TIME-OUTS & WAITING-CINQUAIN THURSDAY

I've decided this will be ORIGINAL POETRY WEEK on my blog. I proclaim today Cinquain Day!

TIME-OUTS
If time-

outs are my time
to think things out, why then
do you come in and tell me what
to think?

WAITING
Sun-baked
beetle flails on
his back, waiting for the
curious puppy to wake up
and play.

  1. See? Tink would have been jealous that you posted the perfect poem for Destructo, but not for her. And now...time outs. Fabulous.

  2. Thanks, Jacqui.

    Now I need a goat poem for Elise's goats....oh, but I wrote a wacky-funny goat pb instead and Ronnie just sent it out:)

    I don't know why but Elise's goats inspire me.

  6. I never sent it out to publishers so....nope.

    I have so many poems but finding the 'right' theme that will sell is a toughie. Plus, these days poetry collections seem doa.
