Emerald Dress
Emerald Dress 

The dress that you’re wearing is oh so sweet 
from the curve of the neckline to the hem at your feet.  

The color is brilliant as I’ve ever seen 
What a wonderful shade of emerald green.

Premium Member On the day before Christmas
On the day before Christmas
I was shopping in town
just hopping and bopping
and chasing gifts down

With toys for the kiddies
and gifts for my wife
not a care in the world
Just enjoying my life

When suddenly the mall
erupted in clatter
heard someone scream
then heard the...Read More

things
these are
the things
my wife has
no understanding

the grapes 
she eats are
from a vine
that is half

the time
older then
her age and
her christmas

tree was no
bigger than
me before
she adorns

it with lights
that might
have killed
it before

oh where 
are the days 
taken away by 
not time but 

memory

Dead Man’s Shoes

They were leather. 
Black, brown, and green. 
He wore the best, 
as his feet were his weakness. 

He had strong arms, 
strong legs, 
a grasp of iron, 
and could run like 
no ones business. 
not from things,

Premium Member The night before Christmas
‘Twas the night before Christmas and I’ve gone and broken my big toe,
I slipped and fell and injured it, in the freshly fallen snow!
I was carrying the Christmas tree, the one that set alight
Though the chap in the hardware store...Read More

If You Were Still Alive
IF YOU WERE STILL ALIVE

Let me sing a song to the one I love
I shall sing to her glad tidings,
With a voice that will rock the foundations of emotions.
Maybe one day I shall come face to face with her again;

bark
everyone knows
heart telling tales
that get a dog's tail
wagging after being
rescued from abuse

and so the same for
cats and other animals
that grew up or were forced 
to grow up on the shady side of
town not meaning out of the sun

but without love...Read More

Frosty the Snowman
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale they say,
Built by the parents and children.

Frosty sits on the hill with his wife Crystal,
They both wear fashion caps and scarves.

Songs  are written about Frosty,
With his corn cob pipe and button nose...Read More

We were waiting to board a boat when I happened to be blessed
to come across a bench close by the ocean…
this bench was facing west.

With an inscription from a husband to his wife…
now obviously gone
It read ‘Judy, in “All Ways”...Read More

The Unwanted Glance

Look closely at my hand. 
Proudly I display a band. 
It tells everyone in the room, 
I am taken. 
I do not have to say more. 
It is not necessary. 
God is the witness, 
and none shall separate....Read More

Protecting the Small

How do people in power rise, 
when all they are talking about, 
is against everything that can be 
remembered…
taught in school? 

How can people hold high office, 
while the people, the poor around them, 
sink ever lower into...Read More

gone missing
i've lost so
many poems
while typing one
my mind has another

done but then
when I get
back to 
that it

is gone but
that's the
poetics
of life

my wife
didn't know
how to skip a
stone across a

calm pond
so by showing
her she happily did
just that very thing for

over an after
noon as...Read More

Decidedlly NOT the kind of hot dog you'd ever want to eat

Herr Schneider and his Heidi 
Lived a staid and peaceful life
In a suburb prim and tidy,
Free of rancour, free of strife.

One blessing only Heaven denied
To this prosperous married pair
No infant’s laugh or baby’s cry
E’er pierced their household’s air.

As life’s observers,...Read More

Williams Since 1066

First a quick word on Robert the Devil,
whose turbulent  life turned out quite a revel.
He fathered a child on a poor tanner's daughter
then dashed to repent in Jerusalem's quarter,
but on his return, sad to say, he died,
yet he set...Read More

Premium Member Listen to Understand
Running hard from your most inner feeling,
Often forgetting to nurture yourself,
From your truth, you are actually reeling

Putting your emotions high on a shelf,
Living an out-of-touch unfulfilled life,
Originality hidden from self…

Injuring damaged psyche like a knife,
Meticulously hiding your inner light,
Bending to...Read More

How Much Do I Love You My Lady
How much do I love my lady?
Love is not measured by kisses;
Neither is by touching and lusting,
Love is not beautiful neither delicious.
 
Love is pure and natural emotion,
One cannot borrow it or buy it;
How much do I love you, my...Read More

His Right Leg


A note pinned to the thigh reserves it,
the whole cadaver is parceled off.
Legs are a late harvest of the indigent.
Their limbs carry a visual poverty
long after the body is plucked.

In a small room, I separate
muscle groups, filter large blood vessels
