Heart and Soul

Just a whimper in the corner
not much...
a few seconds lost

A sometimes recoil
in sorrow,
in thought

A bigger spirit
pats her hand
and lands her feet

The output tear
watered seeds
Hope is sprung from these


A mother is brought to this when her child hurts...her faith and her strength help her, bring them through it all.
For all Moms do; for all you have endured, loved, missed, wished and got just right,


On May 9TH, 2010:
Happy Mothers Day

Today I forgive you for hating me
and playing dress up in my favorite dress,
although you used glitter glue and scissors
and turned my closet into one fine mess,
I forgive you for the ticks in your hair
from riding dirt bikes with the boys,
and all the food you shoved under beds
all mixed in with your toys,
I choose to remember the simple things
like the drawings I had on the fridge,
or how we'd get out of the car
while parked on the beach draw bridge,
I still enjoy braiding your long straight hair
and kissing your cheeks with my gloss,
or just giving you one of those quiet hugs
when words still come at a loss,
I am your Mother still even though
you two are so responsible and grown,
I do love you both so very much
even though I never answer my phone...
(for my Rox in the box and In Pandora's box)

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the women out there.

May this be a day of love and family,
of rest and relaxation
and enjoyment.

God bless all you Mums!

Awe~ thanks, and may everyone cherish their children even if they are far away from home. It takes Dads to make Moms so I thank them all too!

Shaping

I tip my toe
in icy thoughts
of what to leave
of what I've got
and warm them
in decisive lots,
placed in plots
and plots and plots
Weeding this,
and tending that,
and tiling in
the widened gaps,
patting gently
narrowed rows
near the other
ones that grow
Of the ones too heavy,
left them to rain
down to the levy;
a mingling churn
into sliding sod
as I tend to those
meant from God
And, several times
I've checked my lots
And, years ahead
I'll plant my thoughts
And if my mind
will see them clear,
my elder age
may hold them dear
If, I am blessed
to see them clear



Just a quick mess'n around and reading some good stuff and saying hi :)

Mama's kisses

When the head is bumped
and tears fill the eyes
momma's kisses help to turn the tide

big fat juicy ones
right where it hurts
a little mini massage
for the baby's (something that rhymes with hurts)

I hold this one gift
up higher than all
taking away a child's pain
a true life saver when you are small

He must be getting sleepy
because he just bumped it again
have to cut this poem short
and give some more kisses to him

Perhaps your dream
was an ancestor's scream
beckoning you to places
you've still yet to see

Maybe it was a simple way
of telling me to spend my days
on something other
than your tender embrace
wretched embrace
no longer a face
with smile
all the while
you laugh at my pain
it's not some stupid game
and I'm crying on the front porch
as the crickets keep time with my breathing
at one with nature
still not seeing
the most natural thing any human would do
forget all this pain and stay the hell away from you

After a summer largely without
two weeks of rain leave the forest floor
soft and compliant to the task
and spade in hand the only official
takes solace in a black hearted night
that mercifully negates an incriminating moon

collar to the tailings of Igor
in short order a shallow grave is ready to receive
the unsubstantial remains of a cyber dream
without a corpse all is ceremony
but nevertheless necessary
to mark the passage of a living thing

yet no headstone will weather under hemlock
for with every turn of acquiescent earth
shame streams from the cap of
one the ostensibly rational adults
who should have known better than to
so gleefully incubate such an improbable thing

Fall away

The branches held on the best they could
...those lovey orange leaves...
But the breeze was receiving complements,
and so his ego seized

A thought that just a little blow
could tickle so delightfully,
the wind took up a healthy breath
and let it go soulfully

The branches hung in sudden shock,
and so let go more leaves
...sending down a dancing rush
as they flew with ease

Folks in parks, in hats and scarfs
drew frowns among the trees
running, fetching, tumbled toppers
trying hard to flee

The wind then pondered puzzlement
at all who seemed displeased
...The little effort, without might
was more pleasantly received

But, as with Autumn, memories fade
...as did the power of that breeze
and so it goes every year,
as branches hold and wind does tease




Hiya Manly :)
Just a stop by...I have moved to TN! Been busy...and happy and beginning a new adventure

Lost

Filled with creation
birth of my imagination
wonder with complication
with no sense or redirection
spontaneous question
with no solution
depleting my motivation
Time stop in motion
seeking for answers with no solution
life gives me no recognition
hoping to live with graceful sensation
maybe I myself has no definition
perhaps my existence is an abomination
these thoughts have no continuation
disabled ignition
continues vibration
someday maybe I will let go my life and reality's distinction

For Poetlover59

It says you have blocked me
when I send you a message,

and if this is so, it's ok
but, somehow, this is strange

and hard to believe,
after all this time.

I have my own suspicions
but will save that for later.

RSVP, if you wouldn't mind.

For you Manly :)


Total Eclipse

Who can block a sun's bright ray
Who can block a beautiful day
Who can block a compassionate smile
Who can block fortitude's extra mile
Who can block what makes a giggle surface
Who can block Manly, and on purpose?

Who can block a pondering thought
Who can block what they know, aught not
Who can block the painted word
Who can block a color not heard
Who can block breezy renditions
Who can block manly who has all this in him?

Love ya!

The man of the house has returned
He's got a sense of humor that could bring the world
to its knees
I can see
it
now

He's got a set of eyelashes
that could stretch to the moon
the sweetest little laugh
he'll cause the girls to swoon
and mommy will watch them like a hawk...
too soon for any of that silly talk

He's incredibly smart
can do acrobats like a pro
gonna be my short little Russian gymnast
but, actually, he's starting to grow
into a tall, lanky Texan
with skinny hips like his grandpa...
Truly nothing in this world
can compare
to that blonde haired
little man of the house

He's had a hard row
surrounded by girls
but I think he's going to make it
And I never want to take that
smile out of my home
One day he'll have to roam
but right now... he's chillin' with mommy

Lol....was just saying to another Canadian man on this thread how it seems there are proportionally far more Canadian men here willing to express their souls than from other countries (well, far more better poetry at least seems to erupt out of Canada or the UK)---and here you are today, proving my point exactly. Nice thread, when it popped up a few days ago, I too started reading through. Haven't gotten to all 100 pages LOL, but yes, what a nice poetic home you have here. I guess I will have to start reading pages and pages back to find other hidden gems and poetry I can relate to. Why did you abandon this for so long?


unfolding under moon bleached clouds
the sky is fleeing quickly
darkness a mystical force
of bending
rising
falling
intense and fragile
all urgency falls away
ebon night fingers me
the moon plunges by
the owls and I arouse
our glittering dreams
take flight

moon willow
lunar peaking
willow weeping
a name begotten
never forgotten
once upon a time
in a dream long ago
speaking to my being
from a friend, not foe
walking by the stream
with two fawns and a doe


welcome back, manny.

My hand is on the roof of your world
you surround me
I surround you
You are my house
and my windows and doors
and last night when we lit candles
because the power went out,
you informed me that clams
reproduce without even touching
and I replied "so do flowers"
one flower over out yonder
gets their pollen on the tip of a bee's toe
and the the slightest touch of that toe
on a completely unknowing flower
completes the act of flower love
and then we just smiled into each others eyes
so glad that we don't have
that kind of love where even the slightest
touch of your hand on the roof of my world
reminds me that you surround me
and I surround you and
we are each others windows and doors

my sweetest Anna Banana-
only you darlin' can recall such adventure
and still giggle~

I guess I was a city girl ho
I would have brushed off the ants
moved and banged his brains out
in my days of youth of course
now I want a hotel with room service~
(in pretty lingerie with matching ribbons on my paddle)
