Poem # 7

LOST IN MY NIGHTMARE

~

In the obsidian midnight of my dreams

Nothing, no nothing, is as it seems

The deepest abyss now rules my soul

Insanity gathers to take it’s toll

Mysterious and strange, gravedigger dark

Undertaking souls…leaving it’s mark

Entombed in it’s ebony, inky deeps

Forever and ever, my spirit weeps

The fractures keep probing…my psyche desolate

A crystalline human, myself incarnate

I exist in dimensions, my aura will show

A higher vibration, an awareness to know

I swear my senses are not corrupt

Open my eyes…wake up, wake up

Lost in my nightmare, I’m not sane

I stare at nothingness, I’ll take the blame

My love for black…it’s manifestations

Color my world, in all incantations

Poem # 3

“TRICK OR TREAT’

~

Cider mulled,

Pumpkins hulled,

Grinning skulls abound…

The night is dandy

To hand out candy,

To little monsters coming ’round.

RDP #72 – Cat

https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2018/08/11/rdp-72-cat/

***

I’ve been meaning to do these Ragtag Daily Prompts, so for my first one today, the word is ‘cat’, and well, I love cats of all kinds.

***

This is a picture I painted a long time ago.

I’ve always known the tiger is my spirit animal.

This is a poem I wrote about it years ago.

~

Tiger

In misty dreams you came to me

When I was only two or three

A forest dark, and deep, and green

I wondered what my dreams could mean

You were my friend, my Spirit kin

A guardian without, a guardian within

I was born into your year

Tiger Spirit always near

Magnificent eyes, shining bright

I weep at what now’s your plight

Endangered in this cruel world

Victim of the weapons hurled

If only we could be at peace

Return to dreams without surcease

To that mystery forest in the night

We could try to again make it right

I know that you will always be

In my dreams

A part of me

Flash! – Boom!

Standard

Flash! – Boom!

Firecracker Banger China Cracker Firework

***

I have a headache.

Flash! Boom!

At 3:45 in the morning

Flash! Boom!

Startled out of sleep

Flash! Boom!

Bright lights – loud bangs

Flash! Boom!

Cricket cringing under the bed

Flash! Boom!

Make it stop

Flash! Boom!

Have some consideration for your neighbors

Flash! Boom!

Don’t you dare do it again tonight

Flash! Boom!

Lack of sleep

Flash! Boom!

Headache today

Flash! Boom!

***

Yes, this is a true story. You see that word down there…Peace

I want Peace in the middle of the night…not

Flash! Boom!

***

I like fireworks as much as anyone, but please don’t disturb the neighborhood, and frighten the animals, in the middle of the night.

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.

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

#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
