    Day 1: Weather the fight

    spring is in the air
    ready to rumble
    full blow's
    and second wind's gust.
    as the brightness dims
    roses crumble -
    the rain falls like Frazier;
    the crowd of clouds
    clap like thunder -
    flashing lights
    lightning flashes...
    and all of a sudden
    here comes the storm.

    Day 2: The truth behind madness

    would I be mad if
    I used to drag,
    just to be drug

    if I hid myself
    just to find myself

    if I did everything
    left in direction,
    & wronged my actions
    to learn the right path.

    if all tried to scream
    through me, mouths-full
    so big I couldn't hear myself

    if the big picture
    was framed in front of me -
    & I decided to daydream

    would that make me mad?

    I am no mad man.
    I am sane & not vexed.

    the truth
    will fix broken promises
    & will stand above lies..
    but the truth
    will make someone mad...

    Day 3 (double dipped): Midnight shade-tree..

    the stars for yards
    arcs & dots
    twinkle behind the seer's lids.
    twilight has ripped you
    from your brightness.
    deep blue pastures
    haybells of feather'd clouds,
    & a half moon, for you sir...
    serving it's purpose -
    or lacking luster at dusk.
    mother-nature's breath
    caresses your leaves -
    bye bye, shade tree..
    goodnight.

    Day 4: 6571 days

    6571 days

    once frail,
    and still pale..
    these days have aged me,
    pretty well..
    it's bitter-sweet,
    in the sense of wine -
    yeah.. we'll go with that one.

    hour glasses
    seemed to leak in the center,
    tears and blood -
    one more than the other,
    still with equal meaning.
    laughs and giggles,
    rib breaking jokes
    & good times,
    we just wish they'd play back -
    TV land's re-runs aren't suitable enough,
    so our naked memories are the epicenter.

    so far i've come,
    on this journey, life's journey.
    along the way,
    i've walked
    ran,
    tip-toed around nerving obsticles,
    & jogged out of breath.
    it just made my
    legs and days, stronger than ever.

    stopping only temporarily
    brake dust that won't break,
    my wisdom accumulates still
    today...

    until next time..
    but for now, i'll live in this year.

    Really liking the collection.
    The 30-day series of poems idea is good. It gives no pressure to 'polish' with another person's eye in mind, or nthing like that, helping you(and me) just write. Thats what I get from these.
    'Mid-night shade tree' has a lot of beauty to it. I take it you are actually addressing the dusk, with he tree in sight. Pretty good descriptive yet expressive use of writing. I enjoyed it.

    You're 18, I make from the last poem. Yeah, thas what life is about. I loved he hourglass imagery. Really interesting and memorable.

    Keep em coming.
