Daylight Shouts On Market Street
Daylight swerves around the road
Shouting from corner to corner
Morning comes alive 
The traffic starts rolling
And people start flowing
I walk briskly up the road
And walk along Market Street
The layover vendors are just waking up
And some of them are escaping the night...Read More

My mind wears a secret alleyway, where thoughts lead to a threshold turning my dreams into memories; I tuck them away for safekeeping. Clandestine voices sow seeds of reveries that sweep into silent stars at dusk. Concealed and wrapped up...Read More

Comes a white doe, quaint sight, a wandering,
Murmurs, her head swerves about, hesitates,
A snow owl offering sky, pondering,
Nimbles green herbs with care, then elevates,

Hooves paves a path, my blue being surges clear,
Alert nose take air, head bent back, above,
Unaware, her...Read More

My presence had rested
beside you
At first it invoked an image before us
that we lived by,
but you discarded it...
I agreed,
we indulge nothing beyond who we were
We now turn all colours to black

When my eyes close they do
insanely seem
to imagine nothing
Astride of...Read More

Premium Member LINES LOST

Tough times tell
Words work well

Prize pure pain
See self slain

Note numb nerves
Set swift swerves

Lines lost late
Face fine fate

Poise prompts proof
Taste taut truth

Spice soft sell
Dance dream dwell

Be buzz bright
Rest reaps right

Calm choice crafts
Dig deep draft

I am going to kill you with my kindness
Moving forward I cuddled myself with my weakness and
Held my head high knowing the One Above is the Creator of human life!

Mike was ridin' shotgun,
I was sittin' on the hump.
Ledford's got the steering wheel,
There's the devil in our trunk.

Drivin' up to Sherkston
for a day of sun an' fun.
Doin' ninety miles an hour;
that's how Jerry liked to 'run'.

Set succinct seek
Meet moments meek

Juicy joy jumps
See succinct sums

Love lifts laughter
Stream sweet saunter

Bubbly beams breeze 
Sample sweet squeeze

Mind meeting mist
Glimpse gainful gist

Prize playful plot
Take timely thought

Hurl healing hurt
Dust dreamy dirt

See sensuous sway
Walk winding way

Breeze bouncing bourse
Craft clever cause

Note noisy nerves

Premium Member Your Lusty Kiss

Your lusty kiss launched me flesh high
and my mind passed blank towards bye.
When past love caused my heart to crack
I lived sure no saucy based smack
would land me in a throes-toned sigh.

Dreamy in blue jeans or black tie,
your brazen flirt...Read More

"Complex Of Swerves"

When one has a tender heart
And a heart real and true,
Being among fake, callous hearts,
Is a difficult thing to do.

When one has a giving heart
And so, gives generously,
Being among the predators,
Is a dangerous place to be.

When one has...Read More

Contiguious With Being Ambiguiou

While our car swerves and swerves,
You always like looking at my curves,
And when the wind had many gusts;
Kept blowing on my beautiful busts.

When my many poems I did compile,
None of them were ever worthwhile;
And even when I...Read More

Loch Ness

Nestled in rugged lap of Scottish highlands
A sprawling lake, the Loch Ness, swerves
In blue hills of old metamorphic rock bands
Lost glacier melt of the ice age it preserves.

The times of huge dinosaurs have long gone
There’s a rustic belief...Read More

Cautiously Caught My Eye
Cautiously Caught My Eye

This saying cautiously caught my eye;
Should never let a poor dead horse lie
Not a sound,
Made around;
Go ahead and bury him and then cry.

Graceful Gait
Gazing from a distance

Helplessly caught in visual and mental ecstasy

Beauty of astonishing proportions
Curves and swerves that tap my innermost emotions

Easy and willowy is how she moves

Exuding confidence and beauty with every step

My! Oh my!  Her body in motion is...Read More

I used to fancy that I was punctual. 
But on two occasions, I happened 
To be late—to my lectures.
I was a latecomer, in other words.
I promptly granted the organizers and the audience
The liberty to call me “the late Mr. So...Read More

Women in Black
She stood in a sexy black number
Looking for her prey
Red lips enticing the night
Along swerves a Mercedez
He blew her a kiss…  hop along…
Wow she thought it is pay day.

She was dressed in black coat 
Matching black hat and pumps

A promise
The first drop,
and each one after,
merge in a cluster of blissful storms 
dreams lie in wait
for every rising degree of fervour

sunshine ceases to blind compelling faith 
Smiles prosper like figs
And the unremitting truth is
rooted to the same spot

Artless passions...Read More

Seven For Chaos And Order--Home

Road rage at starlit dusk, curdling like grilled blood
When noise of a hurried pack swerves with screams;
The freeway transforms into a  jail of time-muggers
As I smell the  acrid odor of jumbled agitation.
Pine boughs rest  and sway along...Read More

The circle looks expectantly
Chairs shuffle their feet 
One speaks reluctantly
No eyes meet
I observe
My eyes shift and tic in unison
Chair swerves
Unvoluntarily rests upon
Someone's tense nerves
I tic and stutter
Source of endless laughter
My hands flutter
But I only leave after
Their awed voices

   Of worms, on the lurch.
