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.
