Trying something new

Trying something new , If you think you see something or someone you recognise
It is purely coincidental.

I met a romantic queen
and made love to her in a dream 
Her mum said Put him down 
Drive him out of town 
You've no idea where he's been 

I have a friend named A.D.
I adore all of her poetry
Her writing puts me to shame
but when she mentions my name
I feel like she's flirting with me.

A beautiful lady named Nette 
Said she wouldn't be kissed for a bet 
but a gentleman I aint
If I kissed her she'd faint
and she'd be forever in my debt.

Our very good friend Tim
Swore a beautiful woman was stalking him
but since he's been missing 
He's discovered French kissing
Now our chances of finding him are slim.

I know a young lady named SKAT
When she makes love, She purrs like a cat
She is such a cute kitten 
I admit I am smitten
and I wouldn't mind hearing that.

We have a beautiful friend named F.J.
I asked what she knew about kissing one day
I could tell from her wink
She knows more than we think
and a lot more than she's willing to say.

I'll work on it

He arrived wearing pink skinny jeans They were scruffy and ripped at the seams He looked like a wiener I will not be meaner But he’s sure not the man of my dreams 2/07/18 A square peg into a round slot A dreamy man he sure is not Gawd he's wearing pink Give me one more drink Maybe after he'll be hot-to-trot WRITTEN BY TIM SMITH I couldn't wait to go on my first blind date Maybe we would hit it off, it could just be fate He was not my dream guy And he didn't wear a tie His jeans was tight and his name was Nate WRITTEN BY ALEXIS Y He danced like a loon in the lights Hell, it was one of those nights I wished I had dreamed But sadly he seemed Like a head-banging ostrich in tights WRITTEN BY JONATHAN FRENCH Too bad he was no Russel Crowe When in tights, he makes the dames glow! His toned thighs show good, Dressed as Robin Hood, In skinny jeans, gal's eyes, stay glued so WRITTEN BY TAAI TEKAI But those tight pink jeans done him no good And had a terrible effect on his manhood His bulge didn't show Girls don't want to know He solved it with a large piece of wood. (Inspired by Taai's poem) I asked him why he wore pink He said well it makes the girls blink I wear em' tight by choice Cos it squeakens my voice I'm not your average hunk,don't you think In the restaurant on the chair he did sit His pink jeans were too tight and they split His face it went red He wished he was dead And needed his napkin to cover his man bit. WRITTEN BY TOM CUNNINGHAM My blind date just loves to wear tights and wears them all daytime and nights they cling to his thighs and its no surprise his falsetto singing delights He impersonates the Bee Gees And sings with such expertise His real name is Larry But calls himself Barry Oh Larry is such a great tease INSPIRED BY TOM CUNNINGHAM - WRITTEN BY JAN In tight pink jeans he thought he looked divine He spun around and said, "Damn, I look fine!" I was jealous as could be Because I could plainly see His butt looked better in tight jeans than mine!!! WRITTEN BY LIN LANE My date lacked in looks and in class, Second date? I was ready to pass, But, the meal halfway through, He came back from the loo, With my sweet face tattooed on his.elbow! WRITTEN BY NINA PARMENTER My blind date from nineteen sixty-nine To this very day, she's still totally blind. To this day she thinks I'm a girl, to this day she's still my pearl Truth, I now think she knows, how kind. A blind date of mine wore jeans. Not one stitch in any seams I have got to confess, I was in a right mess, This wasn't one of those dreams WRITTEN BY MICK TALBOT IF YOU WANT TO JOIN IN THE FUN THEN PLEASE SOUP MAIL ME OR LEAVE YOUR LIMERICK AND I'LL COPY IT FROM YOUR COMMENT

"Toronto Classic"

For: Scavenger Hunt
In Honor of: ~Constance~Rambling Poet

Rambling around in a traffic jam,
Poetess naked and on the lam.
  Constance’s very neat trick,
  Behind a thin chopstick,
In the buff, dreaming a bluff, dream scam!!

