Hi Miss Sam and Pickles!

As always, just dropping by to spread to some love. . . .:-) I hope all is well with everyone. And now. . .a poem!

Untitled

It is dark, it is warm,
I am surrounded by what I can not see,
But yet, I know, I am safe.

Many times since my arrival here,
I hear gentle songs from time to time here and there,
Where do these songs come from? I wish to hear more.

The gentle caresses around my shell,
They are so comforting and yet my world is so small,
Why can't I stay here forever?

I know my world will change,
I hear a voice from yonder,
From the darkness I come into the light. . .

I am born. . .I am in my mother's loving arms.

Hiya all,
Great to see ya Spirited and A.G.!!!
Hope you are all having a wonderful day!!

Proud flags waving
Scent of roses
Gusty breeze
The Zephyr proposes

Passing clouds
The sunshine hides
A cooler day
Which nature provides

Windows open
Fresh cut grass
Feels like today
Is starting first class

Lilies bloomed
The storms are gone
CCR is playing
A favorite song

Love these days
To clean and toss
All the stress
And constant chaos…….

Next morning all,

how long have we known each other, darlin?
I don't have a calendar and you quit leaving me post-it notes
it seems like forever...biblically speaking
lot's of devilish behavior in that book...

I started to try to explain to someone about the harem
realizing that I couldn't possibly convey the way we scared 'em
from marrying me at the river, to marrying a postal worker
I'd use my slang, but I've become much more politically correcter....

Hiya Dog,

Hmmmm,
Seems like we’ve know each other
Decades past, as spirits fly
Above the bridges
That kiss the sky
Time not measured
In almanac days
But much more intense
In unseen ways
No words needed
In souls connected
A harem forever
With only the purest selected
Others have come
And then must go
When truth be lost
In a quid pro quo
A family bond
With L, A, B, and Me
Even in the dark
It’s us you’ll see…………

Hugs

Glad we got to talk!!!

When times are tough
And the heart grows weak
Remember you are special to us
You’re one of a kind and unique

We are all
Just a phone call away
Anytime
Night or day

Just look to the moon
And know we’re there
A Dog, an Angel, and a Princess
And so many more that care….

Love ya hun!!!

Yeah, whatever Sam....... lol

This is for Lu. Probably the truly sweetest heart that I know.
Which means that this poem will be simple...
and who knows where it will go....
quit making stupid decisions..
I make enough for both of us....

Bowling...ain't that fun?
Yanno...my kid was conceived in the lincoln after we turned in our shoes
It was going on midnight madness and they shot off the starting gun
and they turned on those strobe lights and put on elevator blues
It's your poem, darlin
What would you like me to write about you?
That I love you?
You know that do.

stop and breath for a moment
said, the passing gentlemente'
just stand back for a moment and look at yourself as you would me
calm your nerves and you will gain clarity

Lu, this ones for you too!!

The heart yearns
For touch and affection
The mind plays games
Unconscious detection

Uncertainties in life
There are no guarantees
No instruction booklets
Love has no warranties

It’s all in how
The cards are dealt
Within the heart
It’s what is felt

New roads to follow
New paths to cross
New adventures to discover
And some old ones to toss…

Love ya girl!!!

Hey Mari, long time no see, lol. thought I would share something

A girl and her father
Had a horrible past
Years of drinking
That was unsurpassed

It damaged her heart
And brought tears to her eyes
She didn't know why
Her father told her lies

She started to grow up
But her mom wasn't there
When she needed her the most
Life for her was so unfair

She isolated herself
To a point of most extreme
And cried herself to sleep
Just so she could dream

Her father asked for help
Which finally came at last
And their horrible relationship
Is all part of her past

Since he received help
Their relationship grows more
And things are much different
Definately not like they were before

how about I try to rhyme past
with your ass?

the dignified librarian let down her hair
leaving her glasses crooked
I told her that I had once read a book
and a button popped open on her white cotton shirt
revealing what had hidden an amazing pair
and she took away my library card too
said that I had a novel way over due

ABORTED ESCAPE
BY

©November2005
anotherairforceoneoriginal

(airforceone was already taken on this site, so here I am known as aiarforceone, I think.)

