Okay, I figured we could hold a little competition every month. So everyone who wants to participate, please post your poetry here. By the way, we need a judge that doesn't want to enter this month, since I plan on entering.

Love Forever? by Aly

When you said you’d love me forever,
Did you mean what you said?
I lay down every night,
And let it wander in my head.

How can it be forever
since I know there will be an end?
How can we stay together
with so many bends?

As we walk down the road
You ask what is wrong
If only you knew
What was going on

You bring me to town square
Romantic and bright
Kneel down on one knee
And I can now see your fright

You take my hand
So I can’t move for whatever
And then you ask me
Will you be with me forever?

So it has to be original? Or can it be something we already posted on goodreads?

I Have a Friend....

I have a friend
who is an angel
her wings and halo visible only to my eyes

I have a friend
who is a superhero
her cape flying behind her
as she comes to my rescue

I have a friend
who is a fairy
sprinkling her magic dust on me
making everything all right again

I have a friend
who is brighter than the sun
making each room glow with her presence

I have a friend
who is my candle
lighting the path in hours of darkness

I have a friend
who is a rainbow
adding color to my life



I have a friend
who is simply the best
making me speechless by how amazing she is

I have a friend
who is better than any other
claiming a special place in my heart

Can I judge I'm not a real good poet. I would like to have another judge too please. Or instead we could do a poll.

I'm just doing one I've previously written. I've got writers block right now.

Natural Beauty

The birds are chirping
The wind is blowing
The rain is freezing
The sun is gone
The snow-capped mountains
Stand majestic and high
The moon lights the ground
Through a gap in the cloudy sky
The plants are dancing
The animals rejoycing
The music of nature
Making them wild
A happyness lies here
Where nature sits
Untouched by man
It lifts your spirit
Takes your worries in hand
It allows you to fly
It makes sure you know
Its a beutiful thing
Being alive

♫Krista♫ (kristabobista) um hmm, let me find a poem of mine then. . .


message 19: by ♫Krista♫ (last edited Jun 25, 2009 11:39AM) (new)

♫Krista♫ (kristabobista) found one!
MOON AND ME

Out by the lake is the moon and me.

The man in the moon is the brightest thing to see.

His smile is bright, its the greatest sight.

But as I take a sigh, he disappears into a sunlit sky.

The sun is the only thing to see.

But tonight it'll be the moon and me.

G'day Aly, I made it here & here is my entry about our Border Collie who died some time ago now of old age..

MY MATE

I remember I lost a good mate some time ago.
Was so damn hard to give the nod to let him go.
Brought him home to a spot I knew he would like.
Placing him in the ground was a wrenching sight.

Burning his name on a post, before it got to dark.
It will last a long time, this remembrance mark.
Remember, I sure will, the words that he heeded.
When it hurt inside, when discipline was needed.

The games we would play, oh! So much fun.
A walk down to the park, or a good long run.
Or when he wasn’t looking, I’d hide in tall grass.
Hearing him circling until he pounced, oh I would laugh.

Playing with an empty plastic bottle, and lasting for ages.
Until enough was had, he would lay while I read papers.
And on a balmy summer night always etched in my head.
Us, resting on the driveway, his head resting on my leg.

He’s memory in my heart, I will hold so close, so near.
As do my family, he was one of us and so dear.
He still is talked about today, and every now and then.
Someone will tell a story, at how he touched them.

I know I can’t write all the humorous times in his life.
The fun, the laughter, from myself, Daughters and Wife.
This is a tribute to him, the memories that won’t abate
This bloke that gave unconditional love, our four-legged mate.
