Rifle and Violin

Post  alitnobani on Wed Aug 17 2011, 18:37

Song Against War
By : Ali Taha Alnobani

© 2011 by Ali Taha Alnobani

Helicopters were over us
Noise and fuss
Yesterday with orchestra
And today in battle
My life seems like a shuttle
The violin that was touching my neck
Became today a rifle
The tune of dancing and love
Just now became blood and pus
Noise and fuss
And now behind a tree
Trying to press on the trigger
Feeling my daughter Julie
Calling me
Don't shoot
Don't shoot
Oh my God
Is this a rifle
Or a violin!!

Limbo

Post  BC Williams on Sat Aug 20 2011, 23:23



The rain falls hard from the cold gray sky
and her dreams swell sad neath her window.
The tears she weeps are gathering quick
and the sighs she sings wax yellow.
The room erodes in a flash of light
and the curtains speak in a surge,
and in this shell of clouded thoughts
she allows her soul to submerge.

©8.21.2011 by BC Williams


My word is RAIN:
falls, hard, cold, gray, sky, swell, erodes, flash, surge, clouded, submerge

Ah Pete, I guess I've failed to get my point across here again:-) Okay, you don't need to use the word 'dog'. You can choose ANY word you'd like, then write a poem in any style incorporating 10 additional words that are related to the word you've chosen. So for the word dog, it could look something like: DOG: bark, walk, fur, hunt . . . and so forth.

Hope this hellllllps!

Baby





Welcome to my crib
I’ve had a little change
My sister she got bigger
So they had a rearrange

I used to have a basket
But just to say for what it’s worth
The basket was only short term
Only meant for afterbirth

They tried me in a bassinet
But that was a bit of a jam
So as a temporary fix up
They stuck me in my pram

When I get to be a toddler
They will build me my own room
I think they are regretting
The recent baby boom

Grandma has a chair
When she comes to baby sit
And I need a changing table
And room to lay on it

So this is my new nursery
I hope that you enjoy
I wish that it was blue not pink
After all I am a boy
