Givers and Takers 

For when I am a leaf upon the ground, 
As I often am. 
You will find me in a state of change. 
From the juicy reds and yellows 
To a blending shade of brown, to tan, to
nothing....Read More

We the people of this great USA
Are facing Coronavirus today
Coming together by staying away
Stops the transmission, holds infection at bay

If you must go to obtain any needs
Wash your hands often, that's where virus breeds

Premium Member I Love the Furniture Flipper Shows
I love the furniture flipper shows
Where people buy old furniture, fix it up
And sell it for hopefully a profit

The furniture I love often remains unsold
Whereas the items I think will never sell
Are usually the first things to be purchased

As these...Read More

Risk Takers excite me
Jumping in without hesitation
Optimism oozing out of them

Self confident
Perpetually ready
Game for whatever

Diving off cliffs
Our out of airplanes
Without caution

Expecting the best
Anticipating the thrill of the win
And usually getting it

Premium Member Party Loudly
Party Loudly 
(and hats that fit badly)
 
The comments of strangers, 
passers-by on the street,
people that matter very little, 
or even not at all. 

Effect the outcome of our lives, 
in ways we have no idea...
yet, how to feel.

Premium Member The Takers Change Christmas
There are takers, and they can ruin the season.
Teaching their children to get on all the Christmas lists.
Yelling at the do-gooders who bring toys but no receipts.
Showing the do-gooders children what appreciation does not look like.
Their children are embarrassed, realizing...Read More

The Selfish Poet

Posts their work, eat comments
as if at a feast.
But close their pen, when it
comes to a reply?
Inimitable,arrogance divine!

Do they in mirrors all day look?
Admiring only their face and poetry?

Am joyful to know that most here surely
are givers not...Read More

Written: by Miracle Man
11-11-2019

In a nefarious world such as we are now living,
We vote for wicked things making them lawful.
More are now takers than are those giving,
And the end result, is apt to be something awful.

We’re being deceived by all...Read More

Premium Member It's been a hull of a life
I'm going to sea in a blueberry boat
paddling far past fakers and breakers
where I'm told there's happiness and hope
more givers and doers not dreamers and takers
I'll sing salty songs with sharks and gulls, 
until they nibble away my blueberry hull

Premium Member I'd Rather Pick Flowers


If I weren't afraid, I'd pluck some dainty flowers
Be unashamed of mostly women at showers,
Stand with you dressed in choir robes and singing hymnals,
Be sweet like a kitty not roar like animals
Hold infant with both hands, and not catch a...Read More

Premium Member KAMEHAMEHA


Kamehameha the Great King
Banded the islands by taking,
Foreign ills brought us mass killing,
Now takers are law-abiding.

Kamehameha kept the tradition,
Cornered, I established "trade-edition."
Telescope versus beliefs,
High-cost versus reliefs,
We made those four ills o'er our extinction.

Kamehameha viewed himself as being Great,
He ate what...Read More

Berry Picking
The old man arrived a gleam in his eyes;
He announced with aplomb “berries are in”
The buckets are clean, the weather is fine;
Who wants to go berry picking with me?

So off we did...Read More

At the end of Mulberry street
stood a massive old and weathered oak. 
With an owl rested there every night , just waiting

then silent wings swooped effortlessly down
the massacre hardly made a sound...Read More

Crying At The Crib
It's sad to say but we're pathetic today; cuz we're 
childishly crying at the crib 
We're screaming, and shouting and drooling at the mouth.

I've invested too much time 
Into people I thought were genuine

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