Flowers

Like drops of paint on a painter’s easel
Resting quietly, patiently among others
To gently decorate the canvas;

Like soft silk folds of a lady’s dress
Pooling out, freshly washed,
With a hint of sweet perfume;

Like a cluster of warm, new colors
Gathered in the glowing sunrise,
Bringing the fragrance of a brand new day;

Like velvety scraps of a doll maker’s cloth
Like the sweet soft blush on children’s cheeks 
Like the smile of sunshine welcoming spring

A poem for YOU

In this world of Uncertainties I’m the man that you can trust And in my words of sincerity That my love would never last. And if you could only feel, what i feel for you You can ask me “why?” so you can see the truth Like our love that tightens the rope, Like a light that would give us hope. As you watch the dark skies Let me grab the moon for you, And as I catch the bright stars That’s the way you can see me through As this planet turns as it always will And things go wrong and you don’t know what to feel Hold my hand for it will make us strong Like a wind, we will carry on The wind blow that sings a hymn for you For they know what does love means for the two Love is blind, and not deaf So how’s success if you’re not ready to bet? In this poem with full of rhymes, A full of love, Babe can you be mine? I don’t expect too much from you Why should I? If you complete my whole. “Till death do us part” that’s what they have said But why do struggles crash them ahead? Don’t ask me when my love will last, To count all of our quarrels, is that a must? Now and Forever is all that I promise No day dreaming and without reminiscence As the matter of time, as the time passes by Together we stand, together you and I
A poem for my Girlfriend for our anniversary :) pls comment and rate... you are free to judge and criticize my work :) God Bless

Love in my veins

Your love flows through my veins
like the Nile River flows through
the sands of Eygpt.
Love flows through my veins
like rivers that break off into endless streams
and water the gardens of the green stems
of torn covered rose bushes.

In my veins, you flow, as a sparrow
flies through the blue skies in beauty.
You are the blood that flows through my veins
and later settles deep in my heart
and embraces me with a hug of intimace.

Love flows through my veins
like endless notes played by the sweetest composer
along with his private orchestra playing a lovely melody.
Rivers, streams break off and flow into lakes and oceans,
Like my veins that lead to my heart,
you are always there flowing through my veins.
Your love flows through my veins.

My Micke boys

                To be called ..
            ~   Grandma is a Honor ~

        I have been blessed with 4  Grandchildren

       ~ one lays in Heaven " Kaleb "  He is God's Angel ~
   ~ His twin brother he will always watch over , and be in his soul~

     For he loved his Brother so much in the womb ,
       he chose Heaven which gave life to his twin
      ~ I feel his spirit when I see the other Grandson ~
 
              Time passed another gift to see
               we are " Mickes" and Loved 
            Our Dad held the title in Baseball 
                   ~  that's how we roll ~
           those children are Grandmas hero's 

       The Irish they love big and Family is everything 
        The brothers will protect the beautiful sister 
              ~ as many lads will be calling ~

        Every time my Grandson hits a home run
     There will be a Angel watching proudly in the stand 

       It will be as if the Angel lifted him when he runs 
           ~no one runs faster then my Grandson~
     either baseball or Art  ~ you shall find your gift given

                These children have been blessed~
                 ~  a beauty to hard to describe 
        If you think not ~~  Take a look at the Mom  
                     That girl can stop Traffic   
                    after raising three and still~ 

          "Inspired by the gift and loss of Grandchildren "

     May our precious " Kaleb " softly rest where Angels only Dwell

Star Wish

Have You Ever Wished upon a Star?
And Did Your Wish Come True?
I Think I've Wished for Many Things,
But this Is My Wish for You.

I'd like to See You Happy,
After All That You've Been Through,
And I'd like to See That Smile...
The One That Belongs to You.

You Came to Me Some Time Back,
With Emotional Confusion and Fear.
I Told You There Were Answers,
But You'd Find Them in the Mirror.

I Believe the Day Has Finally Come,
That the Dark Days You Had Are Ending...
For this I Wished upon a Star,
And I'm Glad Your Life Is Mending.

Now You're Standing on the Brink,
Of Your Happy ever after.
I Wish the Very Best for You
And Most of All..Lots of Joy and Laughter.

