Solace is Sweet
angst, courage, emotions, encouraging, endurance, hope, words,
I find solace in solitude
Cuz I'm misunderstood
I don't mind your voice
It leaves me to rejoice
Quilt me your positivity
You built within me hope
I felt your friendship happily
When these emotions are hard to cope
Remorse was on my mind from the start
crazy, humorous, nonsense,
My world today's turned upside down
I feel just like a circus clown
I've gone and dropped several cups
All I've got left is two chipped mugs.
To cap it all, would you believe
I had a fall and bruised both knees
My hubby...Read More
Hide and Peek
Let’s play hide and go peek said the horse.
It was a great suggestion I agreed of course.
Because I did not know that he had said peek.
In my mind I had heard hide and go seek.
He threw himself down into the...Read More
Elephant dumplings in my soup.
They are tasty and delicious.
Warm and fleshy to boot!
Come on, don’t crowd.
Elephant dumplings get them here and now!
They are frankly a big fat wow!
Not easy to beat.
Believe me, it’s a rare treat!
A Soup Bowl Full of Christmas
christmas, family, silly,
Twas the night before Christmas, when all thru the Soup bowl,
Not a poet was writing, not even the musing mole.
All their pens were hung by the chimney with bubble gum,
Hoping Winged Warrior would loose and let them win some.
The poetesses...Read More

PACHY ,PACHY PACHYDERM
JOHN M. ARRIBAS
I own a little ranchette, ftve acres, more or less
With a two storey colonial, gorgeously dressed
With a wrap around balcony on the second floor
With a large rose garden. Who could ask for more?
Green Bahamian shutters,...Read More
A Sense of Being
feelings, life, senses,
You smell the fishy atmosphere
As a distant pounding draws you near.
You lick the salt from your hand.
Your feet find coolness in the sand.
A delicious aroma hangs in the air.
The buzzing of bees tells you beware.
The sweetness of fruit picked...Read More
Intuitive Guide To Ignorance
abuse, betrayal, character, conflict, humorous, hurt, rights,
Here's my Invisible Rules Book.
I make them up as I go along.
Don't dare make me accountable,
I won't apologize as I'm never wrong.
I don't care if your angry.
I really don't care what you think.
It's my Intuitive Guide to Ignorance.
It's invisible, it's...Read More
A glance or two
When we exchange quick looks, a glance or two
will tell us everything we need to know
A silent code created just for you ---
and me, through which two lovers graceful grow
Cry Help They Hear Attention
I cried for help
They called it attention
Worsening how I felt
hurting a horrid situation only had myself
I struggle to describe my pain
So they label me a liar
I felt but could not explain
as depression killed desire
I would be the first...Read More
angst, anxiety, death, death of a friend,
"Amid the jagged shadows of mossy leafless boughs; "
In Case You Didnt Know
( IN CASE YOU DIDNT KNOW )
I dont know if I ever told you, your the air that I breath
It doesn`t take long to miss you, the moment that you leave
You make my world complete, the centerpiece in the show
( RESOLUTIONS )
A new year to erase the bad times, to start a new slate
To make up all the should of dones, believe that theres fate
Give up any addictions, show love where its needed
Give to those that need it, and...Read More
The Night Before
T 'was the night before Christmas and all through the house
You can hear the wife calling me a louse
The stocking are hung on the mantle with care
In hopes that presents might soon be there
Mama in her night clothes nestled in...Read More

america, earth, environment, how i feel, pollution,
In Nigeria, in Lagos, in lands far away
The garbage pile’s growing more and more each new day.
The US is known for throwing trash in the road
The UK comes close with a big garbage...Read More
Waiting for Mum
child, emotions, feelings, heartbroken, mother, political, work,
Peering through the bedroom window
Yellow street lights and falling snow
Elena asked Fred, the garden gnome
“When mummy would come home?”
The gnome smiled as if he knew
But stared quietly at the other two
His colourful brothers Jim and john
Who looked busy guarding...Read More
10th grade, 4th grade,
What a lovely chat we had
The five of us together
We talked about this and that
Without mention of the weather
There were Fay and Chris, Elaine and Harold
And of course, there's me
Fay and I were already friends
We'd never met the other three
Nature is awesome
It gives all hearts a lift
An ever-changing picture
An enduring perfect gift
For all of us to drink in every day
Security in the knowledge
This gift is here to stay
If one is feeling weary
And everything looks drear
Walk into a garden, forest...Read More
When an error has been made
Of gigantic measure
And you have to apologize
Knowing this gives you no pleasure
You thought you were right
Of this you never doubt
People have lost faith in you
Now they have found you out
The error you made involved a...Read More
Once again, I didn't read the rules
Form: I do not know?
I tried to write a poem in the form known as free verse
It didn’t turn out very well in fact it turned out worse
I couldn’t seem to get it down, the rhythm so off beat
It mattered not how hard I...Read More
you can quickly smell
that Coco Chanel
is the central passion
of Nana’s fashion
soon looking you tell
that pearls as well
on ears and neck
are smartly decked
arthritis and all
she stands tall
strutting down the lane
with designer cane

dream, imagination, peace, places,
There is a corner of this land
Where all trains run on time
And cricket's played
On village greens
Just as the church bells chime.
There is a corner of this land
Where shops have open doors
And soldiers stand
In neat straight lines
In a world that...Read More
Frail and Fragile Bars
Morning brings a winsome chance
Perhaps my mind is allowed to dance
Allowed to feel my emotions free
To laugh, to love, to feel and be
What I was before the curtain
That cancer drew and made uncertain
A future beyond near gone years
Days filled with...Read More
It doesn't feel like Disney World
Though it has lots of rides
And food and fun and shops galore
It naturally provides.
Since 1843, it's been
A Copenhagen treat,
A perfect place downtown
For friends and family to meet.
You stroll right up and pay the fee
