One afternoon when she returned to the house
Lightly walked to her wardrobe to change her blouse
In a petulant way, she took her shoes off
Liberosis she thought and a drink she quaff
She banished the thought of the tall officer
Tough attitude though she still needs the answer
“How dare he,” she mused and tried to fill her time
“I’ll kill him,” she thought, but that would be a crime
She started reading a book that relaxed her
The story was good, she fell asleep after
One afternoon when she returned to the house
Lightly walked to her wardrobe to change her blouse

This ambedo of a crumbling cloud
An eminent tide and I’m dazzled
This ambedo of a crumbling cloud

He misbehaved and his flight cancelled
A voracious reader of nature
An eminent tide and I’m dazzled

He cares to switch his pace with ardour
I waited for him so he could see
A voracious reader of nature

We looked at the cloud with its beauty
I gave him some of my blackberries
I waited for him so he could see

This ambedo if we could just freeze
The tide and birds all singing sweetly
I gave him some of my blackberries

Such a lovely day we both agree
This ambedo of a crumbling cloud
The tide and birds all singing sweetly
This ambedo of a crumbling cloud

Key is to stay calm

The key is to stay calm in the deck
A glass of wine as she gave me a peck
Bugs thrumming in the grasses above
Birds chirping higher up and the dove
Flying in a row, no fight, no wreck

Magnolia blooming last time I check
Plant some flowers for her, not henpeck
A big red rose as I court my love
Key is to stay calm

Next-door garden and a hollow beck
Strip of land as we go for a trek
Let’s not split, me and my ladylove
Singing sweet songs like two turtle doves
As well as dancing in discotheque
Key is to stay calm*

Day Nine – Help!

Day Nine – Help!

kid

How can people vent their ire on him?

How can they undo what they’ve done?

Out of shell shock came his grin

How can they handle this?

With straps across him

A single bomb

Trim his lot

No cheer

Help!*

arch

An altschmerz so to speak
His insidious act
Climbing up the lattice
Up the mountain with arch
Made of stones such fortress

An altschmerz so to speak
A simple assemble
He cheated in his name
What he meant was quite weak
Let’s defame him and shamed

An altschmerz so to speak
Just because of the pearl
He’s caught in a cleft stick
And such a weak excuse
Made us all ballistic

Come and follow me

Come and follow me

Come and follow me to this place

Chasm that cut across the base

Strum of waves as they hit the rocks

Blithesome like a garden of space

Sea as primal highways of life

Free as far as the eyes can reach

Key to my heart while you’re near me

We can rise up as we beseech*

* A poetic form created by Lencio Dominic Rodrigues, the Lento is named after it’s creator, taken from his first name Lencio and rhymed to Cento, an existing form of poetry.

A Lento consists of two quatrains with a fixed rhyme scheme of abcb, defe as the second and forth lines of each stanza must rhyme. To take it a step further, but not required, try rhyming the first and third lines as well as the second and forth lines of each stanza in this rhyming pattern: abab, cdcd. The fun part of this poem is thrown in here as all the FIRST words of each verse should rhyme. There is no fixed syllable structure to the Lento, but keeping a good, flowing rhythm is recommended.

Music Prompt # 77 “Careless Whisper” by George Michael.

Music Prompt # 77 “Careless Whisper” by George Michael.

Months and years have passed and I still miss you
Your sweet smile, apple stew and coffee brew
I long for your velvety touch
And the sunshine I miss that much
To add, our foothill walks and the mountains
Wearing my red dress with pearly buttons

No regrets, I always say, what we had
Those were special and really, not so bad
Things happened and now we’re apart
No choice but have happiness thwart
Learn the lesson, say thanks and we move on
Goodbye, we now let bygone by bygone
