I may be a mountain girl, but I am no Hill-billy!

Another Raspberry :)

Blog Posted:4/28/2013 7:28:00 AM
This one is soooo bad, I am embarrassed to show it even as a raspberry. I have no idea what I could have been thinking when I wrote it, and even less, why I chose to have it published. Here goes...

Elizabeth Ashley Browning

I knew Elizabeth way back when,
she found true love within her pen.
She lived her life a little bent, it's true,
completely abstracted, made up of all the differing hues
of the spectrum.
Elizabeth Ashley is not the Elizabeth you knew,
she lives only within my mind,
inspired by love, yes, inspired, it's true.
She married that pen.
I seen her one day, she had lost her pen,
with a rainbow of emotion in her pocket,
she went in search of him.
But found only loss and roses,
instead of that multidimensional pen.
Now, Elizabeth plucks away,
uninspired, at best,
looking forward to a day,
when the past shall be put to rest.
Still, she loves that multidimensional pen.

There you have it! I must be a loon, as crazy as they come! LOL
love to all, Catie
