Wow more folks who write poetry. I do and for all sorts of reasons. This year I started saving my poems.

Writing is a great outlet!

Who's brave enough to initiate the sharing of these wonderful thoughts immortalized in writings, Dewdrop and Velcro's angelic voices accompanied by Mystic's haunting piano rendition...hmmm?

June already gave us a glimpse of her gift of poetry...albeit bitingly...

Love you guys!

June's already made an adaptation via re-writing the lyrics to a well known song, but it's so lousy that she thinks she'd have to be drunk in order to post them!.....

Ok.

I wrote this after my cousin died last May suddenly.


Jude
Cousin of mine.
A most favored one in a child's eyes.
I have loved you.
For a lifetime.

You are gone now.
And are missed, more then you can know.
What was, might have been.
Now possibilities are no more.

Yet my memories are there.
Each time we reconnected.
I thought I had time.
Never did I think you would be gone.

In my heart you are, always will be.
Jude
Cousin of mine.
I miss you.

Here is line from a poem written by "Henry Scott Holland" that sparrow sent me when my mom died earlier this year. I try to focus on this when I become overwhelmed with sadness.

Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped into the next room.~~~Henry Scott Holland

Ohhh...
~Hush and listen to the breeze.....

Who are you? She asked...ambiguity
I am the soul from within the tree...familiarity
He spoke of tranquility, she grasped...unity
Merging of minds...we've met before haven't we?

Exchanged thoughts and ideas poured out
Joy and pain in life is what it's all about
We've walked along this path once and parted
For a reason beyond us, yet upon acted

You'll meet again soon, a soothing voice sounded
Neither here nor there, but where you'll be bounded
And once again that beautiful tree will knowingly bend
To witness the meeting of souls with no beginning nor end

I have written some light, airy poetry, some comedic songs, some children's songs and more, but all that is in this room are 90% the other stuff. This is one of the "other stuff."

It is Better to Dwell in the Housetop

Upon her orders, the house, wide and boxy,
was in a constant state of mutation:
staircases moved from here to there;
doors that had been there one day were gone the next.

Despite all its windows, darkness prevailed,
and the darkness, both physical and spiritual,
imprisoned all who dwelled there.

What seemed to be was not;
what should not have been was.

I think I would like this one better written as prose --

For me, I love surprises, and it is fun when I find poetry hidden in prose. This isn't really a fun piece, so maybe it should be left as poetry.

I love both Velcro...it's not much of how it is written, rather the spirit within that shines through...

No wonder we, on this thread...gravitate toward one another...kindred spirits through and through...

Ha! You're being kind, Ans. I should have put in a lighter, happier poem, rather than one so dark.

But it's fun anyway!!
