Premium Member Hats Off
I never thought I'd see the day
  when Illinois' leaders held sway
Taking the lead in this deadly war
  against a virus Mr. Trump tried to ignore

Hats off to Governor J.B. Pritzker
  and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot

Carefree Carousel
screams of pure joy laughing out loud 
jingling beauty bells in carnival crowd 
flying reigned horses, rattling on clouds
giggles on saddles, princes play proud.

chariot of happiness, innocence found 
anchored childhood, fun loops abound 
carefree calliopes , cymbals frolic sound

25 - Bee-Real

As I flew up, into the air, 
I looked back one last time at the hive.
All the bees were standing there.
Some were happy and proud to see me go; some were still crying.
As they held handkerchiefs up against their noses,
I...Read More

At any given moment countless thought processes
Soundlessly ricochet to and fro
hither and yon
roundly bobbing within squarely donned
talking heads of psycho killers,
one pyromaniac burning 
down the crowded house
sparking magnificent conflagration
towering inferno emulating

caterwauling, kickstarting, ululating
(think) stray cats on a hot tin roof
nsync with 10,000 maniacs
intense heat and duraflame

In the cemetery walks the wind;
Trees move seems like out of the way;
As the sun escorts it's whelm;
Funny little birds running out cross grasses play;

walks cemetery winds...

Tenderly the gravestones sit;
Those marble stones tandem large;
Up upon the rays of sun hit;

Be Better
Breaking is the morning of January the first,
Each new minute a new opportunity to immerse yourself

Beyond and into a new perspective.
Earning gratitude from simply a lived
Tangent. Following moments to ignite a heart’s
Tandem. Diving deep into happiness in every part,
Every portion....Read More

The Parable and the Penguin

All the world a stage
Our love not left on a shelf
Waters edge, in spades

Written in stone, ring
Waddle waddle kind of swing
Will you marry me

As we take the plunge
Into the depths out of blue
Our ceremony

Is a slow walk, true
Is a path...Read More

Projecting himself as concert prince
My special child, full of confidence
Serenades by his tunes’ preference
Enthralling my heart he does convince.

Using his left hand in mic*’s absence
He belts out with gracious persistence
Then prodding me by his insistence
I join him for a duet...Read More

Why didn’t you hire a tandem,
If we had to ride together?
Did you ever ask yourself whether
I’d be comfortable like this?
I know you are working harder than me,
But I have a bell where a bell shouldn’t be.

Premium Member FRAGMENTS 5


Assorted fragments tossing
In the wind-blown gravity
Of being and becoming
Not yet adulterated by time
And mellow beyond space
Yet all-abiding in principle
Where each iota of blood
Gushes in tandem even prompts
Simple harmonic motion hence

Candid conversation
A glimpse
Into delirium
In tandem
To candied slices of reality
A tangent set off course
In a realm of free radicals
Exponentially complex 
In a most quirky bizarre
Parallel universe

Premium Member Where Bumbles Bounce
Flitting and buzzing in a 
playful, poetic dance
a whirr of delicate wings 
crescendos and decrescendos
among a colorful carpet of
sumptuous, silky petals. 

Daring drones speed dizzily about
barely resting, constantly competing 
in a crazy chase for their sticky prize. 
Swooning with drunken...Read More

Castaway stranded on figurative 
deserted island pitted with absolute

Wherefrom did you get your yellow roses

Wherefrom did you get your yellow roses
Ocean in eyes looking deeply for the shores
Marks of punctuation the prose merrily loses
In every pore the lyre plays love lore

With your red and blue
Bringing out a hue
From blend-the-moon milieu

Too Many Cooks
If a broth can be spoiled 
By too many cooks
That advice can, as well, be applied
To a patient consulting 
With too many docs
To determine what problem's inside.

But conflicting reports

USDA dose of jocularity doth not compute
fatty deposit usurped
my washboard physique
I can no longer lay claim
as pencil necked geek
mute tinny utterances futile

to write and/or speak
as recourse to cope with
displeasing body morphology

to offset feeling morose, and

regular exercise regime to tweak
objectionable physiognomy,
