If Only..

All it took, a moment
I slipped up in my life
Stumbled into trouble
With my lovely wife
One moment with her
My eyes left the road
Never saw it coming
The little yellow load
A slippery small peel
In midst of the zoo
Waiting, I fell for it
And fell missus too
Her fury rain began
Curses filled the air
Attracted the public
By the dozens there
If only I had seen it
I’d have got it straight
After all behind her
The tigers lay in wait

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
