Trinket -- an Acrostic Poem 


Trinket of mine you are
Right from the very start 

I knew you'd be for me 
No one finer I'd see 

Keeping score these ten years 
Every day calmed my fears 

Trinket to me you are

A Thursday Poem -- Dark but not

In the Dark

I'm sitting here in the dark
Of the dark I'm not afraid
What's in the dark that scares me

Dark is black for lack of light
Red fired dragons await me
Gorillas howl green snapping
What's in the dark I'm real scared

Orange and black striped poison snakes
Shiny brown bears show their teeth
Grey wolves trying to make friends

Dark wiped in black is my friend
What I can't see won't see me

 - Susie has pulled some black and white and gray tinted pictures from the Web for us to add color with our poem. I chose a picture of a girl sitting in the dark, looking up.
 - You can see Susie's picture choices at the link above, 'The girl sitting in the dark' picture is the last one.

An Art Flash Poem for the Weekend

Old Smoothie;
   cold hairless weasel?

Old Smoothie had no hair
Nor the feathers of olden day

Nothing to keep him warm
‘Twas human clothing or a mate

Old Smoothie chose his mate
She had feathers galore and more

Feathers to keep him warm
That didn’t work still he was cold

Old Smoothie ditched his mate

 - an “Art Flash Poem” having exactly 55 words including its title.  And inspired by a piece of art which is posted on her URL link above. Hint: when I first saw it my guess was two nearly hairless Weasels.
