Keep It Simple

Written as part of A Prompt Each Day, Prompt 1, which gives the topic “Simple” as inspiration for a post. Also sharing with Poetry Pantry.

Keep It Simple

how difficult it is
to keep it simple;
the heart wants
to lose its burden,
in a river of words,
deep its currents
flowing complex,
forgetting rhyme
and even time,
so none can find
the only reason
it came to flow,
or what it shows;
how difficult it is
to keep it simple.

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.

      Thank you for stopping by, Old Egg. 🙂

    • Glad you liked the imagery 🙂 It’s what usually happens to me. When I’m feeling heavy with sadness or such, it flows into a poem. 😀

      Thank you for stopping by, CC 🙂

  2. That felt like you peeked into my heart and read what was in there before you sat down to write…
