To-be-savored!  ([It’s] called: SILENCE) – (something)-even-honored-by-birds!

“SILENCE OF THE BIRDS!” a poem December 10, 2018 – Monday

WHY! do you read this? [It’s “demon possessed!”] -No more inspired than “smut!”
Words-and-phrases-are-fairly-USELESS, (YOU) might-as-well-smell-a-cow’s-butt!
And-The-Bible (a-filthy-“rag”) – warns you: “Don’t let your ears be tickled!”*
When words are consumed and processed, they’re fairly-well “pickled!”
OK! OK! I think I can give you this:
Sometimes-they’ll-inspire – a-MODICUM-of-bliss,
IF-they-can-get-you-to-laughing, with your mind-in-a-“tizzy,”
Upset IN LOVE, reeling and dizzy!
Maybe in that – a word has some merit,
Like the riotous antics (pause) of a love-sick ferret!
BUT, IF WORDS BECOME ADDICTIVE – AND NECESSARY TO DO,
Addiction to LOVE – might be better for you!?
But DON’T take it from me – go-ahead-(and)-read – ’til you “drop,”
And dropping’s just fine! If-you-want: (all)-the-verbage-need-not-stop!
BUT JUST BE AWARE: THERE IS P A U S E BETWEEN WORDS,
To-be-savored! ([It’s] called: SILENCE) – (something)-even-honored-by-birds!

BLUE BIRD🐝

“SEARCHING FOR WHAT TO CALL MY BLUE BIRD!” a poem, a.k.a.: “I LOVE WATCHING YOU!” 🙂 The last day of April 2018 – April 30th.

How-can-I-describe you?- I haven’t got a clue!

To say (just) INDESCRIBABLE – has no “romantic glue;”

IF you were some music: You-are “sounds that I like,”

I’d play you, I would – and I won’t have “to mike.”

I can say you’re SO PRETTY – and-ADORABLE all day –

And still, something’s lacking – such words are quite gray:

BEAUTIFUL and GORGEOUS sometimes come to mind,

You’re CUTE, and I’m blushing, when-you’re-gazing so kind:

You’re ATTRACTIVE and SEXY – you-”pop”-for-me-too,

SCRUMPTIOUS and GLAMOROUS – I just wanna coo,

Like a dove or a song bird, out-back in your garden,

All-of-these-adjectives; I-still seek your pardon,

‘Cause you’re STUNNING and LOVELY and DARLING and HOT,

And still! All falls short, To describe what you’re got!

So, I guess I’ll just give-up; I-can’t find no word!

BUT – “I LOVE WATCHING (over) YOU, my DELIGHTFUL Blue Bird!”
