Inspirations (Acrostic Challenge)

by 50djohnson

gorgeous-pink-september-sunrises-001

Poetry challenge: Acrostic poem.



From the lonely “I”sland of emotion flowing from deep within

Ever bubbling upward”N”eath all the confusion wondering where it has been .

Desperately trying to “S”pring forth joyfully into the light of day.

Pushing through layers of “P”ain, as a bulb bursting through the soil of clay.

Work to live (loop poetry challenge)

by Rhyme In Time

Alas, it’s time to work,
Work to pay the bills.
Bills I pay to live,
Live within a home.
Home where I relax,
Relax until it’s time,
Time to work again.

Gondola’s Leaking (Rispetto challenge)

by Rhyme In Time

Gondola has a leak;
I hope it won’t get worse.
This grand canal antique
Will echo with my curse!

Romantic getaway?
We wasted two month’s pay.
Now both of us are broke,
And all we got was soaked.

This Old House

by HemmingPlay

Front Door

by Hemmingplay

This old house may be wood and paint and memories, but
Lately, the sense that our time here will end has hovered around me,
The faint melancholy of knowing that one day I will walk out one last time,
Hand the keys to someone who won’t know any of it.

That spot in the dining room wall where a teenage
Tantrum left a divot in the plaster from a chair tossed in anger.
Where the same child discovered the internet, found a girl
In California and talked up a huge long-distance phone bill.

Where B&B guests gathered from around the world
To chat at the table over Bismarks and sausages and coffee on
Their brief swing through this old house, and our lives.

From Summer Sounds

by HemmingPlay

10334420_477963595736461_9042973705824638941_n

Cicadas, and the birds that hunt them.

A neighbor’s lawnmower.

The whisper of the maple leaves in a cool morning breeze.

A dog, barking for show somewhere over there.

A catch in the air, ever so faint, a momentary pause.

News of the first real cold front coming down out of Canada.

The fat rump of late summer has settled in, humid and hot.
