When I was young and fate was kind
No mocking tongue nor state of mind
Betrayed my room, my welcome bed
My refuge in the years ahead
Where nothing but the night is black
And black is never dark for lack
Of something bright or...Read More

I had a wish, wish to make a bluish fish, fish dish

He ignored the warning signs and moved carefully forward and backward

In the rocking chair of swept memories and went for a wild white knuckle ride 

Swayed but not faltering although he swung like a junky on amphetamine pills

Soaked in recollections...Read More

"Beyond lychgate lies future death" she says,
cucumbered eyes slid back under cauliflower sky,
brimming smithereens of harkening demons.

Been in saddle some time since torchlight began,
a child's silent castle ago. Chaos-times cut alleyways
through rose-lettered circles, reads trashy maid.

The journey fell sword north...Read More

Your shiny streets, subdued footsteps, silent, snow -softened cars.
Plumply-padded pavements. Shuddering snow slips from the roof slopes above. 
Words softly spoken – hushed - heated words make slush. 
People stay indoors, behind the swish of a thermal shutter. 
Lots of...Read More

When the Universe created the Universe and allowed for challenge 

It was quite open to change and the preponderance of ageing times

Youth is not a crime and the respect for seniority has to be earned

Oh my Lord let there be...Read More

 Little words of value blown to smithereens 
 I am a smidge of worry with a touch of green 
 I spent the night picking out E's and O's 
 now my tummy is a gurgling with woes

What a memory trickling down my limbic system
Pure deep emotion released from a firing brain

	Neurons transmitted untainted joy 

A night dive at Stackpole Quay in Pembrokeshire
Thick wet suit in cold waters weights on the belt
No load on my shoulders apart...Read More

December is here
December first is finally here,
With joyful songs and holiday cheer!
We all have fun with our family and friends,
The fun time, will never end!

As I walk by and watch the Christmas tree glow!

Premium Member Swishing Leaves

Leaves fell like confetti, upon an autumn bride

Swirling in their multitudes, across the countryside.

Along the path I walked they lay, some were ankle deep

I took such childish pleasure, as I swished them with my feet.

The wind was fairly blowing, branches...Read More

The Flame of the Flamenco

Ruby was the flame of the Flamenco,
a tavern on the docks of Costa del Sol.
Men were entranced by her fiery dancing
as she gave off flashes of red and gold.

Ruby called one man to dance with her.

This house breathes and I'm not at all sure what that means.

But she smiled, and the world and my wonder along with it, stopped. Her hair swished around when she laughed for miles over and on the top of this...Read More

Viva Catalonia

his heraldic crest

I woke up one morning
and what did I see
a face in the mirror which wasn't me,
my nose was a ski slope 
as long as a piece of rope,
staring back at me were scary bulging eyes 
big and round as pizza...Read More

Premium Member Do Not Flatter Me
Please, do not try to flatter me
with those capricious words you speak,
perspicuous but inurbane...
their undercurrent, quite oblique.

They may seem kind to you for sure;
beneath, though sweet, alienate
with mean, malignant metaphors
that make the sugar dissipate.

I will not be your sought scapegoat

Poetry River run free
Quietness upon the face,
Silence and loneliness,
Land before time,
Before living things existed, 
Sadness as my waters ran through the earth,
Was my voice the only thing to be heard?
As I swelled and ebbed, 
Swished back and forth, 
Was I alone as I...Read More

“Forget it” he said, in the 
Half-light of the motel

The shadows from the blinds
Hit her shape as she glided
Across the floor

Is that ghostly shape “
She said, weeping

A warm overwhelming sensation grabbed at me As she emerged from behind the gate of her wall fence. Her eyes arched so invitingly, in my rain drenched clothes I felt a unique cold get hold of me.
