Premium Member C'EST Si BON

First, I fill the tub.
Water must be just mildly warm.
I put on French music in the 
next room.
Magnolia bath gel and a thick jade sponge.

Thick, ivory robe ready on the hook.
Hair in a coral turban.
I sit down and soak~ ah.
That...Read More

in free verse poetry there is a wild freedom
one can write like a bird flying in the sky
metaphors can dance like leaves drifting in the wind
similes can twirl, swirl, and whirl . . .

The world speaks in mournful tone,
The times keeps me up on it's own
Leading to crash but thought beckons,
The blueprint to pay for many tomorrows.
I swirl spoon in watery calamitious broth, tasteless,
Sit speechless, government powerless,
Aviation wingless, travel-ban endless,
Many activities motionless,

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

My Horse And Me

Down the verdant meandering valley
Draining the dregs of the fading dusk
Beyond the threshold of thick wild woods
My white stallion gallops in emerald prairie.

Gossamer gloss glazes the supple skin
Wisps of silk cloud swirl on the satin mane
Tossing in swinging waves of...Read More

Premium Member Sunday is the Day of Rest
So much work to be completed
Sunday laze
I am unhurried
Calm, unconcerned
I have completed one task.

Today is my day of rest.
I will honor it as such.
Honoring my Lord’s edict.
Through prayer, meditation and delightfulness.
I repose on my porch, unhurried.

A plastic bag takes off...Read More

Premium Member DIY for a Carousel of Dreams
Covid 19 leaves restless kiddies with parents’ imagination at home

So why not create fantasy in the lounge for a resilient pleasure dome

darkness ...
it is closing its careless bite
upon ALL of us
it knows no favor, no age, no disposition
fear and all its dim shadows

it casts an arrogant shade that we have...Read More

There are so many me’s inside my head,
there is no room for flight or fancy.
The souls swirl around leaving imagination an outcast.

Premium Member Black Holds Her Essence Back
Twirling in cottons of pinks yellows and blue
Prom red satin slides in, so shiny and new
Followed by linen, stark, stiff and tannish white
Black holds her essence back, saving herself for the night

Whirling in wonder the materials swirl
Laughing at the closets...Read More

Premium Member High School Dance DWM
It was a Friday,
and I was excited
about the High School Dance that night.

I wore a yellow chiffon dress up to my knees
with black Patton leather pumps.

Students stood, jumping, and dancing wall-to-wall.
Partners were no longer needed to join in the on...Read More

Slow dance with me
As my emotions
Take a hold of me
Taking me to a
New level on 
The dance floor
As my body slowly
Moves to the 
Rhythm of the music
Come salsa with me
As the quick movements
Of my hips
Swirl from side to side
And the...Read More

Love In The Wind

"Dance with me within the wind, then just let me love you" - Orania Hamilton.

Your flushing face in the wind,
ebon hair defiant, flutters unbridled.
Some swirl squally, thread the gale,
the forehead lattice captures my yearning,
lest like cloud it drifts away.

The stag was astounded by fox’s nerve.
Not realizing this was no ordinary fox.
You are going to the city? Why? Stag asked.
To peer in and peer out, to unify my flocks.

This is when Stag realized why fox was called Cosmos.

Sometimes I have a Stephen King mind,
always searching for a good tale to weave,
filled with macabre and mysterious thought,
clearing my cobwebs of all the fraught.

Sometimes I have a Stephen King mind,

as my fingers of...Read More

So, where do we go from here?  
The scattered toys are picked up.  The broken dreams disposed of.
The tattered remnants of yesterday’s play carelessly litter the lawn.
