Cinquain stains on my membrane

Not much
What's real changes
Fairy tales brought false hope
These days children play cyber wars
What's next?

Warm up
Under covers
'Til it's time to get up
Stepping onto freezing floorboards
No thanks

A new car instead
So I can go way ahead
Of the cops that might chase me
Cuz I'm on a driving spree
Footloose and fancy free

Remembering my rx8
Fast little car right outta the gate
Mazda made with rotary engine
Didn't like winters in new england
So after two years had to trade it in

Connecting the dots in a critical disaster land
Looking for spots in the flying leopard band
No more do they pop when one is on the go
Flying through life like you're on a game show
Immediate gratification is the way that you must be
If you're going to take advantage of every opportunity
Because it's only here for this moment to reach out and grab
But the day is near to stop the fear and see we've all been had
From those huge companies claiming good but are really bad
By the ones who preach for them pretending to speak truth
But we all know the real wisdom is coming from our youth

To watch northern lights from a satellite
Even from mars maybe on a clear night
Taking trips in the dead of night
Just a hop through the universe in flight

Wonder if it's just a dream
To fly as fast as a lightbeam
Seems like science fiction to me
But then it could become reality

Became suspicious about having doubts
Two negatives make a positive or thereabouts
Balance helps when one plays on roudabouts
Visiting a fairgound with circus scouts

Hoping to find some who'll want to run
Away with the tent and trampoline fun
No more do they let animals come
For animal cruelty did we finally shun

Taking the bus til they deliver my yacht
Would take a whole lot more than I got
Saiilng the deep blue seas for some fun
If you're one of them you'd take yer gun
In case a trespasser comes aboard
Guess in the old days you'd take yer sword
Buccaneers had years of mutiny
Now we're rebelling against this country

Shopping online for a slightly used pup tent
Hope it's tall enough so you're not too bent
Crawling in to your warm sleeping bag
A great big tent's what my family had
Big enough to sleep all six
Had two curtains if my folks sneaked sex
Loved the gold canvas in sunlight so fine
But when it rained would leak in all the time

Deep-rooted longings
Behind a chastity belt
Knights always had key

Their blacksmith very handy

Ironically now that MA has the hash
And legally can grow it for free at last
If you want to or need to medically
Or even grow or buy it recreationally
It's really great to have the liberty

But then my timing has always been off
So strange it was a year ago I was aloft
Spent a week in vegas with a friend and family
Came back to find it was all done with me
Not by my conscious choice ironically

Tried a few more times as still had my stash
Plus brownies for a special treat made from hash
But each time I tried felt odd with the high
Really bizarre after so long I had thrived
And as you said, spiritually how I survived

Took a long time to find my joy again
Felt like I was being quite down trodden
Then slowly but surely my energy returned
Still have my stash but it never gets burned
Saving for a rainy day if I ever again turn

Transcending wave lengths growing old
Silver grey hair now taking hold
Never imagined this age would I be
Just this past Monday I turned sixty!

Still feeling a bit like I did at twenty-three
When I moved far away from this country
Knew one day I'd return when I'd learned
Ready to fly again, not from being burned

Raised a whole brew of children you see
Well, to me it's a brew, but was only three
Then two out of three stayed there to live
Married their best friends and one had two kids

Now we're divided as another generation grows
Watching time fly through warm days and cold
Still a glint in my eye knowing life is a gift
No fear of the day I'll die and my soul will lift

Been quite a long journey this time around
Don't care what they do when my body is found
Don't mean to sound morbid, just the opposite really
Will celebrate the day when my soul leaves my body

Meanwhile I live from one day to the next
Trying to make sense of this world's crazy mess
Can't quite explain how we came now to be
An isolated world in an isolated country

Still trusting the day will come when we awaken
When hearts will open and dreams not foresaken
Until then I try and live each day with a love
That flows through my veins and warms my blood

Reconnecting frequency a clear view
Resonating frequently with you too
History writing from this site to the next
Poetic musings on the 'ole internet

Dating refusings is not my cuppa tea
At least one could write back a no nicely
Instead they just ignore a letter you sent
Clearly a connection with them is not meant

The oriental symbol for crisis is opportunity
Flipping separation around to potential unity
When the world is turning completely topsy turvy
At least there's company when everyone's crazy