Though diligently she did try,
`T was a failure to dignify,
   By her most classic stance,
   For without any pants,
Did lose her chance she had to buy!!

Note: From Constance's Poem "Traffic Jam"

Nigeria of My Dream

A place that gives wings to my dreams
And hushes my fears, worries and screams
Where I’d develop stronger wings to fly
Rising so higher, touching the blue sky
That I dream and pray it ends not as dream

My Debut at Cricket

Sir Leonard Hutton famous for cricket
Idolized him yet we played in the snicket
His bat willow three springs and all
Ours a joke no umpire to call
Yet did dream of 'Lords' having took a wicket.

Cupid: PS Mary

Oh Cupid! You still looking?  It’s me...
Where’s my dream man? You know...muscled he.
And some brains would be nice,
otherwise, no lice,
fumigating has caused allergy.

That stupid pig was NOT company.
He just grunted and rooted, you see.
Take that thing you call bow
and bring my man in tow.
Oh Cupid, where’s the love pin for me?

The lawn regrew from your fiery blaze.
I forgive you, the alcohol raze...
Ev’ry year, I’m older,
so Cupid, I’m bolder!
Justifiable, menopause phase!

Color Crazy

We dream of a fling with a blonde
With red heads and brunettes we'd abscond
Yes--carried away!
But if her locks be gray
Our minds with hair dye can be conned

Dawn the Stalker, part 3

She devoted her time to poetry and blogs
Addressing his many nonexistent flaws
As if his was the family, being neglected
While she refused to address his rejection
And became something too sad to even mock

You see, Dawn had succumbed to her invective
Unmedicated and overprotective
But of all the wrong things -
The lies about herself she struggled to maintain
And an impossible dream objective

And so, Dawn rots away
Her own twisted mind's slave
Spending time on a man who will never love her
Of whose affections, she is quite sure
While the ones who do care about her are estranged

She thinks only of herself
And ignores her child's wails
Mocks her husband's needs
She is the epitome of greed
And of failing mental health

Her words against him are an inner reflection
Of the emptiness that has become her own life's direction
She gets more repulsive as she pines away
And her husband is tempted to stray
But she thinks he is a fool to her deception

And most of us caught in her narrative live on
While she babbles like a moron
Taking her hate and lies wherever she can
To try and further convict an innocent man
Oh, what a sad old witch, that Dawn!

Some thoughts come in code

When unsurpassed greed's uncontrolled
King Midas' story be told!
The steps to his stash
Cast his daughter for cash
She's an allegory of gold

Author's note: I had a vivid dream a few nights ago Part of it included a feeling that I needed to check my personal stash of valuables I thought the items were locked in the basement However, when I came to the door to the staircase leading down expecting it to be locked, it was ajar I opened it all the way, and there was a child coming up the steps We looked at each other, and the child tumbled down the stairs and appeared dead It was a terrible feeling The poem above is one interpretation of what I might have been trying to tell myself There are other interpretations as well However, I am left with the idea that our society's focus on the material is destroying our love for each other and our families This is a huge problem for me and has taken a lot of my thought time over the past few days Meanwhile, I tell myself to enjoy each day, and I try.

The Pool Player

A pool player taking a snooze
Had a dream that his match he would lose.
	Since his bladder would squeeze
	He was minding his pees
But he should have been minding his cues!

Why are you being so greedy? You should share Eric with friends who are needy You can't stake a claim On the heat of his flame Eric's hot and we all want a share of that sweetie.

God Awakens

When we look outside 
we can see many things
 Money ,material,luxury,
 fashion,people, celebrities
 We dream about what we see
 We try to get the things we see 
There will be competition and envious 
to get the things and we aim high
 and we forget about who we are.
 When we look inside we just see
 the opposite of what we see outside.
 When we look into ourselves it is easy to find 
who we are and what is our purpose of our life.
 When we look inside we see the good and bad things,
 right and wrong things clearly and able to distinguish.
 We are in peace and love when we look inside,
 when we look outside we do not have the time,.
 because we are rushing to get the external things
 When we are really awaken we try to look inside,   
and lead a healthy peaceful  and happy life.

