Hard to Believe -1500th Post #blogging #poetry #autism

In words we say it

in pictures we take it

and in our blogs

we mold and make it

Fifteen hundred blogs are gone

fifteen hundred more beyond

what they’ll say

or what they spawn

 A statement made

 (to rest) a character laid

the things we do

with poem and spade

So gather more

we’ll gather less

pen fifteen hundred?

please be my guest

This drop in the bucket blog  of over 1500 poems.  (many more still archived other for publishing sent on)

In Andrew’s World

What is there in the rain

a drop of H2O

maybe a lesson in science

a place for your mind to go

It comes from the clouds you see

*

a mystery within a mist

returning to  earth’s soft floor

all just part of a cycle

pieces of info to store

***

In Andrew’s world the rain has life

there’s color, action and more

it’s big its small its filled with light 

swims in rivers and streams

things that float things that fly

*

Why just some of the  things  he sees

enjoying this gift from the sky

Andrew’s mind lives  in  the drop

looking from below and from up high

****

so much he sees  because he believes

he goes far beyond where our mind stops

 coming together with those from afar

there is much in this world of  his drops

*

I listen for the plops

and strain for  Andrew’s view

it opens my mind to something unseen

 reserved for the few

what a fabulous place to believe

***

~Children like Andrew who are autistic often see beyond the restricted point where many see.

Their minds tend to blossom and adventure beyond the outer reaches of the unknown.

Dream Worthy #King #haiku #photography

a dream

In the beginning

a world created

“it was good”

*

slander, hate, murder

light of perfection turned off

dark haze

*

silent words believed

held close to the heart

centuries old

*

written in stone

read in eyes young and old

carried by a wave

*

hands of time

seasons move along

many share a dream

*

Dr. King was a visionary who saw the world the way God had created it. Men were brothers with each other; there was no enmity. King had a dream to see wrongs righted. We celebrate this great man whose vision was given by God.

Each Written Word #poetry #photography

Each word was a thread
an interwoven part
tears like dew drops
 from a broken heart
*
Each word was a plea
silent call to you
catching the phrase
before the wind it blew
*
Each word echoed love
tumbled in the waves
polished over time
waiting for the day
*
Each word a duet
a  poem in the dust
 inscribing now my fate
your embrace, I trust
*
Each word an inspiration
of stories that I live
 inked is the promise
etched upon my skin
*
While penning, what does a poet seek ~ Fame, understanding, love, expression?

The Stellar Chorus #poetry #photography

cold prismic

My eyes blinked

I was swept away

if only by chance

it was a secret display

*

A hand grasped

I saw a link

a world woven nest

my eyes blinked

*

stars sang  harmony

celestial flower filled basket

by chance I caught its melody

that my hand grasped

*

a clever array

ripe with lovely memory

my flesh tingled

and stars sang beautiful harmony

*

 I took to the stars in this fun interweaving of words prompted by Sunday Whirl

The Day the … Died #flashfiction #vandalism #Lincoln

A long, long time ago…
Words meant something
promises meant more
you’d turn the sprinkler on and there was an instant neighborhood party
add hand churned ice cream and the old people joined in
but that was a long, long time ago
now we rush around to the loud din of the money factor
churning out paper money faster than we can replace it
and no one from the neighborhood joins in because
water is more valuable than money
the ice cream is synthetic
and the man who delivers ice cream
knows more about the deal with Meth
it doesn’t matter the ice cream is synthetic
as are the promises that important men make
in the shadow of those from
a long, long time ago…

The words on this wall

the statement that they leave

someone watches all

the words on the wall

someone watches all

no one would believe

The words on this wall

“the aliens didn’t leave”

*

The eyes have it

they took my mind and all

the eyes have it

 painted me on a wall

the eyes have

no where safe within

the eyes have it

in a mind drained spin

Today the letter is “T”. Tag, Triolet,  taken (by aliens), tell tale sign of Doctor Who

This year for  A to Z challenge, I am using the Nautilus as my inspiration all month. The shell has many chambers (at least enough to fit all the letters.)  You will find poetry,  You will find some dark stuff (as I am attempting to branch into the horror genre), You will also see a smattering of short stories or prose (some with children in mind) others as lessons that we can all learn from. I look forward to  meeting you and getting to know some talented writers over this month long writing journey. Please check over at the A to Z challenge and see what they are up to; they are a fine bunch of folks.
