I think this may be the first poem I posted at this lovely site...not sure?....But, it's what I'm doing right at the moment......

In writing this poem I'm feeling depleted,
Hoping and praying it's not soon deleted.
It doesn't concern sex or passion or hate,
Just making words rhyme as I try to relate.

It has little meaning, just a word here and there,
No thoughts or real meaning that I'm trying to share
Just some "BS" and words that may rhyme,
Just kinda writin' and wasting my time.

I guess I could say I'm doing 'something'
But in reality I'm writin' 'bout nothing,
But my paragraphs show it's written in verse,
If I put my mind to it, it'd probably be worse.

P.S.
Today Suthern and I shared a beer,
She's such a sweet lady and dear,
But now it's back to my boring type living,
That's why I'm sitting here only thumb twiddling!

Like yours, my thumbs are twiddling
have been since dawn
work is slow, so here I am
stifling a yawn

If you could only call me
we'd giggle on the phone
but here I sit in my cubicle
bored and all alone.

No one's here to share a beer with
and since I don't really drink
I'll just sit back and try
to catch a snooze I think.

Cute one Toe!

Yes but Toe, some people write about nothing and mean so much more, others write only about BS, glad you're in the former category.. ))

PS: Missed you

I'd hardly call your life boring. That word doesn't fit the character. Very colorful, I'd say, and lots of fun.

I'm just wondering
how you do it,
twiddle those thumbs
and type at once?
There must be
a trick to it.

Glad to see you posting Toe

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Well, I'm glad you're still around here Toe! You can write about anything as well as nothing...as long as you stay put here where you belong! Delightful poem, Toe!

Awwww... you sweet thumb twiddler! *G* I'm glad you stayed so well occupied while I was driving back with a grin on my face and a song in my heart (which came right on out of my mouth... LOL... but I had my windows up so my caterwauling didn't bother anyone. *G*)

Thank you, sweet Toe, for a delightful morning... and a poem that put that smile right back on this mug of mine! *G*
