Calling All Creative Minds/Poets and Artists on a Poetic Collaboration – “Happy”!

image copyright neha 2022

Hello Everyone~

It’s been a while since I have done one of these but thought it was a good time to do a poetic collaboration on things that make us happy. Could be a piece of toast, a beautiful day or a kind gesture…I think we need to see more of these during these times…

If you are new to my blog you can see an example of a previous collaboration via this link. Everyone is welcome to participate and I will add your contribution in the order they are posted. You can post your piece in the comment, please ensure to post the actual text not just a link in order to be considered. You can post multiple times. Hateful language will not be tolerated and will be promptly removed if posted. The collaboration will be open until 10 pm MST April 30, 2022. As usual, I will start it off, and I hope many of you will join me in making this yet another beautiful collaborative effort!

And the daydreamer,
followed her dreams,
in the open roads,
of spring.

Blossoms bend their heads
in the breeze moving
through this meadow.

Hummingbirds twitter.
Sun is warm.

Knitting Makes Me Happy

When I have nothing else to do I sit

and knit and knit and knit all day
only getting up when its time to pray
then back again to the needles to fit

I knit for babies I knit for kids

I love to mix the colours bright
I love to knit pullovers tight

and now for the hands the mitts

I find the mind involved and away

from all stress strife and things astray
I feel happy that I have the skill to make
clothes for others to keep warm and awake

for me its a reading calculating book

I see beyond the normal outlook
I see the stars rainbows in stitches
away stays sadness magic and witches

Its good to have this as a hobby

pray count and blend happiness
stay focused on The Good Scheme
Be blessed in heart smile in the dream

poetry copyright Anjum Wasim Dar 2022

 

Stretched out on the lawn
bathed in warm sun
we idle with you, our travelling son
spend time on important things
laughter, love and
space to simply be

poetry copyright Kim Whysall-Hammond 2022

She adjusted my jacket collar ,
smiled a that looks better smile ,
with that simple gesture I felt happy ,
I felt loved .

poetry copyright Andy Proctor 2022

 

Under the moonlit sky

I saw you for the first time

I was awed for you were glowing

Like the millions of stars in the sky

But you didn’t see me then, maybe because you were crying

And I found it impossible not to approach and ask you “why”?

You turned towards me, your lips playing a sad smile

You said you wanted to fly

You said you wanted to let out a happy cry

You said you wanted to dream

However hard it may seem

But you couldn’t

You were fading away with the melancholic night

You asked me to stay, to help you dream

You extended your hand for me to take and with you, fly

But I turned away

Because my love,

I too, was fading away

Under that moonlit sky.

poetry copyright Pritha Roy 2022

 

The scent of a smile
Rejoicing the air
Pure moment of bliss

Thank you for the bottom
Of heart melt with
Honey precious light

poetry copyright 2022 @mariekleber37 

 

 

Happiness Comes

Happiness comes in waves
like the rhythm of the sea;
Boundless energy bringing
Pure love and joy
to your every breath.

When the sun rises,
let dreams bloom

on forgotten meadows

poetry copyright Neha (Forgottenmeadows.wordpress.com)

 

holding on
to the fading light
between stars

http://www.kiwissoar.wordpress.com

 

Everything sublime happens
When we’re silent and still
Enough to hear it

http://www.contentcatnip.com

 

Horizon red,
Up dark blue sky,
What is a surprise!

dathaoqutrn.wordpress.com

 

This waking
from dormancy
such precious, delicate dreams
defrosting,

https://lauradenise.home.blog

 

 

When the sun rises

Shimmering shining,

Directions awaken

Rejuvenating senses,

Start a day jazzy brandished

Shining in bouts

Serendipity without knots

https://freshdaisiesdotme.wordpress.com

 

 

Parvenu possibilities proliferate
Potentialities prosper
Prayers proceed positively

musingsofasouleclectic.wordpress.com

 

 

misty whispers, dreams calling
rainbow promises
love fuels faith
in the Divine
one more day
the gift of life is given

http://www.patcegan.wordpress.com

 

 

seeds of today’s promises
kissed by droplets of sunshine
come to fruition in tomorrow’s dreams

surrealisticdreamshome.wordpress.com

 

 

Someday we might find
a place in the sun for just you and me –
perhaps behind the clouds dancing through eternity.

https://nothingbutpoetry.wordpress.com

 

 

When the sun rises
light breaks darkness
into splinters
of receding gloom,
opening pathways
where flowers bloom

https://shirleyhobsonduncanson.com/

 

 

The distant sun, a longing warmth
your soft arms wrapped tight.
The sun kissed cheek, the dimpled chin,
my shade in the light!

pulsingthoughts.wordpress.com

 

 

As a new day arise
Shots of colours
Illuminate the sky
I breath bliss
In a soft kiss

mahshiandmarshmallow.wordpress.com

 

 

straight out
of a dream
a new day

https://tomclausen.com

 

 

Illuminating the way, for all those who seek
The meaning of life, in a world so bleak
The hopefuls stare at the sun, as it rises from the deep

https://poetrytranscendence.wordpress.com

 

 

forgiveness cheers with the daybreak
new beginnings for all
let the love in

flashlightbatteries.wordpress.com

 

 

When the sun rises
I will see the world anew
Through your eyes
Through divine eyes
The blessings that I breathe in daily

Hello Everyone,

It has been a while since I have done a poetic collaboration and I thought with fall approaching soon this would be a great time to do one. The theme of this collaboration is ‘letting go’ ( letting go of a person, season, loss, grief, dreams, anger, hate or any other emotion or object that you may choose to write about). 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…
