Time Lord

Clock faces

Don’t let any moment slip by

Cus hours tend to fly

Seconds march on

Til life is gone

And the clock hands can’t be delayed

Minutes fade

The hourglass runs

No past reruns

Your life’s chronology is now

Present avow

Future gain

Not live in vain.

Color Beyond Better

Colored pencils forming a heart shape

Broken crayons still color

Broken hearts still love

Color your world bright

Color is beautiful

Love everyone

Love never fails

Bright spots attract growth

Bright days attract smiles

Beautiful smiles

Beautiful thoughts

Everyone needs a smile

Everyone matters

Fails are bound to happen

Fails are opportunities to try again

Growth comes from fails

Growth often happens slowly

Smiles are free

Smiles are needed

Smiles are upside down frowns

Smiles lighten up the world

Thoughts spoken can cause regret

Thoughts unspoken can cause regret

Smile at life, you only get one chance

Smile at life and things will go better

Matters of the heart

Matters of the mind

Happen to all of us

Happen unexpectedly

Again and again and

Again and again

Fails are just one time errs not failures

Fails are a chance to try something new

Slowly time goes for those who wait

Slowly time goes for the lonely

Free yourself from doubts trust God

Free yourself from worry trust God

Needed people who are friendly

Needed people who care

Frowns compliment garments of gloom

Frowns are smiles upside down

World needs your love

World needs your smile

Regret steals happiness

Regret steals time

Chance offers new opportunities

Chance offers new life

Better life can be yours today

Better take a chance before it’s too late

Better

Better

#OctPoWriMo 2018

Whew! This is my first try at writing a Blitz poem! It was a challenge, somewhat confusing at times, and took me awhile but I enjoyed it and I will be trying this form out again! Info is below if you would like to try writing one.

The Blitz Poem, a poetry form created by Robert Keim.

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a cliché. Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.
