Darrell W Penner

Darrell W Penner writes a wide variety of types of material from poetry and fiction to non fiction works and articles. He wrote daily articles for a third of a year in a blog as a personal challenge. Darrell is also working on two novels and a non-fiction work in addition to articles and poetry currently. He tries to squeeze in a little work on his fantasy world for gaming and fiction as well. Darrell's current personal website is The Gnomestead but he is working on a new one — or actually is considering how public to make it. You can find some of his more current writing published through Triond by going to Darrell's Triond Profile Page. For more info click here for Darrell's page on Collide as One.

The Cherub Face from the HeaderPoem Chain #1

Margaret and I decided to try something different and created a chain of poetry. We decided to see what we would come up with if one of us wrote a poem and then the other wrote what poetry that might inspire in us. Then the other would do so – and-so-on…

Since it was my idea I wrote the first idea. We decided I might start with a poem inspired by a “colour”. Perhaps because I am rather taken with starting the day with a Haiku I instinctively wrote a Haiku and started with my poem “Green, Life in the Raw”.

This led to this 10 poem chain:

  1. Green, Life in the Raw –  DWPenner
  2. Raw – magsalden
  3. Heart Fires –  DWPenner
  4. Passion Bleeds – magsalden
  5. Vanilla Plane –  DWPenner
  6. Tinge – magsalden
  7. Angels Winging From Earth to Sky –  DWPenner
  8. Not Forgotten – magsalden
  9. Flowers Wave –  DWPenner
  10. Prosperity Rain – magsalden

We each have our own style and so the poems while inspired by each other are very different from each other and cover a broad spectrum of topics.

I hope you enjoy this project. We plan to do it again some time in the future.

King of Golgotha Hill

I was inspired to write this while trying to help Margaret find her inspiration for a poem. She had a few words, “King” “Hill” and “Tree” and this is what my mind came up with. “Golgotha” is the name of the hill the crucification of Christ took place on.

King of Golgotha Hill
Fruit on man-made tree
Gift for all mankind
Lift us up forever

Night Dreams

Night

A kaleidescope of dreams
Parading for their purpose
Oft important it seems

Night

So full of vision light
Symbolic or direct
Where do you lead me tonight

Flower

Written passing something personal

The river of Gold turns to River of Scarlet
I lay in pain on the grass
Though stones of this struggle be round or sharp
They will pass I know
But as I lay in pain on the grass
I spy a flower
A simple flower white like a daisy
With a simple yellow centre
And near it a ladybug
I see a butterfly flutter overhead
I lay in pain on the grass
The pain is still there.
But I know it will pass
But the beauty
Now a flower
Now a beetle
Now a butterfly
Will always remain
I will forget the pain

The Sky is still up!

The sky is still up!
The ground is still down!
If you can still make your kids giggle,
There’s no need to frown!
