Streetlights

Streetlights short poem

Uploaded by stephenwebb1


Stands a tall lamppost on the corner of my street
A friend to lean upon as I skip the odd heartbeat
Its streetlight flickers above me during the night
Sending me a coded message for me to sight
It lights the dark around me yet drowns that star
You know that one I look for to find you from afar
Vaguely I figure what you’re trying to clearly say
Love to reply in person if only we could find a way
My shadow reflects here of what you can expect
Can only show this in light of me for you to dissect
Seeing you smile as you look on me without blink
Thrills me no end inside as I know what you think
Streetlight now fades as light of day shines through
Happy times had again, “Yes, I know for you too!”
See you tomorrow night under this streetlight of love
Bringing us warmly together amongst stars above

I would personally like to welcome you to Rhyme Island and hope you enjoy your stay as you read my poems. ‘Rhyme Island’ is a fictional place of my own invention where I escape to in mind to pen my thoughts. It is a place where many people now visit from around the globe as ‘fans and followers’ of Rhyme Island. I am very thankful to the tools of virtual travel via the internet and the powers of social media. Using these methods has provided what I call ‘Tourism of Poetry’. People can visit Rhyme Island and I can reach far-away places at little or no cost to enjoy compositions. I’m an individual character, presently alive and well, who has been given a ‘god given’ DNA of creativity to write. Developed through no ending so far of living experiences the topics and stories constantly unfold. I put my craft to situations that call for reason or purpose hopefully in memorable cadences. My poetry can wrench the language with remarkable throw away insights in between straightforward observations and tales. In the narrative I try and include entertaining digression for feelings, thoughts and emotions to arise within the reader. Sometimes elaborate or over-fussy references may seem out of place but are written through my own vision and way of thinking.I sincerely hope you enjoy visiting Rhyme Island and it helps you in making life what you want it to be. “I hope you enjoy some happy reading please, with lots of smiles!”
