Premium Member So It Goes
Roses are crimson, gardenias white,
The Taj Mahal is a beautiful sight,
Rocks are hard, water is wet,
The sky hasn't fallen yet,
Day is still faithfully following night....Read More

Premium Member Have a Cuppa
We used to just have a cup of coffee

	Black

		Possibly with milk

			Maybe with sugar

Mostly on Sundays and with cream as a bonus


Today they call it caffe latte or cappuccino

	Americano for the purist

What if we lost, the Great Pyramid of Giza?
What if it collapsed, the Roman Coliseum?
What if the Great Wall of China, was suddenly gone?
The Hagia Sophia...was nothing but a song.

Premium Member Pale shelter
Ashen was the sky 
That rejected hand of sunrise
Sullen was the heart
That stumbled in affection,

Incapable of lauding
Ruby blush of budding rose
And pink passions on horizon
Defying darkened woes.

In midst of a vibrant spring
Her garden blooms curled up
Amid hostile dry weather,

Teared-up, she...Read More

Overdraft finds me chill and off balance
Penuriousness long did acquaint
yours truly, who feels loath
to lodge complaint
regarding series of unfortunate events
(Lemony Snicket be damned)

now aghast with horror

I unwittingly did faint,
only negative indebted interest accrues,
now if ever mister money bags I haint,
no gainsay purposelessness

Premium Member I WANT A WINDOW SEAT

It seems they’re always travelling; they never have a care.
While all I do is work these fields, in this unforgiving heat.

Taj Mahal
Noor* of Taj Mahal, jeweled in red stone 
 death or love, tranquil oasis alone
 rich jasper and jade hanging on its walls
 in cold melody, mourning music falls

 Mesmerizing bride in gossamer gown
 Veil reveals... the majestic palace crown.
