Roller Coaster

This is the third poem in a row with summer on my mind.  Homophones.

Roller Coaster

And it's a patient
Standing teen
Stand in teams
Her next hug?
Harness, snugged
Instill calm!  Oddities
In steel commodities
Water blasts
What a blast!
Ever the notion of
Every motion of
Racing too quickly
Raising to quickly
Heightened alarm
Height and all arms
Wrecked if I'd
Start to break
Starts to brake
Coming to a rest
Calming too impressed
Riders getting off
Already back in line

Sudden Downpour

I wanted to add another stanza, but after about twenty minutes of coming up with nada (and watching Amanda play Halo) I decided it wasn't getting any longer.  Word collage.

Sudden Downpour

if   rain's   not  for  falling what is   it
  this           the ducks        summer 
     blushing         to    dabble       for?
  morning    sky
     sagely   should   come   
 surrenders     release    down  on   me

a    smell  so   lavendar  the
 leaf  hovers  fresh     grass
making      like   dew  would
  veined  faces      drop  smile

playing    follow    the     liter
  leapfrog,    me!   end  is
    a                 nigh  not so bad
     second  unmasked

No Poem This Week

This week I'm going to be editing, dismantling, and otherwise dredging through the backlog poems. I've already found some lines I can use better.  Since I'm busy with that, no time for a poem this week.

The Fourth

I did not feel like focusing on writing this week, but it was fun to dream about warmer weather.  Word collage.

The Fourth

bursting     with     excitement
bastion    of   combustion   and
   we   set   the       a pplaus e
 absorbed   sky  mood           ible
   it         on whiskey        vigor
  all         fire

the   colorful    echoing    finale
  acrid  smells      walk home   so
       of  irony                 many
gunpowder    rust            cars   people

the   mosquitos   like  the  idea
  party    flourish   event     is
   just  like it's all         a little
began              perfect      crazy

the next day

flippant    empty   bottles
   ashes      park      discarded
another year has   passed
