Rainy Day Dreams

How sweet’s the lovely scent and sound of rain
As I look out amidst the sultry storm
From bursting clouds upon the window pane, 
I feel the chills on my svelte body's form. 
The thrill of thunder claps and lightning...Read More

Premium Member The Dying Rose
The rose can't brave the strength of agile time,
Which thwarts her pride and takes away her grace;
She harbours hope to rise in a new clime.

The rose had scoffed at that yonder wild thyme,
For it was not endowed with a svelte...Read More

Image in a Mirror

She sits all alone in her bedroom tonight,
and stares in the mirror while dreaming her dreams;
she thinks to herself in the soft evening light,
and wonders why she has no friends so it seems.

Perhaps it’s because of her...Read More

What If There Was No Poetry
What if I never learned to put words to paper 
or if my mind never taught itself to unwrap a fantasy 
What if math was the only textbook on earth 
and calligraphy never existed, nor rhyming words 
What if I...Read More

His friend Kenny had the just the answer:

There was once a fat Santa Claus felt

That his Mrs Claus wanted him svelte

But the wiggle and jelly

That so jiggled his belly

Was the thing made her icicles melt.

Twas the night before Christmas - came like a flash,
Mob of gingerbread reindeer prodding elves for cache.

The Clausman reigning, doling out orders this stint.
Lady of his, keeps his tongue supplied with peppermints.

The vainglorious list of children, like snow through the...Read More

Svelte Sylvia loved acrobatics
She did it in gyms and in attics
She did a pole vault
And a triple somersault
She is known as a fitness fanatic

Premium Member Age Brings Aches and Pains
I am holding things out farther so I can read them
Until I realize they are still fuzzy
So I get 1.5 reading glasses
After a bit I am happier with 3.0 reading glasses
I used to exercise a lot.
I was svelte and happy
But...Read More

Premium Member Sirens
Several sirens singing on the shore
Called Calypso’s crew for them to adore.
Willing witless wanderers;
Oblivious obeyers, 
Which waves washed through a rocky tidal bore.

Svelte sisters sieved the sailor’s gore
That the salty surging sea cast ashore.
Boiling briny blunderers
With olive oil and oysters
And...Read More

I had a wonderful dream,
last night,

I was not me,
I was svelte,

Refused a piece of cake,
ate all my vegetables,

Was an expert in karate,
earned my black belt,

My hair was long,
lustrous waves of gold,

I kicked my mental demons,
Into oblivion,

They flew thru,
the magnetic meridian,

I...Read More

This is my 6,466th poem. Shooting for 6.666
for some strange reason and time and season
and only teasing.

Sizzling Surprises 

I’m ruminating here on this promenade of sizzling surprises.
I’m sitting here, watching the living denizens walk on by.
None of these sentient beings ever look at me, 
Never see or acknowledge me, not for one second,
Never say even one...Read More

A Horse for Dinner
I went to the vet today,
Most eager to hear what he’d say,
‘Threw me out on my ear,
With words most sincere,
“That horse is too fat, no more hay”.

I pondered his words for a while,
Not sure I could do this in style,
Made...Read More

Face To Face With A Nameless Dame
Hold your fire
Let your sharp tongue retire
When to the fore sneaks your ire

Increasing carelessness danger
Thinking in your mind you’re an indomitable ranger
Although in your own skin you turn into a total stranger

Body somehow cut off from your mind
With a baggage...Read More

A Dream Died A Dreadful Death
Lightning and thunder did clash
In ventricles within my heart
Vying whether to lash
At every part

That feels emotions
In hearts of dames
Whose love motions and portions
Laid claims

To the indifference my heart felt
When Hazel Fidelia ended our engagement
In July nineteen seventy seven to melt
