Days Without Poetry



Days without poetry are like days without sunshine Our thoughts stay hidden and cold The world's not as beautiful and is lacking that glow Until we allow our love words to roll A day without poetry is so sad and without passion Doesn't allow our feelings to share We're not really able to express our desires We're sometimes too embarrassed to dare But poetry will usually do away with inhibitions We're free to use those flowery terms The kind that are used by the greatest of poets You too can sound like Robbie Burns Days without poetry are like days without sunshine But allow us to be happy and share Our feelings of happiness and absolute joy There's a feeling of goodwill in the air © Jack Ellison 2013

    You know Jack I equate this to my days of writer's block which happen frequently. I'll have long spells of weeks or more with nothing wanting to come out from this old heart of mine. Great job expressing that feeling in words! MC

    My poetry brings my little friends to life... The day would be sad without them... And without Jack to write off of... Where would I be?... Left with Dragon of course... LOL.... Dragon's jealous that I wrote my first blog with him in it and no one mentioned him in response... Poor Dragon! Gave he more of my make believe birthday cake and he was happy again... Food always distracts him you know... LOL

    I am amazed at your extreme talents my friend, and yes, a day without your poetry would be a dismal day indeed! I always look forward to seeing your two poems appear for us to read, always a joy to read it is too! I truly loved reading this enlightening poem! What a fantastic piece this morning! Great Work!!
