back after a rest with 50 WORDS

Hey, world-out-there, It's closing in on a year
since I last posted, shameful. Reason: I'd run
out of odds and ends of poetry items and
could only imagine pasting up my own
work, but today thought, well, and what the
hell, why not do that until something more
engaging came along.

So...a recent short one that seemed
appropriate for breaking a long silence:

50 WORDS

I gave up argument some years ago
along with cigarettes and misery,
but the words still hang around...
gotta cut down to a daily ration

always saving out a few
in case comes along a pressing need
to compose a bit of loveliness
to whisper to a lovely lady.

every lady could use a loveliness whispered
too much shouting going on these days
daily rationing is okay too
only if you pick out the juicy bits to savor
and there seems to be a world of pressing need
that 'something more engaging' is coming
slouching toward redemption
keep posting

Thanks, NancyG for the kind comment --
always a wonder to be gifted with words
from a sympathetic stranger!
