Poems I write, and learn to write in different forms.

Tingle My Tongue

Standard

“Tingle My Tongue”

Ooh-wee

Bliss-ter-ing me

With your hot, hot kisses

Roasting fire sparks and hisses

Tickle my nose with scorched delight

Pepper my brow with sweat, tonight

A slow burning heat just can’t be beat

Hot shivers of chili, a passionate treat

Tastes of bliss

***

For dVerse Poets – Quadrille 44 Words

Use the word bliss in your poem.

DREAMTIME

Standard

DREAMTIME

Flicker me a smile

With your eyes, beguile

Perchance to dreamtime

Throw me a lifeline

I’m drowning in your love

Flicker your touch upon my cheek

You are everything, all I seek

I’m drowning in your love

Flicker your love light

Save me, love

CAUTION! WEIRD POST AHEAD!

Standard

CAUTION! WEIRD POST AHEAD!

On  a hot summer night, I was up in the stands at a race-car event. The track was huge, and cars were zip, zip, zipping past, sounding like mosquitoes. I watched them for awhile, but also kept looking up at the dark sky, like I do all the time, looking at the stars. As usual, I kept hoping a UFO would show itself.

Suddenly, I did see movement in amongst the stars, and it seemed to be getting closer. It was just a bright, little light, but was moving very fast toward us, here at the race. It got closer, still, until it was right above the track, and it began circling around, just like the fast race-cars. It was an even faster blur. It seemed to be a small jet plane, like an Air Force jet. How it could zoom around so super fast, I don’t know. Everyone watching from the stands were amazed.

After a couple of turns around the track, it took off, back into the dark sky. We watched until it was just a small, bright speck of light, again. However, just before we lost sight of it, we saw a giant explosion up in the sky, shooting orange flames, miles high.

Writing down a dream

Nothing is as it seems

Writing down a dream

There’s a message, but what does it mean?

ooo – ooo – ooo – ooo

Writing down a dream

Remembering every scene

Writing down a dream

Visions are quite extreme

ooo – ooo – ooo – ooo

STORMY

Standard

STORMY

I named him Stormy, King of the World

My best friend, when I was a girl

I cried and cried when Stormy died

No longer was he by my side

Now, nothing could ever be the same

Never more to call his name

Stormy

for dVerse Poets – use the word storm or any variation in your poem

SOUL SOUNDS – for dVERSE POETS

Standard

SOUL SOUNDS

I feel the sounds of quiet nights

Deep within my soul

I thrill to trills of cricket’s chirps

A symphony so bold

I listen to the stars on high

Pulsars emitting silent sighs

I hear breathing, soft breezes blowing

Our souls are all knowing

19 MILES to BAGHDAD

Standard

19 MILES to BAGHDAD

19 miles to Baghdad,

I don’t feel so all alone…

Sometimes I get to talk to you,

Via the video-phone.

19 miles to Baghdad, and

I’m writing you this postcard,

Just to take away the fear…

Actually, it’s not so hard.

19 Miles to Baghdad, and

One thing I’ll never hear,

Is G.I.s writing home to say,

Wish you were here.

19 Miles to Baghdad, and

This I’m proud to say…

We’re over here protecting you all,

in the whole U. S. A.

#####

As blossoms bouquet

A smell of dirty, red wind

Immense bombs stagger

DRIZZLE A RAINBOW

Standard

DRIZZLE A RAINBOW

Drizzle a rainbow, shiny and bright

Let us rejoice in that wondrous sight

Drizzle a rainbow, in the bluest of skies

A schmear of colors excite our eyes

Gaze upward, outward, refresh your mind

Drizzle peace and tranquility

Over all mankind

Drizzle a rainbow

6:29 a.m.

If I was the me now, back then,

I’d have to remember when you asked for the Skyy

I asked why, and gave you a

Buttered Moon and honey

Just bring lots of quarters for money…

na na na na na … na na na na na

Your Words into a poem, my rose

You’re the light bulb to my verse and prose

Come joyride down our memory’s lane

There’s no one left to blame

na na na na na … na na na na na

***note*** this poem came about from a conversation on Face Book. I had permission to change the words around to form a poem. I do think you can find poetry anywhere you look. The title is taken from the time I was reading the FB comments 🙂

GHOST WITH AQUAMARINE EYES

Who would I be, if not me anymore

Stripped of my being, right down to the core

I’ll open tomorrow with an arrhythmic swallow

Banish the sad, the tepid, and follow

For awhile, for a season, on the calendar year

An affirmation that I hold dear

With a flourish, a shout, a cursive flair

I’ll be the Ghost, I’ll still be there

Myself as myself, there are no lies

I am the Ghost with Aquamarine Eyes.

WHINNY at the TREE FROGS

Standard

frog-306577__340

WHINNY at the TREE FROGS

Giggle me a moonbeam

Right around midnight

Snicker me some fireflies

I promise they won’t bite

Light sparkly fireworks

With a chuckle and a hiss

Whinny at the tree frogs

Then give me a little kiss

Giggle me a midnight

Within the moonbeam’s light
