First kiss
Mrs Timetable Jan 2020
Standing in my doorway
After an evening out with friends
He asked can I give you a kiss
I said yes
But I kept giggling
And giggling
Every time he got close
I kept giggling
I kept giggling
I couldn't stop
Obvious nerves
He waited so patient for me to stop
But I didn’t stop
Finally he covered my eyes

First kiss
This kiss was from my husband of 25 years. My one and only love. I think it’s pretty awesome.

Your newest love poem
Mrs Timetable Mar 2020
You looked at me
Cleared your handsome voice
Took a deep breath
Forgot all the words
Then kissed me

Beautifully expressed my sweet
Sometimes you don’t need words

Broken
Mrs Timetable Apr 2020
Like a chip
A crayon and
A bad habit

Never apologize
For being broken

Decidedly Questionable
Mrs Timetable Apr 2020
And I ran with
The ribbon cutting
Ceremonial scissors
Celebrating my brave
Resolution to not
Make bad decisions

Love like stretchy pants
Mrs Timetable Jun 2020
The first time
You told me
I love you
I believed it

I put the
I love you
In my
GIANT
Heart
Envelope

And
   Hearing
I love you’s
Everyday since
I still
Believe
It

My
Heart
Envelope
Has
Just enough room
For the next
Days
I love you’s

Because it’s
E-x-p-a-n-d-a-b-l-e
Like
Stretchy
Pants
Seriously silly

Just peachy
Mrs Timetable Jul 2020
Life can sometimes
Be the pits
But it’s the pits
That protect the seeds
That make
Things grow
Into the sweet and tender
Now I want peaches

Stuffing knocked out
Mrs Timetable Apr 2020
Thank you
For pushing my stuffing
Back in place
When I have one of
Those days

I would do it myself
But I can’t reach

It means more
Coming from you anyway

We will find our needle
And thread someday

Love,
Your grumpy 
Brown eyed bear
Tough day support

Escape
Mrs Timetable Aug 2020
I want to get away
Get away to that place
That place with the balcony, the umbrella
And the cold sand

What if  I can’t
What if I can’t escape
Escape to that space
That place in another land

Would you please just
Just give me that touch
The escaping sensation  
Of your healing hands
Your writing hand needs a vacation anyways

Love aroma
Mrs Timetable Aug 2020
I love that
Aromatic field
We run in
Coming back
Spent...

Scented like
Each other

How it reminded me of Fall
Mrs Timetable Jan 2020
I love Fall time

I love the colors

We came to be an official couple in the Fall

But I almost died

In the Fall as well

That day had so many things, smells, places

You saved my life twice

I was thinking of the way
the air felt today

How it reminded me of Fall

Then all I wanted to do was cry

I believe you and I both
have PTSD from it

Just each is different

I get that ugly feeling everything will be
taken away from me

Now I understand why

Price Less
Mrs Timetable Aug 2020
Some days you feel like that best seller
Up front, all glorious on display

Some days you feel like you’re in the the 90% off bin...
(Only needed to prop a door open)
Ups and downs... but you’re  still priceless

If the pieces were
Crystal clear?

Lend
Mrs Timetable Aug 2020
Lend me your eyes
And I will lend you my ears

For you
I can shed your tears

For me
You can whisper away my fears
For better or worse

Disquiet
Mrs Timetable Oct 2020
Screaming out
From the inside
Roaring as a train whistle
Only the restless can hear
And then...
Quickly
Fades away
It doesn't last long but it catches your attention and takes over

Float
Mrs Timetable Jul 2020
Its too deep
Right now

No diving
No laps
No splashing

Floating
For a while

Maybe the
Monster
Won't see me
Stay quiet pain

For the bad day(ers)
Mrs Timetable Mar 2020
Sometimes there
Just isn’t a pill
It’s just the will
Of a grey day

Go away ugly coat weather
Hide under my bed
Come out when we need you
But just not today

Twirl in my PJs
Because that’s what I need
I crave more sleep
So down my head I lay

Maybe tomorrow
Maybe not even then
I’ll deal with it when i need to
Then I can pick up my pen
Some days are a complete waste of thought. Try again tomorrow maybe. For a fellow poet and any others having a bad day.

One Rose
Mrs Timetable Aug 2020
Don't bring me petals
Plucked to perish
Leave the flowers
In the ground to thrive
I would rather have
Your words to cherish
Planted in me grounded
Always blooming
With surprise
It only took one rose and one poem for "us" to be.  I requested "no more flowers please",  but many many many more poems. I got my wish.

