Gray Days – NanoPoblano – Day 11

Today it is sunny, bright, and warm. However…

The past few days here have been chilly, gray, foggy, and damp. I wrote this on a gray day, and took the photo of the birds in the fog.

“Gray Days”

Gloomy gloaming

Gets me roaming

Through the corridors

Of my mind

Gray and drizzly

Like a grizzly

Bear-ly hanging on

Thoughts and feelings

Stripping peeling

Away

Reality merging

Close to verging on this

Melancholy

Day

The Nest

The Nest

***

I just watched a little video of a magpie building a nest. It was on a post at Chronicles of an Anglo Swiss

This inspired me to write a little poem. Thanks so much, Pat!

Check out her blog to see the video! 🙂

***

The Nest

Perched precariously on swaying limbs

Building a home according to whims

Using only your beak and mouth

Constructing your haven, North to South

Holding on with your tiny toes

Keeping your balance as the wind blows

Weaving together twigs and sticks

Your nest is a wonder, a nest to fix

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

CAUTION! WEIRD POST AHEAD!

Standard

CAUTION! WEIRD POST AHEAD!

On  a hot summer night, I was up in the stands at a race-car event. The track was huge, and cars were zip, zip, zipping past, sounding like mosquitoes. I watched them for awhile, but also kept looking up at the dark sky, like I do all the time, looking at the stars. As usual, I kept hoping a UFO would show itself.

Suddenly, I did see movement in amongst the stars, and it seemed to be getting closer. It was just a bright, little light, but was moving very fast toward us, here at the race. It got closer, still, until it was right above the track, and it began circling around, just like the fast race-cars. It was an even faster blur. It seemed to be a small jet plane, like an Air Force jet. How it could zoom around so super fast, I don’t know. Everyone watching from the stands were amazed.

After a couple of turns around the track, it took off, back into the dark sky. We watched until it was just a small, bright speck of light, again. However, just before we lost sight of it, we saw a giant explosion up in the sky, shooting orange flames, miles high.

Writing down a dream

Nothing is as it seems

Writing down a dream

There’s a message, but what does it mean?

ooo – ooo – ooo – ooo

Writing down a dream

Remembering every scene

Writing down a dream

Visions are quite extreme

ooo – ooo – ooo – ooo

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 🙂

GHOST WITH AQUAMARINE EYES

Who would I be, if not me anymore

Stripped of my being, right down to the core

I’ll open tomorrow with an arrhythmic swallow

Banish the sad, the tepid, and follow

For awhile, for a season, on the calendar year

An affirmation that I hold dear

With a flourish, a shout, a cursive flair

I’ll be the Ghost, I’ll still be there

Myself as myself, there are no lies

I am the Ghost with Aquamarine Eyes.

WHINNY at the TREE FROGS

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

HOWL – for SOCS – HOW

Standard

HOWL – for SOCS – HOW

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 25/17

***

Todays SOCS – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – has the prompt word ‘how’, to use ‘however’ we want to use it.

How can I come up with something using ‘how’? All I can think of is  little phrases I’ve heard, like ‘how now brown cow’, and ‘how’s it going?’ Also, there are lots of ‘how-to’ videos, and books, showing/telling how to do something. There’s also ‘Howdy Doody’, which was a children’s television show, back in the 50s, using a character marionette. I remember watching that, and thought it was pretty funny. That’s about all I can think of for ‘how’.   … However… I wrote this impromptu poem just now. I actually wrote it on paper, right before I started typing this post. So, it’s basically stream of consciousness poem writing, which is how I usually do my poetry. The words just come to me, pretty fast, and I write them down in a hurry, so as not to forget ‘how’ it went in my head. Anyway…hope you enjoy my poem. It uses ‘how’ in a different way. 🙂

HOWL

Howl at the moon

Howl at the stars

Howl to the night

Howl against wars

Howl at injustice

Howl for peace

Howl out the pain

Howl for surcease

Howl for humanity

Howl out frustrations

Howl for your love

Howl for all nations

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. 🙂
