More Poems…

I thought these were worth sharing:

 

Idle Thought

 

I am a poet

Sometimes, at least I like

To think I am

Then again words are cheap

And paper is just a waste

Of forest land

Because so much

Of what I write

Finally winds up

In the garbage can.

 

Still I sit idle

In a comfortable chair

Composing shallow lines

Of simple verse

That will never have a chance

To converse

With anyone but me

At least that way

No one can disagree,

And it seems good therapy.

 

I am a poet

Sometimes, they should see

No so bad at all

These fragile lines

Placed tenderly, thoughtfully,

Solidly on the blank pages

Replacing my dark rages

Of deep melancholy

With lighter hues, subtle truths.

Hope Despite Woe

 

Upon my word

I do believe

Somewhere out there

Shall be

The love that was

Never given me.

 

Upon my heart

I do concede

Somewhere out there

Could be

The man who should

Be here with me.

 

Upon my life

I do not see

Why such bad luck

Should be;

The men who could

Seldom look at me.

 

Yet, upon my word

I do still believe

Somewhere out there

Shall be

The love that was

Never given me.

I have been trading heavily on BlogShares today. If you have not looked at that I recommend you check it out. Pretty neat stuff going on there. I have stock in several of the people listed over on the side here, and of course you can always check out my blog on there. My growth for the month so far is quite good. I am still unranked though.

 

My stomach is still troubling me… if you are the praying type say one for me.

 

Smiles,
Jo Ann
