New Poems

I’m smart and lively running free 
My mane flutters behind my ears
Charming single-minded that’s me

My tail swishes sway's in the breeze
I feel my nostrils fill with air 
I must be careful not to sneeze

Existential fear abandoned for the sake of delusion

Nuclear freeze in her heart of alchemy’s shivers 

Veiled shadows dancing to the echo of silence

Intemperance sounding choral confusion of fate 

Rosemary scents a bunch of renegade petals 

On her journey of lone...Read More

Premium Member Frustrated Cat
I have a much-used bird feeder outside my window pane,
To entertain my cat Jefferson who growls at birds in vain!
Jeff sprawls upon the back of a couch chattering in frustration,
As birds just inches away cause him further consternation!

Hordes of finches...Read More

Premium Member Male Nude, Descending a Staircase

Ooh I’m glad I’m standing here
as down you come in not a stitch.
And how resplendent you appear -
a sausage salad on a dish.

Your bare feet beat upon the stairs
and off it goes. Tick-tock. Tick tock.
I’m caught quite frankly unawares
I’m hypnotised....Read More

shooting stars twinkle

sprinkling sparklers on the loose -

fading light expires

vows everlasting

impermanence tightly squeezed - 

woes’ storms intertwined

sunshine’s radiance

reflects warm silent repose -

disquieting loss

winter breeze swishes

seasoned kindness transgresses -

permafrost daggers

future corroded

skies disunited in pain-

new love on the rise

listen to my words

I saw the underground imaginary place of my generation destroyed
how I mourned the afterword.
Does the afterword make you shiver?
when I think of the animality, I foresee a natural necessity.
An animality is dishonorable, 
it’s colored it’s yellowish, however.

Mom shrieks as I tap like Ginger Rogers on the kitchen floor.
The raggedy mop with rigid brows swishes me out the door.
With squinty eyes, the traffic cop regent-points to the yard.

The Sounds of Silence
I’m in love with the silence. 
The thick layers appear 
They display as opaque
But they are easily pierced
A small adjustment 
Metal appliances click
The wood cringes
The cloth swishes
But still it envelops
All spaces it spreads to
Filling up the room 
Also In its...Read More

Tragedy Spun Into Greatness Strategy
Tarry not, worry not, hurry not
When fountains of fears
Overwhelm the dot and clot
Congealing in tears

That rain rivers
On your serene court
As hope shivers and quivers
At the prospect rot

Decomposes the serenity
For which you long
As sagacity and unity
Sound a garrulous gong

Whose register at...Read More

Melody Of Sadness
A saddening song swishes subtly in the bitter breeze, 

Mad mournful music meets me everywhere I move, 

Like a dolorous dirge drumming through the dark; 

Wistful winds wearily bring to mind stinging salt drops,  

All energy expended in trying...Read More

spirit grass

wind wanders through 
invisible bison graze
raise dust devils that flirt with larks
buzzing insects in the air
swirl dip rise into the sun

swishes almost whispers
play around ears 
not quite within range for words
ghosts less than clear
more than shadows, skydance

The Cat In The Hat Restaurant
Hungry for sure
We sat on our seats.
Hungry we were
For 'Cat In The Hat' eats.
Sally and I
And our fish on a date,
Wondering why
Such a long wait,wait,wait.
We were hungry and late
And the wait we did hate.

But after a while
Our waiter did appear,

Clean living
Nature abhors a vacuum.
It seems so do the kids.
Tumbleweeds roll through the room
On marks from soiled shoe skids.

You're home all day,  you have no job.
Maybe try stepping up.
I earn my way, I'm not a slob.
Don't let the clothes pile-up.

As the miles are too many to drive,

A tinge of gold revealed in sunset's blink
