Eight degrees currently
I am not concerned
feeding on my sausage corndog
wrapped in syrupy pancake batter
enjoying the warmth of my house
in no hurry to face the bitter winter day
probably a zillion calories in each nibble
do not care in the least

Premium Member LIFE AND DEATH
Life! Life! Sip wine with red lips.
Sigh with swiveling hips.
Gyration of your generation
With no sign of the cross veneration.

Dusk’s poison does color you sallow.
The first mate gouged off your halo.
The syrupy cabernet sticks in your throat.
Tonight like too many, he’s...Read More

Carnivore lay in wait like,
the feline among the sparrows.
“Come sip my nectar,
sweet syrupy elixir
it’s free for the taking,
a desirous sensation
to lull you to sleep”
sings Darlingtonia.

Within ruby pitcher,
tendril awaits,
a cavernous throat
dining on insects,
perhaps a frog or 
tree shrew
for the gullet
of unassuming...Read More

Premium Member Escape from the City
Mountains with vibrant floras
Led down to fruit laden orchards
In the verdant vales below.
I heard her then, a syrupy song
Of tender love and feats of old.
I stood beneath an apple tree
As her song wafted on the breeze,
Sliding in and around the...Read More

An odd thing in the sky 
An alien aircraft
Four webbed wings and two enormous 
compound eyes 
An elongated twig of a frame
A dragonfly 
Cold blooded
Outdating the dinosaur  and mankind 
A catcher of prey in midair
Butterfly, moth , fly

From the heart
A loving heart is the truest wisdom.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
A sun had risen,
Some bit of ice or mercury had melted.
One stormy wind had come
When a sigh came out from deep...Read More

The Sunhive

Glorious golden, wheaten, woven.
The Sunhive hangs, safe and secure, in the cradling arms of the old tree.

Full of syrupy sweetness, strength and wisdom of its small, mantled gold and black, dwellers.

At its warm soft womblike centre the bees, in safety...Read More

Premium Member My Dear Toast
My dear toast,
you have no need to leap
out of my hand in such a
cavalier fashion.

My plate is not a 
syrupy swimming pool; 
besides, there are two bites of you left;
why start screaming for 
something sweet now?

Pure Southern Girl
She's a pure Southern girl
Fried deep in hospitality 
Beautiful as a magnolia bloom
Standing tall in majesty

Talks with a sweet syrupy drawl
As cane sugar seeps from her pores
Cute as a button and that is not all
Picture perfect as the girl next...Read More

Menthol Breakdown

Warlords love the crack cackling sound ...
faint vapors smelled worldwide, 
when twine toking on the choking peace pipe

Lying lips huffing and puffing,
blowing smoke out the barrel rear end

Frontal sphincter holes
open and close ... 
Pre-negotiated spoils fanning the wind

Ode to a Persimmon
Ode to a Persimmon

Ripe, juicy, pulpy persimmon…
plump berry, mini orange sun. 
Syrupy sweet delicious delight
dangling golden in day’s bright light,
on blue-green leafy branch up high,
glossy under a summer sky.

Fleshy ambrosial enchantress,
nectar of Pomona, fruit goddess. 
Like a bee to honey...Read More

So Many Words
It’s nice to be cared for,
But sometimes it’s nicer to care.
And I did for you.

Not the way you said you did,
Using those words as a weapon against me,
Leaving with every piece of me.

How many times,
Did I feel like,
I have to...Read More

My tongue flaunts a fur-trimmed coat
of smoldering, ginger-scented rhinestones,
bragging and boasting
about how fashionable it chooses to be
when a Chime ventures
into the dank, cavernous throne room.
Gilded lions guard the gate,
cowering upon beholding those decadent,
syrupy, muted Chimes.
Zingy, flashy, and so trendy.
Glowing like...Read More

Back in the saddle, a familiar old tune
Ain't as agile as when I was a young buffoon
Drove girls squirrelly
With lingo so syrupy
Talk of the town even made old grannies swoon

Premium Member Languid Lapping
Languid waves lapping the shore, syrupy 
Lulling winds in hiatus, abeyant
Water clinging, sad to let go, sticky
Silence piercing, unnerving the gulls to mute, tranquillity
The wetness lingers on, soaking in, clammy
Water colors seemingly apt for painting such a scene, self portrait

Superfluous Activity

Dripping words so sugary,
light and fluffy insincerity
Laying it on drizzling thick
with a butter knife tongue
Caramel verbal plums ... yum-yum
You got red cherry cheeks,
dispensing vanilla frosting tasty speech
Blowing out mint bubblicious charm
when you start cinnamon chewing your gums

Merrily streaming good movies along,

barring sweetheart films with syrupy song,
only far away adventure excites,
a night panorama of grandest sights.
