Jerry's Poem

The other day, Jerry from Laughing at Wine 

(go visit his blog there for some of his offbeat

humor, it's hilarious) has sent me a nice poem

and as he is gracious enough to let me, I'd like

to share it here.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.


 

FENNY’S POEMS

 

I read some of your poems today

they remind me of me

back when I had an inclination to feel 

 

your words were drawn from a familiar

well of despair

and quench for awhile the need

to rail at God 

but nobody does that without consequences

and God knows, me and you have had

enough of that

 

I’ve heard in order to be happy

one should wish for what was

and what’s to be

I can’t reconcile that

it would be a

cutting on the heart

 

feelings do seem to

get in the way of life

though they’re good for stomping on

I’m proof of that

you can’t take them to the bank

no money made with um

or borrowed on

 

they hang heavy in a sack

like gold ingots over one’s shoulders

and seem valuable until you try

to pay for toothpaste

at the checkout

 

well never you mind

some good will come of um

I’ll bore a friend

embarrass a child or

coach a tear

and if you got ideas

I’ll try them too only,

you go first

I received this blog award from Scott at Poetic Leanings

and I'm supposed to list three things that make writing

good and powerful, as well as pass the award along.

 

Well here it is:

          - it should create an emotional response

          - or vivid imagery

          - and have authenticity

 

I pass this award along to:

          - BloggingPoet.com

          - Stick Poet Super Hero

          - TUMBLEWORDS

          - Jo Janoski's Blog

          - ... why paisley???

 

and thank you very much Scott,

Fenny

Can You Believe It

Another year of scribbling here has flown

seems like time flies faster and faster

the older we've grown

 

I'd like to thank all of you who visit here

and read my bla bla

and have sent me so many cheers

Hope to see all of you back

the upcoming year