Better to try being sane than staying lazy
But they all complain when you wear paisley
Trying to find some friends of like mind
Or at least one or two who can still be kind

That sweet hello when we pass by
Feeling your friend just got high
Noticing their blood shot eye
As they ask if you want to try
The latest crop they just dried

But alas you let the moment pass
Having at last given up the grass
After years spending too much cash
Admittedly having quite a blast
Now happy to live without a stash

Four wheel drive spinnin stuck in a rut
Eight wheel drive wouldn't help this nut
Off his trolley with all his meds intact
He's a fool's fool with his ridiculous act

Pretending to be presidential you see
Thinking the job is incredibly easy
Course it is when you have no clue
Nor wish to learn what you should do

Like a windbreaker zipper caught in your beard
The pain's sharp and deep but the wind's what you fear
Hopefully not rising again like this past weekend
Had to be careful driving between many trees fallen

'Twas a small hurricane took us all by surprise
Then everywhere the power kept dropping like flies
Took several days to get it back up and running again
Was it the wrath of mother nature playing with heaven?

Bright colors shine to reveal our true self
Playing with filters brought a psychedelic elf
Posing as my cat with her long purple fur
Bright yellow eyes that add to her lustre
Dashes of orange shine bright fire on her light
Really has green eyes and fur is black and white
First long haired cat that mirrors the dark night
Lovely company who's funny fills me with delight

Who has time today to read the small print
Rushing through life like a speeding elephant
Not usually seen to be running so fast
But you'd run too with a gun on your ass

Trying to save your tusks of pure white
Poachers of ivory think it's their right
Hunting in the deep jungle at night
Elephants run when they feel fright

Testing how fast figments of imagination can fly
Fell alseep immediately, not gonna lie
Dreamt of a night scene with Steve Mcqueen
Flying down the highway watching a moonbeam

Suddenly saw another shoot out like its brother
A dual of light that lit up the night like no other
We stopped dead in our tracks to see them play
Woke up but remembered that dream all day

In a most amazing sight that I'd never seen
Fell in love with a real beauty queen
Turns out she was a man all dressed up
In ballgown, high heels and classy makeup

Now if only she had liked women like me
Could have been perfect for compatibility
But she was truly a man's man so to speak
Didn't believe her so I took a peak

Women and children are mankind's best hope
Especially with so much of the country addicted to dope
So many kinds now that keep you numb and enslaved
Almost impossible to stop and start a new page

But these young shot by guns are definitely the sage
Can't help but support them for we share their rage
Bringing hope to us all as we enter this stage
Trying to right the wrongs so present today

Forgot to say post above was from a pick a line here, so first line was not mine.
Just this morning a creative writing thread caught my eye and thought I'd have a try called 6 word memoirs.

She woke up a year older.

I never said I could write.

Wishing for unity in this country.

Sharing the burden of unknown friends
Feeling the power a loving heart sends
When seeing the loss of lives that end
Will take a long time for them to mend

Doesn't feel right tonight to write in rhyme
Keep hearing the words it's not the right time
But we really have had enough of this now
Time to stop shooting us, but how?

Time to remember how much we care
Time to admit how much these guns scare
Time to see the good in humanity
Time to really stop this finally

Blanketed under a patchwork cloud quilt
The sky opened up to show a rainbow wilt
As the rain came pouring down yet again
Creating a mud slide where boots got stuck
It was the kind of day you felt flat outta luck
Then the sun started to shine on the horizon
Showing the grand rainbow arching again
And for a while all your cares were gone
So you smiled at last and broke into song

Baking moon cakes to welcome in the new year
As it's February, must be the chinese frontier
Don't even know which animal it is this time
Too wrapped up in the casualties and the crime
And helping my dear friend run for election
In her town next to mine so not a big one
Takes a great deal of dedication in one so fine
Been her dream since she was nine

And will be out in numbers on voting day
Yet shame on the adults so controlled by the nra

Still looking for my twin
The one who matches my soul
Heard of them so often
It's part of my life goal

Every now and then I wonder
Will it ever happen
Did I make a blunder
Not realize and flew past him

Been feeling the heart of the young ones so strong
Trying to makes changes of all that is wrong
So sad to see them plea desperately in this country
To those who can't feel and innocence not believed
Where the devil wears suits and looks quite grotesque
Speaking lie after lie for this deep-rooted mess
