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!

Billie Holiday (1915-1959) – Gloomy Sunday (1960)

"Gloomy Sunday"

Sunday is gloomy
My hours are slumberless
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless
Little white flowers will
Never awaken you
Not where the black coach
Of sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thought of
Ever returning you
Would they be angry
If I thought of joining you
Gloomy Sunday

Gloomy is sunday
With shadows I spend it all
My heart and I have
Decided to end it all
Soon there'll be candles
And prayers that are sad
I know, let them not weep
Let them know
That I'm glad to go

Death is no dream
For in death I'm caressing you
With the last breath of my
Soul I'll be blessing you

Gloomy Sunday
Dreaming
I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you
Asleep in the deep of
My heart
Dear

Darling I hope that my dream
Never haunted you
My heart is telling you
How much I wanted you
Gloomy Sunday

"Gloomy Sunday"

Sunday is gloomy
My hours are slumberless
Dearest the shadows
I live with are numberless
Little white flowers will
Never awaken you
Not where the black coach
Of sorrow has taken you
Angels have no thought of
Ever returning you
Would they be angry
If I thought of joining you
Gloomy Sunday

Gloomy is sunday
With shadows I spend it all
My heart and I have
Decided to end it all
Soon there'll be candles
And prayers that are sad
I know, let them not weep
Let them know
That I'm glad to go

Death is no dream
For in death I'm caressing you
With the last breath of my
Soul I'll be blessing you

Gloomy Sunday
Dreaming
I was only dreaming
I wake and I find you
Asleep in the deep of
My heart
Dear


Darling I hope that my dream
Never haunted you
My heart is telling you
How much I wanted you
Gloomy Sunday


Gloomy

Gloomy
My hours are shadows
Numberless flowers will awaken you
The black coach of sorrow
Has angels returning
Angry thought joining
Gloomy

Gloomy shadows
- I end it all
Candles are sad
Know that I’m glad

Death
For in death
With breath blessing

Gloomy dreaming
- I wake asleep

Darling dream
Never my heart
I wanted you

Gloomy.

POEM 11 – week August 16, 2021
Compose a poem using all three of these words:
smoke, mirrors, deception

Line Count: 12 lines, minimum
Required Form: Poet's choice


This week I quit smoking
For all the wrong reasons
(I did not do it for myself)
When mirrors were in front of me
Noticing the deception
I took another puff
Of smoke
And failed me

This time looking deep inside
Remaining tranquil and in peace
Learning my lesson
I stopped again
And I will continue
Doing so
Till it sticks –
my demon done with

Write a poem that personifies an emotion: love, anger, fear, sadness, joy, for example.

In awe

An unknown contemporary poet wrote his thing,
Strong, powerful, and full of imagery

Blown away by this striking talent
I grabbled up and started reading

I wanted to write like this
I wanted to …

So, I started

POEM 7, week July 19, 2021

Make the title of your poem
"What I Remember"
and then let the title inspire you.

Line count minimum: 12, no max
Feel free to use any form you like

What I remember

Remember fifteen years
Love of the canine breed
It is when we first meet
An instant click.

Fox-terrier, you were
Loyal, goofy, and smart
Closed you into my heart
Went all the way.

Those last days of sorrow
Old, grey, and with a fit
Your eyes suddenly lit
-it's time to go.

I held you in my arms
Carried you in the night
And at morning light
Off to the vet.

So, there you were put down
I watched you leave this world
Back home in bed, I curled
I was alone.

My little friend, my all
Rest in peace; you'll be missed
Within two months, I kissed
Another dog.

POEM 4- week June 28, 2021 (LC: 12)
A color



Can’t remember the color of your eyes
Were they blue?

Can’t remember the color of your voice
Was it dark brown?

The silence between us hellish white
My anger deep red

Then dark faded in
Black as the night
Blue my mood

All this, a lie:
I never loved you

Still, the colors of those early days
Were golden like the summer

Pretty as the greenest of springs

Sassy

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

Dunno

Which way

Keeping up appearances

Three months of love

It took another ten
To let you go

Sadness because you died

Mourning over you

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.

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!”