CAPTURED THOUGHTS

Captured thoughts,
A capturer on a Friday night,
Mind away from the body,
Lost in a dance the mind is,
Stationary is the body.
Feet taping to no sound,
Laughs to equip the mood,
Capturers we are,
Gathered to one thought.
The only time minds agree,
Through the week we disagree.
Friday night the mind is one.
A rhythm to the mind,
Friday is the tune.
Unity of the night,
Imagine if ‘Love’ was ‘Friday’.
How much couples will agree,
How groovy the mood will,
A Friday relationship every day,
Love so groovy…

A Plane and The Eagle

O'er tempest,soars the 
eagle with wings 
stretching towards the 
smiling sun.
        Gliding-nature's 
handiwork.
    Up the sky,a figure 
with outstretched wings 
battling the turbulent 
wind and frowning sun.
      Soaring like an eagle-
Never an eagle.
      Gliding like an eagle-
Never an eagle.
      Mistaken for an eagle 
in the sky-never an eagle.
      Utter's sound as the 
eagle-never an eagle.
    This man-made 
handiwork,dismember's 
under a stormy wind.
    For paid price-loss of 
lives.
    The works of mother-
nature can never be out-
dated or equalled.
    Frog-men under sea 
and frogs in the waters 
can bear witness.

As A Fire Phoenix

Like the fire phoenix,
We must let our flares shine,
We must let our fervency burst freely,
We must have courage to overcome adversities and difficulties,
We must burn anything that stands in our way,
We must be prepared for any advent,
We must learn to fly,
After we have been pinned down on the ground...

Like the fire phoenix,
We must be swift like flames started on gas,
We must swish to and fro in our timeline,
We must appeal to a light, even if it is faded,
So that the light ignites
Our bursting flames throughout darkness...

Like the fire phoenix,
We must awake our blazing hearts,
Spread our fire wings bashing around,
The tears will heal them and us,
We must try to melt our chains and strains,
We must stash our strengths when few remains,
We must burst our reins of ardent fiery blazes,
So that our blood boils in our veins as we rise again;
We must rise when we fall,
We must scenic in our arousal,
We must be reborn from ash and dust,
We must raise our flaming spires as a fire phoenix...

Struggles and success, Sufferings and happiness, Dreams and Goals building to life; Like colours of the rainbow making light.

Who are you


A tiny fish in vast ocean,
Desirous to swim at liberty,
Direction and depth beyond measure,
Delicate with shiny witty eyes is me,
My Upma to a fish stands real true.

I am a thunder in the sky that enlightens,
A fire in hearts that sets one ablaze,
A thought velocious that travels to infinity,
A strong emotion that never unwinds,
Upma is a simile to all and stands true.

A pent up anger that goes in tears,
An endurance of an intense torture,
A pang that rankles after the agony,
Entirely original though comparable,
My rights are absolutely infrangible,
A simile means Upma and that's me !!

The Color Missing

The Color Missing
Red, black, and blue are the colors of our work pens. Red is the color of the blood we spill on other people’s mistakes.  Blue is the color of the songs we sing on tax forms or pay stubs- every page has a secret melody. Black is the color of the streets we fear most. Black is the color of our signature of approval. Black is the color of our death.

‘But what about the Green pens?’ I ask. They say ‘the ink is too hard to see.’

Love You Like the Sea

I'll love you like the ocean
I'll love you like the sea

I'll caress you like the salty breeze
Does caress those white-capped crests
I'll embrace you as the breaking waves
Embrace the shore with zest

I'll kiss you like the rising sun
Does kiss the sea at dawn
I'll call you like the sea bird sang
With passion, again and again

I'll raise you like the morning mist
That joins the sea to sky
I'll move you like the pale, round moon
Does move the pounding tide

I'll push you like the summer storm
That brings the sea to life
And even as in you I drown
Never did breathless trepidation feel so right

I'll love you like the ocean
I'll love you like the sea

A Rose with no Thorn

A Rose with No Thorn

In the Garden, the bouquet of life
There bloomed a rose whose beauty caught my eye
Incomparable is this rose’s design
Unlike the others, she is not the prickling kind

I know they say that every rose has its thorn
But here blooms the exception, of the spirit she is born
One of a kind, the rarest in form
For she is a rose with no thorn

Oh what a fragrance, so lovely and fair
A scent of sincerity sweeps through the air
A pristine beauty from the realms up above
For she is the flower primeval of love

