Worth waiting for in POETRY

Let’s have a look-see at the paint chips because its time to paint,  our CHIPS can be viewed below.

       *************

 

Pining away thoughts of future
Reflection through a looking glass.
The other side of life appeared.

Seeing Heaven a perfect place
Worth waiting for STOP return, don’t
Look back— forget Disco fever!

Seek toward that field of poppies
A nursery, tulips in spring
Follow the scent of sweet Iris.

#FOWC, Photo Challenge, Word Prompts

Today, my Birthday #FOWC

May 18, 2020, and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC) designed for me — PHOTOGRAPH  Photo of my wedding and one of myself and baby number one.

Since today is special to me, I composed a little poem, added a few photographs — thank you Fandango for the inspiration!  EIGHTY YEARS OLD todayme

Cinquains poetry

Today in May
Thinking of my mother
Her joy and happiness for me

Ah! Another Challenge, Mindlovesmisery's, poetry

Why are we here? Welsh Poetry

What a challenge!  I tried!  See below

Rhupunt is a Welsh poetry form. Here are the guidelines for the rhupunt:

  • The form can be broken down into lines or stanzas
  • Each line or stanza contains 3 to 5 sections
  • Each section has 4 syllables
  • All but the final section rhyme with each other
  • The final section of each line or stanza rhymes with the final section of the other lines or stanzas

*******************

 

why are we here
to drink a beer
to add some cheer
a bad omen

seek a good friend
but learn to bend
stretch to the end
write a poem

keep it simple
nothing sinful
see the steeple
you’re almost home

I WONDER

Here we are again; time to paint a little, our PAINT CHIPS can be viewed below.

I WONDER

Where is Heaven? Immortal,
As an Aloe Vera plant!
Hidden — a total eclipse.
Where is this place we wonder
Wishful key to happiness!

Visualize the sunset
Looking at the Orion!
We rest near a calm marine.
Dreams of angels rolling out
That red carpet for winners!

Sorrowful tearful eyes seek
Cliff dwellings to hide within —
Lost their key to happiness,
Do they continually
Meditate where Heaven is?
