SURPRISE… a poem

Even though he was timid

She had captured his heart

Never had he been moved this way

He wanted her close right from the start

################

She had a way so gentle

When he touched her she moaned with delight

Cuddling was all but a given

As he would sleep with her every night

Boy in Black V-neck Shirt With Looking Straight to the Camera With a Shocking Face Expression

So, turning to his mom and dad

He begged with tears in his eyes

“Please, oh please, can I have this sweet puppy?”
“Of course!  It’s your birthday surprise!”

FINAL JOURNEY… a poem

photo of green leaf trees covered with ice at daytime

And so,

I meander down the mountainside

Into the valley that would test the resolve of my fear.

No, I have no time for plunder this time around

My journey is a deeper one than that.

While I’ve hidden away upon the mountain,

While I’ve terrorized those, who trespassed upon my land,

I find my ill-sodden soul too heavy to bear the fruits I’ve sown.

Alas, I seek my final resting place among strangers.

God help me!

APRICOT LULLABY… a poem

An apricot lullaby

Mesmerizing and deep

Cleansing my mind

As I’m falling asleep

Wrapped in the arms

Of my mother’s sweet love

Drifting away

On the wings of a dove

Moon, Moonlight, Dream World, Dream

Dreams of my father

So proud and strong

Walking the dogs

While singing a song

The morning sun rises

And to my weary eyes

I see a book on the chair

Filled with sweet lullaby’s

Unfurled… a dark poem

A menagerie of melancholy emotions

Confounds the dreamless state of mind

A whirlwind of images lost at sea

While storm clouds scamper by

Incarcerated within unscalable walls

Hiding away from the world

A conscious that’s broken and can’t be repaired

My demented state – unfurled

Fantasy, Composing, Mystical, Surreal, Dream, Mysticism

THE PRETENTIOUS ONE… a poem

Breakneck speed

He’s running to score

Lungs burn like fire

Can he take much more

Skilled with agile

Wiles in his feet

Winning the game

Always makes him complete

Man in Blue Under Armour Jersey Shirt

Ahead is the line

He need only pass

He holds up the ball

The best in his class

The headlines are bold

In the paper next day

Someone faster behind him

Took the ball away
