Hmmm….at first you may think what an odd combination….
Not at all….I have thought about this…for all of 5 minutes…….
and I feel the two items go together like Peanut Butter and Bananas ……
.A little odd at first but then strangely satisfying a need you did not know you had…..LOL….kinda like love?........

I have noticed that many here express themselves through poems and songs and I figured
it would be fun to have a "gathering" so we could all get together and share (and drink)
like the big happy family we are…..(everyone say Awwwww! Big hug!)

Now some of you may be asking yourselves "What exactly is a Poetry Slam?"
Well according to Poetry Slam.com it's ……..

"Simply put, a poetry slam is the competitive art of performance poetry. It puts dual emphasis on writing and performance, encouraging poets to focus on what they're saying and how they're saying it. A poetry slam is an event in which poets perform their work and are judged by members of the audience.…"
Okay this is where the virtual thing comes in…since we can't see the "performance" part of the poem…..
we are just going with the poem itself and in place of performance I/We will give you props for putting the poem out here to share.

We are also going to change the rules a bit (yes again!) by saying that you do not have to written the poem yourself.
You may share your favorite poem (be sure to tell us the author even if it is Anonymous)
or you can even share a song with lyrics so fabulous that you feel they are poetry.
(Hey, we are really flexible here)…….

The point is that I want everyone to be able to participate.

So I am going to start is off by sharing some of my pulse poetry (see previous blog for explanation)Pulse Poetry Explanation………
Love_What would I do to have it?Sacrifice certainty? Embrace new feelings?Take a few chances?Let another into my world?Yes!
male..female..friendships..can there be?..just friends..or does the possibility for more always lurk in both minds..waiting
Fear_of taking a chance_putting yourself out there_getting involved with others_open the door, just a little_let me in Love
Your humor..quirky, irreverant..your smile..inviting, secretive..your eyes..see me?..your words..echo the words in my heart
Anxious...distressed yet eager...Wanting?...acceptance, approval, belonging, rapport, togetherness...is that what love is?
I WANT....when I read your words...I want...what?...to be where you are?..to know who you are?...to be what you want?..yes!
He is...funny and flattering and soothing and exciting and..mmmm...delicious and warmth..and all the good things..and mine?
How can I miss you when I have never met you? Never seen you face to face..never touched my hand to yours..still I miss you
comfort_I want to give that to you_distance prevents me from holding you, physically soothing you_all I have are words love
Wanna play?_get silly_laugh and giggle_have fun_forget that we are responsible Adults_Spin in the grass, fall down laughing

Oooops almost forgot to mention the TGIF Celebration……What can I say….its Friday and I think we should celebrate.

So when you leave your poem or your complimentary comment (hint, hint) on a poem…
feel free to tell us what you are drinking this evening………
I am going to start the evening with some Bailey's but I am sure I will be moving on to other libations as the evening progresses……

SO let the poetry begin…………………..

Love, Laughter, Peace and Blessings to everyone!

Good blog and concept.
Thanks for something new to do.


Duet on Iberville Street

The man in black leather
Buying a rat to feed his python
Does not dwell on particulars.
Any rat will do.
While walking back from the pet store
I see a man in a hotel garage
Carving a swan in a block of ice
With a chain saw.

Stan Rice

When the dragons grow too mighty
To slay with pen or sword
I grow weary of the battle
And the storm I walk toward
When all around is madness
And there’s no safe port in view
I long to turn my path homeward
To stop a while with you
When life becomes as barren
And as cold as winter skies
There’s a beacon in the darkness
In a distant pair of eyes
In vain to search for order
In vain to search for truth
But these things can still be given
Your love has shown me proof

SOMETIMES

Sometimes in the dark hours of the night
I reach for you. That space where you should be
So cold and empty. Pillow not even creased
With the weight of your head. Sheets not warmed
By your heat. Silent tears of aching desire
Fall unheeded alone. Heart pulsing with want
Need and sorrow.
Sometimes in the dark hours of night.
I dream of you. The sticky sweet of your voice
Echoes in my ears. Your scent soft and musky
Dimly remembered. The taste of your salty skin
On my lips. The velvet of your skin
Touching mine. Sweet pleasure of two hearts
Becoming one.
Sometimes in the dark hours of the night.

JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES

Just close your eyes and try to feel
My arms about you tight.
Just keep them closed and think you are
At home with me at nght;

Just feel my fingers on your thighs !
The way they love to roam.
Until they find your little nest,
And make themselves at home.

Then feel them search and find your breast --
It nestled in my hand.
Our loving done -- 'tis now the time
To enter slumber--land.

Just close your eyes and feel your back
Held close against my chest.
For that's the way that I would wish
To end the night and rest.

Just close your eyes and in your dreams
You'll sail across the sea.
Until you rest within my arms,
The way you ought to be.

Night....you ask what is poetry???
That is waaaay to difficult for me
Poetry is lots of things and every experiences it in different ways.
What I write may not be poetry to some but it is to me.

Dictionary definitions are...

Traditional poetry is language arranged in lines, with a regular rhythm and often a definite rhyme scheme. Nontraditional poetry does away with regular rhythm and rhyme, although is usually is set up in lines. ...
a form of art in which language is used for its aesthetic and evocative qualities in addition to, or in lieu of, its ostensible meaning. ...
Writing that formulates a concentrated imaginative awareness of experience into language chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response through meaning, sound, and rhythm.
There are tons more definitions.....

Thanks for your poem Night!!

Nice work everybody!

Treating the silence
like it's the love I miss
Hiding from self-righteousness
Breathing the lies in
choke on the truth you're hiding
a piece of puzzle that doesn't fit
Alone on a sidewalk
looking for a way home
Trying to find a face
but don't recognize my own
Taking my time with
an intimate knoose I'm tying
Careful what you believe
when the masses are lying


that's mine, a song I've been working on.

I'm drinking Guiness this lonely evening!!

ol' Slutwolf wanders
far and wide
what to eat?
He alone
shall decide
Wary travels
here and there
soulful search
for one to care
Age don't matter
anymore
just seeks "The One"
to adore
Peeks in here
then wanders yon
searching
ever searching
to beyon'
Shall it be
he always asks
or is it "tainted"
as in
the past?
Awww, Give peace
to a restless soul
Spread them leg's, Honey
and let me
"stroll"!
Beer, I hold dear
and wine is
"alright"
but what Wolfie wants
is You
tonight!

Okay here are the Lyrics for I want your Sex posting them for Straddle


There's things that you guess
And things that you know
There's boys that you can trust
And girls that you don't
There's little things you hide
And little things that you show
Sometimes you think you're gonna get it
But you don't and that's just the way it goes

I swear i won't tease you
Won't tell you no lies
I don't need no bible
Just look in my eyes
I've waited so long baby
Now that we're friends
Every man's got his patience
And here's where mine ends

I want your sex
I want you
I want your.....sex

It's playing on my mind
It's dancing on my soul
It's taken so much time
So why don't you just let me go
I'd really like to try
Oh, i'd really love to know
When you tell me you're gonna regret it
Then i tell you that i love you but you still say no!

I swear i won't tease you
Won't tell you no lies
I don't need no bible
Just look in my eyes
I've waited so long baby
Out in the cold
I can't take much more girl
I'm losing control

I want your sex
I want your love
I want your.....sex

It's natural
It's chemical (let's do it)
It's logical
Habitual (can we do it?)
It's sensual
But most of all.....
Sex is something that we should do
Sex is something for me and you

Sex is natural - sex is good
Not everybody does it
But everybody should
Sex is natural - sex is fun
Sex is best when it's....one on one
One on one

I'm not your father
I'm not your brother
Talk to your sister
I am a lover

C-c-c-c-come on

What's your definition of dirty baby
What do you consider pornography
Don't you know i love it till it hurts me baby
Don't you think it's time you had sex with me

What's your definition of dirty baby
What do you call pornography
Don't you know i love it till it hurts me baby
Don't you think it's time you had sex with me

Sex with me
Sex with me
Have sex with me

C-c-c-c-come on.
