Coffin Trees- Part One
In the small town of Willowsberg, in the 1950s, it was said that the ground was magic. The rumor was that if you buried a man with a seed in his hand, and watered the grave with blood every full...Read More

Premium Member He was a Scoundrel
He rode into town on a big white horse
Showing he was serious of course
We were amazed and amused

Many maidens gave a deep sigh
And married women thought I know not why
We smiled among ourselves

Is he a prince, a rogue or a...Read More

kites are not flying
but leaves are swirling in a magic way
gentle breezy wheezy day

hot tasty chili for supper tonight

SUNRISE - SUNSET
Shyly you raise your head above the horizon
Soon the landscape you emblazon
Calling all to their daily task
Thankfully in your warmth, we bask

Dispelling the furtive activities of some
Fear of the nocturnal overcome
Each by their own laws will abide
Lending them no cover...Read More

Premium Member A pied piper for me
His line and verse flow like honey
Lovely, smooth, bright and sunny
A pied piper for me

He speaks of love in phrases pure
His words take wing, on airborne tour
Soaring high and free

Yet he himself is down to earth
Epitome of cheer and mirth

THE Dress
A youthful innocent face.
The pencil moves over the paper as of its own violation,
each stroke capturing the aspiration of the next generation.

Some silk and Chantilly lace.
The bride to be and the dress in an enchanted relationship;
The exquisite fabric cut and...Read More

Premium Member The Voyage of the Lodestar
On ocean's journey the wee lad set sail
slight frame a-tremble and gaunt face so pale
His fortune and fame for to seek

The grand ship had been christened the 'Lodestar'
Rugged build for adventure's repertoire
This voyage not one for the meek

To ports far...Read More

Premium Member O, Why'd you Leave
Was it something I said inadvertently
Did my eyes reveal uncertainty
O, why'd you leave

Was my rapt listening inattentive
Or passion's kisses uninventive
O, how I grieve  

Alcohol, not once did I abuse
Or narcotics ever use
O, the sighs I've heaved

To the kids, I...Read More

Premium Member Michael Jordan really cared
There once played a Chicago Bull
To spellbound fans, a stadium full
His name was Michael Jordan

He jumped above the rim so high
It seemed his head might touch the sky
His dunks were legend

He made his team into world champs
Impressed on it his...Read More

Premium Member A Nasty Thought
The prisoner quailed.
His plea had failed.
He would be impaled,
And he wasn't even a vampire.

His countenance paled.
He slowly exhaled.
Soon he'd be nailed -
How long would it take to expire?

Premium Member Feeling is Believing
To feel is to believe
without reason.
To realize is to believe
with reason.

To feel is to believe
in a spiritual inside touch,
surprising humor
torrential flood
without conscious reason.

To realize is to believe
in my natural inside reach,
surprising good and bad subconscious humors,
rumors,
tumors,
torrential potential soul flood,

HOW YOU LOOK AT IT

Live your life gratefully,

       believing it's been blessed.

       It will happily be so.


Spend it resentfully,

       believing it's been cursed.

Premium Member THUNDER CRAVES

A storm brews a cause for coffee,
Coffee bruise hearts of fears to be,
Dicey fate of affairs,
Lightning strikes and thunder rolls free,
The counting stopped after thirty,
A word to the wise shares,
Precautions have been made, maybe,
Fears will be soothe with more coffee,

Premium Member SHOUT IGNORANCE AWAY

A young teen walks by with a hood,
He might be up to nothing good,
Then a dog starts to bark,
He turns with a look, if he should,
He returns and looks like he would,
A dog goes to a park.

SNIPER


Mortally wounded, 
a soldier writhes
in pain,

     crawls bloody

From up a cliff

aim again

PARACHUTES


Wet leaves glisten 
     on the bough.

Crystal dewdrops drip 
     down, fall slo-mo,

each parachuting
     on a tiny halo

to kiss the damp 
     grass below!
