I know we have some great shutter bugs here on the site...I would like to do something called a poetry picture challenge. Get one of your most fav pics and post it over in the poetry room - myself and hopefully other poets will write a poem inspired by that picture...

We may even vote on a winner say around end of Sept time for each picture challenge if we get enough interest...

if not thats ok too I know this is primarily a discussion board not a poetry board...


Anywho, thx for the read.

My legacy


Few noticed my grace in life
As I flew unbridled high above all
In childhood dreams
Few, sadly few..

Saw my courage of flight
My determination
Etched against
The great ball called sun

Yet I flew
Mocked by many
Targeted by more
Against all the odds, yet did I soar

I smiled in the early years
Convinced, one day they'd see
The beauty & warmth
That clothed me as me

The currents became stronger
My once grace
Now tattered & torn
Then came the great storm..

Of age I was warned
I battled against it
For all I was worth
Yet I was age-worn & torn

I tumbled & spiraled
Out of controll
Summersaulting & gasping
How great was the fall

I now lay as remnant
A shredded legacy of me
One feather begging
Please, see me.

For I soared once in beauty
For all men to see
I now lie in obscurity
Oh please remember me

My girl left me there
at the 52nd fighter group
me and the bird
minus a sound

Her name was Tamara
a Russian Princess
with long blond hair
chained to the ground
she liked to get high
twas the only thing
in common found

she pulled off our feathers
rode off in our leathers

It was on ezboard, and I have been trying to find it at Gilead, and at the old hyperboard, so far no luck.


I came up with these two so far, I remember your poem, I wish I had copysaved it now.
