Re: Aprés NaPo Bar & Grill

HI Folks, I'd love a pint of lager - I've heard we don't have 'real beer' in the states. That was a fun ride even with a late start and the preoccupation of moving. I hope the hours I spent writing instead of sorting and packing were worth it and don't come back to bite me in the end. I'll know in 2...

Re: National Poetry Month Celebration 2019 - Post Poems Here!

Verbiage in the rough... Stuff I have too much stuff, or so, everyone tells me. “Get rid of your hoard,” they say.  But what of my hobbies and creative interests, photographs and keepsakes? I admonish me. Do I really need to keep those baby teeth to glue to a picture frame with place related rocks m...

Re: National Poetry Month Celebration 2019 - Post Poems Here!

Hi Folks, My final three were haphazardly strewn together yesterday and the day before but I couldn't stay awake to post last night and fell asleep on the keyboard. Meant to post today but haven't been able to sit at the computer. Everything is on my laptop so I'm only posting the bits and pieces of...

Re: National Poetry Month Celebration 2019 - Post Poems Here!

I have three possibilities today and chose the worst to post. I'm too tired to flesh anything entertaining and meaningful out of so many ideas. I've written six pages to develop after we get settled in. Please excuse my excuse. I'm so sick of moving. Uprooted I hope I live long enough to enjoy a hom...

Re: National Poetry Month Celebration 2019 - Post Poems Here!

Moments It is a notion. It doesn’t heal – it’s not a doctor. You can tell it, but it can’t hear. Some say it will tell but has no voice It measures everything we do; naps, work, vacation, study, school, travel.  It doesn’t have legs so it can’t ‘run out' yet it marches on. You can’t keep it, It isn...

Re: National Poetry Month Celebration 2019 - Post Poems Here!

Forgotten When exhausted people move households  in the dark  or multiple cartons at once, things will misplace themselves  to resurface months later, in ruins.  Crated and labeled,  “IMPORTANT! PLEASE PUT THIS BOX IN THE HOUSE!”  carelessly left outside  beneath inadequate coverage come what may, ...

Re: National Poetry Month Celebration 2019 - Post Poems Here!

The Overview Effect. Brave explorers ride rockets into space to venture into a weightless world of science and wonder.   Once in orbit on the International Space Station, astronauts and cosmonauts are drawn to the Cupola’s seven windows  in awe of Earth’s eloquent beauty. No scintillating mortal wo...

Please pardon the hit and run. Stop in to drop in today's work in progress. NRA is the Nationa Rifle Association, for anyone who doesn't know. NRA  Bulletproof your dwellings, don Kevlar vests before the fray. It's a story made for telling and we can thank the NRA. When I was in grade school, we had...

Re: National Poetry Month Celebration 2019 - Post Poems Here!

Hi Folks, I wish I had time to respond to everyone's kind words and to comment and give the accolades you all deserve but we are packing up a household so it's all I can do to get a poem in. I haven't even had time to savor everything but I am looking forward to it. I hope we can keep these up in th...

Re: National Poetry Month Celebration 2019 - Post Poems Here!

Forsaken  “How dare you doubt me!”  Says the liar to authenticity with malignant deceit  and merciless half-truths. A devoted heart abandoned,  seared is scarred forever. Confidence, once eclipsed is never left unguarded. Survivors break chains of doubt wings unclipped; they fly unfettered  in sear...
