Poetic Path

POETIC PATH

My poetic journey is nearing its seventh year mark. It began as my fingers walked over the keyboard, composing the first entry on my shiny new blog. I was surprised more than anyone when what my eyes saw forming on the screen was more like poetry than prose. I suppose the poetic words that danced in my head as a child were always there inside, but decades of dormancy were ended that day (as I sat with my laptop in a waiting room for jurors). My words have since Whirl’d me on a poetic path through gardens and cyber pubs, down poetic streets and back again. And I will be forever grateful for the friends (nay, family) I’ve met along the way.

Enough Pillows To Be Cloud Nine

ENOUGH PILLOWS TO BE CLOUD NINE

I truly
hate to admit my
guilty plea
-sure, to you
it seems silly, but to me
it’s simply divine.
