There is no telling the things you might find



Picking a rose in a garden of Sundays Calling your name on a broken branch wind Looking for clover where weeds are not welcome Walking the bridge till its time to begin Dancing in puddles now filled up with laughter Running through traffic as cars speed away Searching for words in the headlines of morning Writing of moons and the stars on display Collecting my thoughts when I think I will never Painting a smile on a rusted front door Lifting a rock just to see what is under Shopping for clothes in a grocery store Looking through openings cut in the carpet Reaching atop lonely sycamore trees Juggling penguins, now where did that come from Asking a bird what it knows about bees Planting a bush in the depths of the ocean Baking a cake in a rooftop design Sweating the small when the big stuff does happen Thinking of beer when I’d rather have wine Wearing a frown in the moments I’m happy Pushing a cart with a wobbly wheel Lurking in shadows that form on the sunset Dreaming of things that are hopefully real Finding that all I have written is nonsense All of the verses above will now show When all I wanted to say was I love you Like in these stanzas I’ve written below Penning a poem to say what I’m feeling Wishing the phrases will reach to your heart Sending you hints of my steadfast devotion Scribbling fonts that we never shall part All that I am is now all that you make me There is no one that this man could love more You are the girl that I’ve wanted forever Eternally you’ll be the one I adore So there you have it, quite crazy but true Poetic ramblings from deep in my mind Where it is light with some dark in the corners There is no telling the things you might find
11/03/19 The reason I think this poem is Trophy Worthy is it is one of my favorite poems, because it is me. A good amount of fun and nonsense and a lot of beautiful love which is what fuels my pen. I believe my cadence and rhymes are very good and it was a fun poem to write. I think those who read it really enjoyed it because it made them smile and that is usually my goal when writing poetry.

A fantastic write Chris, poetry at its best. Clever and amusing though the penguins may not agree, being juggled isn't nice especially when one's all dressed up for the night. Love the words to your love, what a treasure. ~ Beryl

I agree w/Robert. A masterpiece. It is a brilliant poem, Chris, it really is. The incongruity of images in and of itself is worthy of this poem being labeled a genius write. You're at the top of your game on this one, my talented friend. Bravo to you. Much love and peace to you.

Hey, you should try it sometime, it's good exercise, those little suckers are heavy. But do it while wearing a tuxedo, it confuses the hell out of them. :) Thanks so much my friend.

Hi Chris, Your nonsense is just beautiful. Where is this girl? I enjoyed this poem of the heart. It was filled with a love that just leaped off the page. Someone needs to find that girl and tell her to read this labor of love. You are an amazing and gifted writer my friend. When I read you it just brightens up my day:-) Alexis
