Vrishchika Wind
You were 
neither a destroyer
nor a preserver 
like Shelley’s west wind.
You were
a native signal
to harvest the taro and tapioca.
You were
a swing for the shore, 
and my soul too.

You weren’t 
just a parching wind
for me.
My still leaves 
were energized 
by your...Read More

Love is like snow
Love is like a snow
Which never die and never grow
When it falls with the grace
It becomes part of that place

It can change its shape
Which is symbol of love and grace
During night it starts to glow
In summer it melts and flow.

Premium Member and I recall
 
and I recall 
dad's work shed to this day
the scent of wood and dust in the air
cobwebs in corners and crooks
sun flooding in through windows
his scarred and scored wooden work table
with the countless tin cans of nails and screws

CAUTIONS CONSCIOUSNESS
CAUTIONS CONSCIOUSNESS
Eminency requires us to be cautious
In our daily life activities we should be conscious
The birds swing and maintain their stretched wings while flying
And consciously fold the wings when landed or perching
Frequency of cautious acts
Breeds involuntary performance of such acts
Let...Read More

stranger spring
Last year’s leaves 
swing from lean gibbets,
twirl the wind. 
Spring expands 
in softened seeds, is tender 
in the cheatgrass,
pleads 
to the tentacles of trees, 
rises with the sweet sap.
It calls for blood 
and water in the den,
forgets the cold,
exhibits what

The Swing
The Swing

Under this canopy of green,
The arms of this swing gleam,
Rocking gently to and fro,
As the magic courses through,
This swing of life,
Rocking through pain and strife,
Like others has to too,
Come to a halt though,
It swings high and low,
As the winds...Read More

I wish to be a child again if only for a day
Happiness, joy and fun endless hours spent in play
Time to imagine all sorts of impossible things
Dinosaurs skipping and Hippopotami with wings
Parties, swing parks, carousels and fairs
Fairies, gnomes and goblins,...Read More

CHILDREN OF THE WINTER GARDEN

Snowdrop pokes her little face
 Up through the winter snows;
First she comes before the Crocus
 First she is to go.

Dainty Daphne dressed in white
 Such fragrance spreading from her flowers;
January’s child surely knows
 She lifts the...Read More

But I should have known 
she wasn’t through.
She snuggled close 
to whisper in my ear,
and said I have a message for you.
She sounded sexy and sultry 
and licked my ear.
Cuddling with me,
I had both hands full 
of my favorite parts...Read More

The colour of night sky
Swing, swing, swing 
Sitting on the wooden swing 
Underneath the night sky 
Head upward 
Something up there 
Exhilarated my eyes 
So they keep on searching for him 
Tonight 
The sky is a stage 
The clouds are the red curtains

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.

Premium Member Focus
Today's focus will be on the environment,
Particularly the usage of plastic,
Which is seriously to its detriment.
The situation is becoming drastic:
Plastic now dumped at an alarming rate,
Which can be expected to accelerate,
If our heads remain buried in the sand,
Leaving future generations...Read More

vulnerable shoulders scantily clad
bare of protecting pauldron
without his strong arms encompassing

chest underdressed
short of a shield
without his beating breastplate pressing

helmet unharnessed
mind recklessly unleased
without comforting thoughts of our melding

beaming brass unattached
sword unwielded for defense
strong arms to swing ~ missing

I’m not sure
I have the strength anymore
To be discovered

Stepping into the cold black lake of February
Clopping to work in frozen slop
Snow snarling at my ankles

Car coughing
Windshield gritting its white teeth

I wear a body double of fur curved
Like a polar beast...Read More
