The End (Cinquain)

( #poem #poetry #end )

The End 
So close to us 
We will never know when 
 It will come for us in the dark 
Or light

Blunder (Limerick)

There I was with voice as thunder
Those around were filled with wonder
   A failing stride
   Hollow word tied
My little horrific blunder

Own Path

Own Path (Limerick) 

There was a day that we used to pray 
That we would all have a superb day 
 Now Yelling and Screaming 
 Each other demeaning 
We all now go our separate way

Hollywood (Cyrch A Chwta)

Look at this flashy beauty
Most think she is a cutie
But to me she is fruity
Going about her duty
Acting all fine and snooty
Her harsh voice full and tutti
Then comes the reality
They wish to see her booty

Smoking run

Rocky the shore

Shore in California
Shore filled with crabs

Crabs will snap
Crabs are carnivores

Carnivores eat meat
Carnivores can be pets

Pets are all around
Pets are kings

Kings today
Kings take control

Control your anger
Control the water

Water is cool
Water brings life

Life is short
Life is fun

Fun are friends
Fun is family

Family brings life
Family knowledge

Knowledge is earned
Knowledge is useful

Useful projects
Useful tools

Tools of fools
Tools for wood

Wood buildings
Wood blocks

Blocks of life
Blocks of rock

Rock the world

Roll out the carpet
Roll the dough

Dough for food
Dough for the car

Car in the shop
Car Crash

Crash the computer
Crash the party

Unworldly Attackers

( #unworldly #attackers #flash #fiction )

"Looking at Paris in this light makes me wish for the safe times of our youth."

"But when was the last time you had this much fun?" came a smoke filled voice from behind her.

Jill glared at her brother's ash covered face. How could he consider this fun. She had just survived from being crushed with the burning beams of the Eiffel Tower. The hairs on her neck had been singed by the heat coming from the molten metal.

Reaching back she rubbed her neck to ascertain the damage. Her cooler hand touching her neck provided some relief to the pain that she was feeling. She looked around the dry dusty water for some sign of water that she could use. Resigned to her situation she gave up the look.

She looked back out the opening in the wall, just in time to see the unworldly projectile flying towards them. There was no time to escape, the world was doomed.

Churning through the mud
Radiated from your mind
Every single thought
At your beckon call
Till you are crushed by

Calling her name

( #poem #poetry #free #verse #name #gas )

The nice quiet night
Sitting there without fright
What a time
What a night

How could this peace end

Without warning,
sight, plea, or writ
A rumbling began to grow

Oh please
Oh please No.

How could this happen now
The pressure growing within
The displeasure showing

My mind anguishing
What if she hears
What if she knows
The terrible sound
It will come.


She did wail
"Did you call me"

( #time #poem #acrostic #BradyLB #pondering )

Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick 
I drink this ugly center link 
My demons bring me to the brink 
Every time I think 

 Though I have no time 
If I could only stop this crime 
My life would be able to chime 
Even Deep life's rhyme 

 Time is running out 
Is this my worst thinking blowout 
My mind is full of selfish doubt 
Even you should shout 

Time to get going 
In all things that you need doing 
Move your demons aside knowing 
Endings are showing

What is the next line of mine?
Rhyming all the time
Is it as bitter as lime
To do this crime
Everyone may leave on a dime.

Rain Storm

( #rain #storm #lightning #sad #happy #pondering #BradyLB )
Rain Rain Rain
Cold drops of life giving liquid
Sometimes pain

Lightning comes
Brightening the night windy sky
Drum drum drums

Thunders crash
Making us jump from the ringing
Dash dash dash

4th of July

( #4th #independence #fire #joy #poem ) 

 4th of the days in July 

Of every year's fight
Fire bursts in the night 

Joy can be heard around
Until daylights sound
Last comes the answer
Yes to another year

( #poem #lost #meaningless #sorrow)

How can this be true?
I have come down this path,
without a true clue.
The problems in this path
are many.

How I feel no one understands.
The closest ones to me rail
With them I can not band nor stand
For what a grand failure
I am.

They do not listen,
always talking.
As if they glisten
While balking.

One day I will be long and gone
They will complain
No one listening to there song
To their disdain
I am

( #what #poem #song )

What are we doing?
Why are we here?
Hear the sun singing
In the sky there.
The song is bright
But out of sight.
See we not the song
Loud as a big gong
Because it is always there.

Swimming Pools

( #poem #pool #swimming #summer )

Swimming Pools

Water everywhere
Nothing here to drink
Heat flows over there
Is that liquid pink?

Why did I get in?
So many doubles
His troubled strange grin
He just made bubbles

Where is the doorway
From away from filth?
I have paid my way
Keep what I have spilth.

Silly dog

What a silly day
You have brought this way
I cannot thank you
For how much I grew

I took you for a walk
Thinking you could not talk
I didn't know what to say
When I learned your way

You told me about the squirrels
How they made your head twirl
With their constant noise spawn
Until the day's dawn

You expounded on protecting the neighborhood
From the devious uniformed men, as you should
For they go to everyone's door
Looking for more

The giant metal beast that humans trust
You will continue to try to make them bust
Their tiny little legs move faster life
That is why you try to remove them with your teeth knife

Oh silly dog, what can I say
When you have told me your way
