I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.


A Little Extra Time

Found some reading time today

in my car during soccer

practice between my coffee

picking up the next

Found time to dance a little

between the beat of shopping

cart wheel clacks that never miss

to sing a love song

Through the hustle and bustle

I found you for a quick hug

to break away from the list

share a sudden glance

Found time to find you again

thankful for allowed blessings

little things in hurried times

place in universe

Found time to find me again

digging through thistle and thorn

offering hand to myself

to pick myself up

Says a lot and very powerful piece! You've come a long way from blogging, eh? Yes, those moments are rare but precious. Each soul needs its own respite. Sweet!

That was fun, Jamie, and all so true!

Charming upbeat verse Jamie! Life is just like that.
