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

Coffee Break

Standard

Coffee Break

COFFEE BREAK

Saucered and blowed,

Saucered and blowed

Sit down, relax

Put down your load

Puckers and sips

‘Tis hot on your lips

Have some more

But watch out for drips

Strong and black or

Creamy and sweet

A cup of coffee can’t be beat

Saucered and blowed,

Saucered and blowed

Refreshment and rest has

Now been bestowed

***

note – saucered and  blowed refers to the practice of pouring a little bit of your hot coffee into a small saucer, blowing on it to cool it down, then sipping from the saucer.

Night Flight

NIGHT FLIGHT

 

~DSC00205

Winter looms.

Under cover of dark midnight they fly,

Casting shadows on the silvery pond far below.

Silent stars guide from above.

Gracefully gliding, circling lower, they murmur their relief at journey’s end.

The geese have arrived.

Their migration completed, they

Wait for spring.

Thanks for the prompt word, De!

Wishing y’all a fun weekend!

Here’s a fun thing I’ve been messing around with today. It’s Google Poems. Have you every tried it?

You know how when you do a search, Google will do that automatic fill in thing, of what you might be looking for? Well, some in the list are pretty funny, so it’s a thing to make it into a poem. Some I’ve taken straight off the list, while others I’ve skipped around with different search words.

Here’s some I did:

###

Don’t let the pigeon drive the bus

He’s a pirate who said

Birds of a feather flock together

Whoosh – let it go

###

Sometimes we stumble where shadows stand

Sometimes we tell the truth

Sometimes we put up walls

Sometimes we need a break

###

I could use a love song

I come to the garden alone

I could only imagine

I couldn’t sleep

###

Why will the world end

Because the night isn’t what it’s cracked up to be

Why will message not activate

Isn’t life strange

INTO THE NIGHT

A gleam in my eye

I gaze at the sky,

A yearning I can’t explain…

My souls cries out,

A silent shout,

Bereft, I wait in pain.

So far away,

The Milky Way,

This place in the vast unknown,

Someday they’ll call,

And I will fall,

Into darkness that is my home.

Into the night

I will take flight

To stars I did behold…

I dreamed to dare,

And sailed through the air…

My soul will forever unfold.

Just Jot It January – Pants

Standard

Just Jot It January – Pants

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 8th, 2018

***

Today’s prompt word, ‘pants’, is suggested by Pensitivity 101 … and she can be found blogging at: https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/

***

Pants, pants, wonderful pants

The looser they fit

The better you dance

Pants, pants, wonderful pants

Yogas and leggings are stretchy

When you pose in a trance

Pants, pants, wonderful pants

Denim or khaki or sweatpants – your choice

Whatever the style, just make a stance

Pants, pants, wonderful pants

Bell-bottoms, plus fours, stovepipes, and flared

Vintage or trendy, go forth and prance
