shriek slowly faded as I walked away Ruining my exercise that precipitates my day The drumming continued and the peacefulness topped Like vines along barns grown too thick to be cropped I clung to my sweater spread right ‘cross my back I was flummoxed to see the cement had a crack Was it water in there hunting for a space to hide? Like a natural trowel I impulsively tried To look in the crack, a real tight place to see If this was the place the cacophony might be I employed all my senses, visions coming right back Like the floods and the blooms of springtime’s attack When all of a sudden I saw in that space All the creatures were having a chummy embrace There was music and balloons like tiny small dots There were young little creatures banging on pots They were celebrating something, I’d never know But back to my exercising I had to go.
barns thick clung topped blooms walked spread drumming faded hunt peace floods

a maiden with her hair bound up tight There, amidst a clearing in the dark woods, stood A paintbrush poised beside her bundled hands In this land its a ubiquitous sight
ideal place exists in forests So still, where silence hides a tranquil place No utter madness of the modern world No new electric nor developed space
But what is this I still can hear
a sound with feeling draws me back a topical solution found Where once was only a small crack So leave us, her and I alone to guide silent inferences here so glory may be sent to God to leave majestic beauty near.

manifestations To determine a moment or two Where gratitude is not held down Where a strong stand is taken by you
silence is suddenly broken When gossip is shuffled around People around shilly-shally You shoulder the words and the sound
wrap your arms around slowly An afable look on your face And find that the truth is the one thing That can fill nearly all of the space
Your guard is suddenly broken
A powdery dust no longer seen Like the blade of a knife that is bent All severe feelings is how it has been
The situation is fine now
The look on your face shows a smile The sweet minty taste on the pallet Once again you have gone the whole mile.

Once his dream of a life together With her faded, day by day, As he realized that his love for her Was unrequited and far away
He knew he had to move on A premonition he had felt Even though she kissed him tenderly Its a hand that he’d been dealt
needle in a haystack Found only once by a surprise He stood there in a trance and stared The scud, a cloud look to his eyes
Holly’s not some trendy model No debutant from castle life In a periwinkle dressing gown She’d never get to be his wife.

One tough lady
She thought she heard his voice in the hallway [just] outside found a place to hide of her apartment so she immediately It was a place reserved for those things that many people keep a solo beach lounge chair, all the junk was piled deep With a measly bit of force she left the settlement alone forcing every muscle to move with every bone. She could hear him mouthing off to the gentleman next door calling him a OMW, acronym for old-man-whore She knew the power of his words would make the man just cry but she quickly ambled out the door, her only chance to fly She made it to her car with only seconds more to spare When she saw him start to run towards her with a nasty, evil glare She put the car in drive and escaped his scary trap and went right to the police house to tell them of his crap. The cops were so confused as to why she stayed so long She simply told the policeman there she was trying to stay strong. They drove out to her place and saw him lying on the ground someone definitely shot him, the gun made little to no sound. No body witnessed anything and they said he had no friends And this is where the story of abuse will surely end. ©2023 CBialczak poetry

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 1st 2023, is “resolution.” Use the word “resolution” any way you’d like. Have fun! My Resolution
If I make a resolution its to have a bit more fun
Make a bowl of ice cream right before I take a run Eat up all my supper even when its take-out food Say thank you for store samples, I don’t want to be rude. I’d get myself out walking, enjoy the sounds and sights Go to bed real early, avoid those sleepless nights. Eat nothing but my favorites, ’cause happiness prevails We’ll see what being happy, for me, really entails!
