Brizo it was lovely and puts things into perspective as well as makes me miss Ravin a lot out here although I do get to read her poems it's not quite the same.

petri

soon the ocean returned
to serene
just another scene
reflected from her ever
changing face
birthed from her waters
rocked in saline
touched by grace
we are made one
by common trace
touchstone legacy
genus, species
race

Hi Brizo I'm in New York City with all my girls. It is an amazing city!

I come and go anonymously
Where once I played freely

Captured by kindred spirit
Reclusive renaissance

Running through the scales
My mind turns repetitively

Over and over
Water, bridge, underground

Faces of caricatures
The old and new

Horse beside car
Brick and wood

The sunset chants
Sweet freedom

Oh sweet freedom’s shores
Where a lady guards humble pie.

I'm stuck on page 102 and haven't had anything for weeks - I tried honestly and this is it....


Disconnected, misplaced
You thought you laid your mind down in one shiny spot
With the other necessities

But the words come out in smoke rings
One at a time
Smack in the middle of a whirlwind
Downward spiral

A galaxy wasted on its hearth
Breeding chameleons
And yankee clippers
In the skies

Homeless creatures
They cannot find their minds
Nomads or seascapers

And here Ravin is writing up a storm as a mad poet and saying April is poetry month and here we are all out of words and so busy in real life that the thoughts are all mixed together into one gigantic whirlpool of days blurring one into another as I play with paper dolls and design a shower invitation like I was lining up little shells in a row or blades of grass each with a snail attached. So if April is poetry month perhaps I will be different and wait for May to bloom.

~Lillies~

In beautiful spring
how the sun
shows her wings
All that glittered
is gold
I forget
how I mold
to your ways
So my petals
are glorius
Vessels enormous
I am blue
yet ...a colour of
yellow with
a purple hue
it is you~!

Autumn....that was about my Ma....hugs to yu 2!

jules...i thought you to be a spring baby...was suprised your b'day is in autumn!
i think your poem could be illustrated beautifully into a children's book....unless you want to go 'the other way'!

lilac and lilies
and roses so true
fragrance of spring
before blossoms drop
hot summer daze
slip into starry nights
of memories
and moments of wonder

Hi Jules and Rose I love them all from starry nights to lilacs and spring being born and awareness. So today someone brought a newborn baby into work. . .


I saw a baby today
And something happened inside
Laying eyes on those miniature features
Rosebud lips, chubby cheeks
Pink fluted bonnet and sweater, baby blush pink
She looked like a fairy’s gift secreted under a rosebush
In the quiet of the moon
A dream that powders the sky
With wide eyed stars
The baby in me wants to be born again
And see the world through innocent eyes.

This site keeps getting smaller and smaller
soon the words will melt off the pages
into miniture zero's and
we who use to play daily with words and worlds
colours and feelings
they have slipped down the rabbit hole
or shoved behind the wardrobe in a
secret space with snow and strange animals
keeping company
even the emoticons are midgets
100% of people who have slipped by the cracks
disappeared into life
oh well
one day this will be all gone
and with it many hours of play
with some very special people.

Well...you both should come around more often!!!!!!! :)

Life in the summer
like watercolor impressions
leave me runny and blue
All I needed was you!

Boats drift like petals
driving over the bridge
my mind wanders
hard to find someone new.

Not sure if I want to
Music plays in my mind
I insist I am fine
while the Blues play on...

I sing my sad summer song!
The sunshines on and I drift
floating like feather from a cliff
landing softly amiss , i sigh!

That was lovely Jules!

I still feel like the print has shrunk and if I enlarge it I can't see the threads and authors. The rabbit hole down head first
everything is blue
blue as the ocean
blue like a dream
tiny pebbles cast on the shore
these miniture words
I don't wear glasses for reading
but this feels like honey they shrunk the kid :(

5 point zero

One forty-five in the afternoon
The sky was black and ominous
But I was happily playing at my new job
When I experienced a strange feeling
The flowers in the vase on my desk were shaking
My chair was shaking
And for a moment in time
I thought it was just an illusion.

My Daughter's Wedding

The phantom of the evening gazed out upon the crowd
From his primal stance
Revelry taken shape in the shadows
Girls in red dresses twirled, mindless
Lanterns in the dark
The lyrical became absurd
Lips tasted wine
Masks held to shade the eyes
As the past slipped from the crevices
And a circle was formed
Generations met in a ceremonial frenzy
As the bride maid merry
And groom donned his place as
Guardian of the toast
Masquerade ball
Lives from past and present
Merged through the doors
Of the darkened
Rotunda
Someone watched above
Up the stairs and off to the side
The ghost of weddings past
The music played
And never stopped.

Morning Meanderings

We grow nostalgic as our arms wither
And our sight recedes into the past
The golden year’s cometh
Some reward for living
Through the whirlwind of circumstance
That appeared in sequence as only a prequel, propeller
To our understanding.

I believe I should sit on the mountain top
With my gift of wings bestowed
Sight acutely measured by deed

Instead I deny the years resting upon a cushioned pedestal
Of no one’s choosing – fate, destiny, reaping the rewards
Walking the labyrinth minimizing every step
And glowing in an apparition out of sequence.

It’s strange that the very earth you stand upon
Is hiding secrets, your secrets, your vision
The trap door is covered in moss
And a one dimensional understanding
That the universe exists in frames
The film spinning at an unbelievable speed
Through the eye piece of knowledge.

Sit on the porch with apple in hand
Squinting sceptically at passer-by’s
Who represent the future
Hopefully believers in preservation
Reverence and a keen instinct of the womb
As earth moves through the galaxies
The shadow grows at an amazing speed of thought
Into the proverbial unknown reclusive orb of our destiny.

The above is a wonderful capture.

Just wanted to drop in. Hopefully, you peek in from time to time.

I hope that all is well.

We are reaping our harvest
From a skeleton, nostalgic
For that, which has come
And gone. Thus, we wonder,
Shall the tree of life blossom
Before our eyes, or has the
Glory of our Eden departed.

The glory of our Eden hasn't departed and it is so sweet of you to stop in after I thought this thread had gone to sleep J. I do pop in once in a blue moon to see what my favourite writers are up to!
