~The Dragon Flies Lair II~
bentfeather | poets

Posted on 09/30/2003 5:27:59 PM PDT by snippy_about_it

My Dragon Fly and Me

If I could be a Dragon Fly and wing my way through the sky I would never be shy just me and my Dragon Fly!

By moonlight we ride the wind chase the comets tail for fun by day we would hide from the sun our fragile wings would come undone

On darkest nights we would use fireflies as our guides we would dip and we would glide through the heavens open wide and scatter diamonds in the night sky my Dragon Fly and I...

And we would wing past our lovers silent in the night... to kiss their face in our flight much to their surprise and delight my Dragon Fly and me in sight...

Such a view do we share away up here in the air of breezes soft through our hair my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

Good morning flurry!

Ohhh my goodness, I'm sorry about the thoughtless remark I made regarding the piece you wrote. I thought it was someone else's work that you had seen someplace and you were using it as an example.

So thoughtless of me. :-(

As you can tell by my work I am not a serious person. I wrote this, this morning.

Treason

The dems all hate her every move,
They’d like to see her dead.
On Free Republic everyday,
She’s on at least one thread.
Not freeping but the topic of,
Discussion by the masses.
Most freepers like her points of view,
Except a few dumbazzes.
Bill and Hill can’t stand her guts,
We all know they have reason.
They can’t stand Ann Coulter’s book,
Exposing them for TREASON.

I was sick when she elected by a few dopes.

Some one asked me if I could write greeting card poems this morning so I wrote these two.

Get Well Soon

I hope you’re feeling better now,
With all the cutting done.
Lying there in bed is tough,
I know it isn’t fun.
But now it’s done and you’ll get well,
And back to things that matter.
I’m glad the doctors fixed you up,
But what is a gall bladder.

Flurry 10/2/3


Cataracts

I’m glad you’re seeing better now,
But surgery seems silly.
I guess I’m just a simpleton,
A dummy, a hillbilly.
It seems to me if you can’t see,
The Cataract is nill.
I’d trade that gashogg in right now,
And get an Oldsmobile.

Vietnam Vet



IN THE 1960'S OUR COUNTRY CALLED
HER SONS AND DAUGHTERS ONE AND ALL.
TO A TINY COUNTRY ACROSS THE SEA
TO HELP THE PEOPLE BE FREE.
IN THE JUNGLE SO TALL AND GREEN,
TO FIGHT AN ENEMY OFTEN UNSEEN.
MOST EVERYONE SAW THEIR BUDDIES FALL
THEY DIED AS HEROES AND GAVE THEIR ALL.
WE GAVE OUR BLOOD, OUR SOULS,
MORE THAN ANYONE WILL EVER KNOW.
WE FOUGHT A WAR NOT ALLOWED TO WIN,
BUT IF ASKED TO WE WOULD DO IT AGAIN.
OUR GOVERNMENT SENT US TO THIS PLACE,
WE CAME BACK HOME THEIR WORST DISGRACE.
TO A TIME OF PROTEST IN OUR LAND,
BUT ALL WE DID WAS MAKE A STAND.
OUR COUNTRY SHUNNED US FROM HER GRACE,
HOW WILL WE EVER FIND OUR PLACE?
WE'VE TRIED AND TRIED, BUT WE HAVEN'T YET,
BUT WE WONT GIVE UP
CAUSE WE'RE JUST VIETNAM VETS.

STEVIE RAY CLINTON
RETIRED US ARMY SGT

I wrote this yesterday about a new birth for a freeper on WFTD.

Announcement

Welcome to the earth this day,
I know you’ll like it here.
Smile at mommy, poop on dad,
He’ll even think that’s dear.
At seven and three quarter pounds,
We know you are a keeper.
Your mom and dad will love you so,
Each day it will grow deeper.
So take good care and grow up strong,
Be real nice to your mother.
And if you’re really lucky, soon,
You’ll get a little brother.
So let us say we’re glad you’re here,
You picked a lovely day.
To join the Dupa Family,
Little Margaret Mae

Thank you SAM.

We'll never be able to right the wrongs done to our Vietnam Veterans. Sad. We can only thank them now and hope it isn't too little too late.

Bummer about the music, hope it's only temporary.

I'm glad I came to the thread. Good find. I was a Viet Nam Era Vet, (served stateside 72-76), I reserve the term Viet Nam Vet for those who went over there. But I experienced the public reaction to men in uniform firsthand. It was deplorable. I didn't have to add the trauma of real war to that. I wrote a poem about Viet Nam many years ago as a therapeutic excercise. I can not find it. I need to write a new one. It will be my next serious project. Believe it or not I do get serious on occasion.

i cannot rely on dreams
i must make my own reality

i cannot rely on others
i need to make my own decisions

i must strive to create my own happiness
within the window of fate designed for me

i can only direct my own actions
based not on other's responses to those actions

i may not get the response i desire
and therefore find disappointment

facing this reality can be difficult

it's easier to dream
of what might be based on what i imagine

i must be careful in this endeavor
to find my own road
my own place in this world

LOL. Hey, I think my romantic poetry was "deep".

I know what you mean though, I try not to get deep to often, too depressing.

Very nice poem

Thank you for the compliment.

When we woman
walk alone
it takes guts
to stroll solo
I have walked for
many years
with no warm hand
to hold nor no one
to dry my tears...

to find an inner strength
is sometimes so very hard
cold beds on winter's night
is almost absurd
there are no easy asnwers
but many roads to walk
and thousands of lonely strangers
willing to sit and talk
about their dreams gone astray
so common bonds unite
strangers in the night become
warm friends in broad day light

I wander through darkened corridors
Through halls of evernight
Walking as a whisper
Drifting past the darken'd light
With loneliness as my guide
I'm betrayed by the sunlight
A brief eternity to hear her voice
Bar your windows tight
I'd sell my soul to see her face
In my halls of evernight.

I sometimes (rarely) make two versions of one haiku.
I have an example you may enjoy. The first version
came to mind 'cause my brother used to play a game
called "Castlevania" in which you fight Dracula. There
is one particular line in the game that is quite
memorable, one of Dracula's wives attempts to attack
you while saying "Come to me , Harker, my love
& I shall taste your flesh." Version two was created to
be less... I'll say disturbing for lack of a better word.

(version 1)
You make me hungry.
I think I'll have dessert now,
let me taste your flesh.

(version 2)
You make me want you.
I've lost my self control now,
let me taste your lips.

Well, that was Bram Stoker's Dracula for the Sega CDX.
And if you used the attack that was recommended for 'Lucy', she ate you.
So when playing the game, I had to kick her to death.
Cripes Harker looked so ridiculous high kicking like a ballerina...
In The Super Nintendo version there was the bridge we couldn't cross, and in Castlevania we got our butts handed to us.
By a bunch of fluttering bats...

for SAMWolf

Share with us the stories
so we will never forget

of fears faced
of years erased

tears shed
and the smell of the dead

of justice sought
battles fought

and the cost
of lives lost

Tell us the stories

of lessons learned
valor earned

victories wrought
the price of freedom bought

of courage, honor and duty

and how some gave all
and All gave some
