A woodpecker pecked wood.


A woodpecker pecked wood.


Pointed in dismay
arranged to be sharp,
my sword moves
a plain battlefield
of bloodspotted ink
which will stay.

Stained by fools
who never learned
to break the
walls of prejudices down,
i frown in surprise.

How can I start
a life that's never begun,
where can i put
my big little toe?

Shocked by my
clodded
tabula rasa,
i break down
and cry.

The field is grained
and dotted
with gray, black
and reds,
on a sunny
display.

A woodpecker
pecked wood,
misunderstood
and then stopped
to learn.....
to be good.

    Beautiful work of art. One of my dreams is to publish my poems and novels when I become an adult. You are my inspiration to keep writing. I will always read your poems :) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
