So why can't man be more reasonable? *sigh*

of light.


Immortal rays of light,
peak from nuclear winter;
cold reason destroys eternity -
forever, here and now;
embrace, no longer fight.

Hmmm...interesting, JT, if a wee bit obscure. :)

Maybe more like unintelligable. Just trying the reverse of Pamela's theme. You see, it is the opposite view, albeit poorly written. Hope she doesn't mind my tag a long. But where is she anyway? And that darn PIM site did it again today. My computers hate pop-ups and they prohibit copying or printing pop-ups. But you keep on nagging, so I'll post a 15 word, plus 5 pieces thing, if what I wrote down makes any sense to me when its in type. Laughable, but at least I tried.

The shocks awake life;
beyond time,
nothing is safe.
Insane laughter -
Crash and fire,
peace at last.

Oh, JT, it was "that d... list" again today. For about the 60th time, or more. *sigh*
But just for you, I tried to squeeze out one more. Aaaack!

Light is life.
Beyond its reach
we wither
like plants
denied the sun.

Ps..you don't have to explain how you got them. We're used to fiddling with those pieces and letters by now. Like: with/er And I was able to cover the et of planets with a single t, to make plants. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

I love this line. Heard something similar before, but don't think this one. Sounds like a good first sentence for a pulp fiction novel. Thanks.

Actually, I think it's a quote from somewhere but don't remember exactly.

Indifferent cloud
merely
kisses the leaf
without touching
the shrouded
cactus marrow;
only faith
sustains the plant.

Ah, shucks, I wanted to use indifferent but it just didn't fit in right. I like what you did with it.

Man are reasonable; it's woman that cause trouble. Didn't that happen in the Garden of Eden! :roll:

I doubt it. Just another case of a whiny man putting the finger of blame on somebody else. She didn't ram it down his throat remember.

Flirtations

Bewitching Moon,
her cradled embrace
tugging at tides,
promising briny pools bliss,
tempting seas with a kiss.

Long Shadows

He was reading lines
to a rose at midnight;
he should have been
gazing
into forgotten eyes.

Same old list, so I found a poetry generator and made this instead.

I Can't Write a Poem
Forget it
You must be kidding
My poet shirt is in the wash.
It's raining and the creek might rise.
There is a spider hanging over my desk.
Nobody ever wrote anything good on a Thursday.
My horoscope said "Don't begin any new projects".
There is a piece of cake in the fridge with my name on it.
The phaze of the moon is clashing with my frame of mind.
A black cat just walked across my keyboard.
Time's up? Uh oh!
All I have is a dumb list of excuses.
You like it? Really? No kidding.
Thanks a lot. Would you like to see another one?

here's the site.

Mother’s Treasured Gift

Heaven’s grandeur
lives
in the sunshine
of a dandelion flower
clasped
in a little boy’s hand.

Very nice, Lilac! Dandelion's make me see a different picture. Yankees ate them as spring greens. :)

I went way, way over today. Oh well.

Are You Lonesome Tonight?

We all rocked
around the clock
addicted to noise,
motion and gin,
blood buzzing
in our ears --
wanting summer
to never end.
Then that night
came and
Elvis was dead.

Couldn't resist the lure of that word Elvis, I see. :D

In unwoven sleep
I breathe the restlessness
of phantom dreams,
the forces of
my false mind

Black outside shoes
Particles of postcards
New white silence
