    Me
    You
    As one
    Not as two
    United in love
    Forever and ever, amen

  2. April 25 Shadorma

    Jump

    Frozen still
    Glaring at new prey
    Flinching tail
    Claws digging
    Prey unaware what’s to come
    From statue, it jumps

  3. April 26 Dodoitsu

    Zombie-like faces file by
    Brainless souls under control
    No need to think anymore
    They will think for us

  4. April 27 Englyn

    Bad feelings on the rise are taking hold
    No time for thinking wise
    As clouds of hate fill the skies
    Godless selfishness fill their eyes

  5. April 28 Free Verse

    Even Though

    Though he lived in a world of selfishness
    Never caring for those bearing his DNA
    No visits
    No calls
    No support
    Not even a birthday or Christmas present
    If he loved me
    He never told me
    Though it’s possible I blocked it out
    I remember so little about him
    ‘Cept that he died so young
    And so alone
    I never had a chance to know him
    And he me
    I wish I would have had
    One last chance to tell him
    Thanks for being my dad
    Even though

    Cobalt sky above
    Emerald waters lap sand
    Loving on the coast

  7. April 30 Epitaph

    Here Lies April

    Here lies April in the past
    Thirty days sure went by fast
    Thirty poems written in haste
    Day by day, no time to waste
    Life caught up and writing slowed
    One day late I paid what’s owed
    April quickly came and went
    Last poems in on May 1st sent
    Many lines I won’t remember
    Now I can’t wait for November

    Thanks, Walt, for the opportunity to learn so many new forms and revisit others. I’d be up for doing this again in the fall. That, or whatever your never-resting mind conjures up.

    • Thanks Earl! Great job with the forms and some very inspired writing. Thanks for keeping the site functional while I had the chance to go off and play poet! We’ll be back at it starting tomorrow!
