"I never travel without my diary, one should always have
something sensational to read.......Oscar Wilde, 1891
April 10, 2011
Though some have suggested
I lend my thoughts to you,
writing in a diary
was never my thing to do.
It felt so strange to scribble
my thoughts, when I took the time,
that is, until I realized
that God gave me the gift of rhyme.
Now it seems that all my thoughts
have the same sounding ends,
and since I've joined Poetry Soup,
I'm making lots of poet friends!
So, if you will indulge me,
dear book of rhyme and reason,
I'd like to write you a couplet or two
or even a carpe diem!
Always your poet,