Bookstore
Mrs Timetable Aug 2020
The scent I miss
Not for reasons of bliss
But simply this

The scent of old paper
To read a new caper
Or of the candlestick maker

So many worlds to explore
You even had a second floor
I miss you old bookstore
Online shopping stinks when you can’t smell the paper

Only a tree
Mrs Timetable Oct 2020
Heartbroken
To see hundreds of years
Uprooted and thrown
To the ground
Broken
Destroyed
A wicked wind
So violent
It took out the young
Newly rooted
The ancient
The massive
Weak from drought
Majestic and still
Laying on their sides
Looking imposing
Root history exposed
For all to see
For me
An honor
To witness
Laying there
Respecting more now
Than when you were born
You did make a name
Appreciating now
You weren't only a tree
96 MPH winds took out an incredible amount of trees this past week. I've never looked at these trees like I did this week.  Not to mention the power of the wind.  Massive trees uprooted and knocked down. It was death. And it was heartbreaking.
564 · Mar 2020
Spare me the tears
Mrs Timetable Mar 2020
Make me sob for you
Sweeping break up song
Make my tears whell up
Emotionally written script
Make misty eyes for me
Baby anything to music
Make me be blind with tears
Speaking of all our years
Out of the blue waterworks
Holding me tight that first night
Let if flow freely
There's plenty of tears to spare
If it moves you, its OK to cry.

Our son’s blue eyes
Mrs Timetable May 2020
I wished to paint
The brown birds
Outside
The color
Of our son’s blue eyes
Inside
To my amuse
Which part did
I disabuse
The part were you can
Wish
Colors on birds
Or that we have
A son
And his eyes are
Blue
BLT challenge word of the day “disabuse”.  Sorry it’s so exiguous

First contact
Mrs Timetable Feb 2020
My hand was so skinny
Yours strong and gentle
We connected them together
So nervous to touch
We were the observatory
The new couple
How did we look?
I felt safe
Yours so warm
A mans hands I never held
In this way for love
I still grab these hands
When I feel sad and or glad
Always to feel safe
Even to calm my cries
Or my pains
There to heal me
Make me know everything’s ok
They are so smart
They teach
They write
But best of all they hold me
And they said “I do” and
They most certainly do
Thank you for having two
First time we held hands I remember like yesterday. It was at an Observatory

Social issues
Mrs Timetable Mar 2020
Social distancing: difficult but doable

Social security distancing: they had better not!

Sociopath distancing: no problem

Social media distancing: impossible

Socialite distancing: also no problem

Social worker distancing: probably shouldn’t
Just playing with terms. Not intended  to offend anyone.

Collected the reward
And ....

Me, Irene, Brad and Chip
Mrs Timetable Jan 2020
Minding my own business
Hanging out with Irène
I heard “you’re perfect”!
What does this mean?

Don’t think much of myself
Bumpy hard skin, scars a plenty
Someone thinks I’m awesome
Fine with me just let em

I had to be cut open and gutted
To see my true beauty
Had to say goodbye to Brad
Been there for me, it was his duty

Look how beautiful we are Irène!
Creamy, soft, luscious to the taste
I’m so happy we are in the bowl
Did I just hear many yells of praise

Grown men with helmets on
Throwing around a ball
Everyone wants some of us
Yelling at their screens over a call

Who’s that Irène? He’s something!
That’s Chip! He’s handsome I say
Strong perfectly salty and built
I hope I can meet him today

Now it’s me and Chip forever
Irène set her own sights
At this Super Bowl party
Crunchy smooth love at first of  many bites
Avocados are one of  the best things made from nature. I love them so much it’s silly

Puzzled
Mrs Timetable Feb 2020
Tell us all your
Hopes and dreams
But keep your opinions
And your hands to yourself
No wonder children are confused
505 · Feb 2020
You asked for it
Mrs Timetable Feb 2020
You are
What you repeat
Broken record broken

The obscene
Love to cause a scene
Especially when deleted

It’s great when
The garbage
Takes itself out
501 · Apr 2020
Little things
Mrs Timetable Apr 2020
Covering my exposed
When you know it’s cold
Warms my whole body
Because it’s love
That it knows
Making sure I’m warm enough.  It’s the little things
497 · Feb 10
Use caution
Mrs Timetable Feb 10
As I sit here
Tears cry
I wonder why
My eyes burn so much
It’s because of the thought
It’s because of the why
I put Capsaicin on my sore back
And then touched my eye
Tip: DON’T do that

Use caution and gloves while using Capsaicin🥵 yes it works !!😅

She-shell
Mrs Timetable Jul 2020
The she-shell
On your He-shore
Comes from
An oyster with a pearl
Or a giant crab
Depends on the kind of wave
That washed her in
Inspired by Cloudydaze style of poem

Polka dot dress
Mrs Timetable Mar 2020
•Black and white dotted cotton•
•Soft lines and flowing•
•So stylish I said this polka dot dress•
••••••                          ••••••
•••••••••••
Twirlin­g-will they notice me in it
Will they see how pretty I feel
It’s new to me, I feel so real
•••••••••••
Too young just yet
For attentions like that
Slow down late bloomer, not too fast
•••••••••••
I could still hope for stares
And wish for admirers
Would anyone care for braided hair
•••••••••••
Years later my true love says
I remember seeing you when we were younger
You stood out among the rest
••••••••••••
Really?
You saw me?
You remember that?
What did you see?
Tell me!
••••••••••••
A Long french braid
Hoop earrings and•••
You
had
on
a
polka
dot
dress