A Royal Dream

I dreamt I was a princess fair,
With beautiful long blonde hair;
But when the alarm clock rang,
Out of bed I sprang
And my dream disappeared in thin air.

Husbands Are in Heaven Whose Wives Scold Not

All night I dream of life without wife,
Peaceful and heavenly, without any strife
No scolding, no nagging,
Like ‘sake’ I’m having.
Alas! Its morning and gone my life.

Limerick: Once a President of Bolivia

Limerick : Once a President of Bolivia

Once a President of Bolivia
Frothed oblanceolate green saliva
Must dream was Ashoka*
On Andes throne Inca
That’s how COCA-cola drug India.

*ASHOKA, bcirca 304 BCE (reigned: 273-232 BCE): King of Magadha,
was the first great commoner Buddhist Emperor
of India which, then, extended from Afghanistan 
to Bengal, and from Nepal to Southern Deccan.
Among his recorded edicts : concern for the peoples’
welfare ; medical attention for the needy ; arboured
thoroughfares ; nomination of officers to oversee
morality and magistrates ; forbade the slaughter of
animals for food or for religious purposes ; required
the reconciliation of all religious tendencies ; wanted
everyone to practice compassion and charity towards
one another and to follow the laws of the Dharma or
Righteousness ; and drew attention to the vanity of
glory and emphasised the supreme aim of Life itself

Times Running Out

The days seem so much closer together now , It is hard to keep upMonths click by me like weeks Is this my time running out.
 I seem to lose things more often then I remember annd sometimes I need help Am I going to forget it all before my time runs out.
So many more soreness it seems and I am sleeping alot Will I sleep my days away? 
My dreams are confusing to me , I sometimes am not sure what is dream and what is real It wont matter cause my time has run out.
It's a wonderful thing this life we have , But it is much better when your time runs outThat' what this life's aboutFlow with time and dont worry about time running out

Blonde Ambition

I once had a dream of a girl that sang pop
She was only 16 dressed like a slut, so we called her prosti-tot
She went crazy and spiraled down,
Did a music video with a depressing clown
And as for the singer, Thank God!  her career finally stopped

The Little Girl :Between Nightmares And Dreams

Everyday she walks  more than a mile,
Through the woods to live her dream for a while.
With friends, to enjoy, to play,
After school, longer her stay.
When she starts towards home, she loses her smile.

She walks on a path she has always known,
Still it seemed a nightmare, all alone.
Though Scared of what would befall,
Went on ahead,after all
She clutched in her hand , a sacred stone.

Clouded skies,everything seems a blur,
But beyond the field is a light, no err.
An end to tonight's worries,
To dream on mom's lap, hurries
Who is at the window, waiting for her.

Dream Lover

Like it or not it is the best place to be in the MORNING.

The mimosa; often where I did meet MOURINE.

Pretty thing, she caught me with her charm as she danced the "HOLA"

In a trance, her cold lips whispered in my ear "DARLING"

Gosh 'twas just a dream stolen by the vapid noise of the STARLING.

Faith --- Answer Me

I gaze at the approaching thunderstorm
and inhale the earthly scent of rainstorm
Her tears
as spears
is like a million blows on human fears

I ponder awhile beneath the lit-up sky
then words start rolling & a prayer is sent up high
I wish for peace
for all fighting to cease
and then the sky beckons with shades of cerise 

I loose the heart and soul on mankind
it's easy to lose faith without God's sign
When lost
we toss
the beauty of his creation for lust and greed

Then I witness the miracles of life stories
coincidences that appear and save lives
His wisdom
for our kingdom
is unfathomable for our limited visions

If only we can soar with his visions
Like an eagle on a wind's rhythm!

