Home is..... Where your __ss is sat The coat hung in the rack Where you hook up your hat. The rude nude... When naked truth Looks you in the eye From truth you can't shy That's life's way of saying Your sanity I certify. When hunger becomes mean.... My toaster burnt to a char To me, looked like coal tar Microwave waved a finger Asking if I wanted dinner So I gassed my foot in the car Hunger gave me that much power. (This happened on the way to the diner) Labour room mayhem.... The gynaecologist swooned When Mary had a little lamb The doctor needed dopamine Seeing the four legged bloodline. Ba ba bopeep... When ba ba black sheep Hit a favourite note The flutist began to weep The sheep had gotten his goat That became an irritation in the throat. Mirror, mirror on the wall....... With my broken smile I looked in the mirror I saw myself clearer The mirror became dearer. When sheet happens...... When shit happens Puts me in a lot of jeopardy I turn chaos to poetry I make the breast of it When shit happens I don't let it throw me Off balance. Floored homeless.... My bed threw me out Burning the midnight oil I burned the House down I am floored. ## Burlesque.
Somewhere Between The silence And the pause I try to find the words I write a love letter to Cupid My Syllables All Wrong.
As poets we have learned not to hate Theories of race, religion we cannot relate. A poet cannot be dictated to We write what our hearts hold true. From across the globe, we come to share Joys, sorrows, burdens we bare We are here today, gone tomorrow Life is but a time that we borrow Sharing thoughts, experiences On a platform that gives new meaning Learning to listen, learning to give The tolerance of learning to forgive. One cannot change the world with poetry Writing a poem is a feat extraordinary I think the written word is a thing of beauty Where sensibilities find sanctuary The world of poets is a fine place Here poets orbit as stars in the Milky Space.
The jungle got watered for free 'Cus the elephant had the urge to pee It was like opening a floodgate You could put ships in the Strait When this elephant leaked a jacuzzi.
Grief worn Fear torn Smiles gone Forlorn Impugned Shunned Banned Fined Jailed Sermoned Scorned Caned Pawned Spurned Warned Wounded Pained Alone Abandoned In the Unknown.
Mathematics was spared When Einstein prepared E= mc squared In the light of the matter We felt energy scatter That's how physics declared. Entanglement of time, space A gravitational interlace Theory of everything The questions they bring The phenomena of cyberspace.
Luminous Gothic moon, shimmering Celtic stars, swirling skirts and candlelight. # Monoku
In aurora gold Luscious buds enfold Sage strewn Springtime aisles unfold Tranquil skies extoll Lutes tune Spills verdant threshold Kindled pastures roll Glades croon. # Lai
