I step outside to gaze up at the sky
   Day by day different clouds float by
Some puffy, some wispy, others gray or white
   Some set with the sun at dusk
Others stay out the whole summer night...Read More

and fractured fly rod journeyman 
eyed a fish in the morning mist 
kissing with giggle and lemon twist

he said he saw a bobbing head
round and fat with locks of red
six feet tall as the tale is...Read More

Premium Member Fairy Tale

Some memories are a pantomime in a dolls house.
A lantern-slide show in a small old-time theater.
Each seat occupied with an audience of one.

The spectacle is painted in sunny colors
as if some skillful child had chosen fairy-tale similes
to illustrate parts of...Read More

“And little boy”
He (god) said.
You would be lost 
In the world of wonderness.
If I tell u the tale of her existence.
She inherited the rage of sun.
Amalgamated with;
Fine calmness of the Moon.
Alike to it, 
She loves her scars.
And her eyes;
They carry,
Galaxies...Read More

Premium Member Covid 19: The Movie
It would make a terrific movie script -
I can imagine the opening scene -
Forget about "Tales From The Mummy's Crypt,"
I give you - "The Curse Of Covid 19!"

Though possibly not within tradition,
The dreaded death-inducing condition
Would come first to those whose...Read More

Our history books will tell our future children our tale.

Germ of essence.

Shattered eggshell to the chicklet hatched.
Interlocking  family of a  kingdom.

Premium Member Where Eagles Daren't - A Tall Tale
Fleeing from the corona virus,
we headed out of town,
seeking isolation from infection.
Beyond civilisation,
beyond the traffic lights,
beyond the bitumen and the supermarkets,
we came to a wilderness 
of scrubby brush and stunted trees,
occupied by wallabies and emus,
crows and kookaburras,
nothing dangerous, 
except the...Read More

To get food and things for her family.
Alas, how heartbroken was she!
With no dairy products in the store to see.

From my wandering unbalanced brain

To adorn the sandcastle I was to build 
Impervious to the roar of the sea, 
The tall rising and approaching waves
And the swiftly flowing wind;
