1.only, with posterity's eyes
can perfection, be, identified

2.picking the petals off our to be’s, to have’s, to do’s
and almost, at times, to wake us or wake us not.

3.Bottled inside me is beauty and charm
Daisies are dancing and doing no harm

4. Maybe a single petal as it flutters
Or a country windows, complete with shutters 


5.Like dew-bespangled flowers alone I weep
The spray turns to rain, colours never keep

6. But moon you're too still, too simply bitten,
While I fight for each rhyme left unwritten.

7. until they rise from the surface
into winters late morning mist.

8. You didn't listen to what she had to say
Now you understand why she went away

9. I had eight POETS honor me with my POEM "BrokenHeart"
But clumsy me, hit the wrong key and sent it of the chart

10. Only you, it is yours, my broken heart,
If you wish a Valentine take the dart

11. Yes, rock me a little, I sure won't refuse
And hum me a tune while I take a quick snooze...

12. Seven days how long the days do seem
Was it all in a seven day dream?

13. This Spirit pill offers abundant life
Swallow it to live life free of strife

14. If my words have brought you pain
Made your heart’s tears fall like rain

15. You’ll need to find the fount of youth, my friend.
Life’s pill - plus YOUTH - means health without an end!

16. There in the midst of all we are set free,
To want, to love, to strive, or just to be.

17. Welcome to my private sanctuary
Find solace in nature's pageantry.

18. My heartbeat needs its fix and drug,
Your sweet charming smiles and hug

19. My bright coloured yo-yo, walking the dog
Catching crawdads with bacon under a log

20. I aimed and hit the thief right in his ass
Heard something that fell to the ground with a bang


21. Your embrace enfolded my quivering frame
I gladly accepted the offer to take your name

22. As doubt presented its yellow rose to me,
I dreamed of longevity in outer spectrums;

23. lost his ear one stormy night
the dog jumped in to bed in fright,

24. I feel left behind in the race
By not keeping up with the pace

    congrats to PD. If anyone should know our style, it's PD. Wish I'd had time for this. I can only just look quickly and tell you, it looks like you put a lot of work into this, Suz and it's a great idea!

    Thank you for playing Linda. And thanks for the complement re my contribution. You had answered them all spot on! Your guesses were also spot on. I think you are right: we do give a lot of ourselves away via our poetry. Love, Su
