goodnight my dear manny friend
as this day comes to an end
like the red velvet curtain
drawing cross the stage
the poetry read today
felt written by a sage
speaking from being
feeling heart beating
while mind expands widely
virtual arms wrap round body
may you sleep with dreams of bliss
for your friendship offers a tenderness
that many times has brought such happiness

WeareI and Froggy, thanks for warmth

This write may seem a bit dark...and, it is! But there is a healing to it, that only I understand.

Lost...that
day's edge of night,
spirit slow burn
sojourn,
flame sparked fury,
wallowed in the mire
of feral disdain,
discord rasp,
like grating thunder,
and the guillotine
severs, ceasing the seething
disenchantment,
swift the sound of noise,
the executioner
prays.

In the beginning the lightening did struck
Dead tree caught on fire and burnings amuck
Afraid were the animals mammals and insects too
Nocturnal creatures would sleep all night through
It lit up the sky and spat at the moon
It twisted and turned changed colours in turn
It roared like a lion and ate all in its way
Only when it rained they knew it would pay
But one day an ape became unafraid
He reached out and touched it and made it behave
He took it back home alone in his cave
He could stay up and paint and keep wolves away
Small fires big fires middle ones flew
A couple more sticks kept his feet all warm too
It attracted a mate who threw in some food
It heated the mud for pots for a stew
Some mammoth some berries some herbs went in too
The knowledge began of melting metals and glue
The family grew into a tribe of 442
And when the time came so war did come too
The fire was used in all bad things too
It melted the ore for a weapon or two
A sword and a spear and an arrow for you
It burned down the village and killed a few witches
Controlled in a ball it launched over ditches
Burned down the castles and towns and some cities
Didn’t have a thought about what it devoured
Kept burning away till the rain really showered
But then in a furnace to harness its power
Its strength could turn turbines and power our hour
From it comes electric, motor cars too
Without the fire I am sure we are doomed
And now in this world we are kings of the trees
A fire at home is just for to see
We look at it and stare as it flickers away

a moment I have to give to thee
a moment is time from history
could be a second could be a hour
a moment is precious when looking for flowers

some say its long some say its short
a moment is something you catch in you’re thought
catch yourself staring while drinking a tea
catching a moment is something to see

so next time you blink where have you been
you properly spent a moment somewhere, someplace, unseen, like in the dream

Mrbfree, Jameless, and Froggy....well done, and thanks for keeping the fires burning.

Dream, that I lay
in fragrant fields,
with thee at my side....

Dream, that I look
upon thy countenance,
let me hide

deep within thine eyes,
that I might drown
in waves of soul,

That hearts of long ago,
beat once more
with unbridled love,
as never before.

Love you, M

Inside the soul
Pausing to listen
Truly one with heart

I'll hide my soul until

One feels my heart
Reads my soul

Is willing to
Open his heart

Hearing the silent movement
in my heart

I capture her eyes,
locked in mine,
reading the message
in each of her tears,
each one with
scalloped edges,
worn, torn
written in a book
of pain,
pages bleeding
from a broken heart!

tender feelings flow
gather you in my arms
hold you in my heart
as the storm rages

letting tears flow
rolling down soft skin
dripping on the floor
as the rain pours

here by the fire
we stay dry and warm
loving each other
as the wind blows

stormy weather
always an invitation
to gather with friends
who beckon

Hiya D....my sentiments exactly!

I awoke to a clatter,
of feathering natter,
and quickly my eyes did see,
the snow all around,
becoming a mound,
and birds all hudled in the tree.

Across the way,
the children at play,
with snowmen all in a row,
there's Brawny and Ticket,
and Trapped near the thicket,
and Late
with Cowboy in tow!

Those jolly white fellas,
with canes and umbrellas,
appeared to come to life,
when the girls came out,
and with a shout,
"I think we should
build them a wife!"

manny, your poem's great
to include those boys who moderate
plus it reminds me of a few years ago
when my son was still quite young
and had a great imagination....

he and I did something 'new'
we built not only a snowman
but built him a snow-woman too!

now she wasn't exactly a work of art
but you could definitely tell them apart
built right there for my parents to see
under their japanese maple tree!

perhaps this year we could repeat this trick
for now my son's older
we might make her more realistic! :)

Anatomically correct??

Now wouldn't that catch the attention of passersby!
catch the five oclock news
for accident reports,
five car pileup
near the site of
Mr and Mrs Frosty,
parading in their birthday suits!

Hey Froggy...that must have been quite a sight! I love it..

Thou hast sealed thy fate,
by deaths blow of righteousness
shall light reveal thee,
as flowers bloom and wilt,
so shall suns rise and set,
yet,
not upon thee,
disgraced reverence
hastens the sword of justice,
swift ye depart
by angers tree,
find ye peace in darkness,
for that is the color
of your soul!!

Ahhhhhhh...refuge! [whew]
Supper is on,
the fire is lit, glowing low,
tis here that I stretch my vision,
resting my eyes, yet the
third one searches, knowing
what is to come, protecting my inner being,
and when the time is right,
beckons my spirit
to wake,
and know
this moment!

Thunder

From the peak of the mountain
I summoned it's power,
"Come to me, O great thunder!"
and the thunder responded,
arriving in great chariots.

"I beseech thee, enter my spirit,
sooth me", and thunder entered my kingdom
of flesh, calming me in that moment,
yet thunder seemed lonely, as if,
missing something, so, once again
I summoned thunder speaking thus:

"O great thunder, you have freely given,
now you must find that part of you
that is missing! Go now, and find your lightning,
for, without her you are incomplete!!"

The great thunder rose to the heavens,
and there, joined his love, and O
what music I heard, the roaring lights
smiled, kissing my soul
forever!

thunder without lightening is like
mountain without snow
like rivers with no waters
streams have no place to flow

like a new year with no fireworks
cold face without the glow
like a fire without the crackling
and a dance without the show

like a gun without the bullit
the passion with no soul
like love without the romance
like a fight without a goal

thunder without lightening
is like life without the bang
so lets all keep those clouds a moving
cause also without thunder
lightening aint worth a dam

Hasten night,
that I might gaze upon
stars distant love,
forlorn of absence,
I long for sight
of thy vision once more,
Too long the river
divides,
two hearts longing touch,
time grows impatient
in castle cold,
ravens shiver
where warmth has departed,
that fortnight shall pass,
and stars will light
thy way home,
once again to be, alone,
in my arms,
our lips, our eyes,
our souls,
united again,
and the minstrels
shall sing of our love.

forever!

bringing this one home from "Sounds of Blue".

When I was just a young lad,
Oh...say...older than three,
love was all an adult thing,
that fascinated me.

I remember well the YUCK phase,
whenever girls came round,
I'd find a place where I could hide,
and never make a sound.

The first kiss came at age of nine,
and Wilma was her name,
since that day, I'm not quite sure,
but I've never been the same!!

Child of the Not Very Merry

Christmas creeps on jingle-bell feet
tinkling all over the morning paper;
middle-class wolves scratch at my mood,
howl to feed their homeless pups.

I've got cabin fever and a howl rising in me!

I want a red party dress, matching lingerie;
I want to be arm candy and kiss Santa
with sweet fire, under the mistletoe bough.

I've a list for him...but
those feral, street children haunt me,
pierced-weathered-splintered-shards
of rock-a-by eyes, freezing
the butterfly in me .

Shallow, the greed of my needs
reeking of self indulgent whimsy.

I'm ashamed and seek to make amends;
give something to God's family
trying to live under the overpass,
in the dead ivory of winter.




Merry Christmas Manny and all who shelter by this warm fire...
