Flattened, wet leaves lay on the ground
From an autumn that feels like a life time ago
So much has changed and sadness my heart has found
Trying to find balance amidst chaos and sorrow

Let Our Swords Clash
Let Our Swords Clash!

I found that life in my world is like fencing!
Tell me, World! 
What’s on the line?
Does the loser give in?
Ready or not? Let’s begin!

For all these years I finally realise,
It was me and the world
Joints now petrified

No tellin' how long coronavirus will keep me confined at home,
Since the guv'ner insists that I wash my hands and I'm not to roam!
It has upset my routine since its genesis in a place called Wuhan,
But it'll give me time...Read More

Coronavirus, COVID-19
Corona-virus, appeared a biggest ever demon,
swallowing humans everyday, few dozens.
Opened mouth as broad as the continents six.
Fails narrowing it, all the human tricks.

Frightened all, can't dare to be face to face. 
To hide self, everyone finds suitable place.
In the whole...Read More

Premium Member The Cowboy Legend
The Cowboy bloke of yesteryear
Would work in mud and dust
He would tackle any hardship
As long as it was just

Out on the range from dawn to dusk
Rarely saddle sore
His butt was tough as leather
From calluses he wore

Had the same thing on...Read More

My child's label

Parents: He’s fine but just on the spectrum
Slightly dyslexic, number blind and 
A tadge autistic and is allergic to
Snails, bees and litmus paper.
He needs a keyboard but can write
His handwriting is poor. We love
Him, but he doesn’t like fur or

Premium Member The River

Inside the water 
where they float or sway in their rusting roots
are horse tackle,
unhinged parts of eighteen wheelers,
a girl on a tricycle, her bones still cycling in the drifting meld
circle squirrel and possum pelts,
The sludge of a dredging flow
tows...Read More

Beneath the city the river fishing is good.

I roam with tackle and pole below those wiggling tapeworms
Wound around the cement underbelly of bridges
Devouring the guts of the city’s glamour
Down here where shadows are long as green moss
And the voices of...Read More

Grief Grips Grim

Grief grips me grim with her handcuffs invisible,
Chief Cop she may be as she stuffs me in her remand,
Brief barely is her self-proclaimed band of friendship,
Relief absent I am stranded, I can’t anymore stand.

Fired up to free from her shackles...Read More

Is regret

Someone asked whether regret is a strength or a weakness!
It's difficult to consider it as weakness or strength.
Regret is a choice, a way to assess in completeness
recognize what went wrong and to deliberate at length.

When It Struck 11
When it struck 11, I sighed in relief
When it struck 11, I haven't felt grief
The time kept ticking on and it wasn't brief
And I'm so… patiently shaking like a leaf
Vigorously feeling vital everyday...
Every minute...every second...come what may
Immensely feeling somewhat manic...Read More

I Pray For This Girl
Oh yes! For the young girl
Who just landed on Mother Earth!
The one about to turn five with a smile
Or the other one who just turned nine
She is not only mine
My Mother’s, Grandmother’s
Neighbour’s or friend’s daughter
She is like a flower
Very fragile,...Read More

Premium Member A Fair Go
Take a good long look back, girls,
Through the history of humankind,
It is easy enough to see
What is now obvious to find.

Rake up "Man's inhumanity to Man," dears,
And particularly, to "Woman",
It is little more than a hundred years
Since real improvements began.

The healer

Do you remember the night when?
The floodlight came on as we sat by the riverside?
You said you loved me and I quickly said ditto,
A joke you didn’t appreciate.
 Mosquitoes flew like silent angles through air
In the mimosa night and...Read More

This day
It’s a caliginous hour.
All this universe of verse 
Portrays random snippets of you,
It does not spell out the alphabet of reality,
As I utter, compliment, 
And offer rivers of lexical jewels
You’d find tender in the ode of fatherly love,
Under this nimbostratus...Read More

There once was a young lass 
Who wanted some quick cash, 
And one Sunday she did pray at mass 
With God’s answer was ‘this surely will pass’.

Premium Member The meaning of life
I am not worthy to tackle
this subject. To battle
‘The meaning of life’.
A culmination of hope and
a persistence to overcome
that which we cannot face.
With no prior warning
we are thrust into life. No understanding 
of that by which we are bound.
We often...Read More

Loving you is easy- for you're so gentle and warm.
You put on the Battle Armor- and chase away the storm.
You listen to my problems- as on your shoulder I cry.
You have courage and integrity- you choose not to lie!

They hunted with valor and hope
They proceeded with a dose of good Knightly sass
They chased it with tackle and rope
