Premium Member EUREKA

Release the shelter of bare feet,
     rhinestones on big toes sparkle.
The tentacle-shine of sunwheat
     on the scrapyard-swig of river.

Like a sunflower, the mudlark
     shuts her eyes, complexion

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

Premium Member LIKE A CASTLE IN THE SAND
When our heart is filled with sorrow we find it hard to comprehend
why this happened in our life…why to our family or friends?

Yet it’s preposterous to think in a world where every living thing must die
that sorrow will overlook us...will...Read More

Premium Member Cycles of life
Times such as these test body soul and mind
So should our thoughts be pain and dark confined
Or loosed to concentrate on brighter things
Like furry puppies, flowers and girls on swings

In this bright morning sun as I roved out
Past village houses...Read More

Premium Member The Lady Down The Lane
The lass is lonely her life weary
Her stormy days restless and not easy,
She seeks of giving yet the weather dreary
Perceiving her world through bountiful eyes.

For sure therein her highest of mind
Yet for not of the common woes,
Gifts she loathes of...Read More

Premium Member The Age of Indolence
Being a household hero
and laying in my hammock,
is the only reason.
Summer in my backyard,
is my favorite season.
I love a soft warm southern breeze.
As I lay I the shade of Red dogwood trees...
The only Hurricane in the forecast,
is swirling with ice...Read More

Elliots Friend
You’ve got a lark on the brain
I’ve got a ghost in mine
Shape of the shadows of things to come
Half started is only half begun

In the distance
I hear a violin
Loosely based
On ragged knee
Shades of grey floating free
Insipid dreams are following me
Took...Read More

Premium Member Brokered Finale
In your parched desert land
As the pendulum swings
And your friends are all gone
Still you’re moving right along
Like it doesn’t mean a thing

In your parched desert land 
Thinking life’s unforgiving
Why not swallow your pride
Take an honest look inside
Join the land of...Read More

Alive
I can feel my blood,

Gushing through my veins,
I have two beating hearts,
One to lose and one that pounds,
At the door of my skin,
A caged vulture in the jungle of my ribs,
For it wants to be lost,
With a jar of ashes...Read More

Premium Member Failed Facade
An empty seltzer bottle hangs loosely in his hand
Dust covers the surrounding seats
The trapeze swings lazily in an errant breeze
Applauded by the rustling of fall tinged leaves.
A rusting train bleeds on forgotten tracks
Tattered banners beckon the past.
He stares into an...Read More

Premium Member My Mom Lets Me Roller Skate in the House
My mom lets me roller skate in the house, the new boy said.
Liar! I thought, but I kept it to myself.
She lets me paint murals on the walls of my room, he added.
You are a fibbing fool I thought, but...Read More

Premium Member Scales


Upstairs, the hammers of a piano
stomp through scales.

Unwilling fingers
prod at a well-known student piece.
A small tartan dog appears
wearing a coat of music,
a Scots theme.

Later I sit on the stoop
with a young girl.
We watch her Baby Grand
run up and down the...Read More

Premium Member Come Along Chick A Win
Here we are Chick-a-pooh, he yelled.
He is five and all of that plus a bowl of firecrackers.
I am Chick-a-pooh? I ask him.
It sounds less glorious than Grandma.
No, Chick-a-bee he says, smiling in full brightness.
He can call me anything he wants.

Champion of Woman's Rights
Woman,

She lassos her tongue around minds
creating space in these harden times
she licks at the wounds 
she culls up the glass
a virescent glow that forever will last

She holds off the pain
with a sacred of verse
charged up to the plus
we shall all...Read More

Looking at these photos, from not that long ago
I couldn’t help but wonder, where did that person go 
The images so full of life and smiles upon that face
When I looked into that mirror, I saw instead disgrace
Not that I...Read More

Premium Member Nacht Musik

My closed eyes have crashed
against an image;
I am a boat moored to a storm.
I keep a notebook on the nightstand,
pencil at hand – life-rafts for thoughts.

A flock of crows
all take off at once – they clatter – it’s musical;
1t’s an...Read More

Premium Member UNIVERSE SHUT DOWN-
In the darkness thrives 
Our inner most lives
But chances robs flies
Like winged tigerskarks

In the light swings chandeliers
Clinging dragons Shangri-La
Story pictures of passion fears
Purpose-driven  ceiling fans Mardi Gras

Darkness. dies
Light cries
No more passion rights
Dragon fly tiger shark drones
Universe shutdown 
Good night

The Call of A Church Bell
Three blocks away a church bell from my parish always calls
Pleading for my soul as the statues of Mary hang within the church's walls
I visualize the sculptured faces and count the clapper’s swings
I almost hear my name in the rhythm...Read More

You,my dad, and me
You, my Dad, And Me**

Giggles can be heard if I close my eyes and think,
A cute little girl, who still loves the colour pink.

Swings and roundabouts, running from one to the other,
Cheeks all a flush
Holding on tight, the hands of...Read More

From a Trailer Park in Keokuk
she came from the town of keokuk
  for what she did, she charged a buck 
    or sometimes two;
everyone said she was an evil gal,
but she changed my luck,
  that evil gal from keokuk!

Gathering buckets and spades the children laugh
Running back and forwards to the car, arms full
Each trip stacking more "important" beach equipment in the boot
All packed, I go inside to lock the house up
The door swings open again, someone needs the...Read More
