  1. Oh, I don’t know about this one…

  2. Not perfectly to form, but like horseshoes, close, I think.

    peeping
    leaping
    weeping
    sleeping
    in my bed, weeping, leaping, nightmare
    under cover, peeping, sleeping, prayer

    Warmly sharing greeting, treating there.

    COMING DOWN

    Leaper.
    Creeper.
    Deeper.
    Steeper.
    Norton Nuthatch, leaper creeper he,
    descends from a deeper, steeper tree.

    love crush
    cheek blush
    word hush
    bumโ€™s rush
    all in a flash: love crush, cheek blush drained.
    Love came and went: word hush, bumโ€™s rush, pain.

    POETRY

    A crime:
    All rhymes
    Sublime
    In time
    Are forgotten. A crime: all rhymes tossed
    From creation. Sublime? in time, lost.

    Silver Lining of an Epiphany

    Twilight,
    midnight,
    moonlight,
    insightโ€ฆ
    Daylight fading โ€“ twilightโ€ฆmidnight now;
    sea of white glows, moonlight โ€“ insight grows.

  15. This one is strange, I’ll grant, but it’s what came to me.

    Guru,
    Review
    A clue
    Undo
    Use your reason, Guru; review how
    We see your life–a clue, undo now.

  16. Birthmark
    Hallmark
    Remark
    Skylark
    You see my brown birthmarkโ€”hallmark mine;
    Once seen, never remark, skylark lyne.

    • Interesting (& somewhat puzzling — to me), Claudsy…

      • Glad it puzzled. I’m still puzzled by it, too. I kept seeing a kid I went to high school with who had a huge birthmark that covered half his face. Sweet kid who didn’t live very long. I kept remembering how we students couldn’t see the mark, nor did most of our families, but that those from outside our town seemed to always remark on it. We always thought it was beyond rude and humiliating to do so.

        I suppose that’s what it was about in the end. It’s the only explanation I can come up with.

      • Pamela, part of the puzzlement in understanding this one may be in the word “lyne.” The word has several meanings according to use and etymology, but the Urban Dictionary defines it as Very handsome and strong person. also opinionated, and hard willed. Oddly enough, that’s how our friend Chad was. Odder still is that I would think of him at all.

        • Thanks for the explanation, Claudsy โ€“ I appreciate it! (Some folks donโ€™t like to have to โ€œexplainโ€ their poetry; and sometimes, poems are just โ€œbornโ€ of their own accord and we poets canโ€™t say exactly what they mean โ€“ can only feel them — and leave the interpretation to the reader.)

          When I tried looking up the word โ€˜lyneโ€™, the only explanation I could find was a game (โ€œDeceptively simple. Infinitely complex. LYNE is a minimalist puzzle game that will knot your brain as it calms your soul.โ€) โ€“ which added (and still adds!) a certain intrigue to the poem for me.

          I love the story behind this one! While they can sometimes be very cruel, children can also be incredibly accepting; I love that this poem was born of that quality. And isn’t it amazing how a person and/or experience from years ago can suddenly surface out of nowhere and weave its way into a poem? Thanks for sharing this one.

          • Using a word with so many disparate meanings can be tricky, it’s true. The Lyne is also a river in England. Go figure. I’m glad that my explanation helped. And you’re right about the meaning you found. It does add a bit of intrigue to the subject.

            The story behind the poem–If memory serves, our friend Chad lost his life during the summer following graduation in a car accident. He was such a sweetheart, loved by everyone who knew him.

            And you’re right again–there are events in our lives, sometimes very small ones and large ones, which resurface unexpectedly for no apparent reason to slap us in the face and call us back to things important to remember.

            I’m glad you liked this one. It has for me a haunting quality. For others, it simply adds a puzzle to their day. Maybe that’s its purpose. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Yes, this is intriguing.

    • William Preston on said:

      This is fascinating; for me, the fascination lies mainly in the skylark image, which acts like a spring.

      • Really? Hunh. I guess it’s the idea of skylark’s various meanings–at least for me. I suppose it would take on that meaning, too, considering the behavior of the bird. Good thought there, William.

    Children at play spinning, grinning,
    We all fall down, pinning, winning

    The Weaver

    Weaving
    Reeving
    Peeving
    Leaving
    The spider works weaving, reeving
    When web is shred, grieving, leaving

  18. Darlene Franklin on said:

    Oops, yup, grieving. I wanted a “nature” poem but couldn’t find the right rhymes. And the first was inspired by my son’s description of my grandchildren at play at the park. And thanks for the time and encouragement you are investing in all of us.

  19. Fun one Walt….but tricky. New to me. I’ll give it a try. You and Pamela did so well with examples.

  20. Market Transactions

    Dim, slight,
    thin, white.
    True, quite
    mean, right.
    Lies we sold were dim, slight, thin, white drool.
    Rumors bought were true, quite mean, right cruel.

    A chance

    perchance

    As music plays, a chance to dance grows
    and with the song, perchance, romance flows.

  26. Springโ€™s Whiplash

    Sneezing,
    freezing,
    wheezing,
    easing,
    Iโ€™ve been attacked, sneezing, freezing old,
    the lecherous wheezing, easing cold.

  27. Not sure I get this form…but an attempt…

    You’ve been a crab, grabbing, jabbing hard
    So I grab you, jab you, stab you with my shard

    Remorse?
    Outsource!
    Perforce
    a course:
    to cheat without remorse, outsource it;
    have someone buy, perforce, a corset.
