Poet Petals


Once chance did happen-by my dwelling
Found within it some thoughts distilling
Sat a spell
Listened well
Savoring a few it found compelling

Chance seems never to stay around long
It’s always been a mere tag-a-long
Ideas smitten
Went unwritten
More petals in the winds of poets’ song

    Hi Debra, Just one of those spells I guess. I hope I get back on the train soon. Thanks for friendship. :) May the clouds hang up above a little longer. Till the memory becomes a little stronger. :)

    So nice to know theree are others who have to "get it down" before it disappears. It happens all the time doesn't it Deb and so frustrating especially when my mind works at night and I|'m too lazy to turn on the light. Well, you have company! Love, Elizabeth

    Beautiful poem. It is rather mysterious in a way. Thoughtful, unique...

    Drifting phrases of passion and pain. Dance on the petals in the soft morning rain. Casting spells of silken gray. Lost on the vine at the break of day. Hello Debra. :) Good luck if for a contest. Hoping you end up with a huge boquet. :)

    I hate to be on the lawn mower and a poem really hit me hard. I know it's nuts, but I've started carrying a pad and pen every where I go. I mean everywhere. Because, life is where you find the poetry. Wrote you an answer in your footle blog. Brian Strand has the last word. He is the person who invented the footle.
