Dappled Absurd

It follows me each morning born
Then runs ahead till it is shorn.
Disappears the time of noon
Sprints ahead to meet the moon

It starts the day the smallest small
And grows into the tallest tall
Although it cannot speak a word
It motions me until itís heard.

It has no substance you can touch
Itís just a see thought gray as such.
But when Iím sad with what I do
Itís always there a second you.

It pictures me and makes me laugh
Simply with itís choreograph
Exaggerates my every move
Till there is nothing more to prove

Pure nonsense is these dappled words
But it is fun to be absurd.

Oh the smiles you leave 'pon my face
a bit of morning's poetic embrace
for my poems are but your absurd
still, I treasure every word...

Good great Sunday Morning, Sy...

============================


What some say will seem absurd ...
Another says 'tis the sweetest ever heard
Like the soprano song of morn's first bird ...
Each day, a little miracle occurred

For me, rhyme and verse are preferred ...
never deterred ... I hang on your every word.



*winkieiwinkie*
nothing you say is absurd me sweet Stinky


When man is lead to arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations
When mans concern narrows, poetry reminds him the diversity of existence

I enjoy a little absurdity, especially on Sunday mornings. Thanks for the wake up call.
Enjoy what remains of your weekend. Monday the real absurdity begins.

Dear Tink,
You are a column of my ivy tower.
And certainly alot of the power.
You are the wind under my wings
And many other magic things.
I think it no accident we met
And have many meeting still and yet
I feel remorse an aching loss
I'm jealous of my mind of course.
And so is Randy. Winkiewinkie Stinky.


Bags123,
Glad you enjoyed and your right about Monday

Serenity,
And to you, thank you dear.

Seymour my dearest friend This is incredible writing, again you manage to spin words into threads of light that refract and dance in delicate hues of sunshine within. Your writing shines as no other does.

And what a brilliant jewel this is, utterly utterly perfect the rhythm in this is utterly divine, I love it when you write like this. Truly exquisite, the smile I have is big and golden

I love your absurd play on theme
The twist and spiral of poet dream
No other writer can do this
Spin wordy magic in poetís bliss
You write the words that speak to me
That fills me with poetís fantasy
Like Alice in her wonderland
Iím held captive by your poetís hand

Your writing spins threads of delight
That sends me spiralling into night
A touch of your pen and Iím bound
Without so much as a single sound
You breathe your poet breath on me
And Iím gone where thereís a mystery
Until the day that you donít write
Iíll be caught in your poetic light

Did you miss me yesterday? Mmmm like a hole in the head, well I missed you, truly I did


Love and warm stuff
As always
Mushy

Breathe through the heat of our desire
Thy coolness and they balm
Let sense be dumb let flesh retire
Speak through the eathquake wind and fire
Oh

Oh this is so very excellent, Sy...
I have been trying to write a poem about my shadow for a couple of weeks now...and I just can't seem to get it right...
but you have hit the nail right on the head with this one...
I love your descriptions

It has no substance you can touch
Itís just a see thought gray as such.
But when Iím sad with what I do
Itís always there a second you

Oh how I wish I had written this....
You are a genius, Sy...

I was just missing your dappled words Sy, and hope you are busy riding your dragon.
