My Birthday Wish For You© by Felina Silver Robinson

When you wake today
The day that celebrates your birth
It’s a day all your own
Where for twenty-four hours
All that you want is yours
My Birthday Wish For you
Is simply all that you wish for
Is granted
Once I see the smile on your face
Once I see you kick back and relax
My Birthday Wish For You, has been granted

Picture Day© by Felina Silver Robinson

Standing at my closet door
Wondering what I should wear
For a few moments in time
All eyes will be on me
It’s Picture Day
Something bright
Something plain
Something pretty
Or maybe I should surprise them
And wear something wild and funky
I’ve been standing here close to an hour
At this point I’m closing my eyes and where my hand stops
It will be the pick of the day
Smile pretty and bat your eyes for the camera

Happy With You© by Felina Silver Robinson

It doesn’t matter what we do
It doesn’t matter what we say
When I’m with you
We tune out the chatter

When I’m with you
There’s just room for two
No one dares to intrude

When I’m with you
I’m more than happy
To tell the truth

When I’m with you
There is no right
There is no wrong
Just an escape ment for just two

Note to my new readers: About my “Poem Bursts” – I give myself 30 seconds to one minute, and then write what comes to mind. This is a fun writing exercise I give myself to come up with something different from what I might usually write. I hope you enjoy the outcome.


The Day I Wish Never Happened© by Felina Silver Robinson

I wake
The powers out and the alarm clock stopped
I have no idea of the time as I step outside
My cell phones dead
My electric car won’t start
The train is delayed due to a derailment
And buses are late picking up the slack
So I walk 3 and 1/2 miles to my uptown office
Only to find that the power is out and were off for the day
So I turn around and walk another 3 and 1/2 miles back home again
To find out now that there’s no running water til later that day
Oh how I wish I could just restart the day making this all go away
This is certainly the day I wish never happened

No Need for Shame Here© by Felina Silver Robinson

Before a time I was ever thought to be
When the land was open and trees were still far apart
When animals had the freedom to roam in the place they called home
Houses were affordable for working class
It’s still painful to say that there are somethings still shameful about
Natives of all kinds hang their heads low out of all kinds of fright
So they still try to stay out of sight
Too much time has passed
There’s no longer a need for shame here
Hold your head high and tell your story
Fight your cause and have your voice heard
Times have changed and you must now step out
Step out from the darkness and tell the world who you are proud to be

What I Wouldn’t Give© by Felina Silver Robinson

What I wouldn’t give
To lay peacefully by your side
With nothing much to say
Other than to ask you of your day

Instead
There’s homework to help with
Forms to fill out for school
Lunches to be made for field trips
And Laundry to do so you can wear your favorite things

What I wouldn’t give
For a nice hot bubble bath
With the sounds of soft music in the background

Instead
The sound of a crying baby
A husband home late from work
Looking for something hot to eat
When all is done I lay too tired to say goodnight
I lay down my head with only dreams insight

What I wouldn’t give
For a family vacation right about now

Your Eyes in this Place© by Felina Silver Robinson

I prance into this crowded room
Everyone glances at the same one thing
It isn’t me, but it’s you
Everyone’s eyes are stuck on yours
I think they wonder what someone like you
Is doing in a place like this
I’m hoping that my moves will draw their attention
I’m not accustom to others being the center of attention
This time I too find myself with my eyes stuck on yours
What is it about those eyes of yours that has us all so memorized
Whatever it is, I’m so glad to have run into your eyes in this place

The Drive© by Felina Silver Robinson

In the car and on the way to our destination
I’ve never felt such a calmness
The only sounds come from the songs on the radio
Each kept quiet by the anticipation of what will happen
What will we face when we meet our destination
This drive has us all waiting with anticipation
We wonder what will happen first, what will we do first
With so many others ahead of us it feels as if our ride will never end
So we look to the changing foliage to keep our attention until
We reach our destination
This drive has taken too much of our time
Suddenly, the car comes to a stop and we see we’ve reached our destination
And find that all was worth the wait

The Music© by Felina Silver Robinson

The music sometimes makes me wanna dance
I like to shake it all about
But only when there is no one else in sight
For they might catch a fright

The music sometimes makes me want to cry
When they tell my story for all to hear
It makes me want to leave this place
Before anyone can catch a glance
And capture me

The music sometimes settles me
And I find comfort in each word that it sings to me
The music in my room is a good friend to me
