SAY GOODBYE… a poem

person crying beside bed

I didn’t get to say goodbye

I didn’t get to hold your hand

I didn’t get to see your face

Just one more time

Before my end

And you know I’ll be waiting

Here on the other side

God still has big plans for you

Yes, it’s okay to cry

I hope that you were proud of me

I hope my memories make you smile

I hope you never lose your faith

Sometimes it’s tempting

Just for awhile

And as you travel through your life

Please, always understand

We are temporary dwellers

Just dreamers in a fairyland

WORTH A TRY… a love poem of hope

When the glamour faded

So did he

One moment there

The next – absentee

Why does this happen

All of the time

Will I ever find love

As myself – divine

Creating illusions

To capture the eye

Only to lose

Walk away and cry

Life isn’t fair

My mother always said

Yet I still find myself

Alone in this bed

But, maybe tomorrow

I’ll not wear the mask

Go out in the world

Take on the task

And maybe, if I’m lucky,

I’ll finally catch the eye

Of the love of my life

Well, at least it’s worth a try

Mickey… a silly poem

Happy, happy everyday

Minnie helps me find my grace

Goofy, he’s a silly one

Loping ’round and having fun

His voice is strange

My bill a scowl

And, Tootles keeps us on our toes

Solving riddles

With tools he knows

But, you all know this house of play

The name is, Mickey

Have a nice day

INSIDE THE PALE… a poem of faith

Aurora phenomenon

Be who you are

The power is inside

Reach for the stars

Have faith and not pride

Give voice to the voice

That resides in your heart

The words that you say

Can mend a soul torn apart

Speak kindness and love

And lead the right way

Smile and laugh often

Everyday

Time will soon come

And your ship will sail

Stay true in your faith

Live inside the pale

THOUGHTS OF COMFORT IN FAITH…

If I fall, I know the kiss of a thousand angel’s wings will catch me and set me upon the solid ground with a reassurance that can only come from God. If I lose a friend, my heart may break, but time will heal the heart and soul as our paths have been forever laid out before us in the book of life. We may not know what is written on those pages until we have ventured beyond them, but if we have faith in God, then it really doesn’t matter. Have faith and be well my friends!

WIND… a poem

selective focus photo of woman standing on sea shore near rock formation during golden hour

Oh, wistful wind

How you tease me so

Gentle as the summer breeze

You cause dancing of the snow

typhoon

Twisted and destructive

Typhoons and cyclones too

Heartbreak you leave in your path

To settle in the gloom

Sad, Child, Boy, Kid, Crying, Tears

You can ease the heat of August

Or crash the waves of the seas

Dry the tears from a baby’s eyes

Blowing as you please

body of water during daytime

A love or hate relationship

Mother Nature’s deadly wrath

Sailors curse or praise you

Are you a psychopath

DISCARDINGS… a strange poem

pink pig on brown sand

Where once there fell

A crusty piece

Of savory flavored

Ripened beast

green grass near body of water during daytime

With all the sides

One does adore

Gaseous swamp

And frost of hoar

green frog on green moss

Gelatinous moss

From north of tree

Bullfrog throat

With pitch – high C

macro photofraphy of black ant

Once stroked in pot

With hellfire’s heat

Now blades of grass

Thou must eat

Meat, Pork Knuckle, Sausages, Vegetables

Deliciousness

None can compare

Lest ye hath had

Burnt paw of bear

Abstract Painting Story/Poetry Contest

Hello my wonderful, talented WordPress family!

As I have continued my struggle to write on any kind of regular basis I had a thought… Start a contest! I will post a couple of my abstract paintings and see what kind of response I get with micro-fiction or poetry using one of the paintings below as the subject.

As an added bonus I will give away each painting to the winner that I and my small team choose. (Any ideas or volunteers to help judge would be great. You would obviously not be in the contest.)

Rules:

  1. Choose one painting to write about.
    1. Microfiction – 300 or less
    2. Poetry – Comparative to length of microfiction (Nothing real long, please!)
  2. Submit back as a response to this post.
  3. Post copy of painting with your submission.
  4. Winners will be determined after the contest is closed on Dec. 31st. The winners and their submissions will be presented in a new post.
  5. I will acquire the address for the winner and send the paintings out in January.

Good luck to all and happy writing!

Maybe to get me through???

Hello my sweet and precious WordPress family peeps!

I hope you are all happy, safe, healthy and doing well!

I am contemplating placing some of my paintings out here to see what kind of microfiction stories or poetry they might glean…

I dabble in abstract acrylic pourings, and I am always fascinated by the interpretations of what people see in these paintings.

So, with that in mind, and in lieu of my muse making me wait like a good, innocent, loving couple for their eventual wedding night, I think I like this idea.

I was in my new painting area (basement) while flooring is being installed upstairs and I was looking at several of my paintings and thinking of what I was seeing… Then, in a flash, I wondered if this might be an opportunity to see what inspiration some of them might bring to my WP peeps…

I like this idea and may start a new posting for microfiction or poetry contest… Maybe, I’ll even consider giving the painting to the best entry…

Please let me know your thoughts!

A work in progress… Stay tuned!!!
