I never write poetry. My mom and my brother are really good poets but I just wasn’t blessed with that talent. However, I recently wrote a poem for my brother and I didn’t hate it so I thought I would share it with you. Do you like to write poems?
rocking in his wooden boat
dashes of hope
eyes sparkling as he glides
no where to hide
fishes for love
throws them all back
hand in glove
sees the moon as a bowl of milk
drinks it down
feels the guilt
swaying gently with the waves
how did he get off course?
tour de force
the wind slowly chaps his skin
shivers at night
just let him win.

I’d say you inherited the gene Dear Lily. … Because you so can write poetry.
Ahh you are too kind, dear friend. Thank you very much. That means a lot coming from a true poet such as yourself!
I don’t read or write poetry as I don’t really see the point of it. Stories or reviews about the stuff that is sold in Lush shops are much better.
Ya never know, Michael. A poem might strike a chord with you if you give it the chance. But I know what you mean. I don’t mind reading poems because they usually don’t take that much time out of my day haha. But I’ll stick to Lush reviews for you.
You can’t write poetry? Really Lily? REALLY? This was fantastic!!
Haha I think this was just a one-time fluke. But thanks Lily, you’re the best!
Lily This is excellent!! I absolutely love it! I hope you ‘ll write more!
Aww thanks Linda! I’m glad you liked it! I’ll try writing more.
I highly encourage you to do so Lily!!
I don’t know why you don’t think you’re good at poetry.
Do you just ignore the urge when you have it?
Kind of. Well, I’ve written poems in the past and they’re pretty bad. I have this urge to make everything rhyme even though it’s not necessary. But I’m gonna keep trying and maybe I’ll get more confident. Thanks Guap!
For never writing poetry, you’ve certainly done an incredible job! Love the “moon as a bowl of milk, drinks it down…”
Genius! And lovely. Thanks for sharing, Lily..
Thanks so much Brigitte! I’m glad you liked it! I’ll try writing more and post the pieces I’m most proud of haha. I’m sure there will be many stanzas hidden away in my notebook.
Thanks for your kind words 🙂
Brought tears to my eyes. Congratulations, Lily. A poet is born.
Wow! Thanks Addie. Glad it could elicit emotions! I’ll try to write more 🙂
You are most definitely a poet, lily! So inspiring!
Thank you dahhhling! You’re sweet.
You are braver than me. I don’t think I’ve ever even attempted a poem. Mine would come off as more a rap song.
Haha yeah writing poetry is one of those things that is so hard but people make it look really easy.
Rap songs are a type of poetry in my book! I think that would be cool!
Well, I may just do it on one of my future posts. If I do, I’ll let you know and you can tell me how bad it is compared to your lovely poem.
Lily its a long time since I commented but I would love to put YOUR POEM on my poetry blog, see it below.
Oh wow thanks Harry, that sounds great. I’m very flattered. Go right ahead.
No worries about the comments, by the way. I think it’s been a long time since I’ve been over to yours too. I think we’re even 😉
I’m not a poet, but I like this piece, Lily.
Thank you kind sir. I’m glad you liked it.
