Julie & Jack

Julie ran into Jack today,

outside a small cafe

long ago she’d moved away,

something they’d both hated

but now she was back again

There was a time,

they both remembered when

they were inseparable,

the best of friends

As they looked into each others faces

there were things there time can’t erase

Like the bright shining light of Love

that never faded

Thank You All

Dear all, thank you for continuing to take time out of your day to grace this blog with your presence. Keeping it open & active is something I definitely don’t regret.

Unfortunately, with that said, I will be away from this blog for a very BRIEF period, due to circumstances and necessary obligations that can’t really be helped. No need for anyone to get worked up, I and my family are doing well overall.

I will be back around 1st of November at the latest.

Rebecca (Another Poetic Story)

A kind of free verse piece

Rebecca worked in a bookstore in a small town, that’s often how her days were spent. She chose that career as more than just a way to pay for the rent, or gas to get around. She adored books.

She’d say they were some of her truest loves in every sense you could possibly think of.

Anyone who knew her would say she was more than a bit obsessed, some might even think it unhealthy, something needing to be seriously addressed.

She read voraciously, everything from full novels to poetry.

She wanted to be a writer too from an early age.

She felt sometimes that other aspects of life could be mundane, she sometimes felt trapped like a caught animal in a cage, but when she’d write, or when she’d read, or help another avid reader find the books they need that’s when she felt the most free.

Surprises (A short poetic story)

“Find a good woman and settle down” that’s the advice of everybody in town, but John, he’s still busy building his dream from the ground up, says he’s not ready, or looking yet for that kind of Love.

His parents, they worry that he’ll let it slip through his hands, because he’s too distracted with his original plans.

Nonetheless, they know it’s his life to live, they’re just there for him with all the familial Love and advice they can give.

He says “I appreciate your concern, I really do, and I respect your advice and your point of view, thank you for respecting mine too, even though I don’t think like you.”

He continues, “maybe I’ll be ready one day, if the right one comes, I promise not to turn her away…I know not everything can be planned right down to the letter, and sometimes the surprises are even better.”

Pages

Successfully got my ISP switched over, glad to be back you all!

I hope life’s been treating you all well

I’d love to gather w/my readers

& sit for a spell, just chilling out

Listening to any stories you may

have to tell

As for me, I got a new book of poetry

for my anniversary, it’s a pretty neat read

You’d know the poet if I wrote his name

His work’s been around for ages

It can be pretty inspiring

Watching a fellow poet bleed their feelings out

onto reams & reams of pages
