eve, nature, nice, night, romantic love, sun, sunset,
Huge red-orange sun slowly recede,
Upon the sky seem to bleed;
Whispers of night, calling home,
Such sunset days rarely spent alone.
Look ahead to starry skies;
Not time for early goodbyes.
Without love cannot the heart grow-
A new day comes beyond the rainbow!
Warm Paris breeeze gently blow-
Roses atop the bureau;
Music with a certain ease;
Smooth jazz, if you please.
In darkness of shadows, waits he!
The night is young-for me!
Stars appear, quiet avenue.
Farewell dawn skies of baby blue.
When from misty dreams awakes,
When tomorrow sunrise overtakes,
Come listen music play,
On gold terrace of the sunny day!

earth, inspirational, love,
I love the Earth
The plants and trees
The Lovely birds
All the Rivers and Seas
I love the Sky
By the beach on a Starry Night
When a Big MOON is Rising
I love to Feel
Happy and FREE
Good friends Around
Everyone's Important to Me
I love to See
The Smile of a Child at Play
In the Park on a Sunny Day
I Love to Be
Close to You
Breathe in your ESSENCE
IMAGINE what I would do
I Can't Resist
When SUN gives a little KISS
I want to "LOVE YOU ALL OVER"

childhood, memory, sad,
Daddy picked his cotton
Six scorched days a week
Sundays were sunny gleeful
Cotton candy I held in hand
He took me to the county fair
Pink and pretty as could be
Balloons hid my child's tears
for the days he toiled away
My daddy loved to toss me
high up in the air
he'd yell, I love you
My pink beautiful butterfly
Ferris wheels and chocolate pies
Sundays truly I
the pink happy butterfly
One day the balloons all popped
Daddy grasping heart
Tumbled to the ground
there are no more
Candy cotton dreams

friendship, poetry, poets,
His line and verse flow like honey
Lovely, smooth, bright and sunny
A pied piper for me
He speaks of love in phrases pure
His words take wing, on airborne tour
Soaring high and free
Yet he himself is down to earth
Epitome of cheer and mirth
A humble soul is he
Always has an encouraging word
'Good friend' the honor on him conferred

anxiety, confidence, dark, faith, motivation,
A dark rainbow rules my life.
When will it ever be sunny and bright?
There is no cool breeze on this hot day.
The dark rainbow comes out to play.
Where is the ruler of peace and love?
Who is hiding the colorful rainbow of above?
The ruler of the dark rainbow is myself, you see.
The only one to take that away, is me.
by Kim Merryman |
Rainbow days and starry nights,
Snow-capped mountains and eagles' flight.
Crashing waves from storm-tossed seas,
Refreshing rain and a gentle breeze.
Delicate flowers and trees so tall,
Red, orange and yellow leaves of fall.
Rolling thunder and lightning bright,
Sunny skies that bring delight.
Cotton puff clouds on display,
A clear blue lake where fish can play.
The chirping of birds and crickets song,
Invites all creatures to sing along.
In all these things God can be found,
Indeed, His gifts are all around.
Open your eyes and be amazed,
As God reveals His love each day.

love, nature, nostalgia, passion, peace, places, romance,
The afternoon outlined. The sunny strokes
of a samurai blade on her body
revealing things the eyes feign see.
Tempted, wounded, the virgin parchment floats
between her skin and satin cloak.
Artist; afternoon, craving company
draws her inside-out so innocently,
on purpose leaves the yolk indwelling.
The painter in the corner moans,
he jealous of the afternoons artly
Improving skin, bare olive tones
of subtle pastel, the moment partly lost
to the constellations.

brother, daughter, father, history, husband, life, loss, lost love, mother, people, places, sad, sister, son, wife
On a slope graced with green
White marble stands in proud salute
For beneath these engraved pillars of memory
Lie the resting places of heroes
A solitary green fir looks down
As if sheltering the lost and the taken
So many names, from all walks of life
A father, brother a girlfriend or wife
On a sunny day, they glow radiant like their lives
On a dull day, they stand out against the greys
For the living, life goes on
Tomorrow is another day

appreciation, beach, beauty, inspiration, nature, romantic, tribute,
From the tips, of her white foam caps
To the bottom of her swells
The depth of our Love for her
Only the Ocean can retell
As we sat on pristine beaches
Kissed by waves upon our feet
Calling Us to join in with her
On this nautical Retreat
With her coolness, She caressed us
On that hot and sunny day
There, in the depths of her bosom
She allowed us both to play
And when the sun began to set
On her wrinkled, deep blue skin
We both marveled at Her beauty
Then swore, to return, again
by Arturo Michael |
inspirational, life, love,
Tell me why oh why
Why birds do fly
Why clouds drift by so slowly
How in sunny skies
Flowers spring to life
The earth and sky our glory
Pray tell someone so right
Would bloom to blow away
Why memories dance the waltz of love and hate
What tomorrow will be
May sadden me
Why do I feel love
when I hear his name~ "I'm Born Again"
by Tim Smith |
lost love, love,
Rushes to the window
with every pitter-patter
but it is only the rain
crashing into me
trying to wash away my pain
reminding of sunny days
where the pitter-patter
was the beating of my heart
where love was never sought
but happily was found
my heart breathes
feeling once more
pitter-patters run across
the oaken hardwood floors
and I see in her your smile
The rain and my tears fall
yet I know
most go a lifetime without true love
but no not me
my heart goes pitter-patter
one last time
butterflies float away into my soul
and I remember
I loved you
by kash poet |
A sunlight girl
with sunny smile
in my life,
In and out
day and night
of my heart's
all those days
in this wet
after a fresh
where are you?
I need now
give me back
bring back my

death, husband, loss, lost love, sad,
Upon this dark and sunny day,
Kneeling by your flowery display
My teardrops fall like dripping dew,
Remembering my time with you.
Cold hard stone is all that is left
To warm my heart that’s lost, bereft.
Today our life had just begun,
When in a moment, it was done.
I lay, in sorrow, by your side,
Forever yours, your mournful bride.

