A Way With Language


“Deep feeling

doesn’t make

for good poetry.

A way with language

would be a bit

of help.”


~ Thom Gunn






sad, glad

write the words

does it make sense





bugs ate the blossoms

nature cares for every one

pests need to eat too




happiness is a poem
feelings left open
stories to be told
opinions uncontrolled

from a to zed
the living and the dead
words come alive
ideas on overdrive

enjoy the effort
call it desert
and when it’s done
concede to fun

forever butterflies
smelly teas roses
affections displayed
hearts accolade

emotions showing
senses growing
read and write
connoisseurs delight

for good poetry
it was a way with language.
