Bright yellow sparks glisten around the landscape
Sheer environment expose
Warmth slinks down every step
Spur like rays muster in long light
The wolves wait to howl
Soon--Bunch of flowers
Huddle in with sunlit love

dog, lost love,
My Saddest Day(A Dog Gone Tableau)
I Had to leave him
(though he yapped and whined)
at the adoption drop off,
(I still loved him so)
with folks that I'd entrusted
(he was my dear friend)
with his safe keeping.
(He'd turned old and blind)
His mournful howl followed me
(when we let him go.)
as i exited the door
(How can my heart mend?)
My two poems for the Intermingle Contest of Craig Cornish:
My Saddest Day, written a while earlier than actually posted on 9/21/2014
& A Dog Gone Tableau, posted 10/17/2014 a few days after I wrote it.

Winds may howl,
Wild animals growl,
The forest grows cold,
For I am lonesome and old
As the sun peaks through the clouds,
I hear your soft, young voice so loud!
And though you speak dead man's lines,
You speak them with majesty divine
As I am wrapped in my woe,
I only want you to know...
...that roses die black and violets lose blue,
But I will never die
And you know I love you!
by Anthony Biaanco |
gently rustles silver leaves
gliding through open windows
a golden summers evening
like a cardinal's rubied wing
warming the brutish bluish soul
of winter's icy cheek
like a spray of ocean blossoms
bursting from a magicians sleeve
into caverns of lonely hearts
rooting oh so very deeply
like a siren sweetly offering
a sextant for the wayward bow,
just before it strikes the reef
and leaves in a flaming howl

flower, howl, imagery, lost love, love, mirror, sad love,
Holding you inside one fragile beautiful flower blossoming dream
Sweet you are my love painting words breathtaking within all wishes
Silvery streak of moonlight shimmering a star
only now I read between the lines trailing thoughts
How can you ask someone to stop loving without care
an impossible task even for the hardest of hearts
If I were the last person on this planet sunshine through clouds
that's how it draws to me you're asking me not to love you
Misery likes company cuts deeper than a knife wounds beauty
never was the answer to love in our friendships face
by Justin Bordner |
desire, howl, winter,
Your poetry talks to me in the moody night
a voice of indigo telling me secrets of pain and love
while Luna licks my ear with impatience for my excitement,
I begin to walk faster, like a wolf on a scent, your red scent,
following shadows into sounds of howling winter
seeking just one more whisper from your passion
one more paw print in the hard snow of destiny,
will I ever find your lair of love in the cold night
I swear that I can see the copper glow of your eyes -

I wander about
like a fish out of water
in the surf blue sea
Me a traveler
in the congress of gray rocks
where carcajous howl
A vacant lot mind
wavered in the breeze empty
land soul never rests
Heart sighs seeks haven
warm breasts of the beloved
in my country home
I see the river
boatmen singing love ballad
flows out of water

Love On The Riverbed
He pitched a tent on her banks
Her teeth clenched as pegs dug deep
Campfire sparks, heat's erecting
The winds howling in lost flight
by DAVID ARCHULETTA |
lost love, love
The wants of her heart beckoned of lonely streets
Like the summertime wail of the Snow Fence
When empty winds through weathered pickets
Howl for the cold company it keeps

art, beauty, god, happiness, metaphor,
and it feels good and yellow.
and bounces off your eyeball like a trampoline.
and makes people howl and bellow.
and glistens with a golden sheen.
and nothing you have can buy it.
And it's in everything you see.
and anyone here can have it
And is as mortal as you and me.
It was yours all along.
You're the one writing the song.
and you'll find that it's worth living for.
And it will love you forevermore.

