A Birds Quarrel

Along comes another, swish down with the swipe of his wing,
She fly’s quickly with a vengeance, swish through the branches,
To another tree she goes, mating season has come,
He sits there with all of his...Read More

This House
THIS HOUSE

This house is always open,
But thieves had best beware.
Because this house is guarded,
By constant daily prayer.

We offer you our bathroom,
To shave and clean up in.
But don't take nothin' from this house,
'Cause stealing is a sin.

The food is to be...Read More

Planet Earth,
Their New Year held no mirth,
All they could think was revenge,

Premium Member earth can't contain our love
a deep aria of cobalt hue
encompasses us in the sky-
our fate started so long ago;
a place where forever lasts forever,
where stardust spreads over
my barren shoulders and he
kisses me like youth

below the grey glaze
shadow of the moon,
he lifts me –
HIGHER-
and
HIGHER

Premium Member A Simpler Life
In days of old
When Knights were bold
And wonder filled the sky;
A world more simple, 
Eyes that would twinkle
As life passed slowly by and by.

Food that was real,
Few that would steal,
Neighbors knew each other’s name;
Faith that was strong,
Wrong was just wrong,

CATastrophe
Billy was a burglar, of the feline type,
he'd pussyfoot around at night to see what he could swipe.
But one day he felt the pinch, if you'll excuse the pun,
for the local coppers had a blitz on crime begun.

Would garner a creature so starved for affection.

Premium Member Grundlebean and the Squadgiboo Bear
In the crook of a rock,
in the turn of a stream,
in a fright of a forest,
lived old Grundlebean.
His door had a four,
and his face had a frown,
because NOBODY liked
having Grundle around -
not even the bats
or r-rattling rats
who lived in the...Read More

She also cares for me,
Who is she?

Tell me why?

I want to fly with her.

Laughing, only to hide the tears,

Evolution in Reverse
Here marks the age
Of evolution in reverse
Though finally escaping 
The clutches of the church

The craze of social media
Has us on our knees
With the touch of a thumb 
We’ve acquired all our needs

We need not for hunting
Exploring or chasing
We swipe and...Read More

Premium Member Vampire Take heed of What You Sow
He drank, thirsting for her;
with stygian lips pressed to her neck,
She was exsanguinated.

The squalid night-beast, left her lifeless body, 
behind an alley dumpster. 
No moonlight betrayed the remnants,
of his latest meal.
Any slight remorse, that he felt,
was obliterated by the metal-sweet...Read More

Contest on my Home country by Brahne Bailey

Being an Ozzie is great,
Everyone calls Everyone Mate.
Too laid back for a heated debate,

We walk around wearing our thongs,
Like it’s a style of dress that belongs.
