First Line, Last Line (Part Deux) Page 1 of 233    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41)
due to an accidental error, it seems the original thread of the same name has disappeared......
and so, as it has almost become a pof poetry tradition, here we go again....



let the torch be lit and may the writing begin
here there is no minimum or limitation
the only thing we ask is just one small task
that we use the last line of each post for the next one to begin....

at times the original thread became an addiction
and also filled me with fascination
watching our words weave through thought
often feeling my energy caught.....

like a fly in the web my muse was fed
sometimes writing when I should be in bed
or waking at night I'd turn to the site
finding connection through our writing passion....

thanks T....honestly it was suggesed to me...
so I've begun it again not quite so bravely!



finding connection through our writing passion
wonder if this place will ever lose its attraction
gathering here for nearly two years
sharing laughter, wisdom, and a few tears

No man-made object could possibly compete with that;
Whether fully clothed, or wearing only a hat.
Spaces to be filled can leave us empty, at best;
So leave them that way and enjoy the rest.

Timing is such that we know not when,
Or if that void will be filled again.
Live for THIS moment, for IT never ends;
It never receives-it never sends.

But never forget, the love that we shared;
It only existed, because we dared,
To step out of time, testing our fate;
Was it too early, or was it too late?

The wheel must be round, to keep rolling on;
So keep it filled up, from dusk until dawn.
And as the sun rises, erasing the night;
We WILL know the reason, for finding the light.

^welcome lqqk! good to see you here.

we will know the reason for finding the light
rising over the horizon of our dawn flight
yet all journeys they say have no beginning or end
beyond the confines of our man-made illusion

if we could just open up to our full imagination
we might get a sense of our circular motion
where there just can not be a beginning or end
and all thoughts of a straight-lined journey
will seem impossible to comprehend

for space and time can often decline
our ability to see wholistically
where learning to be can surely lead
to sharing pure energy deliciously!

to sharing pure energy deliciously
as all are intertwined
amongst a web
of dependence on one another
to meet our needs
Should we at some point
come to realize that all we need
is within us
loving us
guiding us
protecting us
and
energizing us?
Letting go
frees us to love another more completely
Sure wish it wasn't so hard

House of cards or house of pain?
If built with tears, toil, sweat and pain;
A house can withstand a thousand year reign.
If slapped together as only a game....

Well, let's just say that my little sister will DEFINITELY come along and knock it all DOWN!

Mom?.... Mom?............MOMMY! Sis just knocked down my castle and it took me a bazillion years to make it!!

If slapped together as only a game
You'll find those who peek at the cards
Or try to take a shortcut or two
They try to convince you
That by hurrying the game along
A sweet and happy song
will appear
And the finish line is near
Playing the cards held in the moment
Simply is all it takes
To eventually see a shortcut
Is certainly a mistake

when it comes to anything of substance
they have nothing beyond some hints
so look more deeply in their eyes
where I think you'll be surprised
a timeless beauty seen within
shows depth of spirit filled with passion
and sorrow grown from real compassion
a soul you know in the reflection

there were unseen forces which sent a curse
when my marriage went from better to worse
when my man developed a great thirst
for the poisoned brew he could not resist

over the years it did persist
dissolving our love into an alcoholic abyss
releasing each of us to find alternative happiness
by jumping off the mile-wide cliffs

So he was able to cope with the harshness of life in defense
is a long way to say....I swim, you swam.
when you seek to live
nothing will stop you.
If you do not seek to live
I cannot undo you.

