Alphabet Poetry Series: “N is for Neptune”

Would that I could live under the sea
I would take you with me
Maybe there, the world is much calmer
Less noise, more clarity

Atlantis might be my one true home
And Neptune will I be
To command water, wind, and weather
To be in harmony

My kingdom will be more vast than land
And prettier, you’ll see
I’ll prepare it all for you, my love,
Queen, for eternity.

Alphabet Poetry Series: “J is for Jailbird”

Laughter fills this place
little feet running
to and fro
screams of delight
lullabies
impromptu dancing
in the living room
vrrroooming cars
giggles over silliness
read alouds
piano practice
laughter fills this place
jailbird
but I am just a jailbird
looking past
vertical shadows
of chains
I fly but
crash my wings
I can only listen
as I perch
on the swing
on the beam
on the water bowl
and look forward
to someday
I can leave
for the skies.

Alphabet Poetry Series: “I is for Inspire”

{This poem is also “inspired” by today’s prompt on dVerse: “on the other hand.”}

people look for leaders
even unintentionally
and some leaders lead
with a heavy hand
and some laissez-faire
and no one stops
to think about
where these leaders
get their ideas

or maybe they know
that’s why they follow

It’s from the Good Book
you see
though it’s a matter
of interpretation
who’s really the
authority

There is a leader
inspired by the Holy Spirit
and leads his flock
on a humble path
on faith
on hope
on love

on the other hand

There is a leader
inspired by his god
and leads his pack
on a prideful path
on mistrust
on despair
on hate

so sad
some people don’t see
the other side
inspire

Fireworks

I wait for my turn…
as I hear my brothers shout before me
to proclaim a new beginning
to light a new way
When my turn comes
I will burst forth from these walls
I will scream the loudest of all
and everyone will love me the most
They will ooh and ahh
and clap for me
I will be in pictures and forevermore
My blast will be felt by the smallest child
And I will make everyone happy
I am a firework
It is my turn…
