The Mortality of Everything

The cup of tea

I see

Is hot to the touch.

But, in an hour or so—

Not so much.

My pristine desk:

A mess;

Clutter everywhere.

I search for things—

No longer there …

Wound-up clocks

Stop,

Standing oh so still.

Hands frozen—

With time to kill.

The Universe

Moves on,

Slowly winding down.

Imperceptibly shifts—

Without a sound.

& I watch.

Stunned

At the grace

Of its ill-at-ease—

Drifting in space.

Once upon a field of snow
Written by dustygrein

His Love For Her

Once upon a field of snow

a babe was put to breast;

his mother’s sparkling eyes aglow

with love, she did impress

his love for her so deep and true

that every ounce of his soul knew

     his love for her.

     His love for her

waxed stronger daily as he grew.

Once upon a field of snow

a young man passed the test;

he earned the right to be her beau,

with passion he’d invest

his love for her, and thus he’d woo

his future bride; so fierce and true

     his love for her.

     His love for her

gave his heart wings, with which they flew.

Once upon a field of snow

a heart was laid to rest;

his soul mate, he had watched her go,

his tear-filled eyes confessed

his love for her, so strong and true.

His future, shaded gray and blue

     his love for her.

     His love for her

would somehow help him see it through.

(c) 2017 - dustygrein

** Note: This form is called a trijan refrain, and is one of my favorite poetic forms to work in. The triple stanza structure lends itself well to story arcs that encompass lifetimes.

I saw him / her today... Start writing a poem, a story, haiku or fiction, that starts with the line above. You can use the two point of views. Tag me
Written by melissatissa in portal Poetry & Free Verse

I just wanna tell you how I feel.

You got me inside out

And I can't hardly breathe

Cause your sight takes me away

To another place that I would rather be than without you

But to you I'm

Just another girl passing by where you work just to see you

You got me going the long way just to see you

I watch your face as you work

Your smile seems fake, your lips turn just so

But when you see me, can it be

That you're waiting just for me?

It can't be... it shouldn't be...

You grab my waist and pull me in

We've met a few times before

Chance encounters on the road

But each time it's time to go

We actually never said a word

But one day I'll tell you that

You got me inside out

Can't wait to see you cause your smile takes me away to a whole other place that I refuse to leave anymore

And I refuse to

Be the random girl passing by where you work just to see you

Just let me know if you feel the way

If you feel the way that I do

Write a haiku about the supernatural.
Written by joyceanne in portal Haiku

Salt Point "Supernatural" (images in haiku)

Driftwood weathering,

Limbs abandoned on the shore,

Remnants of a flood.

Lift dip pull with me,

Canoe on placid waters,

Ocean explorers.

Spring winds tumbling,

Red, yellow silken billows,

Parasail surfer.

Red-hat gentleman

Perches on a wooden bench,

Longing for the sky.

Osprey’s smart-home tech

Surveillance solar switched on,

Smartcam feeds from nest.

Driftwood piled up,

desiccated branches, roots,

Bonfire cremation.

Old friends walking dogs,

Intoxicated on life,

Honeysuckle drunk.

Us

Let us sing together

raise the sand to sky

and watch as sun to weather

will gossip as we fly

up up we will go

to watch the column grow

and add a thought just so

to chatting clouds below 

the braille on the plains will spell

soft words to us will be

"As for the clouds don't let them quell

the rain as is sky's plea." 

we'll babysit and play a bit

with fluffy pillow mongrels

and when we are done we'll cast a skit

for dew drop resting bundles 

I'll hold your palm and count the lines

on wrists and hand and finger

and when we are done to ground we will climb

as hearts forever will linger

in sky our home I think it is safe

to say that we will miss it

but if you're down we'll make it less waif 

and house it joy as our joys kiss it 

"I'll live here!" you say and I must reply

that we will together through storm and soft shine

but if we are wise we still cannot lie

that though it is beauty it is also divine

we must return we must return

but we will make it a "Holiday!"

for every month our souls scourge burn

from life and fly will we away far away

Row row row...
Written by Tylasmith

gentle streams

row row row your boat 

gently down the milky stream of dreams 

row row row until your far from home 

breath the fumes in 

tuck your eyes to sleep 

turn that bass up 

melt into 

chocolate chipped 

rhymes 

row them hips to the lyrics 

sink into the floor 

melt 

down into the carpet 

fall 

down 

into 

the empty 

rhymes 

and subtonic

notes 

jump into bed 

and 

row far 

away 

from the 

creaking 

doors 

of misery 

locked the door 

and 

get 

lost in the fumes 

let all the pain 

go 

and 

drop 

it low 

bring 

your hands to the sky 

and sway into tomorrow 

push them headphones 

deeper into 

my head 

and drown 

out 

the 

pelting 

thoughts 

row your boat 

gently 

down the stream 

of tears 

baby reach your epiphany

Eternal Love ~a senryu sequence~

Look inside my soul,

Gaze deeply within my heart;

Tell me what you see.

Can you see my love,

The glowing fire of passion

Burning there for you?

My desire for you

Is deeper than the ocean.

You make my heart soar.

There are times I feel

Overcome with dizziness

Looking in your eyes.

The day I found you

My life became more complete

Than it was before.

Come lie down with me;

Let your worries fade away,

Safe within my arms.

(c) 2015 - dustygrein

** Note: I know this is a portal for haiku, but the senryu is structurally a cousin, and both can be done in sequences. I love exploring human emotions in these series of verses, as opposed to seasons and the natural world, hence the senryu instead of the traditional haiku.

Eat, Drink—Sleep, Die

We're born bloody.

Travelers from nowhere:

Infinite possibilities,

Statistical improbabilities—

Loved by "Family."

We cry, slightly:

Orators with no skills,

Filled with emotion,

Lost in an Ocean—

Covered with eyes.

We sleep fleetingly …

Innocent, but wary,

Caught in baby dreams,

Prone to scary screams—

Unsettled by sounds.

We grow slowly:

Stumblin'-mumblin'

Day-to-day,

December-to-May—

Moving ahead.

We speak haltingly,

Coaxed by love:

"Goo-goo; ga-ga."

"Ma-Ma; Da-Da"—

 Creating smiles.

We live fully,

Dueling with life:

Waving & Saving.

Craving & Raving—

Weakened by wounds.

We die lonely,  

Stuffed in a box.

Covered with dirt,

Never to hurt—

Resting, at last.
