La Spezia

La Spezia ode

Photo by Vicburton

Sapphire blue turns to white
As waves greet rocks of black
Bella notte, the waves promise, a beautiful night
While the road rises to meet me, and welcome me back

Boats rock gently upon your sea
The clouds turning pink now
Lazily floating above me
Homes of orange and yellow and red
Stones of black and white and grey
Are perched upon the hillside
As smartly as the hat upon my head

I gaze upon your wonder and inhale the air of the sea
I start off the path, breathing calmly as my mind begins to ease
For I am already wrapped in your warmth and charm
You have already embraced me as tightly as the hillside embraces thee

Ciao La Spezia!
Your beauty and charm I have missed
Bella note La Spezia!
A beautiful night upon my eyes you have gently kissed

Poet’s Note

I am so glad you are here. Please make yourself at home, here, next to the arm-chair. Let us talk of poetry and life; let us laugh and crack jokes; let us rule the world with our lofty thoughts and electrodes for those out of line.Most likely I will pee a little when we laugh, and my thoughts are usually random rather than lofty, but you know what they say: “The dog of the exceptional wisdom has the bird of sleeping monkeys in his dreams!”Anyway, I was talking to a guy the other day who was high on pot (he was standing on the toilet) and I mentioned my fear of bush hogs and roaches. He comforted me and then asked why I was in the stall with him.So there you go, my full life story nowhere on this page. I feel like we know each other so much better now. Sometimes I’m serious, sometimes I seriously funny, sometimes I’m seriously gassy. I am at all times grateful for your support.If you have an idea to share, or just want to drop a line, you can contact me at peanuttyoh@yahoo.comBe excellent to each other and glitter on glitterbombs.

Seeking Shangri-la

Seeking Shangri la short poem

An isle so lonely, that no one seeks. Full of allure and comeliness, that no one sees. I search, I seek, my Shangri-La, in solitude purdah of wilderness, seeking for my ecstasy. It’s the detritus they see, winsomeness, is what

Definition De La Beaux

Definition De La Beaux long poem

Billions of billboards and floods of commercials Bombard and pollute young minds and our values Where social vices overwhelm visual material So, what are standards of beauty and virtue? Is beauty really only skin deep, let the young ones judge.

C’est La Vie

Cest La Vie short poem

Others knew it as a song Some use it as expression For me, it was our story “C’est la vie” How can I say this? So many words to express How will I start? Let me say I love you
