Colleen’s Weekly #Poetry Challenge # 36 – HAPPY & SAD





happy memories

a sad… sad day… Charlie

my parrot flew off


happy dancing

waves crash… sand glistens… hark gulls

sad call… death at sea


My apologies to all, for the more I ponder on this weeks Colleens challenge, the more emotional I become. I will come back to this week, but for the moment the poem inspired from the prompts and an article by Devon in Africa  is my offering. Let us all give peace a chance.


Sadly the free people of the world put the wrong people in power.
To late we realise the error of choice, bad power, people devourer

To late instigators of war, hate, evil, impose their ways on people
Come on free people of the world make it known were not feeble

We don’t want war, hate, fear or evil to rule our wondrous planet
So next time we choose our leaders let us mandate them to ban it

Happiness, peace,, love for each other, empathy for the needy,
Its all out there for all to share, wars wont set us free, believe me

Mick E Talbot 2017

Inspired by, Devon in Africa, his/her article, and by Colleens Chesebro’s, prompt

Happy and Sad

I thank you both

  1. Aww, Mick. I am so sorry to evoke emotions. Never my intention to make those thoughts worse. Just know we are all here for. Your poetry is always a joy to read. I’m sending you huge hugs my friend. ❤

    1. Many a sad tear rolls down my cheek
      I’m usually strong, yet now so weak
      Blame not yourself for my dilemma
      All this sadness, my soul doth tremor
      Terrorist, cowards, killing the innocent
      Abusing God in His eyes blatant, insolent
      Two wrongs have never made things right
      To help create world peace, my true plight.

      Thanks for the HUG, you take care,
