Relief By Kay Ryan (November 22, 2012)

We know it is close
to something lofty.
Simply getting over being sick
or finding lost property
has it in the leap,
the purge, the quick humility
of witnessing a bith-
how love seeps up
and retakes the earth.
There is a dreamy
wading feeling to your walk
inside the current
of restored riches,
clocks set back,
disasters averted.

Nonsense or Sense Making Lines!

No peace without needs at ease,
No rule without confusion,
No church without faith,
No grief without love,
No forgiveness without recompense,
No pay without working,
No respect without an open mind,
Day and night, truth and false,
Everything rotates and plays games,
Words, hopes, and dreams,
either written or spoken,
they run down the streams
and dodge devils,
on Earth or in Heaven!

Succeed By Emily Dickinson

Success is counted sweetest
By those who never succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.
Not one of all the purple Host
who took the Flag today
Can tell the definition
So clear of Victory.
As he defeated-dying-
On whose forbidden ear
the distance strains of triumph
Burst agonized and clear!

Hearts and Their Fate

There are different types of hearts,
Some are open-minded, soft,
they carry grace and quality;
Some are less flexible, wooden,
or posses mean and harmful elements,
Opinions differ,
Characters vary,
Actions follow desires of hearts,
You cannot always win,
If you occupy sinful heart;
you maybe recognized
if you care, create, and share;
Words either touch
or hurt,
Fill your heart with love and
bless you, today,
tomorrow, and
in the years to come...

The Night Sky By Penny Harter

When something taps your window
in the dark-a large moth
beating its pale wings,
or a pungent branch of lilac
scraping in the wind-
You wake to the night sky
pouring in upon you.
You have been waiting
all your life for this,
open as a harp.
And when a bird cried out,
from the depth of the lilac.
where it has slept every night
undisturbed, you understand
that it too has opened
to a shining that sings.

November Holding off Coast of North America

This case is like an arm,
and helpless! Nothing
can be removed from the open palm
as the shivering emotion coming.
high above, at the ninth level Heave,
on the altar, pewter air jets hum with owen,
the extreme and intense battles close,
and the polar forces integrate, upon the floes.

Blanket Roll Blues By Kenyon Hopkins

Blanket by google.com

I took what I was given
and I took what I have stole,
but I took nobody with me,
not a soul, not a soul.
I took nobody with me,
not a soul.
I took some things for hunger,
and I took some things for cold,
but I took nobody with me,
not a soul, not a soul.
I took nobody with me,
not a soul.
I took all my anticipations with me,
all the dreams that I could hold,
but I took nobody with me,
Not a soul, not a soul.
I took nobody with me,
not a soul.
I took my heart and body,
in a dirty blanket roll,
but I took nobody with me,
not a soul, not a soul.
I took nobody with me,
not a soul.

High Scool Halloween Concert, BO the president, and Humorous Creatures!


Customs, strings, faces,
busy minds, noisy warm-ups,
October 29th.
Stairways, socks on feet,
Blonde hairs, plus those black and brown
spirits, there, souls young.
Conductor, teachers,
Weekly inspirations, mentors,
7pm, the party begins.

Fishing Thoughts


One two three four five,
I caught a gudgeon in net,
I let it go, yeah!
Gudgeon is a fish
that's tiny and nimble, it
swims to date its mate.
Fishing is not fun
if you kill fish king gudgeon,
Give them space to live.
Fish rhymes with wish,
Wishing rhymes with fishing,
I wish to see fish.

On Positive Thinking By Susan Ozella Hudson


Happy is the person who has in life
a goal to scan,
Happy is the person who takes a challenge,
mold it in his mind:
He revamps his logic and theory,
He mends his fences,
He cracks the new opportunity
at his feet.
Happy is the person who understands others,
Who lifts up the whole universe
in the palm of his hands:
He leans neither right hand nor left hand,
But rotates his energies
to emerge so that the world and he are one,
and Yes, he is happy
and thinking about it makes it divine.

Thursday Short Story Slam Week 29: Dramas and Freedom

Inside your body,
There's an ocean of fire.
The water is boiling,
tearful rebirth,
A take of the transforming pills.
The awareness from past failures,
Boom road home,
like mist above the ocean sailors.
The bruises are deepened by salty water,
Imperfect cruises,
Illustrated buoyancy of hope along the shore.
Different docks,
The same suffering,
Wait until 7am,
to share the same boat,
how surprising.
