A cautionary tale about love lost at sea, told from the vantage points of the memory at sea, and an old scotch pine in my yard. Love may fill a heart with its fires at one moment, and at the next strike it cold and unapproachable. Emerging Love is testimony to the incredible power that love has over our lives. 540 words. 18+
Berserkers & Bare Naked Babes
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 3. Price: Free! Words: 820. Language: English. Published: July 5, 2013. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors, Fiction » Anthologies » Poetry - single author
The political climate is changing! Berserkers, a tongue-in-cheek poem about the serious issue of loss of democracy, tells the story as succinctly as I can tell it. The other fiction poem is all about a little trick the ladies can play on their unfaithful husbands - again, a humorous take on a serious issue: Puerile sex obsessions in grown, supposedly mature adults. 18+ for mature themes.

Not knowing is to see clearly; knowing is to see without clarity. In these eight poems I drop back to a knowing point of view, in the hopes of understanding the world and how I fit into it a little better. Written with hesitancy, and comprehensible in only the slightest time, I draw a world in these poems that is doomed to obey the laws of Nature, regardless of what we may wish. (Mature themes.)

I offer the reader fifteen poems, each from a different place on the palette of life. There are things taken too far, things not taken far enough, questions about the reality of love, assertions that things never really change, and of course, a dash of humor here and there. Most of the poems are free verse, with ample use of rhyme to keep things going. A good primer for life on the wild side.

Not only do I leave the interpretations to my reader, I also hope to convey all sorts of grounded and inspiring thoughts. There are profound mature themes and a few sexual references, so I would advise parents to read first, before passing these on to their kids.

There would be no need for hope, were it not for the tragic dimensions of life; and so we hope for many things - and love is at the crux of all we desire. No life can be lived without tragedy; yet, sadly, hope can be lost. To hold onto hope it is necessary to recall what it is we hope for most in this world and beyond - a connection with others through love. Enjoy these four poems, and ponder.

We are implored to seek isolation from others through selfishness, paradoxically, in order to find happiness. How can a person overcome the dictates of self-interest and become fulfilled? By looking within ourselves, and by looking to others, and by looking upwards, we may find the cures for one of the great, dismissed ailments of our age: Personal loneliness. These 7 poems point to the answers.
An Aptitude For Perversity
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 15. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,040. Language: English. Published: February 12, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs
What could possibly be the rules of the game, when perversity rules? These four poems look at the traps of perversity - and the sense of the perverse that can lead a way out of the dream-labyrinth that we are told is reality. Leaning heavily on prose but with poetic flair, An Aptitude For Perversity empowers the poet (and possibly the reader,) to keep their feet planted solidly on the earth.

What is it about life that draws us onward through our days? It is seeing through the eyes of others, enriching ourselves with the experiences and dreams that illuminate other lives. Life as it is seen through the eyes of children, or fish, or partying youth, or a great friend, can give us glimpses of what it is to be free-spirited, and reverential of what is given us. No adult-only content.
The Enemy Thrives Within
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 17. Price: Free! Words: 530. Language: English. Published: April 30, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
Would that we could say to the men who lead our world - "You're fired!" Ah, but our founders, bless their privileged souls, thought it might be wise to let money talk, instead of wisdom. The hollowness of materialism, and the pursuit of power for the sake of abusing it, have eaten at the potentially fruitful tree of democracy. If we are the last generation, we ought to plant seeds.... A poem.
Why Hate Me?
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 18. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,040. Language: English. Published: June 9, 2014. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors, Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry

We are all creatures of feeling within ourselves; music is the universal language of emotion, and so from the serenity of sleep to the cacophony of sounds from around the world, all may be understood as music that fills our beings. These three poems look at the music emanating from within me, the music that surrounds me throughout the day, and the sounds that come from all over. 800 words.

You don't have to keep your love hidden away forever, I have recently discovered. Someone new to my life has filled my being with all the feelings my heart has been waiting to release, all these lonely years. Like an Adam and Eve, we find ourselves in a world lit by intense meanings that we once held to be improbable. These six poems convey what this mature love means in my life. 652 words.

