I'm counting time
to pass them away
to do all the nothings I still can
that will be soon forgotten
                                 in the time.

Amy Hilton Oct 12

Mike Hauser had a brilliant idea to “Pass the pen” and see where it got us.  This, Friends, is the result.

I write of the stars
I write of the moon
I write of the things
That I love to do
I write of the lies
While telling the truth
And when I am through
I pass the pen to you


I read the things
that went before
and add my thoughts
for you to write more
of things we love
and things we hate
so here's the pen,
now contemplate!


I wait like a kid
the anticipation
breaks my quiet
like a train in station
with thoughts
pouring out
like the traveling weary
so here's the pen
"now what's my hurry?"


While looking at this
And studying that
As our poetic peruse
Comes up to bat
With much more in store
From the writer's’ knack
I jot down my last line
Then pass the pen back


and now it get's fun
with my lines and yours
at least it keeps me
from doing my chores!
fingers be nimble
brain be quick
I finished this part
now here's the Bic.


With words tattered and torn
I have you here to mend
Don’t know where I’m going
Brain lights on dim
With little or no warning
Here it comes again
All on a whim
I hand you the pen


so who will care
if we make no sense
“these poets here
must have the bends!”
but all the same
we’ve had our yen
it was a good run
let's retire the pen

Thanks Mike!  That was fun.  Now maybe some of you can grab a buddy and see what happens.  To put this in context, all the stanzas went round in under an hour.  A dizzying frenzy.

You have much,    
                        share,
   others less fortunate give a moment for..

And life, live it with humility..
                    thoughts to think deeply..
Always remember there is always
           someone who is less fortunate than you.

                                 For no reason of there own

I puff,
I pass

i learn a life lesson

share with people it pays if it doesnt it satisfies
ST Rossa Sep 26

To see you smile,
I'd write a comedy with a golden backdrop,
to set the right stage.
I have not yet heard you speak,
but how much i would give for a simple whisper.

Poor fool,
deluded in this delusion
wishing and silently screaming for you to turn,
look at me and know that I am here.

Like an eternal after, I'd wait for a gesture of yours
to put myself at your feet,
and when I see come my way
the sweet on my palate tells me
that your going to stop and stay.

But I end up swallowing bitter,
when you keep on going
and you pass me by.

ST Rossa Sep 24

I saw you pass by,
and while I follow your gaze I know that your light feeds me,
that your very presence is a mixture of my turbulent loneliness.

Your memory gives me mental calmness,
While i trying to define how you light up
and blur the rest of the galaxy in anesthesia.

And then there's only you,

You, elegant and absent
without being aware of having turned every corner of my mind.
You, walking indifferent
making people into inert statues
before the light that you give off.

I have never had you
And even so I miss you
it's this blessed poison
it's the craziness I inhabit
it makes me want to be good.

And i would be more between your fingers.

You, impossible as the sky,
unachievable as the past,
And me as far from death when I dream of you by my side.

ST Rossa Sep 23

I saw you pass by and again time stopped,
it was your blush that changed my hue
And left me mute.

While i try to undress your eyes, you leave mine blind,
with an imperfect sigh
i think you are the perfection
to which I aspire.

I still stubble and lose my senses every time you come by.
 You approach me, although
never so much as to feel your smell.

And your taste,
your taste is the greatest utopia
I stay in the wrong thinking that someday
I could conquer you with my poetry.

Stop dragging up the pass it only stunts your growth

She endeavor sentimentally to enliven chocolate
till we're both finally in a rotunda as sweet
and intuitively match with just a Hershey's kiss
while a distraction is like something on screen
with their soundtrack and film avant-garde today.

Having rough days as my life will receive them in a cold world without a dream,
let me draw a bath,
Like the kid that was the rose that never got to bloom or breath the poison air in
his lungs while stuck up your grass,
Is life worth living just enough to settle?
the cash increases and we know we are in trouble,
problems come and go , just have faith and let it pass.

Is there a light at the end of something we don't know exist?
when your at the bottom struggling , that'd be too hard to miss,
looking at yourself in the mirror , like what the fuck is this?
Don't have time for any lectures that the teachers will give,
family members casting out children,
and all these companies make millions,
off all ya'll pain and suffering,
like the homeless sleeping under pavilions,
looking for jobs for the summer,
Is your luck bad? so you wondered,
carrying some feelings down under.


Having rough days as my life will receive them in a cold world without a dream,
let me draw a bath,
Like the kid that was the rose that never got to bloom or breath the poison air in
his lungs while stuck up your grass,
Is life worth living just enough to settle?
the cash increases and we know we are in trouble,
problems come and go , just have faith and let it pass.
