MARIE ELENA’S MUSETTE:

SUPPLICATION

Kneeling
Before the throne
Dealing
 
Pleading
Just heal her please
Ceding
 
Trying
To want God’s will
Crying

WALT’S MUSETTE:

WORDS OF LOVE

Words flow,
a muse aflame.
Warm glow.

Words rhyme,
they sound the same
o’er time.

Words bloom
in poet hearts.
Love’s plume!

    Meg, for you, I pray… Walt, Beautiful!!

  2. 😦 Heartbreaking, Marie! I’m so sorry…

  3. Praying For Him

    Watching
    Feeling helpless
    Praying

    Hoping
    For his comfort
    Praying

    Crying
    Long in the night
    Praying

  4. HONEST LOVE

    Take this.
    It’s real, not some
    fake bliss

    to fool
    the wary, no
    cruel

    intent
    to say what’s not
    meant.

  5. Marie, your poem is touching, true, and beautiful. Walt, I love that second verse especially. I have a question about the form. In the second verse, are all the lines four syllables or only the second one? Whichever, it’s a great form.

    Morning

    Day breaks
    Words stir
    She wakes

    Coffee steam dreams
    Bird song takes wing
    Morning hope streams

    Each day
    Visions
    Replay

  6. Black Widow

    Too much
    his love for me
    a crutch

    I lean
    sapping his strength
    obscene

    all gone
    a withered husk
    move on

  7. Blustery

    Wind blows
    Through the houses
    Cold toes

    Fingers
    Cold from typing
    Lingers

    Over
    Hot chocolate –
    Over

  8. Ahead

    Bird sings
    the day awaits
    quick wings

    Earth spins
    my feet pad on
    life wins

    Sap sinks
    beneath dry bark
    star winks

  9. It’s Winds-day!

    Pooh knows
    To think, think, think
    And goes

    To owl
    While the wind still
    Does howl

    Sonny –
    What about lunch?
    Honey!

  10. New Day

    Morning
    I cast aside
    Mourning

    New day
    Starting over
    Gold rays

    Trusting
    God my Father
    Loving

    If I Were A Ghost

    If I
    were Casper would
    that I…

    …sailed thru…
    your little world…
    Sit you

    down and
    comfort you with
    warm hands.

    (for D… gorgeous Shepherd pup with his lovely, floppy ears <3)

  12. Walt and Marie, I like the extra rhyme in both of yours–makes them flow even more smoothly, I think.

  13. Run, Rabbit

    Quick, hop
    Safe to shelter—
    Don’t stop.

    Leave no
    Rabbit-shadow
    On snow.

    Hawks fly,
    Hungry in the
    Cold sky.

  14. “Stasis” (Greek for Standstill)

    Freewill;
    a bottleneck_
    stock-still.

    Action;
    rhetorical_
    ration.

    Chosen;
    moments in time_
    frozen.

  15. I can’t believe mine will be first. I’m always a slow poke. Well, if there are some errors still there, it should encourage others that not perfect is normal. 🙂

    I’ll return later to do comments. This is my effort for today.

    Hero for the Taking

    Once there,
    He claimed a soul
    Laid bare.

    Made wise
    He saw burdens,
    Man’s lies.

    He gave
    Gentle surcease,
    To save.

  19. Sensory Overload

    Oh! Wow!
    Contemplating
    somehow

    beauty
    of line or sound,
    floaty

    dancing,
    perfect scent, en-
    trancing

  20. claudsy on said:

    Lovely and light. Good one, Viv.

  21. Poet

    Writer
    Thinker
    Fighter

    Making sounds sing
    Painting with words
    Feelings take wing

    Life scrunch
    Succinct
    Pack punch

  22. Anchor

    Big jolt,
    love from the start,
    wrote notes.

    Key note
    strong arms, good heart
    I float.

    Devoted –
    now anchor , a part,
    over coat.

  23. Daring to Hope

    Staring
    Into those eyes
    Daring

    Daring
    To hope that you’re
    Caring

    Caring
    In the same way
    Staring

    RIPPLING

    Carry
    thoughts of past to
    bury

    at Bay
    like pebbles tossed
    away

    Peace found
    in rippling waves
    soft sound

  25. Pregnancy

    within
    stretched skin small life
    begins

    heart beats,
    fluttering hands
    and feet

    she smiles
    despite stretch marks
    for miles

  26. Night Watch

    Beside your bed
    Throughout the night
    Holding your head

    Calming your fears
    In deepest darkness
    Drying your tears

    Stroking your hand
    Within death’s dimness
    Watching you go from land

  27. Giving

    Kissing
    you now without
    missing

    Giving
    the best way of
    living

    With love
    for you that comes
    from above

    By Michael Grove

  28. I’m back, a little late!

    Two Timer

    Oh you
    two timin’ cheat,
    I’m blue.

    Spin yarns
    from shredded wool,
    no qualms.

    Surprise!
    Saw your new squeeze
    out with new guy.
