    I LOVE A MAN
    by lovenotes_from_carolyn
    I love a man who's both caring and gentle
    He's thoughtful and sweet, and he's so sentimental
    He's stubborn as heck,  but I really don't mind
    We balance each other, yeah we're two of a kind
    I've loved him forever, well beyond these Earth years
    And together we share all our joys and our fears
    He's quiet and timely, I'm chatty and late
    I'm calm and I'm patient, he can't stand to wait
    So handsome is he, with his eyes of bright blue
    And he's got a good heart, always steadfast and true
    It hasn't been easy at all in this life
    But together we've faced all the turmoil and strife
    There are challenges plenty, life's a long, bumpy ride
    So we take things one day at a time, side by side
    All the while, I will dream up, manifest, and envision
    A harmonious life, born of mutual decision
    Oh I'll love this man for always and ever
    He's the light of my life, he's my grandest endeavor
    From this world to the next, 'til the end of my days
    Love him, I shall, in so many ways.

    TIME
    I praise thee, blessed passage of time
    Like a healing balm, you soothe us
    And indeed, you can assuage any sorrow
    Oh time, you heal what ails us
    And thereby offer us a better morrow
    Your noble ways are so very sublime
    I wish to thank thee, dearest time.

    Like the rarest rose
    I bloom for your love alone
    You sustain me, like the sun.

    Miles apart, we are
    Yet our hearts are ever near
    Our love endures forever.

    A HALLOWEEN PLIGHT
    by lovenotes_from_carolyn
    When the wayward western winds blow by
    All Hallows' Eve is surely nigh
    When spirits spook and zombies haunt
    And witches cackle, tease, and taunt
    As the undead crawl out from the grave
    I beg of thee, your soul to save
    Turn out thy lights and lock the door
    And hear my words of what's in store
    A dreadful night, that's fraught with woe
    The kind I hope you'll never know
    For on this night, the dead have powers
    As amongst us they walk, for 24 hours
    So stay at home this fateful night
    And say your prayers by candlelight
    Keep out of sight, let the terror unfold
    Whilst the world grows dark, and oh so cold.

    STORY OF THE SUN
    by lovenotes_from_carolyn
    In a time long passed
    That few now know
    The sun grew boastful
    Of her glow

    To the moon each night
    She was told to submit
    But to this, her ego
    Would not permit

    By morn and onward
    She'd cast her rays
    Emblazing mankind's
    Nights and days

    Never once making way
    For the luminous moon
    So the world could sleep
    And lovers could swoon

    Proud, she was
    Of her celestial fire
    That all the Earth
    Did praise and admire

    But a fool she was
    To brag all about
    For there came such a day
    When her fires went out

    Furious was she
    When she came to grips
    And learned that she
    Had been eclipsed!

    A lesson hard learned
    But one she learned quick
    If she shined for too long
    She'd become weak and sick

    And the moon would eclipse her
    With all of its might
    For the sun rules the day
    But the moon rules the night

    Thus she banished her ego
    Thereafter forever
    For none shine alone
    We all shine together.

    Tanka: 5/7/5/7/7
    When western winds blow
    Wanderlust assails my soul
    The travel bug bites
    Soon, I prepare to set sail
    So much beauty to behold.

    DREAM QUEST
    by lovenotes_from_carolyn
    The westerly winds are a'blowing
    Blazing trails through the dirt and the dust
    As I'm struck with a fanciful feeling
    The travel bug known as wanderlust

    Perhaps I'll set sail on the ocean
    And arrive in the land of my dreams
    A place where the sun shines all day
    And the night is lit up by moonbeams

    Or maybe a trek through the jungle
    Where Earth's wildest creatures are heard
    And the brightest of colors are seen
    Adorning each beast and each bird

    I could always hang out by the ocean
    Taking in all the sun and the sand
    Footloose and fancy free
    Not a care, nor a single thing planned

    The mountains are calling my name
    I hear their voice loud and clear
    And oh how they tend to beguile me
    I'd stay with them year after year

    Maybe I'll flee to the forest
    And seek out the solace of trees
    I'd listen and learn for a while
    While ever refreshed by the breeze

    So many places to go
    The choices are endless, it seems
    Perhaps I'll just take a brief nap
    And visit them all in my dreams.

    Whilst perusing all my imperfections
    I found an ever growing collection
    Some born of joy, some born of tears
    A mishmash from throughout the years
    At first I judged them ruthlessly
    'Til a sudden insight set me free
    Be they good or be they bad
    However silly, however sad
    One truth remains, irrefutably
    And so the case in point, you see
    Is that each flaw doth make me "me"
    Thus now I view them appreciatively
    Alas, here ends my mini lesson
    My friends, please don't go second guessin'
    To thine own self, may each be true
    And never begrudge what makes you "you."

    Nostalgic Notions
    by lovenotes_from_carolyn
    Nostalgia got me going
    On a voyage through my mind
    Now I'm fondly reminiscing
    While my past is on rewind

    I'm ridin' waves of whimsy
    On the sea of memories
    As the visions I hold dear
    Start blowin' past me like a breeze

    All the people that I love
    All the moments, good or bad
    Treasured times with both my parents
    Hey, I love you mom and dad!

    Things I thought had been forgotten
    Are safe and sound, inside my head
    Like the first time that I saw you
    And everything we did and said

    It's a never-ending ocean
    It's a timeless reverie
    It's the fabric of our lives
    The sweetest serendipity

    Yeah, nostalgia got me going
    On a voyage through my mind
    Gonna savor every memory
    While my past is on rewind.

    A work of fiction (with a bit of my corny humor there at the end), for the personification challenge. ����

    GRAVEYARD OF MEMORIES
    by lovenotes_from_carolyn
    There's a graveyard of memories
    Lurking in my mind
    And it won't leave me alone
    It won't leave the past behind

    It whispers all my what-ifs
    As it fills me with regret
    While purloining all my peace
    Because it won't let me forget

    It haunts me with the visions
    Of the life I could be living
    I've begged for it to stop
    But it's cruel and unforgiving

    Like a ghostly apparition
    Ever present in my head
    It shouts the shoulda, coulda, woulda's
    Every night when I'm in bed

    Though tormented and tortured
    I cannot help but smile
    For none of this will matter
    When old age makes me senile.
