Hey! Good! I haven't seen anyone do one of these in a while. I need to work on one myself. Time? Where is it?

how about starting one with:

"time - where has it gone"

the music begins
old or young, all start to sing
whirling in the dance
as though feet had wings


and


time- where has it gone
still gaze after you forlorn
one night we both said
and I hate this dawn


this one would work as several stanzas of the mookuka format -  a more sustained piece
slight imperfections in my personality are NOT to be considered flaws but show that i am handmade and of the highest quality.

Very good, D. I haven't seen much activity with this form and I think that it makes for a nice format.

I love the one about music.

watch the stars be born
healing for your heart forlorn
hold you in my heart
you make me love's pawn

Windswept sands of gold
Where camels are bought and sold
Where pyramids rise
Ancient tales unfold
I felt it shelter to speak to you  ~Emily Dickinson

there is dust in rain
captured thoughts between refrain
some will feel cleansing
and some will feel pain

Oh run turkey run
the hunter grabbed his shotgun
don't let him catch you
it won't be much fun
