Premium Member If I Have The Time and Inclination
If I have the time I’ll cook your beef,
Clean your kitchen, fix you a pie.
Sit and listen, sigh and cry.
Be your best friend, to both our relief.

If I have the inclination I’ll be there.
To mend your argyle socks and sweep...Read More

25cc Moped
25cc Moped
The 25cc moped was so very cool
It had a two stroke 25cc engine
A full body fairing with space 
Under the seat for the rider’s helmet
Was fitted with bright LED lights
And a neon digital display for the speed
Not to mention...Read More

Mother and Angel

What thoughts gather in your mind, Mary,
 Eyes looking down in the morning light?
Do you still hear the sound of an angel’s voice –
 Can you hear the sound of angel wings?

God’s light shines through you, simple handmaiden;...Read More

Cloudy Skies
a gray day greets
them and there
are no salutations
returned except 
the growls of 
hungry bellies
sighs crystalized
by cold glances
declining temperatures
a home built for 
none housing three
a stream of heat
rises from the 
left corner and
they gather 
a pair of 
twenty-something
hands reach into
a pocket...Read More

Ursids
Ursids
radiant lights
December meteors
in their ecstatic nighttime flight;
a waning moon will not halt their travel
comet Tuttle left them behind
their annual flight’s bright;
Ursa Minor’s
Ursids.

Drink The Elixir Of Dharma
Song on the wind; an ethereal composition can 
penetrate the soul; a spark and combustion 
reveals the fire of enlightenment.

Spirit awakens to face the universal mind, 
on its god-flight.  
Platinum wings unfold and against a background of 
golden light;...Read More

A Baffling Question

Who do you say built the pyramids?
If you believe as many do that aliens did,
then please consider soberly
glaring objections to your theory.

First, the question of space travel,
specifically the means and how possible?
If from as yet an unknown planet,
in which galaxy...Read More

Breaking News from the North Pole

This shocking news from the North Pole:
Santa’s toyland headquarters is now a hole
filled with global warming Arctic waters.
But don’t despair, bigger and better quarters
are being built secretly in Antarctica 
with plans calling for it to be a replica
of the sunken...Read More

The Happy Fisherman
Sailing with my true blue friend,
Every wave was a new lesson to learn
Every storm, a new chapter to open;

Listening to its deep voice,
Every story was a reverie to follow
Every silence a whisper of love;

Guided by the wind of my destiny,
Every...Read More

Premium Member Flying to Manchester
"This is the best time of the day,"
The taxi man said,
"Before those buggers go to work.
Half an hour's time
You couldn't drive down here."
"I wouldn't want to."
I replied, looking up at the clear air,
Signatured with vapour trails,

And wishing Manchester
Were Singapore or...Read More

Premium Member Predictable

If I say turn left,
he's sure to go right.
If I say let's drop it,
he'll just want to fight.

The few times he asks me
to go out to eat,
he wants the one restaurant
I like the least.

If on a vacation

Around The Universe
Like the wind
stars love to travel
celestial
journeying
exotic vacationers
racking up mileage.

Occasionally
a brief stopover
induces
a star to
settle down in a new place
happy as a lark.

Slipping and sliding on glazed, snowy roads
No plows in sight and no sand to unload
Maybe no-one paid their taxes this year
The roads may be this bad for miles I fear
I am gripping the steering wheel, very tight

Premium Member The strange tale of Ingleburry Lane
In 1878, a gent carrying a cane,
Walked at 6 o’clock, down Ingleburry Lane,
A cobbled street, parading horses and carts,
Where gas lights are placed fifty yards apart.

In 2019, a gent with a phone
Walked down Ingleburry Lane, all alone.
Past the coffee shops...Read More

Whispers of 1944
Two rails and some broken boards. The train no longer runs through here.
Trees have wrapped themselves around memories of time and the past.
The rails shiny yet old and the boards rotted.
Leaves and the homes of small beings scatter across the...Read More
