Not one to back down from a challenge–here is my offering for Day 4 of Poetry month:


POETRY SOCIETY POSTCARD (Photo credit: summonedbyfells)


Poetry takes a fragment of life

And makes it live.

Words give meaning to

the steaming cup of coffee

charged with starting another day;

the newspaper unfolded and read

dispersing knowledge needed or not;

to the wash on the line

soldiered together with clothespins;

the tomatoes on their vines

climbing to reach the sun;

the work day with its busy-ness

and camaraderie;

the evening closing in

to end another day.

Resting our weary bodies

For tomorrow–

Fragments of life.

      • We are going to have to work on that–but I warn you, I usually stay away from gambling–I think it is in my blood, and unleashed I would become a monster
