Midnight Pearls

.                 



                 Shine, midnight pearls!
                 The smoke curls up 
                 in whirls of doom.

                 On the wet sand 
                 my own hand draws 
                 unplanned pierced hearts.

                 Deep blue-black sky
                 I play by rules
                 and sigh despair

                 to lay aside 
                 starry-eyed dreams
                 that hide a sin.

                 Shine, distant stars!
                 through guitars notes,
                 through scars of time.

                  For her first kiss
                  an abyss drains
                  all bliss from me

                  and far away
                  shadows play down
                  their spray of doubts.

                  Opaque pearls, shine!
                  On this fine night, 
                  define my north.

Catfished

His hair online
Looked divine, so
To dine, she went.

She’d been misled
And with dread, saw
His head was bald.

What a bad dish.
Her fond wish was
Catfish instead!


*catfished (a fairly new term for those who don't know of it)
Being deceived over facebook as the deceiver professed their romantic feelings to his/her victim, but isn't who they say they are.

Hear My Sweet Dreams

Hear My Sweet Dreams


Hold your dreams tight!
In your sight then
Each night sleep there.

Dream on with glee!
You hold me thus
Lets be with care.

Under pale blue moon
Love blooms soon show
in rooms quite fair.

Velvet touch spreads!
On soft beds slept
Love weds our pair.

I think your kiss
Each I miss now
A remised share.

Hear my sweet dreams
We ride streams down
Fire steams our pair!

Robert J. Lindley, 3-07-2016 


Not For Contest. 
Added end rhyme as a bonus.....third verse each stanza..
there, care, fair, pair, share, pair .
 
POETRY FORM- Than-Bauk, 4 syllables per verse, 3 verses per poem.
I wrote mine as a double--never like to be restrained or told to follow limiting rules.
Thus this one is ineligible for the contest I wrote it for.
No disrespect but too bad the sponsor decided they did not want to read longer poems. -Tyr

Ice Cream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream

goodbye, sweet day

Magenta sky
     shines at twilight
as I ponder
how the sun glows
      though night flows in!

Dusk grows colder. . . 

A lone gull’s cry
has me sighing
       goodbye, sweet day.

Hoss Race

Long shot prospect
named “Reject Hoss”
bedecked with sweat.

He fell to last
‘till he passed gas
so fast, he flew!

He ran with ease.
At Jockey’s  prod,
he squeezed in front!

Forty to one,
odds he won was
pure fun for Hoss.

OH DEAR - DAD'S BEER

Beer dad did pour;
placed on floor but
dad sure full glass

Sis gulped dad’s beer,
Felt so queer… sick
Oh dear, dad’s sad!

Drank dad’s home brew
Age just two, poor
Dad knew - too late!

A true poem about my sister and dad who were visiting his friend Alexis. Dad poured a glass of home brew and put it on the floor -  next thing he discovered was my sister had picked it up and drank it all!  She was pretty sick and mum was very cross!

The Project

The Project


Son's science quest,
insect nest finds;
school's best project.

Saves in his room.
Wakes to doom when
with gloom, he cries.

Hundreds now crawl.
Every wall sports
hatched small mantes.

My Human Folly

We will all die
So we cry loud
And try for thought.

Wrong lane, wrong way.
Death delay, pray.
Cars stray and honk.

Oh, please, cars – clear.
Turns appear soon,
I steer, we cheer.

Beating simultaneously - an intense magnetism
