Perhaps, One Day

Poets are a funny lot.
They write of things that we forgot,
wish for a future that wont be,
describe our life and history.
They write of love and foolish things.
Then question what the future brings,
forgive the past that we regret
remembering while we forget.
They tell us we can read their book
then hand us one to take a look.
And somewhere we will find a link
Agreeing with the way we think.
Yes, poets are a funny breed
who try to satisfy their need
by giving life a ray of sun.
Perhaps, one day, I'll be one!

------------------
I look forward to tomorrow, while looking back on the past. But today is the day I am living. And I expect it to be a great day!

Thanks, Hoot. I dug this out of my archives. It was an expression of my hope, 'way back when'. My acceptance by other poets at this site, whos work I also admire, tells me my hope was not in vain.

That hope certainly wasn't in vain, Ohme... great poem!

Toe: Funny BREED? *G* You? You're definitely one of a kind, sweets... though we can wish there were more of you! *G* Now if only we could convince you of your talent and contributions?

Enjoyed this poem. How does it feel to be one of the funny breed you talked about back then?

Toe, I noticed you didn't let me down, LOL

Suthern, Denise, thanks for reading and replying.

Martie, even back then, I knew I was a funny breed. Just was not sure of the poetry talent. Feels nice to be one of them,
