a poet, a prophet, a pauper with a pen?
someday we may discover,,, can’t be sure just when.
words flow like magic, leading him home,
destination a mystery,,, traveling alone.
first, from loneliness, ink starts to flow,
describing the journey,,, to where we don’t know.
mind filled with worry, pockets nearly bare,
hoping he’ll recognize,,, when finally he’s there.
fun times, sad times, times filled with pain,
each time his pen gets busy again.
mission accomplished? not yet it seems,
one day maybe,,, for now he still dreams…..

“Teaching rather than preaching
generally obtains the best results.”
1 thought on “Am I the only one….. who enjoys writing poetry now & then?”
your poems are nice, but I’m waiting for you to write another book.
