Friday April 3


Humor keeps us sane
it is a piece of what we need to do
to prevent us from getting
the dreaded corona virus
coming up your nose

First Kiss with My wife

It was 1982
when I first met my wife
the love of my life

In 1979 she came to me
in a dream
and then she walked
off a bus
eight years latter

a few weeks later
we went for walk
in the woods

and ending up kissing
passionately wild kisses
as we walked in the woods

and the kisses
led a few weeks later
to our first night together
as man and wife

but I will always recall
our first kiss
of our life together

Birth of New World

the first interplanetary travelers
arrived on the new planet
called new Eden
and watched the birth
of the new world

hoping that humanity
can get a new world
and avoid destroying new eden

hoping that god
has given the world
a new home world

Peacock Speaks

as the virus spreads
around the world
the peacock in the zoo
speaks up

talking on behalf
of their fellow species

he called upon humans
to free them from their zoo prisons
and let them be free

before it was too late
and humanity met their fate
becoming a ghost in the wind

Iguana Talks to Mankind

the wise old Iguana
woke from its nightmares
of the end of the world
as humanity faded away

the iguana was scared
but afraid of the future
and he would miss
his human friends

six word poem

naked masked woman
waiting to kiss

writer digest prompt day Day Two space poem

Inner worlds beckons in these dark times
No one knows where it will end
No one understands the future
Everyone must descend deep inside
Remembering their dreams

Cosmic dreams fill my head
Of the future we can dream
Some offering hope
Most of us can still dream
Only then can we become free
So that we can escape our fate

writing.com prompt day 1, 2, and 3

Day One Historical object

Search for the holly grail

for thousands of years
people have been searching
for the fabled holly grail
in hopes that it will lead
to eternal life

then one day
the holly grail is found
millions die
from drinking the tainted grail
Day 2 berkeley maps

growing up in Berkeley
back in the day
we still were allowed
to free roam

and so I went
everywhere on foot
or bus

walking to Solano avenue
drinking coffee
at Peets coffee
eating Chinese food
in Berkeley’s china town

walking downtown
walking to CAL
eating top dog

experiencing the late 60’s
transforming Telegraph

and walking in the woods
in tilden park
high up in the hills
overlooking the bay area

Day three Recalling people I barely knew

over the years
I have known so many people
and now when the virus
is spreading out around the world

I will soon be hearing
that this person has died
and that person has died

I will outlive many of my friends
from around the world
part of getting old
something that I fear

one day perhaps
people will hear
that jake has died
and they will say

that they barely knew me
and wished that they had
taken the time
to become my friend

Just as I think
about all the friends
i am about to loose
to this killer virus
running amuk

The Tritriplicata is a new form invented by Arjan Tupan, "Story Teller, Cross Pollinator, and Ideator" from Papenveer, Nederland.

His form is based upon the number 3 and has 27 syllables in 5 lines, arranged with 3, 6, 9, 6, and 3 syllables in each line, respectively. The poem should present a snapshot with a volta or turn which provides a fresh perspective, as described in the following link: https://thecreative.cafe/calling-all-poets-try-a-new-poetic-form-39c1bb966d14 , and demonstrated here:https://medium.com/le-giroflier-royal/tagged/thinking-of-europe .

So, break out your linguistic paint brushes and grow a panorama along the "Form of the week: Tritriplicata" thread on "~ The Poet's Place Cafe~" discussion forum.

corona fears

the word fills us with dread
spreading around the world today
will we all survive this

Saturday April 4

follow your dreams

follow your dreams
they may some day
come true

they did for me
I dream of meeting
the love of my life
who became my wife

for eight years
she haunted my dreams
then one day
she walked off a bus

out of my dreams
and into my life
becoming my wife

Coffee’s intoxicating smell wakes me up

coffee’s intoxicating smell wakes me up
filling me with hope and joy
as a I drink deeply
filling my self with smell
the sent of sweat as heaven
darkly hinting of hell as well
filling my every fiber of my being
with its intense smell and flavor
driving me mad with anticipation
as I smell the fragrance brewing
in my coffee pot
waiting waiting waiting
for it to be ready
for me to consume my daily drug

allien abduction

when I was in high school
I accidentally drank a drink
that had been laced with lsd

I went on my first and only acid trip
one of the most profound and terrifying events
of my life
and it haunts me to this day

in this trip
at one point
I found myself
in a space ship
surrounded by aliens

who were conducting experiments
on me
they flew me to NYC
where I went to a bar

filled with aliens drinking
and they came after me
and I found myself
back on the ship

they said
time to us to leave him
to develop his own language
and I woke up in my bed

did it really happen
to this day
I do not know

but do I believe in aliens
and alien abductions
yes I believe
for it may have happened
to me

To Dream the Impossible Dream - Ghazal

to dream the impossible dream
every night I must dream

and during the night dream
I will see her in my dream

yes I met my love in my dream
she came to me in my dream

for eight long years came in my dream
haunting my nighttime dreams

one day she walked out of my dreams
coming to life out of my dreams

and she became my wife in my dreams
and soon became as real as the dream

and she walked out of the dream
I knew her name Angela Lee in my dream
all poetry ghazal poem
quarantine blues
Quarantine such an ugly word
Unlike any other
All at home
Regardless of desires
No where to go
That is the worst part of it
In fact enforced staying at home
Not to bad
Especially I have you by my side

Blues come over me
Looking out the window
Unable to go out
Everyone everybody afraid
Sums up my fearful fears
