A Few Words May Bring Joy?


in sought out stolen quiet places
I solitaire sit disturbing none

at laptop attempting to write
by time window day or night

a few words to bring joy wonder
or a tear to a few searching souls...

who need eureka words
to soothe their quest tumbling
grasp at meaning minds

beware banshee grey haired witch
bully control freak boldly invades
sought quiet places shrill declares...

in high-pitched piercing tone
communal spaces are for all
in ignorant need to distemper

sow succulent disharmony seeds
fruits of doom gloom peace prophets...
come world entering to salve dispel

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
