Premium Member Blessings of a Trumpian God
I remember several prayers
to invoke God's blessings on America
as a reminder of traditional political mindfulness?
Fundamental awareness of our economic investments
in win/win GoldenRule
positive social-psychological security.

No one "keeps"
or "makes"
this confederation of uniting states great,
unless we democratically cooperate with them
for mutually developing resonant...Read More

Much Like My Love: This Poem Has No Name
Who am I?
I have been wondering lately.
What taste do I leave in your mouth?
If the world was a rose-lit room and I left it — 
What feeling would sink in your chest? 
If you were to describe me to a...Read More

It was a symmetrical disorder
With hidden messages
In the spaces and gaps;
It was a sufficient affair,
A journey to the Light.

Journey to love,
Journey to work,
Trials to love,
Trials to work,
Abundance to poverty,
Trials to both work and love,
Journey to religion,
Journey to the Light.

Premium Member I am A Piece of Notebook Paper
I’m fresh 
Eager to Please
Fresh out of the grocery store shelves.
My beauty is sound. 
My lines are crisp.
The prettiest of blues.
I am symmetrical and smart.
I feel pride as a hand picks up a pen.

It tickles, but I...Read More

Stillness is the source where creativity does arise,
and shades of images become alive.
Melodious ripples taken form,
synchronizing the dark with visions to be born.
The frequency of desire establishes all meaning,
some images turn into the right feeling.
That mystic gentle finger playing the...Read More

She sorts me in parts
From one side to other.
I am symmetrical and asymmetrical.

I am closest to her brain
I swing around her freely.

I take a leap and kiss her cheeks
She tucks me back behind her ears
Adamantly, i repeat. She repeats.

Georgia O'Keefe
Gleaming petals billow like dancers spinning
engorged scarves, spilling deep pink-orange 
over stark curves, of hills sweeping down to
reach chasms, streaming symmetrical ardor
Gorges siphon gorgeous depths, blackening
into velvet obsidianite within a ‘Black Iris’! i
am aglow in my core of dark purple...Read More

It’s okay 
To close your eyes
To fall asleep 
To breath in deep

If inferno heat
Shall sway the wind
Or kill the flame 
May it boldly show itself 

A frog upon a log
Or a lily pad
An embroidered cushioning 
A round , flat...Read More

Her face is not symmetrical
Her left eye is slightly lower then her right
Canvassed smile lines show her age
Vague, sparse freckles adorn her face
Her character is as pure as the morning light
She stands in the hall like a fragile flame
Her sweet...Read More

Concerto D'amor
Concerto D'amor

Whenever I'm with you, 
Other things are amnesia. 
Every single moment with you, 
Suits decades in a catatonia. 

If you were Bermuda triangle, 
I'd often tread on the blast of shangri-la;
A picnic in the devil's triangle, 
Run-of-the-mill than millenniums...Read More

A poem for a competition is requested.
Who is the judge and what does s/he like?
Does political correctness circumscribe the contest?
Where shall the heart of upbeat poet strike?
Cancel that. The rhyming is old-fashioned.
Like speech the rhythm may not regulate.

Premium Member Suddenly Swans

Softly swaying within their mist,
Two swans appear falling in love…
An exquisite alluring full of grace,
A statuesque symmetrical sublime.

With a mesmeric moon to entice the endless night,
The surreal swans swim toward a flavourful floral…
As they illuminate the twilight realm under rapture,
A...Read More

He's tired,
So tired.
But he can't fall asleep.
He's slept too much.


He's so tired.
Everyday is the same as the last, symmetrical, parallel.
He's so sick of it.
It's all so predictable, too predictable.
Even for someone who is opposed to change.


He's exhausted.
Utterly exhausted.
The intense workload,...Read More

Premium Member Snow Dusted Lust

Oh, she had the lines
the pedigree
an aura of authenticity
shrouded in a symmetrical succulence
undulating and ululating curves
beckoning, beguiling, begging
for a glance, a whisper, a wink
deep almond eyes peering
into the souls of seekers
withering self reliant resistance
challenging the challengers
her sinewy sensuality
wafting across the...Read More

Innate with a fresh epicranium,
smooth like a marble!
Duration of her absolute head got short-lived
As if her middle name was trouble!
She wish she knew her ingle hue was purple
Too bad, no remembrance since her crown was redecorated!

An ordeal! At a tender...Read More

on a blue butterfly caught

Let Us Be Free
Let us be….

Premium Member O HEART

Tracing its symmetrical shape —
claustrophobic butterfly wings,
sensate sweep, with kisses my nape.
The flutter of my heartstrings sing.

Don’t break my wings of happiness,
this bellyache ballerina,
this lavender oil of sweetness,
and lover’s splash of katrina.

O pheromone pulse! Rapturous!
