O To Swim

O How I Would Love
To Swim In Your Ocean
Deeper And Deeper Would I Dive
Never To Come Up For Air

O To Dive In
And Swim ~ Inside Your Poem
Only To Surface Above At Your Light
Gasping For Air

Let My Words Soak In =
Washing Over Your Skin
Like A Hot Bubble Bath
Ready To Slip In


Love Angel

STARS IN MY SOUL

My soul belongs to the Stars and Heavens
It is captured inside this earthly abode
It struggles like a bird to be free
So that it can fly carefree to its star home

Not meant to be weighed down here
It strives to be happy and carefree
Needing to join in with the stars above
Where it is free to twinkle for eternity

Free to follow its dream without any care
To do what ever it wants without fear
For my soul was born in the Stars above
It yearns to return above to twinkle with love

no title

soul of colored houses
hearts on broken ships
friendship a shelters storm
the rays of light show again

for the gates of heaven
were only a passing cloud

Thanksgiving

It's a holiday coming up real soon
It happens every fourth Thursday in November
For me it's about the helium balloons
In the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade
Power Rangers, Pokemon, Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Trolls, Angry Birds, Ice Age Squirrel chasing the acorn
Spongebob, Elf on a Shelf, Hello Kitty, Ronald McDonald
Koolaid, Paddington the Bear, How To Train A Dragon
Pillsbury Doughboy, Yes, Virginia There is a Santa Claus
Then there is the football games
Always one with the Detroit Lions
Then we eat a real turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce
Green bean cassarole and pumpkin pie
The story of the pilgrims being helped out by kind Indians
Each sharing a feast
Each thankful to be alive in this new land
May your Thanksgiving be a joyful one

ARTISTIC PALETTE.....

Nature's hand, a canvas can change
Artist uses seasons, variety range
Summer when skies, blue and high
Lift spirits allowing, daydreams fly

Autumns scene, so random and brief
Focus on colour, as changing leaves
Drying-flutter, down towards ground
Silent fall, death makes no sound

When winter chill, brings snow
Life a short time, slowly grow
Until spring, impatient rush
Thaws soil, plants grow lush

Pop-up warns, coming days
Light flashes lift, sunrays
Artist-nature, paint brushes seasons
Colour pallet, teaching reasons

Define picture, on canvas paint
Living-visual, acts live bait
Eyes scan, beauty we know
Earths beginning, reality sow

Changing pictures, morn till night
Waking sunburst, or twilights flight
All are precious, captured to freeze
Left in memories, over time to tease.....

About this poem:
unsual snow patterns have given NZ a reality check, though it is cold in the north, we hopefully won't have snow like the south, but this in our short winter, herald of spring ....so soon will warm, ready for summer when dreams are born.....

Decaying love.

It seemed we were so pure.
We gave such tender loving care.
I felt so proud of us and sure.
we were so beautiful and rare.

Can't comprehend your rejection,
and contempt that I still care.
Hope lost in shitty recollection.
Love now a casual affair?

Helpless witness to collapse.
Feeling hopeless and betrayed.
Like rotting in time lapse,
Our love has now decayed.

ANGEL CAFE


RIP dod: 9/17/2017

God has a new Angel in Heaven today
Leaving his poetry friends astray
Lost without our Castle leader Café
The knights are sad and the maidens afraid

Café Jim brightened all our days with fun
He also strengthened our Spirits with love
He never judged but treated everyone equally
Giving his friendship and his love freely

Greatly missed in this corner of the world
You were one of God’s rare black pearls
Heaven has gained a wonderful Knight
The Castles up there will surely come alive

To all our loved ones in Heaven watch out above
Café Jim is there now – surround him with love
If you wonder how you might find him up there
Look for an Angel with a Halo slightly bent over his ear

Love - Godprincess and all your friends at CS Poetry Corner

OUTSIDE LOOKING IN

Standing on the outside looking in
Still a stranger after all these years
Of striving to become a friend
Realizing things are not as they appear

Like a wallflower at a dance
Standing on the sidelines hoping
Staring at others as in a trance
But instead with sadness and coping

Going away to lick the wounds
Of disappointment as once again ignored
Moving off to a different room
Striving for emotions to be restored

When all else fails slipping far away
To escape the rejection once again
To come back and try another day
Striving once again to become friends

I feel like this a family and church gatherings - when you are attending alone and are fairly new to the arena.

MEMORIES....

I see your face, I hear your voice
Are you in hiding, maybe by choice
As seasons change, and life goes on
Memories linger, from a special song

Life is for living, so we learn to accept
Remembering doubts, upon us crept
Words and images, will always remind
In those quiet moments, our past rewind

Joys, hopes and laughter, ours to keep
Our happiness unique, from us will seep
From our person, as we share day to day
Walking through life, in our own special way
