If I write a poem, will you come?

Since it seems most only comment when I write one of my feeble poems......


A Novice Writing Poetry

With fine linen paper
and pen in hand
a spirit is wafting
near.

The first mark from
gnarled fingers
touches lightly with
fear.

A phrase is begun
another line
appears upon the
page.

A dotted eye is
watching here a
novice crossing
tee.

Time is out watching
waiting to see
a poem without an
end.

Char? I never again want to hear you refer to your poems as "feeble". I enjoy them, I applaud you for writing them, and good for you for posting them.

Okay? Okay. :)

Hugs, Beth

Nice poem and true. I think writing is like that often, a word spills out, then a phrase and suddenly a map is drawn.
