Premium Member To Have and To Hold
Your beauty eloquently shines,
with effervescent hue.
An ushered in new day,
additional memories to accrue.

Moments swelled from passion,
can certainly overwhelm.
Always assuring my attention,
in a perfect magical realm.

Fairer beauty nowhere to be found,
witnessed by my own two eyes.
A constant and veracious attraction,
invariably never...Read More

Life Comes and Goes
Down the street as I was drifting with the city's human tide
It occurred that perhaps a million were in this streaming flow
And I..I knew not one and cared not that I was here alone
For there were things to do and...Read More

On the slate sky scattered the tinge of twilight glow,
unperceived at the ashen edge of the heaving horizon
the swelled clumps of looming storm clouds were born.

The streaming squall of upwelled turmoil began to blow,

a negative aura 
exudes from within 
a standoffish shell 
of arrogance 
floating away 
on a swelled headed 
hot air balloon ride 
into the conceited skies

Hen's Wings
A pair of blue wings is hovering
against the inky black covering
within ‘Little Fox’ constellation
of Vulpecula designation,

portrayed with stipple sidereal
in Hubble image ethereal,
‘Hen two dash four three seven’ labeled.
A hen with fox is Aesop fabled,

except it was really a crow

The senselessness of war
The senselessness of war

As you waved your goodbyes.
Tears swelled up in my eyes.
As I feared what  all parents dread.

You left full of life.
Leaving a son and a wife. 
And you ended up getting yourself dead.

Now the battle is won....Read More

Hi, hey, hello

I Kept On Walking
Of an august-like, autumn day:

I kept on walking
Bespoke in dust-coated
Check jacket,
Check pants,
Polo-neck jersey ...
I rambled destinationless:
A la les sapeur - 
The gods,
The directors,
Were focusing on me - 
Me the starring only

I kept on walking
In all my sartorial glory, consciously
Deadened unto...Read More

Premium Member The Boy Beyond

Precocious boy, yon ere the age of twelve,
Parades vast knowledge, complexity swelled,
Our simplistic share was well understood,
Kept back of minds, preserves naive childhood.

Green imparts years cherished adolescence,
Bottled, we heed, coupled coalescence,
Errant appendages spark normal steps,
Blessed gifted faculties, fellow class frets....Read More

Veterans Day

We were happy
With the war over.
Our eyes swelled tears 
When the guns ceased fire.

Those long years
Of suffering ended;
Lives shattered
Always wondering.

And on that day
Soldiers marching,
Rifles shouldered, arms swinging,
People hugging and kissing.

My father had come home
And my mother said,
‘Let us pray,

First Love And A Wee Little Man
It started out as just a lark
Just a flirtation in the park
But suddenly we'd lit a spark
Enough to make the doggies bark
We were like runners on their mark
And on a search for that lost ark
We'd not be hampered by the...Read More

Premium Member Magic Worlds
Old books of tasty treasures
give my life, so much pleasure.
Building worlds so bright and deep,
help me to read myself to sleep.

I’ve sailed with pirates, the seven seas;
cooked from books, with smashing recipes.
Dante’s, “Inferno”, took me to Hades;
was present when knights,...Read More

1095 Days
I was 18 when we met.

As we introduced ourselves.

It didn't take me long to want you.
I watched as you sang, dancing around the bar.
And I knew you were too good for me.

My post-mortem may bear the stroke of your hand, in your lap,
On your knees with a single tear so priceless

Self-image delayed my usage but my need has swelled
Unsteadiness is the issue
So to avoid a miscue
Health is more important than image, who gives a hell

Leaving my feet stranded in two pickle jars

of calm clean water.

a mansion of memories
