Premium Member Garish Should Be
Garish should be the undertone
so say the ones who hold the line

and actions stated to justly...Read More

Glowing Forever


As simple as bringing a flame to a candle
I now hold the match ever tight in my hand
Striking the swatch in an emery fashion
Watching the flame as it takes its command

Flickering fond as the room was once darkened
Sending a...Read More

SAVED SOUL

Hey you, you got money
For this honey,
No, but need it ,
Take my watch,
It’s a swatch,
I need it now!
Not now, cops around,
Things are hot,
But need this pot!
Let’s be done 
Then I’ll run!
And be gone!
People staring,
People gazing,
Heart is racing,
Want it now!
Ah,...Read More

lightning strikes respond in-kind
     rain’s promise fulfilled

Red and Gray
Skipping down the walk on a sunless, foggy day;
a bright red coat surrounded in shades if gray.

In a smoldering mass grave, on a sad and shameful day;
a swatch if bright red coat, surrounded in ashes if gray.




Inspired by Schindler's List...Read More

Thanks For Your Help
All her belongings fitted into a suitcase and a small carry-on bag.

After 18 years, my helper was going home for good.

Of such warm nights
And such cold days

O the red moon
O the blue sea

And the wild winds
Of the far north

And the hot lash
Of the deep south

And the tea leaves
In the East sea

And the land ho
Of the West call

And the sweet swatch

Those smiles are comforting
Those naughty tease that runs to my spine
I have in mind forever and a day of time.

You showed me the beauty of today
And let me forget of how tired I am yesterday
Before you depart,...Read More

My first love

I knew it in  my mind but my heart can never accept it

A Peculiar Sight
It was, perhaps, the perfect place to watch
the storm roll into the eastern boundaries.
Too far inland to be submerged, the swatch
of land was close enough for the fierce breeze.
Come night, the sky had already darkened
to black, hours before, and bright...Read More

Visual Melodies

Fresh evergreens stand beside
A crisply clear slow moving brook
Reflections of minnows glitter
In the midday sun’s warm look

Bare branches began to don
The tiny green leaves of spring
Nature’s ring of promise encircles
The earth with an array of floral bling

Exquisite beauty peeks through

At the Mall
As soon as I stepped through the doors of the mall
I ran into two old friends John and Paul
They were with two girls the first named Karen
And I think the other girl was named Sharon

I went to the supermarket to...Read More
