Premium Member Than Bauk Poetry

need end this verse

Burning candle
tells a tale of
pure selfless life

Be such a flame
let your aim be
to tame darkness.

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!

From Dovecote Hill,
my thoughts spill round 
the mill-town’s ways

My childhood lies
there, dream-size, in
my eyes’ embrace,

Oh, if only
life could be so
tiny... always

Premium Member Scared Of Her Uniqueness

she was a mess
people were scared
of uniqueness

she did not care
lived by her heart
knew herself well

people jumped back
friends delighted
family annoyed

followed her rules
lived her own dreams
happy magnet

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

Out in the sun
ice cream runs down
someone’s sad face

Fun will begin
once again, when
the chin is clean,

A few more dimes
just in time, will
buy nine more cones!...

Premium Member 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

Who's in charge here?

Can't they hear us?

No ear, perhaps!

Goodbye, Sweet Day

Magenta sky
     shines at twilight
as I ponder
how the sun glows

Hissing heartshaped
Dragon draped route
Escaped ship slips

Camouflaged trap
Seaward map shown
Sails slap in breeze

Portal to sea
Songs of glee flow
From freedom's voice  

Inspired by Debbie's contest.....

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.

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!

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,...

Premium Member Dreams in the Dark, Will They Spark
my nightly muse
can't refuse sleep
I lose what's real

struggling to deal
how I feel. Things
concealed become

bright as the sun,
though it's fun, what's
undone ... is me

Written February 17th,...

Smoking is Injurious

"Smoking is bad,
Out of fad", says
my lad of eight

Don't smoke again
It does slain you
Gives pain to us

I do not bluff
Said,"Enough!" Took
a puff to think

Nine o’clock dark
Stage for shark swim
Deep arc stakeout

Sailors phishing
Not squaring news
Sparing no one

Once debutante 
Vessel vaunt sinks
For daunt of men

Dawns a new day
Silent gray-blue
Sea fray...

the babbling brook
so cold took breath
dropped book in shock

fish nibbling toes

I doze on bank
