THE TRINITY AT WORK

Once upon a time We all know that was Longer than anyone can Remember or likely count Stuff went on then, lots of it God created the Heavens and the Earth Lucifer led an uprising took a third of The Angels and marched against God God threw the lot of them out Down to earth he tossed them They were still ugly and corrupt They made all they touched evil God is powerful He switched the poles Turning the world asunder, flooding it Freezing it into an ice age of longer than We know. It melted into... Sign in to see full entry.

IT IS MY BOOK AND I WILL CRY IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT

It is tedious Yet another child who-do Is it recipes you want With photos no doubt Not so, not so, can’t do it All I want at the moment is To stretch this child’s life from Along a clothesline from birth to middle She may not have been different However, she knew no body like herself She was born a five and one-half pound adult Soon but not very soon, she told all who listened She was just a short one of those big people Those who lived in her home, parents they were Not arrogant but adequate in...

DON'T APOLOGIZE FOR AMERICA. SHE IS FINE THANKYOU!

I wrote this some time ago, I did not see that I had posted it here. Hope you don't mine. Justi Today I am talking to you Not an in-your-face thing but, I’m not begging either. This is a little old fashion I know But like Mama said, “Do something or get down off that throne now! My Mama and Daddy were just ordinary people back then. Today they would not be that. They would be very special, yes they would be. You see they bought extra poppies on Veterans Day. That meant another dollar veteran’s... Sign in to see full entry.

FREEDOM IS A DELICATE POWER

I wrote this poem four years ago. I hope that in 2016 I can still experience the last line of it. Forgive me for reposting. I am not a prolific poet. God bless and keep all of you. Delicate chains wave to and fro Blown by the breath of God Gently in the wind they move Clink, a note, a key, a string of tones Weaves into melodies; music to my heart Sunshine plays a color symphony In the little glass beads on each chain First chain is green, then yellow, on to orange Then red, and blue followed by...

IT IS LATER THAN YOU MAY THINK

I didn’t know you knew that, who told you I did not, no it was not I, you are making me out to be a lollapalooza, a mind snoozer, at best a mental looser so it isn’t true Your concept of who I am, what I look like or even how smart or not I am does not compute You said you thought I was cute, well toot-toot In such matters past tense is a sure fire offense I know you and those of your ilk you think you are all there is and a bag of chips to you all others are dips You look for my shortcomings,...

THE CROSS IS EMPTY

THE CROSS IS EMPTY I didn’t notice the dirt until the cleansing began. Oh it was horrible, gut wrenching, the stench-the pain. A film of decaying filth covered lies self-delusion intimidation and always fear. Invisible tumors and open sores were all over from the practices of arrogant snobbery violent anger and self-righteous pride. My heart burst and spattered onto those I loved more than myself. They were dying or betraying me. I didn’t notice my dirt. I wouldn’t hurt anyone, I was sure of... Sign in to see full entry.

WHAT IS IT? OR IS IT WHO?

You played host to it a time or two and named It. Another one had It and named It accordingly. It has been in my temple for days now and I named It. I renamed It, I called It other names still It remained. It has to be a something it gnaws at my mind. It blurs my vision. It makes my skin itch. It fools my hearing. It steals my sleep, my peace, my joy even my understanding. Can It be a evil spirit? Can It simply be common depression? No It is too uncommon to be common depression. It hurts. It...

IT'S MY HEART YOU KNOW

This time of year its my heart you know The old heart is the senses director I love the sounds hymns and ditties alike I love the colors once red and green now A to Z I love the scents cinnamon, nutmeg and cedar I love children's laughter, clatter of pots and pans in the kitchen baking, roasting oh and cocoa and peppermint Face it I am in love and I wanted to tell you about it. MERRY CHRISTMAS Sign in to see full entry.

THEN WE KNEW EXACTLY WHO WAS AN AMERICAN

Today I am talking to you Not an in-your-face thing but, I’m not begging either. This is a little old fashion I know But like Mama said, “Do something or get down off that throne now! My Mama and Daddy were just ordinary people back then. Today they would not be that. They would be very special, yes they would be. You see they bought extra poppies on Veterans Day. That meant another dollar veteran’s retirement fund. They did not check the best charity for the tax return, no. They sought out... Sign in to see full entry.

KNOCK, KNOCK

Ah I saw her today, you know the lady I knew, that one who came into the store I had I was blessed, another lady came up and began talking with the first lady and I was freed from remembering either their names. Most things and people I know are just that, people I know. Some cases are much better you can use a title and those are easier to remember, like my pastor, I can call him pastor I don’t have to remember his name. I sure wonder sometimes who he is. Now my husband and daughter are a... Sign in to see full entry.

SKINLESS

Skinless This world has lost its skin It falls, plops and lands asunder There is no order only greed of direction The skin that held love has Disintegrated leaving no receptacles Little impartation even to wee ones The skin guarding money has been eaten Pain is the wrapper as if plain brown fits one and all Deception shines and glows in all darkness Anger is the order of the day Lying is called truth by our leaders The world is obese in corruption and It has popped its skin ©Johna moody 12/16/11 Sign in to see full entry.

WORLDLY ABSENSE

I’m sitting here lifeless, as the cool breeze is a callin’ On a midsummer’s night, as the stars start fallin’ In a self proclaimed heaven, just me and my darlin’ To have this much bliss, is simply appallin’ We’re removed from the noise that sweeps through downtown All we got are cicadas, and a few crickets around The thoughts in our hearts transpire without sound And the sights of starlight with the night coming down The minimal nuisance of a mosquito or two Are clad overridden by a marlin’s...

NUMBER ONE OF SIL POEMS...

Waffle House Blues Well I try to pull in to a park that’s too thin As my fender finds a rednecks old cruise The concert is over, I need to get sober I got the Waffle House blues So I stumble on up to a hot coffee cup As my waitress has faded tattoos And the cook is a pickin’ at something thats sickenin’ I got the Waffle House blues Then I start to order from a gal with a goiter My date she’s starting to snooze My crumbled old pack houses one cigarette I got the Waffle House blues When the food...
