Strengthens the cage that holds you 
Walks back and forth like an inquisitor
Allows the dripping of pain and horrors of again to spike 
Forces heart and hands to want more 
Brings vivid glimpses of what’s...Read More

Premium Member Giver and Taker
Giver gave meals, desserts, gas money, love
Taker took them all gladly but demanded more
Giver tried to please. Gave a car and a home.
Taker made fun of giver for being a chump.
Giggling with friends about how easy giver was.
Giver heard but...Read More

Risk taker, warrior maker…

An ambitious druid set out to recover an omnipotent ancient fluid

She was a kind witch with a wee twitch about to discover a glitch

Laboured with great force to go back to the Source and in due course

She tabled a motion...Read More

Grim Reaper
Death, I have experienced not.
But of it I have stolen, a clear glimpse
As it whisked passed me
So plain 
In grim faces with 
eyes deeply stained
Evident through streams
Flowing, by the nose, separated.

Ooh! I recognise death:
Dried tongue with bittersweet taste,
Deep into the...Read More

Invisible Strokes of Guitar
I had just retired to bed
Around midnight, perhaps
Soft strokes of guitar

First I got startled
It was a one room facility
Not a mouse in sight

I alone was on tour
On my office duty
Puzzled, I looked around

A velvet soft tune
Almost intoxicating
Coming from a little...Read More

Premium Member If I Weren't Afraid

If I weren’t afraid, I’d do a zany thing -
something that would give my life a little zing.

Inside a private plane, I’d be flown up so high,
then step into the blue and dive into vast sky!

A parachute I’d wear -...Read More

Word Requiem in D Minor

Fancy meeting you here. 
Last time we met like this?
That would be 1979, at Rio.
I remember we walked slowly 
Up to the second floor balcony, 
Of the overlooking science building,
Scanning with four eyes the big cemetery,
Set...Read More

The whiteness of his hair
It shows his age
As agitated as he is
It leaves you wandering
What is on his mind

He is a mystery
What a puzzle
He is a risk taker
What a gambler
He is what he grew up with

The eagerness of being somewhere
Is...Read More

Covered by lush forest and grass carpet
Where flora and fauna grows abundantly
Beneath your skin are vastful minerals and treasures

You have formed in millions of years as scientifically estimated by man
But you are supernaturally made in...Read More

Folded tight
sharp corners,

“I read maps” the traveller said

She wasn’t convinced, it was obvious
he’d been hauled up for years in his
“Man Shed”

“Yeah, I do, I read maps”, he said

“What?”, he said

Gray days, cobweb clouds, skeleton trees through my frosty window

Mother Met Cancer
She was beautiful
A strong woman
Full of love
Mother, friend, our father's light
The giver of life
Lovingly, she touched everyone
That she met

But Mother met cancer

He was diabolical
Aggressive, relentless
The taker of life
Viciously, he touched everyone
That he met

Light vs dark, good against evil
Oh how hard...Read More

As We Suspected With Trump Connected

We always knew and surely suspected,
With Trump they had been connected;
A breath taker;
Trouble maker;
Debts he has needing to be collected.

Killing Stick
The old man walks up the olive hill,
Iron bedrock washes out to sea,
A cleft splits the iron hill,
The valley blooms a pistachio tree,
The old man breaks the killing stick,
The point is ruddy and its heart is green.

Breaker of branches rattle...Read More
