~april Fool~

Poem By Theodora (Theo) Onken

April flipped herself in
Like a brand new paragraph
For i'd left off in March
And winter 'twas still the subject matter

The frost all but got me
Hypothermia of feelings
Once felt
Like coming into a heated June
My feelings they began to melt

But April flipped me in
Much like an April Fool
Vunerable and needy
Forgetful of what i had
Learned in school

And so another paragraph
Was formed
Along with the rain you did bring
Remind me-Mother Earth-
If you will
That not all flowers bloom
In the Spring

Aware that the showers
Are supposed to bring
Some Flowers that bloom in May
But ne'er prepared for
Story-tellers with eloquent words
That ne'er mean what they say

The flowers that later bloom
With brillance-aroma and Light
Take out the chill and hold on me still
During a most troubling dark of night

Great work Theodora...'April flipped herself in like a brand new paragraph' was a great jump start and 'Take out the chill and hold on me still during a most troubling dark of night' was a memorable finish! In between, I liked the vivid descriptions and your craft! Top marks! -Michael

(((This Thing Of Ours)))

In the twilight of this quiescent moment-
I peruse this thing of ours-
Querying this palpable abtruse connection-
Am i deluded or wrongly perceived by the stars?

(((After The Rain)))

I missed you the other day
When the dew left its diamond glitter upon the grass
And the squirrels and frogs were frolicking merry
When the silence of daybreak calmed


It was in the Dawn of new beginnings
In a field so full of you
Armoured bouquets of Love
Covered by Heavens baby blue;

(((Early Eve Of Remember))) !

It t'was in the early eve of Remember- -
Before twilight had come around...
Where i found you with a basket of love so true...
And in the air t'was a melody of new loves sweet sound! ;


An ancient river carries your name-
In silver caverns so deep-
A Princess sits crying her heart out-
In the depths of sorrow, she continues to weep.

(((An Aubade)))

</></Oh such bitter sweet regret-
Comes the breaking of dawn...
'Tis much too soon, my darling
For you shall soon be gone;
