Have you ever seen a sea shell tossed?
   flailing in waves, once full of time!

Have you ever seen a sea shell land?
   crashing in sands, once full of chimes!

   It withers away, cracked under feet ...
      or a nostalgic ornament ... cloven be!

   Is this I? Or you? I? Mirror, mirror,
      see us through?
Oh how I felt so alive the day
that I kissed my bride I held our wedding
certificate
and all through the wedding photo's
and not once did I let
It fall from my hand Oh
so proud that I truly
was
for had me wife
at one time I
would have thought  Impossible she gifted a son but not did I
think
not even for a moment I'd
be laying  a Red Rose on
her
grave
I gone from the proudest day to my saddest day when a Red
Rose I laid on her grave a
Rose
that said It all a single red rose for my sweetheart
Queenarama May 8
I’m going to a faraway place she said...
Just for a while...
Her toes wriggled in the warm sand and a silly seagull laughed and danced in the sweet wind
6) My coconut island
This fable dreams many a word, lost
and frozen; parchments still linger
where love is gone ... bitter costs!
   Sentences adrift, still
   in light; cast away
   with hearts in flight!
      Heroes stand,
      pain lands ...
         words?
I'm
sure it's not
a
coincidence
that
God
gave us
two ears
and one mouth.
Listen twice
before you speak.
Because you can only
speak once.
And you can't take back anything you've said.

I spoke to Helen this morning whilst looking
at Wedding picture on the wall
told Helen how much love her, but she said Johnny you've gotta get a
life
but just never forget  that  I was once your
wife
And Untrue I'll always remember how could I ever forget
this lady called Helen
who had given me so much herself
though out her short
life
But she said Johnny gotta get a  life but never forget that I once was your wife and remember the life together we once
had
I spoke to this morning whilst looking at our wedding photo on the wall, Helen  and I told her how much I love her

"Look before you cross the street,"
Mother said,
"or you'll get run over
by a speeding semi
and your body will become flat.
No paramedic will be able to scrap
your body off the ground.
Only raccoon's claws can
remove your body.
A perfect road pizza.
They'll drag your flat corpse
to their homes,
fry you up,
using the bread that they
got from the garbage as toppings
and eat you for dinner.
inspired by mother said poems, made in creative writing
I wrote this poem
I remind with my heart
My mind repeated it

It was like my name
But when I met
I forgot even my name

I tried to tell the poem
It was the awful as the scamp
My face got red

She collected her nervous
She said what that marvelous!
I shamed and said,

I forgot all things
As I saw your brilliance
She ran in steps

That she might fall on the earth
sawing her brilliant make me forget everything even my name
We saw that
It is  so wide
But it seemed so clever

She kidnapped that meat
She ran and disappeared
They said, cat must do that
Or wild rat

We tried to chase
The question was
How did she know?
The wise boy said

Why did the meat    
Was not covered  
We did not answer

As it was not wise answer
now every right was lost, they put more worst
when the prophet immigrated to Yathrib
it was called the lighted city, after he immigrated
it was filled with new sound, he advised

them at little word,"
greeted everyone you look
feed every hunger , he seemed

pray to the God at night
you will feel right
and enter the heaven without fight

or hard or any effort
that the meaning he said
could we do it
the hunger covered every world, the rich countries pay for weapons. if they paid for persons the world will change
