Imagination Land

Pig flying

Sitting backwards in a corner of my circle

Wearing my Saturday best

I watched as the stars rearranged themselves in the sky

To greet the sun rising in the west

So awestruck was I

I barely ducked a herd of pigs flying by

One of them wearing a polka dot vest

Laughing at me in jest

I turned my back on time as it faced me

The clock striking thirteen in protest

The circle I was in was becoming a square

As a mouse was put to the test

To eat an elephant for lunch

Feeling stressed at his first munch

I was glad I was just a guest

In this imaginary backwards land of reverse

And now I’m choosing to end this verse

Nonsense Rhyme

Prompt: Today, I’d like you to take one of the following statements of something impossible, and then write a poem in which the impossible thing happens:

The sun can’t rise in the west.

A circle can’t have corners.

Pigs can’t fly.

The clock can’t strike thirteen.

The stars cannot rearrange themselves in the sky.

A mouse can’t eat an elephant.

My Future

park pathway
The Lord has future plans for me that are good.
I trust in Him, for I know He will act.
He has plans that are exact.

He will give me an abundant life.
I do not have to worry,
or be in a hurry.

He will provide for me,
As He provides for the birds of the air.
I can depend on His care.

Therefore, I will delight myself in Him,
and trust in Him, for He does guarantee
the desires of my heart He’ll give to me.

As I trust Him and acknowledge Him,
He will direct my paths and make them straight,
And they’ll lead me right to Heaven’s gate.

My eye, nor ear, nor heart, cannot even imagine
what He has prepared for me,
Here on earth and in the Heavenly.

I have faith that He will reward me as I seek Him,
and love Him with all my heart, mind and soul.
That is my future, that is my goal.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:6)

Simultaneity

Many different hats

Can you take me to town before 3

I really need to talk to PCC

I’m off work at 1 and need a ride you see

Please, don’t forget about me

Have you made those phone calls yet

Sponsors for the Show I need to get

Hope your schedule’s not too tight

We need our new art posted to the site

Have you written that book review

Remember, in just a few days it’s due

Discussion post Thursday deadline

Read lecture and write, no time to whine

Internet shut down, call put on hold

Need a new password I am told

Housework and sleep will just have to wait

So many hats to wear, can’t be late

Time is running, and I am too

Some days there’s just too much to do!

Rhyme

NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 10

Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem of simultaneity – in which multiple things are happing at once.

Memo: From Me

Gray Squirrel

Dear Gray Squirrel,

Tell me, what are you looking for!

The bird food you do deplete,

Yet you keep passing by my door,

Is your search never complete?

Your manners I do deplore!

Always looking for a tasty treat!

You’ve had that, yet look for more!

Your greed knows no defeat!

Rhyme

This poem was inspired by the gray squirrel that lives in a tree in my backyard who seems to never get full nor tired. He is always eating or searching. He is cute but can really be a pest at times! 😊

National Compliment Day

Bouquet of Flowers, compliments

Admire someone today

Bless them too

Compliments pay

Delights spew

Encouraging words say

Favors do

Give thanks or pray

Honor a few

Inspire not inveigh

Just give a hug or two

Kindness display

Laud anew

Make someone’s day

Nod out of the blue

Ovation convey

Praise imbue

Quiet gratitude portray

Uplift in the midst of ado

Visit to chase away gray

Write thoughtful words true

X-out actions that cause dismay

Yes, bless others all day through

Zip berating, give a kudos bouquet

A Winter’s Delight

Ornamental Cabbage and Kale In Winter coved by raindrops

Cabbages and Kale

Wear Ruffles and Pearls

In the land of kings

They dance til dawn

While sparrows watch

And nightingale sings

Their splendor soon fades

As warm breezes kiss

And sunshine brings

The end of Winter’s ball

And thus herald in

Sights which are Spring’s

Squirrel Saga Continues

Squirrel in bird feeder eating seeds

Mr. Gray Squirrel is back today

Eating from the feeder like it’s okay

“You’re a funny looking bird” I say

My comment causes him no dismay

“Mighty fine sunflower seeds” says he

“Quite worth my trip down the tree”

“Ah yes, but not meant for you” says me

With a smile and nod, away he does flee

Narrative/Rhyme

To Be Continued….I imagine
