Thank you! I can see that this site is really helpful in straightening out all the rules and fine points of writing form poems! 

Well, we have a comprehensive REFERENCE SECTION which Tinker has meticulously compiled.

Fossorial lair --
I seem to have lost my feet:
my life is a beach. 🌴

My life is a beach

Down here l relish sweet peace

As the tide rolls in.

As the tide rolls in --
will there be a tidal wave? --
a gentle undertow.

Potent pull to sea

Giant tidal push to shore!

Sunbathers beware!

Santa soon to fly
right past my house in search of
good little children

What a delightful poem, Tink! Ah for the days when "we" were children, and Santa came to "our" house! I have one!

"Atheists"

 

Why do atheists

Like to thank God in heaven

For their unbelief?

In their disbelief,
they still hedge their bets
just in case.

I remember a long, long time ago when I was questioning what I truly believed, it occurred to me that it was a lot better to believe in a loving God than in nothing at all.  I chose to be loved.   Atheism has never made sense to me, why choose "nothing" over "love"? And if I'm wrong, the worse thing that could happen is I lived in grace created by my own belief. If I'm right I get the bonus of heaven.  It's a win/win.  :wub:

Merry Christmas!

I love your philosophy. And then why take a chance (or) what is there to lose!

l was not a believer, but l had proof. And also "before" l believed, the bible did not seem to make sense, but after, it did!
