Premium Member Today There Are No Eyes On Me
Today there are no eyes on me,
a puzzling curiosity!
Whilst riding through the town most days
so many eyes are wont to gaze -

admirers of my fine fetlocks;
my handsome withers, hooves and hocks,
my finely groomed and lustrous mane,
the smart red garb that...Read More

The Garment

You came to me, friend, seeking comfort
From a blustering wind
Clutching in your heart the shreds of a dream
Slashed by a storm of harsh words.

Threads made up of stolen moments
Woven in borrowed afternoons –
Patches of evening with moonlight stitches,
Scraps of...Read More

Hip hip hooray, what a beautiful day.

Thoughtful presents from father's relatives.

And maybe a shirt to go with his suit.

troubles walking path of my conscience,

Gift Exchange
When giving gifts, it’s nice to try
To tailor every choice you buy
To that which each recipient
Would like and doesn’t cost a mint.

While others cause your teeth to gnash
And as the holidays draw near
Anxiety may...Read More

Just when I thought I'd never love again
You came
A human version of perfection
Found my heart scattered
My soul lonely
And my mind restless
You put me down

Without a sewing machine
A tailor that uses her within
To make beautiful flowers
Out of broken...Read More
