Poetics - Sci-Fi 11/16/13

New Horizons

Cold and dark
So far from home
Will I ever feel the sun again?

The end has happened
But you cannot see
The heavens obscure the horror.

Onward though to a new beginning
Starting over, ever so sure.
Leave the hate, bring the love.

No monsters, only us
Beings...human, alien and more
Together forever bound.

Bound To This Earth

Stock Photo of a Path  to Toketee Falls, Oregon
Down the path
I do trod
Always bound to this earth
By you and to you
With an unseen rope
Always near but never seen,

We've love since the beginning of time
And even though we move through time and space
Layer upon layer,
Our love is never realized.

In and out of time we go
Always seeking, always looking
But never finding.

How long will it go on
How long shall we wait
Til the end of life, til the end of time?

NaPoWriMo - Day 13

Walking, walking along the path
Listening, watching, savoring
Little scratchy noises at my feet
The beat of wings at my head

Sun rays warm my head
Gentle breeze cool my brow
The knots start to untie
The rope to disappear

My step is lighter now
A smile on my face
Gods Glory all around me
Enveloping me in peace

All is right, for the moment
The knots all gone, for the moment
I am sane, relaxed, for the moment,
I lift my hand in pure abandonment, for the moment!

And the moment is gone!

NaPoWriMo Day 12

You profess love to me
Yet what you did was unforgivable
You acted like nothing was wrong
Wanted to go on as if nothing had happened.

It did, not once, or twice
But time and again and again.
With no remorse on your part

It tore us apart
The ripples we far and wide
Yet you smiled
Like nothing was wrong.

So be it then,
I will smile and carry on,
But know deep down
I hate you for what you did!

Failure, a failure

Yes, to me you are perfect

NaPoWriMo Day 10

Dear Mr Squirrel

How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways......

One...fried    stew            Three...dead. 

© copyright 2013-04-15 13:13:44 - All Rights Reserved


Gleaming eyes are looking at me

As I huddle under my sheets,

They just hang there,
Glowing wide and bright.

No body, or head or anything else,
Just EYES!

My limbs are shaking, 
What does it want?

Go away monster,
Go away now!

Is he gone? Dare I look?
Noooo, he is still there!

Well, scared or not,
I need to get up.

So stand back, Monster!
Or I will kick you back in your hole!

So up I spring, ready for action
Kick, Kick, Crash.....

Oh no.....
It was only me in the MIRROR!

Now 7 years bad luck!
Stupid monster!

NaPoWriMo Day 9

Running, running, running,

Sweat in my eyes

Darkness all around

Unseen noises

Running, running, running,

Legs cramping

Roots grab me

Pulling me down, down, down.

Running, running, running,

Don't know from what

Overwhelming fear

Freezing my heart

Running, running, running,

Noises getting closer

Unable to keep going



Boo! It's just me....
Your worst nightmare
Ha, ha, ha
I am back.

Move before I eat thee!

NaPoWriMo - Day 7

How wonderful nature is outside my window.
The cardinals feast on my birdseed.
Doves scratch for seed on the ground.
Blue Jays squawk in command.
Chickadees clambering for room.
Crows waiting for the right moment.
The squirrels run and scamper.
Moving their seeds from spot to spot.
The leaves flutter, yawning in the wind
The trees sigh as the sun rises.
They stretch their limbs out wide.
The shadows run and hide.
Busy bees buzz quickly by.
The butterflies flutter about.
Ah such a glorious time.
Do YOU have such a window to nature?

NaPoWriMo - Day 6


I feel the tears
Running down

I shiver at
Your brittle touch

To the blinding
Yet quiet dark

To the bareness
And death

It was great
While it lasted

I'll Be Back

I'll Be Back

He goes to help
He says he'll be fine
He trained you see
I'll be back soon
Then we'll be free.

A knock on the door
A lump in my throat
I can barely breath
I open the door
The Army Chaplains are all I see!

NaPoWriMo - Day 4

Unfortunate Conflict of Interest
Marriage vows are said
Of course nothing is in stone.
She likes caviar
He likes tuna.
Onward they go
Hoping for the best
But she likes picket fences,
He likes shrubs.
The days go by
Year after year
She likes silk
He likes flannel.
The golden times are here
They made is all this way
But she still likes roses,
He likes none
Into the ground they go
A long time in coming
But she loved him
And he loved her!

NaPoWriMo - Day 3

Over There

Over there, over there
I know I spy a carrier
No, No, you silly girl
It is just a battle ship

Over there, over there,
I know I spy a carrier.
No, No, you silly girl
It is just a destroyer.

Over there, over there,
I know I spy a carrier.
Again no, you silly girl
It is just a cruiser.

Over there, over there,
I know I spy a carrier.
And you silly boy
I know its true
For my dad is on it.

NaPoWriMo - Day 2

Nursery - What???

Mary had a little lamb
It tipped the scales at a ton
It's fleece was as white as mud
And every where that Mary went
Her lamb was never there.
While Jack was nimble and
Jack was quick,
The turtle beat him to the candle stick.
Now Mary, Mary quite contrary
When asked about her garden
Did scream and vent about the bugs!
Then with their heads.
Our neighbor Jack Spratt could eat no fat,
His wife could eat no lean.
But was so big he couldn't reach the platter.
And his wife wasted away to nothing.
Around the corner live Little Jack Horner
Eating his Christmas pie
When he stuck in his thumb,
And pulled out a nub, and said
Call 911!
And lastly, poor Little Bo Peep,
She has lost her sheep.
She just needs to check the butcher shop!

Failure, Failure

NaPoWriMo Day 1

Jack and Jill went up the hill
And what do you think they found?
A little ole man stocking his still
Dressed up as a clown.
Jack cried out at the silly site
And Jill fell laughing to the ground!

Little Birds

The birds how beautiful and bright
A gift from God for our wondrous sight
A gift to be enjoyed from day until night

Little Bird on my feeder gazing in at me
What do you see little friend while I am gazing at you?

My Vampire Lover

A drop of blood
a soulful sigh,
My lovers hands
Upon my thighs.

He holds my arm
Warm breath on my face,
Soft cushion behind my head
My heart beating as if in a race.

He tells me it won't hurt
That all will be well,
Now hold my breath
And time will tell!

It is finished he says
You were wonderful,
You can open your eyes
But be careful.

I open my eyes
my vampire lover to see,
WHAT, no lover, no vampire
What happened to me.

Oh, yeah, I was here to give blood
Twas only the lab tech,
Cute though he was
My vampire lover he is not!
