Release the shelter of bare feet,
     rhinestones on big toes sparkle.
The tentacle-shine of sunwheat
     on the scrapyard-swig of river.

Like a sunflower, the mudlark
     shuts her eyes, complexion

WTF, I know I didn’t just see what I thought I saw
This old dude slammed on breaks to talk to a little girl

Rational Science
The atmosphere killed, but moisture came from rock,
I did not judge this sinner’s block ravishing, just clock,
No stripes inside to ease away the pain, despair, hock,
Wires to traverse those structures not according, shock.

Did the eclipse light a fire within the...Read More

hillside is ablaze
with glorious golden gorse
spring is here at last

lambs gambol in fields
meadow lush with verdant grass
rook collects dry twigs

a flash of white tail
baby bunny goes to ground
hawk flies overhead

Our Island is on lock down for 21 days and no...Read More

He told her
She was a gift,
A timely offering
From the universe,
A universe 
Ruled by a sadistic god
Holding a compass 
In his cruel hand

The god pierced the center
Of the invisible circle of time
And pencil down, 
The compass began
Its predictable course

It began with...Read More

Premium Member The Horse

Why does the brown mare stand
just so,
her head over the wire fence
but gazing at nothing?

Her tail flicks, ears prick.
Beyond the wire
a group of laughing children 
run past, ignoring the horse.
Wet eyes momentarily clear
then cloud over again.

Why does the brown mare
stand...Read More

When the Dingly Doo
Met the Gingly Goo,
On the subway late one night.
They fell for one another,
A case of love at first sight.

But the Dingly Doos  and the Gingly Goos’
Like the Capulets and Montagues,
Had been sworn enemies for...Read More

Premium Member Starlight

As sunset fades from pink to violet
And twilight skies show trees in silhouette
Our heaven's open vault of diamonds shine
In awestruck twinkling glimmers so divine.

Reflections from these stars upon the sea
Share a peaceful grace with humanity.
Moon with its companion Venus, not...Read More

I sense one’s sight, I wiggle my tail
My cheeks are kissed, I shriek in silence
My ears receive joy, it’s kept in my mail
I laugh in my visions. This makes no sense

I sleep in bed just to dream of some friend

Premium Member Up The Wall
Consider the gecko splayed on the wall,
Leisurely ascending, taking its time,
A complacent lizard, sturdy but small,
Continuing slowly upwards to climb.
It is is uncertain if it has a goal,
Oblivious of its destination,
It maintains  a serene, debonair role,
Careless, it seems, of...Read More

Backslide Companion Blues
Of all the gin joints, 
and pool halls, 
on bar stools, 
and in the shallows of oceans, the Siren calls.
It calls us men back.

If only men can bust that Jack!
Oh, for years you evaded all men like me,
and kept hidden...Read More

Our Flying Days
Our Flying Days
I’m flying over the lake near where you live.  
There’s your house, your small wood cabin by the shore. 
Looks child like from up here.

The fishing is great. 
Views even better. 
Especially when you’re stood by the...Read More

One thing I love about memory 
is how a song, an aroma, or simply something that’s been said
can awaken a memory from where it rests and pop it in my head…

A peaceful dawn in a verdant rainforest 
Stretching and lowering their head submissively
Two tiger cubs in a fun frolic play and kittens yowl
Actively under trees, limbs, and leaf brushes passivity
Hugs, scratches, bites, and tiger growls 

Along comes a black heart...Read More

He sat on a square stone under an olive tree

Or dromedary in Sahara.

Wealth dreams of sunshine, as I gallop through fields,
welcome is the rain endless sea of amber it yields.

Through sea of fresh, clean, golden wheat,
new dried fodder stored for the livestock to eat.

With will unwavering 
Riding a robust horse
Pakshiraj or Pegasus 
The winning force 
Empowers one to reach the distant shore
Sky height unforeseen before 
But lagging in tenacity it’s often abandoned
Fading dream-flower crumbles or 
Die in the bud.
