Premium Member I Had Become One of Them
They whispered all about her up and down the workplace.
Crucifying her, even though none of them had one drop of evidence.
I am a rescuer, a defender of underdogs, a devil’s advocate of devil’s advocates
So I refused to get involved.
Worse, I...Read More

The country, people, and the village,
All equal, as if, for the first time, 
All of that gave a fresher image,
Nay, 'tis but a relative vantage.
Save fresh road, to its left bears a sign.

"A few more feet and we will be...Read More

Lost In The Crowd
I stand amidst the crowd listening to them talking very loud
I stand amidst the crowd watching them walking about
I really don’t feel like talking so I moved away from them
And listen to my silent thoughts as they thunder from heaven

Don Key And Muriel
Don Key the Donkey
Was a silly ass
He had big donkey ears
And wore an eyeglass
Looking very dapper
And extremely smart
It was his day off from pulling his cart
He liked going out
And enjoyed a laugh
As I mentioned earlier
He was daft
He dressed up
And looked...Read More

The Curse of a Motor Mower
They’re motives of the weekend - they’re a gardener’s saving grace,
buzzing up and down and ‘round and ‘round cleaning up the place.
There’s nothing like the latest smell of a freshly mown down lawn,
once you ease a hiccup which can cause...Read More

Will You Come
If I ask you to come and get me tomorrow
Would you turn down my request to come?
If I ask you to come and get me tomorrow
Would you lay down your burden and come?
Tomorrow might be sorrow, tomorrow I am free

Memorial at the Carousel
My brother works at a carousel
In a tiny mountain town
And riders come from near and far
Because of its renown.

It mostly brings out smiles
And occasionally tears
But when the music starts, all trace
Of sadness disappears.

Except at a memorial
When someone local’s died.
The ride...Read More

Color Me Orange
Topsy turvy so much of the time. Wretched, weary, worn, and out of line.
Never have been that strong, constantly doing something wrong.                  ...Read More

Late Autumn
It’s a feeling that has no words to describe -
when the late autumn leaves fade color.
Quietly waving a final goodbye 
in the chill as morning mist hovers.

It’s something between a pure feeling of peace 
and a loneliness down to the...Read More

Holding back sweeping leaves
In and out rhythm of breath
Warm inside cold outside
Shadows of light 

Faces on trees 
Cracks to see 
Running wild 
Crisp of  leaves 

Beauty of nature 
Winding path
Green and brown
Up and down 

Boots of mud 
Still those...Read More

Premium Member soft whispers
there are no stars in these beclouded skies
to linger on the edge of darkened nights
no reflections to shine within your eyes
nor moonbeams to gather within my sights

as january's wind encircles me
i lose myself in the depths of my dreams
where breathless...Read More

Premium Member ETERNAL EVENSONG
In her car, the woman in deeepest melancholy sat.
Rain falling, tears falling, splat!

She thought of those many days before.
With many a handsome suitor at her door.

She closed her eyes and she warmly remembered!
Teaching bubbling children in those autumn-hued Septembers.

That cold,...Read More

The Day the Tiger's Rolled into Town
Like a wild fire the orange consumed the crimson;
Rolling over it like a spring tide with a mission;
The orange blazed in parking lots and in stands;
Adornment of the happiest fans in the land;
Backed by a powerful purple wave;
To the onslaught...Read More

When we have something to share
And I can feel a sudden tension flowing in the air
The evening is dry and long with its arrow
And they are getting ready for the song

Waiting in the box
A cow is goaded roughly, into a big steel box,
Eyes bulging from sockets, nose puffing snot,
Butcher pulls a lever, trapping its head tight,
Takes out big heavy pistol, aims it right,
Presses it BANG between, the beasts eyes,
A bolt shoots out, no...Read More

What I Should Do Is Have to Hoe

What I should do is have to hoe,
Up and down then row by row;,
And soil till;
Seeds spill;
Soon things will begin to grow.

When I wash dishes
I look out at my bird feeder,
noticing which political species are best at cooperating,
easy democratic process,
remaining focused on collective nutritional energy gains,
"we're all in this together" feathers of kin kind

And, which are more elitist,
not so good with...Read More

Dreams-Happy New Year
I look up to the sky, while the sun is going down,
A flock of pelicans fly, beyond the seawall mound.
Stars peep out of the dark, from the eastern brim,
The crescent moon marks, streaks of heavenly gleam,

Dream; Dream…I Dream, of a...Read More

The message is in the final decree
