The Color Of My Heart



Sketch the sunset leaving today behind sinking in the footsteps of yesterday. And feel the ripple of all life combined empty your thoughts, take all but love away. Emblazon upon your mind, blue of sky gilded by the golden hue of sunrise. And capture a shooting star zipping by watching its beauty materialize. Blend the yellow of a buttercup's glow with the flickering flash of firefly lights. And walk the Earth, yet let no footprint show respecting life by honoring its rights. Mix well, until presumptions fall apart and thus reveal the color of my heart. (Sonnet) Dec. 1, 2018 Colour of my heart Poetry Contest Sponsored by: John Hamilton

You Might As Well Smile


but i wouldn’t fault you words spilling from a loose connection i forgive the negative they are tied to your artistic temperament your heart translucent exposes wires tattered and frayed a myriad of internal cuts and bruises i can hold such damage with barely a touch soothe the gnawing of varmints uninvited draw out a collage of smiles patiently waiting to adorn the you i see i can draw your laughter deep and resounding i can love you unconditionally for better or for worse be that handy little light one carries to duel the dark Thu Mar 5 2020 Armand Hamouth

Who Is Cutting Down Trees From Rain Forests

the lullaby of tropical birds sketches the sounds of the early morning air a spotlight of gilded rays above purple clouds traces a blue filtered peak trees unite warmly feed on the drizzle of rain like a nectar gifted native plants spill in colors hurried fill the barren ground mammals of every kind unified lay unseen asleep and covered in blankets green and i wonder wonder who who would nullify this bouquet of sweetly scented awes With Love Armand Hamouth

A Choice

Peace again rules My  Day
Comforting.... in a pleasant light hearted way
Nature draws me near
Banishing all my fear
Thank You Lord
For giving me Light
Holding me Dear through the Night
It is a Choice that we make
A Dream this Love must not forsake
Take my hand and come with me
There is nothing if you follow the dark
Eventually you become the mark
It is never to late to swallow your pride
Humble is a lasting stride.....

I Will Wait

I composed a song version of this poem with different lyrics but the same "beat".
When you see three "dots" ...  pause for a second.


All it took...
Was your hand caress my neck...
As you passed.

Or a word...
Of affection, not some play...
You were cast.

No gifts... to please,
No wants... appeased.
So few... the signs,
Your eyes... were mine.

We create...
What we wished was truly there...
When it's not.

No ones fault...
She can't be the fantasy...
You had sought.

True romance...
Only happens when 
Two hearts have
Joined as one...

Until then...
I will wait for 
Love to come.

Small The Bud

Love is of itself an entity, 
Never knowing when it's touch will be.
 
Hate appears, a sentiment as well. 
Predators of love in consort dwell.
 
Cunning with intentions unrevealed. 
Spiteful in its malice to conceal.
 
Speak the truth to know a friendship's birth, 
Legacy of trust, proclaims your worth.
 
Time for all who live is all too brief.
Shun beguiling paths that lead to grief.
 
Look beyond impressions you assume. 
Small the bud, so beautiful the bloom.

Your Love

You
touch my
heart often
by being you
and by loving me 
with all your heart and soul
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Your unconditional love
fosters stength within my being
that creates character at my core
and empowers me to be who I am

Toon Time

If I could be a cartoon character
Which one would I be
I thought about being Fred Flinstone
But he's too old-fashioned for me

And then there's maybe George Jetson
A man who knew electronics
Nothing like Yosemite Sam
Who needed to be hooked on phonics

And what about Shaggy and Scooby
You gotta love those scooby snacks
I've never really considered a Smurf
And their tiny little mushroom shacks

Or maybe I'd become a super hero
Who comes to save the day
Batman , Green Hornet or Underdog
Who puts the bad guys away

Maybe I'd live in Jellystone Park
Where Yogi is the king
For Hello Mr Ranger Sir
Is just the funniest thing

I Want Not to Fade Away

My one burning wish -
I want not to fade away
like rotten lace, dumped
onto a trash heap and forgotten.