Real feelings. True story. You just never know who’s noticing you, could be your future love.
On 3-18-1995 You married me and I married you. The dress worked! Happy anniversary

Skill
Mrs Timetable May 2020
I must say
I faintly recall
The telling of your
All
Intensely sensed
Dream
I paid no mind
How very rude
As drool came out
Of my mouth
A cat nap
Ensued
You left me in my slumber
I now understand
My blunder...
“Listening” really is
A skill
Chalk this up
To empirical research
I will
HP poet BLT’s word of the day “Empirical”

Trees have feelings too
Mrs Timetable Feb 2020
Trees cry deep within
We-unable to hear the sound
Barely brushing a leaf
Knowing it responds happily
Exchanging breaths
Forcefully accepting the water
It was given from above
Pulling it in so it can survive
Even a few drops it cherishes
Roots go deeper than you can see
Protecting feeding beauty breathing
It does it for you
It does it for me
463 · Jun 2020
As is
Mrs Timetable Jun 2020
The only piece
You let anyone see
Is the broken one....

And
It is beautiful
As is
Sometimez  "as is" is good enough. Some things can't be fixed

My cheesy love poem
Mrs Timetable Apr 2020
Looking for love
    Is it me?
Seeds of love
    Is it you?
Falling in love
    It takes two
Landing in love
    This much is true
Grounded in love
    Can it be me?
Rooted deep in love
    Can it be with you?
Unbreakable love
     Forever please
Our common food love
     It could be cheese
I love cheesy stuff

I doubt it
Mrs Timetable Apr 2020
Can you make anything
Believable from doubt?

Worth 8 points
The word Doubt cannot be scrambled as a five letter word (but doubt can be changed)

Tulip
Mrs Timetable May 2020
Why plant
A fragile heart
In the wrong place
Setting it up
To suffocate
Like a tulip
In a xeriscape
BLT word of the day “xeriscape”

Spray color
Mrs Timetable Jan 2020
“You should cover your grey’s, they make you look too old.”

Your lack of tact makes you look insecure. But I would never tell you.
Think before you speak

Complaint desk
Mrs Timetable Jan 2020
Some people enjoy complaining
It makes them happy to gripe

But who complains about the complainers?

I’m even going to complain about the word complain, complain, complain, complain. It’s annoying.

Do we feel better now? Sure do.

Dollhouse
Mrs Timetable Jan 30
Like a broken
Empty dollhouse
Fully exposed for everyone see
Walls down
Fascinated
I peer inside...
And there is nothing
But sad loneliness
A giant 200 year old tree fell on a beautiful two story home I admired for years and now they are tearing it down. It was very eerie seeing inside the empty home. All the front walls were gone.  It looked helpless.
430 · Jan 2020
It must be Monday
Mrs Timetable Jan 2020
A roach came to work with me
in my shoe.

It's a true story.

I shook him out of my laces

And he joined in with a new group
of bugs on the ground.

He can get renter's insurance for
$10 a month.

I'm back, eating lunch in the car
by the path.

And cake.

That's a start.

I do
Mrs Timetable Jul 2020
When I ask you if you love me
You say “I do”!
When I ask you if you think I’m pretty
You say “I do”!
When I ask if you think Im a hard worker
You say “I do”!

Then I sometimes wonder why you put up with all my complaints and questions about life and do you really need to hear it over and over and over again,
I remember  25 years ago you said ....,

    “I do”!
Thank you for listening to all my needs for reassurance and hope
Mr Timetable

Downpayment
Mrs Timetable Feb 2020
Invent the money
Blood for the down

I need some air
That’s gonna cost you a pretty fare

Water I can’t live without
Costs you to drink from the spout

Do you want my life I say?
No- not really
it’s not worth much
these days
I can’t believe the things we have to pay for
413 · Apr 2020
Thumbs down
Mrs Timetable Apr 2020
Negative Fonzie
Are your fries cold?
Is your soda warm?
Why the thumbs down?
Changing everyone’s thumbs
To reflect you are bummed
Not too cool
Leave a comment if
You are dismayed
The way you do it
Not well played
Someone keeps thumbs downing  all comments on some poems. It’s really annoying.

Warm
Mrs Timetable Jun 2020
The sun is going away
Peeking a little light through trees
Giving brilliance to the simple leaves
Twinkling waving goodbye
When your done visiting the other side
Waking them with shine
While we all have one sleep
Warm us all again tomorrow please
Don’t really need to ask
It will happen regardless of me
Something you can always count on

That makes sense
Mrs Timetable Feb 2020
Perfume, garlic, wet dog
That makes a lot of scents

Paying your lunch tab with coins
That makes a lot of cents.

I texted you all day today
That really doesn’t make sents.
Playing with words. Sents isn’t a word I know that’s why it makes no sense
