Scanty snippets on/of poetry
A poet has to manifest herself in a safe environment. This is such a place for my early baby steps. The wonders of the world and my inner thoughts mingle. They become one. It’s a journey of the soul, a spark of the mind, and a bit of spit. For more "Poet @ Work 2 [18+]

A glimpse of nature


On the other hand: it might be a brooding place for challenges and poetry contests, some of which required ONE STAR RATING. (In case somebody wonders about the *StarB* *StarB*gracing this blog) A large group of writers participated in this challenge that required to rate as low as possible. So, it doesn't mean this blog is a bad blog or that they reviewed mean, it was required and this is the consequence. Alas!

POEM 2- week June 14th, 2021

Uncertainty:
Think about a time in your life when you couldn’t make a decision,
and write a poem based on it.


Uncertainty

No-no
Yes-yes
Dunno

Which way

Keeping up appearances

Three months of love

It took another ten
To let you go

Sadness because you died

Looking
Looking out of the window
The night has fallen

In mourning
Mourning over you
The dark sky

(Precious dog
My dog, my everything
Death is so definite)

Lights in the city
Blue wonder

"~ The Poet's Place Cafe~ [E]

Tonight it is on: Biden and Trump
Election time, trolls' thrill, info dump
USA; the World: watch what may comep!

From three till five the aired fight is real
Don’t treat it like “it’s no big a deal”
All will be watching - ready to reel?

Waver and swagger; dance with those two
The show must go on, stakes are high too
Inform y’all, talk, and vote then, please, do.

The Big Bang Theory revisited

An orange pumpkin from outer space
Her alchemy working through the maze
She drank stiff fluids and spelled
“Sunshine, moonlight” and yelled
“I knew it, I’m a druid touched base!”

Nature’s barrage

A river flows
Some cows are mooing
The wind blows from the west
Rest

Water seeps
Through cracks, it’s creeping
Icefall rumbles to the east
Join the feast!

Saw you in that crowd
Oh! Lightning bolt, your face lit
Alone for seconds
We split in separate halves
On our ruptured ways to where?

A dancer, jingling as he moves

(watching, you think of cultural identity)

Ropes begin to move, slowly over the stage
Bells shaped into bullets

Foreboding words: the ending of the world
An intense relentless crescendo of violin, saxophone

The stage blackens
Floating ethereal beings acutely aware of the descent into chaos

I am transfixed, already sobbing

Breathing in and
slowly out; at ease
Quiet and peaceful in these
chords of tranquillity

Waterfall; rushing leaves

Stormy weather, sun
is rising
Breaking dawn, door
adjourned

Silence!

You sit around getting older
All the years and no one heard

Been there, done that, messed around

Tick, tick, tick, tick on the watch
And life’s too short for me to stop

In that empty space we pause
