Premium Member Being My Most Favorite Me
I tap dance through the clouds of doubt
Shaking my body
Throwing my feathered boa in the air

The air laughs
Catching it and running with it
Dropping it in the top of a large oak

That’s that! I say,
So I find my skates.
Skating my truth...Read More

She has belief
without comprehension
and in her crutchwork shack
she is
much like us . . .

tamping the bread
into edible forms,
regarding her children
at play
with something akin to relief . . .				

ignoring the towers ablaze
in the distance
because they are not revelations
but things of glass,
easily...Read More

The heart cries crimson tears that drown the soul
Tamping out passion's flame til it's black coal
Body left empty, jeweled by a thin rope
Foul eternity for love without hope.

Empty Feeders
The feeders were empty, dejected, forlorn.
The lady who filled them had suddenly gone.
Her time here now ended, she wakened no more:
Gone from her gardens, departed her door.
This little much mattered to birds on the wing,
With winter now over, well...Read More

I am a party animal, my heritage is mixed
quite content to lounge about when conditions remain fixed. 

Suppose that’s the nobility which Krypton must provide,
maintaining stiff upper lip when I’m all buzzed inside.

Then too, I’m mostly nitrogen, which is very...Read More

The Emerald Doorway
There lies a location with an Emerald Doorway
leading to a shared past.
Waiting for it's own children to visit.
We slipped thru the portal again this summer,
Jacquie, I and another child, her son Joe.
Immediately, I sensed decades of joy surrounding us
And heard...Read More

Barely above a breathe
My identity dissolves
I am a freakish clown of weak display
Remnants of noble motions ripple flatter and wider along the lake
I am quieting everything, like tamping countless steam pipes
And so if these pipes sang they would sing, what?:

Sweet roseate little flower
The evergreen bush princess
Dancing on a gentle breeze air
your scent in my breast nestles
to the recesses of my heart ,it travels
Dripping honeyed nectar, my blood it ripples.

Dazzling, joyous little wren
Soaring uncloudy blue skies
Deeper inside my soul
tamping down...Read More

Walking in the Wind for she
Under the sighing sky I stood within the swaying grass
With the rain pelting me like tears of heaven fallen just for us, we the two
And where were you when open these arms did I to the sky and rains drinking...Read More

Echoes From The Past.
From the walls the voices clamor,
Chasing me away from my solace and contentment,
These laughing phantoms of dreams almost forgotten,
Reminding me of almost and could have been,
Showing me places I can’t quite remember,
Of faces that I think I just might make...Read More
