Keeper Of The Flame
Email Poem | Today's Poetry


Thrice filtered words were sprinkled around
Some frolicked a bit, others made no sound
A few angry ones lay scattered on the ground
Having been expunged for decency's sake....

_ ___________ _
No powderpuff words, only those with meaning;
Gathered through many years of gleaning
Then passing muster by careful screening;
Precious words, with meanings at stake....

                          _ ___________ _
All pearls of wisdom are melting into paste
Having developed somewhat of an aftertaste
Reminiscent of either total loss, or waste
With color fading, gleaming wan, or fake....

                                    _ ___________ _ 

Common language to state a common remark
I don't want to leave anyone in the dark
My bite is every bit as mild as my bark
Maybe this stab at poetry is all a mistake....

                              _ ___________ _

To anyone who has made it this far,
You must be more intelligent by far
Than he who wrote this from a distant star
Leaving all understandable trailing in his wake....
