Write Me Up

Official writing with some random thoughts

Here’s a poem! February 26, 2011

Filed under: General Blog-tastic Writings — Dorothy Lynn @ 7:29 pm

I apologize in advance for the funky format…for some odd reason I can’t figure out the spacing options in this thing. This poem was published in Echoes of Creativity and Conscience, the 2010 East Central Colleges’ Literary Competition Anthology. (Wow, that is a mouthful…)

 

Rainy day’s travel

 

fueled by chocolate and

tea from my Japanese pot,

old, yet new, for me

at least.

Watching the travels of a

lonely man and

wishing that I too could be paid for wandering

aimlessly.

Even the elephants’ eyes

seem to carry that

otherworldy wisdom of

the east

as they slowly frolic

and calmly joke with

the humans who respect

their hugeness.
