Music of Love

Music of Love

Surfing the waves of a captured heart.
Beat, beat, hear it thrum like a drum.
It weaves and dodges strange tunes.
It waits for a whistle.
A journey to you.
Feel excitement,
pain and joy.
Love of,
music.

My One Shot Wednesday poem. I’ve got music on the brain as I wrote this Nonet. Please visit the other talented poets at http://www.onestoppoetry.com starting at 5pm EST time.

Raven

Raven
Raven who stole the light from grandfathers grasp, you could have asked, but instead you chose to trick us.
Corvo, in a fairy tale stricken dead upon an ivory atone, a story of a brothers love and of perils vast that he must face.
Rave, seven in all, cursed to bird form, on the day their sister was born.
Tales of woe, heartache and death plague this glossy onyx bird of flight.

Hrafi, looking into your eyes, see intellegence peeking through.
Korp, are we mistaken about your true identity?
Corbeau, you proudly watched over Dieties?
Raaf, is it true you can lead men to deer?
Corbie, you have a dark history.
Cuervo, your history also light.
Raven you are a mystery.

Racing Time

Racing Time

Time seems to lead while traveling to and fro.
Exasperated tempers flare, like solar rages from the Sun.
Kindness slips away, as frail are left alone.
Regretable words spew forth, as they strike guiltily at the heart.
Time still leads as rushed we are from place to place.
Soccer, dancing, hobbies and more fill the day with not a moment to spare.
Lunch is a munchie, crunchy affair.
Dinner sometimes flying, sometimes homely.
Everywhere to go, no minute unaccounted for.
Time gains speed.
Small surprises all around, watched with passive eyes.
Memories created but never returned to.
No reflective morsels to contend with, the mind is scattered.
Earth whirlwinds past, not waiting for anyone.
Certainly not for those who haven’t caught up with time.
So as the potential for this day to be the last, stretch out your numbed limbs and surpass time.
You dictate who’s race it is, be proud and strong.
And you will win against racing time.

This is my poem for this weeks One Shot Wednesday poem. It goes along with yesterdays form for poetry, free verse. Please visit the other very talented poets at http://www.onestoppoetry.com

Free

Free

An unfinished thought, a seedling buried, enveloped in dirt.
A unsung song, guiltily swallowed by a pretty finch.
A burning, festering situation at the bottomless pit of your stomach.
Like a caged animal pacing back and forth, awaiting a meal to fill its showing ribs.
This is captive word.
Don’t hold back.
Let the rhythm knock you down.
Set free the words that yearn to be heard.
Sing to the glorious earth of it’s precious gifts.
Let creativity flow in the form of music, words and art.
Allow the world the pleasure of the secrets you hold.
Be your own, free flowing soul.

Free verse is the name of the game today at One Stop for form Monday, hosted by Gay. Please visit and give it a go at http://www.onestoppoetry.com.

Day Dream

Blue green sea-foam crashes on the sand.
As I drift along on a ship.
Sails are billowing freely.
Destination unknown.
Brought back to the pier.
Where the sun glints,
on the seas.
Back to
life.

Wild Rose

Wild Rose

Thorns,
first prick,
nipping me.
As my finger,
trails along roughness.
Emerald toughness hides,
sweet sap coursing through the stem.
A single solitary bloom,
awakens a stirring emotion.
Memories sweep accross my timeless mind.
Candy apple red petals carefully,
draped along a glossy wooden floor.
Anniversary, shared delight.
Stealing kisses through the night.
Memories lost in sight.
As like a petal,
you fade away,
Slowly and
gently,
forever.

Bark

Bark

Green creeps down and around a rough hide.
Withstanding the harshest of storms.
Protecting from birds of night.
Keeper of the ages.
Love captured by hearts.
Lifeblood kept safe,
forever,
It is
bark.

This is my entry for one shot this week. It is a poem I completed in 10 minutes at a seminar. We were asked to choose an item from the bag and I chose a piece of bark with a little moss on it. Please read some other phenomenal works at http://www.onestoppoetry.com

Heart

Heart

Usually silent,  thrums a song,

stuck in a game of tug and war,

betrays my thoughts and feelings.

It longs for naught but you,

controlling my moves,

fiery beast,

lost the fight,

my own

heart

Faith

Faith

When darkness seeps through dreams and visions,
And the day is nothing but gloom,
When a friend becomes a foe,
And the night is lonesome,
Hold fast to your bonds,
Of family,
And to you,
Keep strong,
Faith.
