I sit in my home
on the land
that your death
paid for
you would love
to see it
I could
invite you

becoming a grandma
two months before
your death
sitting at the
head of the table
and losing
my anchor
sea change
and drowning
in it

couldn't articulate
to anyone
the rapid
generational leap
and how suddenly
and finally
my perception
had changed
me dizzy

there have been
men I wanted
to introduce
and family members
you haven't seen
moved on
no trace anywhere
even your grave
only pictures, resemblance
and memory

Anything Goes... Hooked!
Posted: 3/14/2007 12:00:16 PM
you can't go wrong to hesitate
and leave, unuttered, thoughts with hate
but leave the smiling thoughts so kind
they're balm that soothes the troubled mind

you may never know your words impact
opinion can be taken as fact
someone could have a sleepless night
when something said was just not right

conversely you could make their day
with something nice you threw their way
a compliment will never cause
in retrospect, uneasy pause

I often find it hard to walk
because I do not walk the talk
my foot is in my mouth you see
and I have only one leg free

so here's advice from one who knows
(spoken from around her toes)
the higher road is the better way
(at least till later on today)...

Polly, Om is right, your writes are super! Om, I love that hands poem, that might be one of my favorites of yours.....


kiss inside my mouth
breathy feathers

kiss inside my wrists
longing service

kiss inside my elbows
infant bent

kiss inside my knees
lover buckled

kiss inside my groin
sex tensed

kiss inside my womb
woman hearted

aha Om, you got a crush, eh?


I am mercury
if you inflict pressure
I scatter

I am primary
inexorably gathering
when you turn away

I am amorphous
I resist adherence
to any but myself

I cohere
with my core bonded
my integrity is restored

I am elemental
I elude comprehension

I can be none other
but left intact
not squeezed

I can react
with your impetus
and show your temperature

what are those little commas and blips? Om, have you indulged in..................... *gasp*...........penis extensions? Or is it like a fish story, bigger with every telling?

Cabin Fever 3/05/07

Chafing against the restraint of winter
Another endless week of grey skies
Barren fields of windblown husks
Internalize feelings of isolation
Neglected flowerbeds nod desolately

Fluctuating temperatures
Embody internal climate
Vitality quickens
Elated by the lengthening days
Recognizing the thaw

Anything goes...from a poet
Posted: 3/24/2007 9:15:51 PM
hey Om, this is just a little ditty from first, last, but I kind of liked it....

undulating in a sensual way
with seven veils went Salome
she won Johns head with her seduction
and won the poor man saint induction

And then there was the vamp Delilah
who was completely full of guile (a)
to make strong Samson lose his strength
while sleeping cut his locks of length

Hiya OM, and all,

Pickles, loved that little ditty up there^^^^, Just had to play off of it!!


The first time……

Moonlight in haze
Of the rising mist
A glass of red wine
The first time we kissed

Slight chill in the air
Soft blanket we clutched
The taste of your lips
The first time we touched

The smell of the pines
The moments begun
The explosion of fervor
As we became one……….

Ok - A little intimidated by all the fabulous poetry proceeding .. lovely and moving .
Love to write but not sure where to place mine so will put it here under.Hope thats fine

Damn I thought I was so good
Could spot a player wherever he stood
But you just slipped right by my screen
You never were just what you seemed

You played my soul, my heart, my mind
The perfect thread you,d always find
Your passions strong, emotions cool
Damn, you played me for such a fool

My love was strong, heartfelt and true
Supported you in what you'd do
Forgot myself, swallowed my pride
And through it all you only lied

Loved the last one -People -

A slave to emotion
Fooling myself with dreams
Hope slipping through my heart
Nothing as it seems

Wanting what cannot be
But grasping all the same
The warm,wet wishes
of my Unreality.

A storm rages through my mind
It lashes at my soul
And holds me still,unmoving
In its brittle afterglow

Stopping in to show some love
and say hello to those above.
Some old and familiar faces
still filling up these spaces.
Good to see you all in here,
big hugs and lots of cheer!

good morning Om.

Pickles, I found your first couple poems inspiring. I am at a crossroads of sorts, contemplating more education for better career choices, and they spoke to me on a personal level. Thank you.....


Simon sits in a sunlight patch
my pick of the litter
fumbling to the edge of the box
he raised his giant kitten head
focused muzzily through milky blue eyes
we fell in love
he is huge now with savage claws
to pet him guarantees pain
claws or poison ivy
as he winds around trees
my holstein of a cat
his fur is kept immaculate

he went missing once
I visited neighbors the entire road
unable to let the coyotes
or vultures have him
half the time he lives
under the neighbors barn
and has taught me,
(like my children)
to love with space
still I love to see
his giant green eyes
and cow kitty face

good ones, guys (and gals).....freckles, I feel for you. Just remember someone's lack of love doesn't mean you're unloveable. It's their problem......


your heart is so cold
it's surface like ice
I skate
carving my name
with blades
to penetrate

Om, I should have credited it to first, last where I posted it previously.......sorry......old age..... I know you like the spare poems, so I thought I'd leave it here. Didn't think you'd be up, a pleasant surprise!

night music

cyclic spectrum of the night
cicada sings insectile song
it rises roundly
ebbs away
the waa waa bar
a wall of noise
for night music

Ls 4/9/07

Think I posted this in Rory's.....senility.......
