The Blitz Poem

A Sign of the Times

only time will tell
only one at a time
time piece
time to go
go alone
go get one
one, two, three
one of a kind
kind of like you
kind to your neighbor
neighborly love
love you more
love is in the air
air balloon
air it out
out of time
out of control
control yourself
control your temper
temper tantrum
temper your behavior
behavior adjustment
behavior management
management is in charge
management will contact you
you rock
you are the one
one of a kind
one day at a time
time to go
time of the day
day of the week
day to remember
remember what to do
remember my name
name your poison
name of the game
game day
game night
night time
night before Christmas
Christmas Eve
Christmas is coming
coming home
coming of age
age of Aquarius
age old solutions

Fandango’s Flashback Friday

Check it out here:

Here is a poem from last year, same day…
To me it was heartwarming seeing that it was for Sue’s prompt…I know a lot of people miss her.

Written for Sue’s prompt:


Blue skies illuminated 

Clouds covering the sun 

Morning begins early 

Quiet land waits peacefully 

A new day begins

RagTag Daily Prompt: Nervous

Check out the prompt:

Don’t ask me if I’m nervous
I’d lie and tell you no
you’d ask me how I’m feeling
and where’d those feelings go.
It isn’t like I’m private
or thinking of what to do
its just that I am waiting
for someone just like you.
So take my hand and follow
me up to my still spot
then sit and have a coffee
and share just what you’ve got.
I know it’s surprising
I’m really not so blunt
I just want you to see that
it’s you I really want.

The Waltz Wave

Valerie of murisopsis introduced this form of poetry to me and I thought I would take a chance and try it out. Thanks Valerie!
This is a new to me form called a Waltz Wave. It was developed by Leo Waltz. It is a syllabic form with a title and 19 lines. The subject should be calming. The syllabic pattern is: 1/2/1/2/3/2/1/2/3/4/3/2/1/2/3/2/1/2/1. Words may be split to fit the pattern.

The End of Summer

end of
means so much
when we
of all
the things we
forgot to do
while we 
had the 
to sit
and ponder
the world
all that’s

3 Line Tales

The teacher looked around her room wondering where the rest of the desks were; there had always been twice as many desks, hadn’t there? Maybe someday the desks could be put back and the students could pile into her room like they used to. She sat and thought, if this is the way it would be forever shouldn’t she just start getting used to it?
