Chased in Dragons

Falling, pleading succeeding in accuracy

Make out night gowned felony

A crime not drawn intensity

Stick to the focus

Spell under hypnosis

A magnetic pull, a psychosis

Melodrama in process

Poem of the Day – A Bawling Dream

Paintings now at


A Bawling Dream


Packed in blinding hot boxes on wheels

Stolen away; a breath a day

Gasping in unison with choked birds singing

Thinking of black and white cover photos

Not knowing

The implications

Paintings now at


Eerie Sea


Awkward silence: the peace a violent under performing scream

Slicing cobwebs from the ceiling

Feelings crumble in just about time to make the clock

Poem of the Day – Slide in Passing Light

Paintings now at


Slide in Passing Light


Stripped of guns, the shots no longer biting:

Exciting only to the man counting the money.

The neighbours’ wealth dripping in calumny.

Some will see

A doubting Thomas built in me

Beams of Treasure


Pencil driven

Scrubbing imagination

Again rattling in tins

While chins wag with auspicious ideas.

Poem of the Day – Spreading Dresses

by paturnerlee

Spreading Dresses


Fleeced by shaven heads; beating drums, pumping hearts.

Apart from chilled skin; frayed cloth flaps in the wind,

Skinned alive like burning caverns: cracked open by the heat.

Poem of the Day – Trapped in Tins

by paturnerlee

Trapped in Tins


Skin flints the lot of them

Too tight for their trousers

Hows’ they got the nerve; or even deserve

A listening post

The most gifted whistle blower: who’d know her flashing teeth

Poem of the Day – Gripped in Seasons

by paturnerlee

Gripped in Seasons


Picked in singing yellow; an outing to a window

Seen now as a public relation guru

Sat under a fee; questioning the latest target

Set inside an answer: sheet twisted and tangled

Burning up the budget

Poem of the Day – Jagged Hedges

by paturnerlee

Jagged Hedges



Scarred tissue an issue for the mother

Another scandal to handle; dismantle


Educated in bath tubs

Bubbles in dreams:

Smothered in salty creams

To scrape the dirt from torn skin

Fiercely embattled;

Poem of the day – Picked up Presence

by paturnerlee

Picked up Presence


Fly tip: stripped of personal possessions

A median measured: just part of a whole

A crescent moon, turning to an audience

Poem of the day – Sprayed Intense

by paturnerlee

Sprayed Intense


Blown up balloons; open salutations; bending low in separate dreams

Schemes on settees with warm squeezing hands

Plans for further involvement;

Frozen in pyjamas

The ones with strings attached.

Poem of the Day – Balls Over

by paturnerlee

Balls Over


Crystal gaze shattered with consequence

Underneath a table

A dog lies; telling stories

Breaking templates with broken heels

Fresh grown gowns smothering cream that the cat licked up

Flaked Window


Tinkering with locks: busting open

So you can see the light; the fracture

Enact the vision.

Poem of the Day – Cleaver assumption

by paturnerlee

Cleaver assumption


Blade: stand to attention

A building blasted and commended for its curves

Nerves tender with crowds of sniffers roaming the streets

Looking for adoration

Testing calls

Entering empty black holes

Now full of temperament

Poem of the Day – Chapel Creak

by paturnerlee

Chapel Creak


Bagged up belief; crushed in ice

Breaking light; an opening door

A law to itself; bulging and squeezing

Certain not pleasing; growing in the water

Hanging barnacles,

Scraped from ships; for funeral windows

Covered in sheets to cover the able

Poem of the Day – Talking dripping riddles

by paturnerlee

Talking dripping riddles


Flash photography driven:

Reflecting black window vehicles

Cynical plywood fantasies wouldn’t be an issue

As tissue damp with rain from broken gutter spreads mustard seeds burning.

Poem of the Day – Practical Battle

by paturnerlee

Practical Battle


Dug out and about: in town: in trunks

Bevelled sequinned suits:

Shining in sun day best

A request for a leaving party; as glasses break in two,

Or three. To many to count.

Poem of the Day – Bloated Sea

by paturnerlee

Bloated Sea


Chuckle at winter thoughts; turning to Spring

Singing songs that mean more to mermaids than shells

Telling tales to whispering winds.

Things in bell towers ringing; true to the sun.

Completing the blood slit treat

Spending whisky a go go dancing decibels and burger bar banter

Displaced; washing winds away

Corked eyes misty and sick of feeling.

Poem of the Day – AHTUF PATROL

by paturnerlee



Stale crusts, broken from edges of time:

Dry ripped and bitten.


Sitting in windows bleating

Whistling tunes to bar telling salesmen

Selling chisels for cleverly accounting wizards.

Scraping juice frozen on glass topped mountains.

Checked and crusty; wrapped in foil

Lining the out of body experience

In certain decision making appearance

We part in heart breaking silence

Poem of the Day- Grain of choice

Grain of Choice


Held in broken silence; a breath

A torn tissue left

Blood in channels flowing

Going to the window

That’s showing eloquent features.

Bucket Lump




Piles of pockets torn;


Crushing crest fallen penance


Because we dreamed of picked out harmonies


Charming trees that whistle in the wind:


Tunes with meaning.

Poem of the day – Absolute

by paturnerlee



Freezing, captured; falling for a crest of a wave

To stay: in wind curling white as the crinkled lace curtain flutters

Stained with yellow time

Felled because the inside is rotten

Forgotten the impact of a decision

Crushed Apron


Slim chance and slovenly dressed: she staggers in tatters

Flattened papers dancing in the light of the window.
