Dancing In the rain (Sunshower)

On spring days where I live 

The rain falls down

Cloaking me

In a gentle shower 

A sunshower 

On spring days when I thrive

The clouds show tears

Tears of joy

Even the sun has come to watch me dancing

Dancing in the rain

How is this poem?

Here's one I wrote this past fall. It's written with a sort of couplet rhythym, alternating between moment and memory.

 

 

The Veil

 

Yesterday's braid

Yesterday's beauty

Weaving my fingers,

Unweaving the memories

Pizzicato plucks

In the chord of my autumn locks

Cascading in a waterfall down my back

Glissando, thumbnail on waking hour

The stage lights shining colliding reflecting on my eyes

As I now gaze upon the sun

Daydreams of

Drifting off into the black of fade-out house lights

Black lace and fabrick

A blanket, a veil through which I see the world

 

Yet-

I wonder

Is it a veil through which I see

Or, as it is my soul,

Are these my eyes?

That's really good, CingusMoon. You're a natural!

I would post a poem, but my sister wants the computer now.

dusk to dawn

nightfall

shatter my world

the golden leaves, and black conquers all,

and shadows' lives fade

like diluted watercolors

until nothing remains

so i will sing to myself

and the moon

and wonder who else in portland is awake

waiting for the sky to break again in day

when my skin and city will become more than

monochrome

Sunshower Dance

On spring days where I live 

The rain falls down

Cloaking me

In a gentle shower 

A sunshower 

On spring days when I thrive

The clouds show tears

Tears of joy

Even the sun has come to watch me Dancing

Dancing in the rain

On these days which I love

Pluviophiles

Are like me 

Spinning faster through the falling rain

The Sunshower Dance

Life with a thousand splendid suns.
Helios shines on my ember solitude.
His blinding golden rays voice passion
Over each inch of air.
His turbulent beseeching,  his gaze, his yearning;
any life form feels weak in the knees, flutter in hearts 
My solitude is my castle, my fortification.
Filled with mystery, my uplifting soul.
Constructive criticism would be appreciated!

I wrote this recently! It's an acrostic poem; it was surprisingly easy to write though. Apparently "unsatisfication" isn't a word but I'm sticking with it :P

Wow, this is so good! Acrostics are hard to write without going off topic.

Let's step out of my comfort zone and try this X3

A Word Unspeakable

I wanted to tell you.

But when i tried to grasp on to the words.. they flew

Out of my window, into the bright blue sky

Why can't I just try

I cry past midnight, my world crashing

You slipped out of my clutch, and when you left.. my heart stopped pounding.

Love had been lost, I was left alone

Only because my words had flown

It was all I could to to keep holding on

Until someone new came along

He picked me up and pieced me back together

He loved me like no one else had before

My unspeakable words had been restored.

When the time came to tell him my words

He stopped me and said them first.

This time my world was in a state of pure joy

When this young, caring boy

Told me that I was cared for.

He had gave me everything, and more.

Don't let anyone slip too far away

For they could help you one fateful day.

"hope is the thing with feathers" 

catch my dreams in feathered nets, take my

stars and shatter them, count up their

faults; it gives me a little hope, to know that

something so beautiful can be

imperfect too.