(hey numbers...i seem to be stalking you tonite......actually, i stalk you often but i just don't share!!)

i cannot undo you.
for i am still undoing me
letting my light shine brightly
knowing deeply
the meaning of life
the brief moment
we are here
not to lecture
or scold
or judge but
to love...simply.

stalk em all you want rosie but jot down yo numba if you glance my way ;) hehe

or if the negatives will come out any better
what's the deal with the teenage mutant ninja turtles and a human samarai named shredder
If negative emotions post synthesis
let the outcome be a new variety of sea monkeys in this

In a small petstore my army will bloom like children of a **stard son
each day warming to the next one
and each day i rest will become a memory in time
simply fading each dying soldier like a cat with nine

As each tear falls back i become focused
I'll start impregnating women by the masses grab em by their carouses
should i sound like a pervert in a poetry thread
i don't shut up and spread

Rosie knows I'm foolishly humorous or try to be but give me a chance to write something sweet sometime weare1 i'm good friends with tigerlily too :)

just to name a few :P

I don't shut up and spread,
For if I do, I'm better off dead.
So look out world, 'cause here I come!
What eludes a few, brings laughter to some.

The pain of losing can turn to joy,
If you tend to make that your "little ploy".
Black is white and blues are read;
Is it possible to break the thread?

"AHA! I SEE!", said the blind man;
As he picked up His hammer and saw.

as he picked up his hammer and saw
he wished to create with his soul still raw
from walking on the beach that morning
seagulls shrieking their heartfelt warning
a piece of driftwood caught his eye
almost missed when he walked by
for the ocean had drawn him in
capturing his artistic imagination....

capturing his artistic imagination...
relesed torrents of emotion
contained not but drawn into
restlessness calming
ocean sounds submerged
painting vistas danced oceans
souls intertwined calmed in awe
imagining creatively expressed real...

imagining creatively expressed
real intention of happiness
grown from compassion
blossoming with passion
delicately scented like carnation
flowering through all in unison
not just words of symbolism
but fertilizing love with realism
releasing all from mind-made prison

Bring your own handcuffs, but place them on me;
Am I your prisoner, or H. Houdini?

We ALL must wriggle and wrest, to be free;
Take off your blinders, so that you can see.

My struggle is mine, and yours is your own;
With movements to make, and skills to hone.

Cast off your chains, and swallow your keys;
But never forget, the depths of the seas.

If I fail to escape, from the sideshow I planned;
Never again, on the shore will I stand.

At least there seem to be plenty of fish;
So why is PIZZA my favorite DISH?!

Pialby Poetic Papa at The Extra Cheesy Shack
May be waiting in the shadows, for your hunger to attack

Be careful not to ingest, items that will tear at your soul
If you are not truly ready, let go of the fish and take the bowl

Hunger can be your undoing, even if it seems to satisfy
Take time to look closely at the menu, stay away from the pie

You are the only one, who truly knows what will fill you up
Half full, half empty, and how you perceive your cup

Quiet times, moments to contemplate your goal
Do not let hunger take over, for it may steal your soul

balance is the key, as feast or famine is not the goal
yes, here there are many fish a'plenty
most seem really genuinely friendly
but none of them are meant for me
well, at least not romantically,
which quite suits me actually
for it's been a great journey of discovery

Discovery had nothing to do with misery.
Misery had nothing to do with sunset.
I loved you, I did honour you.
Then, with each earthquake, each tornadoe
I slept at your side, I sidled, I wanted
insurance you would not discover
what is always beyond me.

You, falling away from
outstretched palms.
Letting go is the
hardest part,
I thought,
catching a glimpse
of your eyes.

the game that you call love in this no one can win
unless we all stop this way of thinking
for love is really not something to bargain
though many have maybe felt the shame
of putting conditions upon its name
hoping this time it won't be the same...

yet knowing we all have feeling hearts
opening often when the relationship starts
then finding with time it all falls apart
thinking another can love us more
unconsciously sometimes keeping score....

now love is our natural state some say
here forever...not just for a day...
the key is to see it's here to stay
so please let go of your hold or boundary
let love flow free and watch it heal humanity

brown paper....to be safer
is best for packing lunch
cuz it's the lightest of the bunch
in my son's backpack which is so heavy
plus the bags are recycled, so good environmentally,
except his lunch would be crunched,
inevitably....
