I wish I was (Inspired by A. Lennox “Why” and You): A Romantic IMprov Sonnet

December 31, 2009

 I wish I was
the brush on your face.
 The touch you place
 when noone else does.

What you see
when you close your eyes,
when you heave sighs…
I wish it was me.

It’s grand 
to know what you feel;
when you reveal,
 to understand.

That why I wish I was,
not knowing why: just because.


Birgit Didn’t Know: A Revolutionary “Thank You” Poem

December 31, 2009

Thirty years ago,

she told a friend we both know:

(or words to that effect),

after I’d kissed her.

(I couldn’t resist her).

Three decades now lay behind;

I talk to her, and find

those words were in my mind.

But, she says, I shouldn’t care.

The words were wrong;

the sentiment was there.

Then she speaks of “fierce intellect”,

just matter-of-fact, not flirty.

Now I think: “Oh, my heck!”

And I’m good for another thirty.

On Being an Enthusiastic Passionistro: Romantic IMprov Poem

December 28, 2009

When you’re an enthusiastic passionisto,/
you throw/
your soul,/
and heart,/
and every part,/
toward that goal./
And when it’s rebuffed,/
or faulted, /
or criticized … /
you die.

To someone who’s never gotten poetry: A Revolutionary IMprov poem

December 27, 2009

I’ve written several poems for you.
Contexting poetry;
at least one Haiku.
and now, if you watch, and see,
you’ll discover even more
from me.

Technology Blews Disrupt Great Discussions: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poem

December 26, 2009

Discussions left 2 chance/
about vulnerability/
and big girl pants./
Technology moves/
with mysterious agility/
2 throw off our groove/
2 no what was bought/
or thot!

Creating our own Kismet: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poetry

December 26, 2009

We create our own kismet/
fueled by what we desire./
Boredom drives some 2 seek/
Others get thoughts deep,/

Contrasting Wake-up Texts: A Romantic ConTEXTing Poem

December 26, 2009

Did you like the subtlety/
of my wake-up poetry?/
Or, being less demure,/
would you prefer,/
in your poetry,/
that I write,/
more graphically?

Slow Canoe Haiku: Romantic ConTEXTing Poetry

Paddling slowly,/
One sees and feels more, but risks/
floating back downstream.

Slightly Overweight Guy Remembers: Romantic IMbic Poem

December 22, 2009

He wasn’t a relic,
nor like Tom Selick.
A little overweight,
but only slightly out of date.
He wasn’t the most beautiful
she’d ever seen.
But, if it mattered,
he remembered:
