through leaves,
Flowers rising from decaying hues
Amid the woods tangled and untidy.

Shadows are dancing unknowingly 
Whispering evening wind songs,
To the music of a distant waterfall.

They witnessed my arrival 
With a cautious screech and roar,

Thank You
Thank You!

For showing me the world is cruel, 
evil, to be cautious, suspecting, untrusting, 
and doubt other peoples intentions;
when I needed to feel safe.

For causing insurmountable pain, 
nightmares, psychological instability,
and permanent emotional scars;
when I needed comfort.

For not telling me you...Read More

Hi, I'm a wooden duck
Hunters uses as decoy
Half suspecting young bucks.
High on the pond I float,
Hidden by the big pines.
His rifle cocked for prey,
Hitting a fawn all fooled.

Surprise in Disguise
The biggest gift under the tree
was a box full of boxes
each of six, all wrapped but empty.

By the time he'd opened the seventh
and read the enclosed clues,
he was ready for any surprise.
Never suspecting Mom would choose
tickets for his favorite sport.