The maiden, they say, had lost her way
While running through the lush green forest where dreams grow.
In fast pursuit of the long touted loot
To be found at the end of the rainbow.
Overcome by fright of the oncoming night
She sought shelter neath an old cottonwood.
On the leaves there she wept til finally she slept
And fitfully dreamed of her childhood.
From out of the gloom rode a tall man of doom
Who sought the forest for seclusion.
He looked cautiously around, then jumped to the ground
And tied his mare to a pine tree protrusion.
He stood there astounded and silently counted
His blessings that allowed his escape
From a posse whose desire, was to see him expire
As a falsely accused committer of rape.
From a perch in a tree he strained hard to see
That the posse had not picked up his trail.
His heart filled with mirth as he slid back to earth.
And pictured the hangman astride a small snail.
Thinking it best if he took a short rest
He strolled to the old cottonwood.
He spied the lass there, and stroked her soft hair
Til she woke in a state of confusion.
Was a man bending there who really did care,
Or am I overcome by delusion?
Be not afraid. He said as he laid
His hand on her arm to assure her.
I ve ridden quite fast away from my past
And I m just as frightened as you are.
She struggled to stand, he offered his hand
And gently pulled her up to his side.
He stood there amazed as steadily he gazed
At the girl who accused him, and lied.
He grimaced in pain as she lied once again
I just could not betray my lover
Who in times very wild had fathered the child
Inside me, now grown too large to cover.
The man mounted to go, the lass shouted, No!
And grabbed the reins of the mare.
‘If to home I returned I d be continually spurned
And live a life of despair.
In the distance I hear, that the posse is near
And if not you, it would be me for their noose.’
But in all her dismay she just couldn t say
That her plight was from parental abuse.
And the child that she carried without being married
Was seeded by her mother s new spouse
Who raped her one day while mom was away
And the two were alone in the house.
When mother was told her response was to scold,
Why do you continue to lie?
You know quite well if this story you tell
Your new father surely will die.
‘Then you must join me in my effort to flee.’
Said the doomed man, and the lass quickly agreed.
The tall man reached down to her on the ground
And she swung up and behind on his steed.
Off into the gloom rode this tall man of doom
With the girl mounted behind him.
They galloped quite fast away from their past
Still worried that the posse might find them.
On this dark moonless night they were aware of their plight
But not of the prairie dog hole just ahead.
The horse stumbled there, they flew through the air;
Mother and child soon lay dead.
A shot soon rang out leaving no doubt
That the mare’s suffering had ended.
Her leg was askew and the doomed man knew
Of no way the leg could be mended.
On the ground there he wept, til finally he slept
And was awakened by horses gyrating.
He opened his eyes, beheld morning skies
And a posse with a parson now waiting.
Soon in silence they stood neath the old cottonwood
And thought highly of themselves and their deedThe parson said a prayer for the tall man who hung there
And in silence, for the stillborn of his seed.
Now a cross marks the spot where the pair met their lot
And where the mare’s bones lie drying.
The parson tis said, put a gun to his head
And on the winds of the forest he’s heard crying.

Morning all,
Pickles & Ding, Thanks for sharing, hope all is well with ya'll!!
A.F.O., Awesome write!! Welcome to my thread!!

Spent the day at the hospital
With my sister yesterday
Our world fell apart
And was covered in grey
Her pathology came back
"Aggressive inflammatory breast cancer"
Now Chemo and Radiation
We pray is the answer.......

Prayers needed!!!

Unknown course

A storm is looming
The forest cries
Raindrop tears
From blackened skies
The Zephyr screams
Through wilting leaves
The dust soars
Within the breeze
Shadows fall
Upon the earth
Marking destiny
Before it’s birth
Stars are dimmed
By an unseen force
Time is measured
On an unknown course……

awaiting the sunrise
it doesn't matter how many before or how many after
just this one

and some flowers only bloom during the night
and every desert has an oasis
coffee or finish off that bottle of wine?
today is one that I won't miss

Morning all,

Ding, Dog, & Stillwarters,
Thanks so much!! It's been a tough week, and she goes back in today for a full body cat scan to see if it has spread anywhere else. I pray it hasn't!!

Each new sunrise
A blessing to my heart
Each color I see
Is only the start.......

Morning all,
My Sister had the scan done and great news, the cancer hasn't spread anywhere else so far!!!
So now it's on to the chemo next!!

Day by day
Hour into hour
Tears shedding
In endless shower
Looking for the good
In this darkened time
Praying for hope
For this sister of mine
Not much known
Of this cancer type
It's very aggressive
More tears I wipe.......

Thank you Pickles and Marie,

You can't even imagine how much your prayers mean!!

I'm so numb right now! But ya'll are helping me cope through this. My mom had this 5 years ago, but not this aggressive kind. She has been cancer free ever since her treatment was done. Lets hope that my sister will do just as good!!

Thanks again everyone!!
I love ya'll!!
Hugs

My kid wants to write a poem

...about Chester and Scruffy is the title

scruffy is a big idiot
and Chester is still looking for a treat
licking the floor and I only have two hands
and Scruffy is just looking at me like I'm stupid
and he says give me a piggie-back ride
and scruffy is trying to get attention
and I can make some up, he said
but, don't tell anybody about this poem now
I am not joking
stop...hop..hop it
and I came over to scruffy and now he's dancing
and I gave scruffy a gummie worm
and I gave chester a chip
and scruffy is jealous
and scruffy is standing up waiting for one from me
and he took my push pop away from me
...the fuvker...well, I added this line

moo

edit: I'm not going to put anymore of your poems down today
Yes, you are.
No, I'm not. And I'm bigger.
