(Dedication: For my grandson Axel)

Hope wears a face with joy that swirls,
Apt touch of grace upon this world;

Poise in sure ease now frames clear lot,
Prime surge of peace blooms simple thought,

Yield to fond touch as joy greets cheer.
Blessings bring much...Read More

Lotus of the Nile
a name given to her.
Someone highly beautiful,
the crowd would run to see her.

 Astonished by her talent,
her movements were something new.
She was a rare form.
for her dance was not like the others.

 The Nile, her traveling road.
she spent her...Read More

Corona Corrodes Cohesion

Armed with abundance, infinity dictates
Charmed by assurance of blossoming supply
Fruitful hands encircle orchard's offering
Boughs bestow nourishment ripe flesh provides

Harrowing hunt, road collides with horizon
Narrowing options ominously herald hardship
Frantic hands grab due to doomsday prediction
Equity halted by maneuvers of manic narcisists

Swarmed...Read More

Cut Loose
    A shadowed calm in cool of night
       as silence swirls into a climb.

Why weep so easily in old age?
Vulnerable to memory that thins
No substance,
A sparse waterfall
             like draped silk on bony shoulders.

We need reminding about what to celebrate

Elegance falls from her electric expressions in art and poetry 
Beautiful bountiful boldness blossoms into a benthos aura
She swirls upon pearl clouds and diamond moonlight 
Sharing her starry soul which soothes all with soft sentiments

Swirls of blue, shots of green, 
Sprinkles of red, black and white,
Orbit about the burning centre,
That glows a brighter than bright,

And they all march as one, obeying some rule,
They chant a colourful sound,
These colours of free move with a love,...Read More

Premium Member When I look at the sky

I know I can’t touch the sky
But many times, I dream to fly
Into the colored clouds that spread
In stripes and swirls, above my head
Bountiful beauty, spread across blue
Seen through air between me and you
Flawless distant vision to my eye
Releasing all...Read More

Starry Night

A bluing sky
Currents flowing
Starfish swirls
Stirs heaven
Midst a dark purge
Tamed voices
Outcrops a town

Premium Member The Feather
A feather lost, gliding and drifting, it soars, 
in the mighty wind, it twirls and swirls, as if dancing;
once, the People owned all the wilderness,
they called it home, now they watch it be destroyed. 

There, high upon a sheer...Read More

Premium Member A Shining

A full-gorged moon opens its illumined glare.
Ghost lights flood the dens, burrows and nests
of all creatures,
a limpid dementia swirls blood-red clouds 
in predatory eyes.
 it enters bedrooms, cellars, attics
creeps beneath crawl-spaces.
It follows us into slumber
raises the bones of shipwrecked dreams,

Beneath the rubble of the Ocean
Where Panoply Swirls Decadent
Memories of Jupiter
Before the Flood-Omega
and, retro-spect, the turn of Archimedes

Poseidon in A Rage
Prophecies the Doom of the Titans
The Rush of the Nightengales 
In the Dark of Obsidian Night
In the Cool of the...Read More

Premium Member In Youth, Beauty That Sets Eager Hearts To Flutter
Nor stony tower, nor walls of beaten brass,
Nor airless dungeon, nor strong links of iron,
Can be retentive to the strength of spirit;
But life, being weary of these worldly bars,
Never lacks power to dismiss itself.

Dear, beloved, my mother,

Dancing with vigour; the dancer swirls
Sweat glistening, passions inside rose
Catching shadows as within skirt furls 
Around my heart as locks, you impose

Sweat glistening, passions inside rose
Fixation befalls; this, beleaguered soul  
Around my heart as locks, you impose

Constant urges.
Wrinkles in skin,
And in sheets.
Would I? Dare.
One step closer.
Static, constantly.
Quiet is loud.
I just want to help.
Going backwards.
The future constantly changes.
It swirls around in a mist of uncertainty.
Rescinding - my thoughts,
Burrowing into the soil of my mind....Read More

Untroubled within a Bubble
Circular little eyelet, on the end of a plastic stick,
Soapy membrane stretched across, not very thick,
Softly I blow, gradually inflates under pressure,
Out pops a universe, an instant piece of treasure.

One after the other, they levitate up and down,
Wind swirls slightly,...Read More

Premium Member INDIAN SUMMER

In a world
Of blues and greys
Streaked in swirls
Of sunlit shadows
Hints of gold
Tinge a brisk morning air
The cool stillness ruffled
Of a glassy lake
Not a sound it makes to wake
A sleepy drowsy nature
Gearing up to hibernate
All good things come to an end

Alone I sit and watch the snow
Its sound disturbs my sleeping cat
A soft, low hum so powerful
It dampens any care or woe.
Though I love the spring flowerful
Winter’s white charms can exceed that
A picturesque countryside chat
A fire, cocoa, a grand view

 all I do
 is pause, watch, see, listen, hear, feel, taste, touch and wonder.
Pausing to listen as the wind dances through the trees
 the clouds change from white to darkening grays
 the sun moves from east to west

“The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast,
knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever
just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself.
Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full...Read More
