Multi Chambered prism,
light.............................
dark............................
color bursts of human
emotions, releasing a
rainbow beyond storms,
savage, gentle,
cleansed by rainwaters,
emitting from it's nucleus
............................pure
............................LOVE!

Like a blade
who thrust deep,
you took me
Mo gradh.

The steel is sharp
the light blinding.
It has become quiet;
Mo gradh.

Two hearts
entwined
together lie;
Mo gradh.

In your arms,
I lived,
and died
Mo gradh.

Bathed in her warm steel light
i walked to my window
on that night
senseless grin.

Alone
wishing that we
could become as one
senseless grin.

Hurt, bite and tear
it did indeed at me
stare
senseless grin.

Hopes and wishes
clashed to the
rugged shore
senseless grin.

Naked and alone
letting her kiss me,
after you were gone
senseless grin.

Touch of steel
yet warm and inviting
my body ached
senseless grin.

Looked at you
inspiring, with longing
my heart ached
senseless grin.

Warrior, amazon
naked I stood
letting you kiss me
senseless grin.

No more fight
no more games
you win...
with your senseless useless
senseless grin.

Hey "loveis" looky who's back? Nice to see you again, been a while! Welcome to the fireside. Lovely writes too! My thanks to you.

Jameless....nice to see you also. Looking back a page, I hope there's no tension in the two personalities there.

Everyone is welcome here, but just a reminder, no ill will is to be displayed on these pages. It will be dealt with quickly.

thank you Loveis a hug for your flattery!

In shallow winds,
hidden in mist,
white winged warblers
twist.....singing songs
of mating,
waiting
for their chirping love
to echo in response.

Winter promises to change the landscape
I travel, each, every, each, every day.
Yet one little favour comes this way
Singular, dead, colorless tree
backed up feet, yards, kilobites
from the mighty Columbia
Loving, dead tree, perches the majestic
juvenile, mastered, elegant eagle.
Four of each and every the other morning.

Hiya 60 to 70, long time no see....love the write. Always nice to see you.

There was a snowboard,
sitting in the snow,
attached to my feet,
just so you know.

First the left foot,
then the right one went in,
strapping them up,
was the cardinal sin!

The board started sliding,
through no fault of my own,
with the look on my face,
Oh God, where's my phone??

As the board picked up speed,
and a tree straight ahead,
wrote my will in the snow,
cause I knew I was dead!

my mind pushes snow,
clears a patch of bay ice.

I've heard it so often,
the leafs season is dead
the team is just rotten
put a bag on your head
I'm used to the chatter
I've heard it before
the only thing that matters
is that they learn how to score

Our strings that tie;
family, friends
pull tight to gather
at this table to blend
Thanks relayed
in pondered thought,
not such a challenge
as I look at this lot
The day itself,
though times are rough
brought us all together
and that is enough :)

Happy Thanksgiving Manly and Co.

Hiya BKS, glad you dropped by, every day is a blessed day! [hugs]

Tho I am, what I am,
what I am, cannot be,
tho you are, who you are,
what you are, cannot see,
tho we are, who we are,
you are you, and I am me,
and yet alone, here we stand
without love, eternally!

The Last Post!

Deep in the bowels
of the concrete jungle,
a forgotten civilization
of one, resides in silence,
and here, under an ebony moon
in a starless sky,
a lowly light,
breaks a bitter night,
a barrel and a bottle
warm a broken soul,
yet he manicures
his cardboard chalet,
standing vigil both
night and day,
the only incantations
are of hunger and plight,
the anonymous cries
fall on deaf ears,
cause nobody hears
the bugle.

By dawn's early light,
wiping sleep from his eyes,
he salutes to the flag,
which he still proudly flies,
from the roof
of his cardboard
chalet.

Yet, nobody sees!

Once fiercely Marine,
a soldier and Dad,
and that's why this story,
is always so sad.

Leave no man behind!
and home they all came,
now he is foresaken,
his own country to blame.!!

water soaking the ground
large puddles creating a pond
another day of rain comes pummelling down

the sky an eerie shade of grey
where night is slow to enter day
with wind blowing a northeasterly

thanksgiving was a day of work, then family
gathering with many unexpectedly and briefly
feeling love-filled laughter so gratefully

but now the sky is hardly light
one cat nestled in my lap
watching with me as the rain falls

My nephew is in Afganistan right now. He is due to arrive home for Xmas, so we all have our fingers crossed and praying for his safe return.

In Afghanistan the morning has come
The children arise and again feel safe
Our soldiers are there to keep them from harm
Our soldiers have died to stop their alarm
Remember the beheadings in the stadiums so cruel
Remember their tears and imagine its you
The suicide bombers the campaign of hate
Twin towers so high with a terrible fate
And what would it be if we left them unfree,
A miserable state, without no debate
The children will cry and feel so unsafe
Our soldiers lives a waste of their all
To leave them now would be so cruel
But worst of all is doing nothing at all

I tried the fried bread when I was In Bognor Regis,
many years ago....Just a little heavy on the fat though, almost did me in! Talk about heartburn!

A log burns in darkness,
just candles and me,
a book in my hand,
and you on my knee.

As I read from the pages,
in soft voice at rest,
relating sweet prose,
of only the best.

as another night has drawn
to a close.....................
goodnight, sweetdreams,
warm toes.
