Here I Go Again

I keep thinking I’m going to run out of words to put down on paper but the prompts keep coming so I keep writing more poems. Nowadays I find myself writing more free style poems both. Freestyle poems are those poems which have no set rhyming pattern. They just flow.

I like writing these poems for two reasons. The first is it frees up your kind to be creative because your not always trying to find just the right words. The second, well it is a.most like the first. They are just fun to write. I hope you enjoy this latest batch of poems. One last thing. Get out and enjoy the summer because before you know it, summer will be over.

Summer is a magical time of the year. School is out, the air is warm and everyone just wants to have fun. This poem is dedicated to summer.

Here Comes Summer

Here comes summer

Here comes summer

A time for sun and sea

Here comes summer

Here comes summer

A time for flowers and bees

Here comes summer

Here comes summer

A times to feel so carefree

Here comes summer

Here comes summer

Enjoy it now, before it flees

Happy goes out to all those who during theses past months have found themselves feeling depressed.

Happy

Oh to be happy again

Wear a sincere smile

I’ve forgotten how

It’s gone out of style

It seems so, so long

Since a true joy

Has filled my heart

I wanna laugh again

But how do I start

I’ve worn a sad face

For way too long

But I wanna sing

A brand new song

Put some bounce

Back in my walk

Show a true joy

When I talk the talk

So Lord lift me

Outta this deep hole

Fill my heart with love

Restore my weary soul

Oh to be happy again

Wear a sincere smile

Walk in a my new shoes

Mile after mile after mile

A local winery

A local winery

A poem born out of the idea to show someone you love then can be more important than just telling them.

I Love You

I love you

Is not the only

Three words

We can say

To express

Our love for someone

Each and every day

I love you

Can be said

Many different ways


Sometimes it sounds like

Be safe

I made this for you

Is there anything else

You need me to do?

Did you eat?

Call us when you get home

How are you doing?

You’re never alone


I love you

Is not the only

Three words

We can say

To express

Our love for someone

Each and every day

A poem for all those who have someone who think it is your mission to fix their life problems.

Contrary

Contrary

To what you believe

I am not required

To fix your every need

To provide you with

Unending support

I’d like to say I’m sorry

For the following retort

But

It is time for you to

Get up, get out

Make your own way

Walk yourself all about

So

Contrary

To what you believe

You are hereby required

To work on your every need

But I’ll still be there

To provide you with support

And help you cause I care

The Stone Pony, where Bruce Springsteen once played.

The Stone Pony, where Bruce Springsteen once played.

Dedicated to all of us who love pizza.

Pizza

I don’t eat pizza

Any more

You might be

Wondering

Why

What for

Because pizza

By the slice

Would be nice

But

Pizza by the pie

I can’t stop eating

I don’t why

A tongue in cheek poem, kind of dedicated, to all the people who are really working hard from home.

Lazy

I’m not a lazy man

As some people say

I just like doing things

Different in my day


Instead of working

The dreaded 9 to 5

I like to spend my days

Leisurely spending time


My days usually start

When I feel it’s time to roll

From the comfort of bed

To take a walk down the hall


Where I eat my breakfast

With a large cup of Joe

Then I sit down at my desk

Where my computer’s aglow


I do a couple hours of work

Then I’m done for the day

I know it’s not a rough life

But it’s my life just the same


So you see


I’m not a lazy man

As some people say

I just like doing things

Different in my day

Hey, was born out of someone saying “Hey, can you help me?” It is a form of poetry called Lupus teleform. It is where you take a (mythical) phone number and use it to create a poem.

Hey

I usually don’t answer

To “hey”

My mom gave me a name

Chosen from many

Outta love

A name I use each day of my life

A name

I like to be called by

So, please don’t call me “hey

Magic happens all around you. All you have to do is look. This poem is dedicated to the idea of looking for the magic in life.

Magic

I’ve never seen a fairy fly

I’ve never met a grumpy troll

I’ve never ridden a unicorn

I’ve never touched leprechaun’s gold

I’ve never heard a angels song

I’ve never conversed with an elf

All the magic I’ve ever known

Is found in the joys of life itself
