Draw From the Reader


A Lovely Picture

Home grown

Catching the wild eyes of any passerby

Step it up

Pull in every direction

One on one

Put the gloves on

Digging into the passion

Giving it all you have

Endless hours of slow torture

Only to work and rework

Connecting on all levels

Stimulating your imagination

Begging for your attention

Igniting the fire

That will continue to burn

Long after the flame is out

Finding the powers to be

Rattling the brain

Triggering every emotional connection

The final leap

Jaw dropping suspense

To make you yell or scream from the top of your lungs

Silently weep when no one is looking

So natural and all out beautiful

Taking away the loneliness

Of a quiet Monday afternoon

Bringing out the pleasure of a family

Sharing laughs and joys

That happened all week

Making Sunday a fun day

Wherever you are

Pick up the phone

Say hey

To all those people you meant to see

But don't get around to it

It doesn't have to be hard

It is quite easy

Watch me

I was just thinking of you

I didn't want another second to pass

Without showing you

I am so glad we could connect

Life is busy

I will let you go

Until next time

Take care

You are in my thoughts and prayers

Ann Carr I feel honored that you connected with my poem. I always try to do a little bit more but then it always seems to be never enough. So instead of being sad I thought why not reach out to those we care about deeply and feel the same way about us but deal with the same time crunch. So we can all join together in our struggles and the joy of friendships. Thank you so much. Have an amazing day.

Great poem and a lovely idea, thinking of all those we haven't managed to see or talk to. I often do that and feel guilty but then I realise it's just the same for most of them. However, I'm much better at redressing that than I used to be.

Enjoyed reading this today!

Shyron E Shenko Every day I count my blessings. I close my eyes at the end of each day and say a quiet prayer to touch those who I didn't see or hear from. Thinking of still another way to make peace and friends. I believe we all our doing so much and going in so many directions. Life is the best action movie ever written. Thank you so much for all that you say and do. I hope your holiday was filled with all the love and joy you could ever want.

Gypsy Rose Lee When my day gets quiet and I am alone to think. I back track like a hunter who is in the woods. I go looking for clues I might of missed the first time to where all the most exciting times have been. What made them happen. Who made them possible. How I can share and make so many new memories that will give me the same feeling or better. These moments of my life I live for. The rest of my life I can let go. It got me to this point and served their purpose but there is no reason I have to keep reliving all the times that made me sad or unhappy. There is too much good still to find and explore. So many things in nature I haven't seen or heard about. So many stories I haven't read. So many people I care about I haven't told. I am so happy to see you visit and share my day with me. Holidays are reminders of life how it should be every day. Celebrating in our own way the beautiful days we have been given. Not taking life and the people in our life for granted. Like so many do. May your holiday be healthy and filled with love. The love that only grows stronger from friendships and the best times of your life you have experienced.

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on December 20, 2017:

Many blessings to you and yours this holiday season.

Shyron E Shenko I appreciate you thinking of me. This is the first time in my life I was ever called Jamie. I thought it was funny. For a few minutes I got to be someone else. To all the Jamie's out there have a great day. Kari Poulsen Life is such an incredible thing. Living it is so exciting and different all the time. I can't think of a better way to spend my days and my nights talking to all the people that make my life interesting and fulfilling. Wishing you both a glorious morning.

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on December 17, 2017:

Sorry Dream On I called you Jamie, the comment was meant for you.

Blessings and hugs

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on December 17, 2017:

Jamie, this is beautiful and I enjoyed it very much.

Blessings and hugs.