I want to leave myself behind, 
for those who come after
to inhale during breakfast.

Not money, like my mother,
who judged it to be the only thing
of worth she had to leave behind,
as though her love meant nothing,
as though her virtue didn't count.

A nonpareil pattern of motherhood,
of personhood for that matter,
written in permanent script,
propagated in layers of goodness,
flung onto her progeny
with the glue of infinity. 

As long as I live, so will she.
I want that, 
when it's my turn to go.

Lord, I've Been Hurting

		
	
Lord., I've Been Hurting!

This one thing I am
 most certain…
Lately I’ve been really hurtin’.

I trying to do right, but it 
turns out “wrong.”
Where, in life,
do I really belong?

So many people
 pass me by.
Sometimes, someone
may say;  “hi!”

I don’t know if this message is
 getting across?
I feel so confused and 
completely lost.

A message of “help” has my
 prayer and plea…
For God to reach out to me!

He reached down and
made me whole!
HIS love and compassion
 filled my soul!

Spending time with Jesus
 is time well spent!
It was for you and me that 
Jesus was sent!

Steel Butterfly

A weak worm hatched
From an egg that is fragile
Trying to survive the world
Full of predators and guile

Romanticsm has been just an instrument
To be confined in the ego
And a faint serfage
On behalf of love upon herself

So she claims herself
No longer merely a companion
Metamorphosed as time goes by
A mild steel butterfly

How I Need Jesus


Dear Jesus…  I realize
how much I really need you!
  I want to honor, 
love and trust you!

I  know that others will
disappoint me…
I know that you’re here….  
And will take care of me!

  Your principles of holy
living is what you taught!
Love, Joy and peace…
is what you brought!

 May I bring honor 
 to your name!
Your message of salvation,
I need to proclaim!

Dear Jesus…  You’re all I need!
 And so much more!
It’s you that my life 
was meant for!

 I offer to you, my lord, 
praise and thanksgiving!
For all you’ve done,
 And the life you’re giving!

You all I’ll ever need!  
The anointed one!
There’s victory in YOU!
Life’s battles are won!

Character

As the sunlight permeates the fog
Revealing dust's debris
Sunbeams filter within the soul
Exposes faults carefree

As selfishness dances around 
Critical nature unfolds 
A little pride displays itself
That hateful spirit cold 

Lasciviousness floats below
Displays lust's wantonness
Are these desires cleaned from the soul
Other thirsts thoughtlessness

Cleansed by sunlight's radiant beams
Variance swiftly exposed
Hatred, wrath and strife destroyed
To love quickly transposed

When touched by the master's swift hand
All character flaws cleansed
Why did not simple surrender
Happen sooner my friend

My Queen of Hearts


She’s like the Raging Winds that Blow across a Stormy sea
             
A Rose petal gently Swaying in the Summer breeze
           
She's the Kiss of Sunshine glowing over Mountain tops
                 
Her brush paints the Moon and bright Stars
                

She’s Fire and Fury and I'm her Lion heart  
                          
The Queen of my Love Story the Lovely Joan of Arc
                       
She's a woman of Grace of Leather and Lace of Soul divine 

I thank God she's mine      ~All mine~      She's my Lady Valentine

Set Your Heart Free

You could stay angry forever, but you know that's not the truth,
Because underneath that resentment is hurt from loving you,
Even if it was only for a moment, it's better not to hide,
Because, believe it or not, that resentment eats you up inside,
It trickles down to the next in line,  and leaves a sense of debree,
There is no reconciliation, pride never sets our heart's free.....

i wove you a poem

I had a dream.
In the dream I wove you a poem.

I used the fiber of my character 
to create spools of silken thread.

Then I dyed them 
in the colors of my imagination.

I reinforced 
each and every single strand 
with the strength of my love.

Spun the spools  
from the intricacy 
of my spirit.

