Early Late
Early sun rising rainbows dance on my wall
I wake up I am late
Early spring late train again

Late home hunger pains
Early dinner a takeaway
Late bedtime too much telly

Early morning feeling tired
Late again turn the alarm off
Early train oh no I missed...Read More

Still Me
When I was first around her I showed her true care
if you're scared to speak look at me I'm there

I'll protect you from harm anytime anywhere

Takeaway on lunch dates from an introvert
Exchanging cloddish giggles
Gawky, flailing limbs
Quota, reaching, nibbles
Cloth to dot our chins

Predictable mindless chatter
We must appear intrigued
An opening to flatter
Allows a moment of relief

And during this scenario 
Our hearts will both, descend
At the transition of the , stereo
Subject ends, til next...Read More

Am I the only one
Am I the only One who sees the need elsewhere,
Who objects to TV's in the takeaway shop here,
The hospital waiting room over there,
And one in the adjoining corridor, just to be sure.
Huge ones at too many sports venues in case...Read More

Premium Member LATE EVENING

Here on the first day
Of a plush new year,
Feel a fine pulse play
As new light endears.

Rain in the dawn light
Spreads a misty feel,
Sleep with dreamy sights
As the new year spills.

Sun and rain speed trance
As drowsy morn sifts,
Awake in blur glance

Fires Out
Fire's Out

Walking through the woods one day
I met a dragon in dismay
I didn't know that they could talk
So thought I'd carry on my walk

But as I passed I heard a hiss
A voice that said I'll tell you this

Scenes from the coming revolution
A bend in the road
They wait & have time to wait
For the coming car & it´s occupants
Unaware of their fate
The same scene is about to be
Played out on countless
Other bends
On countless other roads
In a tall building she sits
By a window...Read More

I don't want to talk about it
I don't have the strength right now I need to focus on other things 
I'll find the best way to talk about my suffering
Tomorrow I'll go down that path, but right now I'll walk around it
Right now I don't want...Read More

Your Name
__Your Name__

In the verdant macrocosm of summertide
Leaves on the merry boughs palpitate hearing your golden name. 
The unremetting gush of Nyera-Ama river
Hasten in glee resonating thine name to the Southron flat.
Upon the crest of serene ether
Comely nymphs and angels dance...Read More

Late Night Blues Stop
Late night hunger drives you delusional, mad,
You crave where to go, along with FM blues, tad,

Or the creepy feel of a drunk, passionate and creative lad,

I staggered down the road looking for skirt

Staggering around all over the place

Songbird acapella
Early morning hymn;
Balcony recital


Blurry haze
Burnt ash off-odours;
Surabaya harvest


Bridge underpass
Homeless man dozes;
Happy dreams lurk


Chinatown brisk walk
Noodle takeaway;


Coin shop interlude
Metallic global trips;
Static travelogue


Darling smiles
Sunset stroll;
Silence speaks loud


Fanfare flair
Just for today;
Death anniversary


Wayside flowers
Mystic beauty;
Unknown aura

Noisy passage;
Sense suffocates


Concoct a tale
Long-lost monologue;
Wayside flowers

Espresso time with double shot,
Hot caffeine rhymes with oomph I plot.

Watch people come for a warm fix.
Seek cuppa sums in a brown mix.

Swirl of hot drink keeps senses sharp,
Move thoughts that link ideas that harp.

Queue long enough for fragrant flow,

Songbird psalm
Balcony duet;
Cheery cold morning


Squirrel escapades
Up and down and up;
Curious zigzag


Quick footsteps surge
By parkway bench;
Eyes far away


Old man sits
Stares at people;
Solitary wonder


Chocolate ganache cake
Half for my neighbour;
Gratitude smiles


Silent distress stings
Lift breakdown;
Sultry faces


Rainy blessing
On my forehead;
Aqueous baptism


Cigarette ban enforced
