DAY 8 - POEM - 5 - On The Train Ride Home
On the train ride home from the city
rocked into near slumber
liked a friendly spectre whisper
"You are fine, my dear."
Fine, as an antique tea cup nearly clear
in the meat-hooked paw
of the only now fleeing beast of fear
Before the laughter, hug and cheer
Rocked and alone
Allow this one single full fine-figured tear
 

DAY 8 - POEM -  6 - Ready Set
All around the
Banyan tree
Children
Dance in purest
Energy
Falling, feeling
Glee from
Head to foot
Incorporated in the
Jasmined air
Kitten-limbed
Loose they
March in
Never measured
Prancing
Quixotically
Released at
Summer
Time
Until...
Verily there comes
With ponderous ground shaking lumber
X-rayed, precisely placed
Yet brute as well, his smashing shout
ZEE, ALL OF ZEE RETURN TO YOUR SEATS THREE MINUTES MORE TIL SCHOOL IS OUT!

DAY 8 - POEM 7 - OH DID WE!
Pizza pie called in
To be delivered and paid
In full with first check!
 

DAY 8 POEM 8. - In The Birthday Chair
In the center
sitting there
powder on her cheeks
a flower in her hair
translucent skin reveals
cobalt veins tracking
one hundred years so far
As she looks about the room
and wonders
who all these people are

    Wow, you did great. I was patting myself on the back for completing one poem. Poem 2 was so poignant. I related because as I thought of celebration as a theme, I kept going back in my mind to the past celebrations
