Night Shadows

IMG_5394[1]
Shadows in spooky wood
creepy, crawler in the air
flapping, flipping, flopping.
Wide-eye owl in a tree;
flying gloom around me
 
Shadows in spooky wood
creepy, crawler, on the ground.
Snarling, growling, howling
beady-eyed ground critter
casting gloom around me.
 
Shadows in spooky wood
creepy crawler in a tree;
bashing, crashing, dashing.
Bug-eyed mouse I do see
sneaky gloom around me!
 
Shadows tall as it can be.
Creepy crawler little old me
flapping, snarling, bashing;
big-eyed boy as tall as can be.
Shedding gloom on all who see!

the imaginary garden with real toads

Kid’s… Play Ball

Take me out to the ball park,
take me out to the field,
buy me some cleats and power drink
please, please help me to get
off of the couch!
Let me run, run, run
for my health’s sake;
instead of just watching the game.
Aahhh…
It’s first,
second and
third base;
a slide into home.

All I need is one chance;
do something out-side.
There isn’t any better way
to run, run, run
for my health’s sake;
if I’m flabby it’s my blame!
Aahh…
I’ll be a star
when I
play real
baseball!

Linking up with Poetry Jam… getting some exercise today!

counting petals one by one
poises playing in the sun
in the garden I can see
red lady bugs beneath my knee
 
buzzing, buzzing bumble bee
 
counting pebbles one by one
slippery stones in the sun
in the garden I can see
glittering granite by the tree
 
buzzing, buzzing bumble bee
 
counting dew drops one by one
soggy water drying in the sun
in the garden I can see
bird bath water from the sea
 
I’m buzzing, buzzing… counting
petals, pebbles and dew drops!


Linking to dVerse later today with objects around the home. I may have taken a few liberties by going out of my home into my garden place. It’s National Poetry Month… join the fun with NaPoWriMo as we celebrate. Writing for Kids this month!

It’s Dirt

2012 06 26_6665
It’s dirt I like
the grim and grub,
to creep upon by day,
to sleep upon at night;
under star-lit skies.

It’s dirt I like
with creepy crawlers;
those things that make
me scream and shriek
over ugly legged things.

It’s dirt I like
to fix and mix mud
with wiggly worms
and earthy stuff
in icky, gooey, globs.

It’s dirt I like!

You are Beautiful!

DSC03492_edited-1
 
Monarch in my net
walk with me awhile;
make me dance and smile!
Wings as stained glass
orange and black,
black and orange;
I wish I had wings!
 
Monarch in my net
walk with me awhile;
make me dance and smile!
Mama says you fly
hundreds of miles away;
when snow swirls skies.
I wish I too could fly!
 
Monarch in my net
walk with me awhile;
make me dance and smile!
You dance dainty atop
milkweed blooms;
sweet like perfume
are purple blooms atop.
I wish I could dance too!
 
Monarch in my net
walk with me awhile;
make me dance and smile!
I found fuzzy caterpillar;
saw you sleep awhile.
One day you stretched new;
someday I’ll be beautiful too!


“Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.” I Peter 3:3-4

Remember the Ark

DSCN0442_edited-1
So many animals
in wooden ark;
some could fly,
some could crawl,
some could hop,
and some could run.
Forty long days of
splish, splash, slosh!

So many animals
in wooden ark;
come striped tiger
come big elephant
come colorful peacock,
and come dizzy dino!
Forty long days of
splish, splash, slosh!

So many animals
in wooden ark;
hum Noah’s family,
hum busy bugs,
hum creaky planks…
all hum while you sleep.
Forty long days of
splish, splash, slosh!


“And they went into the ark to Noah, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. So those that entered, male and female of all living flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the Lord shut him in. Genesis 7:15-16


Linking up with dVerse where we are talking with the animals. Join NaPoWriMo as we celebrate Poetry Month! I’ll be writing for the children this month… may they be inspired to write their own poems.

Multihued

DSCN1176

The colors of the rainbow
you are granddaughter, dear .

Fire engine scarlet, scream
your energetic personality.

Orange… sweet as fruit
or fruity in childless ways.

Sunlit yellow your smile;
endless to all you rally.

Emerald for your spiritual
wonder… so priceless!

Blue, blue, blue, blue, blue;
absolutely your darling one.

Indigo a color which shines
in your sparkling eyes .

Vivacious violet for girly
things: dolls, blooms, dresses.

A spectrum of internal beauty,
in compassion you share with all.
