    Friendy Interference

    God took the chewed end of the hookah
    Into His mouth and drew in.
    He exhaled,
    Filling the sky with many smokey clouds.
    Some were dense,
    Bursting at their seams,
    Plump as cotton,
    While others floated in a ribbon
    Whose tail soon disappeared.
    He sat back on his own white cushion
    And grinned.
    "Soon it will rain."

    The Sun,
    Not at all happy with this recent interference,
    Glared down at the silver-white masses
    that multiplied as She looked on.
    She would have to abide by His decision
    And allow this storm to happen.
    The once smokey white clouds
    begin to darken.
    A far away rumbling of thunder
    Can be heard.
    The sky alights with sudden brilliance.
    He offers the hookah.
    She turns her face away,
    Directing her attention

    Holy Hot Coffee, Batman!! Versions, lol. You might just have me beat on this one, no kidding. Mine should be up Saturday or Sunday - I hope. My other one I finished last night, but I'm gonna post them together. You've long since fine-tuned your particularly concise and vibrant style. You are a formidable wordsmith on every plateau! Lofty write!!



    Thank you, no this one was written about 2 weeks ago and i needed to, as you say, fine tune. Patiently awaiting your contribution....well, maybe not patiently...mlea

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
