What Makes Me Tick Contest

What is it that makes me tick
A hundred things could I pick

Love, or even the pursuit thereof
Tempts my soul to imagine above

Music has kept my heart inspired
I play and listen and never get tired

A good book can catch my attention
There are too many I could mention

A good movie every now and then
The last time, I don’t remember when

Trying to learn something that is new
Language and culture an example of two

If I need to pick just one love brings it home
But need to find my other half, so I’m not alone

    Unravel would be the ideal term for sure and thanks so much for your comment. Comments on old poems are sometimes very nice, because they give one a chance to revisit work and also show that a person is truly reading your work. Thank you again.

    I think this is my favorite one so far. Though I love them all, this one is more like what I would have said too, if I knew to do more than one single couplet. Congrats for your win!

    I know this comment is belated, and I do remember this poem, because It was one of Jack's rare comments on my poems lol. I don't remember all the details of the contest, but don't think I could write a single couplet about anything. I'm more of a 19 line kind of guy lol.

    Great uncomplicated self-expressive poem. I guess we all have our own lists of what makes us tick xx

    Yes we do, and I don't think replies four months later make very many people tick, but I want to thank you for the read and comment. I truly appreciate it.

    Well I guess this is from the days of the replies to comments not reaching, but now that I'm back I can't leave it unanswered. Thanks as always for your read and comment Linda, hope you have decided to stay after all.

    Gotta say, the things you mention are what makes me tick too! No matter the age or where we call home, we're all the same deep down inside! Kudos my friend!