The poem ends with the bard urging us to demand participatory democracy from our increasingly authoritarian governments, and begins with the end of the only true golden age our world has seen - the time before civilization's scourges began to afflict humanity with seemingly endless suffering. Civilization has been a catastrophe, all propaganda and wishful thinking aside, and it needs a re-think.

All 156 poems that I've published in 2013-2014 are here for your amusement, contemplation, and, frequently, for your titillation. The raw energies of pure prose and poetry illuminate worlds of wistful love, tragic personal lives, political quagmire, and philosophical escape. Dashes of humor and sentiment add my own lightness of being. How you feel is how you live, in the end. Adult reading.

These three weird poems offer a different spin on the Dracula legend, this time with the Impaler as an aristocrat of sorts, who descends on the world in an age of darkness, and creates - then feeds on, the suffering of those under his dominion. No adult-only content. ~500 words.
Loyalty

5 star rating at Goodreads .These two poems, The Rewards Of Loyalty and United, We Stand Shoulder To Shoulder are attempts to echo the sentiments I have felt in the hearts of so many I have known over the years.

Series: Memorable Verse, Book 27. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,290. Language: English. Published: April 25, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry
Against the backdrop of a solitary person's life, I use a little number crunching to compose nine poems, each of nine lines. Reading these poems may lead to hope - or to terror, but probably not ennui. The key answer to our dilemma, I think, is practical - but perhaps not possible to engage in these times. Whether beset by problems, or soothed by solutions, strong action is imperative.
The Journey
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 28. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,620. Language: English. Published: April 27, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Biography
Life is full of magic, if only we look first to what is within. We live in a world that tells us meaning, reality and happiness can be found if we look outside ourselves; this is not so, and these poems trace a journey from the freedom of youth, through the prisons of attempted conformity, back to the freedom of adult anarchy. There is no escaping alienation in this world - so be free of spirit.
Necessities
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 29. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,490. Language: English. Published: May 25, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Inspirational
Courage; healthy attitudes towards the self; forgiveness of our own errors and those of others; recognition of the reality of our solitary paths in life; and, as always, the acknowledgement that we live in a world that is hostile to true, deep love. Rather than prose and poetry about love, these seven poems look at what is required in ourselves before we can truly love another person. ~900 words.
Modern Muse
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 30. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,550. Language: English. Published: June 12, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Themes & motifs, Fiction » Women's fiction » General
What would you give to escape the poisonous nature of post-modern love that is foisted upon us as "freeing"? I can only offer a muse of sorts to contemplate the search for a healthy, growing love in this world. The entwining of hearts, the struggle to be loved, and spurning the degradations of false love are covered in these seven poems. There is little explicit content, however I rate it as 18+.
Modern Eros
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 31. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,280. Language: English. Published: August 15, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Gay & lesbian, Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry
All good things come to an end. Faced with the end of my dreams, I woke up and decided to be as brave as some I've known in my life. Who would we be - our authentic selves, or dreary conformists - if we faced the end of everything? These five poems attempt to take on this most important and personal theme, in a way that many, many of us can relate to. Adult themes.
A Growing Darkness
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 32. Price: Free! Words: 740. Language: English. Published: November 16, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Contemporary Poetry, Fiction » Poetry » Canadian Poetry
Mercy on the innocent - and no mercy for those who have murdered and aim to murder. Many won't have a calm night's sleep now until every last terrorist is dead. We in the west have been misjudged - fools equate tolerance with weakness, and now, I am certain, we are going to deliver the knock-out blows to the Islamic State group, Al-Qaeda, and all who wish to terrorize the civilized. Two poems.
Taming The Feral Woman
Series: Memorable Verse, Book 33. Price: $0.99 USD. Words: 1,390. Language: English. Published: November 27, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors, Fiction » Women's fiction » Feminist
I'm perplexed as to what to do about our troubled world. In sixteen poems I try to convey what's wrong with civilization as we know it, and point to hope (unfortunately) rather than concrete solutions that could fix the problems. Civilization has been a catastrophe for women's standing in human society, as well as a failure for human happiness; coincidence? I think not. Adult for strong themes.
