First Born

Anointed

blue ribbon shrine

pristine shoes

Daddy toe waltzes

bedroom sanctum

car keys

genetic guilt

default executor

Last shovelful of dirt

FOR COMMERCIAL SPACE PIONEERS:
 

Daredevils breathe fire

Loop-the-loop

Around the world

in 90 minutes

Wing walkers watch warily

Will they storm the barn?

Or buy the farm?

Note: This poem is not about any candidate or political party, just a comment about the constant animus of the political process.

Audacity of hope, nope, cope, dope

grope, Europe, mope

interlope, Pope, fallop

trope, tightrope, misanthrope

Morning star crests

Cardinal chalks wind

Impulsive stem defies frost

Some obscure divinity ignites

& in God’s image

I create

Remembering Neil Armstrong:
RIP in your beloved ocean 
 

Enough rock&dust shrines

Leave no deified relics

tomb photo ops

star dancing

Stay distant as Luna

Harbor in tranquil seas

of primordial dawn

NEW: Art Attempts

“ASIG”
by Audrey S. Rivers

I’ve added the Longer Poems section for your reading pleasure (and to prove I can write in more than 140 character spurts). 

I also play with digital art, thanks to the convenience, patience, forgiveness and delete function of the IPad and my Mac laptop.

I do NOT consider myself an “artist” in any nuance. Any freehand drawings I attempt pale compared to a pre-schooler’s etchings (or those sketched by captive animals as enrichment activities).

As I grow older, the creative muses kvetch at me to express myself in new and frequently in ego-deflating fashion. I attempted a dance class expressly as a fun means to exercise. Paired with a jazz company apprentice and surrounded by rebuking mirrors, I bruised both knees and confidence. My jewelry crafting ventures produced mangled necklaces and lacerated thumbs. Gardening yields drooped, oozing plants.

With the wonders of electrons and $4.99 computer apps, we dweebs can purport to some semblance of aesthetic acumen.

My dalliances with several art apps (I highly recommend “Art Set” and “Flowpaper” for IPad) attained some acceptable results. My “style” tends to lean towards Rothko or Pollock. I enjoy playing with the new color-block fashion trend in my “paintings” and dripping-dots-as-art works for the lackadaisical in me. 

Since Poetweetry serves as a creative writing experiment, I decided to embrace my inner “artiste” and occasionally add some of my etchings to my Poetweetry posts. Please let me know what you think.

Thanks for joining me in my journey.

Audrey

Adieu

A Road to Nowhere…

Line in sand

cross 2 foam kisses

Listen 2 gulls gossip

find anonymous messages in shells

Walk beach & sea fills steps

as if U never were

Whirlwind

Hurricane Ike slams 1900 Hurricane Memorial on Galveston Seawall

Wicked witch rides wind

passes, sheering branches

ghosts rustle atop roofs

ghouls howl thunder

cackle lightening

storm churns nite terrors
