Reading What I Wrote

Reading What I Wrote

Feed back about my work has been mixed lately, those that liked it read it aloud; those who didn't like it didn't. Once my poems were read aloud, those that didn't suddenly did. So, I post this advice: read my poems out loud, you might just hear something you didn't know was there...

On The Fly

Grab that thought
Write it down
Don't think about
Who will frown
Just transcribe the feeling
Without regret
Before your heart
Does forget
Because while pain lingers
Too long it seems
Joy is traveling
Through your dreams
Capture it while you can
Before it gets away
For it will change all too soon
Such as night turns to day

Ice Storm

Ice covers the nearby lake
Then disappears while I'm awake
It cracks, breaks then sinks below
The water's surface; now aglow
Reflecting sunlight throughout the day
Keeping less important thoughts at bay
For soon the sun will sink again
Bringing back the ice then
Crystals forming one by one
Playing their game, having fun
Before they crack, break, and sink
Leaving us again in the drink....
