MASTER OF MISCHIEF

MASTER OF MISCHIEF He ambles in woods to water his wit and spies a pixie who pipes and jigs. The dulcet notes soar; a gusty wind stills The lime boughs doze; rapt birds perch mute. A silver veil parts; a twisty pen floats Its glow is ruby; its nib spouts tales that swell with puns, wild plots to... Sign in to see full entry.

NEMISIS MURMURS

NEMISIS MURMURS My muse is mauled; it flails in blood The green god sneers; his black fangs snarl. He whips his tail; I reel and plunge to choke in ash and boil in fire. I wail for Eden; that realm of bliss A holy horn blasts; an angel beams light. The glare bites beasts; their roar rends earth But... Sign in to see full entry.

BELLOW FOR BRITAIN

BELLOW FOR BRITAIN I bellow for Britain; our people are trussed and throttled by boas in the State's thrall. Stars hollow in wisdom they gild and exalt Our TV seeps marrow; words wilt in drought. I curse that musac; it pummels the will to muse in repose cocooned from the fray. Woe to your torpor;... Sign in to see full entry.

TERROR IN PESHWAR

TERROR IN PESHAWAR A bomb blast roars; the maimed throngs wail Blood and dust spew; how the corpses amass! Gnarled body parts steam in sun and fire The sirens strike dread; their moan a dirge. Whole families are shards; the mothers who salved will fester in earth; no mirth for babes. A woman with... Sign in to see full entry.

YELLOW IRIS

YELLOW IRIS I stroll through glades; I hear birds trill The scent of cherry drifts in the air Buds yawn and sigh for the sun's caress A comely nymph sings and bids me attend a union of hearts that true love ordains. A mighty oak shades my beau who inclines his Nordic fair head and bestows his gift... Sign in to see full entry.

BROKEN BRITAIN

BROKEN BRITAIN He slams the door; a curse he growls The drink reeks sour; his eyes flash crazed A hurled chair thuds; a woman's voice howls Her face is pulped; the idyll love razed. The taste of terror propels him to taunt with words that foam and rend like fangs. Upstairs her boys cower; wraiths of... Sign in to see full entry.

WISH LIST FOR THE TORIES

WISH LIST FOR THE TORIES Clout with steel law orc mobs who ravage The victim raise high; their gored rights redeem And desk bound boche oust from power savage. Young minds rot fallow and sink in esteem So cull the tests that hack true skill Claw back tough study to tax and inspire. The dole mired... Sign in to see full entry.

THE ECSTASY

THE ECSTASY Of the foaming cascades of praise I partake They roar to surge through sinew and vein. My senses are doused and bold dreams awake The rainbow hues whirl in shapes that chain. My eyes spark crystal; like spirits I glide immune to time's pulse; the tempest's dread sword. Oh torrent parch... Sign in to see full entry.

THE VISIONARY

THE VISIONARY At visions I gaze; to heights I ascend My visage is vibrant; beams of gold probe a myriad of musings for gems that transcend the vapid and frayed; this verse to robe in the mode esteemed by scribes who honed their gift in garrets with ink and quill. How my soul swells; the ornate is... Sign in to see full entry.

A MATCHLESS GIFT

A MATCHLESS GIFT A holy light bathes the ragged barn drear God's angel glides forth the Christ to present. The Virgin's eyes mist; His words are austere To nails and jeers she bows her assent Her spouse is rapt by the grace foretold. A herald of Heaven proclaims the Lord's reign Poor shepherds He...