A mirror response to Mystic Rose's poem below:

I watch the splendor of a shooting star 
and breathe the beauty of a hum-guitar   
Her light 
in flight 
is like a million lanterns on a cooling night

I dream awhile beneath the tarp of heaven 
then close my eyes & slowly count to seven 
I wish in true 
for souls renew 
and soon I’m covered in night’s dew 

I loose the mind and pry his realm  
it`s an expedience of God’s mystic dream    
When free 
I see 
the beauty of his creation for all eternity 

I watch the splendor of a bird in flight  
and breathe the beauty of a blessed night 
His wings 
they sing 
to me of freedom, and all a night can bring;

If only we can learn to sing
Like a Cardinal on a string!

Finding Jacqueline

From my window, I saw spring flowers
Kissed by morning's radiance
You were my cloud of joy
Touching me with your charm
You awakened me from dream to thee
Love was in the air when I looked up
A moment of clarity sparkled
Love's rebirth arrived with you, my love
You illuminated the chambers of my heart
You, like kaleidoscopic pastels
Of spring flowers graced my space
In visions, with your loveliness, capturing me

I was in transit
Yet, sifting through pages of time
Again you emerged; as I unearth my symbol of love
Letters and numbers were blessings in disguise
A printed flower called Jacqueline, graced sheets of white
Your voice became a sweet soothing sound to my soul
I sat in awe, poised with pen on sheets of white
There you were, as pure as precious luck
Or is it, we should stay in touch?

His Trip To The Moon limerick

There once was a boy we called chase-face
he dreamed of reaching outer space.
With this dream in his heart
our family will part
and this boy we never could replace.

We all dreaded that day late in June
when we knew he would fly to the moon.
So a party we had
even though we were sad
as the countdown was scheduled for noon.

Chase couldn't get rid of the grin
or the drool that was right on his chin.
He was laughing so loud 
while we stood watching proud.
His journey would finally begin.

The trip was a total success.
Of course, we expected no less.
We've done all we can.
He now is a man
and all that he sees he will bless

Everyone thinks since i smile
that everything is good
no one knows its been a while
since i last had good food

I live in a good neighborhood
My neighbors, all quite wealthy
just snacking when i could
and trying to stay healthy

everytime you go to school
your stomach starts to rumble
always looking like a fool
when you trip and stumble.

i know what its like to feel sick
the fuzz that passes through your brain
people acting like a prick
not knowing your in pain.

i go to school like normal
i tell no one of my issues
no need to make it formal
i just grab a few more tissues.

you may not even notice me
im just your everyday dumb teen
you cant see what i see
or know where i have been.

i go to school each day
and go to work each night
working for my pay
so i can grab another bite.

we go to homeless dinners
and i feel my heart clench tight
not feeling like the winner
should i really have to fight?

so now i lay my head
and dream of a full tummy
and as i lay in bed
i dream of yummy yummies.

Opportunity for Unity

Opportunity for Unity

What we saw after so much scrutiny;
Minds must not meddle with mutiny;
Racial bias no more,
Or try to even score;
Seek a perfect opportunity for unity.

James Serious Mysterious Horn
Retired Veteran and Poet
Bolivia, NC

Trump was ambiguous and avoiding
and putting off making decisions last
night as usualHe must come to the
conclusion that he has to face facts
and be realistic and remove himself 
from the Trump dream worldHe does
dislike teleprompter and is like a child
rebelling against his parentsMission
and goals must equal each other.
Afghanistan is a war of attrition not
designed for victory but Trump
said that we would be victorious.

The Page

That stunningly beautiful day
(though through smog, the light really was grey)
In the mythic town
Where you live like a clown
In my hand the page finally lay

It was my dream for more than eight years
And down my face streamed muting tears
Vindication at last
But the outside seems vast
Paper's too thin to quash all my fears

Yet on this bright day in may
I ignore the words no one will say
My work's finally done
It is time to have fun
And for my home I will always pray

MLK's Way

You see I say things in segments 
or incramentsThe word usage
that rhymes and makes sense it's

I still remain a participant to an
extent of the Black focus even though
many think that we remain hopeless

Human beings make a scene to try
to define me, but I remain unseen
like the sixth man on an Indina Pacer
team, but I hope one day that this will
all just be a dream

