Poetry! That Hidden Gem

I know i-ron pyrite ain’t gold

but

I don’t wizard nothin’ ’bout poetry

I write not poetry

call it poetry

 label it poetry

it becomes

a little bud

then blossoms.

Poetry!

I said

in the eye of the beholder,

and voilà!

poetry not

or maybe yes

either/or

I, poet is still born.

( Yep. it’s -g.w )

Lord have mercy, I have stepped into many varmint snares and viper holes while looking and experimenting, as I wander down the path of explorers, while on the road of Calvary. This narrow passage called The Way.

Scars? They’re only scars. And know more are to come. It don’t hurt. Silently I scream so the devil doesn’t hear and delight in the tip. Tears edge the rim but don’t overflow, ’cause my bottle’s full. Laughter billows up saving the filled cup before one more droplet joins in. Fortitude.

Curse God she said

and die.

Silly woman. Cover your eyes.

No need for you to see.

You stay here,

I’ll go there

and cover my ears instead,

she said.

 

[Note to myself: when I’m in a mood, don’t publish.]

[Note to myself-2: I’m in a mood always. moods keep changing.]

[Note to myself-3: Don’t publish. Ever.]

[Note to myself-4: I doed it anyway.]

[Note to myself-5:  know what the word ‘stupid’ means?]

[Note to myself-6: yes. it’s boiled vegetables.]

[Note to myself-7: no, thats ste–…… I. rest. my. case.]

Retired and On sabbatical (again, but not quite). More info available in 'About Me' on my site page.(There is a small square box with three little dots inside, on the upper right hand side of every blog page,at the right side of title banner. Click on those dots to take you to a "hidden" site page with more info provided by me, including "follow" button and "About me." I didn't design this thing.It came as-is.)Also WP has a mandatory banner at the bottom of the screen about privacy and cookies policy that blocks the visibility of a "follow" button that pops up under a "close and accept' of the privacy agreement. You have to click the 'close and accept to see the follow button. Things are becoming more complicated to navigation with hidden activations and complex instructions. Life and technology is like that. If something seems simple you're probably doing it wrong. But I'm left-handed so maybe it's just me.

  1. Haha! I can relate to the “in a mood” writings. I have drafts galore that aren’t published. People might assume me to have been under the influence of a mind-altering substance for some of the crazy stuff I’ve written, but really the strangest stuff comes out of my mind straight-up.

    1. Publish them now! Publish them quickly! You will become famous! Mind-altering substances? We don got no mind- altering substance! We don’t need no stinkin’ mind-altering substances. We have mind-altering experiences! Ha-Ha. Not only legal, but honestly earned. Mood release – needed, courageous, human. And it doesn’t even have to be in country western rhythm. It’s not a serious malady. It’s mostly fun while within the shadows at the edge of joy. 😉 But I do feel the need to get back to semi-serious writing. Too much play makes jack a dull boy. Just glad my name is not Jack.

      1. Laughing here as I appreciate the Treasure Of Sierra Madre reference! I use that one often, and in fact I used it in a recent blog entry, though I can’t recall where right now. I’m up to my eyeballs in decluttering a room and can barely focus beyond that, but need these little reading breaks to retain a semblance of sanity.

                    1. I viewed and commented that post. Great subject to use that quote on. I have always avoided Facebook even when it was growing in popularity and people were try to get me to “join.” Just always had a “bad feeling” about it I guess.
