Parm's Pleasant Pondering Place at TORC: Ah! Spring!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

I wish Winters reign was past and Spring would come!

I'm more than ready.

This Day is Ever Summer

Postby prmiller » Tue Jul 10, 2018 12:40 pm

With friends the days are summer,
all fresh and cooling green;
there are both shade and sunshine,
and wonders to be seen.
My time at TORC is summer,
with joys that are sublime;
though I shall bless the autumn
as well as wintertime.
What fullness come with summer,
as needful storms appear,
Content I feel in summer,
when I am with you here.

Blessings,
Parm :)

Christmas joys to all

Postby prmiller » Tue Dec 25, 2018 2:54 am

The time is well-past midnight,
thus Christmastide is here,
I shall awake in daylight,
to share in Christmas cheer.
For those who wake find this
my kindest thoughts to you,
and to this place and aegis,
a welcome word or two.
May you enjoy the gladness
that I have hoped to leave,
to find no trace of sadness,
nor cause to ache or grieve,
for it is my intention,
to leave my Christmas prayer,
in rhymes of my invention
my thoughts to show I care.
Let all the joy around you,
enwrap your heart with bliss,
and as a bard of Eru,
leave hug and smile and kiss.

Blessings,
Parm :)
Christmas joys to all!

The Quilt of Life

The threads of time pierce in and through
the memories we gather in,
each piece, distinctive from the rest,
evokes a sigh, a tear, a grin.
I have, this year, such memories,
that are as flowers, multi-hued.
Thus, when I seem my quilt of life,
what comes to mind when it is viewed?
I find a scent wafts through my mind,
I may hear music, feel the the rain,
taste the spices from a meal,
or touch the nettles from some pain.
The quilt is precious, but to me,
it has a power I hold true,
it gives me moments when my heart
can spend some time with friends I knew.

Blessings,
Parm :-)

The Journey

Postby prmiller » Sat Mar 23, 2019 10:25 am

Imagine then, that three-score pounds,
and then add ten, have left my frame,
I have good friends to thank for this,
(and one would blush to see his name),
but thanks to them, my less is more,
less strain, less, stress, more strength and speed,
less girth, less weight, but better heft,
farewell to foods I do not need.
Though I have said goodbye to those
who helped me travel paths unknown,
who need to leave me, for their paths
are roads they need to tread alone,
I honour them within this rhyme,
a poem I can send to bless,
for they have helped me love life more,
by helping me embrace much less.

Blessings,
Parm :-)
