    I like how the first and final line rhyme.

    Another oldie from me. It is untitled.

    A dozen fireflies collide,
    Derived, the path unknown.

    They spy the route, within the clouds,
    Before they've even flown.

    Although they've yet to live their lives,
    Have yet to feel regret.

    Still searching for a clear, blue sky,
    They long now, to forget.

    In time, their path is destined,
    For beauty, faith and pain.

    Sculpted in the same, fine script,
    To play the scene again.

    They fly, onward,
    Regardless of the danger sensed ahead.

    Eyes to the sun, envisioning
    The life pursued instead.

    And as they clash, their knowledge
    Now unfolds to find it all.

    They do not fear the afterlife,
    As strength comes from the fall.

    Standing eternally still
    But restless all the while
    All life flowing freely by
    Ages past and here I remain
    To seasons tied
    In colours flurry of change
    through elements of heat and cold I've endured
    restless stillness disturbed
    Yet I flourish still and survive.....

    Sorrowful yet still hopeful and empowering.

    This is one of my favourite creations:

    How to Write a Poem

    So you want to write a poem,
    all other artforms failed.
    It seemed the most efficient way
    to have your thoughts unveiled.

    To understand the intricate
    and tangled ways we pine.
    Then only to be troubled
    by words and flow, and rhyme.

    How can a person's feelings
    be summed up with some grammar?
    Some adjectives and adverbs,
    used only for the glamour?

    A poem is not words, you see,
    there is no right or wrong.
    Not something to be analysed,
    but voice immersed in song.

    So when you write a poem
    remember to be real.
    Include your sugar coating,
    but don't forget to feel.

    Siren of the deep blue all encompassing sea,
    Answering the oceanic kings call,
    Overpowering need for at his side to be,
    From all she knew she turned and sped,
    Through waters blue an green beautiful an bleak,
    As waves born in storms crashed she would flee,
    into his embrace and a night of eternal glee...

    I like the flow of that, locust.

    Crimson and red, so glistening, slight,
    preparing for battle, furious might.
    Hiding the brilliance, radiance flees,
    while trying to stand, you land on your knees.

    Feeling no warmth, in what you held close.
    Reading no label, just taking the dose.
    Searching for something, pure, to unyeild,
    Most vulnerable, peering around a great sheild.

    While dancing to music, your toes go all numb,
    Alighted in hope, of days yet to come.
    But still hold your breath, while swimming an ocean,
    your heart will feel nothing, if drowned in emotion.

    Flitter onward little nymph
    The beast is watching every breath
    Remind yourself in heart and mind
    Lest you give them up at once to bind

    Forge ahead a steady pace
    Denying every glimpse of face
    Discovered when you rest or sleep
    Another fool who dared too deep

    You've heard what claws have torn asunder
    Witnessed the cacophonous thunder
    Allow nothing to compromise your name
    Unless you revel in destructive pain

    You're soul is yours alone to lose
    It matters little which path you choose
    Evade, reject, scheme, and run
    The beast awaits at every one

    He's played this game a thousand times
    Rehearsed the rhythm and the rhyme
    Surrender is the only chance
    Embrace your death enjoy the dance

    Asleep

    Mirrored waves of tattered ribbon,
    twisting in my sight.

    Shredded from the vicious winds,
    and faded from the night.

    Brewing ancient bubbles,
    formed from effervescent dreams.

    They crumble from the slightest touch,
    And nothing’s as it seems.

    Through folding fury, showered
    In a mass of rendered calm,

    The blanket, soft and ignorant,
    will keep me safe from harm.

    Tomorrow is a blinding force,
    to reckon, is to fail.

    To falter through decisive mist,
    the beast now set to sail.

    Despairing, in the questions,
    that await within the morn.

    To covet what we could have had,
    and live the past in scorn..

    What future does the new day bring?
    What will this neighbour hold?

    And what for, will the Reaper ask,
    when I am grey, and old?

    Vanity ........

    I am the brightest shining light
    The one who holds the world in right
    encompassing your vision stealing from U all sight
    Such is my visage an delightful might
    As I am this Adonis of such vagrant delight
    Kneel before me an bask in my glowing light....

    I have a colleague who is lovely, known her for over 9 years now. She's been going through hell lately and even though I don't know what this particular new issue is about, I have an inkling it has to do with some serious shizzle that went down with one of her kids and her ex husband. She is dealing, ongoing, with it all and is writing reports, plus bringing up her 3 kids on her own. I don't know how she does it!!! So I wrote this for her. I hope it helped somewhat.

    Sometimes it rains, to clear the air,
    to empty clouds that linger there.
    To bless the earth with sun and light
    upon the morn of darkest night.
    From ashen embers comes a dawn,
    the waters calmed, after the storm.
    Remember strength is cradled tight.
    within the throes, the foes we fight.
    And raining down, from clouds above,
    you see your strength in those you love.
    The flitting moments, pure and true,
    the love and hope was birthed by you.

    I have 2 days left with my kids for this year and the parents organised a lovely book of messages from each child in my class! One boy wrote me a poem. I am overwhelmed by this! Such a touching gift, never had a 7 year old write me one, he obviously knows how passionate I am about poetry.... This is how it went:

    ms kyle, ms kyle
    is always so much fun
    she has a friendiy smile
    and Azi is her son

    ms kyle loves her art
    and her year 1 kids
    with a great big heart
    1K, ms kyle they'll
    surely miss!

    (complete with spelling/punctuation errors). I love it so much!!! Very Happy

    A sunset is forming, over the lands.
    The stars are alight, they plot hidden plans.
    What's left of the day, I cling to my chest,
    And hope against hope, for the best.

    Too overwhelmed by the end of the day.
    Fighting the debt, that's now left to pay.
    The colours are murals, ephemerally etched.
    The pinch of what's sought, but so seldom fetched.

    To revel in colour, the beauty that's passed,
    Is a delicate task, even though it won't last.
    Remember the sunset, its hews are all born.
    Take solace in life, the inevitable dawn...
