Tuesday Writing Prompt, 8/4

foggy night

BENEATH

The fog creeps in beneath the surface of the night 

Leaving a chill that can bring on a fright 

As the moon shines high with its blue eerie light

It keeps you inside in fear of what might

The sound of the stream rushing at its low height

Running through the quiet valley as though to take flight

The sound of the owls as they beckon for a fight

Keeps us inside beneath the surface of the night.

Tuesday Writing Prompt, July 28

Cursive Writing

In an era of today’s technology, evolves neglect of writing by hand

And schools focus on futures of new projects they need to manned

We have no need of stationary, for everything goes by email

No remembrance or need of touch, to share our love through mail.

How very sad to become the robots we now have become

And forgetting the feel of love, in mail it once did come

Those of us who remember the beauty that writing can be

Can now use cursive writing as coded messages for others to see.

Flying Ace, Diminishing Poetry

A New Flying Ace

squirrel close

I came to the feeder but there was not even a trace

Between the bird and the chipmunks, it’s a hard race

Timing must be right, to win the fight, to be the new ace.

There’s no time for sitting in the soft lawn chair

Where you can sit, relax and grow long your hair

Time is wasted, food is gone, leaving you only air.

Donna Matthews of Go Dog Go Cafe has tossed out the challenge for diminishing poetry. Since I had never tried it before, I gave it a shot.

Today’s poetry form is called Diminishing Verse Poetry. From Brewer, “The main rule of diminishing verse poetry is to remove the first letter of end word in the previous line.”

Come join in on the fun to see what you can do. And as always in whatever you do, remember to be kind. Let others shine with you.

If I never explored the garden, of it’s love and beauty that be

I would miss yellows and purples or other colors to see

If I never felt the raindrops, as it gathered on leaves around

I would never hear the beauty in its quiet, gentle sound

If I never saw the sunset and it breathed after the storm

I would never see the beauty in the clouds as they form

If I never saw the snowfall as to clung to trees above

I would never hear its quietness like the cooing of a dove

If I never loved another how profoundly sad to be

For missing all those gifts from God that He would give to me.

Tuesday Writing Prompt, July 7

Picture of my street

The Stillness of the Morn

In the stillness of the morning, before day has ere began

The fog fill the tress and hangs heavy across the land

The moisture covers thickly and drips heavy from the trees

No sounds of life among them, not even birds or bees

One dare not be the first, the break this eerie sound

In the stillness of morning, there is no sound around.