Enamored by your vision,
I pattern every part of me,
every memory,
into every filament of my fabric.

Finished
I initialed my woven piece.

I ''Lost''

When I love you I'll show it,
When I show it, I mean it... 
When I mean it, I'll say it... 
When I say it... Well... You win...

Fires of Life

Figuratively there is good and there is bad
Intuitively we know there are high paths and low
Rewarding goodness; not hatefulness when so sad
Eliminating love, the thief comes to take what you know

And there are consequences for each choice made
Children who wander lives without a mother nor dad
Destitute families who’s last night never laid
Unless a miracle occurs their lives will be bad

So, in the course of  suffering and destitution
Come magnificent family courage and strength
And some how a divine illumination 
Causes a peaceful and caring restitution

And the answers come often at the end of time
But, looking back, They’re no more blind

Little Crush

I love the way she walks
I love the way she talks
I love the way she laughs
I love the way she acts
I get this feeling all over
All the way to my toes
I have a crush
A little teenage crush
I don't know what to do 
About this lovely little crush

If she only knew
About the way I feel
Maybe she would blush
Maybe she would run away
Maybe she  would hug me
Maybe she feels the same
That's wishful thinking
No need to rush

I love the way she smiles
The way she wears her hair
If she only knew
Would she run to me
Don't know what to do
About this lovely little crush

The Hurdles of Forgiveness

The Hurdles of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a skill, a strength
because it is born out of character
and does not come easy.
It is a  mountain encountered on life’s road, 
a steep climb to condonation,
reaching the summit to find peace and healing 
waiting to embrace you.
Without forgiveness, there can be no peace.

Forgiveness is a choice, an attitude
which must be learned.
unlocking  chains of bitterness and resentment
allowing  the spirit to  soar free.
Forgiveness is a check, ripped in half
cashed only by the mind,
satisfying all debts.
It is the needle that mends the soul.

Forgiveness is love.

Amuse

Amuse... In a world of splendor, I want to share thoughts.
To capture others with a creative voice
To embrace emotions as a writing tool
To ruminate another’s introspection

I am just a muse.
I want to be your best friend.
I want to enable you to write again.

Within the universe, are beautiful landscapes to provide stories to contemplate.
Why not ponder romantically and write about the love you found in Greece.
Be your reason to fulfill your dreams.
I am just a muse.
Think please.

The multitude 
In famine
Poverty stricken
Economic disparity
Just topics to theme

I am just a muse meditating ideas.

HAT POWER

HAT POWER

My Hat is a rush a power to my head
wear a hat every day or as often as you are lead
hat love and hat passion I must spread
ladies without your hat, your entire look
is in shreds.  

Please take note, this is not a quote
if it's not saying something,
 it's doing nothing
if it's not doing anything
It's not worth nothing
my hat is a rush of power to my head.
Hat Power Yaaaasss!!!!!

Fool's Gold

Fool's Gold - 15 November 2016


Fool’s gold is all glitter and shiny,
But leaves your hands empty and slimy.
The best way to describe you
And your character so untrue.

I had you in my arms;
So sure you’d keep me from harm.
But instead you brought it to my door,
Leaving my heart broken on the floor.

You seemed so wise and kind;
Turns out I had been blind.
The flatter and flirting was never for me,
But I was too love-starved to see.

I thought you were my prince Charming,
And fell for you without warning.
There are no more tears on my face;
I am now merely an empty space.

Intuitive Authentic

Intuitive
with a friendly, caring nature, I am imaginative and spiritual.
I share my home nest with my older brother, adult son and soulmate.
I love antiques, dancing and spontaneous adventures on ATVs. 
I feel sorrow for humanity, but gratitude and love are my home emotions.
I fear ignorance, the medical community and for my son's life after I pass.
I would rejoice to see brotherhood lived in global peace and equality.
Resident brat of all in the U.S. Army world, I lack a hometown.
