SisterWhere are the words?
For the first time, I'm lost.
You have wronged me, in the past
But always I knew it wouldn't last
For you were there, to quench argumental flame
When mom and I fought, we both you'd tame
I remember in Denver you wanted but fame
never mind the lack of privacy
You wanted people to know your name
When you'd sing, your voice'd be strong
Now I now I haven't seen you in so long a time
To you, I've written a rhyme.
It doesn't flow, in fact it's poo
But it's time to tell the truth to you.
Yes I've wronged you in the past.
But I wish you'd remember it didn't last.
You asked how the family's doing,
Well, we're sure not out canoeing.
When we go out to eat
It's almost like a formal meet.
We stare at the walls
Or read the paper, conversation stalls,
We try to ignore that fourth empty seat,
And miss how you'd make us laugh,
Your humor unique.
Your name is getting near taboo,
As eating a sacred caribou
(there are so many things wrong with that line)
Damn these tears upon this pag
the poetsWidespread love is almost gone
For you my love, my Poetry, song.
But the poets will march alway on and on
Lifting our voices
Dipping our plumes
In the ocean of emotion, the well of muse
From the heart and through the veins
Through you we cleanse our stains
To the hand and in the pen,
Giving us strength, not to be broken
Others may turn their backs to you
And become like animals in the zoo,
Never beyond their bars they look,
Through from your depth they may have took
A moment of peace
The truth spiraled
You may have given them, my love,
Wings as that of a dove
To fly above rain cloud
And through the stormiest sea
We poets and fans alike
May weather so long as we have thee
We poets shall march on.
oh happy dayCalloo! Callay!
The wind was at my back today
And the stars before my eyes!
I lived today in a world where
The graceful 'lopes don't shy!
A beautiful day!
The ever changing sky
Bloomed red and blue
Such colors true,
And the evening stars shone bright!
A beautiful day!
A sonnet only fits
This day titwillows sing
And bluebirds dance
As laughing monkeys steal more pants!
This joyful day
Let's not delay!
visionAnd there were hairs
And they were strings
Once was separate, a different thing
It wound around the others
Trying to keep the from falling
From reaching the end
Faster and faster it wound and pulled
Upward, upward, its friends it lulled.
And it was the shortest
And slowest to grow
It's greatest fear-
Only reality- being too slow
And I was this string
And I was this hair
And I was desperate
To save all who were there
And the others were strings
And the others were hairs
Slipping free of my self
Not wanting kept there
And they grew faster
The harder I pulled
I could not support them
For too many they were
And these people
Who were other hairs, strings,
Taught me one thing
One of me, a thin hair, string,
Couldn't save the thousand
From that which they bring
Secret QuestionsI know my heart isn't the biggest
But since it isn't the smallest
If I gave it to you, would you hold it?
I know my soul isn't the purest
But it isn't black
And if I show it to you
Would you disdain it?
Or try to restrain it?
I'm not the strongest
But I'll lift you up high
And wish to know, will you bring me the sky?
My love compares not to Jesus
But still it runs deep-my spirit is one of the meekest-
But if I show it
Would you put it to sleep?
My poems aren't the keenest
But if I share them
Would you laugh?
I know my eyes aren't the deepest
But would you look into them
And call me your sweetest?
Tree DanceFeel the wind
The trees are calling
For me they send
Back and forth
With the wind they sway
It's safe in their embrace
I wish I could stay
Folded in their branches close
Following as my spirits rose
Back and forth the trunk does sway
Neither up nor down the branches stay
Swaying, jumping, leaping dance
Silent somber mono-stance
All this while I sit, entranced,
Never, child, miss the chance
To be within
And know the Dance
Keep in Touch!
