A poem about....

- The Darkness -

"She moves in slippers of velvet ..

her
DARKNESS exploring the deep ..

GREAT peering eyes .. roaming about
'A World'.. in it's bed fast asleep..

Night winds .. the
harp strings she 's playing

Whilst forests
give up
their songs..

A brown feathered ..
golden eyed owl ..
her friend..

Her hours 'mysterious' and 'long'

DARKNESS ..
.. the keeper of dreams
and of
secrets most profound..

even knowing the name .. of the lone star
that guides ..
'Santa'.. on his rounds.

Through howling winds ..
and
soft snowfalls

' DARKNESS'...
consistently there ..

And the silent breath
of a silver frost
adds shimmer to HER hair..

Violet
twilights of winter
serenely color
the dawn..

whispering gold and purple
shadows move over the lawn..

Proud ..
SHE enhances the vast sky..
Bright stars all
polished and gleaming ..

like tiny chipped diamonds
that light
up the night..

While small petaled daisies ..
lie dreaming..

and
...
when the first fingers of sunlight
creep silent
across the bay
SHE takes out her magic wand ..
once more
and turns into
herself into
'day'

Now,'i' tried this a while back
getting people to make a rhyme
and most of what 'i' got was flack
'maybe''i' hope it works this time
talking in rhyme gets the point across
just adds some spice and makes the sauce
sweeter and then you add a funny or two
mix it well and give it a toss!
Back in the past, we too, tried a few variations
on the same theme re rhyming, they lasted a short while..lol

I always think it's interesting how some threads catch on
and become very popular ..
and others which might appear interesting,
just fade away.

Anyway, agreed,
let's try your nice idea again.....

SO ..

with Christmas round the corner
at this time of year,
lets pen a rhyme or too..
and be of real good cheer..

i remember the troll wars of 2010.

a campaign fought and won was about,

Plagiarism..

In sallow-grey and other ashen hues,
Disrobed of warming flesh
That reassures the bones,
A twisted pose
Portrayed my physicality
Not unlike the carcass of a prey.

'PLAGIARISM'..

Yes, I remember,
something often bandied about here.

I'd get no joy or satisfaction from it>

plagiarism >
passing of a piece as my own.. tho'

knowing in my soul I didn't write the piece..
would simply cancel out..

One can never lie to oneself.

check in to the ticket desk a half an hour to go
Heading for the boarding gate I'm feeling kind of low
Fifteen minutes later I'm sitting on my plane
Fasten my safety belt I'm taking off again

And I'm moving on, movin' on from town to town
Movin on baby hey I'm never touching the ground


I plagerize every thing,...

Many have I loved - Many times been bitten
Many times I've gazed along the open road.

Many times I've lied - Many times I've listened
Many times I've wondered how much there is to know.

Many dreams come true and some have silver linings
I live for my dream and a pocketful of gold.

Mellow is the man who knows what he's been missing
Many many men can't see the open road.

Many is a word that only leaves you guessing
Guessing 'bout a thing you really ought to know, ooh!
You really ought to know...

DEAD OR DYING
When you peer into their eyes are they gleaming or scheming
Awaiting the finality,heavy iron, stamping steel, dealt or dealing
making a decision,fast ,faster or grinding slowly maybe revealing
still part of the cast,recessed but present ,grey but with feeling R.C.

Hmmmm wasn't sure what I supposed to say ,so blurted out my most recent rambling. Rick

So nice of you to say..

,

it is true and very understandable that
everyone has different tastes;
I think it's down to the fact we all express ourselves
individually.

THANKS again.
