RE: Poets' Corner
Lalida Laughing
Dark shadows lift
aching muscles ease
dust stirs and is caught by the light at
the sound of
Lalida laughing.

From Hong Kong heat
and airline sweat,
luggage lugged,
homeward hauled,
performance-weary,
Sales-chatter-deranged –
then she is there,
above the stair
wearing a shirt
only
a shirt
much too big for her
bouncing with excitement
puppy-like
kitten-like
laughing.

God claims the good stuff:
rainbow,
healthy baby,
medical miracle.
Add to that list,
Lalida laughing.
It’s enough to make you believe.

And when she is gone
as free-spirits go
the dark will fall
the years return
and memories only
soul-crushing
heart-tearing
memories
of
Lalida laughing.

RE: Poets' Corner
The Circus

Once I saw a circus,
I thought it dull.
Nothing forcefully memorable
except
the clowns.

Well,
not quite,
It was the look in my father’s eyes as
he
watched the clowns.

What I saw there,
I had never seen before,

yet oft longed to see;
A blinding sparkle of youth.

For a moment,
I read the memories of days
he vowed to leave his village
to join the circus,
to be
a clown.

For seconds only the dream
again filled his eyes

a dream quashed by a war
And responsibility of an eldest son for a dying father.
But
more than that,
I saw a childish hope
with a respect for trivialities that I never found.

violet


tell me
kitteh
what is the lie
they come to my window
and
they're twisting my mind

tell me
kitteh
what is the lie
they whisper in shadow
and
they feed me my lines

tell me tell me tell me
kitteh
why are they here
and
what do they want
packets of fear
and
spread it along
tell me
kitteh
it can't go on
it can't go on

tell me
kitteh
what is the lie
what is the truth
when
we compromise
tell me
kitteh
what is the lie
what is the will
spent
that money can't buy

tell me tell me tell me
kitteh
am I wasting my time

am I wasting my time

Ah yes, I've always felt there was something diabolical behind the motives of kittehs. Consider

RE: Poets' Corner
I've tried my hand at poetry a few times throughout the years. And there are a few poems that have stodd out from time to time in my life.

This one comes from my childhood.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
What you need,
Is a brand new shampoo.

All the more reason to post, so we can mock you. Laughat


Just kidding. If there is something you like and are proud of, who cares what the topic is about. I don't think Johnny REALLY thinks that kittehs are twisting his mind...then again, that might not be a good example. Undecided
