Whiteness

Winter frost on willow trees  
     Weeping tears of snow.  
Halos 'round the opal moon,
     Hopeful, humble glow.           
Ivory keys collecting dust, 
     Itching to be played.   
Tresses bleached by age and time,
     Thinning as they fade. 
Empty pages bound in cloth,
     Ernest for a word.
Naked rows of birches -
     Noble and absurd. 
Endless skies of cotton clouds 
     Eager to unfurl.
Strings of sparkling diamonds, 
     Strands of subtle pearls.
Shovel, shiver - still, it falls:
     Snow subdues the world.

A TRIBUTE TO DARREN WATSON

Dearest Darren I miss you oh so much
All I want is for you to be returned to good health
Romantic writes you penned so well
Ridiculous sense of humour we share
Emails flew between us faster than Concorde
No one could make me laugh the way you do

Wish I knew how you are doing my friend
All my love and prayers are sent to you
There will never be another to take your place
So much fun being your poetry partner
Oh what a blast we had writing as Jadazzle United
Never a day passes when I don’t think of you

NAMESAKE

(Dedication: For Dave Wood)


Do follow feel, do simple write;
Align your flow, align your say;
Voice lines that heal, voice verse that cite;
Echo fond glow, echo fond stay.

Watch feelings surge, watch intent spur;
Opt for plain smile, opt for clear poise;
Options emerge, options recur;
Deed springs fine style, deed hurls fond voice.

Passion greets choice, passion meets peer;
Offer to cast, offer to soar;
Endow your voice, endow your cheer;
Trust first and last, trust tact and oar.

tribute five

"Please Allow Me to Speak for Him"
by:  Eric L. Boddie

Strength is boundless within his words
In the hearts of many, he should be heard
Lent me his pen one time in the past
Even his dark stuff reveals the awesome skill he has
Nothing can destroy a heart that's really pure
The Answer Is Christ, The Only Known Cure

Once He Arrives, everything makes sense
Nothing but his pen can get that intense
Each selection I have read makes me more appreciate what his pen invents

Lighting A Candle - Word Acrostic

 


LIGHTING a candle for those who have died 
A most thoughtful and kindly request done, since lighting a 
CANDLE is the least, we can  do, 
FOR those who have sacrificed their life and all, so 
THOSE of us can live in a better place.Let's remember those 
WHO have died in all the wars, who, 
HAVE fought so bravely in the name of peace & freedom and 
DIED.Let's never forget it and so let's pray for World peace.

Collaborator Callus

Passion pulses in his lines
Awe and wonder in his rhymes
Undressed is each wanton dream
Love's triumph: the greatest theme!

Cherub's voice he brings to chime
All his words etched in sublime!
Light and luscious- what a treat!
Lilting cadence: rhythmic, sweet
Ultimate the revelry
Since Paul writes for you and me

Appassionata (Paul's name for me)

Paul writes in many different genres, but my favorite of his writes are his passionate ones. Check out his awesome win in FJ's Nighttime Musings contest. Simply elegant....sensually sweet. I have collaborated five times with Paul. He'll send me a few lines that he knows I can build on and off we go. :) Thank you, Paul, for sending me some lines when my muse has deserted me. I appreciate your friendship. Can't wait to see you in Malta in a few months. Blessings...

Poet Destroyer A

Poetess she is, whose magic is cast with great ease
Opulent in words, charming to the utmost degrees, 
Engraving hisses, silhouettes, images of natures surreal
Trespassing horizons never stretched out to an ideal 

Destroyer as known for, although she's here to compose
Enchating poems and songs her beautiful soul bestows
Such a fusion encourages poets to hold their inks and quills
To write 'bout nymphs in seas or orchards filled with daffodils 
Rampantly defeated by her as what often happens, except
Of all practiced skilled writers she's definitely the most adept
Yielded in a words-battle having a single acknowledged end
Efficacious "She" is by far a star who can simply transcend,
Reproductions of literary stylistic forms in her magnificent way

A lady I know as Linda with a pseudonym Poet Destroyer A!

