Premium Member We Are Not Alone


Other civilizations on other heavenly bodies
Are looking for life in the universe with similar jollies
Do we think we're alone
Not a chance, it's well known
The odds are nil, had this theory since the talkies

Grandma, look I am flying on your broom.
Where would you be going on such a fine 
Afternoon?
Be careful that's an heirloom.

To get my costume.

Dented Cans
I remember those 
Dented tin cans
The string communication
Of my childhood.

We lived in first story houses,
Telling their fourth or fifth
As we stood on the other side
Of a world without the grey.
Eyes screwed shut,
We shouted excitement into
Our fathermade walkie talkies

Chicken noodle
Clam Chowder

Premium Member PASSING CLOUDS


Rain hurls wetness
Public places watered;
Soaking exposure

~~~~~~~~~


Dark passing clouds
Loiter and linger;
Tears from heaven

~~~~~~~~~


Rainy debris
Dry leaves soaked;
Earthy tea brew

Takeaway meal
Local gourmet touch;
Sensorial pleasures

~~~~~~~~~


Two crows sit
Rain drenched;
Tree branch spies

Cherry tomatoes
Crunchy sensations;
Power de-tox

Bus ride trip
Nowhere to go;
Surprise awaits

Old movies
Greyscale tones;
Funny talkies

TV serials
High definition colours;

Silent Talkies
                by Odin Roark

Walking the city,
camera in hand,
he snaps here,
multiple-clicks there,
videos flowing subtleties,
images en masse filling his head.

Later…

His one room comes alive,
a window shuttered,

the emergency room

when the addict comes in at night
they are ushered through electronic doors that
slam shut like a prison 
echoing down the hall &
with few people on staff
they make their rounds in the greater part of the...Read More

A student's folk tale
Stacked with books, assiduity elsewhere
Exams knocking at hand
Yet the Friday get-go
And final cut buff. 

Night at sea and morning sloth
The evening prowl and buddy talkies
Escaped tuition and soul mate bask
Brainsick few moments
Ended with a break up.
Hearsays then bared
Eyes filled up...Read More

I am the penitent fire,
The smoldering answer to the final question,
The World Host,
The vibrant colors in your eyes,

And yet...

            I spill tragedy everywhere.
