I know I've been writing a lot lately, but I guess it's because Ineed something to keep my mind off all this stuff I'm gunna have to do this weekend. So here we go. Two poems. The first one is one of my most recent works. The one after is oneI feel I wrote in honor of a guide form, though at that time, I did not know that's what it would be for. As soon as I wrote it the forme came so clear to me that I gave it a name...perhaps I should change the title to the name? That particular poem was written several years ago.
Anyway first one:
The phoenix flys so very high
In the ever brightening dawnlit sky
She turns and weels
The wind she feels
Oh what fun it is to fly!
She soars on the wind rejoicing
Her freedom she is forever voicing
She will now know
The respect she will show
Is by always her thoughts voicing!
She knows in the deepest part
Of her open and loving heart
Always is where
Her dreams she'll dare
And never let them tear apart!
Second one. In honor of...comment if you want the name. LOL No I'll post it after the poem. Just don't know if I should let the whole internet know.
The bobcat hunts for prey,
On animals that are weak, or led astray.
She does what she can to survive the day,
But she knows she's in a bad way.
She stops and looks right and left,
She runs to hide in a deep cleft.
She's being hunted by a man with a gun,
This man has now put her on the run.
She knows she must live,
For she has a mate at home and life to give.
She listens intently
Then she moves oh so gently.
Seeing nothing, she's off like a streak of light
The man had her, but she has now gone out of sight.
He shoots anyway and watches as the bobcat flinches,
He misses her by only inches.
She runs and runs until she can no more,
She will now rest on the forest floor.
She, again, has eluded the hunter's grasp.
She sighs with relief, and gives to her Master, a grateful gasp.
She wonders how many have faired as well as she has done
And wonders who will become queen when she is gone.
In honor of Adriana...main guide of mine. Someone has said that her form is also a ladywith long brown hair.
