'je n'ai pas peur' she answered
though the question's intent
was to part more than just lips.

tugging her up the wrought iron spiral
'rooftops!' he cried, 'rooftops and red skies!'
they ran out onto the tar-paper flat

The visual sleek and deco style.
The carpets with their plush red pile.
The line of people out the door.
The queue that snaked around the floor.
The posters in their convex frames.
The "Coming Soon" and big star names.
The James Bond pose and action...Read More

Bittersweet, sorrowful, the air tonight tasted.
A gentle breeze swirled around and into me.
With each breath, I drank in the ambiance-
Fragrant, the autumn evening rushed me;
a smooth and potent red wine that
opened my disillusioned consciousness.
I surrendered my grief to the enchanted...Read More

Candles flicker like a lover's whisper,
tickling walls with whimsical illusions,
becoming purer, becoming crisper
with cinnamon swirled laughter fusions.

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

The Heart of Man
Here I am this afternoon thinking
Here I am this afternoon
Looking upon the courage of man

The questions keep coming 
And my spirit keeps growing
And I try my best not to pen this verse
But the pain keeps growing deeper
 And my spirits...Read More

Premium Member Those Who Saw Remembered
Frothy lavender chiffon swirled around the young beauty
Rustling in an almost silent delicate, dainty manner
Her essence so cosmic that the skies emulated her loveliness
The heavens opened up to envelope her into the landscape

Many who saw recognized spirituality and hope taking...Read More

Marietta was a happy little girl when she had lived at home
For the first six years, until she was stolen by a lonely crone.
The old woman’s food was strange at first, drinks all had foam.
But she had been here eighteen...Read More

Premium Member Supernova Bossa Nova
On a planet far beyond the galaxy Milky Way,
A dance like the bossa nova is done every day,
By numerous aliens around that far, exotic world,
The skies over which rainbow colors are swirled!

For a supernova dominates those extraneous skies,
Visible at late...Read More

it's been a rocky road
deliciously swirled 
in mouth
a delectable treat
quickly melting within the heat 

a bite teased, aimed to please
more than sex appealed
WHIPPED creamed 
caramel covered 


shimmering glass beads
spooned and licked clean
in the moonlight
a midnight dance
cumulating into the kitchen

Hands deep in my pockets, as the drums and cymbals rang

I felt you in the form of heat, deep...Read More

Love Letter From The Soul L

Is it enough, is it ever enough?

Soft bristled paint brushes
swirled about in a Van Gogh'd vision,
a strawberry sensation of love
strewn about her canvas
where I lie

in the vast of her bosom 
running my fingers through her hair 
naked we become one...Read More

Premium Member The Air I Inhale Deep

A new swirled lemon sunset furled. 
Dolphins leap, waves begin to creep 
Within footprints reach, graceful sweep.
Inward whirls round in my main world; 
This is the air I inhale deep. 

Gray fog ease gnarled trees wakeful lie; 
Loud falls rush...Read More

A Wondrous Place
A Wondrous Place
by Dylan Williamson

Started the day like any other,
Without a single care in the world
Went from one place to another
And my sight of the world swirled
‘Til no more, I could could only see stars
That twinkled and shined wondrously
And then...Read More

I paced between the old and new
along the rows where gray stones grow,
so careful not to tread upon
the freshly filled and seeded few.
Soft shadows slid across the lawn
where long ago a scythe would mow;
its ringing echoed down the row
like angels...Read More

Premium Member The Azure Blue
I closed tight my eyes
and in a trance I saw God;
he painted the sky!
Picking up a brush pure blue;
he swirled a slash of azure!

Hesitating long,
he dipped a brush rosy pink,
then, held a brush gold!
Gazing and pondering long,
God painted an orb...Read More

        Jasmine Tea and Poignancy

San Francisco and your soul's appeal.
Sitting in that Japanese Tea Garden.
You, whispering the readings of Lao Tzu.
Surrounded by the afternoon fog embracing 
Swans swirled, serenely.
Enchanting, endless, eucalyptus leaves,oh!

Breakfast With You
I am so grateful to live in our idyllic world,
waking each morning to French toast and brew.
In my cup, hazelnut creamer you've swirled

The frightful winter solstice approaches
with an opaque snow globe life entertwine.
Stars sprinkle early, romance encroaches
upon one headstrong to dread wintertime.

Power poles are overthrown by wind gusts
but the fireplace roars in competition.
Soon the living room temperature adjusts
to our own Norman Rockwell...Read More

In this beautiful dawn
On snow covered lawn

Swirled all around, above me in my sight

Whipped in with the passion fruit pavlova 
your love dangles me, caresses me 
so so delicately;
