Premium Member Moonlight Betrays You
Moonlight is not merely the stuff of romance,
Fortunately there for the vital kiss,
As the infatuated lover takes his chance
To be with his love in a moment of bliss -
Moonlight can give more than a silvery glance,
It can cut a swathe...Read More

The Desire Of A Pine Tree


The contours cascading from the higher Himalayan slope
hold me, the upstanding cone of jade, a coniferous pine,
gilded in gold soaked from the swathe of glistened snow,
turning to mirror of flakes, flushed by dawn’s yellow sun.

A coat of cinnabar I get...Read More

The Devil Who Knew
Mega-wealth you seek, let me decide,
Ok we’ll trade, work out a fair price,
Sometimes I’m quite extortionate,
This special case, maybe very nice.

Depends weather, you please me,
Better be good, for the exchange,
Though take great heed, in advance,
Never am I duped, or shortchanged.

Swathe Of Stillness


Whistling wind plays flute in
orchestra of air
where flying on music
birds in blue share.

Music flows rippling in
broken heart in despair
as stillness swathes soul
with bliss so rare.

Premium Member will you catch me
If I should reach out, will you take my hand,
and hold me ‘til I reach that promised land?
Will you stay with me after tears have dried,
and close these lids the moment I have died?
Might you remain for just a moment...Read More

A Collaborated Love

A butterfly you float in my garden at sunset,
Amber silents, daylight violets.
From behind the shroud of hesitant mind’s layers
Custom stares.
Through the surging gale flapping your wings’ flair
Love comes here,
Proclaiming the tenet that unveils the truth…
Love is where there is caring...Read More

Was it a reproduction
Of a Rothko in a book resting on his lap,
A swathe of black sky over 
A grey sea, perhaps, 
That triggered it.
He recalled pictures of
Brutalist concrete bunkers and silos,
Sinister dark steel ramps,
That carried doddlebugs and V2 rockets.
He...Read More

Of charm and elegance, a study in grey!

Tourist Trails

Savouring the swathe of Southern England;
orchards, oast houses, open fields,
cliffs with caverns camera-worthy,
splashing sea and salty cooling breeze,
well-trodden trails, treasures from history,
hidden hostelries, houses of refreshment.

The descent from the Downs, dropping slowly
to moist meadows where men once toiled
among heaps...Read More

blueness in depth sense
around dark green nature
butterflies flying on flower to flower,
worms, maggots, snakes, birds
swathe it as for their living palace,
its mountain of world

dropping, dripping tears
from its genteel head,
oh; its crying, poignant yelling
falling as fountain
by seeing chaotic universe!

Aspire to disseminate inspiration
Respire to ameliorate affection
Mire fires and spires of misinformation

Hobnob with love dancers
Fight and blight social cancers

Hurry Not, Worry Not
Hurry not, tarry not, worry not

In the best years you enjoy
Banking and investing in companionship coffers

ANGELS' BREATH
ANGELS’   BREATH



Yesterday there were none;
And it’s as if God suddenly 
Woke the angels and said,
“Let there be dandelions.”

I can’t resist the urge
To leave the woodland path 
And swathe through their bright petals -
A thousand yellow smiles swaying in...Read More

Soaring higher, ascending further from perception,

Unfamiliar
Veiled under a sheer red silk cloth,
She lay naked for a while.

An hour to dawn, 
Breathing in the darkness,
She hopes to again be born.

Tasting
A sweet breeze,
Seeing
A million stars,
Still a void stays 
Like there’s no end to the night.

Get rid of the Strid with its seething torrent trapped amid the caves
In downward spiral coursing through a web of underwater stone
Oh that the river would have carved a safer way away from occulted potholes

spring blesses with scent a mind 
encased in February’s mummy-swathe.

March into Spring

His icy grip comes loose at last.
   His blanket cannot but recede,
Like tides that breached a floodgate, he
Her coming can no more impede.

that wakes the buds and...Read More

The City Is Burning
The City burns,
a dappled bower is stifling with heat,
a swathe of crispy green grass is singed and spoilt,
a posse of dainty tender flowers is marred and tangled,
all now darkened with war's fires,
the grounds are blackened with fumes and fear.
But none...Read More
