Do For You
I feel a flutter in my chest and feel the wind beneath my wings like a bird upon its cage feeling free and so it sings Needing nothing now but love like a hanger for a shirt wanting to be hanging out not laying in the dirt but the cold can come and take it and try to halt its song like a blocked path in a garden a tree root is that strong To deny yourself the freedom like a child from a womb is to wish you had no lifeline Only future filled with doom so you finish what you’re doing try to stay along your way keep your vision very close don’t let sadness make you stray Be eager to find that someone to share your love, your flow and go just where your heart leads don’t stop or let that go.
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 neighborhood 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 Solutions Aquarius
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.
Valerie of murisopsis introduced this form of poetry to me and I thought I would take a chance and try it out. Thanks Valerie! https://murisopsis.wordpress.com/tag/waltz-wave/ 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
the end of the summer means so much when we think of all the things we forgot to do while we had the chance to sit and ponder the world and all that’s left
You could hear the squeal of laughter as the children ran round and round the bandstand. In a few hours the grass surrounding the bandstand would be filled with checkered blankets laid out with wine and cheese. Despite the antsy behavior of the children a couple sat drinking in their own quiet solitude of the morning. The air was warm and the sun, hidden behind a thin layer of clouds, peaked through every few minutes as the wind moved them along the sky.
Time in the grass waiting for the show warmed by the sun but shaded from the glow children playing sprightly while parents bide their time Soon the music started an evening so sublime
