I'll Wait

I've  been feeling you ever since I've laid my eyes upon your lovely smile. 
Can of shy to make my approach
So I've decided that I'll wait.

Premium Member Beauty

Beauty exists in spite of the news
Majority of us are still hard-working dudes
The current scum at the top
Will be swiped with a mop
Wiped clean until finally we uproot

Premium Member It Was Me It Was You
Had to pick up the pieces
To mend a broken heart
So I put myself out there
Made a brand new start
Downloaded the app
Filled out my bio
Then selected "submit"
Said "here we go..."

It was me it was you
It was all of the above

Monet had his garden to paint,
Water lilies and a bridge so quaint

So many times he swiped his brush,
To capture the flowers and mistle thrush

Soothing pastels and budded greens,
So content, each day for him seemed

 Never tiring of his view,
Suggests it...Read More

Premium Member Randy Stole My Candy
I can’t stand my brother Randy, 
stole all my Halloween candy!
He said, “it’s all fine and dandy."
Guess I’ll just get more from Sandy!
I can’t even tell mom and dad, 
they could blame me for being bad!

Why would he play a...Read More

Premium Member So Many Dragons Come And Go
I’ve gone through several dragons; 
each one had to leave.
They’d discovered gifts and talents, 
to make their lives complete.

Musicians, sculptors, chefs and more; 
have trained within my home.
Once offered the chance to go, “Pro”; 
they went right out the door.

And...Read More

Premium Member Town Children

Town children chat on cell phones
under the allusion of instant fame and knowledge,
and yet, have never seen a starry sky,
fireflies flickering, pheasants in flight,
or a cocky rooster strut.
(Their minds catering exclusively 
to social media's insatiable appetite.)

Town children have no concept...Read More

Premium Member A Simple Game of Cat-and-Mouse
A cat crept out of hiding
   To ambush was she gliding
Toward a mouse, unaware
   Whose time he was a-biding

The tiny mouse did sniff the air
   His nostrils poking here and there
Pricked his head up...Read More

Runaway Wagon
Writing is like a runaway wagon...
I start with a destination in mind,
suddenly, thoughts topside take charge.
As my piece is posted, I withdraw the reins.
What I wrote is misinterpreted at will
by a reader who takes off on his own.
And the upshot...Read More

Premium Member Dead Fentanyl Cat
Dead little cat
In the middle lane of Washington Street
Skittish on its four paws like prints left in flour
Playful alive just an hour ago.

A man clumped to the curb is pinching his chubby chin
Between his thumb and index finger like a...Read More

A Thoroughly Modern Monster
A Thoroughly Modern Monster

It’s hard to be a monster
Living in a modern world.
I’ve only got claws, not fingers,
And can’t even unlock my phone…

An Apple is no longer something to munch
And Orange turned into Everything Everywhere.
I now can’t eat runners for...Read More

Blessed Anonymity Of Cyberspace
Ordinarily, a discriminatory

The Son of Tyrants, Part II
Reporters swarmed, the rabid jackals,
around my house they made a big crowd,
even harassed my poor old mother
to the point she could barely go out.

I growled loud at more than a few,
got one locked up for trespassing,
thankfully they found other nonsense

Not party, but character defines a president

Premium Member Save The Walnut: Inspired by The Overstory
There’s not a sound
In the woods
But for the lone, heavy
Of a walnut
From its tree
To the ground,
That the Earth
Is not hollow.

I’m startled by the thud, so thick, so full
It could be a bull
Stomping its hoof into a dry field,

But, the Earthy...Read More

A Paused Game

It was a rainy evening of May,
We were tired of sitting and,
Gazing at the downpour.
Through the gaps of my fingers,
The roaring thunder did crawl in.
Tear stained window panes,
Waved wide in the winds.
At out the windows far,
Lay our ground...Read More

She was blessed with one baby
Truly best part of her life
Shared custody with her ex

Simply took her breath away

Little darling with big heart

Was all it took to return
Her lil’ angel...Read More

Her name is life 2
I have been walking and walking 
All I see is poverty, desperation
Good folks selling their souls,
To put food on the table
While the notorious bunch
Contemplate in round tables,
Making sure the world is hell and heaven
The dirty modernization,
Swiped by demons that they...Read More

An Unrepentant Spitball Marksman

where yours truly fingered as scape goat,

     felt the stinging crack

Like a smiling tree
Down the street I found a smiling tree singing

To gain more music from its branches Enjoying blues of flowering mind
A bird singing from Unknown branch
Its voice was ringing to my heart

The Jig Is Up
A jobless Jack, the jerk dances a jig,
He juggles, smuggles jewels in backpacks,
in jigsaw puzzles and jowls from a pig.
Jawbreakers, jump ropes, jelly rolls and crack
jerked and jacked from joints on his pickup route.
Junk jingles and jangles, snuggling in sacks

Tinder :

Wedding Rings :

As I swiped right,
At the heart of new love.
At the new age escape,
For finding one another.

I read new stories,
Repeated many times before.
I read of many interests,
Common to all other.

In their sense of uniqueness,
I found a deep sense...Read More
