Poem:

.

the weather has a profound force
one’s moods it does endorse

clouds and rain a feeling of doom
grey and black describing gloom

a calm starry night renders awe
magnified when viewed upon the utah

bright sunlight warms the soul
a creators vision to extol

rainbows and butterflies
smiles, to the eyes a colorful prize

equatorial deserts and muggy rain forest
nice to visit if you are a tourist

beware of the cold , the blizzard
accused of creating the lounge lizard

for those whose winter sports are euphoric
they need to learn the word phantasmagoric*

how to beat the weather blues
time to take a Caribbean/Mediterranean cruise

defeat the weather, put on a happy mood
for being able to put your mind anywhere, have gratitude

*phantasmagoric:  having a fantastic or deceptive appearance,
as something in a dream or created by the imagination.
having the appearance of an optical illusion, especially one
produced by a magic lantern. The Greek word phantasma,
meaning “image,” is the ancestor of phantasmagoric, a word
you can use to describe anything so weird it doesn’t seem real.

Nothing To It

All you do is sit down

at a typewriter

and bleed.”

Poem:

.

Huitain. French 8-liner with an ababbcbc rhyme scheme

.

the hum of Nature has gone
replaced by the engines roar

smog is something you can count on
graffiti and litter you cannot ignore

pollution is the only guarantee anymore
man will be the cause of his own demise

will the raven quoth nevermore
be wise, Nature will not give a reprise
