Premium Member A Light at the End of the Tunnel
"What a fine day for a picnic," my friends all said,
In the dog days of summer, with the hot sun overhead.

We would all go for a swim, and then have a fine lunch,
And would return refreshed and happier, we had...Read More

Premium Member Bodega Talk

I empty my basket at the counter.

Six individual cans of strong imported beer.
A plastic bottle of ’Tums’ antacids.
A box of frozen French Bread Pizza.
A jar of jalapeno peppers.

The wiry cute middle-aged blond
checks the items, then checks me out.
I flash my...Read More

I am one of nature’s most grand masterpieces
Forget the anti-ageing pills and the maquillage
All you need are my fleeting wrinkles on your pretty face 
And you are good to go

I am without a price-tag
I do not belong to anyone but...Read More

In daylight hours when stars fall sleep, 
They opened wide eyes to see celestial wonder –
The sun and moon at play 
Racing across their blue playground in hide and seek – 
A game of tag – 
Leaving trails of...Read More

Premium Member A Sea Of Surreal

Tag, you're it, chosen in the game of life
it's your turn to decipher its meaning.
Though sarcasm is as sharp as any knife
it's a fruitless seed that's oft demeaning
and faults common sense for intervening.

To a child that thinks the world's their...Read More

Playing the Game
There is a game we all must play
Without the slightest hope of winning.
It doesn't cease at end of day,
From start to end, it's one long inning.
The game observes no rules, no guidelines,
Though there well may be a master plan,
Much like...Read More

Past times
We try to relive them, we try to forget them
Past times have shaped today, some we have defied
Some have died in unopened pages, others live on in folklore
They never go away, no matter how fast the future comes along

Farewell Fifth Grade
We leave the fifth grade reunion, go to another school
to a place that's much calmer

No more tag or hide and seek or 
gathering in a circle to play Duck Duck Goose.

No more random stories,
from rolling the story cubes.

No more hanging...Read More

Wild, Beautiful, Little Things
Before the sun is fully up
Beside the window with my cup
I watch them come on silent wings
Those wild, beautiful, little things.
Each day they visit more and more
The feeder by my cabin door

Small clans of tiny Chickadees
Fluttering in by twos and...Read More

But due to evil & greed

Making me the most hunted amongst the human kind

Premium Member Ask This of Yourself
Does the butterfly dream of (or gravitate more) to the form
That emerges from silk (spun cocoons)? Does the mist
Of a waterfall know it births rainbows, sense honor in fall?
Though it plummets scant inches or thousands of feet,
Does it know it...Read More

Tom Boy
As a child I was called a Tom Boy,
following my twin brother like a shadow,
wherever he went I would tag along,
hanging out with school boys to belong.

Backyard kickball kept us out of trouble,
playing for hours during the summer,
I learned to...Read More

Slim and Chance
This is the story of Slim & Chance,
Always peacock-ing and runnin’ game
Dubbed the neighborhood know-it-alls
No two stories were ever the same.
Flashing names like badges
Like detectives on a case.
Til the tangled web of lies
They wove gave chase.
Tryna get by on the...Read More

Premium Member Of Fences Moment

A child stood whimsically staring beyond my stately fence of
neighborly convictions, I stoically beckon my approval of his

I proffered a parents nightmare of wrapped gooey sweetness

The Great Banquet

I’ve been to many banquets and many smorgasbords;
The fare has been so sumptuous as there it all was stored.
I’d try to take a sample of everything I liked;
The salads were so tasty, the meat looked cooked just right.
