    Rhoody, that's inspiring!

    You love the sea and this poem is about it.

    This is a simple one for your little kids (if they're not grown up yet).



    Fish in a Cubic Sea


    I have lived life here
    In a makeshift water
    Imprisoned but free
    Inside this clear cubic sea

    Tanked but tendered
    Beloved, taken cared
    Helpless but protected
    Admired, appreciated

    I have watched in horror
    Of my species died with honor
    In a festive seafood party
    Lying dead in a banquet display

    Dead but here each day
    Years, millions, my species stay
    Here as we’re ought to be
    For as long as you take care our sea

    Friends

    Don't walk in front of me,
    I may not follow
    Don't walk behind me,
    I may not lead
    Walk beside me; and just be my friend.

    Many people will walk in and out of your life,
    but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.

    Senior Moments

    Yes indeed.

    Going towards sixty plus....
    Sometimes memory is not a plus
    You thought your action is under control
    But comes a time you don't follow the rule.

    Going through menopause....
    Put your lifestyle at times on pause
    To dread hot flashes and cold chills
    Nothing you can do but "just deal!"

    Insignificant other sometimes wonder and ask
    "what's wrong with you dear?"
    "Let Me Be" I say, ....because tomorrow is another day.

    Smile

    Do you ever smile at people you don't know?
    I bet you do
    And I'm glad you do
    Smile can bring joy to everyone
    Smiling without guile
    Could be infectious
    It could be fictitious.
    Once you start to smile
    You will be smiling your way.
    Smile at people no matter who they are
    No matter what their colors are
    It would make their day
    And it gives you pleasure in return
    Smile can bring success in life
    To a business entrepreneur
    Smile is the essence of all
    So head up and face the world with a smile. :smile:

    Swany... It is inspiring and i don't regret why i always wanted to wear it each day.

    I share with that thoughts and here is the one of its kind.



    Tears and Smiles

    There are tears in every eye
    So as smile in every lip

    . . . that when tears are shed by
    The world on your shoulder lies
    If there is pain
    Take it,
    Learn from it,
    and never get an once of regret

    . . . that when smile is on your lips
    Show it
    and feel great,
    as if the world rests beneath your feet

    Be merry, and count every joy
    For it is time to be happy
    After which
    There are tears in every eye
    So as smile in every lip

    And tears and smiles
    And smiles and tears…



    keep it coming...

    Make a difference

    Poetry is what comes from the heart it does not have to rhyme
    It can be fun sad romantic etc etc.
    heres some words from the mag " Word for Today"
    Don't keep score
    Clothe yourself with tender hearted mercy,kindness,humility,gentleness and patience.
    Make allowance for each other's faults and forgive anyone who offends you
    Because you weren't built to carry the stress that goes with resentment.

    I think a few people on the forum would benefit from these wise words
    many Blessings to all our members....john :smile:

    I agree with you john boy.

    Poems that rhyme are old school poems. But it is still a poem.
    The free verse poetry is the modern poetry. Swany, kyliegriffin, you are on the spotlight for this. Take me as a variation of it… Children like poetry that rhymes and simple. It will inspire them. Poetry of your level are for the highly intellectual people.

    I have one that doesn’t rhyme much. I hope this is a poem already…

    Thanks for the comment.


    Boulevard Afar

    The sea meets the desert
    Sewed peripheries
    With engineering might
    Spewed incantation
    Shooting charm
    To enslave admiration
    But to where I’m standin’ on
    This familiar shore
    Keeps rushing me home

    Hi Boom'E'rang, thanks for comment. Yes, I want to get addicted to this kind of stuff 'SMILE". I think it's great to always wear your smile, even during your trials and tribulation. Just like the song "Smile'' by Nat King Cole. First line of the lyric is "Smile though your heart is aching". "Smile even though its breaking"... This is an old song and very inspiring. I just love it.

    Hey, Boom 'E' rang, you are a great poetry writer! Why don't you post your poetry in POETRY.COM? That's where I posted mine. Although I've heard a lot of bad things about this site, but i don't mind because it's free. Hope you'll try and visit this site someday :smile:

    Keep yours coming, too ...

    John Boy, of course this is a poem. It doesn't have to rhyme and we all agree. It's a nice one john boy.
