A sunset wasn’t done yet, puts perspective on an upset. Its beauty: at least some get

and can take away one’s breath.

A place (i more than once met) has a resource that runs wet. Especially with a sunset, it’s more than a fun trek.

A place (i more than once met) has a resource that runs wet.

Especially with a sunset, it’s more than a fun trek.

Higher than a bunk bed, bigger than one jet,

has a soothing effect, with the heart: it does connect.

Alternate lines:

Simpler than a sublet,

and brighter than blood red,

it could be one highlight of a fun trek.

Simpler than a sublet,

more reliable than unmet:

a sunset takes away one’s breath.

Curvy branch skyline and its critters are a surprise find,

like a carny ride that strikes and chimes on a dime.

Curvy branch neighbors are browsing the clouds.

Together they’re like music or puzzle note sounds.

Curvy branch neighbors find peace with the breeze.

Maybe they can be what their audience perceives;

maybe they can be what their audience believes.

While they might give the creeps, their potential intrigues.

Their silhouette leaves impression like it speaks.

Spikes with stripes or blades: they slice.

Light with bite knifes more than thrice.

Shadow Ballerina doesn’t care if her photos are blurry (since perfectionism gets in the way of her journey).

Shadow Ballerina operates in the clutch; she often leaves opponents in the dust. Having never forgotten the creepy touch, Shadow Ballerina doesn’t easily trust. She can blur opponents’ vision after throwing a punch. Behind the scenes, she sees through a bluff.

One of the most underrated poetry groups that has had its works published in a newspaper and recorded for a library’s poem of the month video series is the Peaceful Poets.

This group is based in Milpitas; hopefully people noticed.

The Milpitas Post and the Milpitas Library:

helped the group, making times more merry.

From May 2012 to February 2018:

I was proofreading for and moderating

the Peaceful Poets (with whom I shared my thoughts, poems, songs).

This group’s range of works and videos is at http://peacefulpoetsblog.wordpress.com .

One video (at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-pqf1z35g9U ) features four of its members.

It’s one highlight of many that I still remember.

If you’d also like to watch and listen to me in this recording,

I (Z.F. Thrimej) am the second one on it performing

from the times 1:13 to 1:31.

Over half of this poem is already done.

Noteworthy is this group going beyond expectations;

it did more than stimulate and catalyze imaginations.

Love, loss, experiences, and ideas: this group writes about and meditates on.

Its members also vent about and confront what’s wrong.

Sometimes we felt messed with, dealt with the excessive.

We coped by being reflective, writing many a message

not only about what annoys, but also our joys and our stories.

This group inspired others to create and use your voice.

I hope these poets, the library, and the Post continue to encourage;

poetry, writing, and creativity are ways to heal, learn, and nourish.
