Remember
So many stand alone in sorrow
beneath bare trees and grey skies
I remember when our hearts sung with joy
and our eyes smiled at all they saw
think to the time when we walked in fields of green
to a time when the world...Read More

Lines from the Midlife
I winged with the doves
in my unbounded boyhood.
Those rainbows and the contrails
still stay in the soul.
I sweated several times 
but that never lost me sleep.

Now anxieties sprout 
in the sweat.
I lose me 
in the parching forebodings.
Conditioned by the symptoms,
both heard...Read More

A Granite Sculptor
Midday sun burns. 
An iron chisel plays
sad tunes on a stone.
He enjoys prolonged
                   chiseling.
The granite conceives
from his tool-point, 
giving birth to a...Read More

The Mad Rush
They swarm the street like mad ants
Scraping up all that the can find
They are panic buying while some people are crying
The people are anxious and they are moving in a rush
Something is swirling in the air and it is causing

Save the World Stay at Home
If you want to kill a bug!
Don't just keep it in a jar
You never know when it'll break
Not knowing when it'll get free!

But there are folks out there
Who don't know how to kill a bug!
They let the bug go free

The Cold Mountain

*********
The Eagle mountain towers high behind the hills
To let its crest exhale a fresh breeze of Spring
The acid cold down here, still freezing the wings
As the birds in thick trees snuggle, closely still

Little boy lost
Little boy walked on
All lost in the cold
A wait so long in time
For a saving hand of love
To pick him up with care
Wandering through bush paths
Made his way down harsh waters
And over hot quaking sands
Feet charred with limps of agony

Filled Up to the Core
I feel empty inside
Don't know exactly why
I just want to hide
Somehow close my eyes and die

Somehow let go and die
I wonder to myself, why?
I feel like a worthless fly
I just feel the need to cry

Sweet, yet bitter and harsh as...Read More

Mummy Benny Righteous River
The path of the righteous man

Is beset on either side

Of the torrential river rapids

But i have all the horses on my side

And there are no more fish left to eat

Since the water turned into blood

To be fed upon by a...Read More

Premium Member I, am a Warrior
 
I am a survivor, a warrior,
no matter how far I fall in this life!
My short time full of hurts and scars,
all my journals read like memoirs;
I endured the wreck of childhood,

Human Predators
A submerged world of emeralds and pearls
coral, fish and snails, swarm in multicolor.
Do they choke in a plastic wrapped shore?
But why should I bother? Why should I care? 
I need money for tomorrow
I need fun of long drives,
Climate Change?..Why should...Read More

Collective courage
The year was sixteen-sixty-four
A comet crossed the sky,
And Londoners looked on in fear
Convinced the end was nigh.

The streets which once were paved with gold
Were now awash with waste.
A swarm of flies and scourge of rats
Foretold the death they faced.

And so...Read More

Unfettered mind in the deepest night, 
files on batwings to immense new heights.
While nestled dreamers immersed in sleep,
meet with night things in dreamtime’s keep.

Crickets and frogs will lull them to sleep,
shadows playing about pulls minds into the keep.
Therein they will...Read More

Armed with Wine
I swing into action
Armed with wine 
The spirit willing, really for anything
Watch the Drama

Fire in my eye, dry throat, cracking lip
I stammer a little, with Socratic confidence 
I am stinking of words, ammunition from hell
Most haunting jargon, charging and burning

Premium Member The Starlings Descend


They flow out of a pocket of sky,
a door in the air no one saw
until dark wings shower
over our heads.

Their plumage has a metallic sheen,
as if they were made in parts,
in some elvish workshop, their wings
hammered on last.
Wings that talk...Read More

Newfoundlanders can row, you should see some of'em go,

Ill Wind Blowing
There’s a cult fever chill
in the Assyrian air
Coven chants of Rabshakeh croaks
are placebo heard
‘round the alabaster oval frond

Toadie tongues swallow
swarm of fly words,
a-blowing Nineveh ill
Maggot tone larvae of lies 
carried on an opiate pulse wind,
which conscience kill

Smell the fetid emanations

Story of Moses part 5
Rameses still trying to prevail.
The seventh plague God sent was frozen hail.
Even with all the frozen ice. 
King Rameses still wasn’t nice.
And the ice didn’t even make him impel.
For his stony-heart was harder than the frozen hail.
He wouldn’t listen to...Read More

It is a beautiful day
The sun is shining brightly
Not hot yet, but bright
