Summertime fun

Grand-daughter, her boyfriend and I enjoyed a fun night of music in the park and a Classic Car Show. Grand-daughter brought her ‘85 RX-7 to show off 🙂 and we got to listen to our favorite country music singer too. I love Summer!!

Pencil vs Poodle

Were you a Pencil or a Poodle

Skirt fan, back in the days of rockn’roll?

Dancing slow with The Diamonds

Strolling in a pencil skirt,

Or swing’n the poodle skirt

Jitterbugging with

Bill Haley in your

Saddle shoes,

When teens

Danced.

Full of lofty goals

I soar higher than the stars

Music in my soul

Catapulting me forward

Until I reach a million dreams

Tanka

(I was inspired to write this poem after listening to “A Million Dreams” Song from the movie “The Greatest Showman” and I added it to a paper collage piece I was working on that the song also inspired me to create😩)

Listen to the Lyrics

Some words on paper

Come alive and touch people

The alphabet will speak

A heartfelt message of truth

To those willing to hear

Sense or Nonsense?

I see the look of the musician,

I think he’s angry at the omission.

He finds it hard to comprehend

Overshadowing the note’s loose end

Causing a chirping like a flamingo

Creating a strange and quirky lingo.

Spoken badly by the blues singer,

Please don’t let this composition linger

Music and song need thought and time

Senses suffer in nonsense rhyme

Rhyme

( I found an online Poem Generator that I decided to try out today.  It had me type in nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc and then it generates what is supposed to be a poem! 🙂  haha.  However, I took what seemed to me to be complete nonsense and rewrote it to at least, perhaps, have some meaning. 🙂
Any thoughts?   What do you think?  Does it make any sense or is it just nonsense?

Sound in the City

Music, performers, singing
For a handful of humanity

Scattered in the big city 

Working hard to reach their goals

The invisible, the unknown

Hearts came together

Dreams came true

Those unheard voices

Tonight 

Spoke
