DAILY POEM "OUR KIDS, WHAT FUTURE"?


PICTURE COURTESY OF GOOGLE
What do the kids have to offer?
when there is nothing for them to do.
organizations are shutting down
nothing to see them through.

Apprenticeships are far and few
industry doesn't exist
no wonder the kids are rebelling
their education missed.

DAILY POEM "SUMMER" "IN FREE FLOW"


Dawn breaks
a glimmer of sun
pokes his head out
from whitened clouds.

Warmth follows
like a heater turned on
getting hotter
as the day moves on.

DAILY POEM "THE PASSING AWAY OF AN ICON"


PICTURE COURTESY OF GOOGLE

Born in the United Kingdom
destined to be a star
never knowing who you were
greatness by far.

Your movies were outstanding
an actress of high esteem
at the tender age of ten
you gathered your own steam.

DAILY POEM "PRESSURED BY HER PEERS"



PICTURE COURTESY OF GOOGLE

She started very young
unhappy with her age
at thirteen she felt older
blinded with rage.

Her peers were always more mature
she wanted to be older than her years
mix with girls much older
knowing it would end in tears.

DAILY POEM "BLIND CHILDREN"


PICTURE COURTESY OF GOOGLE

Children as young as five
blind,  never could see
thats what this World is producing
no treatment is for free.

Old folks can see shadows
some never saw their kids
eyes open and useless
covered by their lids.

DAILY POEM "OUR WORLD TODAY"


PICTURE COURTESY OF GOOGLE

As the World turns today
much has happened this Year
people killed or lost
living in fear.

Earthquakes roar and grumble
famine still is rife
for man, woman, child
hardship comes to life.

DAILY POEM "WHAT IS POETRY"?


I write poems
thats a fact
they always rhyme
can't help that.

Everyone has a style
that makes it cool
from free flow to sonnets
there is no rule.

DAILY POEM "MOTHER NATURE SPEAKS"


PICTURE COURTESY OF GOOGLE


Tragedy struck
a Country of woe
Earthquakes of magnitude
catastrophic as they go.

The Japanese people
about their daily chores
never saw it coming
but felt the roars.

DAILY POEM GUESS THE MOVIE (22) "DEADLY BEAST"



PICTURE COURTESY OF GOOGLE

It waits for a certain time
statue like but not dead
poised, waiting for his prey
a time when it can be fed.

Preying on defenseless Humans
treating them like "game"
emotionless, horrifying
noted for its fame.

DAILY POEM " LEARNING DIFFICULTIES"


picture courtesy of google

He was just like anyone else
born a Human being
his years were younger than him
he was capable of seeing.

His peers would poke some fun
picking their victims as they do
he would just laugh it off
seeing his day through.

DAILY POEM "THE GOOD OLD DAYS"


Picture courtesy of google.

When we were young
actors were legendary
from Burt Lancaster
to Harry Carey.

Movies were superb
and lasted for hours
perfect for the weekend
and sheltering from showers.

DAILY POEM "MAKING ENDS MEET"


What do we have to do?
to survive this present clime
Dollars and pounds have no value
Gracious in their time!

Everything rising
costs immense
unable to survive
this dreaded expense.

DAILY POEM "THE HOLOCAUST"


picture courtesy of Google

Herded like cattle
everything left behind
from the rich and affluent
to the poor and kind.

Taken away from a life
that wasn't too bad
business was booming
no one was sad.

DAILY POEM "ROLL ON SPRING"


The days are drawn and cold
the sun is there but not real
it lights up the frosty day
but shows no warm appeal.

Buds are fighting their way to be born
even though the bitterness bites
hardy trees shelter the winds
coming alive from Winter respites.
