    With Gypsie Luck, My Own Weaken Steps Retrace

    I walked in shy shadows leaving not a trace
    dawn birthed winds carried a rose-fragrant smell
    pleased, accepting what is owed, no disgrace
    rivers of joyous happiness, I could not tell.

    After illumination, shadow was to pass
    I walk forward to find that, my paradise place
    I was not born to be an ordinary lass
    and with Gypsie luck, my own weaken steps retrace!

    Hold this thought, the future may even more hurt bring
    tho' no cloud could it powers follow to defy
    and the flaming desert provides its scorpion stings
    I see Gods have given me a beautiful sky.

    This heart, this soul, flies forth into eternity
    whilst time flies onward into its infinity
    whilst hope promised me happiness and much more
    And truth truly is, love promised a huge score.

    Robert J. Lindley, original 1980
    16 verse sonnet,
    Rhyme, new 2023 Aug. 02

    Note: This was as much as I could remember of an older(early 1980's) and much longer poem that was composed back then. The original was quite a bit longer.

    There In Morning Sun, Hope Circled Enticing Dreams


    From inside gaping jaws, golden honey slow drips
    its taste as if bitter hell came with deadly judgment
    life turned into a bevy of sunken ships
    with the dried up bones below a sadden statement.

    With solid granite illuminating moon 's glow
    ironclad hills buried secrets sadder mysteries
    impropriety ran in and melted wicked snow
    starving for more people ate from empty granaries.

    The wicked angels flew about on leaden wings
    watching for the innocence of the golden truth
    dawn's light erupted brought the small songbirds that sing
    for hot romance and the vanities of our youth.

    There in morning sun, hope circled enticing dreams.
    Father time gave its fruit to fill the icy streams.

    The Modern Menagerie

    one sleeping greyhound
    circus clown with two right shoes
    hopeless, drunk soldiers

    Than The Grand Illusions Of Those Paradise Shores

    I that dares the purple sunlight to ease my soul
    splinter and enter this old, discontented heart
    all the mistakes, little sins that takes heavy toll
    worrisome the most was the quite unsteady start
    the shy lad that saw the great frosting on the pane
    the midnight calls and the mornings promised truth
    the eerie screams, wondering am I really sane
    ah but, so goes the hard mysteries of wild youth
    did great Achilles disapprove of how he died
    the unusual poison sent into his heel
    was true that some Greek warriors actually cried
    and the gods laid on his fleshly grave a gold seal

    O' truth does thy great powers always give us more.
    Than the grand illusions of those paradise shores?

    Robert J. Lindley - Sonnet
    composed on my 21st birthday
    March 5th, 1975

    Note- I had completely forgotten this poem other
    than a very vague memory that I wrote one back then

    Short Summer Vacation And Schools Are Out

    one old red tractor
    bushel of corn at market
    kid flying a kite.

    Blistering Hot August Day On The Farm

    humid and blue sky
    life oft sucks, don't ask me why
    seven ducks, one pond

    Robert J. Lindley
    haiku

    Note:
    This was written today -8-13-2023, born from a memory dredged up from 1969.
    And that farm life that at age 15 I so dearly hated.

    Sometimes When The Good Life Is Very Hard

    a good solid hello
    life never is easy
    Christmas brought us snow
    these dishes are greasy.

    farmhouse painted bright red
    barn and horses good
    chickens clucking to be fed
    timber in the woods.

    her heart is broke
    no more sweet letters
    she gone no joke
    she was my betters.

    Robert J. Lindley

    Fighting To The Last Resort

    Dawn's Calyx Woke Her And She Saw Pink Explosions

    Dawn's calyx woke her and she saw pink explosions
    As if hot flaming rays across the window sill
    She woke me, I was brainstorming some implosions
    Laughed together, love was in the pinkest pill
    But day cried out, I am now tantalizing you
    Your hearts are combining but my golden rays shift
    Radiant glazes that give you more than your due
    I work with love, in tandem we paint in to uplift
    At the beach morning sun again touched our souls
    As the ocean's strong waves washed our lazy feet
    We marveled, life astoundingly joined our goals
    And it must have been Heaven's lovely will we meet.

    That day, in the afternoon we vowed to wed.
    That glorious night, we slept in a silken bed.

    Her Luscious Lips A Tantalizing Treat

    A gust of cobalt blue winds grace her face
    Brazen black hair outshines cerculean sky
    She that dances forth with such princess grace
    As if she were angel about to fly
    And the woven gleam from those big blue eyes
    Her luscious lips a tantalizing treat
    Holding her so very tight as red sun dies
    I pray true love never know its defeat
    Her smile, beautiful as a floating swan
    She that walks with the air of princess divine
    She my Bathsheba I her loving Khan
    And our life, our love making tis so fine

    On silken sheets our bed bursts into flames.
    Our life is true grand, as we play no games.

    Robert J. Lindley, Sonnet

    ( A 6 verse poem , one quatrain and one haiku)

    (1,)

    Our Grandmother And Her Lime-Green House

    Her garden a fantastic roses red
    Her beautiful house a lime-colored green
    On June sixteen she turned a young eighty
    That same night she drank whiskey before bed
    Woke next morning happy with a clear head
    She, my grandmother, so stubborn and mean!

    Robert J Lindley,
    Rhyme

    Saturday Morning Going To Chess Tournament

    Put my engineer boots on these big feet
    Rising early to my breakfast eat
    Luck is with me now, in fact over-due
    I win that tournament, will not be beat.

    Robert J Lindley
    Quatrain

    Today Is Going To Be A Very Busy Day

    If the freedom of speech is taken away
    then dumb and silent we may be led,
    like sheep to the slaughter.
