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.

World Poetry Day: As Poetry


It’s such a joy,
To speak to you,
In such a format,
As poetry.
***
It is my passion,
To write it down,
In the loved way,
As poetry.
***
It is my thanks,
To you my reader,
In reading my work,
As poetry.

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.

Alternative Facts


We live in a time,
Filled with opinion not fact,
Filled with fantasy not news,
Where WordPress depresses,
And claims to be views.
***
We are closer to war,
Believing alternative facts,
Believing alternative news,
The rumour mill,
And the next daily sleuth.
***
Where are we going,
When alternative news becomes fact,
When alternative fact becomes news,
Are we lining our destruction,
Pulling the pin, lightning the fuse.
***
Is it not our right,
To believe alternative facts,
To believe alternative news,
Spreading our world,
Sharing our views.
***
Rights have responsibility,
Like teaching real facts,
Like dispelling fake news,
So be responsible and teach,
But not just your views.

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.
