This is a poem I wrote back in 2015.

I was using the rhymed couplets to show peace, and the capitalized middle words to show anger that that after all this time, there is still war. – unceasing and never finished. Also by using words of nature showing how it can be peaceful and lovely days at times, and violent stormy days, too.

blue sky with pink clouds shaped like a wishbone

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

Christmas Memory # 9 – Charlie the Tree

Christmas Memory # 9 – Charlie the Tree Click to view

***

For the days up until Christmas I’ll be sharing some short memories of Christmases past that I remember.

***

We’ve had a lot of Christmas trees over the years. Sometimes they were real trees, sometimes artificial. The one we had the longest was Charlie. Yes, we named this one. We thought he was cute and the name seemed to fit.

He wasn’t very tall, and he was artificial, but he lived with us for many years. Only about 3 feet tall, but looked happy when all decorated.

For awhile we seemed to go with a themed type decor. I can’t remember them all, but once we had a Mexican motif going. We bought wall posters, and real sombreros, and lights shaped like jalapeno peppers. That was fun.

Here’s a couple of them. The first photo we just had a natural look, with strings of pine cones, and red beads. I think there were little red birds on there, too.

The next photo was our rock ‘n roll Charlie. There were lots of pink decorations, a pink feather boa, and some sunglasses up top. Also there was a pink car, and pink flamingos. We had wall decorations of a jukebox, and cardboard record albums hung from the ceiling.

After many years, ol’ Charlie was looking pretty ragged – the cats had all chewed on the branches, and that didn’t help either. So we had to say good-bye.

Charlie was a good tree.

This is Charlie. Yes, we named our trees. 🙂

Last Lessons – email poem # 2

Standard

Last Lessons – email poem # 2 Crystal Ball on Microsoft

***

Sometimes I go down the line of my email notices, taking a few random words just to see what I can come up with. This is one of them from recent days.  I call these type my ‘found poetry’, and there are other ways to find poetry to create. You can take words from the emails, or from Twitter, or from cross-word puzzles, or even pick out random words from a book. It’s fun.

Sometimes they make sense, and sometimes they are a bit strange, but always fun to try. 🙂
