A sonnet poem

Uncategorized

Once a month at a local coffee shop, they open their doors to a poetry open mic session.  The prompt for July is write a poem of our favorite letter of the alphabet. This is my first attempt at an open mic for poetry.  Before I read my poem I thought I’d put it out in the blog-a-fear for comments and likes.  Here is my sonnet.

I am a letter, not just any letter

I am special, consonants and vowels I lead

Alphabet of twenty six is my need

Alone, I help the sentence sound better.

 

My friends b through z have personal names

Such as bravo, charley, delta, and more

It’s a gender thing, mighty to adore

Masculine names clarify, so they claim

 

I trust by now you know your a b c’s

It is easy to know, who leads the pack

All my clues leave you the best to believe

Take a guess or do you need to go back

I am destine to triumph and succeed

I am A, the ah, ey of the sound track

Signs for a disaster?

Are we over-crowded with signs?

It amazes me how drivers can drive safe with all the distraction of signs.   Within a 3 mile stretch of road my view is a colorful collage of objects.  Signs that want us to stop, yield, pedestrian crossing, deer crossing, children at play plus many more safety and precaution signs.  Don’t misunderstand me, I realize we need safety guidance.   Then there are the neon and bill-board signs that spell out the daily specials, storefront names, etc. These signs seem to intermingle with the safety and precaution signs.  Now we have the eye sore signs that pop-up like weeds along the side of the road to indicate who to vote for during an election period.  My eyes are weaving in and out of the signs like a drunk driver.

 I can’t forget the speed limit signs and traffic lights that I may overlook as I read the signs.

Keep safe and don’t text while driving, we have enough to read while driving.

Disaster

Daily Post Challenge; A Drop of Words

Drop

A drop could be a very small quantity of anything.  At the end of its fall, it will leave an impression.  What are those special words you may drop on someone to leave an impression?

Are you there to pick up that small quantity of liquid that drops from the face of a person in sorrow?  A drop of kind words is an impression that may bring comfort, joy, gratitude, and compassion.

After it is dropped look for that impression.