And as I bask in her blossoms of compassion
I find I am fashioned by love that’s everlasting
And in my heart she’ll always be adorned
For she is a rose with no thorn

Though weeds, thorns and thistles have tried to choke her
The rain has wet her; the sun has even scorched her
But she’ll not wither, neither will she wilt
For she is rooted in the love that God has tilled

Amidst great turmoil, never to be foiled
Arrayed in glory that could never ever toil
One of a kind, yes the rarest in form
For she is a rose with no thorn

'the sea'

Things That Sound The Same

Isn’t it funny,
Fried eggs without legs can be runny
And when being fried they sound like the rain?
And wouldn’t you think,
A gentle drummer would blink if he knew that these things sound the same? 
What sounds like a team of Horses 
Galloping like rhythmic cosmic forces
A Roaring ocean as it crashes onto a rocky shoal?
Or what about
A strong wind with clout in the ear of the man as he goes on his stroll?

'Like Frankenstein, I, too, am loathed to death'

Like Frankenstein, I, too, am loathed to death;
I walk this earth devoid of friend and hearth,--
devoid of joy from the time of my birth
and from the first draw of my infant's breath.
An outcast and a pariah among
the friended, I exist without the mirth
and glee of those born of happier worth,
esteem and prize,--O would that I belong!
Still, I am loved of my dear family
and most loved friends, my books, and by my God
and e'en by my most oft-read poetry.
These things I cherish, honor, and must laud
with gratitude and thanks religiously
and be content as worms in a blesséd sod.

Laughter

 Jokes and laughter,

 some ones patter.its

 all part of the banter.

 Crack a smile its been

 a while, have a laugh

 be all out daft. A sore

 side and tears, drawn

 from memories of ever

 lasting silly cheer.

 Laughter is the cure, its

 sure to turn that frown

 upside down.

Bridge Over Troubled Waters

If finding yourself means going it alone, You shouldn’t—a fact that is painfully plain. Need is a naturally human bemoan, A collaboration helps you remain, a Friend to those who also have needs to atone. I'm clearing a path, a push straight ahead, Sailing stress free in my life stem to stern. Right where I should be, clarity widespread, Behind me no wake or substantive churn. Like all things in life from which one must glean, A period of time flowing under Bridge where it is swept quite far out to sea, Over vastness like far distant thunder Troubled and troubles, mere seconds they flee Water healing life’s fires placed asunder. I promise you one fact I now cherish Will power alone is power itself, so Ease your mind with the faith you’ll not perish Your success assured, fear placed on the shelf Mind over matter, peace you’ll inherit. © David Wegman 2014 Submitted for Roy Jerden’s Poetry Contest: “Bridge Over Troubled Water - Word Acrostic”

We Fell In Fall

the leaves ripened yellow and blazed orange and  
deepened into red 
like a struck match, the flame growing then  
dying, they brittled  
and drifted like husks of birds and curled  
and crackled  
like woodsmoke underfoot  
carpeting the sidewalks and drifting  
in the gutters.  

we learned to regard each other with new eyes  
and new arms and new  
hands and mouths  

and i carried scarlet leaves home to you  
and crimson dark and copper leaves and gold  
because there were no more flowers to bring.

Stars


The stars seem hidden,

 yet I know they are

 out there. I have seen

 them on clear nights,

 bright wonderful twinkling

 starlight. It shows the

 vastness, the extraordinary

 feat of our Heavenly Father.

 It brings upon me a smile

 of delight.

To Make A Smile

 We're Here for Just Awhile
And the Greatest Thing I Know
Is to Make Someone Smile
Before I Have to Go

To Bring a Little Joy
To Someone Who Is down
Can Make Your Heart Feel Better
Because You Were Around

The Feeling That You Have
When Someone Tells You Thanks
Means So Much More to Me
Then All the Money in the Banks

To Say I've Helped Someone
Is More than Just an Honor
It's Ranked among the Best
And I'm Glad I Was the Donor

Night Owl

Night owl


Wake up all the night,
Asleep whole day bright,
Am I a night owl ?

Ward of seriously sick,
Moving my neck at three-sixty is a trick,
Am I a night owl ?

Disease in fluffy plumage,
Prey to hooked talons' curettage,
I am a night owl !

Aboard in the black hours,
Be dark sky or glitter of stars,
I am a night owl .

Inheriting the mystery and magic of night,
Taking a noiseless flight,
Blessed are the night owls !
