  • Sitting down in our house can be—

    Risky.

    Kikuyu my mini pet triceratops likes nesting on—

    Cushions.

    You see, Kikuyu has superpowers, she is—

    She is also magical and whoever she touch […]

  • Off the shores of Jötunheim,

    There stands a mighty gate.

    Portal to the wisdom well,

    When the tide runs late.

    Upon an ocean’s wave.

    Ride the Astrol S […]

  • I have to get these modules done,

    Required by the district.

    I only have four more to go,

    and then I’ll rest more easily.

     

    I’m learning how to do cool things,

    Technology is great.

    But push […]

    • Ah, yes. Procrastinators, unite! I like the sense of “if I get this done, I can play in the sun” concept going on in here…
      Nicely done!

  • When sunlight hits, an atom flips.

    Electrons jump about.

    From shell to ever higher shell.

    It really makes a sight.

     

    These little spots of polka-dots.

    Must borrow from the sun.

    To have their […]

    • Stunning telling of our solar system and the stars that seem to have no meaning but to burn and fall to make a wish on. Well done.

  • Siphonophore Apolemia

    Creature from the land down under.

    A string of vibrant light.

    Ringing outward like a puddle.

    Shimmer to entice and plunder,

    Food by your device.

    Swaying gently in the […]

  • No Saying Goodbye Twice

    ~willjxn~.

    I calculate the time it takes

    To reach into your mind.

    I hear your song of loneliness,

    Read on your face its line.

     

    Where are the people we once new,

    Is […]

  • The circle of time,

    Is winding down

    Smart phones take their place

    No need for being smart.

    .No need for counting fives.

     

  • on this morning walk

    holding hands shows all the years

    we’ve forgiven time

    • This paints such a beautiful picture! “We’ve forgiven time” is such a wonderful way of putting a lifetime of love into words.

    Lifting off from Salt Lake City,

    Thrown back in my seat.

    Rising over Colorado.

    The Rocky Mountains blink.

  • We often poison “those who take care of us” 

    fooled into believing

    We know what’s is best.

    We render the ground free of weeds, 

     nature’s way of blessing earth.

    We with our monochromatic golf cours […]

    • Your initial and ending lines compliment each other so well. Very skillful way to bookend a poem.

  • Watering

    ~willjxn~

    Watering flowers and trees

    If not in northern Africa,

    then maybe in our dreams.

    The human soul needs more than just a place to eat and sleep.

    We need a  place to feed our […]

  • Spring brought the news of a fall marriage.

    A wedding in our backyard.

    I gave them my blessing

    I gave my dreams the wallet;

    At last, my dreams would be realized:

    A tall white gothic pergola […]

    • Ha haa… the constant conversation between wallet and dreams!!! I wish they could go hand in hand always 🙂 🙂

    • Enjoyed reading this and yes know the difference between what we dream of and what we can afford. However, being crafty helps A LOT! Hope the reality will be as beautiful as the dream.

  • Yusuf, your song, is our song.

    Song of a shadowing moon.

    Finding we’re all in the darkness.

    We all know the same loss.

    Eclipsed by the sleepy night.

    Walking in the shade of doubt.

    Made by our own […]

  • Prompt 6, Hour 6

    Misty morning waking

    Transcending gardened dawn.

    Hill breezes lift to spirit mountain.

    It has been—

    Only last January? 

    February?

    I am glad you are gone.

    And, I’m sad, too.
