Hello Everyone,

I invite you all to my brand new poetic collaboration, On The Way.  You can write anything that is inspired by the prompt, I am only accepting new poetry at this time. Everyone is welcome to participate and I will add your contribution in the order they come and list the author (and blog link if listed) beneath the post. You may contribute as many times as you wish. Please note that hateful language is not acceptable and I will remove any post I find inappropriate. If you want to see a previous example of my collaborations you can visit here Please add your contributions in the comment section. Please include the actual verse not just the blog link in order to be considered. The collaboration will be open until December 11, 2017 until 11:59 pm E.S.T. Thank you all! So without further ado, I will start us off and hope to see you all join me in creating another beautiful, creative, collaborative, piece!

 

She stumbled on sunshine
that peeked through grey clouds,
on the way home.

Following the path
I knew I was on the way
Toward better days

On the way
to a better life
she found herself

I dashed through dandelions
Scattering seeds, to dainty fall
Each a wish; wanting them all

Sometimes you’re leaving
In order to find the way
That’s leading you home

on the way down
dandelions and daisies
distracted David’s day

On the way to something so beautiful
He stopped and took her by the hand
And they continued on together

surrendering all
these human shells transforming
diaphanous wings
flying in the massive sky
towards heaven’s pristine gates
distant tolling of church bells

Words sometimes get lost,
on the way from Creativity,
the Destinations get crossed,
as Inspiration is quite finicky,
but Poetry always gets the best,
maybe Fantasy, and Passion, too;
yet Lyrics, and Fiction take the rest,
leaving Bloggers to make do,
with whatever scraps they can find,
to get published by the deadline,
and I’m left wanting more,
I know my writing isn’t Pure,
it’s tainted with Pain and Misery,
from a bloody Bitter history,
Darkness, Agony, and Woe,
follow me wherever I go,
but it seems along the way,
Hope and Resilience,
decided to stay,
which makes a difference,
words are harder to find in the Light,
Happiness and Joy jumble my thoughts,
and I often find I miss the Night,
for there, words are never at a loss,
on the way from a freshly Broken heart,
their structure alone can rip you apart,
when they’re spewed from lips of Rage,
the heat and fire burns down the stage,
the audience gives standing Ovations,
yet they’re so Impatient,
demanding an encore,
and I become a desperate whore,
Lost between Pain and Love…

  13. On Being A Soldier

    A neophyte he was commissioned

    In the elite forces

    The glamour and glistening,

    The perfect touch of the olive green

    Was all so beckoning…

    Little did he foresee

    A cruel distortion of the valley;
    A violent paradise!

    After being on the qui vive

    Amongst nameless faces

    Garbed in camouflage battle fatigues

    Watching the crowd gingerly

    For hours together…

    Fighting off the monotony

    With vacant eyes,

    Plastic expressions

    And abandoned thoughts

    That old confident strut and swagger

    Has returned.

  14. Hi, thanks for following me 😊🙏.
