Our Mr. Locksmith ~~ an Acrostic Flash Poem

P I C K   A   L O C K

Pick a lock our Mr. Locksmith
Ice in your greedy veins
Cache of favored minerals
King's treasure trove

Awaits your deft hands

Listen to the tumblers' sweet fall
Open they will gladly give their command
Clicking like clockwork, chimes of silver and gold
Keep your bounty, souvenir of a good night's work

A Poem, another Artistic Interpretation

Dawn shyly made her visit; 
   bad scene in her realm 

When dawn shyly made her visit
My senses slowly sharpening
Sloppy Sunday morning greetings
Stinking smells, silent in the dim
Summer sun should be bright but not
Simmering fog boiling at top
Wet mist seeping drops from below.

Miserable.  Clearly I was lost
I'd swam all night trying to hide
What comes now?  Safe from the poachers
Though morning brings another fear
Strangers lurking here mean no harm
Strange to them never seen a whale
Last night was going south not north

Safe harbor?  San Diego looms
The Zoo or the Bay, not my choice

A lesson in science not -- a fringe Poem

Silly things; (like)
  far away black holes
I should write of silly things 
Things like far away black holes, 
of some space-time curvatures,   
also Newton's gravity 
Must come up with a new poem 
One that will have at least some 
connection to science theme 

Here goes:

What was here is gone 
Black holes have concept I like 
All has flown away 

Space-time curvature 
I don't know and never will 
Left day I was born 

Gravity's my friend 
She keeps me right here on earth 
Her love holds me tight
