A cacophony of images flow
 past and future dreams on the go,
thinking two things at once
 focused on lunch,
twirling lights and jingled tambourines
 paint a picturesque magical dream.
All is quiet, immobile in the sway
 that dances in the mind play

Here on the night before yesterday’s dream,
twilight composers retreat
Laughing at whispers a’ flow on the stream,
happily taking a seat

Practicing meadowlark lyrics to sing,
strumming a toadstool in tune
Awaiting the light that the fireflies bring,
blinking a wink at the moon

Angels Danced, For Luloo

It was Christmas Eve and your father looked at his watch praying beyond hope that 
you would not be born exactly at midnight.  According to superstition that would
make you a witch by birth. The year was 1929 and ...Read More

Gypsy Love
Rustling skirts of gypsy women
Ears all tattered with gold
Tambourines and bells abide
While hearts fly by on wings of old

Hoops of flaming fire
Honey nectar flows freely so
Eyes are black as coal at night
Red lips are all aglow

So Rustle those skirts my...Read More

Nature's Symphony
As dark gives way to light and day begins to dawn the symphony of sounds begin.
First a single chirp from a lone bird, then a response from a mate in reply.
Then as if on cue, the other birds in the...Read More

Premium Member Backflips
Lately, in my dreams
I'm doing backflips
On trampolines
Vaulting higher than high
Bouncing off
The springy sky
Free from gravity
Of worry
As the ground
Falls off my feet

I careen
To the beat 
Of tambourines
Tail lashing
Lavender flashing
Pom-pom sized
Orange eyes
I'm as free
As I want to be
Lately, in my dreams.

Celebration of Life
The stage was being set. 
I needed to get out of the way so that I 
Would not end up squashed by the stage's immense size.
Yet even as the edges of the stage did nudge me, I could
Feel the softness...Read More

Open Vibration

When the rectangular walls
of life were closing in,
I felt the lid of a coffin shutting

Death was calling out,
telling me
I don’t have to breathe again ...

Just give in to the dark stillness

Then in the final moment of my crisis,
a flash of...Read More

The Flamenco dancer swirled and twirled past me 
her red voluminous red skirt floating
such intensity in her face
I was enthralled with her strength

her feet stomped in rhythm

her hands curved...Read More

The shepherd unrolls his bedding,
Too late to get back home,
He must lie, his head on desert rock,
‘Til the raising of the dawn.

He wonders what he cannot see
Behind the stars that shine above,
Does his mother look down on him,
With her old...Read More

Sweet Spring
Here comes Spring, sweeter than ever,

It's time...
For a mother
In this mother.

Bring out those tambourines!
Brother Wolf will scream, as
Black, white, and in-between keys harmonize as teams.

Wise women don't cower.

From the U.S. to Timbuktu, toot on!
First, the weak is made strong

Our Countryside Orange Fair

Our countryside road was

Festooned with orange heaps

Escorting us to be the grand orange fair

The gypsy dancers in orange flares

Jingled tambourines with orange ribbons

The bloated sun like an optimised orange

Spread its golden tissued canopy

Lighting up the already lit hearts

I let the...Read More