VIDYA-R

Vacations, in her knowledge, don't exist

India would progress with people like her,

Dear or not, she cares for all -

Yearning to do good for another

A wonderful person, selfless and wise
.
Really, for praise, words would not suffice.

(acrostic)


G-lenn Miller, his music is so wonderfully sublime,  enchanting.
L-istening to his "Moonlight Serenade" makes me think of love so tender.
E-ndless joy, in my heart,his music always brings to me. His given 
N-ame was,Alton Glenn Miller.He was born in Clarinda, Iowa, U.S.
N-otoriously,performed the trombone.His Glenn Miller Orchestra is divine

M-usician arranger,composer,and great band leader in the swing era.
I-n The Mood",is onother one of my favorite music pieces of his to this day.
L-ittle Brown Jug" "American Patrol" "Tuxedo Junction" and so many more, his 
L-egacy is filled of of so much dancing and romance under a moonlit and stars.
E-ntertaining the troops was something very close to his heart.Glenn Miller,

Author's notes:

My humble poem tribute to one of the greatest and most
unique bandleaders of the big band era,Glenn Miller.
One of my very favorite band leader I personally 
love and enjoy hearing the most.I listen to his music 
for many years now.And I believe that theres no one like him,
his music can never be duplicated by anyone.
His beautiful music just transcends time and space,forever.




(Born March 1, 1904- Missing December 15,1944)
Years active 1923-1944
In 2003 Miller, received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
His plane dissapeared while flying over the English Channel.
His remains and that of his crew has never been found.
Miller's status is missing in action up to this date.


Long live the King of Swing!

"The Welcomer"
by:  Eric L. Boddie

Something about her relieves me of my breath
Keenly, she supports all who reach her path
Allusions of perfection seem to provide her wealth
The complex simplicity of her being can only be described by math
All her Beauty is clearly visible, she has no need for stealth

A Tribute to Poetry Soup

A tribute to poetry soup

That's been coming for a while
Regardless of your age or group 
It always makes you smile
Beginners are made to feel at home
Understanding, they are poets too
Teaching or learning they're never alone
Even though they might be new

Taking time to hold their hand
Offering some great advice

Patiently, til they understand
Openly, and always nice
Even if you're a master poet
Teaching, may be your gift
Reaching those, who just don't know it
You can set their minds adrift

So thanks to all that help us write
Or who's keeping us in the loop
Until my fingers, no longer type
Praises, to all at the soup

Tribute To Mother On Mothers' Day 2015

E-ven though she's been gone lo these many years,
D-id I tell her I loved her enough as I fight back the tears.
I-often think I'm the most blessed of men upon this earth,
T-hat God in His wisdom chose her to give me birth!
H-ow I cherish the many happy memories we did share,
M-ost of all her beautiful smile and crown of silvery hair!
A-nd I know that God placed upon her head a star-studded crown.
E-xemplary was she as she served her family with great renown!

Fundamental five virtues of wisdom, truth, goodness, justice and love 

In tune with five senses of taste, smell, touch, hearing and sight

Vibrations of the five sided pyramids draw power, and emit light

Elements of water, fire, wood, metal and earth each share their worth

Simply the luckiest day of the month for one’s birth!

For every woman, man, and child have the 
Right to
Equality and
Equity in this

Our lives, as liberated, co-depends on these truths.
Mighty we are as a country.
Strong in protecting our home front.

Memorial Day Tribute

Memorial Day Tribute

Memories of the Men and Women, who served,
Emotional tributes so well deserved.
Moments of solitude with thoughts preserved,
Outpours of love so vividly observed.
Revolutions of dangers you so bravely swerved,
Inhibitions and fears suppressed and reserved.
Always ready to protect, even the undeserved,
Loyal to a fault, with energy conserved.

Dedication and valor are the pins you ware,
Attributes of service, loyalty beyond compare.
Your selfless acts of duty, always remembered through prayer!

