A Realization

This writing a poem a day thing

is getting on my nerves.

Pooh said he was a Bear of very little brain~

I call myself “a poet of little merit”~

Pooh was wrong~

But I was right!

Realizations can be bliss. What have you come to realize?

  1. I’ve just realised (obviously slow to learn) that you are a poet with wit and humour 🙂

  2. I like your poems, LouAnn! So there!

  3. I had to laugh.. sorry.. love your honesty 😉
    i’ve written hundreds of poems and no way on God’s green earth I could write one a day.. I’d go loco..

    • I seem to be able to identify with loco — I feel another poem coming on………..(lol)

      • haha..too funny… loco, poco, coco

  4. Lou, at least you’re expanding your creative flow – that’s a good thing. I’m not good at poetry — this I know about myself and I’m okay with it, but I do like reading it from others. Like yours. Happy weekend, friend.

    • it is a different way of writing — I am still going for the flow–glad you like reading it –happy weekend my friend–hope it is a good one

  5. The poems you write are lovely and are ‘you’… This one today is ‘cute’… I’ve come to realize that sometimes that sometimes the harder I try to ‘fix’ something the worse it seems to get…I have to stop ‘trying’… and it’s not bliss!…Diane

    • I know what you mean–and if my poem is cute, I will take that as a big compliment – I like cute

      • It most certainly is a compliment..when would you deserve anything else but…With Pooh in it ….that’s why I called it cute…Diane

      • I love Pooh – unequivocably

  6. Oh I think you have merit!! Come on now.

  7. A poem a day–impressive. You;re almost half-way there.

  8. I have huge respect and admiration for you in keeping up with this poetry thing. It’s definitely harder than it looks. But I have realized that your poems always have my kind of humor so that’s all that matters to me. 🙂

    • I am glad you recognize the humour–some who do not know me as well as you do, do not 🙂

  9. I wouldn’t even attempt poetry, so you are way ahead of me, and I have been enjoying your poems :). As for realizations, I have come to realize that life is too short to worry about all the things I usually worry about, so I am trying to worry less and enjoy more!!

    • I will join you in trying that–but it is hard to stop worrying isn’t it–I find chocolate helps and mystery photo

      • I’m so glad I help a little bit 🙂

      • you help more than a little – you lift my spirits!

      • I will have to read that comment to my hubby. Just today he was bugging me, saying that I was bitchy and negative, but that’s just because he’s a man, and men do stupid things LOL!! Am I right or what? I made sure that I told him that I have many blogging friends who say that I am very happy and positive :).

      • men – can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em–sometimes they just don’t get it and we need to enlighten them

      • You got it sister!! 🙂

      • ha ha — they just do not understand us–and we like it that way!

  10. Love your quirky poems, LouAnn. 🙂 I have come to realise that life is way too short to see all the places I want to see.

  11. I think you deserve a pat on the back for entering into the mysterious realm of poetry in the first place. Poems have always left me with a throbbing headache and a puzzled look on my face, so I couldn’t tell you what’s good and what’s not. But I enjoyed this one and my brain doesn’t hurt at all!

    • I like poetry that does not hurt my brain–when I was in university much of the poetry hurt my brain

  12. 🙂 I love any quote from aa Milne, especially in a poem. In my head, I refer to myself as a bear of very large butt..

    • you are adorable–I love Milne too, and all his characters and their pithy sayings
