Poem for a Thursday Challenge (everybody gonna shine)

My Music Love 

My music love is not the kind
of today.  Rather much older
Rolling Stones and Beatles I find
Oldies radio played bolder

Youth to thirty-five jive to beat 
Video goes with--they have need
Eagles, Janis Joplin, my treat 
Our marriage, a "Proud Mary" theme 
 _ _ _

"(We)* thumbed that diesel down
Me and Bobby McGee..."
into New Orleans town
We'll shine you wait and see 

*(note) Janis and me

A Tuesday Ditty


That was what made me strong
That was what made me love
That was what kept me brave
That was to last me all day

That was your kiss this morn

 - Although 32 words with a Flash title I did not write it with a Flash Poem in mind.  The 'Garden' flash designation was a leftover from Sunday's cute last minute write.  I am sorry about that.

A Flash 55 Poem

Emperor of the Dawn
Quincy Washington
Used with Permission

Little boy's treasure trove 
Eyeballs skulls shrunken heads 
Fingers with fingernails 

Begin to get the drift 
Dried flowers and snakeskins 
Feathers rainbow colored 

Others too mothers cringe 
Eagle head feathered eye 
Dried sticks and kitten paws 

Trinkets from sister's box 
Borrowed for his display 
Trading marbles for gold 

You love it 
Mother's Boy  
He is
