Ladies:

One thing I love to do is to write Shakepearean sonnets.  I guess its my need for order and to be precise.  Sonnets put demands on you for meter, rhyme and total number of lines
I thought it would be wonderful to hear from others about what they write whether that be poetry or prose.  Ladies lets share some of our original work.  Let share a bit of ourselves.

I have a number of things I enjoy doing with my spare private moments.  CafeMom is definately one of them but something that is more private is that I love to write Shakespearean Sonnets.  I thought I would share one here and hope you like it.  Love to hear what you think.


A LOVE SO FRESH 
I wake alone and reach but you're not there
Until you move appearing from afar
Dissolve to one, the common life we share
To alter states this moments scene would mar. 

The quiet of this time, the best of all
Yet passions risen makes it even more
Engulfed by heat our sharing does enthrall
Each fibre of our life now as before. 

Our essence spent, joined quietly again
Until we hear reality cry out
Reluctantly we answer its refrain
Protected by a love strong and devout 

A separate two whose aura reads as one
A love so fresh as if its just begun

When I have a chance to relax I like to write, often this happens late at night, when my son is sleeping.  I like to write poems, but also articles.  I like to work on beading, as well and relax with a cup of tea of course!

here is my two most recent ones the first one is about my dad and sister. the second about my mother and my mil

Sit down and look back
Does it seem rite to you?

Sit down and look back
Is it rite what you do?

Do you think this is the way
To bring us together

Don't push her on me
It's not worth the bother

I promise you now she's not part of my life
I promise you now she'll never hurt me again

I want you to see her
See past her fake face

Look into her soul
It's a dark scary place

She looks down on you
There is no love there

Look into her eyes
Are you too scared to look there?

I know you can see it
The evil inside

I know you can see her
The way she can hide

She's pulling you along
On a very slippy road

Are you ready and willing
Will you ever let go?

I hope one day you will see it
The hate inside of her

I hope one day you will hear it
The poison of her words

The things she can say
The shit she can do

Is it worth loosing everyone
Is that what you want to do?

MOM

I spent so many years hurting deep inside my soul
I spent so many years wondering if i'd ever know

Would I feel a mother's true love
Would I feel a mother's kiss

Would I know just how a mother
Can touch my aching heart?

Would I be able to run and hide
Behind a mother's wall

Would I be able to look up to her
as  a model for my life

A mother such a sacrid gift
Everyone is born with one

A mother isn't simple
It's hard and painful I know

A mother's love is easy
My mother's love is hard

A mother's hugs are warm
My mother's hugs are hard

A mother protects her children
Not runs the miniute she can

A mother stands by her kids
Not take a stand against

I looked for years inside her
Wondering when a mother would appear

I looked for 19 years
And then suddlen she was here

A lady who is far away
I've never seen her face

I've never been held in a warm hug
Or a protective glance

I've never held her hand
Nor have I felt her take her stand

A mother was given to me
Yet she did not bring me here

She found me
And I found her

All alone I sit now here

My mother is so gentle
My mother is so great

My mother is so loving
My mother can save my world

My mother stands up for me
My mother never runs

My husband gave me a gift that day
When he handed me the phone

He gave me the gift of a mother
He was willing to share his own

No longer do I cry
For the women I didn't have

For she may not have the same blood
Running through her veins

I may have never met her
Or seen her face to face

But from her world to mine
I can feel her love each day

With every word she says
I feel her love shine bright

So thank you dave for sharing
Your dear mother with me

Now I know why my mother
Could not love me so

It was because she wasn't my mother
It was OUR mother who was ment to be.

Wow...I really love poetry and you girls have talent!  Maybe with all the free time I'll have this summer, I'll get inspired and add a few lines here...

Very nice work as well.  I enjoyed reading these.  It is so great to express your feelings openly yes in an interpretive way.

Hi everyone!
I'm new to CafeMom and am so glad I found this group!!!
In my "spare" time I write anything and everything (poetry, plays, short stories) but I also play the guitar and write songs.
I wrote this one called "Love Floats" about my husband for our anniversary...

You're so beautiful

When you open to me

Your words are like waves

Washing over my feet

You bring out the best, I guess

That's how it's supposed to be

Perfect you perfects me

 

And I know there are dangers

Like getting caught in the net

But I'll take my chances

I'm not done swimming yet

 

Chorus:  You turn me to liquid

Like a puddle against your toes

You turn me to liquid

With the kind of love that floats

 

Sometimes I get frustrated, but then you

Fill my lungs with hope

Cause I'm treading water, I'm growing weary

And you toss me a rope

 

And I know there are dangers

And monsters hidden from view

Those beasts scare me

But it's worth it for you

 

So this is my song

That I can't stop writing

Trying to make it sing how I feel

I'll be your battleship

And I'll never stop fighting

This is it, this is real

 

And I know there are dangers

Like getting lost at sea

But baby, if you can't find your way

Reach out for me

Chorus 

Refrain: Your lips are like the ocean

And my tongue is a paddle

We'll let passion push us

We're guided by a candle

Now the current's flowing fast

I hang on to your hand, I will

Let you be the cowboy

And I'll be the saddle

 CHORUS, fade
