empty street - a covid-19 poem

In the middle of the empty street,
fretfulness and despair prevails.
The search for cure to save lives…
In grocery stores and pharmacies…
Still it is nowhere to be found.

A furious disease!
Impeccable fear…
In a blink of an eye,
It might stand next to me.

As deadly...Read More

Temptation, temptation, that candied shadowed sin.
Always teasing to be pleasing those desires within.
Pecking away at the walls of your fortitude's tower.
Hoping to steal your inner strengths power.

Lurking somewhere within your minds shade.
It looks for a moment of weakness's parade.

Different peoples infest.

Aimless swoops pluck.

Yellow swoops prowl.

Local societies loll.

Industrialized societies sally forth.

Grand impieties affront.

Horrid impieties affront don't wanna get up NOW!.

Terrestrial planets star earths closer to the sun.

Societies loiter wasting away at night.

All souls devour must get up earlier.

Wild, Beautiful, Little Things
Before the sun is fully up
Beside the window with my cup
I watch them come on silent wings
Those wild, beautiful, little things.
Each day they visit more and more
The feeder by my cabin door

Small clans of tiny Chickadees
Fluttering in by twos and...Read More

The unwilling seed of youth soon gone
Decaying society brought forth will be
Decomposing for all to gander
Vanity will wander together with brawn

Withering decline of the end to come
As beauty dies they harshly slander
Your fight will rage until the end
Reflection will rot...Read More

Barn owl 
silently swoops
spreading its wings, talons 
wide with striking impact snatching
its prey.

Your Eyes Are Like Magic Marbles

Your eyes are like magic marbles 
made of blue sky madness,
they draw my sharpest senses inward
rendering me helpless to your red devouring lips,
which pucker with a blinding instinctive intensity, 
as with silent snakes seeking a...Read More

Around bushes, trees and pathways, race two lively squirrels 
Scurrying speedily up and down playing games of tag together
Spreading its shaggy tail one would sit up tall by taking a halt
Prying off caps, happily chomps on healthy delicious acorns

Gleaming wager’s chart spells filmy odds
And tip triers to toss wee mites for more;
To forfeit modicums of ground for vaster 
Acres wider than the fabled Midas shore.

No curse greater than lost chances fair
Baked and gilded to enchant and deke, 
Verily...Read More

The day arrives
blaming no one.
The sky wipes its face -

Sparrows delight the earth.
A hawk swoops. Death dances.
Blood spills -
the living rejoice.

Under the busy sod
bones grow lighter,
an enriched soil
knits more grass.

The Seagull
The seagull flying free,
Swoops and soars.

Flying above the water,
A large wing span.

Flies in flocks,
Making sounds of conversation.

A regal bird with distinction,
Sounds of friendship and caring.

Our favorite companion,
While walking along the sandy beach.

The mystery of the seagull's friendship,
Always there as a...Read More

Tickly Prickly lying on her favorite branch
Can hear the large animals tromping through wet leaves
Does not concern her in the least
It is her autumn day nap, her autumn day nap

Tickly Prickly enjoying the sky,
On her back, looking toward God’s home

Ode to the Brighton Seagull
From lofty heights the seagull spies 
The weighted hands of eager guests 
He circles high and swoops down low 
stealing our supper as he goes ...

Meanwhile our hands now weightless feel 
our appetite remains at ill 
Perhaps some fleeting chance...Read More

Premium Member A Macabre Dance

A candle flame flickers in the dark

and a moth seduced by its light

falls into a trance

hypnotized as it swoops and dives

waltzing with the flame's

flittering tempo

dodging deadly kisses

life and death partnered

in a macabre dance

of desire and compulsion.

Oft I ponder the impulse to endure,

Start from egg bones that they are,
A part of their shelled home structure.

Outlast their plight, cross a beach,...Read More
