Secret Hideaway – #poetry #FebruaryWriting #ValentinesDay


, , , , , , , , ,

We don’t need an elevator
To celebrate our love
Too many people
In between, try to
Push and shove
What we need
Is a little place
(Secret hideaway)
Where we can be
And every day

As citizens, we always have this choice

No matter the cause, we must defend

To your beliefs, pay tribute, have a voice

Be innovative, start a whole new trend!

The Fog ~ #poetry #spirits


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Mystery shrouds, in a misty dawn

Spirits converge, on clouded morn

Gathering, while the city sleeps

About the landscape, silently creep

As not to awaken the human race

Whose shadows linger in this place

For while they dream, of tomorrow

Others mourn, in unearthly sorrow

Until the fog lifts, and the air, clear

They’ll live in a silent, funereal drear

Down at the Coffee Shop – #poetry #FebruaryWriting


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

In a quaint little coffee shop, across the street

The town folk get together, to have a little treat

Every morning, like clockwork, they arrive at eight

To get their favorites, from a gal, they call her Kate

Now, let me tell you a bit, about this dear ole lady

Some folks say her coffee’s, tasting kind of shady

They claim it has a hint of peach, just a bit fruity

But Kate says no, it can’t be, blaming it on Judy!

The folks suspect, they’re in cahoots, those two

Even the tea was off, smelled like hazelnuts, eew!

Seems the lovely ladies, had been having some fun

Switching up the drinks, before the day was done

They began to laugh, thinking they had pulled a gem

Until the folks, tossed the drinks, right back at them

Don’t Apologize ~ #poetry #FOWC


, , , , , , , , , , ,

Deep within, we may be petrified to learn

How others perceive us, in their own eyes

But, you know your worth, don’t let it concern

Remember who you are, and don’t apologize
