The Cobbler

He cobbled me a conversation

Made of words and phrases

He took me on a wondertrip

To all the magic places

He cobbled me back together

As only he could do

I fell into his conjuring tale,

And away we both flew…

Cobbling juju?

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.

SPIDER KING

Standard

SPIDER KING

Little bath-tub  spider, who lives in the drain,

I didn’t want to shower,and send down the rain

On your head, ’cause then you’d be dead.

I saw you peeking out at me,

Every time I come in to…

P -erhaps you’re content to live in the drain;

An easy escape when you’d dive in again.

But little spider, I’ve watched you grow

Up from a tiny spiderling to a right sized King,

As spiders go, and today you were brave…you didn’t hide

You gave me the chance to give you a ride

Out in the warm, spring-time air,

Maybe you’ll be part of a pair

To congregate, to procreate

Some little spiderlings

I think that’s fair

So, now you see the possibilities

Of living outdoors in the grass and the trees

It’s plain to see, a drain is no place

For a Spider King to embrace.

This is a true story. 🙂

FAKE or REAL?

U F O, flying high

Took a tumbler from the sky

Tipsy-turvy, cannot go

Crashed down on the rocks below

Chaser tried to find some proof

Shaken alien – it was no spoof

This is for dVerse Poets – Poetics – Muse Mixology … https://dversepoets.com/2017/02/07/dverse-poetics-muse-mixology/

Mine was 33 words or less, but I did use words from the list. 🙂

GRANDMA’S CHRISTMAS KITCHEN

Standard

GRANDMA’S CHRISTMAS KITCHEN

One by one

The families come

Kinfolk dear

We all are near

We gather in Grandma’s Christmas kitchen

Cousins at play

New toys this day

No fussin’ or fightin’

It’s all so excitin’

To gather in Grandma’s Christmas kitchen

Turkey is done, and so is the dressing

Grab you a plate, there’ll be no messing (around)

As we gather in Grandma’s Christmas kitchen

Find a seat, chow down, let’s eat

Must open the door, let out some heat

From Grandma’s Christmas kitchen

Now we are full

But feel the pull

Of holiday pies

Oh, my

We all want to eat, those scrumptious sweets

In Grandma’s Christmas kitchen

After coffee and talk

We all must walk

Away from the table, as best we are able

To take leave of Grandma’s Christmas kitchen

We say our good-byes

With sleepy eyes

A most wonderful day

of love, food, and play

In Grandma’s Christmas kitchen

PROMPT NIGHT – TRUTH or FICTION

Standard

***

WHAT IS YOUR TRUTH?

Do you always tell the truth

Or maybe a little white lie

Would you confess your sins on your death bed

Or would you keep them ’til you die

Do you really believe what you’re saying

Or let your untruths fly

Would you always keep on praying

Or finally break down and cry

Truth is stranger than fiction

But only you know which is which

Your perception is only your conscience

Nothing flows without a hitch

Your inner voice will be your guide

If you’re mindful of being truthful,

Then there’s surely nothing to hide

Fabrications will always show through your eyes

It pays to be aware of your actions

Be truthful, be kind, and be wise

CRY FOR PEACE

Standard

For today’s dVerse poetry prompt, we  were asked to free-write for 9 minutes, about a time in your life. From these key words, jottings, and thoughts, we were to write our poem. I did add a few more words to the free-write, to finish. This poem takes place during the 60s and early 70s, a time I remember well.

I’d like to thank the hosts of dVerse, and wish everyone a refreshing, break. Many good wishes for the New Year…see you then! 🙂

CRY FOR PEACE

Flower power everywhere

Peace n Love is in the air

Stringing beads, the more the better

Waiting for an overseas letter

Folk ballads – Dylan and Joan

Writing lyrics, bringing it home

Incense n hazy days

Woodstock dreams n Hippie ways

Smokin’ music n concerts

Take a toke, it never hurts

Peace-niks and Jesus Freaks

Groovin’ to those rockin’ beats

Bell bottoms…iron our hair

Sit-ins, bed-ins, see you there

Make love, not war

What on Earth are we fightin’ for

Cry for Peace our battle cry

Does that make sense, I ask you…why

Met n married, 19…smart?

War torn, a year apart

Continue on as best I can

Scared to see an official sedan

He comes back, my true love

How I praise heaven above

Baby born/baby dies

Only seen once, with my crying eyes

Carry on our wayward life

War never ends, still there’s strife

And still we cry without cease

Still we cry

We cry for Peace

STAR DIAMONDS

Standard

STAR DIAMONDS

Listen to me now

I’ll tell you how

A diamond got it’s

Shine

In the faraway time

There was a great sign

Deep space yearned for

Light

With a wave of His hand

The Creator of man

Tossed glittering stars

Above

And when this occurred

With only a Word

Diamonds were made for

All

They sometimes fall down

All the way to hard ground

Precious gemstones for all

Mankind

This was written for dVerse poets. The suggestion was to write about stars.

LOST

Standard

LOSTdecorative-fractal-spiral-1417604016fGo

Looking inside my mind

Lighthearted thoughts I find

Laughing at what I see

Leaving reality

Labels – not to be bound

Lost…and hope to be found

Losing it, I un-wind…

This is another poem in the Pleiades form. It was fun to do, earlier, so I wanted to do another 🙂

This is also for the Open Link Night brought to you by dVerse Poets. Their page can be found here

UNFINISHED

Standard

DSC00228

UNFINISHED

Quietly, quietly drift the clouds

Far above Earth’s rowdy crowds

THUNDER

Parading stately across the sky

Painting paradise in our eye

CRASHES

Take a moment to gaze above

Fill your senses with peace and love

LIGHTNING

Imagine floating without a care

Our mortal souls are free up there

FLASHES

Beauty does our eyes behold

Orange, pink, and nature’s gold

WIND

Sunrise, sunset, and in between

Starry nights, a moonlit gleam

GNASHES

Dream along, embracing peace

Praying for all war to cease

ANGER

Pure air inhale, life’s true incense

Live and love your truth…intense…

LASHES
