Premium Member I Heard Strangers Whispering


They turned up in their Sunday best
To pay respects my mother cried,
I was not sure what she meant
I only knew my father died.

The hearse arrived, people shuffled,
Standing solemn, looking tense,
I heard strangers whispering
A strange affair, it made no sense.

I looked...Read More

Hey Diddle Diddle
Hey diddle diddle, dee
Mother Goose is cool
She's a kid's teaching tool.
Nursery rhymes, you rock.

I've read you all my life,
and as adult full-grown
made up some of my own.
Here 's one you've never heard: 

Hey diddle diddle, dee,
Cat’s fiddle is too loud.

An antecedent me, a subsequent
and present me, all those me who went
through stones, plants, amoebas, arthropods,

reptilians, arachnids, mammals, men
and women, a reptilian again

Cat's Meow
It was a story old and discrete, the screech worthy of repeat
 disconnected from everyday communal speak.
It was always in the night children closed their doors in fright
 fearing creatures might awake, and slip in their minds to take.

The mirage of heaven
A paradise of perpetual peace. 
No sleaze. .no struggle. .
no murk. .no malice. 
Glaciers in river of honey embellish. 
Verdant meadows in fleecy breeze.
 
Chandeliers,  candles and roses thereupon...
No din. .no haze. .only stars..

Nan
Sewing machine, long idle, gathered dust
Absentmindedly, Jackie wrote her name
thereupon, watching as dust motes floated
upwards, caught in sunset's evening rays
Brushing away a tear, she turned around
surveying, Nan's neglected room
provoked, a vague feeling of emptiness
Psychically, Jackie, quite distinctly heard

Corn soup heated with some cheese sprinkled on
Plus the addition of some bread chunks thereupon
When I was a wee one
Held mum up with a gun
Kidding, 'twas a bow'n arrow, at times a wooden baton

My letter to a virgin brother

She would certainly give you a home full of...Read More

Monument to the Old Me
Lurking amongst shabby, impenetrable, undergrowth,
cloistered effigy is sheltered from casual view,
languishing, neglected, forgotten... but content.

No longer possessing a name; no longer serving a purpose;
whatever inscription once etched thereupon is
long-since faded, lost to the whimsical wisps of time.

In bygone years, its...Read More

Eclipse Facts and Fancies

When the Moon moves between the Earth and Sun
then comes a rare happening that can stun,
above all a syzygy alliance,
the term from the Greek in astro-science.

Once solar eclipses in history
were viewed as a frightening mystery.
Cultural superstitions abounded
as rumors spread far...Read More

Sunny Seaside
Splish splash splish, sunshine bliss

Crashing waves, glistening summer rays

Of days, at the seaside shore

Longing for more, we reminisce

As waves bellow, so we build

Sandcastles on high, quickening sand running over my hand

Slippery stepping stones across oceanic floors

As ‘She’ sets sail, seagulls...Read More

Wherefrom Enlightenment Dwells
To define innocence in the
countenance of a child's smile
and love's eminence in wildflowers,
conceive infinity in exalted ocean's roar
whilst summer breezes glance splendor
flourishing jasmine and hummingbirds
amidst evermore expansive sunrises,
whence space and time ceases to exist 
thereupon shall enlightenment dwell...Read More

Hallucinatory Prayers
Fallen upon knees in ashes of pipe dreamer’s infatuation 
chimera's collective stardust reigning through macrocosms,
world spins counterclockwise unrealistically bound hiatus
stained glass mirrors fracture in rhetorical opposition,
earthly beings condensed to mere commonplace residue
threadbare allegiances written on worn out constitutions,
idly spinning cogwheels...Read More

God Painted the Heavens
"Divine Masterpiece"

The sky was shrouded dark and spiritless

God thereupon painted the heavens

Mixing and blending amber and lemon hues

with the brightest bright,

flickering fire behind the waves of clouds



then,


drawing a straight line on the horizon  harmonizing color.

Liquid Poetry
  When you find that special someone
who heartily & unconditionally
enraptures each second of every day,
makes life appear to be tangible liquid poetry
fantasies realize reality's passionateness,

toffee eyes midst unveiling wildflowers,
whilst lavishing lush keepsake daisies

Skedaddle
Skedaddle 

Sneakily 
incognito 
Tip-toe 
to her chamber door, 
Whereupon 
it was ajar,
Never ajar 
was it before. 

Cloak and dagger 
I did intrude 
Across her 
chamber floor,
Thereupon 
she was asleep,
Never asleep 
was she before. 

Bold as brass 
I did inquire

From Yon Darkened Keep

There afar in yon darkened keep,
Beyond my casement high,
Stands the stone of an angel lost 
That yet earthly lingers nigh.
The wind blows and the mist flows 
From the graven chill,  
And thus upon she wanders forth,   ...Read More

ABLAZE - Part Four

[Continued from Part Three]



Thereupon the elder gave them all a single cart.
It was tall and broad with gems adorning every part

REVERSED MOMENTS
None knows what signaled him 
Deep down the rim
To get down from the train
As if gone insane 
All on a sudden
Much before the destination
Amidst thunderstorm and torrential rain
Ripping off the existence

Trifling with fear, sadness, guilt
Ignoring the defenses inbuilt
Shutting the books,...Read More

Homo Sapience Sapience
He was born with a bushy round follicle-free head
and walks with two legs, because 
he is a Neanderthal(1) mutant,

for he is a mutational product, 
he is an android(2) not found in the evolutionary tree, 
and that’s why he was so...Read More

Poor Man's Tale
For the first time entered I into

Bright and beautiful,

Caught in wishful thoughts, I

On the whys and analysis my 
family and I face.
