paperweight…

a shout out to tess kincaid and magpie tales for inspiring this little poem in my muse. it was an image that got me thinking, and this is what cropped up… also shared with d’verse poets pub at their open link night and  meeting the bar features; and the poet’s rally


my world is on paper,
my words are there too;
all my thoughts held,
in sheets, but no glue.
will a wind unknown,
blow my world apart?
that’d leave me broken,
quite far from a start;
or spread my thoughts
to the people around;
and later return here,
where them I’d found.
I know not tomorrow,
but for it I shall wait;
till then I shall write,
for my world I fight,
a kingly paperweight.

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.

  5. Isn't that what writers are?Words and thoughts from heart spread on paper?Will the wind blow your world apart?It would be nice if once blown, people will catch every single piece of the paper, read it and find who wrote them…of course, it is Leo!Both beautiful and poignant lines, again from the rhymer without reason… πŸ™‚

  7. ha nice…what i like on putting fragments of our world on paper is when i re-read these poems later, i'm right where i was when i wrote it – even if it's months later…there are the same colors again, the same mood, the same emotions..somehow magical…

  9. I like your poem a lot.Β  However, for myself I would say my world is not so much on paper as it is in my poetry blog…no 'hard copy.'Β Β  I think computers/ blogs are the new "paper."Β  A very thoughtful write in response to the Mag & dVerse.
