So how about this. Someone gives a word and the next person that comes along gives a poem about said word, or has the word in the poem. Be nice and let others in the rotation though. This is orignal writing through, so please only stuff you have written yourself. It doesn't have to be one you just came up with off the top of your head, but that works too Smile

first word : Quickly

Quickly comes the twilight falling,
And at dusk we hear leaves falling,
Gentle voice of night bird calling
Sweet and clear his song.....

Constantly staring at the floor
Sheltered by the outside door
Trembling, trembling evermore
Little kittly lets out a roar

Morning peeks out
Behind a cloud
The daisies shout
Because they're proud

They've washed today
They'll soon dry out
The bees at play
Are on their route

The sun gets high
The clouds are blown
The daisies sigh
Where love has shone

Colors melting in my mind
Pigments of a different clime
Warming blue and burgundy
Amidst cacophony of sea.

Singing.

singing the sweet mourning
yet it came with out warning
the ivory keys has stopped playing
and the angels themselfs keep praying
that the beauty and grace
from your sweet embrace
shall remain here
and very near

Mountain high, foothills lower, and lower yet
the plain, seen from above in four o'clock haze.
I don't usually see from this birds' eyes' view; I'm set
in my channels of roads drawn through my days.

Strain and struggle little fly,
but you shall not be leaving.
For you are tangled in the spiders web,
that she spent all night weaving.

Candy eyes and wheat like hair,
Ruffled gently in the air,
Deep inside your sweet confection
Melts in chocolate misdirection.

Sad, sad, you poor horned toad
Lying flatly in the road
All your plans made for today
Ended by my Chevrolet

I garbled my last effort and, since it was written on the spot, have no idea what one of the words was meant to be. Sorry. I guess I posted too early after waking this morning.

Does that mean if we understand it, our thinking is garbled?

Moving right along:

My ornate gargoyle
Has been boiled in oil
'Cause my brain cells have marbled
And my thinking is garbled

Hairspray from the foaming sea,
Salt of all eternity,
Lines my lashes
Blinds my eyes
Shells from some
Small thing's demise

seaweed dreams on the ocean floor
lazy weeds beneath a constant roar
as wind and waves assault the shore
and ever was and evermore
