Poetry Thursday 31 - More childhood work



Daddy Lizard

Beautiful, blonde, blue eyed bouncing baby
Brain in advance of articulation
Evolved to a scintillating lady
Paternal trademark exasperation

A Saurian sire or normal dad
Handle bestowed by the loved ancestors
Interpretation of sound - nothing bad
Full chronicle for formal registers

Affection maintains the childish label
No detriment felt over spread of time
 Much loved warm glow over years enable
From such a simple utterance sublime

Listen to the mouths of babes uttering
Derive pleasure from simple stuttering
©David L Atkinson August 2012


We writers use our senses as sources of inspiration at times and the last three Thursday poems that I have shared have been inspired by the sounds made by my children in different ways. As it says in this one, which is written in the form of a sonnet, - read the last 2 lines!

Scifaiku

Did you get it? The title of the poem I published in this section yesterday 'No (Ape Calypso)' - ( ) = anagram. And today's offering without a puzzle:-

Isolationist

Each group is alone
Trusting is a chancy game
Fog of disbelief

Once again I am offering my collection of poetry 'The Musings of a Confused Mind' FREE to Kindle and Kindle app. This is for one day only Saturday 6th October. The collection is a first and includes thought provoking and educational opportunities. Some of the work is highly topical and other examples are intensely personal and I believe that there is something there for everyone to derive some stimulation from.
