Maybe I’ll try a 1-sentence…

Finding your own tendencies, characteristics, and interests,
you’ve discovered your personality that you can be out being quiet and introspective and still be a standout.

On Fire

please brighten up my mind
with simple thoughts of grace
dream up a smile then shine
ahead of the blue days

i love the rare special feeling
that comforts my writing desire
when the train- of- words is passing
the poet in me is on fire

whirling words that spring in kind
freeing some unbinding ties
stories weaved by heart and mind
befit saints, sinners, those in disguise

refitting bad times to glory
by printing factual words in mind
i won’t end it in a hurry
leaving real opinions unsigned

i thought of the things i did
just hours that winked at me
leaving a memory in my bucket
i believe that it is free
sweet smiles that you’ve left
i considered them sacred
i’ve tried to recapture
the message you’ve delivered
if you mean that was love
that was intended for me
i’m glad to get hold of
your heart that’s not empty
in fascination’s world tonight
wandering in the space of time
let it be you that i’ll meet
in the deep of dark sublime

The pink lily

in the shallow lake you thrive
with colorful and delicate petals
marvelously you rise up to inspire
in sparkling hues of pink ruby and sapphire

for poets you’re a seductive metaphor
in the thick of mud surviving in dreams
beautiful as you are derived
from the ancient Greek myths of nymphs

legions of races love your glow
an attraction in the water kingdom
a mythical nymph in the creek or pond
you’re a spirit living the life beyond…

i’d like to follow the rainbow
and play with the colors that arch
from the sea extending to the mountains
losing luster as i await and watch

how happy i am when it shows
it cools me at noon ’till it’s gone
at times the colors brighten like a rose
then lightens and fades like the setting sun

in the lives of men if compared
born and die in God’s perfect will
their time to be saints and sinners if dared
laughter, cheers, or bad luck can be downhill

rainbow, if the sky is your place
teach me how to hang high up there
bravely awaits the time to leave no trace
to appear and bring joy to all somewhere

silent as the clouds above
frosty than the winter snow
saintly when they speak of love
words lovely as the rainbow

reserve when madness rings in
smile is the armor that appears
defeat the temper that comes in
sometimes it burns up all in tears

annoyances come differently
in others they don’t mind
felt deep acting like a bully
reactions vary, individually defined

when fight becomes your only response
it will undermine relationships
occasional outburst can be given a chance
be the captain, tighten your own grip

Later that night…

alluring presence pried my vision’s range
hooked in her image a little bit grand
from where i stood, i felt a little strange
looked like the lady in Frankenstein’s land

later that night she walked into my dream
in her hand she held a lighted candle
called my name… her fangs showed, i had to scream
in fear, i hurriedly took my rifle

that brief mental picture awakened me
vampires take their flights into worried minds
good sweet sleep requires the mind worry – free
so we can dream away nightmares of all kinds

Calendar

i’m staring at you
with inquisitive eyes
stupefied i must say
it’s been a while
that you’ve been hanging
on that flat solid blind wall

writings on some of the numbered days
marked to be brought to mind
my happy smiles are one of a kind
ungodly images nothing can compare
go raining on my dreadful nightmares

notes for the somber bleak moments
checks for the cheerful lively commitments
you never smile or showed any fear
just hanging on there
a new calendar year after year
