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
surrenders to...Read More

Premium Member The Donkeys

The Blackpool donkeys have given up
they have boarded jumbo jets
to be emotional support animals
for those lesser angels
that protect us wingless fliers. 

They have opted out.
Once they used to plod from Blackpool pier
half a mile up, half a mile back,
day after...Read More

Life with Celebrating Skating In It
Life with Celebrating Skating in It

Swishing sound,
All around;
Heart did pound. 

Looked toward,
Skating backward,
As I soared. 

Had been breeze,
Blowing through trees,
And a fast freeze.

When over pass;
Ice looked like glass;
Swam below bass.

Trip did end;
Return intend;
This poem send.

Leaving blood
Long thin finger reaches out
	clicking the switch to lightning's flow
Quantum jumps but observed not
	electrons fly setting photons free

thinnest glass contain's the flow
	phosphorus excited brightly glows
piercing brightly with cold beams
	illuminating that which cannot be seen

sterile white paper shedding not
	chemicals harsh life...Read More

I Shed a Portion of my Love to You
This pain and misery
Is making me come undone
Come and set me free
Before the arrival of the dawn

Sun is on its way here
Shed no tear 
Have no fear
Sun is on its way, dear
Shed no tear
Have no fear

Soon, turmoil comes and goes

An infant bawls
"In the fumes of the morning, so still
And no one would probe to how I must be
Feeling: crumbled or confounded with -
Such agitating darkness, my heart is frail,
Offended, but hardly will bring consolation. 
To wish the earth had swallowed me,...Read More

The wind dances across the land
with a sweep of gods blessed hand, 
as mother nature breathes in deep
and the trees and plants no longer sleep.
The forest’s majestic harmony
dances with the wind effortlessly, 
as autumn leaves do swirl around
to the melody...Read More

The ebb tide's 
     rhythmic swishing,
     as it leaves the soft, 
     sandy shoal,

     calms down the 
     simmering turmoil

Back to Back Birthdays
Yesterday the birthday girl,
Her rainbow tutu swishing,
Blew out (with brother's help) the candles 
Lit for birthday wishing.

From playground, train and parachute,
The 4 year olds were romping
Until the time for pizza came,
With juice and lots of chomping.

Today the celebration was
Just slightly...Read More

Sea Woes
I chartered a boat for sea fishing
Those waves just kept swelling and swishing
But when the boat stopped
My stomach had flopped
To be back on land I was wishing

To go swim in the sea is so sweet
Though I swim like I'm made...Read More

Premium Member Blub Blub Squish
One little jellyfish swam quite free
Swishing and gurgling capriciously
With the hiccups it seems
Propelling his jet streams
Back and forth simultaneously

Two tiny seahorses swam in place
Gawking at jellyfish face to face
One said "NO!" does he know
There's a shark at his toe
Ready to...Read More

Tell me
how did we get here 
at a swishing swapping party?
(The voices echo in emptiness) 

Bubbly cheerful and happy, naked and raw 
forever bachelors Larry and Harry, 
and the hot mom and the pool boy 
go flash dancing with dawn!...Read More

The swishing of a gentle breeze
is like music to the ear.
The howling of a stormy wind,
is a change that may bring fear.

The gentle rolling tide of sea
is a scene of peaceful calm.
But the roar of angry waves
can be heard with...Read More

In a kingdom full of ants
The splendid spider spidering
Deep into that darkness frogging
Death shall bring candlefish
It threw its ghost against the grubs

Cinderella Memories

Young, self-confident, the debutante
At the top of the golden railed staircase.
And, oh my, in a Cinderella mood!
The white full length strapless gown,
Satin buttoned gloves to her elbow,
And her partner, in tuxedo dressed,
Made her so proud and very blessed.

They descended...Read More

Urban Serenade
From my apartment, I can hear
The traffic swishing by,
Since honking horns and back-up beeps
Are not in short supply.

The shouts of athletes from the field
Where games are being played
Combine with children laughing
For an urban serenade.

Occasionally, dogs will bark
And trucks will idle...Read More

Introduced to sisters, aft, aft, aft.

Christmas Eve
Written: by Tom Wright

Car tires swishing through liquescent snow,
Store fronts adorned with a seasonal glow.
Christmas shoppers displaying a stressful scowl,
While on silent wings God’s Angels prowl;

The darkness seems very much awake,
Its bone chilling cold causing me to shake;
Floating on...Read More

Premium Member That, Winter Lunar Eclipse
In our backyard it is 14 degrees below zero
The air paralyzed like crystal glass
Laid flat on the metal slab of midnight,
Still, for its hammer autopsy.

My 18 year old son and I
Stand together amidst the dusted trees,
Staring straight up from here,...Read More

Fear of the Wild
Into the mossy woods I creep,
Where daylight flees and shadows leap.
Who knows what creatures slink and prowl,
Seen only by the hooting owl?

What’s this I hear? A swishing sound!
I freeze. I feel my heartbeat pound.
Although this seems a foolish stunt,
I must...Read More
