CHILDREN OF THE WINTER GARDEN

Snowdrop pokes her little face
 Up through the winter snows;
First she comes before the Crocus
 First she is to go.

Dainty Daphne dressed in white
 Such fragrance spreading from her flowers;
January’s child surely knows
 She lifts the...Read More

Carousing in blue

From a faerie elf’s shoe
Add a little sweet toffee

The journey that changed me
Hardly anyone would I trust,
In my dark days, they are now past,
Altered me was the journey last,
And the change came rather too fast.

When the goal seemed to be too tough,
And I didn't have the strength enough,
To take on the forces...Read More

Laying her head on a stone she sang with a voice undulated with joy 
taking summer and me by surprise with a dolce voce all sweet n' high

giving up their sighs 
I watched her in...Read More

Bipolar

A yellowish day frolics with life, pleasantries errants the air, smiles
growing everywhere as man and beast are one with the leash, 
complacency occupies both time and space, the tenants,
of calmness and serenity moves in. That as being first

Whatever Weekend

Being humble common pathways ere,
I ought traveled nearby that lea,
Past the margin of my home there,
Where the daffodils fickle sprightly,

As I shared the natural trail lead,
General impressions befall o'er sunlit,
E'er lighthearted to the bird's melodies,
I travailed the character of...Read More

Lover in the Background

A day feels like mist of the wee hours,
once again I regale myself with
the buzz and the fuss
Coaxing my heart out of sulking 
for it is an utter melancholy
and slightly a jest
TO MISS THE WIND KEENLY FELT
BUT CANNOT BE GRASPED

Rock ribbed dogmatic secular humanist
Morality and self-fulfillment
attainable without belief in God
similarly yours truly
would figuratively crane
his credulity to ascertain Ichabod
mentioned in first Book of Samuel
as purported son of Phinehas,

I reject entire Biblical text,
and prefer to remain sacrilegious
eschewing faith no more,
(cuz doctrinaire versus
epistemological paradigm)
disagreeable, thus essentially

SHRINKS beware karma
I
here lie the remains of savior-imposters
lots of canned answers from textbooks
they knew: peace & reconciliation will be their ruin
so, divorce or hate, were prolonged a tad
shrinks who didn't show you peace and reconciliation ...
until you'd paid their bank loan first!

Fake smile
Laying in bed as sleep escapes me
Ignoring texts from my ex, someone please tell her she needs to replace me
Why do I still think about a dad that didn't even raise me? 
Depression had me hostage, I don't like the...Read More

Premium Member THE APPROVAL SEEKER





The woman fretted too much over this and then that.
Was her hair the correct color or was she perhaps a tad fat?

Did her neighbors really like her or was it all make-believe?
She whimpered softly and wiped a rivulet of tears...Read More

In a symbolic melee of defiance,
Rabid amber leaves scuff the callus stoned
Noon summons the arctic wind a tad honed
December’s mist embraced forced compliance,
Thought of you brother you free of science
Allied yourself to simply days unknown,
Hating maturity once we had grown

Premium Member There I Am Ageless

I peer at myself in the mirror.
My forehead is nice though I like it covered with bangs.
Lines there are to be expected,
and so too, the crows’ feet at my eyes.
At the base of my forehead are dark brown brows.
They are...Read More

bit little
late but
still in

being cut off 
and left

isolated thoughts
not supported by

any attack upon

Surely it had to be politically correct and she would claim her place

The Elusive Danny Kruger
Why Danny, so cute, but elusive
Ornamental and yet unobtrusive
Preferring to stay
At the end of the day
In locations a tad more exclusive

Why Danny, you see, while there's cheese
In the pond and the voters to please
You could pop in to town

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and in my house dress,
I was mixing and dicing. The place was a mess.
All my folks were expected at seven o’clock,
but at only three-thirty, I heard a loud knock.
Off I dashed to the door mumbling,...Read More

IN THE WILD 
( Re Post)

Early one morning, we begin our drive,
An awesome feeling as we arrive,
At our camp gate which, opens 
At six o’clock, 
Now we are in the African bush
Which, will unlock,
Moments that we have missed and
Remember from...Read More

Life Is Johnny Short
Life is too short
Life is too short, not to say love you
I’ve lived life beside you everyday
But I could never get enough of you
Life is short
So short
To stand by and hate your sister or brother
I don’t even get to see...Read More

Premium Member Sunrise


Sunrise,
slowly it sneaks,
first, it will take a peek
and if the coastline is all clear,
then just a tad more near the horizon
its yellow will show, it will glow,
a strong push from the range,
then it will be
sunrise.

Premium Member Another Day In Paradise--NOT


On midday, hot and muggy, at near nineties,
A young man, possibly late twenties,
Had been seating on a town bench,
I sat on the empty one next to stench,
At that point, I realized he was homeless,
Just a tad later, the realization of...Read More

Omphalos
Beneath the fabled, innocent and polished mind
In a tinderbox wrapped up by an askant beldam’s hand
Above an unmarked grave that is welcoming, rather kind
A pair of eyes noticed a hue in the dunes of white sand.
