Premium Member Harrow, Harrow
Bushfires are raging already this year,
High temperatures are no doubt the reason,
Those vulnerable are living in fear.

High temperatures are no doubt the reason,
Combined with an absence of rain,
Resulting in a hot, hectic season.

Combined with an absence of rain,
There is the...Read More

Premium Member Goosebumps
I’m scared of myself when you’re around; 
A mouth full of sandpaper 
my voice and throat are bound; 

The sensation crackles with danger 
like lightning, every hair is raised, 
anxiously awaiting the cliffhanger; 

Holding it together by a silken thread,...Read More

Premium Member The Best Time in a Barn
The bolt was not on the barn that day
A big mistake by Old Man Fuzzins
We thought it was the perfect place to play.

We brought in a bunch of our cousins
Some of them slightly odd ding-a-lings
They had ideas by the dozens

Witch, warlock, goblin and vampire fine
Wearing one slipper and one tennis shoe
They all ran home at promptly half past nine.

Fine goblins, ghosts, and ebony cats too.
And a lively she devil newly born
Hid down at the corner at twenty-two

Barn owls wearing...Read More

Premium Member Nature's Cello


Nature's divided into four seasons 
each eye-catching in a similar way
and yet, different for many reasons.

Winter's crystalline beauty carries sway
but She is both barren and deathly cold
with a hollowed-out heart of papier-mache.

Spring’s spectacle slowly breaks Winter’s hold
accompanied by a moist...Read More

Soon Robots Will Replace Human Intelligence
Books are being stacked on the streets to impinge   
blame on their words as worthless thoughts; 
yesterday they were a great source of knowledge.

Your face may CONTORT in SURPRISE,
Your SUBCONSCIOUS may be CONFUSED,

ONCE BAD
If only you knew me,
When I was in dark state,
I was born by the sea.

Can't remember the date,
Grew up without a dad,
Turned bad when I was eight.

Taking drugs made me  mad
I'm the boss on the street,
My actions made mum...Read More

PRAISES' ECSTASY
Self-inflicted wounds causing misery
Sins do shut my soul from joyous worship
Robbing me of God-granted victory.

Toward triumphant faithful stewardship
I pursue through Christ’s fortifying might
Vanquishing oppressive vain partnership.

While in the Saviour’s sweet communion light
My spirit enjoys lovingkindness
Loathing to miss His warm presence-delight.

Premium Member Fetch my skimmer
Slugs and snails line the highway,
Munching, crunching, drinking fumes;
Early in the morning, late at day.

A tunnel of black ahead looms,
Feasting on diesel, ready to growl;
Into the maw a lucky one zooms.

Compacted inside the giant jowl,
Hooter poised, horsepower stalls;
Bodies meet with...Read More

Deer do frolic: How they run and laugh and play

As clouds drift off to Heaven's vast expanse

Its ardor grew like the sprouts being verdant green,
As the lowliness of a meadow's reach for sun.
Their whispered breaths trails farewell to a doting Spring,

Neath the grassy spreads of life, seeks a saffron sky.
Enters the hoverance, flights a white dove...Read More

to Emily Dickinson
-- Queen of dashes! --
but potential fame
with seclusion -- clashes

As for me, I feel no shame
thrilled by my poems' views
or entering a contest game

Sharing Natures' news
we have in common
or venting the blues...

I'd rather be a poet
than marry a...Read More

Compliant to God, never defiant
Persistent in doing His will by grace
Jubilant, amidst trials, triumphant!

I’m upheld by His love’s magnificence
For joyous service along might’s brace!

Lithe Lyrics

With sounds that gather round the ocean’s shore,
the whimsied muse her lithesome being girds
in utterances from unfathomed store.

Akin to Alice dwelling in absurds
the words go round and round in Cheshire grin
when off I go on romp of rhyming thirds

The Templed Heart
You've lost your mate one decade gone,
a longshoreman who bode his time
upon the seas from dusk till dawn.

the towering waves to safely ground
his skiff, bring men home in their prime

Inspiration, my fickle old friend,
You come and you go as you will,
And so, on you, I cannot depend.

Only to leave me all alone
Unable to drink up my heart’s fill.

Please, never take a toddler to the store.
But if you do, you’ll find that I am right.