I caught up to my pedestal to adopt
the hard rocked hip-hop, jumped to 
the top of the game like a juggernaut 
so maybe I better stop

The real lyricist slash spiritualist 
transferred his heart with a dart by 
his cleverness

I pray one day that my philosophy has 
gotta be the truth within the making 
rather than a dream to become a reality,
but the black experience needs more 
camaraderie, because right now we are 
stereotyped as a mockery

I sense a pain far more worse than a 
mental illness, so low that a solo artist 
couldn’t fulfill this

Subside from the anger building deep 
within the introverted stranger

Yeah, I’m making blatant statements to 
save us from hating the fact that the 
righteous suffer, ain’t it complacent?

Splish Splash

My love and I shared a bath
Inevitably we thrashed
Our bodies so lathered
Lovable bubbles now gathered
Sensuous moments amidst all the splash

Then came our moments to dry
Towels in wandering apply
Touching, caressing
Sharing our blessings
Our love you could never deny

So then came our moments for bed
Face to face on our pillows were said
Sweet nothings we shared
For under the covers we're bared
Close your eyes, and dream what you've read

Vampire's Kiss

Beyond vision, I see only her
an unsated, demanding hunger
the soulful dream each night
as I wish with all might
to bear love’s pain a little longer.

To ease the ache of physical need
it is the simplest of things, indeed
but to ease the hollow
my heart cannot swallow
I’ve often tried but cannot succeed.

I seek solace in an empty glass
as my heart burns for my lovely lass
my thoughts drift away then
I wonder how and when
love became such a pain in the… neck

I once had a dream that I was a mummy
Don't ask me why But it wasn't funny
  I was scared out my mind
  Where is this place and this time
When I woke up I felt like a dummy

Dear Miss Dream Girl

Dear Miss Dream Girl, you seem so damn real A vision of perfection with real sexual appeal I reach out to touch you But my hand goes right through If only, if only, but it all seems so surreal © Jack Ellison 2016

dreamin again

If I were to slit my wrist
Your life would be gone 
You see, i can't be your dream

Im more than halfway dead
Your dream is a lie,
Until that last slit across
My vein will draw the 
Blood of hopelessness.
Your rose pricked my tears
And cold night dreams,
Rests ever so softly on my coffin
Still as your lying dream.

only half a Memorial Day 2017

Politicians laud praise and beam
About our heroes’ gift extreme
Oh-so-young they died!! 
But the dream they’ve denied
Is no more war as this day's theme    

Author's Note: I heard a lot of homage, but nothing that makes me believe that the significance of the sacrifice is understood by our leaders and many former soldiers who were interviewed There is little hope for us if we haven't learned by now.

Soggy Cigarettes

Had a dream last night, you could say it was wet Fell headlong in a pool while playing the clarinet Kept playing underwater Received much applausers Got out, and in my pocket was some soggy cigarettes © Jack Ellison 2015

                                          There once was a girl named Kim
                                      Whose choices for marriage were slim
                                          But then she met her dream man
                                              And became Kim Merryman
                                       Then lived happily ever after with him.

Meeting this Girl

This girl I've met so lively and sweet
She looked at my eyes and made me sweat
All night I dream of her,
this burden - that I bear
makes me mad that pushed me to eating

If you loved me
I would be born in your glance
My soul would grow in your kisses
My heart would be awaken by your sweet voice like new dawn

If you loved me
I would have million reason to wake up each morning
My life would have thousands reasons to go on
I would renounce everything without regarding
I would be your wonder woman, always fighting your battles and never leave your side

If you loved me
I would die for you
I would lie for you
I would kill for you

If you loved me
Money, fortune, fame would mean nothing
you will be my everything

If you loved me
The impossible would be possible
The dream would become reality
I would stop time and give you eternal love

If you loved me
I would make you feel
Like you are in heaven
Show you, that I am worthy of you
That I'm your  Cinderella and your are my prince

If you loved me
no pressure, no demand
only a partnership, my love
