The Jealous Poet

I envy the poets
Who fill each line
With colorful action
Of every kind.
Who rhyme
On a dime
And open the mind's door
To so much more
Insight and thought,
Trapped and caught,
Than I ever knew was there.
It just doesn't seem fair
That I am left scribbling words
Whilst they are writing in colorful flocks of birds.

    Hi Ed, ha-ha I know this world is filled with jealous poets. HAHA love your first poem on the soup. , Stopping by with a nice, sweet Welcome to Poetry Soup. I will find much delight, in reading and in time become familiar with your poetry. At this very moment, I will greet you with the same smile, other poets passed when I first join the soup 4 years ago. I wish you the best when it comes to your writings. I hope you get to meet all the nice poets around here. Starting with me. SKAT :-) Please drop a hello and tell me a little about yourself if you like. I would like to be your newest poetry soup "FRIEND". Hugs* SKAT

    LOL! Thanks for the validation, BG. This comes from an entry in the Poem A Day exercise since April is National Poetry Month. Soooo many excellent submissions there, although I've been writing for a lifetime, my envy of so many got the best of me and it just rhymed out!