Jab Meri Bechaini Mit Jayegi
Jab Mere Dilko Sukoon Mil Jayega
Yeh Khaalipan Mit Jayega
Do Pal Ki Chandni Ke Liye
Aj Bhi Zinda Hoon Main
Meri Khaamoshi Ke Ageh Aasmaan Bhi Khatam Ho Jayega
Kehne Ke Liye Toh Roz Marta Hoon Main
Thoda Aur Marne Ke Liye
Yeh Deewana Kal Phir Ayega

DEVIL'S HIDDEN RANCH
Coyote howl, dogs growl
Gunshots, dead cow
Red barn left unlock
Horseshoe upon death's door
Tequila in a cup
Salt of cocaine, shadows of insanity
Guitar string, sad song
Bandit near the door, wife on the floor
Yelling out her name, he's gone insane
Loaded gun, life is done
Far and near ending his intoxicating fear
The road under the sun
A coward in his path
Responding to the Devil's wrath
In a Hidden Ranch in Mexico!!!!!!

I raised an Australian dingo,
no name came to mind but Ringo;
he jumped on me,
ripped my clothes daily...
it costed me plenty of money!
Only once I left him alone;
good grief... my furniture was torn!
Oh, should I be mad...
or be kind instead?
I'll sleep over it for tonight!
All Ringo did was run, bark and howl,
mistaking a small cat for an owl;
They took him away
to the zoo today;
he'll whimper form his cage, not rest!
I'll take him back, lest he behaves;
his lesson he'll learn: good manners!
Now, Ringo just stares
to earn forgiveness...
it's fun to play with him and laugh!

She watched as the earth fell asleep
Waited for the yellow moon
soft kisses of unfaithful wind..
Images..Images on her head
Nostalgic memory of a forgotten love
Flashes of things she tried to forget..
Her eyes caught the reflection of the moon
locked inside the rain on her cheek..
She was standing alone..
Her grieving heart sought
solace from the moon
She petitioned the stars
Where is he this very night?
Cruel..oh so cruel..
Beneath the silence of the sky
she bowed her head and cried..

animal, beautiful, dog, kids, howl, humor, love,
Who would have guessed/ the love carried for a beagle no less
Lily howling at the moon/ with ears long as her toes our ****
she gave birth to Bambi with no tail/ jack a be , 3 yrs later she is ours still
no describing the love for our girls / dressed in pink shirts and curly frills
the girls don't like when we leave home / they show us for leaving them alone
the pillows torn and howling non stop / we love our girly beagles until we drop

desire, freedom, grief, life, loneliness, longing, nostalgia,
Sharp fangs flashes as he growls
threatening to bring death
the eyes flames in fury
looking for an escape
He once ruled in his kingdom
the predator in a solitary wild
strength was his armor
never feeling sorry for his fights
One day a trap caught the king
in an iron throne, a crown he was given
yet he rejects the admires
for it is not what his heart desires
he longs of his life back
he was a beast, fierce and wild
freedom is his definition of love
one the master will never understand
The death that echoes in every flight
the chase that severs wretched life
the danger of the wild
now he cries his lonely howl in the night
by Ken Carroll |
I am animal
I am the wolf
your hunter and gatherer
I will hunt for you
lay my kill
at your feet
I will bite you
mark your neck
with my teeth
If the moon is full
I will howl for you
I become the wolf
for you this night
just to taste the blood
of your chocolate lips
In my wolf skin
I seek your summer brown body
I follow the trail
of your beating heart
The hunter becomes the hunted
You wrap your arms around me
Captured by your embrace
Time in relativity slows
all else fades into nothing...
by Phyllis Babcock |
Silvery moon cast shadows
On winters fallen snow
Cracks of ice melt deep down
Echoes of the past resounding
Cold winds howl
As heaviness encases
One by one dreams fade away
Killing the fire that once burned inside
Snow sucks the warmth
Ice crystals refuse to melt
Coldness engulfed the heart
Look at what it has done to me
What it has done to you
We drift in frozen water
Drowning in our sorrows
Frozen crystals of time
surrounding our soul
Tearing our world apart
I float on endless streams
Clutching to stay afloat
Our love dangerous yet beautiful
Encased in blocks of ice.

