Premium Member Some Temples

Some temples are cluttered.
Everywhere there are
or just sitting around

The congregation ride luggage carts 
in the dead of night,
sing drunkenly, slam doors, 
or watch HBO with the volume way up,

That was a hotel in Muncie Indiana.
A temple I...Read More

Night Ride
New Orleans thieved my heart at the start of spring, 
my stomach dropped along the bayou 
across to Mobile on train.
She stopped long enough to sing
in keeping with the rain. 
Atlanta's pink sky roaring, 
sore throats to spotted ring,
caught a...Read More

Premium Member Lifeless Eyes of Ted Bundy
Lifeless were the eyes of infamous Ted Bundy
No remorse, all emotion had been doused
His gaze pierced my soul as I gave testimony
He maintained there’d been too much publicity
Four coeds attacked in a sorority house
Lifeless were the eyes of infamous...Read More

Premium Member Tribute to Daniel
“In this life there’s been heartache and pain”
How could I begin to find love again
Desperado walking a tightrope

Cold heart melted, longed for your embrace

A crooning owl sang me to sleep each night
From beyond the great oak that held my torn kite
Ripples from the pool filter heard each morn
Screened in porch that morning glories adorned
Spring came early for twenty-three grand years

Premium Member End of the Bowden Reign
From Deion Sanders to Warrick Dunn
Bobby Bowden coached some of the best
Highly regarded by team and staff
The FSU coach withstood each test

With two national championships
And two great Heisman Trophy winners
Tallahassee fans basked in glory
Until the talent ranks grew thinner

Suddenly loyalty’s...Read More

Having just come down from "Tulsey town" and Memphis by the way.

Down in Tallahassee
An American lassie stayed
Her poetry is a joy to read
It's the way her writes displayed

Writes on subjects cool
They en captured all our thoughts
Of history and life
Our imaginations caught

Near the ocean she will be
To stay...Read More

An Owl so proud
In a forested area
With it's Tallahassee crowd
There will be a sad day
Drawing so near
Flapping his wings goodbye

High noon beckons
For this trio of men
With a flick of the wrist
And the write of their pen
Words transcend from thoughts to paper
Like a delicate cut, from the best draper
Images flow and picture our sight
These three Amigos, and their literal...Read More

Down Tallahassee
Down Florida way
The talents of a poet
Make this Highlanders day

The writes we read
The tales she shares
Incredible words
Just make me stare

The more I read

With it's favourite toy

As her grammar builds
The pictures show
Her mind...Read More

Underneath The Tallahassee Bridge
I could not
Recognize his voice,
When I made this choice,
To sell my soul to the devil
I suppose, he wears the right clothes
We met underneath the Tallahassee Bridge
He plays a mean red fiddle, with a whiskey smile
With an Irish Jig, we dance...Read More

Tallahassee Driving
upon hard grey streets of asphalt I drive
through morn’s muted orange glow 
white headlights shine, red brake lights blink in time
with changing signals red, yellow, green
disoriented city visitors a hindrance to the flow
why at seven a.m.

now stopped two cars back...Read More
