Insignificant Artifacts ~ #poetry #NovemberWriting


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

What once held treasure long ago

Stands empty, surrounded by moss

A pot made of clay, filled with dismay

The garden, surely feeling its loss

An insignificant artifact, they claimed

Twas tossed aside, thrown away

Til it returned to its place, adding its grace

No longer a vessel, becoming passé

A Hint of Winter ~ #poetry


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

The chill in the air, ever so slight

A hint of winter’s calling

Barren lay the autumn trees

Their leaves no longer falling

The smell of fires burning

Lovers, warm beside the glow

Crystals form on window panes

From the touch of newest snow

Frosted evergreen needles

Red berries shimmering bright

Seasons changing once again

Ever so quickly, overnight

Bamboozled ~ #poetry #NovemberWriting


, , , , , , , , , , ,

When all else fails, and life throws you a curve

And you finally realize, you’re on your last nerve

Just cross your fingers, and hope for the best

Forget what they need, what you need is your rest

They offer a moment, for you to relax

Only to find out, they’ll be taking it back

It’s then that you feel, your life has been foozled

They got you again, you’ve been cheated, bamboozled
