POETRY

POETRY IS ALCHEMY

POETRY IS ALCHEMY

AT LEAST IT'S MAGIC TO ME

YOU WRITE A RHYME ANY TIME

WHATEVER YOU HAVE IN MIND

THE THINGS YOU SAID WILL BE READ

INTERPRETED BY THEIR HEAD

TO THE TRUTH THEY FIND INSIDE

INTERPRETED BY THEIR MIND

EACH FIND THEIR OWN MESSAGES

READING ALL THOSE PASSAGES

IF THAT'S NOT MAGIC WHAT IS

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I REMEMBER WATCHING CHARMED AND ALL THOSE RHYMES IN THE BOOK OF SHADOWS I WAS LIKE...IS POETRY MAGIC. .AM I MAGIC...WHATS UP WITH ALL THOSE RHYMES THAT COME AT ALL TIMES...WHERE DO THEY COME FROM...WHO SENDS THEM TO ME...I'LL FIGURE IT OUT EVENTUALLY...MAYBE...WHATEVER IT IS I WILL KEEP WRITING. I FIND IT INVITING...WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THAT SUBJECT...DOES IT FEEL LIKE AUTOMATIC WRITING TO YOU...DOES IT COME MAGICALLY...ARE YOU A CHANNEL OR DO YOU THINK IT ALL COMES FROM YOU INSTEAD OF THROUGH YOU...HMMM...ITS A MYSTERY TO ME BUT I AM GRATEFUL THAT IT COMES TO ME AND SHARE IT WHEN IT DOES...

LAUGH UNTIL YOU CRY

LAUGHING AT ABSURDITY

ALWAYS SEEMS TO WORK FOR ME

LAUGHING WHEN THINGS MAKE NO SENSE

MAKES THEM FEEL LESS INTENSE

LAUGHING CUZ WE SHOULDN'T CRY

OFTEN MAKES ME WONDER WHY

LAUGH ATTACKS MAY COME AND GO

WHEN THEY'LL STRIKE YOU NEVER KNOW

GUESS I'D RATHER LAUGH THAN CRY

AT LEAST IT IS WORTH A TRY

EVER LAUGHED UNTIL YOU CRIED

THAT STUFF COMES FROM DEEP INSIDE

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I SAW AN ALL POETRY PROMPT THAT SAID TO WRITE ABOUT LAUGHING OR SOMETHING FUNNY...I WAS GONNA CALL IT LAUGHING BUT LAUGH UNTIL YOU CRY MAKES MORE SENSE...A BIT INTENSE...

SOLITUDE

SOLITUDE SURROUNDS ME

EVEN THO THERE'S CATS

SOMETIMES IT ASTOUNDS ME

WHEN THEY PLAY WITH RATS

 

BET THAT GOT YOU GOING

THINKING IT WAS TRUE

ALSO JUST NOT KNOWING

SOLITUDE WITHDREW

 

SOLITUDE CAN HAPPEN

EVEN WHEN THERE'S PETS

JUMPING IN YOUR LAP AND

I HAVE NO REGRETS

BEST FRIENDS

DID YOU EVER HAVE A FRIEND THAT COULD READ YOUR MIND

THOSE TYPES OF FRIENDS ARE FEW AND FAR BEHIND

WE SURE HAD A LOT OF GOOD TIMES

I REALLY MISS THAT OLD FRIEND OF MINE

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I WAS THINKING OF ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS FROM H.S. TERRY DROHO. SHE COULD READ MY MIND AND FOLLOW MY THOUGHTS. I USED TO JUMP AROUND QUITE A BIT AND  SHE COULD ALWAYS FOLLOW ME NO MATTER HOW SCATTERED MY THOUGHTS WERE...INCREDIBLE. MISS THOSE DAYS. MISS YOU TERRY. HOPE YOU ARE DOING WELL...

CAREFREE DAYS

WARM SPRING DAYS WITH A GENTLE BREEZE

REALLY MAKE YOU FEEL AT EASE

FEELING THE WARMTH OF THE SUN'S RAYS

REALLY MAKES YOU FEEL OK

BAREFOOT ON A SANDY SHORE

WAVES RUSH IN YOU WANT SOME MORE

SOUNDS OF BIRDS FLYING BY

FLUFFY CLOUDS IN THE SKY

SUNSETS ALWAYS BREATHTAKING

SO GREATFUL FOR TIMES LIKE THESE

WHETHER THEY ARE IN MY MIND

OR HAPPENING IN REAL TIME 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I LOVE WARM SPRING OR SUMMER DAYS WITH A GENTLE BREEZE ESPECIALLY AT THE BEACH OR ANYWHERE IN NATURE REALLY.

STORMY WEATHER

THE SKY IS CRYING AGAIN

WONDER WHAT MADE IT SO SAD

THE LIGHTNING STRIKES LIKE IT'S MAD

THE WIND BLOWS OUT OF CONTROL

STORMY WEATHER WILL BE HAD

Author's Notes/Comments: 

WHEN YOU SEE RAIN ON A WINDOW PANE IT SOMETIMES LOOKS LIKE TEAR DROPS...THAT'S WHAT GOT ME GOING WITH THIS ONE...