Frozen herds torn from creation’s page
Rocking tribal fears—who’s got the reins?
Innocents are hurt while tempers rage
Call for voices high and voices strong

The Walking Dead-A Sonnet Acrostic Tribute

There is an emptiness. You see no face.
Humanity. . . Wherever can it be?
Enveloped by strange silence is each place.

Whole towns have been abandoned! Finally,
A figure is approaching - a small child.
Look! Her mouth with something red seems wet.
Keep moving. This girl’s face is not so mild.
Inside a vacant house you need to get!
Now suddenly, more human forms appear.
Get far from them! They have no heart or soul.

Dead eyes will haunt your dreams. You’ll live in fear.
Eternal sickness has consumed them whole.
As twilight falls outside your door, they creep.
Do say a prayer to God, your soul to keep.

Sonnet 7: Garbage bin poem

Good people will place me where I serve best
And charge me with a most noble duty
Regardless of the weather I won’t rest
Bearing the task of preserving beauty
And though some may sneer and say I’m smelly
Greater peace of mind breathes where I am seen
Everyone needs me to keep their home clean

But if I should not be found standing there
In the place I was left, alone and bare, 
Not many would notice or even care

Public places are cleaner when I’m there
Offices, beaches, streets, shops and kitchens
Everywhere people live I should be found
My hope is that people want me around.

Veterans

Venerable warriors who served with pride,
Even to the point of death,
They are the heroes we should recognize,
Extolling their service, our debt.

Afford them the honor they are due.
Never forget the price that they paid,
Securing peace and freedom for you.

Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin-The Acrostic Style

~Sir Charles(Charlie)Spencer Chaplin~
(Acrostic)


C-harlie Chaplin as he was better known made
H-is name famous in the early 20's in the silent screen.His
A-cting career took off from then on, right from 1895 to 1976.
R-espectively he was not just a comic actor but during his
L-ong lifetime career. Sir Charles (Charlie) Spencer Chaplin was
E-nglish, born in Walworth, London, England. Besides an actor, he was a
S-creenwriter, film director, producer, composer and mime. All during his long 

C-areer he was one of the most influencial figures in the silent film era.
H-e was a great gift of comedy all thru a worn- torn war world and after.
A-nd he acted and directed, he composed a lot of music for many films.His 
P-rivate life later on was filled of so much adulation and controversy so much that
L-ater on, this forced him to resettled back in Europe.The American Film
I-nstitute, ranked Chaplin as the 10th greatest male screen legend of all times.
N-ever before or after the Great Depression, had been a an actor quite like him.

~Author Notes:

My Acrostic poem is a humbled tribute, to one of the most remarkable
actor of all times, "Charlie Chaplin" also remembered
and known by his unforgettable character role of the
"Little Tramp" in the silent film era.I had really
enjoyed so much watching his very funny and most delightful
comedy films over the years.

USAIN BOLT

Unfettered lightning lash through the fury of the rain,
Sizzle mouths dry with shock of glory. 
Athlete that made our jubilee golden, mighty Usain
Inciting the petrified blend each new victory
Nested within love of hope and love of glory.

Bridge us through the overbrimming and the pride
Olympian, orbit history like a carpet before 
Love's lesson cannot be spelt again. Be strongly sure
Thunder will not break the pact between possibility and dream.
                                 ii

Usain Bolt, do you know what limit is in our flesh
Surfing on opponents wind strainless to the end
African panting away from the hard invisible mesh
Inflicting us with pain - memories with me contend
Naturally, for the Negro rises as human again.

Bold man of grace, runner with the panther's ease
Ovations rise from within and without the race
Laurels for the worth that we may not grovel on our knees
Triumph has many friends where love secures its place.
                                    iii

Understanding only a form of speed tells nothing still
Simpler in the hearts denied a brighter beacon burns
A worth within the breadth and scope of human will
Insistent above the error of history, respect now earns
Nation and Negro a voice to speak in all the cause of man.

Bridge me then delight into the glory of your jubilee
Omit me not to light a princely tribute for your deeds
Lovelier than the loveliest of gazelle in raptured glee
Thundering in hostile skies where only lightning succeeds.

                                     iv
