Pleasantries and small talk-
To while away the time.
How fleeting are the days we have to live.
I strive to voice my passions-
In tawdry lines of rhyme…
I guess that’s all I really have to give.
A glimpse into my visions-
Which serve to push me on.
The thought of past adventures to impart.
A hint of faded romance-
Nostalgia, déjà vu-
The very essence of poetic art.
An effort, just one effort-
Like every foolish man….
To leave my mark, a trace upon the land.
Our impact is so miniscule…
They scarcely know we’re gone-
Like footprints disappearin shifting sand.

Footprints in the sand that quickly disappear.  So true. Nice piece!
Gunslinger, last evening I watched a movie about the capture of Geronimo.  How about a poem about that infamous indian warrior.

Finding a poem from you is always a pleasant surprise. Good job

 "Glory remains unaware of my neglected dwelling where alone
I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."
