Passing Time with Rhyme
snow-covered winter came calling
lightning thundered split trees are falling
gurgling streams spread spring’s overflow
bringing new life to all that grow

flowers dressed in red, white and blue
articulate how do you do
pastel hues are too many to mention
splendor shouts at this glory convention

Nature in Rapture

the fallen, brown, dead and decaying; 
covering mats nature’s mother been laying
arteries swollen by spring’s overflow 
will funnel life to all that must grow

flowers in hues of reds, whites and blues
articulate how do you do
brilliant tones too many to mention

If I died today March 2nd, 2020...?

No matter unfulfilled dreams never came true,
nevertheless yours truly doth gladly bid adieu,
where repurposed afterlife (mine) atomic brew
reconfigured, reconstituted, and reconsolidated
out maws of madness, no matter any blues clue

    Cell Phone Tango

Without electronic devices,
Oh, my~ how could we live?
Without a face, ghostly in color,
whilst we ignore other humans
as some kind of boring disorder.

People laughed when I told them
there really is a fork.
To which you attach...Read More

Swimming Moves
We used to go swimming with our parents and children at the Fitness Institute,
The facilities were enhanced, we had showers and a make-up room.

There was a swimming pool and a tennis court, 
After  your swim, you could sun yourself...Read More

Premium Member Mermaids Of Astoria

The wayward swimmers of the mega-rich,
Their, intrepid pools stretch longer than homes,
Filled with oddities compelled to their niche,

A place can be found in a watered ditch,
Perchance a pool, right place, and right time zone,
The wayward swimmers of the mega-rich,

The End of August
As August approaches its end
It’s harder for us to pretend
That the summer’s still here
For it seems pretty clear
That to autumn our thoughts do transcend.

All the stores and the sites advertise
Sales on clothes and, of course, school supplies.
Camps have shuttered their...Read More

"Blue Rivers"

Blue rivers 
run through a 
pale valley
branches merge
to an estuary
where life 

All in vain
Dreams are washed away

The Monster satisfied
is fed.

Open mouthed
“It” sits 
where it all ends 
and waits 
for the next
flood tide
to begin
to drown 
it’s next 
Blue River

Rain will...Read More

Premium Member A Sunset Serenade -----
Oblivious of the time and the few swimmers around me,
I lay sprawled on the soft sand underneath a colored umbrella,
Enjoying the gentle peace and calm of the evening dying sunset.

My friend brought me a large cocktail, much appreciated,
As the sweet...Read More

It was nothing to do with me
It was nothing to do with me,
I wasn't there, and, besides...
Who could?

They all urge you on,
as if it is just the cold sea
  you're plunging in,
a bit of a shock.. but then it's OK.

Plunging in, swimming about, finding...

seaweed stuck on sand 
seagulls seeking small shellfish
shirtless swimmers splash 

crawling crabs, claws clasped 
clams closed, coral chips and conch

Thankful For Living
I see the grass growing above my feet, 
The erratic flying of the humming bee,
A profusion of flowers comely and sweet, 
I am thankful for what I hear and see.

Ice-cream and cold drinks selling...Read More

Revenue of Grief
Flowers bloom to the fullest,
Garden of colours and aroma;
Fresh turf covering at full stretch,
A pleasant place for my mama.

A heart that lacks blooming, like mine,
Colours shall fade and perfumes evaporated;
Like dried and wasted grass, that’s how I feel,
Mama’s death came...Read More
