A funny / serious quick poem

Princess for a DayBy:J.D. Allenruiz    The little teapot whistles as the water begins to boil.She’s hunched over the sink enmeshed in her toils. The hot sweat rolls on down her face,And she wishes she was quit of this place. She dreams of being a pretty princess to be,A stunning beauty in a flowing white gown for the world to see. A knight in shining armor comes knocking on her door,All her dreams have come true as the little teapot hits the floor,If only for today.See More

A walk in the Park

Do you remember that day with the wind in your hair?You said “Don’t be so silly, I really don’t care.” The sun was shining so we went for a walk,We were so in love that we didn’t talk. We walked along holding each other’s hand.Do you remember the name of that band? It didn’t matter they had a great sound,It was a crazy beat that was floating around. It was quite late when we got home,We turned off the lights and unplugged the phone. It didn’t take long before we were in bed,We made such a…See More

A Kiss. another poem

A KissByJD Allenruiz  There was this kiss that was so special to me,It was just this once as you can plainly see. She came into my life one sunny day,She was so beautiful that I asked her to stay. I tried to run from all of my pain,With that one kiss, she wiped it all away. She was my miracle for the whole world to see,I couldn’t believe it could happen to little old me. Several years later she became my wife,So now it’s a wonderful life. ( Yes, most of that last line is from the movie )See More

a poem for my dad

On a clear sunny day’ in the merry month of May.Up from the sea he came, the sailor of her dreams. She waited patiently for him to sweep her off her feet.The fact that he did, she thought was so sweet. Downtown in a bar listening to a jazz band.He got down on one knee, and asked for her hand. They got married the very next day.Together they raised two sons along the way. Lying in a hospital bed 53 years later,He slipped away in the night to meet his maker. His family gathered round his bed with…See More

cherry blossoms in the park

Walking through the park I see, cherry blossoms falling from the trees. Gently floating on the breeze, their wondrous fragrance makes me sigh. With the sun caressing my face, they take me to a distant place. A beautiful woman with lips that tasted like cherry wine.                                                                                                    Her face I can still see, and what it meant to be home with thee. Like the cherry blossoms floating down. Never even making a…See More

a poem

Face in the MirrorBy:JD Allen  When you look in the mirror what do you see?Do you see the place where I used to be?Or do you see those days of futures past?Or things that just didn't last? When you look in the mirror what do you see?Is that a gray hair or maybe three?Do you see smooth skin or wrinkles to be? When you look in the mirror what do you see?Do you just stand and stare?Remembering when I used to run my fingers thru your hair?Do you stand there and cry?Remembering good times gone…See More

The little teapot whistles as the water begins to boil.

She’s hunched over the sink enmeshed in her toils.

 

The hot sweat rolls on down her face,

And she wishes she was quit of this place.

 

She dreams of being a pretty princess to be,

A stunning beauty in a flowing white gown for the world to see.

Do you remember that day with the wind in your hair?

You said “Don’t be so silly, I really don’t care.”

 

The sun was shining so we went for a walk,

We were so in love that we didn’t talk.

 

We walked along holding each other’s hand.

Do you remember the name of that band?

 

It didn’t matter they had a great sound,

It was a crazy beat that was floating around.
