What causes me to love a poem
Is one that lingers in my mind,
A poem of a kindred spirit kind,
The kind that makes me feel at home.
A solemn poem that makes me cry,
Or one with clever wit and flair,
Or one with sentiment to share,
A poem that causes an awestruck sigh.
The best would sparkle with romance
The kind that Chris Green writes to prove
Superlative his words of love,
Melodic rhyme that woos one to dance
Under a starlet diamond sky
As poetry whispers in the wind
A sonnet forms in mind to send
Along with dreams to wayward fly.

Here lies the best Grandfather,
One who was very considerate.
Remembering him as a child,
I would sit on his lap.
He was a rare person indeed.
He was a colonel in the Army.
Also superlative of a gentelman.
Here lies the best grandfather,
May he rest in peace.

I'm a bunch of superlatives,
like many of my contemporaries.
We love, hate, laugh and cry,
to the greatest degree, like a superlative.

life, love, nature, on writing and words, passion, heart, heart, me,
We, in the heart of midnight, connected,
Charged by electronic parables spun
Through cables and channels of fragile fibre,
Close-knit and ambitious to be as one.
The amethyst drape of coffee shadows,
Heliotrope hands of praying faith
Gathered me in and held me close,
An avid, emotional, passionate wraith.
Devoted, bedazzled I anticipated
Words that hypnotically burn and entrance,
Wings of a dove in the lavender sky,
Soft falling rain from clouds of romance.
I, in the heart of midnight, concluded
Placid in peaceful superlative schemes,
My love is the saviour of hope and salvation,
Guardian of idylls, the keeper of dreams.

hope, inspirational, life, love,
Superlative gestures with an impromptu style
Giving nods, a hat tip, as I walk my miles
For strangers, too, I offer smiles
Each and every day
They in return, give a nod of notice and thought
For now in their eyes, I have been caught
Knowing kindness can never be bought
They return it the same way

beautiful, moon, romantic,
A treasured heirloom
And intuitive feeling
Hanging on a graceful décolleté
Where its luminescence gently rests
Superlative Victorian Moonstone.

and the love that you donate to me!
