I Heard Strangers Whispering Categories: thereupon, childhood, confusion, death, father, memory, Form: Rhyme
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, dee

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

the small "g" gods. As for the uppercase,

Cat's Meow Categories: thereupon, animal, cat, children, Form: Rhyme

So one...Read More
The mirage of heaven Categories: thereupon, angel, baby, god, heaven, light, marriage, peace, Form: Rhyme

Angels adorned in layers...Read More

Nan Categories: thereupon, emotions, grandmother, relationship, Form: Free verse
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
"The war years...Read More
Corn Soup Categories: thereupon, youth, Form: Limerick
Corn soup heated with some cheese sprinkled on

My letter to a virgin brother Categories: thereupon, care, engagement, love, tribute, woman, women, youth, Form: Rhyme

Monument to the Old Me Categories: thereupon, analogy, art, character, growth, introspection, metaphor, Form: Personification
Lurking amongst shabby, impenetrable, undergrowth,
cloistered effigy is sheltered from casual view,

whatever inscription once etched thereupon is
long-since faded, lost to the whimsical wisps of time.
In bygone years, its...Read More

When the Moon moves between the Earth and Sun
then comes a rare happening that can stun,

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 Categories: thereupon, celebration, childhood, holiday, Form: Free verse
Splish splash splish, sunshine bliss
Crashing waves, glistening summer rays
Of days, at the seaside shore

Slippery stepping stones across oceanic floors
As ‘She’ sets sail, seagulls...Read More

To define innocence in the
countenance of a child's smile

flourishing jasmine and hummingbirds
amidst evermore expansive sunrises,
whence space and time ceases to exist
thereupon shall enlightenment dwell...Read More
Hallucinatory Prayers Categories: thereupon, allegory, conflict, deep, hyperbole, psychological, religion, spiritual, Form: Burlesque
Fallen upon knees in ashes of pipe dreamer’s infatuation
chimera's collective stardust reigning through macrocosms,

threadbare allegiances written on worn out constitutions,
idly spinning cogwheels...Read More

God Painted the Heavens

Mixing and blending amber and lemon hues

flickering fire behind the waves of clouds
drawing a straight line on the horizon harmonizing color.
Blending thalo...Read More

When you find that special someone
who heartily & unconditionally
enraptures each second of every day,

toffee eyes midst unveiling wildflowers,
whilst lavishing lush keepsake daisies
'tween unfurled silken...Read More

REVERSED MOMENTS Categories: thereupon, addiction, adventure, allusion, anxiety, beautiful, culture, dream, Form: I do not know?
None knows what signaled him
Deep down the rim
To get down from the train

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