Re: Isle of Pines

Isle of Pines tips and sways  on lily pad tiled water: green circles float succulent centers visited by nectar seekers flyiing out from shore dizzy with sugar and sun sparkles. Emerald spires distant, dark and cool against burning blue, hovered over by hot-air-balloons blooming pastel in rising air...

Re: Matrix

Matrix Before the cauldron at the center settled down, content to build mountains, islands, before continents sorted themselves out  on the spinning surface, before floors of seas never seen turned to stone, how did crystals, raindrops and most things wet decide to harden, freeze, grow six-sided, w...

Re: The Second of May

~ The Second of May The ticker has flipped over. Digital hallways have fallen silent again – just me and Baidu in a wordless, ceaseless reunion.    Bing will appear presently. Ichiro too, I expect, and the corporate reps - Alexa, Alta Vista, Heritrix, and four of the Googles. Though they all wink i...

Re: Aprés NaPo Bar & Grill

Imagine we are in a gymnasium on hands and knees.  There is a peanut in front of each of us and our task is to push the peanut with our nose from one baseline to the other.  Our elbows, shoulders and necks tire at differing rates.  Our knees become sore.  The peanut curls off the nose occasionally....

Re: Aprés NaPo Bar & Grill

zCW5LW0pkWU Hi Tracy -  Thanks for the kind words. I thought I'd try the button above for inserting a Youtube - I have a few songs out there that a buddy put there for me cause he could.  So I'm trying to insert the link to one of my songs. (see the link above)  If it works, perhaps I can ask him t...

Re: Aprés NaPo Bar & Grill

And if we can keep the IPA's flowing to  Aimé the Song-Maker maybe we get our Anthem as well.  Wahooo! Tom, and every one of you NaPo mates: While I was away from NaPo those last few days of April, music came from my guitar.  As most often is the case for me, music is the first step in the writing ...

Re: rocking chair

The Hidden Treasure Yeah, it’s me, over here in the corner under Grandma’s afghan, your first purchase of new furniture many years ago, your oaken rocking chair. Alone on the second floor of the furniture store, remember how you dithered about, comparing wood grain patterns, simplicity of design, c...

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 o...

Re: Aprés NaPo Bar & Grill

I wish you all a plentiful harvest of poems. Reading such varied forms further stimulates me to experiment. It is the world of sensory experiences expressed in imagery that you all expressed  in poetry that stays with me. Merci. Marcel, aka, lecram6.
