Premium Member Maid of the Sea
Leaving her blue salty home,
she emerges from the sea 
changing her fish tail into human legs
within the times of the full moon.

Her bare figure exposed;
long auburn tresses swaddles her frame
as she walks silently on the sandy beach 
to dance like...Read More

--for Every Woman
Ajeyemi Wasiu
The world begins with your
womb that houses me.
The world begins with your
love that swaddles me, Woman.
The world begins with your laughter
that engulfs everywhere.

The world begins with your face
where the spell of light...Read More

Foggy Pools of Gray
Lost in deep of winter woods,
swirls of fog drink me in; 
strokes like shadows etched by pine, 
snowflakes dust a gelid fringe.

Stoking flame of blushing cheeks
above the embers of ruby lips, 
imprisoned behind charcoal streaks
wisps of smoke in steel-hued rings.

A long road, a long ride for pondering.
A burst of occasional hee-hawing.
Bumping along, did they sing, did they talk,
this man who dreams dreams, with Mary he walks.

Did the star follow them to Bethlehem,
encircling with golden diadem
the unborn Son...Read More

Sacred sheen swaddles soul made of serene,
soul sun-lit, lifts sinless, into saints midst;
eternal, everlasting evergreen,
essence exits Earth’s exist; white-light kissed.

Soul sun-lit, lifts sinless into saint's midst,
guardian’s wings whispering soul above;
essence exits Earth’s exist white-light kissed,
blue blessing petals dressing soul with...Read More

Across The Golden Pew
one cold winter night,
resting on the golden pew
deeply lost in your thoughts
voice of loving prayers
soft and shiny rainbow lights
distance between you and i
an alluring mystery
a heartbroken agony
where are you Neel?
mischievous grin
deep eyes
melting like caramel,
my soul resides within you
maneuvering  ways...Read More

Animal Crackers
Lions, tigers and bears oh my! The sweet taste of childhood melts on my tongue as I reminisce on the days where there were no consequences or worries – only joy. With each crunch, the animals take me back to...Read More

Premium Member Old Thin Flannel
He swaddles me in soft-worn flannels
to comfort my hard-won heart.

He waters me
washed bare smooth souled
with tears of suffering
and joy.

He caves my soundless nights
with dreams from other times
and regenerating live imagined memory
as co-arising blind intuition's balancing
tipping ecojustice peace
flowing like soft warm...Read More

A New Religion
A new religion
That can the future divine
A new god
That can tell us whence we came
A nirvana of nonsense
That only increases our ignorance
A dismal wreck to people’s conscience

We fight among ourselves
To shed as much blood
As a sacrifice to hatred requires
We have...Read More

That a gun given billing must duly be fired.

Do you understand
My heart aches with honesty,
Honestly I wish it would stop,my heart that is....
An appendage of pending trust,
The lust of the lazy,the must of guilt.
Flowers must wilt,eyes will get hazy,
Thoughts get crazy,yet my cup does not tilt.
I am the land whose...Read More

Canyon Train
A silent stillness swaddles the night
A restless wind addled floor doth spite
From rim's spout vaporous cloak descends; prescience to slight
Above melancholy mist, hoot owl resounds with doleful delight

In the distance, a billowy plume rises; darkness to blight
A shrill whistle echoes...Read More

Cries of Life
Warm sun over head, as rays beaming down,
She stood in the shadow of the big oak tree,
She crying fell to one knee, alone now free,
Her gallant indian brave lover was gone.

Watch the sad oaks bend
Of the visions of in the...Read More

Premium Member Frank--- Friend and Spiritual Teacher
A holy man in a hospital bed
Preciously wrapped,
Like a mystic infant
Radiant, beautifully sculpted
against white sheets.

You're dying you say.
Your voice a lamp,
Another lesson strung
on a rosary of sacred moons,
to be held in prayer,
while darkness swaddles you....Read More

Sunset and Midnight
~Curling flames rise in the western sky~
~Molten hues paint vivid pictures~
~Heavens light shines gracefully~
~Warmth and love radiate~
~Orange and fuschia~
~Shimmering peace~
~Sun lick'd sky~


~Velvet sheath swaddles our land of dreams~
~Pinprick'd stars peeping peacefully~
~Dancing moon balanced in grace~
~Whispers of nature sings~
~Bullfrogs and crickets~
~Rushing...Read More
