Premium Member Where Poppies Grow
(Paul Callus & Eileen Manassian ~ March 2020)

Where poppies grow in brilliant bursts of red
and bumble bees go searching with intent
she often goes; there sits with dreamy eyes
suspending time, quiescent moments spent.

Where poppies grow in brilliant bursts of red
and bumble bees go searching with intent,
she often goes; there sits with dreamy eyes
suspending time, quiescent moments spent.

The wind intrudes on chain of mellow thoughts;
it sifts through youthful zest deprived of guile.
With gaze...Read More

Turbocharged you refuse to stop at the sentry

Full speed ahead on the racetrack of manipulation

Safety belt suspending the breaks in free flight

Airbag punctured long ago in rapid disconnect

I put up traffic lights for you at so many T-junctions

Premium Member Life's Temporary

Nearing the end of life's rope
time starts unraveling the years.
And suspending even hope
dreams drown in yesterday's tears.

Memories locked in the past
are free to enter your dreams. 
And like shadows time has cast
they project multiple themes.

The love you sowed will survive
but...Read More

The insiders are breathing 
Coming home 
Responding in response :

Intimacies swirl amongst fallen cues
Connections to disconnections 
Opening night and day
Suspending dark and light
Gathering up what was suppressed 

Hands against frosted glass 
Blurred information 
Visions of childhood return 
Learning curves burn...Read More

Suspending Gravity
Somebody save my soul.
Somebody save my soul.
It's tattered and torn.
It's hung in a hole.

Somebody save my soul.
Somebody save my soul.
Deeply scarred,
carved to your benefit.
Whittled away to keep you at bay.

Save my soul.
Save my soul.
It's deep in this hole,
and I beg...Read More

I Know of Great Love

I know of great love...
the kind of passion that
surpasses ecstasy into
a world of oblivious bliss
soaring among the clouds
in the ethers of heaven
with a newness that
never grows old or faint.

I savor these golden
treasures within my heart,
within my...Read More

“I deserve to be happy”
they said, jaws set
eyes glazed
Selfish Ones seeing only
what they wanted to see
tunnel-vision of mind's eye
narrowed down to one word
while others' protests
were utterly unheard

Thinking they could
by sheer determination
set themselves free
from the rest
of society
laws of nature
like drops of...Read More

It helps me to optimize possible health-improving wealth outcomes
by temporarily suspending disbelief
we have each chosen to be spiritually reborn into
each and every WinWin opportunity
to optimize mutual healthy-wealth
naturally developed for cooperatively-owned
and integratively managed 
personal enrichment
extending families

Terrasse Dufferin

As the night air warmed us,
The music had drawn us,
To the ambience of the Terrasse Dufferin.

We were mesmerized in awe,
To all that we saw,
As the music and dancing went on.

In the warm air we could smell the St. Lawrence,
The river...Read More

Fictitious Articulation
A faux pas meant to be funny
a complicated compliment 
undressing the address

Words intermingle
suspending the single

Ghosts masked in the past
hypocrisy lasts
living a lie
tears in the sky

Explaining the unexplainable
a throne unattainable
reprecussions released
a mindset at ease

Lay down your pen
surrender's at hand

A denial of service! It’s fine by their laws!

Premium Member September's Winding Road
There is on a green hill, a winding road, 
Where September golden rods are blooming, 
Even the sandy path bears reflections 
A line of fence posts, lavender shadows
Twining purple morning glory faces
Reaching, desiring the cool autumn sun,
Footprints follow, one...Read More

See the life threw a glass of shattered wages. 
Using those to create a world with wrong perceptions, 
Money, lust… and a whole lot misconceptions.

The day has come, a smiling sun shines through bold bars, across the room to the door, ajar, projecting the bars on the door as if it is definitely and eternally closed to go out or come in.

My Space
A very special place, beautiful, magical and withdrawn,
It's happy and content, never sad and forlorn,
I imagine to portray it's perfection will be tough,
No matter how hard I try I can't seem to get enough.

With fields and woods, ponds and ditches,

The Bridge
Swirling, treacherous turmoil 
Expands and contracts below.
Metal clanks and cars screech.
Bare hillsides stretch the landscape.

Red strands twist and turn,
Weaving and stretching,
Border to border,
Suspending life 

Heels balance, 
Hard on concrete
Toes hang,
Reckless in the wind

The night sun buries his face to earth,
Slowly suspending his daily harvest -
Piles of colour and heaps of brightness 
In oast house and warm barn.

Rays of darkness  
Speed across the twilight 
Sky, steal into small corners of the loft,
Scavengers...Read More

Insults By Trump
Insults By Trump

Trump's insults seem to be unending
And on mind of a child are depending
Don't invite people and be a deterrent
Knowledge of issues is never current
His campaign should be suspending.