animal, best friend, deep, growth, health, howl, love, parody, son, sound, star, truth,
There is going to be a jump,
the only one that could thump-
in this room of bloom...
What are you doing sitting when you could be a standing ox?
Are they out on patrol as you wann the metal into your soul?
Dive deeply hard Sims-
they made you corrupt,
these are dignities we divide,
they had no name before you arrived-
more cola now,
less socially sane,
yes please ignite the flame,
I said I loved you-
but in due course you became scarce,
the lizards re-arrived to show demise,
every ape was lionized,
I compounded the pedals lady,
they spun in pride,
I evoked medals baby,
I'm sorry they arrived.

angel, beautiful, beauty, dream, feelings, joy, love,
Star of a thousand dreams
your loyal servant kneels
Brightly warm shining jewels
Golden promises to protect
Holding love precious beauty
Light softly gleams a blessing
from your beautiful soul
Miracle of life burns
A candlelight flickers
With breathless fire
inside whispering winds howl
Each heartbeat skips
Opening chambers door
Blood of passion flows true
Blossoming silk kiss
Uniting under one banner
Dancing to the tune of joy
happiness our universal goal
Eternal life embraces you
Sweet loving rose forever in paradise

desire, hilarious, howl, humor, women,
Are there any nice ladies out there
Who'll take on a nice guy like me
I'm fully trained good with children
And flea free.
Loves dining walks in the park
And although I can be a handful
I do not bark.
I have been vetted
And love being petted
Everyone says awe when I enter a room
And poo! when I make a mess
Well I'm just a man
I'm so loving and affectionate
And in need of a loving home
I'm so faithful
And will never roam.
I need a woman.open to offers. must be nice and have a yacht.please send picture of yacht.

happiness, life, love,
I want to honestly smile
To show my laughter lines
To make them stretch and widen
Beyond any confines
I want to solemnly weep
To wear angst as my guise
To have sweet salty teardrops
Escape these arid eyes
I want to shriek and scream
To howl sharp and loud
To hear my voice break silence
Tear off this defensive shroud
I want to release these inhibitions
To live without my fear
To crack this stolid composure
So I can be sincere
I want to be utterly free
To lose all sense of control
To know what it means to be human
To live with heart and soul
by Sallam Yassin |
leadership, memory, tribute,
Pure song of love - yours
In a melody
to faith and love
In man's one heart - a leader of divinely touch in love
Of heaven - a haven and bliss
Who saved his nation
Out of calamity of hate
And tyranny of race
Ruins and howl of dreary
To home of rainbow
Diversity in harmony
Of love the sun of morn
Honor in rise, honor and rise
The dawn stretched to hope
Mandela - an icon
His Images Still for hearts
For minds in doubts of dark
for us - Mandela
Still - a dare star of hope
At horizons in haul of time
by Darlene Gifford |
autumn, nature, tree, wind,
Gusting winds whip through the air,
stripping leaves off trees clinging there.
And sunrays play hide-and-seek
behind darkening clouds, like children they peek.
Dear Lord, I love your crisp Fall days,
enjoying the sun's fast fleeting rays.
I laugh as gusts of wind push me along.
And I hear the howl in Autumn's song.
Black branches wait for quilts of white,
to cover them from the cold of night.
I shiver a little as I hurry home,
knowing in this, God's Day, there hides a poem.
Dedicated to my poetry friend, Viv Wigley

absence, adventure, longing, missing,
Alone I stand on foreign land,
My home is here, my heart not true,
Oh ! Africa, your soul I crave.
Through destiny, my pathway ‘s made,
Where eagles rest on mountain peaks,
My youth is back to heights I seek,
with winds that howl to oceans roar,
I found my place at nature’s door
Oh Africa ! my sacred place,
I share your love of open space,
My star of hope, it rises there,
My home my country’s life I share
Savannas health that rivers bring
In habitat of the lion king
