    eventually
    sky over stars rules
    such is the status
    of planets without
    fools
    sing along it may
    just take one
    to an earth without
    curse!
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    Enjoyed

    Secrets

    She gives her diet soda a shake,
    laughing when the bubbles break.
    The sounds of silence keep her awake -
    yonder waves and gulls forsake.

    Biscuits are random, giant, and deep,
    but have no secrets to keep.
    After eating cake and thoughts of sleep -
    dark dreams after counting sheep.

    Enjoyed both your poems, cacian and tailor. Cacianīs poem reminds me of "The little prince", tailor's is about a not so little princess?


    THE EARTH

    Itīs brown, itīs red
    Itīs green and blue
    itīs heart secrets
    grey ruins and black embers.
    It floats in round eternity
    Losing its ephemeral children
    to Father Time.

    Sadly, a reluctant princess. Feeling ephemeral for now... with hope for much more

    An Ode to a Spirit

    Charming spirit, such a delightful sight.
    How I love when you (from nowhere ?) appear.
    At first when you arrived I was affright,
    'tis but living in a dream when you're near.

    Might I inquire, how long will you stay ?
    You exist ! Are no mere superstition.
    The jasmine and honeysuckles of May,
    Pale to the scent of your apparition.

    You manifest as a spectral pure light.
    With flashing green eyes, my glad companion,
    Your sweet humor is my unfeigned delight.
    Surely this is no infatuation.

    Now, as my days shorten, be still my heart,
    I long for the days we're never apart.

    Enjoyed the spirit of the poem!
    The year

    Sleepy January,
    Dancing February
    or maybe March
    Passionflower in April,
    May and June a friendly turmoil...
    Holydays in July!
    Brisk August,
    Slow September
    October, November,
    melt quickly into December
    and itīs Christmas rushes,

    Do the years still have months
    after one is seventy?

    Loved your poem In answer, we'll find out soon enough (lol).

    nonsense - an acrostic

    numerous pebbles cobble streams
    onomatopoeic cool rushes calm
    net frills avoided by fish gills thrill
    scintillating bubbles burble effervescently
    ecological disparities get their freak on
    numerous pebbles contain salmon eggs
    stupidities generating liquidities, as
    eels wear patchwork quilts of kelp

    Winter in May

    Inane teas
    Wrecked blankets
    Frozen houses, stranded buildings.
    But on the dark streets,
    Cold terror reigns!

    A Man Who Owned Trees - A Limerick

    There once was a man who owned trees.
    Who said, "See the great Japanese!"
    It was an ornamental Maple,
    Which gave him no syrple,
    No matter how many times he said please!

    There once were three men...

    There once were three men
    One owned a hen
    The second one a gem
    And the last one a pen
    The first one ate his hen
    The second sold his gem
    The third one penned
    this poem.

    Enjoyed. Did some random googling using your words and found this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert...int_engravings

    Includes a hen (hen and henpecked) and a diamond pen !

    The Lyricist


    His words hammer when he performs.
    Into a rock god he transforms.
    His fans, like locusts - in vast swarms,
    Endure even the worst of storms.

    And when he gives his fist a shake,
    Laughing till the gates of hell quake,
    The only other sounds the break,
    Of silence when the masses wake.

    Lyrics burn sonorous and deep,
    Those who truly understand weep,
    And in that instant, in one sweep,
    Casts the shackles from off the sheep.

    Rising, still weary from his bed,
    With new arpeggios in his head,
    He reflects on the quick and dead,
    With too many words left unsaid.

    Lol!Didnīt know this poem. Enjoyed very much The Lyricist, seems one unusual take to me. Might it be inspired by so powerful lĸrics as "The Sound of Silence"?

    Huballo Hill

    Huballo

    On Huballo Hill
    The world stands still

    On Huballo plane
    Lifeīs ever the same

    In Huballo woods
    The wanderer broods

    But Huballo river
    What a fever, what a fever!
    #Stay home as much as you can and stay well
