A Death In The Desert

The desert sand that was cold at day-rise grew hot and hotter as the day progressed. Accustomed to this kind of change; it did not complain. It did not need any cover.

Lazy Bird
A bird perched in a leafy tree
Looking all around
It spied a big fat juicy worm
Wriggling on the ground

This lazy bird kept looking
At the worm from up the tree
And thinking dreamily
I'll have that worm for tea

The worm was oblivious
Of that lazy...Read More

The Intelligence Of Tuna
There where the tuna sleep mighty
Wet as usual imprisoned in ocean
There are creatures above with poles
The oxygen nitrogen breathers 
The ones with limbs on their sides
With eyes facing front fashioned to hunt
Beings that live in the thin environment
Trying to take...Read More

Slug Aviator
Crimson baron,
the scarlet fumes from your tale pipe
paints the sky 
with steel blue dye

Duke of the corporeal death plane,
your splatter reign
brings a barrel of spitfire pain

As you hide in the cadaver clouds,
waiting to vulture dive 
like a mercenary bird of...Read More

Premium Member What A Cat Leaves Under The Tree For Santa
It’s Christmas Eve and I must catch,
fish for Santa to fix from scratch.
Surely there’s a fish who will snatch;
fresh worm from batch, fresh worm from batch.

I know he’d love delicious trout,
now, that’s something to shout about;
I hope this water’s not...Read More

Premium Member Reality Check
A kangaroo in dungarees hops hopefully 
	To win first prize in the Favs contest hot
		On the heels of an enlightening glow worm

Surely life is no competition but the stage lights
	Reverberates all the promising contenders
		Reincarnation oils the wheels of the jury

My Blured Hope

My patience is the hand break of a vehicle

my mango tree
My shaggy crown is windblown, and eaten by the white worm
Yet it still curls in cascades atop and around my trunk: unruly

The Brown Phoenix
Doubly twisted
Hating thine existence
tremors of a neurotic hand
Violent and bitter
Consumed by Ashen sands

Like the phoenix

Rebranded
Undoubtedly divine
My wings transform to arms
My beak into lips

I walk amongst the giants of the land 
Hands stretch outwards towards yours
Like a Superman in...Read More

that string
the one the nestlings thought a worm
blows listless on the wind
as clapboards rattle
on withered dreams

a silence calls
passing clouds
