My Hopes, Memories and Dreams

Desperately, seeking Miley

A stained red pout




Bored and boring

…like countless others

Pressed dispassionately

upon the lens

Doe-eyes outlined

in Raven Vixen

belie the shallow pools within

Desperately pleading


external  capture

….just one small glimpse

of plastic perfection

binding an ego

stripped bare

    I think you said it all right there, Colleen.
    She is 18. And has already turned to plastic?
    Oh, my! I guess we all seek perfection in some
    form or another. Let her go hedonistic, and get
    it out of her system while she’s young.

    Of course, she’s not my daughter, and I’m not
    actually advising her to do so. Ya know? 😉 UT

  4. Hi Colleen
    I have read through several of the poems and felt their essence. You have a marvellous ability to capture feeling: obviously you are emotionally intelligent and an intuitive: two highly valued intelligences in the creative world.

    Are you aware of Book Creators Circle in Cairns? I am a member. This is my profile.
