Canvey Island 1964

the Thames estuary;
a flock of caravans
and a low sun
that narrows my eyes,

a seawind strong,
that pulls my kite
over the water.

Best School Play Ever

I cannot afford to miss
A school play such as this.
My son plays a big tall tree.
My daughter plays a bumble bee.
At the end a pig and a hippo kiss.

me. My parents know who I am. I would be lost with out my 
parents, I love my parents.

Short Parents poem by Archontoula Alexandropoulou| Details | |

A place in between

The eagle broods upon the nest
and gets upset and moody

"Would that I were a youngling still
like mine upon their cradle

no strings attached
no feeding times

and I a free scavenger..."


by Pyrgia

{inspired by quote #5}

Short Parents poem by May Fenn| Details | |

Our Kid

A kid is not a human child
But offspring of a goat
So why do you then call him so
And thus your son demote.
Kids are animals wild and free
That butt and kick and bite,
On second thoughts – I’ve met your son,
Perhaps in fact you’re right.

Short Parents poem by Joshua Lacey| Details | |

Time of the Teen

It's the era of the teen
Nosy parents are just plain mean!

Don't get what I want to do
Grounded? It's just like a zoo!

But although parents can be tough
Without them life is a bit rough!

When all the rearing has been done
A true adventure has begun!

Short Parents poem by Trenton Moore| Details | |

What Is Wisdom Anyway

Ever since I've stood on Earth
I have won a sharded crown of glass.
It is my dismay from my parent's despair
That along with it came my kingdom of Hell.

Sone how I stay with fiery veins,
Blood boiling with my helm of frailty.
I have learned nothing but disillusions.

Short Parents poem by Miche Ulman| Details | |

Family Matters

In the attic, above wooden floor,
through the hallway of psychotic, locks upon my door,
near the broken window and glass of the sore,
hiding in the shadows,
bloodstains on the wall.

 Number nine,
house at the end of the street,
where lights are low,
where silent never sleep.

Short Parents poem by Barbara Briggs| Details | |

Where Did All The Marbles Go

When I was younger my father
Used to yell at the evening news
I thought it very funny and wondered
Just how many marbles did he lose
Well now it is not so funny
The apple didn’t fall far from the tree
The one who is doing the yelling now
Is the marble-less wonder, me

Short Parents poem by Barbara Costilow| Details | |

Friends

At the age of about 25 I learned what is a real family
Families are made up of people who love you
They don't have to be related to you
They are the ones you can call at 3 in the morning
Say you need money and they reply
How much and where can I meet you
And they show up

Short Parents poem by Louis Borgo| Details | |

Utilitarianism A Man

A man has ego,
A man has pride,
A man has lied,
A man has tied,
A man has daunt,
A man has courage,
A man has conscience,
A man has hearted,
But honestly does a man believe he has no flaws,
How can a Son forgive a Father,
I say my young brothers just tried,
A man is the better man.

Short Parents poem by Dane Ann Smith-Johnsen| Details | |

Christmas

moms and dads
with child-like grins
acting like Santa Clause
giving

children
cannot sleep
the night before
gift-surprises arrive

RELATIONSHIP

parents and siblings occurs by nature.
that is a naturally made relationship.
friendship is a relationship that accompanies us.
life partner is the only relation which,
we selects and makes it a ship.
so be careful in selecting a life partner.
or else the life ship will drown in a sea of sorrow.
