The heavens haven’t changed for all history.
Bright Venus shimmering in the dark sky..
Does anyone on that shining planet know our problems?
Did even we know what they were?  -

Above the umbrellas of London Town
And beneath its 4pm skies,
Squashed by a window, I sat looking down
From a seat passing through Kensal Rise.

When a man with a phone stood up to get off
A woman and child stood too.
As he tackled...Read More

Happy Thanksgiving/

Please take this time to steer your thoughts
To a wretched land of lochs and glens.
Where a village was tasked and the people fraught
At the woe and sadness life could send.

With the Dragons gone and the Trolls dispersed
The villagers were still...Read More

Broken Wings

Needs to be addressed and answer known
By one and all to be at peace with oneself
To be freed from the diktat of the opposites.

Premium Member Gemini Soul Work
Gemini Soul Work is not easy
Not for the faint-hearted, or the rule-followers
Trial after trial
Many failures
Successfully eliminating
That which does not satisfy my Gemini self

I am a dancer, a dreamer, a reader, a writer, a poet, an artist.
Now sick of all that,...Read More

The voice of truth
Speaking truth through lies, in a society so guarded, 
Desperate proclamations simply disregarded,
covered by what is maleficent,
unheard and insignificant, 

within the draught a cocktail of emotion,
patronising rumours ignite the commotion,
Preconceptions mask the integrity of one’s word,
Misunderstandings faintly disperse, no-one’s truly...Read More

Inside The Mad Throes
Shackled by the fetters of deep desperation,
   Can't break it free, can't break it free,
My mind voice rises to the top of consternation,
   Can't let it be, can't let it be,

Tackled by my disturbed mind's waking,

A Gloomy Day
A gloomy day that’s wet and gray
Is one in which it’s nice to stay
At home to do the things you should
But wouldn’t, if the weather’s good.

So I did fine with gifts online
Because the sun refused to shine,
Then gave in to...Read More

Dirty Word
"I love you more than breakfast"
(I said on our first date)
You thought that I said "Brexit",
and punched me in the face!

You didn't really care.
But every time you heard the word,
it made your nostrils flare.

Ode to a cruciverbalist
There once was a fellow of Beccles abode
Who tackled a crossword wherever he rode.
But fully absorbed and in deep concentration
The poor chap would rarely alight at his station!

The Rebirth and Triumph of An Ace Apache Pilot
An Apache pilot once sought for a treasure
In booze, in fun
Sampling leisure and pleasure
Until an Apache chopper gun  

In his attentive ears whispered
Enjoining him to a wound-prone warfront to go
Where the gun the pilot pampered
Soon sadness and recklessness the...Read More

From opposite heads I hear crackles

A perfect day for sledding – 
Lots of snow, but not too cold.
Though Henry tackled hills, his sister
Wasn’t quite as bold.

So I pulled her sled behind me,
As she laughed, on level ground,
While Henry and his dad (my son)
Were bravely downward-bound.
