Word Poetry Day: English Language


One Hundred And Seventy One Thousand Four Hundred and Seventy Six,
English words to choose from in day to day life,
Most are obsolete, such as Groak and Brabble,
There are many that sounds pretentious and obnoxious,
But then there are our day to day words,
So have a humdinger of a day,
Go out and have a glass of soothing medicament,
And add to your lexicon,
To improve your colloquy.

 

World Poetry Day: International Language


Poetry is an internationally understood language,
Each country with it’s own variant,
Some sung, some spoken and some hidden.
***
Every person feels it differently,
And no two people hear the same,
We all experience it our own way.
***
Take this time to think about poetry,
That one poem that made you feel sad,
And that one poem that made you glad.
***
We use poetry to remember those passed,
And to immortalise things in the past,
Or we use it just as a way to have a laugh.
***
Celebrate the world of poetry today,
Read something new and share it,
And please have a Happy World Poetry Day.

Time Moves


Autumn leaves on Summer trees,
Honey bees on Autumn leaves,
Time moves on so we might see,
those honey bees on Autumn leaves,
and Autumn leaves on Summer trees,
When we wake tomorrow.

We Once Said I Love You


You once said I love you without force,
Without pain, without remorse,
What we had was special,
But the bitterness came,
First it was just arguing,
Behind locked doors, then in public.
***
I once said I love you without wincing,
Without a sigh, without rolling my eyes,
What we had felt right,
But the cruelty came,
And we drifted apart,
Lived separately, Then moved apart.
***
We once said I love you without spite,
Without sarcasm, Without venum,
What we had worked,
But what finally came,
And finally ended it,
Was sharp words, and harsher jibes.

Time, Just Stand Still


I am the youngest I will ever be,
Yet the oldest I have ever seemed,
Stop the clock now,
And let time stand still.

For he is the reason,
Life is never dull,
But sometimes I need,
The clock to stop,
And time to leave me be.

But he marches on,
Tick by tock
And tock by tick,
Endlessly marching to the metronome.

So cherish the time,
Because tomorrow as with now,
You will be the youngest you ever were,
But the oldest you have ever been.

I’m Lovin’ You


We both sit here,
You know I feel it too,
I see it in your eyes,
Words aren’t needed,
When looks will do,
Love is not just said,
It’s something shown,
And between us it’s known.
