Opening my eyes

Seeing the beauty of today reminds me to love what I have
Thinking of what I had in the past frees what I see today
Remembrance of the past, its beauty, helps build hope for the future

Puff

Puff was there for fun
For children to believe in
Not to be scary

Magical dragon
Lives peacefully by the sea
Children can believe

Peaceful for children
Sailing away in daydreams
Living forever

Poetry based on Puff the Magic Dragon:

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honahlee
Little Jackie paper loved that rascal puff
And brought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honahlee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honahlee

Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail
Jackie kept a lookout perched on puff's gigantic tail
Noble kings and princes would bow whene'er they came
Pirate ships would lower their flag when puff roared out his name oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honahlee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honahlee

A dragon lives forever but not so little boys
Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys
One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more
And puff that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane
Without his life-long friend, puff could not be brave
So Puff that mighty dragon sadly slipped into his cave oh

Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honahlee
Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honahlee
Peter, Paul and Mary

Peter, Paul and Mary

Peter, Paul and Mary were a US folk-singing trio whose nearly 50-year career began with their rise to become a paradigm for 1960s folk music. The trio was composed of Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and Mary Travers. After the death of Mary Travers in 2009, Yarrow and Stookey continued to perform as a duo under their individual names. more »

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 39: (CONTRAST) in the A rhyme line.

Looking Ahead

Looking outside at the contrast 
of morning and evening are there 
it is not that I even care 
The day before is now the past 
the day ahead might be my last 
I live to see beauty today 
and breath some more in if I may 
knowing for me there is still hope 
and I will be able to cope 
with whatever comes on my way.

Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 31: (ONE) in the A rhyme line

Welcome to the Décima Poetry Challenge. Each week we’ll be attempting a Décima, also known as an Espinela, poem.https://ronovanwrites.com/2020/11/11/ronovan-writes-decima-poetry-challenge-prompt-no-31-one-in-the-a-rhyme-line/

If you don’t know how to write a Décima, click HERE to go to a post on How to Write an Espinela or Décima Poem.

If you can’t come up with a Décima using the given prompt, you can use a Synonym instead. I don’t want to stall your creativity, and with the possibility of a synonym, you will certainly write something amazing…or in my case, something that rhymes.

Here is the quick description of a Décima:

There are 10 lines of poetry that rhyme. 8 syllables.
There is a set rhyming pattern we must stick to. abbaaccddc

The prompt word given (in the post heading) must appear at the end of one of the given rhyme lines, either A, B, C, or D.

For today’s challenge, the word ONE must be one of the line words. Then the other line(s) word(s) must rhyme with ONE.

The Tequila Farmer

Out behind the house is the one 

Who knows how to have a good time 

Not without tequila and lime 

But a lot of laughs and be done 

A place to be happy and fun 

The farmer knows where you all stand

With the invite onto his land

He intends to see tons of smiles 

When inviting folks from all miles

It’d be nice to invite a band.

a 10×10/Vocabularicon poem: https://ronovanwrites.com/2020/10/22/daddys-baby-boy-a-10×10-vocabularicon-poem/

Our Land is Life

We walk down the rows together tonight  
 
To find the treasures that grow in the field  
 
To bring us all out to the working land  
 
To support those who rely on the ground  
 
As the workers are sent quietly home 
 
The growers stand out to provide for us  
 
The ground offers golden life to enjoy  
 
The sun offers us health for life and growth  
 
We will praise the land for what it gives us  
 
We can all come together with nature.
