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

I AM NOT AFRAID

Standard

I AM NOT AFRAID

Listen…silence is broken

Lone lobo laments his lonliness

In the still of the sultry night

I am not afraid

Moon flowers look to the stars above

Heat lightning foretells the future

Storm a’coming; I feel it in my bones

I am not afraid

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 🙂

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

SPIDER KING

Standard

img_4219

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. 🙂

GHOST DOG

Standard

GHOST DOG

Who are you?

I am Ghost Dog

Why are you here?

To protect you

Where are you from?

Beyond the veil

When did you appear?

When the shadows moved

What should I know?

Unseen entities are real

Who sent you here?

Your spirit guide

Thanks for hosting the Q44, Kim! Great prompt word! 🙂

The image in the photo just appeared on my computer monitor awhile back. It looks like a dog to me, so that’s what I call it…my Ghost Dog. … I don’t know, exactly when it came, but it is always there. It doesn’t matter how many times I clean the screen, it is still there. Anyway, I thought I’d ask it some questions, just to see what comes into my mind. These words are the result.

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/

We had a list of drinking/bar associated words to choose from, making our poem any length.Do not make it about the drinking words. If not using words from the list, make your poem only 33 words or less.

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