High upon that willow tree
That's where I wanna be
We just go together like that
Just you and me
Way up in that willow tree
I met you on that sunny day
When the clouds were far far away
I love it when you touch me that way
How you run your fingers through my hair
Love is so crazy good with you
And I really want to keep it that way
by Tim Smith |
beauty, hope, love,
"Stay with me through the darkness
until we find another sunny day."
Dodge through the rain drops falling fast
jump puddles not worrying about getting wet
take my hand and my heart, come hold me close
embrace my imperfections and this life we have chose
Slip-slide down this path of resistance with me
being my rock when tiny pebbles roll free
help find my sun hiding when all seems lost
don't let me go under without one last gasp
Of the beauty, before me, that surrounds
cherished in precious seas of love found
golden flowers sway gentle in the breeze
carrying off splendor for us to forever see

Have a new friend here on the Soup
Her name is Jan
What attracted us to each other you ask?
It was the similarity in our names
Jan is J. Allison
Yours truly is J. Ellison
We were surely meant to find each other!
We have since discovered we have laughter in common
We rarely if ever write about doom and gloom
Basically two happy souls floating along on a breeze
Not to say we don't each have
Those everyday trials and tribulations
There's no escaping them
But our sunny fun loving approach to life
Helps us over the biggest challenges
Jan is so very special to me!

inspirational, joy, life,
What does this mean?
Could it be from within
your soul relaxin
as you read the line
that flow from my pen?
Oh to have the gift
to give all comfort
and joy as I write
I am a calgon poet.
Make your minds drift so far away
from all the worries of your day
as you read about a sunny day
or love to be someday.
To give your heart peace
as you read the poems of love
and comfort in God's peace.
I let my light for life
shine like a beacon to see
in the sea of life.
M.B. thought given to me by friend P.D.

care, love, sweet,
A little love and care
A friendly hello, how are you dear
A little smile
Can go for millions of miles
To make rainbows out of stormy skies
You don't have to be
A little courtesy is sufficient
But what I have to say I can't hold back
I really mean it
And that's a fact
I want to hug you, in the morning
Before it's breakfast time
I believe my arms were made for hugging you
And yours were meant for mine
I want to hug you, in the afternoon
A sunny evening delight
I want to snuggle really close when stars are out
And hug you under moonlight

10th grade, beautiful, cheer up, feelings, imagery, nature, spring,
I love the tingling sensations of Spring
as its energy recharges my heart.
And nourishes nature's many offspring,
supplying green plants with an early start.
I love the soft, caressing touch of Spring,
massaging my skin on a sunny day.
And when the robin redbreast starts to sing,
Winter's doldrums silently slip away.
I love the sweet, sensual scent of Spring,
when color first magically appears.
And the fresh feeling gentle breezes bring,
culminating in sunny smiles and cheers.
I love the subtle arrival of Spring,
a reprieve from Winter's inclement sting.

friendship love, fun, games,
Won't you be my Valentine
Even though we're past our prime?
Now our kids are up and running,
we could escape to somewhere sunny.
We've been neighbours now for years,
let's bring each other some cheer.
You lost your love, I lost mine.
Won't you be my Valentine?
Nights are lonely don't you think?
Instead we could be at the brink
of something new and exciting.
Isn't that thought inviting?
Life's for living I always say.
When the sun shines, make hay.
We could be so good together.
Please won't you tell me whether
you seek comfort just like me.
The kettle's on, I'll make tea.
I'll be yours if you'll be mine.
Won't you be my Valentine?

love, romance, romantic,
For if my love did come to stay,
In shadows across an empty sky,
I would then light up the way,
So she could land nearby.
Have faith must I in my wishing well,
And flood it with coins every sunny day,
And hope shall I in a magical spell,
Upon shores one day we both shall lay.
An ocean then may bring us in,
As seagulls fly above our rest,
We'll find our peace, we shall begin,
And watch the sunset in the west.

i miss you, lost love,
Blue eyes that stand before me,
Seeing all that has come to be.
Never did those blue eyes turn away,
Even in the troubles that may.
They did not turn in any way,
More beautiful than the sunny days of may,
If there was any doubt in them, i could not say.
Always love they did send,
I couldnt have asked for a better friend
But i didnt know you loved me until the end.

beautiful, love, smile, wife,
TEN LINES - FIVE WORDS
Your smile is so bright
It lights up my night
The radiance of your face
Causes my heart to race
Your kisses are like honey
They make my life sunny
You're one of a kind
You make my life shine
God made you so divine
And I'm glad you're mine

appreciation, best friend, blessing, friend, god, miracle,
Love is like sunshine, cheers you up each day,
The smiles and hugs between friends.
A friend's sunny disposition,
Destined to be a good companion.
When you are surrounded by caring friends,
You are all set to have a sunny day.
When a handsome prince guests,
You respond positively and friendly,
What is this magic called love and kindness,
God's sunshine on a cloudy day.
Stop and thank God for his friendship,
What a clever disguise is his.
Sunny days with God and companions,
I am simply thankful to the Lord.
