Poem of Dreaming

Some may say she’s perfect
She’ll tell you otherwise
Aware that she has faults
There’s no need for disguise

Her shy smile and brown eyes
Each melt my heart away
Plus, an inner beauty
She’s more than just okay

The time to share is now
While in the Spring of life
And were my wish fulfilled
Come Fall, she’d be my wife

Yes, I know I’m dreaming
Though hope to see the light
Thinking of her daily
And wanting what feels right

Of course, a few things would need to change. For starters, it certainly would be nice if she’d remove my name from being blacklisted on her site at WordPress. It would also be charitable if my emails were no longer filtered into her trash bin. And, on occasion, she could use Twitter to read some of the messages & comments I’ve left for her. Perhaps, as an act of goodwill, she might like a single post on my web site…sometime. Lastly, if she would refrain from associating my name with the term ‘devil’ – I think that would be helpful, too. Barring these few exceptions, the future looks bright!!!

Yes, I know I’m dreaming.

Eye of An Orange Alien

No, this is not the Kool Aid character from television advertisements in the 1970-1980’s. Nor is it an alien from outer space, though that was the visual impression I had following creative modifications made to the photograph of an automobile. You can visit my shops online at Pixels and Society 6 to discover some cool products with this design.

Nexus-7 Replicant


Rachael was beautiful with bright blue eyes, soothing voice and a personality unlike any I’d experienced in my entire life. I loved her with every fiber of my being. But, she was a machine…

Dreaming At High Tide

Beach Comber

Water rolls in with the moon at high tide, as stars flicker behind a curtain of space.

I can sleep through this dream until morning, then collect seashells and treasures of ships sunken centuries ago.

The beach is my tomorrow. The moonlight, a distraction.

Short Story: She’s A Dream

Based on a recent comment I made on the web site of a friend, I wrote this short story this morning. Entitled, She’s A Dream, I hope that you’ll enjoy reading it.


I rested on a tropical sandy cay, comfortable in a low seat with my bare feet in warm, shallow water. Small waves carried the tranquil and continuous rhythm of ocean currents on shore, breaking into sand and drowning in retreat.

With a cooling but mild summer breeze rustling palm fronds through the trees on shore behind me, I dreamed I heard a British woman from the past – Clementine – sounding a conch shell from a hillside in the distance.

I was at peace as the sun grew old, slowly dropping from the sky, setting colors of gold, orange and peach in brilliant illumination across scattered clouds on the horizon. Then, on the edge of time, sunlight refracted through a level plane in the ocean, casting a bright, blinding green flash!

Moments passed into minutes, until my sight returned. And, then I saw her – the silhouette of a beautiful woman slowly walking along the shoreline in my direction. Long, flowing hair wafting on thermals, hips swaying slightly with each casual step, I could tell that she wasn’t very tall, and watched closely as she approached.

She was barefoot with a lovely figure, suntanned, wearing a bikini top and fishnet skirt, and also wore a small diamond piercing on her nose. Immediately, I was drawn to the most beautiful pair of brown eyes I’d ever seen…she was a goddess!

I was captured by a vision of her beauty, when suddenly she spoke –

Hello my dear friend, Phil. How are you today?

What?! I’d never seen this woman before – though very much wish that I had. Who was she? I was on a remote tropical island in the Caribbean… At that moment, a small coconut detached from a palm tree, dropping on my head and knocking me to the ground.

When later I regained my senses, I was alone and realized that she was only a dream.
