Blank News

Nothing in the news today
nothing that I would say
important enough for my
attention span to pay
I don’t want to hear
or I already know
opinions aren’t the same
as facts that failed to show
So go along your way
and think about the sway
blown all out of proportion
when in the news today

Poetic Gratitude

80. Words by BlessMeMary
80. Words by BlessMeMary

Poetic Gratitude

Thank you for falling
out of my mind
tumbling through my fingers
and landing on the page
the words I never seem
to be able to say
For giving me a drive
and purpose in my right
pursuit of happiness
in each and every day
my art to paint my world
on paper canvas
with colorful words

Same Old(er)

Que sera sera by 6eternity9
Que sera sera by 6eternity9

Same Old(er)

Same old
same old
lost in the cold
wandering old
er
Not a child
anymore
but still amazed
filled with wonder
in my days
for magical ways
The stars up above
light up the sky
surrounding the moon
reflecting the sun
when the sun
is invisible
Rain bows
and life grows
all over the land
in the sea
winding and finding
seasons unplanned
Time and dreams
playful things
never the same
twice
yet still
the same

I’ll be Blank

Dove by TasheenaS
Dove by TasheenaS

I’ll be Blank

I suppose
as I grow old
my heart this knows
my brain won’t hold
on to everything
I’ve ever known
Some will go missing
as how I’d grown
when’s and where’s
will fade away
Not just yet
but in those days
I’ll be frank
and like the dove
I’ll be blank
of all but love

Solitary Reflection

life begins again by mirror-rim
life begins again by mirror-rim

Solitary Reflection

To be alone
for just awhile
let the dust settle
and try to smile
is nothing out
of ordinary
Sometimes it’s
just necessary
a little peace
and quiet time
reflecting on
the rhythm and rhyme
the words
the heartbeat
the sounds
replete
Lost in
happiness
or life in
sadness
Just hours
and days
passing on
by the ways
We live and love
dance and cry
holding on
and wonder why
it all is…
