Potluck Poetry

It’s On Tonight


Word whispered out, “It’s on tonight.”The War Machine

Warriors rounded into one

Lightest armor and weapons chose

Into evening we would run

King and men flanked ridges around

Insuring foe’s defeat

Queen and court made ready for fight

Stockpiling bastions for retreat

Advancing slow on sleeping foes

Ice water soon to break

Projectiles at the ready

Balloons will abruptly awake

It Was A Cold Rainy Sunday Afternoon

Push hard the black pencilSolace
Making it really dull
Wrinkle and rip the stencil
Give them something to mull

Not with too much tensile
All words need to be culled
Boiled down like the lentil
Leaving nothing made null

Because It’s There

Look at the mountainPoetry On Stone
Crops and holds galore
Hammer slams the forge

Sycophantic beat
Adjective addicts
Slipping rocks slide feet

Over hand reaching
Miss the point passing
Hammer slams the forge

Cold tempered steel slice
Overused device
Save the muscles price

Under Your Feet

Under my sky is under your feetfootprints
Six foot under just out of my reach
Once in a while falls through a cat’s turd
You see it is food for our fat birds
