What Words May Come?

Writing simple poetry, song lyrics and short stories has become so important to me over the past few years.  When I began my words were therapy for me though at the time I didn’t realize it.  I certainly never considered how impactful these words would become in my life and, from time to time, in other’s lives too.  What thrills me most is the feedback and how many different opinions and interpretations I get from one poem read through the eyes of others.  When I write the words simply flow without me getting too caught up in whatever theme may arise.  It simply starts with a line or sentence then blossoms from there.  I’ve been told it’s a gift, and while somewhere deep within me I believe that to be true, I wonder why it took so long to develop even as it continues to grow.  My grandfather was a writer, so perhaps that is where the answer lies.  Regardless, I hope you find some meaning, some smiles, some tears or something else worthy of your time here within these scripts.

God bless,

WHAAAT? a silly poem

Redundantly resilient

Repetitively ridiculous

Momentary flashes of red

Buoyantly bouncing

Bountifully brash

What is going on in my head?

Mindfully moiled

Mercifully miffed

Termination – ready to fail

Fitfully famished

Finally finished

Confusing to all was this tale!

In consequence did I fall to earth

To lay shattered into spheres

Broken wings cannot fly

Broken dreams

Broken tears

Image result for feathers

Once I danced below the stars

While destiny bid her time

Chances taken now regretted

Broken heart

Broken mind

Drifting without fear or care

While others envied, lowly

Tempest stricken for my vanity

Broken finally

Broken slowly
