Explore the concept of Time in a poem
Written by jgonzalez5671 in portal Poetry & Free Verse

Creep

Tomorrow's petty

Pace is today's rat

Race

A newborn suddenly

Fourteen

Toddler soon a dating

Fiend

A slow moving work

Clock's hand

Minutes to years

Magically passed

Dishes done

Laundry folded

Life's book halfway 

Done

Story just begun

Finish this sentence “I’d love to _____ but my _____ just _____!” (And then write a story that follows it.)
Written by jgonzalez5671 in portal Fiction

Excuses

I'd love to move

Forward

But my foot

Just fell

Asleep

Guess my 

Circulation

Is yelling

At my heart

Wake up

Move

Wake up

So I trudge on

Slowly

At first

Then picking up

Speed

And my daughter

Watches

She sees all

Weakness

Fallibilities

Sometimes strength

And always

Undeniable

Love

Here, She Lies

She was always the best at...

She knew how to...

Well, she never...

Honestly, she lies

Honestly, she lied

My first love
Written by jgonzalez5671

She Me, Me She- We

My first love, a fellow swimmer

My mermaid sister in the sac

We floated together sharing

And exploring our wombed space

And nine months later we adventured

One shortly after the other

But, virtually, together

On a journey that's lasted

More than four decades- so

Far!

We've hugged and laughed

We've thrown stones

Called names

Teased and hurt each other

Others

Like magnetic poles, we

Are pulled to each other

Not opposites, but bound

By a womb-mate bond

A force, that can only be

Described as true love

Life's breathe

Before breathing air

Life's nourishment

Before latching

Love you womb-mate!!

Drabble me this. 100 words of fiction. Not 99, not 101, not 847. One hundred words precisely.
Written by jgonzalez5671 in portal Flash Fiction

Collision

Cassie's feet felt heavy.  Well, not heavy really.  Thick.  Stuck.  She tried to wiggle her toes and a pain shot straight up from her toes to her scalp- threatening to split her in two. Darkness.  Her right arm bent beside her unnaturally.  Again, she tried to move it.  No pain this time.  But, no movement.  With her left hand she brushed her matted hair from her eyes.  She felt something sticky, wet by her right eye.  Blood?  If only there was light?  What happened?  Cassie reached in front of her for any clue.  She heard it then.  The haunting laugh.

All About Pets
Written by jgonzalez5671

Civilized

I had a bird once

who fluttered and sang

But then I got a cat

Whose belled collar rang

When she chased the bird

And pierced him with her fang

A pup, I bought from the store

He promptly satisfied hunger pang

Ate the cat in three big chomps

Let the doggie door rattle a bang

As he defecated feline in the yard

A hawk, just then, on wire did hang

He swooped down on poor Fido

Gun loaded, aimed by Mr. Yang

He shot that hawk from the sky

"Mine. Get your own...  Dang!!"

Your child is coming of age. You realize you need to have "the talk". What wise words will you impart?
Written by jgonzalez5671

God Speed

There are no easy answers

No right or wrong to guide

Listen to your heart, gut

"Cute" isn't always EVERYTHING

Heartbreak happens

Very few things are PERMANENT

Be true to you

I may cry, but you can always

Talk to me

Be safe

And anytime you want to

Pretend to be three again,

I'm DOWN!!  :)

Pick a turn of phrase that needs to be retired due to misuse or one that should be brought back. Such as, "You need to pull yourself up by your boot straps." Misused, this phrase originally meant to be ironic and a reference to completing an impossible or ludicrous task. Pick one and explain yourself.
Written by jgonzalez5671 in portal Stream of Consciousness

Defiance

Not exactly following the dictate

But, never one to vainly negate

An opportunity to vent my disdain

From the use of this single refrain

"Irregardless"- a common misuse

Fingernails on chalkboard, this abuse

Redundant, dribble, sheer ignorance

Its application, a great grammar offense

"Lighten up," my friends so urge

When eruption, I'm on the verge

I KNOW there are things worse

But, the offenders I wish to curse

To keep my blood pressure in check

Please keep your verbiage correct!
