Premium Member Love Poetry
I rarely write love poetry,
I simply lack the aptitude,
I avoid tackling the emotional,
Writing about love seems
An invasion of privacy,
Especially that of my own.

The poetry books I own
All include some love poetry,
In which an obvious aptitude
Delicately conveys the emotional
So that the...Read More

Premium Member The Monk's Walk


They walk in single file beside the river.
Five young men heads newly shaved,
their saffron robes washed so frequently
that orange has turned a saffron yellow,
a yellow seen in temple lamps at dusk.

They gather under a broad Tamarind tree
for shade and rest.

Wood burning stove weather
While outside nor'easter
howls like banshees
vents temperature dips
into low double digits
fire breathing friendly
dragon (cue Barney

purple dinosaur)
crackling hearth,
yours truly snuggling
close proximity warming,
thawing, quelling...
cockles and muscles

atavistic visitations hover
brushes within subconscious
purring, mew zing catacombs
kickstarting, harkening,
dawning... Homo sapiens
lion eye zing forebears

dormant memories thaw
predators vastly outnumbered

Premium Member ocean of motion
Clear blue sky and cool winds blow
waves pouring in and splashing high
toppling over  jetted rocks
ripples mellow out and gently flow 

Gulls soaring low, cormorants streaming by
distant sail boat tackling the rising tides
white caps roll, fast and furious
tangling seaweed strewn...Read More

THE UPS AND DOWN
Let me be
The person I was born to be
The person I want to be
The person I am meant to be

Let me be me,me,me
Exercising my intelligence
Formulating my goals
Proceeding with my dreams

Let me go
Tackling those obstacles
Embracing those challenges

CONFESSIONAL

I confess to an addiction 
If I’m honest, no it’s two
On the scale of dire affliction 
They don’t count for much ado

So I’ll say it, take the risk 
While confessional I’m tackling
It is salt and vinegar crisps
With a large side...Read More

Clueless Mastermind
Streams flow from my eyes
My mouth dry as the desert
A heavy boulder sits on my chest
My heart chasing the wayward wind
A pit forming in my stomach
Laden feet
My head riding the vortex
Conflicting thoughts rumble through my mind
Confusion prevails.
Like the Ancient Oak

Unraveling Life
We set up our bivouac of life
by the world's battlefield,
It befits us then 
that we live not in peace
nor die free from strife.

There’s got to be more to life 
than work, marriage and kids,
Life can’t be there just for tackling...Read More

If You Only Knew
If you knew the danger you were in you wouldn't hesitate
In not realizing the effects of sin you sit around and wait
Doing nothing to prepare everything else taking precedence
Oh! But the cost of being unaware is so completely immense

Human
Dark nights and bright blue mornings
My Back against the wall,
Foot on the moon
Arm strong: I'm carrying the world,

The youth taking over!

From fighting for skin color to...Read More

On Pride A Fat Cat Sat
Get not bitter
If an insidious issue under consideration you flatter
Cos a situation abnormal can get better

If only your blinkered eyes can see
Life ain’t all about gung-ho glee
Cos common sense can make you free

To roam free of matters you overblow
In circumstances...Read More

Premium Member Once More Dear Friends
Come sail with me once more dear friends, to ply the winds to comply.
To hoist the sails, pull on the sheets, to steer the yacht driving through waves.
Together, we make a great team, tackling and taming riled wild seas.

A Twist In A Damsel's Mist
Three cheers for the damsel
Who despite numerous reverses
Smiles for souls who fell
In love upon assimilating vivid verses

Which struck cores and stores of emotions
Moved to mercy bereft of ecstasy 
Stimulating motions and demotions
Sometimes driven to a fallacy

Curiosity, Not Reason, Leads to Wisdom

“No! Michael! It’s hot,” my mother would say

But I would always see for myself, getting my way

A tiny finger to red-hot burner of the stove

My curiosity against reason always would rove

This same mother would rock me to sleep gently

Tackling Number 3
I felt so haggard that night
and you asked me such an odd question
“mom, do you ever wonder
what you really look like?”
You told me that you think about that a lot
what you look like
if you were looking at yourself.
You were watching...Read More

Be Yourself
Looking into the crystal mirror
The girl sees a hollow form in front of her
She is beautiful, with nothing out of place
But is filled with nothing

Eyes of glass blink in union
They are lifeless
Filled with no emotion
Looking at each other they gasp...Read More

Skipping Past Daisies
Skipping past daisies

 twirling with ease

smiling at nature

and all that does please

tackling life's worries

with a heart full of grace

answering God's calling

with an angelic face

bathing in jasmine

aged like fine wine

a scent of forever

from beginning of time

rich red cherry blossoms

Savannah Night

There was an uneasy feeling that night on the savannah.
The creatures were jumpy as they huddled and grazed.
Startling at each new sound, one stamps its foot and
the vast herd flees, from what they are unsure.

The lions creep through the...Read More

Variety
How many stupid do you need?
We’ve an entire variety of breed.

All of them are highly qualified.
In all absurd they’re specialized.

You can get from them only criticism.
Or else rules and manners of modernism.

Well trained in tackling the flock.
And in handling the...Read More
