There is a way:
Just look within;
Feel stillness play
Wise poise unseen.

See what you see:
Feel grace and light;
Just let things be —
Stillness heals sight.

Heed deep insight:
Silence does speak
As waves cast flight
In timeless peak.

So come away:
A still small voice
In surreal sway
Bestows sure poise.

One Day in Our Life
The unfettered ways of those halcyon days
on the warmest of Summers recalled
We rushed through the flowers and cherished the hours
in their fragrance of loves hallowed halls
Where a sweetened perfume and an old fashioned tune
was to bathe us in its gentle...Read More

My Horse And Me

Down the verdant meandering valley
Draining the dregs of the fading dusk
Beyond the threshold of thick wild woods
My white stallion gallops in emerald prairie.

Gossamer gloss glazes the supple skin
Wisps of silk cloud swirl on the satin mane
Tossing in swinging waves of...Read More

Rushing words
A rushing wind
	roaring strong
across broad land
	bearing all away

black clouds overhead
	like rolling hillsides are
monochrome colors lost
	a barren landscape seen

jagged lightning flashes down
	as mighty thunder roars
a cannonade of the gods
	sharply strikes the land

sharply slashes hard raindrops down
	as if to tear the flesh

There's a vase full of flowers
By the window
There's a bowl full of golden fish
On the table
Oh and my man has left me
My man left me goodbye
 oh I wish that I was a baby
So that I would cry

Premium Member Urban Sprawl
Ancient Jurassic stone
casts out the grime
long gone the fog
of industrial crime.
Main thoroughfare
now left in peace
no local blues to sing
in the old coachman’s Fleece*.

When moonlight bathes
within the silver stream
and moor lane glistens
invoking its crystal beam.
The low moor awakes
shadows cast aside
the morning...Read More

For the Love of People
People living, feeling, caring bring comfort,
City people or country folk both enjoy strawberries,
Hick town people have plenty of space,
Suburban people new to earth’s cities draw dairies.

My people can contact your people who are beautiful people,
International people serve dessert people in...Read More

Premium Member A Tweet Mornin'
Starring through my kitchen window...
An eerie blanket of grey skies chills my bones
A background of barren trees sway gently
'Neath the newly yellowed forsythia bush a soft voice speaks to me
"Tweet, tweet" it spoke

The Rich And Famous

Too many view themselves as being upper crust,
just because they have more money than another.
But does that mean they deserve our undying trust,
with opinions they attempt to sway or smother. 

They exist on a pedestal...Read More

Where the tree dips in water, ripples propagate wavy motion,
Meandering with zealous vigor in memories of yesteryears
As eerie pause encounters skeletons of bittersweet emotions.

Recalling first kiss of a young couple, quivering...Read More

Post-hippie and pre-disco kids were we,
not clearly fitting one sole category.
Girls dressed formal for our biggest dance.
No short-shorts or those fab bell-bottom pants.
Exploring options at each fashion store,
we girls picked gowns whose length was to the floor.

A blond bombshell beauty,
