Covid 19 What can it mean
Covid 19 what can it mean....
sweeping the World with a vengeance it seems...
A call to love one another caused by extremes....

Will we all come together to answer the Call...
bypassing deep divisions among us all...
refusing to let one another fall...

Missing Pair
Been one 
For a long time
Never have one

Grown up
Secretly needs one
Not just having it
Opportunity to cherish it
Something special

Despite ignoring it
Bury it deep inside my chest
It gets louder and louder

Every lovebirds come by
I can only dream
Smiling to myself
Imagining that for me

Glancing...Read More

Premium Member escape the darkness
in the darkness
one can't see the shadows
falling down around them
but can feel the chill
as it rises in the air
sweeping over them

with misty eyes
even these skies cry
as the clouds of fear
hide glimmers of hope

it's times like this
where the darkest hours reign

Temples of Kemet
 In these desert lands,
there are these ancient sites.
I've come to meet with the powerful ones.
the ones who will guide me.

 In this antique city,
where the granite pillars stand.
walls are carved with age-old stories,
remnants of color are still preserved.
Where I...Read More

Premium Member Panicking the Pandemic
 Deciphered deceptions that the summer brings,
As the cathedrals crumble for the corona Kings…
Units ubiquitous unleashed with sweeping strings,
Infectious isolation internal as the contagious clings…

The wounded wander amongst the Hellion hordes,
Where the good battle evil with spiritual swords…
Incurable innocence isolated...Read More

Corona and Social Distancing

Who made it intruded is still a mystery, yet it’s fate of the world
That life on earth is engulfed with thorns and bruises?

Sheer madness
Panic and chaos
Tainted with sadness
A wave of pestilence
Sweeping through our lands
The so called experts and Government
Don’t fully understand
Has now cursed the populous
Got out of hand
Excessive greed
Disregards common sense
And necessities of basic need
Panic buying
Leaves others without
And many dying

I'm fearful and shocked
Of the sudden outbreak 
Of a virus called Covid-19
That's sweeping into our
Cities and countries
It has the smell
Of death written
All over it, especially everyone
It comes in contact with
And sadly there is no cure
How can such a
Cruel virus escape...Read More

Oh corona, corona
Oh corona, corona
You deadly virus from China
Sweeping the world like little Hitler
Turning good, regular law abiders
Into panicky hand sanitizer stealers
Hoarders of toilet paper and pasta

You’re the top news headliner
Everyone’s like ‘corona, corona!’
You’ve invaded the White House in America
And infected the...Read More

Premium Member Murmerations
As thickening dusk
Subdues the tiring day
Flocks of starlings rest
Trilling and chattering in array
Upon tendril branches of trees
High up in the towering eves
As numbers increase
In readiness
Suddenly they alight as one 
The tress now bare as the eves
Of their feather laden leaves
And...Read More

Wind Swept Beauty.
Upon hilly brackish tor
Of a wild inhospitable
Windswept ambling moor
Woolly sheep chew cud and bleat
In the shadow of the over looking
Rugged towering sister mountains
A sprawling sweeping land
Of tawny browns and greens
And carpets of purple heather
Laid by God’s hand in...Read More

The Caldera
Deep and blue, fearful and enticing.
The eyes of beauty, falling in the looking,
lost in the depth, that reaches the soul.
Love is destiny, at a time and a place,
to meet, to offer the heart, to submit.
Looking deeply in the eyes of...Read More

A shallow slogan designed for the vote,
Has for far too long been accepted by

Serenity In the Fire
Comforting and cozy
   the fire soothes my soul.
While gently it's distracting
   the pain that I withhold.

Sweeping unsolved issues
   into closets in my mind.
But, also reassuring
   they're close enough to find.

"We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are."
Anais Nin.

Anais Nin's pithy observation,
Though not devoid of wit,
Cannot be termed a faultless declaration,
And I hereby submit,
For the devilment of it,
That the statement is rather too sweeping,
A generalisation...Read More

lazy days
Lying in a lush and verdant meadow
Nature’s sweet aromas start to set me free.
Honeybees are pollinating clover
Mellow sounds of summer sweeping over me.
